Today I’m going to take you through the steps that I have personally used to grow my Facebook group by 11% in just 60 days and show you how you can do it too.
Before we dive in head first I have a word of caution.
You should NOT rely on Facebook groups to build your business, or any other platform that you do not have complete control of.
There is always the possibility that you may unknowingly violate the terms of service and potentially lose the following you have built. Instead you should use your Facebook group as a vehicle to funnel people into your email list or another system that you do have complete control over.
The 5 Steps And How You Should Approach Them:
I have achieved a steady growth of 11% over the last 60 days by increasing the frequency of my posts and focusing on adding the right type of content that engages the audience. I attribute the majority of my growth to the following:
Educational Content & Inspirational Content
The purpose of adding educational and inspirational content on a more frequent basis will help keep your audience more motivated and engaged. With a nice mix of motivation, inspiration, and education members will feel that their goals are achievable.
Ask More Questions
Asking questions has been a huge help when it comes to getting group members engaged. Your focus should be on asking the right types of questions and making sure not to over do it. You don’t want to make it all about your self. Stay focused on the type of content the reader gets excited about.
Welcome New Members
Making a welcome post and tagging new members is a great way to set the tone for the group and make everyone feel welcome.
Cross Promotion/ Social Media Promotion
A big way to make sure your group members can stay up to date on all the latest info is to promote your group to your email list and vice versa promoting your email list to your Facebook group. Promoting your group on other social media platforms such as twitter, Instagram, linked in, can all lead to more members flocking to your group.
Competitions & Giveaways
A great strategy in addition to all the ones listed above is to run some competitions and giveaways. PEOPLE LOVE FREE! So in order to increase the desirability of products I will give some away through competitions.
Overall if you make the mission of your group very clear and focus on serving your core purpose you will grow your Facebook group. Begin by implementing the ideas you have learned today and do not focus solely on new traffic. Make sure part of your focus remains on keeping your current members engaged and excited about the content you have to offer.
