#319: Facebook Group Engagement: Strategies You Need To Know

June 15, 2020

Listen on…

Facebook groups, you gotta love them. And as an entrepreneur, you gotta have one!

Especially during the COVID-19 crisis, people are spending more time online looking for the answers and guidance they need, and one place they are looking is on Facebook.

This means, if you don’t have a Facebook group, you could be missing out on potential customers and loyal audience members.

Or, maybe you’ve started a group, but you’re struggling to engage your members. Either way, you’re going to love this episode and walk away with tons of ideas to get your group rockin’ and rollin’.

I have over 38 thousand members between my free and paid Facebook groups, so I know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t. In this episode, I spill it all!

We’re going to talk about my favorite tips and tricks for setting a Facebook group up, engaging your members, and ensuring you don’t hear crickets when you post.

Here’s what I talk about…

  • [06:17] It’s important to define your group focus and who your group is for. You gotta do this because it helps you to find clarity in the direction of your group and content.
  • [09:24] Always, always, always make your group private! Why? Because it makes your group more intimate and allows you to have more control.
  • [11:11] Have fun and use the “ask questions” feature to make sure applicants know your rules and to find out more about your members. I personally like to ask the “magic wand” question, which helps me to learn what topic my audience wants to hear. You can also use this section to gather emails!
  • [13:08] Mention your Facebook group everywhere to get new members.
  • [15:55] Get used to showing up consistently in your group — this is the difference between winning or losing. Map out a content calendar for your Facebook group. Decide how often you are going to post and how often you are going to go in and comment and make sure you schedule these tasks into your weekly planner.
  • [21:59] Do a weekly or monthly Facebook Live. Not sure what to talk about? You can do Q & As, storytime, hot seats, or a cocktail hour! Pay attention to how your group resonates and keep doing what's working.
