And if you read any of the Facebook Internet marketing 'guides' a frequently repeated 'tip' is create your own group.
But I wonder how viable is this.
First I must come clean with you.
I have a Facebook account and it does help generate traffic to my sites.
I don't have my own group i.e one that I created and have no intention of starting one in the near future. But that's just me. And you may ask. Why?
Because I don't yet have the following in my Facebook account to make it work
So what are the requirements to fulfil if you want to launch a successful group on Facebook?
- Establish Reputation
- Build a large group of friends
- Have a really good freebie to give away when they join
- Make sure that you have some useful info and a couple of pillar videos to share with your group
- Moderate your group
The idea is to try and get about 500 members in your group within a short period of time. Why?
Because people are more likely to join groups that already have a large membership.
We have all had those group invites where we click to take a look at the group and find...37 members. Not one to join really!
So perhaps having my own group on Facebook is a good idea. I had better get busy building those relationships
Till next time
