Starting a business can be a very crucial and a hard decision to make, but once you get the ball rolling and create it there’s no going back, it’s where the grind truly begins. I’m going to present you with awesome groups that will help your business grow.
Many if not most will turn to social networks in order to gain traffic to their sites or social platforms. There are so many platforms to pick from and when you start it will make your head spin, I know it did for me.
I didn’t know where to start, at first I was posting to all the social media accounts I had like, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, Google +, etc. Not to mention all the other platforms people were telling me were a MUST to grow my business. Now, in the beginning, I tried to keep up with them all, I would wake up early and start posting on each one but there was a slight problem, this would end up consuming my day. I noticed that I was on my phone 80% of the day, it became daunting to try and manage all these accounts. I almost wanted to quit.
The First Step In The Right Direction
I had to do something to change my strategy, so I turned to google to see out of all these platforms which were the best one for me, where would I be able to share my content and get the help I needed? Well by the title you may already know the answer. It was Facebook and not just regular Facebook but I would need to join Facebook groups. Now I was sort of familiar with Facebook groups, I was constantly being added to them but I never knew the power it could have on my business.
Once I started to search for groups that were part of my niche and could help me grow my business I was amazed, there were so many to choose from. There’s literally a group for everything. Most of these groups will be “closed groups” that means you will need the admin’s approval to join, they may even ask you some questions in order to get accepted but it’s actually pretty simple to get accepted so don’t sweat it.
Why are these Facebook groups key to growing your business and getting exposure? Well, these groups are targetted groups which mean the right audience will be in there without you having to find them one by one.
Inside most of these, there will be posts made by the admin for example posts that will let you share your latest picture on Instagram so that others will go and like it and may even end up following you. These types of actions will benefit your business in order to gain exposure.
Let me tell you though that you want to keep track of these strategic groups you follow because these can get pretty confusing if you don’t keep track of which one you posted in and at what time, trust me on that one, it happened to me I had to create a list to keep up with it.
So now you may be asking yourself well Kimberly what are the best 5 Facebook groups for me? I’m going to give you 5 different group categories and 3 groups you should join for each. Let’s get started.
** I recently made my own blogging group come join us in Let’s Get Blogging
*Tip: If you want to get into more Pinterest group boards, the best way to find the ones who are accepting new member is through Facebook groups. Just look up “Pinterest board groups”.
**Check out my Youtube For Beginners series HERE
* I only found 2 good twitter groups
These are my favorite groups that help me attain an audience and create a supportive atmosphere. It’s great to be part of a community when you are trying to achieve something and just have a place to ask questions and get the help you need in order to help you succeed. These are definitely it for me. Make sure to always read the pinned post to these groups and or look for the group rules. Many have strict rules and not following them can get you kicked out without a warning.
Bonus tip *Start a Facebook page for your business and let a Facebook community group help you expand it. Although there are many steps to gaining traffic to a Facebook page, a group could definitely help you out.
