Facebook groups are a great way to connect with other people and gain potential customers. To do it the right way, you need to know some “do’s” and “don’ts”.
Do you know how to build a community with Facebook Groups? Entrepreneur Network partner Salma Jafri shares her insights.
A Facebook group named “Pubs Your Dad And Gramps Drank In” recalls classic Australian pub culture.
Facebook groups are a LOT of work to build, manage and maintain. If you build your own, you need to be prepared to dedicate the time it takes to support the group as a leader. If you’re in someone else’s group, you need to respect the work they are doing to build their community. They didn’t create their group for you to waltz in and pitch your products and services all over the place.
The do’s and don’ts of Facebook Groups:
- Show up daily and manage your own group effectively by sharing great content, reviewing member requests and deleting spam.
- Contribute in other people’s groups on a regular basis.
- Don’t start pitching your stuff in someone else’s group unless there is a promotional thread where you are being invited to share.
- Don’t share your latest blog like clockwork each week in every group you’re part of unless it is YOUR group.
You already have an audience on your video platform, and you’re good about sharing your content on social media. More than that, you already realize the importance of interacting with your audience through social media.
But, replying to comments on a video can only take you so far.
Entrepreneur Network partner Salma Jafri explains the importance of building your own community in a Facebook group, which makes it easier for others to find your content and interact with the people they care about in one location.
A BUNCH of old drinking buddies have launched a Facebook group “Pubs Your Dad And Gramps Drank In” to invoke memories of the days when picking a beer meant deciding between a pot of VB or Carlton Draught.
The group is giving older Australians a chance to relive history, and younger people a glimpse at life before craft beer, when a glass of Coolabah was the most daring selection on the menu.
Keep reading to see how the Facebook group “Pubs Your Dad And Gramps Drank In” helps keep memories of old Australian pubs.
