Do you know how to market brands with Facebook groups? Marie-Hélène Dibenedetto, agency owner of Moondust SPRL (Twitter: @moondust_agency) tells you about new opportunities that Facebook is offering to businesses and companies.
Many companies are using Facebook to promote their business or brand. Facebook is where all customers are. There is actually one feature on Facebook that most businesses have been ignoring so far. And that’s Facebook groups.
Creating communities, that’s what you do within groups. On a group, everybody can start a conversation. Everybody can post. Everybody can interact, reply to each other. It is much more horizontal. Everybody is talking to everyone.
Basically, groups are interesting for companies, because within groups you can have conversations, and you can create relationships. People volunteer to be in the group. They go there regularly. They will get updates on their newsfeed, but they will also get into the group to browse the new discussions. You are going to get a better reach. You consistently get better engagement in groups as well. You get more reactions, more comments.

The group’s mission is simple: Exchange items with your neighbors. Give things away without asking for anything in return. The groups aim to be of manageable size and include people close enough they can walk or bike to exchange items.
