The most counterintuitive (and effective) advice on using Facebook Groups
Today I’m talking about something that everyone likes to talk about.
It’s interesting because so many people talk about it but no one has any freaking idea what to actually do with Facebook groups.
Facebook groups essentially are communities. That’s why Facebook created Facebook groups. So treat them that way!
You have this community whether it’s 200 people or 200,000 people who are there because they have something in common and that common factor is you. What massive waste of opportunity that you don’t engage those people and treat them like a freaking community.
The Power Intro
That is why the first post should be a compliment when you go into other people’s group. First post is a compliment, second post is a power intro.
A power intro is something that does three things.
1. Gets them to see you as in interesting person b2. The second thing it should make you look like you know your shit.
3. Number three, they need to find you intriguing enough to click on your name,and find you and join your email list.
Open your freakin eyes!
Can’t you see there are open threads? Can’t you see there are people looking for help and support? It’s a community dammit. Contribute to the discussion, contribute to an engagement and then drop your thing.
Watch your tone
When you go into a community be respectful, you don’t have to be the way they are but just be respectful of their values, their opinions and their norms.
