Student 3 Day 21|Launching Your Facebook Group – Part 1 of 10
This is Markquis and I am in a case study for 90 days with several students on how to make money online with little to no money. The next level of this case study is to launch a Facebook Group to share the findings of the study to the world.
Details about the case study for 90 days:
- Here are some details about this case study:
- Start with $100.00
- Promote their digital business every day
- Re-Invest all profits
- Join 25 Mailers and or Traffic Surf Exchange
- Each Student will have a website and will have a blog
- Each Student will several social media accounts
Here’s how to get started:
Launching your Facebook group
- Decide on the who, what, and why of your group
Starting a Facebook group is similar to starting a blog.
You want to know who it’s for, what you’re going to provide in the group, and why you’re starting one in the first place.
If you already have a handle on your ideal audience for your blog, that’s a great place to start when creating your group.
If not, think about who you love connecting with in real life. If you could fill a room with your favorite people, what would they have in common? Your group is kind of like a party that never ends, and you want the right people hanging out on the dance floor with you.
Also, keep in mind that your members must have a specific need in common. Otherwise, you will struggle to find ways to create engagement with them.
Next, think about what you will provide in the group.
What do your future members already need in their lives?
My group, Blogging on Your Own Terms (editors note: group is no longer live), provides bloggers with a place to share their posts, get advice, and connect with other people who “get it.” Because many bloggers don’t know anyone else who blogs in the “real world,” and because they always want a place to share their content, bloggers actively look for Facebook groups.
What need can you fill for your audience members? (Hint: If you don’t know, ask them.)
Finally, figure out your “why” for starting your group.
Is it to establish yourself as an authority? To connect with people similar to yourself? To have a place to sell your products or services?
Whatever the reason, get clear about it before starting your group. And know that running a Facebook group takes a lot of work. So make sure you’re really invested in it.
