What is a Facebook Group?
A facebook group is an online place at facebook, there people with the same interests can come together without traveling. This groups can be open, closed or secret.
The 3 different levels of group privacy
- Open – Everyone on Facebook can view the group and join.
- Closed – Everyone on Facebook can view the group, but anyone who asks to join must be approved by an administrator. Only group members can view the content within the group.
- Secret – No one can see the group apart from members, access to the group is via invitation only.
Other as with a facebook page, every member in the group can post something. They can discuss together and talk about their experiences. They also can learn new ways for their purpose from the other members and the admin of course.
Why would I want to create a facebook group?
The admin can remove unwanted posts and can post also. As admin you can stick your most important post at the top. That’s handy because the thing you want to promote will always be on the top and seen by all members. So having an own group gives a lot of ways to promote your products for free. You also can get new customers, because new people will come into the group through your members, if they like the group. Customers you would other never reached. Groups are really great for free facebook promotion.
Hoe much work is having a facebook group?
You have to look every day at your group at least once, more is better. In begin you can make rules about what you don’t want to see in your group, but there are always some naughty people hoe go against the rules. You have to delete wrong post, looking out for people hoe spam the group and invite people.
To make your group actief you have to be actief. Post comments, like some posts, give them ideas about what they interested in and don’t post only your advertisement, but also some stuff they could be interested in. Quotes are always loved, funny pictures, a video that fits in your group or just some personal things that makes you human and not only the admin or the one hoe promotes his products.
Tip: if you’re a member off another group doe the same, people will listen to you more and will see you as someone hoe knows there he is talking about.
