Hey friend, we are talking Facebook groups today! This little obsession of mine has helped me launch, grow, and sell my blog, gain tons of subscribers and traffic, and earn $20K+ from blogging! Social media in general (especially Pinterest and Facebook) is great for traffic but Facebook groups are gold! And I’ll tell you why.
Facebook groups are collaborative groups on Facebook where you can learn, share, trade, buy, sell, and more! There are groups are just about everything:
- Local buy/sell groups
- Vegan lifestyle
- Local play dates
And so much more!
How to use groups for your blog
Groups are great for your blog. Not only can you meet new friends and network, but there’s tons of opportunity to gain traffic, get more social media followers, collaborate, etc.
I manage a group called Pinning Ain’t Easy. It has over 900 members and is for bloggers who share a love for Pinterest and engage in pinning, repinning, and other engagement activities to help create an active, engaged Pinterest account and blog.
There are many more Facebook groups and I participate every day!
How do you know what groups to join?
1.) Head to Facebook and do a search
2.) Search for your niche. Search for “blogging.” Search for “business.” And,related terms.
3.) Find groups and join.
