When you create a Facebook group for your followers to join and interact in, you want to be able to use it as part of your marketing strategy. Facebook Groups will be a collection of some of your most loyal customers and some new ones who are interested in the content you’re sharing. 
 
There is no point in creating a Facebook Group for your business if you’re not planning on building relationships with the people that are in it – you need to make your clients feel valued and respected for the support they’re giving you. 
 
 
 
When you create a Facebook group for your followers to join and interact in, you want to be able to use it as a part of your marketing strategy.

There is no point in creating a Facebook Group for your business if you’re not planning on building relationships with the people that are in it – you need to make your clients feel valued and respected for the support they’re giving you. 
 
Here are some ways you can create relationships in Facebook groups, and why you need to maintain them. 
 
 
 
 
Facebook groups are extremely beneficial for many business owners. They have become a big marketing tool that businesses are starting to understand and use. Facebook groups allow you to create a community around your business, helping you to really interact with your core audience and provide tips and information you may not want to give on your public page. Facebook groups also provide a direct line of communication to your audience, they allow meaningful customer relationships and they are used to grow your community and engagement. 
 
With up to 1.4 billion people being members of groups across Facebook these are definitely something to invest in. So, if you’re trying to promote your business online, increase your traffic and reach, Facebook groups is the best place to do it. 
 
If you run a business and have a presence on Facebook, it’s likely that you’ve seen or thought of ways that would be best to market your business on there. If, however, you’ve tried and it hasn’t worked out for you, it probably makes you believe that Facebook Marketing simply doesn’t work for your business, and that it’s pointless trying to use your own money to run ad campaigns, or post engaging content to attract clients. 
 
Whilst that idea is understandable, Facebook marketing is a viable option for all businesses looking to expand their presence on social media. It takes time, but once you’ve found a way to get results, you won’t look back. 
 
Many businesses have seen results from Facebook Marketing that they likely wouldn’t have received had they not decided to promote on social media.  
 
So, your running social media pages for your business, but you’re looking to get them to become an efficient and vital part of your marketing strategy in the next year. But how do you do that? Whether you’re new to social media marketing or you’ve been doing it for years, results can be achieved if you follow these tips and apply them to your social media strategy over 2022. 
 
With more and more content being created, along with the ever-expanding elements being added to all social media platforms, attention spans are becoming shorter. A long form, text ad is not longer something that will grab most of the user’s attention and will most likely be scrolled past and ignored. Facebook Ads need to be eye catching and are a cost-effective way to market your business on social media. You can even create a ‘lookalike’ audience if you run Ads on FB, so you’ll be targeting similar people, giving you the chance to expand your audience beyond your targeting.  
 
 
If you own a business, it’s often expected that you have at least one form of social media. Whether it’s on a site specifically tailored to the more professional side of things such as LinkedIn, or one that is used mainly for interaction, connection and personal updates like Facebook, your business should have an online presence. However many business owners start their social media pages and see no immediate response, or find that they don’t have the time to run their page along with their business, which makes them believe that social media doesn’t work for them. However, it can and will work if you do it right, and one of the best options available to you is outsourcing. 
 
Outsourcing is the process of handing your businesses social media accounts to a company that is trained with the expertise to successfully manage each of your pages. Following tips from online ‘gurus’ and using companies that haven’t proven that they themselves know how they can help you is not likely to give you success. Instead go for a company who has tried and tested different methods themselves and found the solution to increasing engagement and growth and social media, so they can help you make positive progress online. 
 
 
On the 9th November Facebook launched a new, more open Public Groups experience, that will grow your group’s reach, membership, and participation. 
 
Helping to grow communities and help more people become part of communities. Their goal is to grow diverse perceptions and increase authentic conversations across Public Groups, while giving admins powerful new tools to keep their groups safe and the quality of conversations high. 
 
The new Public Groups experience is more accessible to people on Facebook, with many benefits for admins: 
 
• It allows the admin to easily grow their community by letting members instantly join their group. Facebook wanted to make it easy for people to join  
 
Lead generation is the process of attracting and converting your target audiences in your product or service. The goal is to guide prospects through the buyer’s journey to the end of the sales funnel. 
 
Leads are essential to the sustainability of your business, they expand your market, grow your following, boost revenue, build visibility and awareness and improve lead quality 
 
Follow these stages, be consistent and you will see success when turning your personal profile into a lead generating machine. 
 
Getting A Plan In Place 
Your business should have an effective lead generating plan in place as it makes your sales team more productive. When you develop a flow of qualified leads for your sales team, they can close more sales. A valuable plan also needs to drive people to a single offer, this is extremely beneficial for your profile, as offers help you bring back current customers and attract new ones to your business. 
 
Facebook groups are a strong marketing tool, allowing you to attract new customers and engage current ones with exclusive content, community, and support. These groups are a place to communicate about shared interests with certain people. You can create a group for anything, e.g., your family reunion, your after-work sports team, or your book club. 
 
With the power of Facebook groups for business, brands have an opportunity to build communities and long-lasting relationships with customers. As you have access to Facebook’s 2.41 billion active monthly users. 
 
There are three types of privacy settings to choose from for your Facebook group; Public, Private and Private and hidden. 
 
Public 
 
With a public Facebook group, anyone can see what members post or share. Any user who has a Facebook account can see the list of members, admins and moderators. 
 
 
TIME IS PRECIOUS 
 
Previously I did a poll asking what barriers stood in the way of people posting consistently on social media and time was a big reason. We get so busy doing the job we do that we forget to have a social media presence running as well. Having a social media presence is a major way to keep brand awareness and continue the supply of leads, enquiries or sales 
 
To maximise your time effectively you have a few options. Firstly find the time - schedule time into your diary and write your weeks worth of posts in one go and then schedule them to go out over the week. By doing the whole weeks worth in one go you make the most of the time and its blocked out in your diary every week. 
Secondly you get someone else to do it for you. This ensures the work is done and you don't have to worry about it at all. Complete peace of mind. Just ensure the person you outsource to provides quality 
 
So which one would works best for you? 
 
Personality captures the heart ❤ 
 
Bring a little personality to your business 
 
We all know the phrase "people buy from people" but yet businesses still refuse to add any personality to their marketing and social media 
 
True relationships, connections and trust is built through the "human" side of your marketing 
 
So how can you add personality to your social media business pages? 
 
1. Tell stories that draw your audience in, giving an inside sneak peak of everyday life 
 
2. Video content - Both pre-recorded and live video help people see you in a true light and showcase your personality 
 
3. Visual content with you in the picture helps show off who you are and make you memorable 
 
4. Ensure your content matches your personality. Don't write in a different tone to how you actually are or you'll put people off 
 
5. Add some humour where relevant to show you are friendly and approachable 
 
These are just a few ways personality can be added to your business socials which will make it much easier for your audience to know, like and trust you
