Why You Need to Start a Facebook Group Today

Why You Need to Start a Facebook Group Today
20May

Facebook groups are the hottest new trend in Facebook marketing. But why? What can they do that posting to your Facebook page can’t?

That’s what I’m going to show you.

Here’s everything you need to know about why Facebook groups are the new must-haves for your Facebook marketing strategy.

Better Organic Reach
Facebook has been killing business’ organic reach for years. Your posts just aren’t seen by as many people anymore; that’s where Facebook groups come in.

These present a new opportunity to engage with people interested in your industry. You get a new platform to share blogs, link to your website, and share industry tips. For example, if your company sells cosmetics, it’s in your best interest to start a makeup-lovers group where you can connect with people who care about your products.

And Facebook groups are free, people! There’s simply no reason to pass up on organic reach. Even if it’s a little more time put into your marketing strategy, it’s going to pay off when you’ve got a thriving group of potential customers who are taking cues from your brand.

Increased Brand Authority
The key to any good Facebook group is engaging conversation. But who starts that conversation? Most often that falls to the group owner, which in this case will be your business.

When you’re guiding the conversation, people will look to you for new topics about your industry: trends, best practices, etc. And that’s GREAT for your business!

You want people to look to your brand as an authority. It not only means that they’ll trust your brand, but they’ll trust your products/services, too. They’ll be more likely to make purchases from your business, recommend you to friends, etc. It pays to have people trust your brand’s expertise!

Free, Round-the-Clock Advertising
The benefit of groups isn’t just that you can talk to people who join—groups give businesses free advertising.

When someone is in a group, they’ll get suggestions for other groups based on their interests and what groups their friends are participating in. That means that your brand’s group is going to come across newsfeeds all the time without you paying a dime! And since these recommendations are targeted, you’re likely to grow your Facebook group without ever asking people to join.

New Prospects
Your Facebook group can be a great tool for growing your prospect list. Just post an opt-in offering (an ebook, a newsletter, etc.) and ask people to submit their email addresses. You’ll be able to email them all of your offerings and track them as they move through your marketing funnel.

While you could theoretically do this with your regular Facebook updates, experience has shown me that this tactic is much more effective in active Facebook groups. If you’ve got a spot where people are engaging with your brand and having conversations about your industry, then you should absolutely use that to pick up a few new prospects!

Receptive Audience for Offerings
When you post a new product, service, or deal onto your Facebook page, you might be a little disappointed by the lackluster reaction. While your Facebook page is sure to have people in your target demographic, they might not be terribly engaged with your business.

Whereas in a Facebook group, people are commenting on your posts and asking you questions. As a marketer, I can’t imagine a better audience for rolling out an announcement. So when you’ve got something new to show off, your Facebook group will be filled with people who can’t wait to try out this new offer!

Don’t Wait
Facebook groups have a ton of benefits for your business to take advantage of, but who knows how long they’ll be there? The time to act is now, so roll up your sleeves and start making your business’ Facebook group!

B2B Business professionals know they need a special approach to marketing. Their companies are often quite serious in tone. After all, their target demographic is other professionals. But that doesn’t mean social media marketing isn’t for them. Over 50 million businesses now promote themselves via social media marketing, many of these are B2B. Find out how your company can gain new leads, talent, and visibility through these methods!

1. LinkedIn. The social media platform specifically for professionals is ideal for B2B. Of all sites your marketing team should spend time on, it’s LinkedIn. But what makes LinkedIn truly effective at spreading the word is LinkedIn Groups. You have the ability to connect, network, and moderately promote through fifty individual communities.

2. Community Outreach. While other businesses are your primary focus, you also want to have a positive tone and consumer reach. Mix in updates that are community-centered. This will promote your office’s work culture and can show your potential clients that you care about their end goal as well. This type of marketing can be done on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat. Don’t forget these platforms!

3. Set Clear, Achievable Goals. Whether you’re marketing through LinkedIn, Facebook, or even Snpachat, discuss with your team what exactly your goals are. It also helps if these are quantifiable via data analytics.

4. Blogging. Blogging is important in B2C industries, but they’re particularly useful for B2Bs. Prove you know what you sell by showcasing original articles centered around your field. Then, promote them through all the previously stated avenues.

5. UGC. User-generated content (UGC) is excellent for a business focused on other professionals. Whether it’s a review, testimonial, or even success story, incorporate your pre-existing clientele into your marketing strategy.

Your ideal customer base is already online. Make sure your business is properly represented on the world’s most popular communication sites!
