The emphasis that Facebook has been putting on groups since 2017 is still very much growing. With the ability to join a group of people on the same path that you're traveling, from different backgrounds, with different experiences and different input, you'll be making new connections and learning things that you didn't even know existed!
Are you currently in any Facebook groups? I'm willing to bet you're in more groups than you can count on one hand. In fact, I bet you're in several you can't remember the point of, or that you wouldn't remember at all.
Obviously, great Facebook groups never fade into the background. There's constantly something going on. Something to learn.
If you haven't considered the benefits of joining a social media marketing Facebook group for inspiration, connections and help, we highly recommend it and we're going to really dig in and show you WHY.
Let's hit it.
You Can Ask As Many Questions As You Want
As long as it's relevant, you will finally have an outlet for all of the questions you've been DYING to ask. Whether it's what the group thinks about what Instagram will be like without likes or about how you can make your Instagram stories 10 million times better, Facebook groups have enough people from different backgrounds that the chances of you not having a response to your question is very low.
I mean, just imagine a world where you need some social media help and there's 500 experts who can help you at your fingertips. Welcome to Facebook social media marketing groups.
You Get To Build New Connections
And did we mention make so many fun new friends?? Future colleagues, acquaintances, connections, you'll meet them all. Facebook groups are so much fun for meeting new people in an authentic, creative environment where you're all relating and coming together on a single subject. And in this case: social media marketing.
There is Always Something to Learn
Whether its because others are posting questions and you're reading answers or the group admins are making sure everyone is informed, you'll always be "ahead of the game" in a good social media marketing group.
I don't know about you, but I love reading the comments on articles that people post in our social media marketing group. The subjects are usually the things I'm most passionate about when it comes to social media and it gives me an opportunity to better understand where people are coming from and what they need.
In a social media marketing group, you're always going to be learning about the best way to approach your Facebook ads or Instagram stories. And what's not to like about that???
You'll Be The First To Hear About Exclusive Events
Whether it's a fun social media round table where everyone joins in to have a say or a Facebook ad intensive for the paid advertisers in all of us, the exclusive networking events shared in social media marketing groups are definitely a huge reason to join a group.
For one, what can be better than meeting all the wonderful people in person that you are online networking with on a regular basis? And for two, you'll be able to surround yourself in all the social media knowledge you need to give your brand the boost it needs to get off the ground and soaring into the galaxy.
Sounds like loads of fun to me!
Get Encouragement From People Who Have Been In The Same Spot
Whether it's a bad CPC, a disappointing click-through rate or something else altogether, there are going to be ups and downs in the social media world. It's only fair, (and honestly easier) that you have a support network that you can fall back on when it gets frustrating and confusing.
And just gathering around each other, helping each other out, supporting each other and being there is not the only awesome perk. You can celebrate together, too!
When you finally get that coveted and perfect CPC and want to throw a party, there's a group of people who are going to be so excited for you and will definitely give you the encouragement you need to throw that party. Whether it's just a glass of wine at lunch or a donut from your favorite spot, the comments are (most likely) going to be wild.
My 2 cents? Stop traveling the difficult road alone. Give yourself the opportunity to learn, grow, experience, connect, innovate and design with the help of a large network of caring social media marketers. The perfect weapon you need to start making your business what you've always dreamed on social.
