@Fox @Lex DeVille @Tom.V ? I know you’ve build Facebook groups and/or other communities.Has anyone built a large Facebook Group before?
I'm in the agency owner space and there are tons of FB Groups with huge communities that biz owners have created. And they're making money from them too while massively increasing their brand.
Eg. 10,000 person FB groups in the marketing agency space
The engagement, brand equity, value, etc seems very high to have a large FB Group.
I'm going to launch one, so I just wanted some thoughts on if anyone has had experience with them and any tips.
Facebook Group Building Tips:
- Have a good Facebook profile that "funnels" people into your group
- Post valuable content in other groups
- Automated facebook friend requests/group invites to people in your niche
- Shout outs from other group owners
Interested to hear everyone's thoughts on creating (and actually scaling) Facebook Groups for your business.
I’ve only a small Facebook group and it’s for people who’ve bought my course. I’ve built a couple of forums in the past but didn’t like running them. I like being a mod in here because I can pop in and out, don’t feel I *have* to answer queries, and there’s a whole community and culture already.
I personally don’t have “community“ as a marketing channel. I’d rather just run ads. Getting feedback and helping people is good of course. Just be wary of what “successful” looks like. If you’re at 10k members then what will that look like for you?
Here’s my thoughts on how to use forums and Facebook groups for business purposes:

Just my 2c. I’ve seen massive Facebook groups that obviously bring a lot of visibility (and hopefully sale) for their owners. Some have over 100k members, with hundreds of posts a day, and dozens of admins.
