BUILD YOUR OWN COMMUNITY!
1.8 BILLION people use Facebook Groups monthly.
They are a POWERFUL Marketing Tool that can completely transform your business and accelerate your growth, on a scale you’ve never seen before.
You’re missing out if you haven’t started one yet:
It’s where your customers are
1.8 billion people use Facebook Groups every month. This number is only set to increase as Facebook promotes group memberships. We guarentee that your customers are already using Facebook Groups – are they in your competitors’ groups?
They enjoy generous organic reach
Reach within groups averages 5%-65% of the members vs. 2%-5% for Facebook Pages. Private groups are still ad-free, authentic and genuine, with high levels of trust and where member to member interactions make up the majority of the engagement.
They are growing exponentially
Interest in Facebook groups is up 50% since March 2020, online communities are on the rise and users are more digitally connected than ever before. Some businesses have grown their groups to over 1 million members since March this year, aided by COVID and Facebook’s push.
They are untapped for business
Facebook Groups are still consumer spaces and you should approach them as a new and unexplored opportunity with untapped potential to establish your business before competition does.
BUT DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME
Fast-track your success by learning from the best.
