6 Clever Ways to Use Facebook Groups for Marketing Your Business

6_Clever_Ways_to_Use_Facebook_Groups_for_Marketing_Your_Business-lsfacebook groups for marketingYou probably belong to at least one Facebook group, right?

But maybe you haven't considered using a Facebook group for your business.

You should.

Today I'll show you how to leverage a Facebook group for your company.

But before you just create a group & start inviting friends to join, remember, the group is NOT about you.

Don't build a group, get people to join & then just spam them with links to your website.

So how do you make Facebook Groups part of your advanced Facebook marketing strategies?

Here are 6 clever ways:

6 Clever Ways to Use Facebook Groups for Marketing

1. Provide Value for Customers

Create a group to reward your customers & make them feel special -- for example, a group exclusively for people who have purchased your product.

Include a link on your sales page or send emails inviting customers to join.

Use the group to follow up with customers or help them if they have questions.

3. Build Your Community

Don't forget the Facebook marketing basics: it's not about you!

A group should be about its members & how the group can provide value for them.

4. Communicate with Brand Ambassadors

When considering how to start a Facebook group for business, one of the best reasons might be to keep in touch with your biggest fans.

The strong relationships you have with your top advocates & brand ambassadors are invaluable. And a group like this lets your advocates connect with each other.

A group I belong to allows me to test new product features before they're released to the public.

5. Promote Events

A Facebook group is really handy if you organize or promote lots of events.

Those who attend the activities will use the group to network & share photos & notes.

6. Strengthen Your Team

If you have a diverse team of people working from different locations, create a Facebook group to keep in touch with your employees & promote company culture.
