So, How to get the right members to join your group?
One of the very effective Facebook group strategies is to breakdown your goal to smaller milestones using more than 1 group.
For instance, if your end goal is to create a group about an Instagram post scheduler tool.
Start by creating a Facebook group that targets anyone interested in digital marketing.
When your group has a considerable number of members, create a second narrower niche group, for people who are specifically interested in all social media scheduling tools.
Announce your second group in your first one with teasing posts.
Finally, create a more precise group that talks about Instagram scheduling tools.
How to make your Facebook group popular using other groups without being spammy?
There are healthier tactics to get more members in a Facebook group than continuously posting your group link to the wall without the admin’s permission.
Ask the group admin if you can collaborate with them, share your articles with the group, or go on a live session where you’d advise in your area of expertise.
Growing a Facebook group and making it popular doesn’t happen once you create the group. You have to promote it the right way to the right audience.
