3 Simple Ways to Boost Engagement in Your Facebook Group

One of the best and quickest ways to build an online following as an expert and authority in your field, is to run your very own Facebook group.

Giving value in Facebook groups is one thing, but when you have your own community, who see your value every day, it is entirely another.    

Your group will see you as a leader, and an influencer  on the theme or subject .

This is  tribe-building, and a tribe that is learning from you and getting value from your group can be engaged. 

What is  the secret of growing  engaged Facebook community

A group that is  engaged creates possibility for business.    

I have grown several groups.  I have a 15,500 member Coaches Experts, Change Makers: Step into the Spotlight group and I learnt while growing that group that there are three ways to create a vibe that sustains realy engagement and opens the  real possibilities for generating business.

1.    Ask Questions


Actively ask questions each day to get people to participate. Even tagging people who you know would give great value or responses to your conversation starters.

Also ask fun and random questions that have nothing to do with the aim or purpose of your group. Something like "Tell us something unusual about you that we don't know".

If you group has lots of business content, add some fun content too. Fun content and a bit of silliness gets people engaging.Fun content and a bit of silliness gets people engaging.

As you ask more questions remember also to express your views more often :you want to build yourself as the leader and authority.

A little bit of controversy gets people talking and eager to share their point of view.

Take those stands about what you see in your particular industry and put it out there. ASK for comments, whether your group members agree or disagree respectfully.

Keep it an open space for discussion where not all have to agree. This makes it possible to introduce new perspectives to others in the group. 

2.    Theme Days


Theme days help promote conversation on the days when there is little else happening. We often do not know what to post or say, and a theme for the day gives a prompt when people do not know what to post or talk about.

Theme days are definitely effective. It is so clear that when my group banner is a promotion engagement goes down.  

When my theme banner, is up, engagement goes up.  

3.    Build some Buzz


You need to get people posting and interacting in the group. This does not happen automatically simply because the group is on a members feed.  

You need to find creative ways to get more engagement and entice people to come into the group, scroll through the posts, and interact.

Create some buzz with some giveaways, or a group challenge.  These types of things generate more interaction.

If you’re stuck for ideas, ask your group members what they'd like to participate in. Find out what they want.


And finally: one last tip:

Consistency is Key


You have to  show up, give value, and take care of your tribe consistently.  If you do this they will reward you in time.
