No matter how good your blogging is and how much traffic you’re getting every day, if you have a blog, you need to join Facebook Groups. Why? That’s exactly what you’re going to find out today! + a list of 15 Facebook Groups to join!
Everyone knows that blogging is kind of a lonely thing, BUT if you want to find “your people”, your tribe, your friends, you need to get social. And the best place to start? Facebook, of course. And most importantly, Facebook Groups.
The most important thing you need to know about joining Facebook Groups is that you must focus on quality, not quantity.
Please, don’t just join 10 000 groups just to be in them and drop links once in a while. Don’t be that blogger. No one likes that blogger.
After all, it’s social media, right? You need to get social. Talk to people, don’t just share links here and there. Find your friends, and let them discover you!
From personal experience, we can say that it’s very important to find just a few groups to join, where you might also find your audience.
If you’re like us, young millennials, not married yet, without kids and have as focus target someone like us, we’re here to tell you that good groups in this category are hard to find! (also, you’re in luck today, more on that later!)
But enough chit-chatting! Let’s get to it!
5 Reasons you need to join Facebook Groups if you have a blog
1. To socialize
Because blogging is something you do on your own, and you feel lonely sometimes, it’s important to know that you’re not the only one going through it. These Facebook Groups are made for bringing like-minded people together.
They are the places to share experience, gain experience, fix (possible) mistakes, prevent others and talk to bloggers just like you.
Personal Tip. Introverts, breathe! It’s easier to write to someone than talking to them in person.
2. To grow your social media
Facebook Groups are a goldmine for when it comes to growing your social media following, and it’s not just Facebook pages we’re talking here. Many groups have special threads just for this purpose.
But again, don’t just be a link dropper. Commit to looking into others and helping others grow as well.
3. To grow your blog
For new beginners, this is the most important part. Because when you’re just starting out you have a thirst for growing your blog fast, you tend to throw yourself into everything that can give you a chance to promote yourself.
Personal Tip: Calm down! Breathe! Don’t get overly excited and stressed!
Again, don’t be the blogger that only drops links here and there, or the same link everywhere, without saying anything. Reciprocate!
You want to take your time and browse through links, read other articles, like and comment on other people’s work.
4. To find collaborators
Facebook Groups are also a goldmine for finding collaborators, for basically everything. From people to join your Pinterest Group Boards, to Tailwind Tribes, to other Facebook Groups.
In Facebook Groups you may find the person you need to interview, or feature in your next podcast, someone to complete a survey you’ve created, or grow mailing lists.
5. To find your accountability partner
Every blogger knows that when you’ve decided to do this for real, you must stay consistent. To avoid procrastination and make sure you are reaching those weekly goals you set for yourself ( if you’re not doing it, start doing it now!), you need an accountability partner.
We are two, so we already have each other for that. If you don’t have someone in your life that understands you, and how important this is for you, Facebook Groups are here to save your day!
Finding an accountability partner is a task made easy by Facebook Groups. You can simply ask for what you need, and you’ll find it.
