Facebook is powerhouse of innovation. It keeps its users on toes; it adds new features, even before the users get habituated to last released. Have you tried the Facebook Groups app? you should certainly. Facebook Group is the best way to develop a network that can benefit you in several ways. Stay connected, engage and build a lasting relationship using Facebook groups.
The special part of being in a group or owning one is that people with common interest come together to share updates, discuss, comment, share links and photos etc.
How can you build your network using Facebook groups? 5 Ways of Building Your Network Using Facebook Groups explained.
Foster Relationship Building
Build relationships with fellow group members. Find out what is common between you and them. This will spark discussions, debates which will lead to increased conversation building relationship with fellow group members. If you are member of a particular group and never engage in any conversation or like, comment etc. then no one, literally no one will even notice your presence and you will end up being (virtually) alone and ignored despite being in a group. It is important to foster your relations with other group members.
Share Stuff That ‘Wows’ Group Members
Lot of people love groups because, they learn through posts, comments and shares. Joining a relevant group gives an access to plethora of knowledge and insights from people who know the subject in and out.
Share stuff that can initiate a response from the group members. Share links, tips, tricks, engage in discussion, ask and answer questions.
Guide and Support Fellow Group Members
You can use Facebook groups to guide and support to your fellow members. Customer service is the backbone of any business, most impressive thing here is that you are not the owner of that particular product; it is the knowledge that puts you in a position to comment as an expert. Well, when you answer to a member’s questions you will educate many. It is a platform to discuss, start a conversation and know people’s view, needs, and expectations.
Keep Out the Spammers
Keep spammers away from your group. Delete and get rid of spam posts at the earliest. Be firm and ban people who shun rules. Your group has your rules and it is not a place for mischief or irrelevant stuff. A lot of groups start on a high note and disappear due to spamming. So keep them away, as the existence of your group might depend on the way you control these spams.
When you guide, help people get information they need and answers to their queries; your credibility increases. People might want to get in touch with you directly with their difficulties and projects. This can be another lead generation tool for you.
Participating in a Facebook group can help you in networking; I am sure you will start participating in groups and even create your own while keeping above pointers in mind.
