Looking for ways to quickly grow your Facebook group?
In this article, you’ll discover three ways to grow your Facebook group.
#1: Questions That Prompt Engagement in Your Facebook Group.
It’s no secret that Facebook rewards engagement. They love it so much that they’ll start recommending your group to other people on the platform, allowing you to essentially grow your group for free.
The best way to get people to engage consistently in your Facebook group is to constantly ask them questions.
There are four kinds of questions that work well for this purpose. You can ask group members to weigh in on your upcoming business or personal decisions; solicit their opinions on something; prompt them to answer your question; or allow them to share something about their business such as their profile, podcast name, or YouTube channel.
#2: Keep Engaged Facebook Group Posts Trending.
Every time somebody comments on or reacts to a Facebook post, whether it’s in your group or the feed, Facebook pushes it back up to the top. So in the case of an engaging group post, everyone will see that post first.
But you don’t just want engaging posts, you also want trending posts. The best way to do that is to constantly engage with posts in your group. While you may be tempted to like and comment on everyone’s posts all at once, don’t do that. Otherwise, you’ll be giving up a lot of opportunities to make sure those posts trend.
Here’s a better approach. Whenever you identify a Facebook group post that’s getting good engagement and you want to supercharge that engagement, like and comment on one or two people. Then wait 30 minutes and come back and repeat the process.
The more you spread out your engagement on that one post, the more times it will get pushed to the top of the feed. And of course, the more comments the post has, the more engagement it has, and the more Facebook will reward you for that popularity.
#3: Tag Engaged Facebook Group Members and Mention Old Posts
We all know Facebook never wants people to leave the platform. They discourage you from adding outside links or referencing things outside of your group or page. An easy way to get around that—and get Facebook to fall in love with your group—is to mention members.
It’s really easy. Just go into your Facebook Group Insights and look at your top-performing posts and most engaged group members.
Make note of these names and pick one or two each week and mention them in your group. This will help get them to engage even more.
