Alright, so you want to start a Facebook group, keep the faith, it will work. You are making one of the BEST decisions you possibly can for your biz.
But yes, there is a little hesitation by many people nowadays and yes that one question, will it really work? It is common, do not worry! So let’s make you feel a little better, do not worry, read ahead!
1: “I need to be well-known before I start my group.”
This kind of thinking is completely BACKWARDS. Hosting a Facebook group actually builds your popularity, not the other way around. I know that might sound crazy but it’s 100% true.
No matter what size of your audience is with you. Make sure you add a lot of value to your group. People should have a reason to visit your group every time! Do not allow spammers on your group.

2: “There are already too many groups.”
If we all had to come up with totally original, unique ideas to be successful, nobody would be successful.
The internet is a HUGE page. People tend to be very particular about who they follow. The fit needs to be perfect! Have you ever joined a Facebook group and struggled to connect with other members or the host?
Once, I wandered into a Facebook group for entrepreneurs and the host was talking about makeup and weight loss. So if this appeals you, this shouldn’t be your taste. Honestly!
The truth is, your group won’t appeal to everyone. It won’t appeal to party poopers or anyone who doesn’t see the value in what you create.
3. “I have to know everything about everything or people will think I’m a fraud”
Don’t worry if you don’t know much, it’s better to learn and do better every time!
The way it is seen, nobody wants to belong to a group run by a know-it-all person.
People join groups for connection and community, not to be told what to do or have answers barked at them. Sometimes it’s best to take a step back and let someone else in your group answer a question. Or even better, tag someone who might know the answer. You’ll be helping two people instead of one!
This will help encourage conversation and participation. Because why would anyone answer if they know the host is gonna jump right in and answer everything. Once you start your group you’ll see just how much you were totally taking your knowledge for granted.
