Sometimes it feels like Facebook gets a bad wrap. Of course, sometimes it feels like Facebook gets exactly what it deserves…so where should we, as small business owners, fall on how to use Facebook? Today’s guests should help. Jono Petrohilos is a personal trainer and online educator who has a $1 Million online course business. He also runs huge Facebook groups, including one specifically for online course creators. Jono is SUPER passionate about FB groups -so much so that he made me excited about them. He offers a ton of tips for how to start and grow a FB group, and how one can build your business. In Build Something More, we talk about the Facebook outage and how it affected him (and how he has a backup plan!)
- Spend time in similar Facebook groups and communities, participating and adding value. This will help build a network of 100 people you can invite to your group.
- The goal of the FB group is the community. It’s not about “me” it’s about “them.” In that vein, encourage participation at every opportunity. Introductions, questions emailed to you, and anything else you think the group would benefit from
- The name is SUPER important. It should be clear and searchable.
