Being in a Facebook group is a little like being at a party. You’re the guest and the host is whoever owns the group. Just like an invitation to a party, it probably has a dress code, (or code of conduct as a guide). Manners are just as important online in a group as they are in a real-life party, and reading the group’s guidelines will give you a great idea of the culture and values of the group. Every group has a vibe and landscape and we want to make sure it’s a good fit.
Connect, don’t sell
What attracts you to the group? Are you just wanting to sell your stuff, because that becomes pretty old pretty fast? If you go into a group with selling on your mind, with your vibe all: “buy my stuff, buy my stuff, buy my stuff,” it’s gonna show and people won’t warm to you. They feel like sales targets instead of people.
Because Facebook groups are about connecting. There about getting to know you as a person. So the best thing you can do is just be you and get to know people as yourself. Because the know, like, and trust factors are gonna just zoom up when you do that.
People need to know who you are. They need to get to understand your passions, the things that you’re really into, and then they trust what you say. Especially if you’re helpful and engaging and just genuinely give. We’ve all seen those sneaky promo posts, you know, where it’s like, oh, I’m having a fantastic day with my clients as I get ready to do whatever my stuff is, and then there’s the image of their fabulous face and the business details, all the website stuff below. That’s a sneaky promo. We all kinda know what’s going on.
Be your real self
But the best way to get on in Facebook groups is to just be yourself. Say what you think. Be helpful and generous and just give. I tell you what, I have probably gotten more out of Facebook groups that I feel like I’ve given, and I like to give a lot, but it is just a beautiful place to be when you find your particular group. And there’s plenty of them out there.
Be a nice party guest
So basically, be a nice guest, clean up after yourself, especially after a free reading. Go back in and close that post, look at the guidelines and just play by the rules and make sure everyone has a good time, including the group owner.
