So, you started a Facebook Group and now all you hear is silence! Well, that has happened to the best of us and that is why I’m so excited to share 9 tips of ways you can revive a Facebook Group.
This post is a great collaboration with my friend and Social Media Expert, Keri Jaehnig, owner of Idea Media Girl along with changes that I’m putting in place to change and revive my Desire Create Facebook group.
Keri notes that she had to be innovative when the dynamic of her group, Likeable League, changed with the introduction of new members into an established group.
We had to find a way to bridge the new and the seasoned and help them become familiar with each other for really productive conversation. – Keri Jaehnig
Oh yes, and those pesky spammers! Keri noted that as a Facebook Group owner you have to keep on top of spammers to make sure they don’t take away from the enthusiasm of the group.
Keri Suggest Using These 4 Tips:
- Monthly hangouts to connect & discuss a topic of the month
- Changing imagery to refresh the online setting
- Posting questions/polls that let people talk about themselves & what they think
- Theme days
- Make a new member welcome kit and pin it to the top of the group page
Keri’s Facebook Group is for small business owners, entrepreneurs, solopreneurs (and the like) that are not online marketing pros. People that want to network & collaborate and work toward likeable social media. If this sounds like something you would love join Likeable League Facebook Group.
Here are a few of my tips:
- Take stock and decide if the group is worth reviving.
- Add a new Timeline cover photo and sharpen the purpose of group.
- Start posting really great content on a daily basis (5 days a week).
- Change the Group status
- Send a message to the existing members to let them know what is happening via the message button.
- Run an ad and promote your group.
If none of these tips work, don’t be afraid to let the group know that you will be closing the group. To close a group you have to remove all of your members before you can delete the group. Don’t worry, you next bright idea for a Facebook Group is probably already in your head!
