First thing first, I want to be honest. I am a member of a lot of FB groups but I really can't keep up with connecting and engaging with all the groups I joined.
This week I reviewed all the FB groups I joined and choose to leave some to focus on at least 10 groups that will help me with my blog traffic. The result? I actually gained 16 followers on Pinterest and 22 on my FB page just the first day! My Pinterest is busy notifying me of new followers and repins. This might not be a lot for a newbie blogger like me but this is really a good start.
Here are the exact steps I did that to keep up with FB Groups:
1. Go to the App Store and download FB Groups. Some advantage of using the app includes seeing your FB group in one place, you can discuss, plan and collaborate easily without distractions and keep up with the groups you manage.
2. Once downloaded, just sign up using your FB account. You can explore the app to see some of its features.
What I love to see is the RECENT TAB. It separates recent posts from your favorite FB groups from other groups. That way, you'll get to focus on chosen groups only.
Here's how you can add a group to your Favorites: Click PIN TO SHORTCUTS.
3. Decide who are these groups that would really help you. Pin them to Shortcuts so you'll easily read any updates from the group and engage with them.
4. In the Groups Tab, you can see all the groups you joined with all your favorite groups on top.
Let's create a shortcut in your Home Screen so you can surely focus on any boards you choose. Long press to any of your chosen boards to see this pop-up:
Click "Add to Home Screen". Then, just follow the instructions based on these screenshots.
Do this on all the groups you want to engage and stay active. Here's a screenshot of my favorite FB groups in my own mobile:
That's it! Hope this helps!
Currently, I am still working out to create an excel template for FB Groups Promo Schedule and import it into my Google Calendar. That way I'll get reminded of promo days of each FB Groups to help promote my blog. I'll be sharing it next week! Watch out!
