Does your Facebook Group have an Engagement or a Foundational Problem

Does Your Facebook Group Have An Engagement or Foundational Problem? - My Five Day Challenge Will Help You Find Out

Anyone can face problems when it comes to Facebook group engagement. You’ll be hard pushed to come across an entrepreneur who hasn’t, at one point or another, had a problem with Facebook group engagement.

So don’t be discouraged if you’re facing this issue, we’ve all been there. A Facebook group is a community, and a community needs to engage with one another to be successful.

Keep reading to discover how my five day challenge could help you improve your Facebook groups engagement beyond your wildest dreams!

Facebook Group vs Facebook Messenger

Let’s start with the basics. When considering creating a Facebook group, it’s important that first of all, you consider your target audience.

This is a vital step in creating a Facebook group with high engagement for so many reasons, but right now I want to focus on one aspect of your target audience.

Head count.

I was recently asked a question regarding the number of members in an existing Facebook group and the engagement level of the group. I want to share the question, and my answer, with you.

It illustrates perfectly why you need to consider how many people will be in your Facebook group before you create one.

Q: Hi Anna. HELP! I think I have an engagement problem! I have a private Facebook group for one of my classes. There are six students and only one engages with the group on a regular basis. Is this a challenge that faces a lot of people with groups like mine?

A: With a “class size” of ten or less, creating a group might be more trouble than it’s worth, regardless of the topic of the Facebook group. In my opinion, an intimate Facebook Messenger thread with six people would prove super valuable! More so than a Facebook group in this instance. There is a time and a place for a Facebook group, and I don’t think this is it.

In this example, you would get so much more engagement from your students in a Facebook messenger thread than a Facebook group.

This is exactly why you need to consider who your Facebook group is intended for, before you create one.

Using a Facebook group in this way could be the reason that engagement within the group is low.

Your Facebook Group Is NOT A Waste Of Time, Just Because Engagement Is Low

I have come across so many people who become disheartened when their Facebook group engagement started decreasing or just wasn’t picking up as they’d hoped it would.

It’s only human nature to feel disheartened when things don’t go according to plan.

We all have such high hopes, and when we fail to reach our own expectations, it’s truly heartbreaking.

Everyone that I’ve come across who feels that their Facebook group is a waste of time has gone though the same thought process, and it does a little something like this:

  1. Facebook group engagement decreases or fails to pick up over time

  2. You turn to thinking negative thoughts such as “Why am I wasting my time on this group?”,  “No one is talking to or engaging with me” and “I’ve invested so much time (maybe even money) and I’m getting no return”

  3. Negative thought escalating into thinking that the Facebook group is a waste of time and ultimately, you’ll give up on the group

It can be hard to overcome these negative thoughts, especially if you’ve got higher expectations of your Facebook groups engagement levels. Instead of thinking negatively, think proactively!

Ask yourself WHY people aren’t engaging as much as you would like them to.

Are you posting topically relevant material to your Facebook group?

Are you posting enough content?

Too much or too little content can have a detrimental effect on Facebook group engagement.

Are you posting at the right times of day?

If you’ve asked yourself all of these questions and implemented actions to rectify any Facebook group mistakes you might be making and engagement in the group is still low, then you need to ask yourself the all important question…

Is there a foundational problem within the group?

What Kind Of Person Is My Five Day Challenge Targeted At?

I designed my five day challenge to help entrepreneurs who think that they have an engagement problem but really have a foundational problem with their Facebook group.

By getting them to “start over” with their Facebook group, I guide them through setting the right foundations that will make their group golden! Think of a Facebook group like a house.

If you forget to set sturdy foundations for your house, pretty soon it would fall down.

This is the same with so many Facebook groups! People cut corners at the start, in order to get their Facebook group set up in the shortest time frame possible.

This doesn’t do them any favors in the long run because without the all important foundational work that needs to be put into a Facebook group, the engagement of the group will never reach its full potential.  

Although my main target audience is entrepreneurs who already have Facebook groups, my five day challenge is of great value to those who have not yet created a Facebook group.

I have targeted those with existing Facebook groups because I  polled until I was blue in the face to determine that these are the types of people who most needed my help.

If you’re just starting to think about creating a Facebook group, my five day challenge will absolutely help you too! Whether you’ve been playing the Facebook group game for years, or are just dipping your toe in to test the waters, knowing how to set the right foundations for your Facebook group will help you achieve your full engagement potential.
