1. Find People who are like you
Through groups, you find people, you can call your friends, your network, or just members of your niche/sisters or brothers. They become your people because they are. They share your every struggles, my wins as you post them to the group notice. These group members are a few steps of ahead of you and provide valuable insight or a few steps behind you and you can pay it forward. Finding your people makes solving the problems of online business much easier Because you have many more brains coming together to help, guide and cheer all on.
Plus, the more you engage and provide value to a group the more you’re getting a secondary benefit of finding new followers, subscribers, and clients. After all, this is your group and your ideal client is going to be in there.
“Two Heads Are Always Better Than One“.
I mentioned in #1 that groups give you access to lots of people. That’s pretty much a hot feature of a Facebook group: your people will brainstorm you into success much better than your spouse/parent/friend who doesn’t share your career passion that you do, even if they are your biggest cheerleader. Through our groups and what the group is about, we are challenged mentally, intellectually to contribute to our group post and bring to fore front who we are and what we do.
3. Learn and Grow
Your people are going to teach you things — if you’re joining the right groups and are engaging. Facebook Pages simply cannot do this as well as Groups and that’s because they serve different purposes. The threads in Facebook Groups are designed to foster communication and share successes and failures so people can learn from each other.
Plus, you meet people you might not have met otherwise. It allows you to expand your reach; lets you discover your next favorite website/book/etc; and then you might even get awesome people, that become life friends. Distance/religion/colour is no barrier to what you get to learn that you wouldn’t have received had you not met them.
