Facebook groups are a powerful channel to help us gain visibility for our sites.
If you want to reach your target audience one of the best ways to do it is by building communities or groups on one of the major social networks Facebook, Pintrest, Google Plus or Linkedin .
There are thousands of groups and communities created every day and it’s not easy to find those that really work and that can bring benefits. Often we adhere to groups only by the number of members without knowing if it really is a group with participation or offers value.
So I decided to create a list of the best groups on Facebook for Online Marketing and Social Media that in my experience have great engagement and can help you get more visitors to your site. I will also be providing you with a spreadsheet of 50 groups that allow you to promote your posts so you can increase visitors to your site.
Best Facebook groups for strategies Digital Marketing and Social Media
What are Facebook groups?
I guess you know what they are, but just in case you don’t.
As described by Facebook, groups are the place for small group communication and for people to share their common interests and express their opinion. Groups allow people to come together around a common cause, issue or activity to organize, express objectives, discuss issues, post photos and share related content.
As I said earlier, there are many groups on Facebook and almost all topics you can imagine (marketing, architecture, sport, humor, movies, etc).
Why create a group?
Often we think we do not need to create a Facebook group, because there are already so many Facebook Groups that are of value for what we need.
Here are some of the benefits of having your own group:
- As a administrator you decide who can join your group or what can be shared;
- Brand visibility – everyone who joins your group will know who you are;
- Build strong networking relationships with other users of the groups;
- You create a quality community around your brand;
- Ability to share your content instantly, without waiting for anyone’s approval, etc.
Settings for group privacy
Facebook groups have the following privacy settings:
Public group: any user on Facebook can see the group, its posts and group members. You can join directly without having to wait for administrator approval. Public groups tend to have more members because of how easy it is to join.
Closed group: anyone can look up the group and see who belongs to them, but only members can see the group’s posts. To join you have to wait for the approval of the groups administrator.
Secret group: Only group members can see the group and its posts. Does not appear in search results. You need to reach out to a member of the group for a invite join.
Why you should include Facebook Groups in your Social Media strategy?
There are a number of reasons why you should include Facebook groups in your social media strategy , here is a list of a few of them:
- It is a excellent way to reach your target audience for free
- A very good way to interact with potential customers or followers
- A very good tool to promote your content, products or services
- Excellent place to show your knowledge and experience in your niche
- Highly recommended a platform to gain brand visibility
- A very good channel to get extra web traffic to your website
How to find Facebook groups?
1- Search for group on Facebook Search Bar
To find groups that you are interested in you just have to go to the Facebook search bar and put the keyword or industry you are searching for.
2- Select Groups from Facebook Sidebar
In case no groups show up on the search bar, you click on “find more results for …”
And then “groups”. and you will find groups related to your search. You can sort groups by:
- Group type (open or closed)
- Your friends who are in these groups
- If you are a member or not.
3- Inspect Group
If you find one that interests you look at its subject, type of group, description, members and decide whether you want to join or not.
4- Join the Facebook Group
If you want to join a Facebook group, all you have to do is click on “join” and depending on the type of group you will either be accepted right away or have to wait for a admin to accept you.
Is it advisable to join and post in several Facebook groups?
It depends, I recommend posting in groups that are in your niche and will allow you to interact with your target audience.
If you post in 300 groups and they have nothing to do with your niche, your post will not bring any value to you or your audience. .

Tips for naming your Facebook Group
Although some people may not think so, but the name of your group is very important. If you are creating a Facebook group, your main goal would be to get visibility and have your target audience join. If this is what you want you must do the following things:
- Use the keywords in the group name. Eg: Community Manager, Social Media, blogger, blog, etc;
- Don’t use a very long group name 2-5 words is good
- Use your keywords in the beginning of group name
- Make the name catchy and easy to remember
8 Tips to succeed in Facebook groups
1. Always read the rules of each group
It is very important to read the rules. You don’t want to break any of the rules and get banned for posting something your not suppose to.
2. Introduce yourself to the group
Most people join groups and just start posting links to their site. If you want to stand out and have your brand stand out, your first post should be a introduction to the group explaining who your are and what you do.
3. Post in moderation
Another problem of Facebook groups is that many people enter, post and leaves. Some even return to repeat the same post in the same group a few hours or days later.
Please do not be spam, This can really hurt your credibility and your Brand.
4. Share quality content
If you share quality content you will build your authority for you and your brand.
If other users view your posts and find them interesting, you will see how the engagement with your content grows quickly.
5. Review notifications
It is very important that you check your notifications several times a day so that you know when you are mentioned and when people are interacting with your posts.
6. Always Answer comments
Always answer comments and comment on others posts. This will help you gain visibility in the group and build up your authority.
7. Participate in questions and debates
Another interesting way to build your brand and authority in a group is to actively participate in debates and answer others questions. If you can provide useful answers to others, they will quickly look for you when they have problems and they will look at you as a expert in that niche.
8.Know and interact with the admins
Another tip that can be very useful, is getting to know the managers of the group. You can offer support for any of the tasks in the group or you can highlight an activity that has occurred in the group you should also congratulate them on their success when they hit certain milestones.
