Grow Your Business – Join These 6 Amazing Facebook Groups

Grow Your Business: Join These Six Amazing Facebook Groups
If you run a small business, chances are you spend time on Facebook. After all, having a Facebook page is almost as important as having a website. However, did you know that there is an additional way to grow both your company and who you are as a business owner through Facebook? That way is by joining and actively participating in business-related Facebook groups.

Facebook groups are a powerful and effective way to network (meeting both referral partners and clients) and grow your skill set.

However, not all Facebook groups are the same, so it’s essential that you find the ones that are going to give you the interaction you need.

To help you find the perfect Facebook Groups to join, here is a list of my favorite business Facebook groups.

 

1. Communicate to Connect by He says, She says

About the group

Communicate to Connect by He says, She says is a group designed to help people grow their careers and businesses through the utilization of speaking. Yes, this includes people who want to become professional speakers, but it also consists of those want to improve their communication skills for networking, presenting, teaching, making sales, and more – anyone who wants to connect with others through communication.

The group is led by Carrie Sharpe of He says, She Says, and she strives to make her group interactive and informative. Not only does she provide vast resources and knowledge, but she also encourages everyone to practice what they are learning and to seek opportunities for speaking success.

Why the group is a must join

When you are a part of the group, you will receive tips, techniques, and opportunities to participate in challenges that will bring your communication skills to the next level.

2. Market Like a Boss

About the group

Market Like a Boss is all about teaching business owners how to market their own business and be confident throughout the process.

Michelle Vroom of Vroom Communications leads the group and aims to educate people on all things marketing. After all, marketing is more than just paid promotions, and as a business owner, you genuinely need to have a diverse marketing strategy if you are going to continue to grab the attention of your ideal client.

Why the group is a must join

Unlike other marketing-based Facebook groups, I don’t feel like I am in the group to be sold. It is clear to me that this group is more about education than promotion pushes.

Michelle states right in her group rules that “you’ll get more business from helping people vs. selling.” Her group, being helpful and informative first, proves that point.

3. Mastering Employee Management for Small Businesses

About the group

Mastering Employee Management for Small Businesses is a community for business owners who either have employees or are thinking about adding employees to their company. This group is designed to empower small business owners like you by helping you create, grow and manage the teams you need for business success.

Jamie Van Cuyk of JamieVC runs the group (yes, this is a shameless plug for my own group 😊). I started the group because I know how powerful it can be to have a place to go and ask questions and get advice when it comes to navigating employee management.

Why the group is a must join

Employee management is a complicated subject. Not only does it take a lot of knowledge to hire great employees, it then takes much work to keep them on your staff.

Mastering Employee Management for Small Businesses will not only provide you great tips and discussions about managing employees, but it also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and seek guidance from other business owners who have been in your shoes before.

5. LIT Ladypreneurs

About the group

LIT Ladypreneurs focuses on a crucial topic – Mindset. As hard as it is to admit, we usually are what is preventing the growth or success within our businesses.

Kathryn Binkley of Alyght, the group’s leader, provides prompts, training, and tips to help you work through what is holding you back. She then takes the mindset work on step farther by tying it to your marketing efforts. As I have learned from Kathryn, if you are in the wrong mindset, it will negatively impact your marketing success.

Why the group is a must join

Mindset is a topic that is hard to work through on your own. Often you need some else to ask you the tough questions to even get started. By being a member of LIT Ladypreneurs, your mindset will be challenged like never before – but in the way it needs to be for you to be successful.

Also, Kathryn is down-to-earth and very relatable. Her personality comes out in everything she does, and you feel like you are always communicating with a friend.
