30 Helpful Facebook Groups That’ll Make Your Blog Grow

Sharing is caring!

Do you know that there (some) Helpful Facebook Groups that will really make your blog grow?

Have you joined any of the Facebook Groups for your blog?

Not joining Facebook Groups in my early blogging stage is one of my regrets, well… sort of. I’ll tell you a short story later on this post. There are tons of Facebook Groups for Bloggers that you can join. Most of them can really be helpful however some are not. 

I’ve been a member of few of those “spammy” FB Groups that’s why I know that not all them are helpful. And that’s what inspired me to create this post to help YOU and new bloggers to find the right and helpful Facebook Groups to join.

You ready? Let’s begin.

First, Do you really need to join Facebook Groups?

Well, joining a Facebook Group is not a necessity for your blog. However, if you join the right group, you’ll see that it’s more likely to be beneficial for you than it is to them, particularly the creator / owner of the group. 

Blogging is fun. Personally, I didn’t know that I’m going to like blogging because I’m not a good writer plus the fact that I’m not an English speaker, so, yeah try to imagine my hardships everytime I create a single blog post!

Although blogging is fun, it’s also a struggle and challenging at the same time!  

If you’re a newbie blogger, you’ll have a lot of questions and ideas in your blogging journey. Wouldn’t be nice, if you have someone or group of people whom you ask questions or share ideas with directly instead of sifting thousands of blog posts?

That’s in my post, about Newbie Blogging Struggles I suggested in joining Facebook Groups.

Things you’ll learn in this post :

  • Benefits of joining Facebook Groups
  • How to look for the decent and legitimate Facebook Groups
  • How to properly join Facebook Groups
  • Things you need to remember when joining
  • My favorite and considered really helpful Facebook Groups
  • My recommended Group

Benefits of joining Facebook Groups

Joining Facebook Groups can really help you grow as a blogger. You will learn things about blogging from other peoples’ experience. And for other reasons such as follows :

  • It can help you with organic reach
  • Facebook Groups can increase your followers 
  • You may find your ideal target audience in the group
  • As a member, you can indirectly promote your blog or your services
  • Facebook Group is a good place to get idea what to write for your next blog post
  • It is a learning and engagement tool
  • You may find your email subscriber (My first email sub came from a group)
  • Facebook Group can help your blog’s growth through collaboration and guest posts

These are the reasons and what I experienced upon joining Facebook Groups that’s why I truly recommend that you join as well. 

I’m planning to start my own Facebook Group within this year to extend my reach and help other bloggers as well. I’d like to return the favor or the help I got from the group.

How to look for the rightful Facebook Groups for your blog?

Moreover, How do you find facebook groups to join?

Like I said, I made a few bad choices of Facebook Groups in the past because I didn’r look at it thoroughly. Those groups just happened to appear on my feed, some I did search though. But then, afterwards, I discovered a group through Pinterest then I compared it to previous ones that I have and lerned my lesson.

Of spotting a good Facebook Groups.

Check the following to Spot a Good Facebook Groups

1. Privacy

I would prefer if the group is private. It brings curiosity and I consider it a hint that this group is well supervised. And most of the decent Facebook Groups I’ve encountered are all private. Like these groups for example that I’m both a member.

2. Activity

Before I explain why you need to look for the group’s activity, let me show you 2 separate screenshots marked as A and B and ask you a question later on.

Looking at the image, which group you are more likely to join base on activity? Group A?

For me, I’d choose Group B. Here’s why, although Group B has smaller number of posts that day which is 13 posts compared to Group A with 284 posts that day, I see it that the latter group is less monitored and posts are less screened.

When you take a closer look Group B is actually way bigger than Group A. Group B has almost 58K members but it only produces 13 posts during the time I screenshot it. This is suggesting that Group B doesn’t contain random posts from it’s members therefore it’s less chaotic.

So, when it comes to group activity, you should try to look for a lesser number of posts. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that the group is not active but it is actually organized and well monitored.

3. About

The next thing that you need to check out is the About section of the group. Once you expand the description, a good facebook group estates the following :

  • Creator’s website
  • Group’s Rules
  • Creator’s Freebie Offers to it’s members
  • Posting Schedule
  • Creator’s Social Link (sometimes)

Keep in mind that it may vary and not all of those are present on the About section of a particular FB Group. But more or less those are the things that you will see on a legitimate groups’ About section.

How to properly join Facebook Groups?

Joining Facebook Groups is not that hard. Once you click the “Join Group” button, you’ll be forwarded to their questionaire that you should answer.

The questions that you’ll bee prompted to answer differs from each group. But, most the time these are the questions you’ll see :

  • How did you hear about the group?
  • Why did you want to join the group?
  • Do you agree with the group rules?
  • Do you agree with designted promo schedule?
  • Do you have a blog? What’s your website / url?
  • Would like to receive tips / freebies? If yes, please include your email address

All you have to is to asnwer those questions, and wait for their approval.

In case you weren’t approved, don’t worry. Maybe, your niche is different from the group. You can try to join other groups.

Things you need to remember when joining

Well, this is no brainer, of course you need to abide with rules once you’re able to get in. Be friendly, polite and engage with the discussion. 

Once you’re member, you can start asking questions but you should not be afraid to answer other question as well. You should help so you can get help.

Although joining groups can help you and your blog, keep in mind that joining too many won’t help. Limit yourself to 5 groups or less to make sure you can manage it, engagement wise.
