    fanpage if you are running fb ads to it. fb group if you are promoting a post or if you have alot of friends you like to promote to.

    Set-up a page first and then start a group. It doesn't have to be either or. If your page starts getting some traction FB will prompt you to create a related group.

    In my experience, you get better reach in a group.

    I personally do both.

    Why not do both? Set up your fanpage and then share in Facebook Groups.

    A group is better. You get more engagement and you get to know your group members well.

    Facebook pages look like Billboards to me.

    You must always have a FB Business page, and start testing ads out on it, Group is fine, but FB ads on business page, is where the money is, if you sell the right stuff.

    Learn FB marketing, this can help you in the long run, lots to learn if your new,

    You should do both. You want a group to interact with people, help them, share your stuff. But you want a page because they are easier to use paid ads on FB. The idea is you use your fanpage to drive people into your group.

    If the group is large, active, and takes an interest in your niche, the group will do better.

    Usually people do the page first and then do the group to grow the business.

    I would like to go for fan pages. An well worked fanpage will be your future earning way. As well as groups also become popular these days if you can make it work
