Hi everyone,

Just like some advice. Which is the best route to take on Facebook. As I am in health & fitness niche. I have just finish writing a eBook on GDM (which is a form of diabetes which affect women in pregnancy) I have build a fan page, which is getting visitors but very slowly.

Just wanted to know is forming a group better them having fan page or do both.

Thanks
Rita.

    Longterm you would want to have both. Usually people are directed to join groups at the end of sales funnel.

    If you have a book, I suggest sales funnel: free chapter: to get email, then ebook, $7, then upsell coaching.

    At end of the sale / at last page you give your buyers command to like your fanpage and join your group. Thus don`t forget everyone asks themselves a question you must have an answer for: what is in the box for me

    Hi Rita!

    I would highly suggest to do BOTH.

    Build up the Likes and Engagement on your Fan Page. And at the same time Build Up the Members Number of your Facebook Group.

    I have actually had a lot of success with Free Facebook Marketing myself.

    I run several FB Groups and I get some good traffic from them when I do a mass promotion.

    But, you should start with just one facebook group for now. Especially since it is going to be a Group for your business only -right?

    Promote your FB Group on the Fan Page and if you also use your personal profile for business, you should promote it there as well.

    If you are going to use your main Facebook profile for business - I highly recommend you to take the time to learn more about facebook marketing and how to build up your Network and Following.

    I have been able to build up a good network and following on Facebook by implementing simple tips. Right now I have over 4,800 friends in my network and 1,708 followers

    In my opinion, it is better to have both.
    But you have also to have your personal page or business profile to promote fan page!

  • Hi,

    Yes you can do both. But between a facebook group and a fanpage, you can go for the latter first. It's true that most funnels usually have groups at the end of their funnel list, especially for membership sites wherein they keep their members in a group to maintain discussion and conversation with other subscribers.

    Goodluck.

    It's more effective of you do both.

    Create a page and also create a group.

    Page is easier to find than a group. But group is more interactive compared to page.

    Getting huge amount of Facebook like does not happen overnight.

    If people find that you have an impressive posts then that's when you'll get a high number of likes.

    Just be patient. You'll get there.

    Both are good and needed.

    There's a chance that only few number of people could see you group but it is more interactive.

    Pages are easier to see and to share.

    Page is way better than creating a group.

    It could easily be viewed by your target audience.

    Page is a lot easier to access.

    When it comes to interaction, facebook group is better.

    You get to discuss with other members of the group unlike page.

    Facebook page is much effective than Facebook group because the likes or the audiences are limitless and it's easier to gather likes than members IMO.
