Facebook FanPage or Group (I want to promote my YouTube channel)

11 replies
Hi, help me please!
I have a youtube channel about MMO. Yes, it's a highly competitive niche, but I have a big deal of experience, and I have a lot of ideas to share.
I created a YouTube channel, and I'm planning on making a video a day.
What am I planning to do?
I want to promote my brand - my name.
What is better for this purpose - a FanPage, or a group?
I want to post every video on Facebook, and get traffic from Facebook to my YouTube channel.
As I understand, FanPage works better, am I right?

    Facebook Page and Group, both has equal advantages. For a start you can start with group, share videos there. You can create a page on the other side and add videos there as well, work on FB page also for more likes. That will also help you to get traffic

    Hello, Alex. You're actually right when you said that Fanpage works better. Groups are more hassle than fanpages because it requires one person to join the group first before seeing the agenda unlike fanpages, it requires only people to like your page which I think is more convenient for your target audience. God bless!

      Thank you, I've just created a FanPage. And I do think, it's better to use it in my case!

    Fan page is better that group as my idea.The number of reached to post is higher than group in page.you can see thousands of bands using fan pages.If you have 10k liked fan page and 10k members in group when you upload a post the page perform really powerful than group.you can boost your posts and promote your page easily.But group is hard to promote and cannot boost your posts.You can try your self.

    I say do both! Why not the more exposure the better.

    A fan page is better overall because you control all the content.

    In a group you really have to be careful how much you promote or people will leave or unfollow the group.

    Same thing can happen with a fan page, but people expect that you will promote a little on a fan page.

    Overall I say try both and find what works best for your niche. If one isn't working so well go with the one that does & focus your energy on that. Good luck I hope all works out great!

    Sharing your videos on social media is a good way to get yourself noticed.


    However, you should learn to SEO your videos. Remember Youtube is a search engine and is owned by Google. So if you optimise your videos correctly, they will also show up in the organic searches on Google.


    Plenty of videos on Youtube to show how to optimise your video.

    Pages are good for videos but when it comes to make a brand, You name, its always better to have an active Group where you share you knowledge. Recent updats with fb pages, its really hard to get organic reach, where in groups are always good for IM gurus.

    Fanpage is better for that, but you should also do a group if you think you can build a strong community,

    Do both.
    Create a fan page to promote your brand, post updates and share intersting videos.
    Join Fb groups similar to your niche and participate in their discussion.

    Start with a fanpage, create a group later on and make it more exclusive
