Are FaceBook Groups Any Good For Traffic Generation?

12 replies
Hey Guys,

I'm testing facebook groups as a means of free traffic and seeing some pretty good results.

My method involves creating an image using the free image editor canva. On the bottem of the image I put a big call to action, "Comment INFO Below"

Then I write a couple of lines of copy text (usually asking a question around a pain point the group is having.)

Then I run through about 20-30 groups posting the same ad.

This usually gets me an initial burst of anywhere between 40-50 comments spread over the 20-30 groups.

I then go to the notifications hit "like" and reply with "PM sent!" and then I PM them my link.

From my tracking I am seeing about 15 clicks on my link. The first product I tested MMO niche generated 35 sign ups and 2 sales over a 3 day period.

Has anyone else been using fb groups for traffic generation and would like to "brainstorm" to improve your results?

    Yes levan Facebook groups are good for traffic and for leads as well. I've generate lots of leads through Facebook groups. But remember always spread knowledgeable content and share post you post in limited groups which are best according to your niche. Excessive group sharing is not good facebook can block your account.

    I also utilize FB groups for traffic gen but my method is a bit different from yours. I'm an admin for one Shopify/eCommerce group and I'm a member of quite a few more.

    In my own group, I'll poll my audience and create blog posts about what topics are the most popular. Then I'll share my blog posts with the group. This is the start of my funnel. From my blog post, they can choose to opt in to my email list for some free email challenges and other resources I offer.

    If not, that's fine too. I enjoy sharing what I know and it makes me feel good to know that people are benefiting in some way.

    What goes around comes around, right?

    In the groups I don't admin, I just try to be useful to the admins and members by contributing valuable info when I can. I make it a point to try to be extra detailed and helpful beyond a one-sentence answer. In the case that I've written a blog post regarding the topic, I'll contribute the most relevant excerpt of my post and tag the admin, letting him/her know I've written an article that may be helpful and with their permission, I'll share.

    So that's really about all there is to it. Nothing too crazy or secret about it. And I always try to stay on the good side of the admins. No one likes a spammer and a little courtesy can go a long way.

    There are many groups on FB that have active members. Publishing your ads is a good thing, but how much creativity and efforts are put to bring about that particular ad is what pays at the end. One can try out different images, video interaction sessions. GIF's are particularly attracting users attention. These are small animations that lasts for a few seconds only. Nothing long. Short and creative at the same time.

    The better you explain your product, the better traffic flows. Also, the kind of groups you choose for your postings is the foremost crucial thing.

    Facebook groups are 100% good for traffic, if not they will not be so many of them.

    The keys to grow them is to provide value and keep the audience engage.

    Ask questions and understand what they are going through. Produce content from here. Give them what they want to hear.
