How To Best Participate in Facebook and LinkedIn Groups

Today’s eTip is about participating in Facebook or LinkedIn groups the best way.

As an entrepreneur, sometimes we have that sense that once a member in a group, it’s an opportunity to showcase our products or services. We’ll get leads and sales out of it and get quite excited about the possibilities of riches to come.

Unfortunately, that’s not the best way to approach the idea of participating in groups.

Avoid participating in Social Media groups with self-serving intentions of getting salesClick To Tweet

What you want to do is participate with the intention of being of service; to offer value.

You want to help others while showcasing your knowledge and expertise. By doing that, instead of pushing yourself on people and annoying them because you’re being salesy within the group, you’re actually providing a lot of value and helping people with their problems and challenges that they are facing.

Through that process, you are showcasing your knowledge and expertise. By helping other people, they start to see how much you know and will be more than happy to either hire you, purchase your products or refer someone to you because they have now established you as an expert in your industry.

So instead of going into a group and thinking you are going to get sales, go with the intention of helping and being of service and just see how you can help out.

With that you will see a lot more success and at the end of the day you will get the return on your efforts. It is a bit longer of a process but it’s well worth it in the long run.

  • Great video Susan! I’m in about 10 groups now and only active in about 3 of them. I agree, too much ‘sales stuff’ is tough to build a relationship. Perhaps we could balance out the sales stuff with some cheery comments about what people are talking about.
