What about posting on Facebook groups and how to post on Facebook groups? Those are the main topics in this post. I know, for some of you it might sound really silly this post especially if you use Facebook on a daily basis.
I log in and stay on Fb on a daily basis for at least 4 years now and it is pretty simple for me to use it. However, while starting a website I had to create social media accounts for my websites. I mainly use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest.
So I never used Twitter, Inst., G+ and pinterest before and when I stumbled into them it was a total nightmare for me. I even spent around 1 hours and a half to go and chek my pins on Pinterest and don’t even get me started on G+.
Therefore, for some of you might be pretty hard to operate on Facebook and since I know it so well, I would like to help you out. So, in this simple step by step tutorial, I am going to share a post from my website to my Facebook page and then to some Facebook groups. I will try to explain it as simple as possible so please let me know if you have any questions left.
So first we have to create a post for our website. Check this post here in order to see some of my tips on how to create “Quality Content”. Once we published it, we have to add a “plugin” to our website that will add share buttons to different social media networks.
I personally use Social Pug. It is a free plugin that is easy to use. Check here my step to step tutorial with images on how to install and activate it.
Once you installed your WordPress share plugin, it is time to hit share on our posts on Facebook account. It is not essential to have a Facebook page for your business and you can share it on your personal profile. However, I don’t want for my friends to be able to spy on all of my activity and the only solution, if you think like me, is to create your own personal Facebook page. Check here how to set up a Facebook business page.
So first we have to go to a post or a page on our website and click on the share button
Go on any page you like and click on the Facebook button. A pop-up will appear and there you have to click the “Share on your timeline” button and select the “Share on a page you manage” button. Now, write any message you want and click on the Post to Facebook blue button.
Go on Facebook, on your page and click share. You will have two options to chose from: Share and Share to a page. You have to select the simple share option.
From here, click on Share on a Page you manage button, on up left corner and select Share in a group. Write on the Group field the name of the group you want to share on and then click post.
It will post from your personal account but do not worry because only the group members will be able to see your activity.
Note: In order to post in a Group, you have to join it first!
Don’t worry, you can join in a Facebook group very easy. Here’s how:
Go to the search bar on Facebook and write any niche you want. In my example I will write an easy one such as: How to lose weight
Click on the Groups section on the top menu and click on the “Join” button. There is no limit in how many groups you can join or at least I don’t believe that it is. However, you will have to wait in order for the group admins to approve your request. There isn’t an exact amount of time that you have to wait and it only depends on how active those admins are.
You’re done! Now you can go to that group and you will be able to see your post.
You can also watch how many people did your post reached by clicking on your Facebook page. Here, you will have to click on Insights on the top menu and scroll down.
That’s it folks, you’re done! 🙂
I personally believe that posting on Fb groups it is a waste of time, at least in the beginning, and I created a post here where I explain my reasons. I also share my first experience of promoting in Fb groups and I even give a few tips about how to be more efficient. You can check out the post here.
