5 Things You Should Do in a WordPress Facebook Group

In episode 347, we talked about the things you shouldn’t do in a WordPress Facebook group. Now, we are going to talk about the things you should do.

  1. Be helpful 01:11
    • If people have questions and you have the answer, then jump in and contribute!
    • That’s the beauty of Facebook groups. No one is paid to be there.
  2. Be positive and encouraging 01:52
    • Don’t be mean!
    • It’s unfortunate to have to say this, but some people are just not nice.
    • There’s no reason to snap at someone and say “this question has been asked a million times!”
    • Everyone is at a different place in their journey. Be helpful when you can.
  3. Don’t be afraid to participate 03:19
    • A small percentage of Facebook group members actively participate.
    • Most are lurkers who look at the content, but don’t participate.
    • Sometimes it can feel strange to jump into these conversations, but once you get in you’ll start to really benefit from the community aspect.
  4. Don’t be afraid to give away your best secrets/advice 04:27
    • Don’t be afraid to help people. You’re not going to ruin your business by giving away your best marketing secrets.
    • Most people aren’t “doers” or “executors”. Not everyone is going to execute on your advice, so the people who do will really appreciate it.
  5. Assist the admins in reporting spam 05:24
    • Don’t assume that the admins will automatically see spam posts.
    • Help the admins and report these posts when you see them.
