5 Benefits of Running Facebook Groups: Blog-vember 2018
5 Benefits of Running Facebook Groups:
As you may know, we started two new Facebook groups back in September 2018.
The first one is a group for folks who, like us, enjoy quite a variety of musical genres, but rarely find others who feel the same. In that group, we share favorite songs, video clips, memories, and newly-discovered artists. It’s quite a fun bunch of folks and it’s called “Funky Happy People (Who Listen to a Variety of Musical Genres). (https://www.facebook.com/groups/funkyhappypeople/ )
The second group is for those of us who want an upgrade on finding success in the music business. We stress the “make your own luck” ethos, so that you’re not sitting around waiting for success to find you. That group is called “Be the Next D.I.Y. Rock Star” (link). In it, we share “Tips, Tricks, Mindset for Music Business Success.” (https://www.facebook.com/groups/DIYrockstar/ )
Now, that it has been almost two months, I feel like I can share the surprising things I’ve learned about managing Facebook groups.
Upon the advice of my new “best friend”—not really!—Caitlin Bacher (https://caitlinbacher.com/ ), I felt emboldened enough to gather whatever tribe we could find to share about interests that we have. Her advice was that, as content creators who want to know what “our people”—in my case, my Avatar—really wants, we should stop guessing and go right out and ask folks. Though it took me a while to follow through on this advice, eventually I decided that, as part of this risk more get more rewards model, I would strike out there.
