Creating Communities with Facebook Groups

An Introduction to:

Easy to use and accessible, Facebook is a great way to bring people together around a subject or cause, but how do you go about creating a dynamic, vibrant Facebook community?

In this essential e-course, we’re diving into the nuts and bolts of Facebook Groups including how to create them, the best tips and tools for managing them and the potential for monetising your group.

The course features all the latest insight into Facebook Groups while drawing on my experience running Business Business Business, a Facebook group with over 30,000 members.

An integral part of this course will be a dedicated members-only Facebook group where course participants can work together, discuss ideas and enjoy ongoing support as they create their own Facebook community.

In this course, I share my how to’s and top tips for creating a Facebook Community from my experience as a group admin and the founder of Business Business Business. And I answer all those questions I am most often asked about making a Facebook Group work.
