Launching a successful Facebook group is a definite art.If you are thinking of starting a new group or already have an existing group, here are a few essential pointers to get you going viral and effortlessly attract new members.5) Create A Whisper Campaign Tell your friends about the group in an indirect way long before you are going to launch, hint about it in blog posts, in teleseminars and in wall posts and in all your communications with your potential core members.
Identify those special members by signing them up to your optin list or joining your Fan page.
Focus on adding value and encourage your group members to share their own talents.
A Facebook group needs strong leadership and clear direction if you want it to succeed.
If you act like a sheep, the herd might follow you for a moment and then lose interest or move in a different direction.
4) Target Your Initial Members Having powerful and influential friends as core members of the group is vital.
Hand select the people who you want to be there and send them personal invitations. You need to choose people who are dynamic on Facebook or Twitter, people who are famous, people who have huge followings, people who have large networks and people who are already experts and leaders within your niche.
If your initial network hasn’t reach 500 people you will have a hard time getting enough momentum for your group to take off.
In that case find another friend and launch together. Its much more fun launching a group with several people than having to do all the work on your own.
1) Choose a Killer Title For Your Group Name Without a memorable name that is both colorful and sticky your group will fail right from the beginning.
