A year ago, I learned about the awesome power of Facebook groups.
I went to a conference called Pioneer Nation in Portland, Oregon. It had a private Facebook group where conference attendees could connect before and after the conference.
A week or so after the conference, I noticed a post where a guy named Josh was asking for feedback on his website. I responded with a couple of suggestions, and asked if I could interview him for my blog.
We ended up talking for 2 hours. Now, a year later, I still talk to him every single week. We share our business goals and struggles and keep each other motivated. I am not sure if I would still be blogging if it weren’t for his constant support.
Facebook groups can, and often do, lead to real relationships that keep you blogging even when it gets hard, give you great post ideas that people are dying to read, and provide opportunities for you to expand your audience and your reach.
