Why You Should Grow a Facebook group… and earn commissions daily!
Here’s a simple, Step-by-Step strategy to grow a Facebook group in a competitive niche from zero to 35K members using only
organic traffic… and how to monetize it. Note:I am not using any form of paid advertising. No Facebook ads, no Google ads.
This method will show you how to grow your group
fast & easy using completely organic traffic methods.
(= users typing in search keywords in google and facebook and find your website and group in those search results.)
Before we start, here’s some proof.
Proof 1: Facebook group growth (notice the snowball effect once Facebook starts promoting the group more and more?)
Proof 2: Highly Targeted Traffic to your website from the facebook group Proof 3: Monetize your facebook group and get daily commissions
This is just one monetization method of course. You can also send the traffic to any offer you like, or to your own products, services, Clickbank offers, Ecom store etc. Step 1: Set up your facebook group
You can find plenty of videos on YouTube how to setup a facebook group, this isn’t a tutorial how to set it up.
Make sure it is niche relevant, and include a nice fb group header, description etc.
If you are not sure how to do this, just look at how other groups have done it. (look at their group header picture, descriptions etc.)
I would recommend the following settings:
set your group to private do not set member questions (this means they have to answer questions before they can join) set auto approve to ON (you can change this setting later) Step 2: Get a domain name and hosting
You will need a niche relevant domain name to build a website with later on.
Include this domain name in your group description etc.
Don’t build the website yet, just register the domain name.
My advice would be to use a .com for worldwide/english, or use a local TLD if it’s in another language.
Check your domain name here: You will learn how to set up the website and get traffic in step 4.
Step 3: Fast & Easy Keyword research
You will need a set of keywords that your audience will be looking for – right now- in your niche.
The best way to do this is find trending keywords.
This means keywords that users are actually are looking for
right now. How to find these keywords?
I use a keyword tool called
KeyWord Atlas. Why use KeyWord Atlas and not another keyword tool?
This tool finds keywords you won’t find in other tools (such as keyword planner), because it gets most trending keywords not only from Google, but also from 21 other sources like YouTube, Amazon, Yahoo etc. all at the same time.
Not only that, but with my little hack you only use the hottest and trending keywords that users are searching for right now, regardless of keyword volume.
Keyword volume and PPC price is completely irrelevant in this case.
KeyWord Atlas Review & Tutorial
I highly recommend watching my full review & tutorial of KeyWord Atlas if you want to know more about this amazing tool and how it works.

How to use Keyword Atlas for your Facebook Group
Just type in the most broad keyword for your niche/group.
E.g. if you have an online dating group, just type in: online dating
Then hit search.
When the search has finished, sort the keywords by clicking on the position score tab, so that the highest number is at the top.
The reason why you should do this, as these are the most searched for keywords based on the weighted score of all your selected keywords sources put together.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT SEARCH VOLUME!
Search volume is irrelevant.
Then select 20-40 keywords from the top and copy these, paste them into a text file for later use.
Step 4: Getting new members to join your Facebook Group
The whole point of your new facebook group is to get traffic to your group and ask them to join.
The most difficult part is getting interested people to your group (= getting traffic).
At the start it will be slow, because your Facebook group is new.
Thankfully, when your group starts to grow, Facebook will promote your group more and more in their own search algorithm so it will have a snowball effect.
How to get traffic to your group Method 1: Use Yive Yive (Your Instant Video Empire)is a tool where you can create videos around your topic/niche completely automated, and drive traffic to your facebook group.

Of course you can also use both methods 🙂 Step 5: Extra Promotion of your group
Of course, the traffic methods I described will work, but will take a little time to gain traction.
In the mean time you can help the Facebook algorithm promote your group with these tips:
make sure you promote/share your group whenever possible, but don’t spam make sure you post useful and relevant content in your group every day make sure you engage with your group and help users with questions make sure you use the “let’s welcome new members” feature in the members section to welcome your new members daily make sure you ALWAYS use your website name EVERYWHERE (call to action to send the members to your website) Step 6: Monetize your group
Now the fun part starts.
Make sure you send the traffic from your group to ONE landing page, where you give useful and relevant info which is congruent with your group.
If you have an online dating group, send them to a page with online dating offers, online dating sites, clickbank dating guides etc.
You can also offer your own products and services, or even use it for your clients etc.
Bonus tip 1
Do NOT give up.
Especially in the beginning, it will take time to gain momentum.
The traffic methods described in step 4 is EXACTLY how I drive traffic to my group.
Once your group starts getting traction and gain more members, the facebook algorithm will show it to more and more eyeballs.
Check my screenshot of the group growth at the top of this article to see a typical growth curve.
In the beginning I was just getting a few new members a day.
Now, a year later, I am getting 500 new members a day or more!
Once you start to get a little traction, all you need to do is post regularly in the group (I post once a day) and then the facebook algorithm will take over.
Posting regularly is important, because it’s a signal to facebook that your group (and its admin) is active.
Also make sure to like the posts that your members submit, and engage with them on occasion.
Bonus tip 2
Build an email list!
This way, whatever happens to your group or traffic methods, you will always have your email list as an asset!
And you can send new offers to your members on a regular basis, post this offer in your group and email this to your list.
