*Yes I have affiliates - it' show I help keep this free information FREE! However, it's products that I beleive in and comes at no extra cost to you.
Facebook is an INCREDIBLE source of website and blog traffic.
I recently wrote a post how Facebook groups started my blog off on the right foot. It helped drive traffic, increase Pinterest rep-ins, gain Pinterest follows, and increased my Google SEO rankings. However, I must add that it also brought my Facebook page to life. In face, my Nicole Stone Outdoors page now has thousands of followers and reaches tens of thousands of people per post.
However, as I mentioned in Facebook guide, it’s about the quality of the groups - not the quantity.
That’s why I’ve compiled a list of my FAVORITE groups. These groups have ACTIVE members and keep well-managed collaboration threads.
You can also learn about my 5 unique strategies for building traffic (what’s helped me break the 50,000 pageview mark).
THE 5 GROUPS YOU NEED
I use Blogger’s Unite as many times as possible during the week. This is because it is the ultimate group for Pinterest users. There are active “re-pin threads” ever single day. This gives you tremendous opportunity to share your pins that need a boost and build long term momentum. It also has over 7,000 members and is continuously growing.

One of the best ways to generate Pinterest authority is through pinning directly from your website/blog. Groups like Blogging For New Bloggers allows you to share these links with fellow bloggers.
The group offers numerous different blog comment and share threads including a generic “Share Day”, a “Blog Share Day” “Comment Day” and even “Social Share” days (when you can share any social media platform of your choice).
This is one of the BEST groups for building an audience.
This is one of the most, if not the most, beneficial group that exists on Facebook. Michelle is world known for making millions of dollars from blogging. Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing is her Facebook group.
She not only gives you access to very high quality collaboration threads but also gives you direct access to HER. It’s like having a free consultant - FREE advice from someone who has literally made millions at blogging.
She answers questions, helps motivate you, and has some of the world’s biggest bloggers in her group. This is a must have for success (it’s also my favorite group).

Boss Girl Bloggers is huge. It has over 30,000 members and is growing.
It also works by providing tons of exposure to both your blog and your brand. However, where Boss Girl Blogger’s stands out is in its Instagram promotion. There is even a sister group that is exclusively Instagram collaboration threads. Therefore if Instagram is your thing - then DEFINITELY take advantage of this group. Of course, the weekly blog promotion and general conversations are bonuses as well.
Members are very active and passionate - and you will get a solid return on your time investment.

Improve your ENTIRE social media :
The social Media Network Group is for the serious influencers who want to build up their followings in ALL social media and search engine platforms. It has over 18,000 members and focuses on more specific goals such as improving your Alexa ranking and building up your YouTube ranking.
It’s important to note that these require reciprocating with everyone. I normally suggest people shy away from such large time commitments; however, the shear amount of promotion that this group offers makes it well worth it.

THE KEY TO FACEBOOK SUCCESS
The key to success is staying consistent. These groups all offer HUGE benefits. Therefore participating in them as much as possible should be your goal. Remember, these groups only work if you work. Therefore reciprocate with others, make friends, and most importantly don’t be afraid to ask questions!
