For Ideas look at the groups that have grown to over 1000 members and compare the names to those that that are still stuck at around 150 members.If your name is boring most people automatically assume your group will be too.After this point it will hit critical mass and continue to grow on its own.
Your group will become a valuable resource instead of a derelict notice board for spammers 8)Aim For Viral Visibility The more activity you generate the bigger your viral foot print will be in Facebook’s newsfeed.
You want to get your group to 500 members as quickly as possible so that it maintains its growth velocity.
Use Facebook Events and hold a teleseminar to publicize it and/or write Facebook notes and tag all your initial members, get them interacting with each other and keep sending them back to the group page to post on the wall and participate in the discussions.
Groups are not just confined to a single location, they spill out all over the place.
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. 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.3) Leverage Your Friends You can’t grow a group huge without the help of other people.Groups go viral because people invite their friends to join.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.
