What to avoid in Facebook groups

Nick Gulic

What's inside?

Facebook groups are an amazing place for agency owners to build up relationships, learn and give back. They are also the potential source of distraction if we engage with certain characters. In this episode, Nick shares his experiences in Facebook groups and they key types of people, posts and conversations to avoid to help protect your time and your mental health.

Nick breaks it down into:

  • The “What is this Google?”
  • The “facepalm”
  • The “desperado”
  • The “TLDR”
  • The “helper”
  • The “jerk”
  • The “authority”.

    Fantastic points about how to engage in groups. I really enjoyed the part about Nick saying, “It was me the other day, I was the jerk!” Haha.

    I think it is important to understand that we have all either been, or been tempted to, become one of those stereotypes in a group from time to time. There is a right way and a wrong way to engage with members of FB groups or any other social platform for that matter. It boils back down to being natural, focus on building actual value to the group as a whole, and not trying to look for every opportunity to throw your name in front of other people or send them down a funnel.

    Sales is supposed to be about providing something to someone that they want or need. Most people tend to leave off that last part and try to make you want it.

    Thanks for the great podcast guys! Look forward to more from both of you.
