“David, should I include a private Facebook group with my products & programs?”

Wonderful question, grasshopper.

Watch my answer below:

…and let me know in the comments section YOUR experience with private FB groups in either running them or being a part of them

  • Hi David,

    Thanks for the video and the advice. I love your list of group guidelines to set expectations. I agree that it’s very important to set expectations.

    Would you recommend making a private FB group part of your core product/course or would it be better to offer it as an added bonus?

    Keep up the great work. Thanks also for your recent webinar. Really got a lot of value listening to the replay.

    PS: I see you still promoting “LeadPlayer” – you’re aware that they’ve stopped selling new copies, right? http://www.leadplayer.com/pcpfto/

    Very timely advice for me as I’m considering this very decision. LOVE the option/encouragement to launch first and *then* decide whether a Facebook group is the right thing for my customers and something I’m able/willing to take on. That’s exactly what I’m going to do – thank you, David!

    • Totally and what’s nice about doing your own products and programs is it is. totally. up. to. you 🙂

  • I was looking for a platform other than Facebook to give students the ability to post jpgs and links so we could look at each others “assignments.” A private Facebook group turned out to be the easiest way to do that. Smart Creative Style is a 6 week beginning and end course so I am actively involved for 6 weeks and tell the students the exact date when I jump out. (a couple weeks after the finish) I think it works perfectly because there is a beginning and end and I limit the number of students who run through the course at a time. I then turn the group into “alumni” group so they maintain the relationships that they developed during the 6 weeks, which have turned out to be pretty amazing! The intimate nature of the group policies itself.

    Wow, hate to be Debbie Downer, but it sounds like alot of work! Will consider it later on since I already launched. Thanks D!

    Nice stuff David. Heard you on SPI and I’m hooked on your content now (thanks a lot!). Question on this post. Do you know of an easy way to invite my email list to a private Facebook group? I use MailChimp. No worries if you don’t—I’ll keep Googling. Love the content and the interview. I’m inspired.
