Why should you join Facebook groups with your Facebook page?
The idea behind using Facebook pages instead of your regular profile in a Facebook group is simple. By interacting with the Facebook group and posting valuable content, you can get free visibility without paying a dime.
This growth hack can work in a great way in an era when it is very difficult to get organic reach for free for a Facebook page in a business niche.
Let’s see how you can use this technique. First, you have to join a Facebook group as a page.
How to join a Facebook group as a Facebook Page?
Here is how to join a Facebook group as a page:
- Search for the group
- Open the Facebook group page.
- Click on the ‘Join’ button
- If you can join with a page a popup will appear.
- Select the Facebook page you want to join with.
- Click on ‘Join Group’.
If the Facebook group admins approve your join request, you have successfully joined the Facebook group as a Facebook page.
How to join a Facebook group as a page if you have switched to the new Facebook page experience?
If you have switched to the new Facebook page design, then here is how to join a Facebook group as a page:
- Switch to the new Facebook page
- Open the Facebook page, you want to join.
- Click on the ‘Join Group’ button.
- Answer the Group questions if necessary.
With this, you have joined the Facebook group as a new Facebook page, so from now on you should be able to interact with the Facebook group as a Facebook page.
Can’t join a Facebook group as a page
If you can’t join the Facebook group as a Facebook page, the most likely reason is that the Facebook group admin of that group disabled the option to be able to join as a Facebook page.
In this case, there isn’t anything you can do.
Use your Facebook page to interact with the Facebook group
Once you successfully joined a Facebook group as a page, you can start using the engagement strategy I have mentioned.
There is nothing special in this strategy. Post valuable content, engage with comments, like other members’ comments, and be as helpful as you can.
For this strategy to work, you should obviously join Facebook groups where your Facebook page topic is highly relevant.
When group members see your Facebook posts, helpful comments, it is likely that eventually, they are going to check your Facebook page as well.
Besides getting a higher organic reach for your Facebook page, you can also invite people who liked your comments or your Facebook posts to like your Facebook page.
