When you are starting from scratch, a new Facebook group can take a big investment of time. You may worry — Is it growing? Is it failing to grow? And what should you do about it?

This week Kathi is back with Facebook groups guru Tonya Kubo in Part Four of their series on How to Build a Life-Changing Facebook group. They talk about how to strike a balance in managing your new group, including:

  • How much time a new group leader can expect to spend in a group.
  • How to bring on a team of helpers, even if your group is free.
  • How to make a plan for consistent content and engagement.

Listen in and figure out your balance between perfectly planned and responding more intuitively to the needs of your community. 

If you haven’t already, be sure to catch Episode One here, how to set up your Facebook group. Episode Two, right here, covered keeping your group safe with great rules. And you can find Episode Three here, which focused on how to add value to your Facebook group.

Want to learn even more about leading a great group? Be sure to join Tonya Kubo’s free group, The Secret to Thriving Online Communities.
