Have you noticed the rise in Facebook group popularity in 2020? Regardless of the niche, it seems like everyone and their mother has a group. And why not? Groups are absolutely the best way to cultivate your following and build your own community.
Now I’m assuming since you’re reading this, that you already have a Facebook group. So that means you know Facebook doesn’t have the ability to collect and let you email your group members directly.
I mean look, I know you’re a savvy person and you probably have a few workarounds you’re applying to add your group members to your email list. But I know it’s very time consuming for you.
But what if I told you there was a better and easier way to automatically collect emails and add your Facebook group members to your choice of the best autoresponders, all without Zapier!
Well, guess what..there is! It’s called Group Leads.
Group Leads is an interesting browser extension (Chrome and Firefox at the moment) that allows its users to convert every new Facebook Group member to an email list subscriber.
Not only are you able to expand your list from your Facebook community with this smart app. You are also able to get new group member’s data posted automatically to a Google Sheet for further processing.
When you are running a Facebook page, this could be a piece of gold for you, despite the value of gathering and storing email addresses of your community members so you have complete power.
If you’ve ever had a Facebook group, then you know that when people want to join your party, you have the option to ask them up to 3 questions.
It helps you to do 2 things:
- Monitor and filter those who request to join to make sure they ‘re actually a good fit for your Facebook group.
- Filter and turn down low-quality people by utilizing friction points.
Some Facebook group admins and owners are thinking outside of the box and utilize one of those questions as an opportunity to gather email addresses (something every group owner should be doing). This helps them to sell a lead magnet in return for the email address.
