Are you looking for a networking community where you can promote your brand and learn about brands and businesses?

I’ve learned how to grow my business and generate website traffic by adopting marketing strategies and planning out content, landing collaborations, partnership opportunities, and engaging with all types of niche brands.
This blog post will provide tips to newbie bloggers, business owners, influencers, and content creators who want to start networking and find blogging groups to join. This post also contains 8 Blogging Groups that I have recommended that will help you get comfortable navigating and engaging in online groups and communities.
Facebook is the #1 platform when it comes to searching for blogging groups to join online. I know that some people are skeptical about if Facebook groups are worth joining or if they work. I have had more success than bad experiences. Facebook is one of the best platforms for marketing and advertising your business, and it is easy to connect with content creators and business owners. Most blogging groups contain threads that will have discussions to allow you to ask questions for advice and support. There is a range of people who use Facebook groups to connect– from newbies to advanced experts. You must take advantage of the tools and resources given in discussions and topics posted in the blogging groups that you plan to join. These tools and resources will help you grow and promote your business online. I’ve tripled my followers, likes, and views on social media by networking in Facebook blogging groups! I’ve seen influencers land 3-6 figure brand deals with brand companies. The possibilities and opportunities are THERE. Just look at what other business owners, content creators, and influencers had to say about their experience with blogging groups:
So, how do you get involved and start networking? You can:
- Join the conversation
- Give & receive feedback
- Take advantage of opportunities
- Follow, engage, and subscribe to competitors
Start with searching groups on Facebook to find one that will fit your goals and to achieve them. After you join your first group, agree to the rules of engagement and begin jumping into community discussions. It’s okay if you want to observe what’s going on first, to get an understanding of how the engagement group will work. Introduce yourself and your brand! You can instantly start following, engaging, and subscribing to brands that respond to you. Leave comments on social media posts and YouTube videos! There are some great conversations taking place and you should want to be a part of them. This is a great idea for influencers who are interested in landing brand deals and partnerships. Brand companies look everywhere online for influencers to be a part of their influencer campaigns!
