Know the Difference between a Fan Page and a Group!

Posted on February 19, 2017 at 9:35 PM


I get asked daily the between GROUPS and FAN PAGES aka Business Pages. Most don't know, so I will break it down to you.

A group is where you post things you can't post to the public. Like special pricing to honor your GROUP VIPS - yes - people in your GROUP are your VIP's.

However, if you aren't utilizing a fan page - aka BUSINESS PAGE... you are missing out on SO MANY TOOLS!

The Business Page acts as a way to reach people who aren't familiar with your business. Think about it - if you don't know what something is all about, do you want to JOIN?

Your fan page gains LIKES - your group doesn't. Each person has to be added to your group.

When your fans LIKE your page - it posts on fb, so you can reach friends of friends... A WIDER REACH.

No one is notified when someone joins a group.

ALSO - if people don't know they are in that group - and your group is no longer in their algorithms... they aren't seeing what you post.

Trust me - unless you are continually working that group to bring those people back to the group aka tagging them - messaging them... a LARGE PORTION don't even know they are in the group.

Like our numbers in here.... they used to be REALLY HIGH... but we do a RELEVANCE clean up monthly. This is to remind people they are in the group - making sure no one just added them and they don't know they are in here <--- this happens in A LOT of groups.

It makes our numbers lower - but we know that the people in this group want to be in this group, and know they are.

When you have a business page - fb builds insights to tell you what your followers want to see - what they like.

ALSO - people can SHARE your posts from a Fan Page - they can't in your group.

GROUP ARE GOOD - don't get me wrong... but they have their place.

You can do more on a page than you can in a group.

You can even schedule out your posts and build videos.


OK - I think I summed it up for you.

Oh - one more thing - you never want to list a GROUP on print ads - you will lose people as soon as they see they have to join... AND - you want to see when insights INCREASE - so drive them to your fan page... then from there.... get them to your group.

Fan Page - they can click a shop now button - to get them to your website - and to your group. If you skip this step - you are cutting yourself out of potential website traffic and an opportunity for a follow, and then to get them to your group.

Hope this helps! :D

I want to show some thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from such a instance. As a result of researching through the online world and coming across things that were not productive, I believed my life was done. Existing without the presence of solutions to the problems you have sorted out by way of your entire website is a crucial case, as well as those which might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your site. Your personal natural talent and kindness in taking care of almost everything was important. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a step like this. I'm able to at this time relish my future. Thanks so much for this reliable and results-oriented help. I won't be reluctant to propose the blog to any individual who needs to have guide about this issue.
