I am in love with Facebook groups! Why? Believe it or not, Facebook groups have driven a lot of traffic to my website. I talk more about this in my post, How I went from 0 – 500 email subscribers in 30 days!
As a business owner, you’re always looking for new ways to drive more traffic, but that’s not the only reason you should join Facebook groups. My absolute favorite thing about groups is the supportive communities I have found.
Being a team of one entrepreneur can be lonely! Sometimes you need to bounce ideas off of someone else, share exciting news or vent about your low points. Facebook groups are a safe place to do exactly that!
When you join a group be sure to read the guidelines so you understand the type of posts that are allowed and what’s not allowed. Some groups have a no promotion policy, and others allow any and all types of promotions. My favorite groups allow you to promote your business, but only in specific threads.
Here are five of my absolute favorite Facebook groups for entrepreneurs. These are the groups I’ve found to be the most helpful and supportive. They are comprised primarily of women, but men are welcome too!
TEAM OF ONE BIZ OWNERS
Naturally, my own Facebook group is my favorite! I started this group for team of one business owners, AKA solopreneurs. Most of the Facebook groups I’ve found are focused solely on bloggers.
Bloggers aren’t the only entrepreneurs with a drive to succeed! Whether you’re a dentist, nutritionist, landscaper, Mary Kay distributor, or blogger you can benefit from connecting with other entrepreneurs. I also share social media and digital marketing tips to help you promote your business, drive traffic, and increase sales!
ONLINE BUSINESS BFFs
I absolutely love this group hosted by Melyssa Griffin of melyssagriffin.com. Melyssa has such a positive spirit and her group mimics that spirit! The members genuinely want to support and help one another. If you’re on the fence about Facebook groups and want to test them out, start with this one!

MY PRO BLOG + BIZ
This group is for online business owners and is hosted by Erika Madden of Olyvia.co. This group has a similar feel to Melyssa Griffin’s group and is another great place to get feedback and advice from very positive, supportive business owners.
