And I can see many network and affiliate marketers making major mistakes and some I did myself. If you want to know the best Facebook group method for prospecting and selling products, definitely follow John and Nadya Melton.

So what exactly am I talking about? Here is one example…

I don’t know about you but it is incredibly annoying for to accept someone’s friend request or LinkedIn invitation.

Then I get a notification about a group update or group chat that I don’t know anything about, neither did I choose to join.

I try to leave but the person keep adding me back. Has this ever happened to you?

1. Have a clear purpose for your group.

2. Avoid adding people to groups without their permission.

Ensure the prospect agrees and understands the reason, expectation and process before the person joins the group.

3. Don’t spam by constantly bombarding your group with links without providing value.

4. Give the treatment by providing exclusive content and opportunities to your group.

5. Create a sense of community ,

People are open to learning new things that will help their issues. They also want to feel a part of a community, Hence be intentional with your content to keep the group members engaged.
