If you’ve been on Facebook for a while, you must have encountered Facebook Groups and probably know how they operate.

A Facebook group is a collection of people with similar interests. A Group could be based on any niche. E.g. entertainment, news, politics, business etc.

To make money from Facebook groups, the first step is to choose a niche. Pick something you have a basic level of knowledge about. For example, you can set up a Facebook group where people can get the latest entertainment gists or even one that teaches people how to cook, or learning something new.

The key here is to create a Facebook Group that offers value or solves a problem.

When you create the group, send invites to your friend list to join. Don’t just stop there. Share your group link on other groups and social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Twitter and Instagram.

It might take a little bit of time for your Group to grow into thousands. But that’s where consistency comes in. As you continue to offer value, the Facebook algorithm will begin recommending your group to their users and you’ll start having requests from people seeking to join. Thus, your group will grow organically. With very little or no effort.

As your group reaches a considerable number of audience, people looking to advertise their services or products will approach you. You can calibrate your prices as you deem fit.
