If you’re reading this blog – my guess is you already have a Facebook Group and you understand that question memes for Facebook Groups are one the easiest and most effective ways to keep your Facebook engaged.
There are a few reasons why question memes for Facebook Groups work so well…
Why Question Memes for Facebook Groups are good for your Group Members
Firstly, people like to talk about themselves and by asking an engaging question – you’re giving a person the opportunity to talk about themselves. This makes the Facebook Group member feel good and ideally remember that they felt good after replying to your post.
Secondly, people like to have fun and your question meme should be fun. Ideally, your Facebook Group member will see the post, smile, scroll through, read some of the comments and then leave a comment themselves. This makes the Facebook Group member feel good and ideally remember that they felt good after replying to your post.
Why Question Memes for Facebook Groups are good for YOU as the Group Admin
Your goal as the Group Admin should be to generate as many comments from these question memes for your Facebook Group as possible. A lot of people will tell you ‘comments’ is a vanity metric and it won’t make a difference to your bottom line. There’s an ‘element of truth to that statement but only if you do it wrong! If you use question memes for your Facebook Groups the right way – it will increase your bottom line and here’s why.
The way the Facebook algorithm works, when you make a post – not everyone in your Group is going to see that post, only a small percentage will (usually your most loyal followers or the users that have interacted with your last few posts). To keep it simple, let’s just say Facebook shows it to 100 people.
Depending on how these 100 people interact with your post, will depend on how kind Facebook is going to be to you and how much reach they will give your post.
If only a small percentage of these 100 people interact with your post, Facebook will stop there and stop showing to people in the news feed.
If a large percentage of this 100 people interacts with your post, Facebook will deem that as a good post and then show it to another 100 people. If a high percentage of this second 100 people interact with your post – Facebook will show it to another 100 and then another 100 and they keep going until people stop interacting with it.
Why is this an advantage? Does it really matter if people are seeing a silly question meme? Is that going to make you more sales?
Potentially because what you’re doing is ‘warming up your algorithm’ all these people that interacted with your ‘question meme’ and are now in your ‘warm list’. So instead of your next post reaching 100 people – it may reach 200 people!
So Questions Memes for Facebook Groups can lead to more sales, providing after you post a good meme that generates a lot of interaction, follow it up with a sales type post next.
The other reason why Question Memes for Facebook Groups are good for you as the user is because it allows you to test how well you know your audience. Different questions will work for different Groups.
For example, I have two different Facebook Groups, one is for Fitness Trainers and one is for Online Course Creators. The type of question memes that work in my Facebook Group for Fitness Trainers is usually different from the type of question memes that work in my Course Creator Facebook Group. There’s obviously some overlap between the two and questions work great for both but 90% of the time – I’m posting totally different memes in each Group or if I am using the same question meme – then I’m tweaking it to make it work.
“Tag the best Personal Trainer you know” – this worked amazing in the Fitness Trainer Group but if I posted “Tag the best Course Creator you know” – it wouldn’t work as well in my Course Creator group.
The reason being, Fitness Trainers are often very supportive of each other. They became a Fitness Trainer because another Fitness Trainer inspired them, they probably also work at a gym with a heap of other Fitness Trainers who inspire them. Fitness Training is also a very practical profession so Trainers are always attending different face-to-face conventions and networking with other Trainers. Fitness is also often a community-type thing – most Fitness Trainers have a training partner who is also a Fitness Trainer..
Course Creators on the other hand… are completely different. They usually work on their own and have never met another Course Creator in person. All the events, courses they complete are online. So they don’t have that same level of community.
“I need to win an argument, LinkedIn Groups are a waste of time. Agree or Disagree?”
This post worked really well in my Course Creator Group but if I posted in my Group for Fitness Trainers, it wouldn’t work so well.
Reason being, Course Creators are always looking for two things. Firstly, they are always looking for more potential students. The only place they can find students is online, so chances are they have tried every trick in the book to look for more clients – LinkedIn Groups being one of them. On top of that Course Creators are looking to connect with other Course Creators Online and Groups are the best way to do this.
Also, Course Creators are usually in front of their computer all day – so they have the time to check out all the different platforms.
Fitness Trainers, on the other hand, barely know how to use LinkedIn. They wouldn’t even know what a LinkedIn Group is or how to access it – so the question would go over their head.
“What was your profession before you were a “Fitness Trainer / Course Creator”
This question meme worked great for both Groups because very few people finish school and decide to be a “fitness trainer” or a “course creator”, 99% of both of those professions started their careers in a different profession and like to share their previous role and either how it helped them or how much they hated it :p.
The bottom line, I know what question memes are going to be successful in each Group because I know my audience so well. Part of the reason why I know my audience so well is because I’ve posted so many question memes over the years I know the mindset of my audience and what they will react too.
The reason why this helps increase my revenue is that the better I know my audience the better I can craft a sales offer for them.
