Facebook groups are now the place to be if you want to read about the latest marketing tactics.
But we all know that most of them are full of self-promotion and brag posts.
The best marketing Facebook groups aren’t like that.
They’re heavily moderated for quality and quick to ban spammers and scammers.
This list will cover the groups that are packed with actionable advice and valuable insights to help you become a better marketer.
I’ve joined and learnt from each one of these and look forward to seeing you in a few.
Facebook Ads Groups
These are the best facebook ads groups around. Of the 10+ I’m a member of, these are easily the best.
Creator: Cat Howell
Despite the ginormous size of this group, it is a gem. The culture of the group is positive and people genuinely are willing to help out and provide value where they can. Knowledge bombs in this group are exactly what they say they are… a long-form break down detailing a campaign’s success. Expect to see lots of advice on scaling campaigns and impressive return on ad spend multiples. No group is immune to low-value posts and this one is no different, but the value makes up for it.
Creator: Tim Burd
I’d put this group at the same level as Ad Hacks. It’s community-led with lots of helpful and useful discussion and often some real value posts. As with Ad Hacks, the majority of the content will be people complaining about having their accounts banned or asking basic questions. But luckily the Facebook algorithm kindly removes this from my feed so only the best posts show up.
Creator: Alex Fedotoff
This is the last group I’d include in the top tier for quality content. This group is slightly different from the others, as the founder Alex plays a more active role. The result is that the group functions as a bit of an outlet for his content and blog promotion. Which isn’t necessarily a negative comment as his content is top notch!
Creator: Kyle Sulerud
This is the biggest group for Google Ads so it attracts a whole range of people from absolute beginners, small businesses through to agencies. This means there is both a wide variety of niches as well as knowledge. Perfect if you want a broad understanding of Google Ads.
Creator: Isaac Rudansky
Though the group is named after Isaac this group is definitely a community-led group rather than another personality focussed group. The group has it’s founding following Isaas’s incredibly successful (123,000+ students) Google Ads course. I’ve taken the course and it’s a great intro to Google Ads. The group functions as a kind of a support community for his course sales. This is actually a perfect structure for a successful group as all users are in the group to learn and share.
Creator: Amy Hebdon & James Hebdon
The smaller size of this group absolutely does not represent the quality of the content as this group. This group is the nuts for practical and field-tested strategies. The creators regularly share useful knowledge and best practice on what people should be doing. Though it doesn’t personally interest me, they also go into a lot of detail around the practicalities of running an agency and the challenges that entails.
SEO Facebook groups are rife with spammers and people trying to sneak affiliate links into their posts. Stay away from those and join these awesome groups.
Creator: Steve Kang
The biggest SEO group worth joining. Steve does a great job at keeping the spam out and is well connected enough to get expert guests to do insightful AMA’s
Creator: Human Proof Designs
I know that this one isn’t strictly a”SEO group”… but I strongly believe that you should learn from anyone who is a subject matter expert. Affiliates are definitely subject matter experts in SEO, hence why this group makes the cut. There are plenty of cutting edge tricks as well as experienced SEO’s who’ve been there, done it and learnt from it.
Creator: Daniel Cuttridge
This is a rather new group and is on the bleeding edge of the “on-page” trend that is happening right now. Daniel shares a bunch of insights into his on-page tests and leads by example in SEO-testing. This attitude is followed by the group who all share useful insights they’ve learnt from their own experience.
Creator: Glen Allsop
This group is awesome, if only because Glen shares insightful tidbits every now again. He’s a sharp guys and knows his SEO, so getting access to his musings should be enough reason to join this group.
Wrapping it up
There are so many groups out there and so many discussions happening that you can’t even dream of reading it all. You’ve got to pick your battles and spend time where you’ll get the most out of it. Personally I think these are the best marketing facebook groups, but you may prefer something a bit different.
