3 tips for a successful group

create a 12 month plan

Post your roadmap or a strategy, so that each month, your fans will know what to look forward to. A public plan proves you know where you’re doing.

weekly post

Decide 1 thing you’ll do or add each week. It can be original, a repost, or your b log content. Mix it up; 1 video, 1 article, 1 live chat, 1 photo/quote graphic.

start small

Build close relationships with your early fans, and spend plenty of time with them. They will help you pass the torch to new members.
