Facebook Group or Forum (on your own website)?
And How to Create a Thriving Online Community That Will Be Around For The Next 5-, 15- or maybe even 50 years.
Welcome to episode #69 of the SubscribeMe show from SubscribeMe.fm.
I’m your host Ravi Jayagopal. This is the podcast to listen to, to learn about creating membership sites & online courses, making, marketing and monetizing digital content, WordPress, eCommerce, digital marketing, and tools, techniques and tips that you can use to create a long term, profitable online business.
I am the co-founder & co-developer of DigitalAccessPass.com, arguably the best membership plugin in the industry, fondly known as DAP.
Creating a Facebook group is easy. But is it the right thing for your community?
Should you create a Facebook Group? Or an Online Forum on your own site, your own domain on your own hosting account?
This episode is for you if you have a Facebook group that doesn’t have many members… or has many members, but not enough engagement… or maybe you’re planning to start a community, but you’re torn between a Facebook group and creating your own Forum.
And even if you have a successful Facebook group right now, and have absolutely no plans of starting your own forum, I would still urge you to listen to the entire episode, because I hope – actually, I know – that there is going to be something in here that you may not have thought of before.
So be sure to listen to the show for the rest, using the player above (or below).
My New Online Forum
The entire episode is about creating your own Forum, instead of going with a Facebook group.
And that’s exactly what I did for my own business: Check out my online forum at Forum.SubscribeMe.fm
