If your initial network hasn’t reach 500 people you will have a hard time getting enough momentum for your group to take off.
4) Target Your Initial Members Having powerful and influential friends as core members of the group is vital.
Hand select the people who you want to be there and send them personal invitations. You need to choose people who are dynamic on Facebook or Twitter, people who are famous, people who have huge followings, people who have large networks and people who are already experts and leaders within your niche.
Having these people as initial members instantly gives your group credibility.
Honor those who first join by making them officers and ask them what title they would like under their name.
Make sure it can still be read when it is reduced in size.
Many groups make their Logo much longer than its wide it then becomes a full banner advertisement and takes up more space when its listed on the group page giving it more prominence.5) Create A Whisper Campaign Tell your friends about the group in an indirect way long before you are going to launch, hint about it in blog posts, in teleseminars and in wall posts and in all your communications with your potential core members.Get them excited and they will start to talk about your new group even before you open the doors.Get your favorite bloggers to write an article about your group.Start a discussion using Facebook Notes and make your group the logical solution to a problem that people might face.3) Leverage Your Friends You can’t grow a group huge without the help of other people.
