What is Best Group Platform for Affiliates?
There are so many options for group communities out there, Facebook, LinkedIn, Circle, MeWe and more!
How do you know which one to choose for your group though?
I guess you’d need to figure out what is most important to you but for me, as an affiliate, as an online marketer, I want people to see my posts.
It’s nice that Facebook is so popular and most use Facebook for groups.
What frustrates me the most about Facebook groups is that you don’t get notified all the time and you end up missing new posts or new comments.
What is most important to Affiliates?
I don’t know about you, but as an affiliate, I want to be there for my clients and prospects.
If I create a group and then people join that group and post something in the group, I want to know that right away!
If I post in the group, I want everyone to know I did!
If I create a group to build a community, I want everyone in the group to be notified when anyone posts in it!
Of course, I also want everyone in the group to be able to choose if they get notified!
To notify or not to notify!
There will be different points of view on this of course as some people feel they are already getting enough notifications.
If you’re one of those people that find notifications annoying and so do not want to annoy others, you might want to reconsider that position.
You see, if you’re building a business online, the most important thing to do is build an audience.
On social platforms, the best way to build an audience is for prospects to see your content enough for them to know, like and trust you.
Unfortunately, if they don’t see your content, they will never trust you and buy from you!
So, even if it annoys you, remember that they need to see your stuff and the best way is for them to get notified!
Let them choose their notifications
That’s the thing with social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn and others… they choose when to notify people!
Personally, I want to decide if I get notifications or not! And when I post, I want everyone to know about it!
I mean, seriously, why am I posting in a group if I don’t want people seeing it?
That’s why I built groups into Click eCourse platform (also friends and pages) and I built the notifications to be under the receiver’s control.
Who do you want in your Group?
There are all kinds of people, and in terms of notifications, there are truly many types.
Some don’t want any and some want them all…
Yet, other would prefer an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly digest to their emails.
Sure, you want people interested in your topic, you want people who will engage but you also, most definitely, want people who will accept notifications.
If not, the only way they see your posts is if they actually go to the group every 5 minutes but they really should be doing more important things!
What is Click eCourse platform?
The platform where you can setup a group and have it’s members notified every time there’s a new post, a new comment or a reply to a comment is called Click eCourse.
It’s a platform with lots of other features and where you can get started for free at https://www.clickecourse.com/group and create your first group.
Once you’ve create the group, you can invite people to join your group and get it growing fast.
There’s still improvement coming to the platform so I’d love to hear any suggestions for features you’d like to see too!
As you might see in the video, there are still issues with the platform but by the time you read this blog post or watch that video, those issues will be resolved.
Some features still need work and some need to be added but the idea with the group platform is that as an affiliate or online marketer, you want people to see your posts.
Even as a member, if you post, you want others to see and especially the admin of the group to see it.
Not to mention comments on posts or even replies to comments!
Watch the video to see more of how this works and share with your marketer friends who need this group platform too!
