Do you know how to add units to your groups?
In this article, I’m gonna show you exactly how to do that, and how to leverage it for the success of your Facebook groups.
Groups can be an awesome way to engage your audience but most marketers are missing the mark on this.
Today we’re gonna take a deep dive into it and I am gonna show you what all you need to know about how to leverage units in your Facebook group.
So, let us first try to understand what exactly a unit in the Facebook group is.
What Is A Unit?
Units are a really cool way to organize your content in your Facebook group.
Have you ever been stuck at that time where someone asked the question, maybe it’s for like the tenth time, and you have already answered it so many time, and you go to the search bar, and you’re trying to look it up, and then you can’t find it, and then you spend ten minutes answering the questions?
Well, this is exactly what units help you solve because you can take those actual posts, or those questions, and add them to a unit.
Don’t forget that in order to have units, you have to have a “social learning group”. So let me show you what that looks like.
How To Use Social Learning
So the first thing you need to do is that you have to jump on over to your Facebook group from your computer and then click on “Settings” on the left navigation menu. Then under “Group type” you are going to switch it over to this “Social learning” feature.
So now, we have activated social learning we are now going to see this additional option that’s called units.
Unit is the way of organizing Facebook group content. Using units you can effectively organize all of your content in your Facebook group so it makes it easier for the people to come in and begin instantly to get the value from the community.
Now here something I recommend for you for sure is having unit one be “Getting started “where you can create a welcome video say watch first and welcome them to the group by talking a little bit about the function of how to get the most out of it.
You can also create a document that showcases the group rules. I always think it’s a good idea for you to get some clarity what can be done because obviously you are gonna have people out there that join your group that wants to take advantage or spam or whatever so having some rules is a good idea and then if you are building your personal brand let’s say you can now put here some of your maybe downloadable write your PDF downloads that people can grab and get instant value from.
Ok, so unit 1 “Getting started” then you can go ahead and think about what could be the next couple of units of content.
Note: you can also rearrange the order of your units. Click on “settings” and you can just drag and drop. Cool right.
How To Put Content Within Units You Created
Ok, now how do you put actually content inside units?
if your group is not that big you can just begin to scroll and look for content that you want to put into a category so let say you want to grab a video and right now it’s not organized at all so you can go ahead and click on these three dots and take a look.
You can go ahead and drop that video into one of the units you already have created or you can click to add a new unit, you can name the unit, you can name the video, and can also create a little note about that particular post and you can move on now.
If you know that you have specific content maybe you can type a keyword so it makes it easier for you to pull up that piece of content but basically you are gonna want to budget some time to go through the content you’ve created to organize it.
Here is another cool thing that I really love about creating these units under “Setting” you can actually choose this “Show progress” option and basically the members of the group are gonna be notified on how they are doing through the units. It’s gonna show them did they complete that or did they not complete the unit so pretty cool feature, play with it.
It’s a pretty cool feature to play with it. At last, I’m gonna leave you with one more bonus tip that is how to add admin to Facebook group. If you are busy and don’t have enough time to organize your Facebook group content, it is better to make someone trustworthy an admin.
