Our 5 Favourite Facebook Groups for Women Entrepreneurs
Guest post written by Nina Clapperton
As an entrepreneur, networking is key.
Today, it’s so much more than face-to-face. With the rise of social media, you can network anytime, anywhere. In this way, it has never been easier to meet like-minded entrepreneurs.
How do you find them?
One way to find your community is in Facebook Groups. Gone are the days when Facebook was only for vacation photos and memes. Today, it’s a powerful place to connect, share resources, ask for help, and build relationships.
5 Reasons Why We Love Facebook Groups:
You can connect with people with similar goals and interests
You can get advice
You’ll have more opportunities to market yourself
You can access them 24/7
Of the thousands of entrepreneur-focussed Facebook groups, these ones are best for you because they’re full of active members that share helpful advice and cultivate a supportive community. You’ll learn a lot, network, and market your business all at once! Plus, they’re international so anyone (yes, you!) can join.
Already started a business? Just considering it? Either way, The Lit Up & Loaded Entrepreneur group (8,500 strong) will welcome you with open arms (whew, that sounds nice).
They offer challenges, weekly livestreams, and targeted feedback. This group will help you grow your business.
The group has an awesome 3:1 ratio for engagement: put in 3x more valuable content than self-promotion. So, no wasting time weeding through tons of promos. Your valuable time is better spent on your business.
Women Helping Women is a group all about empowering women to achieve business growth. The group offers video training on social media and public relations.
Christina Rowe started the group in 2016 and has grown it to over 159,000 members! If your target audience is women around the world, this would be a great place to promote your business.
Women Helping Women has a unique mentorship section where you can find a mentor or mentee. This is rare, so jump in there quick!
Simply click to “Offer Support” or “Get Support” and be listed on their carousel of mentors and mentees. Or take charge and scroll through to find your own match. We recommend taking advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from or teach female entrepreneurs.
Join the #ladyposse at Heart-centred Soul-Drive Entrepreneurs to network with other women-business owners, like the founder, Tasha Corbin.
The group has daily themes to inspire conversations and keep the 30k+ members engaged (they’ve been doing it for over 4 years!) From #convostarter Tuesdays to #shoutout Sundays, you’ll find something to post every week. This group is happy to celebrate or answer questions any day.
It can be hard to start posting in a group, but the daily themes help guide the conversation. We love that the #ladyposse are so easy to interact with and quick to help out fellow female-entrepreneurs!
Don’t let the repetitive name throw you, we could not love the tips in this group more. BBB is for more than expanding your reach: it’s for global support from other entrepreneurs.
You’ll find a huge backlog of information in Linda and Clive’s five-year-old group.
If you become a member, you’ll be among 26,000 of other business owners asking for help lending a hand.
We love this group because it offers helpful tips for businesses and allows you to advertise your services.
Here at femmebought, we know #girlsjustwanttohavefunding. This Facebook group knows it, too.
Laura Whitelaw started the group in 2017 to empower female businesses. Grow your income with the group’s inspirational community. Promote your business and capitalize on daily prompts from the group’s founder, a wealth coach.
The group may be small with just over 300 members, but it is just as active as the bigger groups. Posting in this smaller group ensures personal connections that will help with your business network.
Starting your own business doesn’t mean you have to go at it alone. We know the value of community (it’s why we’re building this one!).
