Facebook has just announced that they are now allowing pages to join and network in groups. This makes marketing your business via Facebook groups a more powerful option than ever before. Whether you choose to network in groups as an individual, or as your business, Facebook groups are a great way to reach a wider audience, make valuable connections and learn loads from other female entrepreneurs.
There are thousands of Facebook groups out there, so if you’re just getting started it can be tricky to know which will add value at the early stages. Read on to discover my top 10 Facebook groups to join for female entrepreneurs and lifestyle business owners…
1. The Lit up & Loaded Entrepreneur
This is a great group for female entrepreneurs who are just starting their entrepreneurial journey. With 7,000+ members, on an average day there’s about 70 new posts to get through. While this might sound like a lot, and like being an active member of the group might take up a lot of time, this is a valuable group to be part of, and you can read the posts that relate to you and engage with just ten minutes input a day.
The members mostly talk about business strategy, offering support and advice to one another. In addition, the group hosts a love monthly coaching session.

2. Goal Digger Podcast Insiders
If you’re yet to listen to the Goal Digger podcast by Jenna Kutchermake a mental note to download an episode this evening! The Goal Digger Podcast Insiders group has an amazing 31,000+ members and is growing daily. Members can post freely in the group, although this is a ‘no promo’ group, so avoid posting links and promoting your content and your services.
The group presents a great opportunity to gain some valuable advice when it comes to marketing your business, and is also a great way to network and make valuable connections.

This is the free members’ group by Carrie Green, founder of The Female Entrepreneur Associationand author of She Means Business. Carrie also has another group, which is part of her members’ club. I have been a member of both groups, and while the paid group presents more opportunities, the free group is also a great place to start if you’re not ready to take the plunge and sign up for the membership yet.
