Grow, Engage, and Profit from Your Community…
Even If You Don’t Know Where to Start, Have Given Up, or Are Struggling to Manage a Huge, Messy Group
A 10-week course designed to give you exactly what you need to use Facebook groups to create a community that fuels your thriving business. When you complete this course, you’ll know exactly how to set up and manage your group for maximum engagement, and ultimately, profitability (yes, even if your existing group is comatose—we can wake it up!).
Before I explain more…
I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself, so you know how I’m qualified to teach you this stuff AND why I want to!
I’m Sandra De Freitas…
a Business Coach specializing in launches—and in using groups to build your audience, grow your group, and get its members engaged, warmed up, and ready to buy during your next launch!
Although I have no visions of being a celebrity, I’ve become well-known for the way I manage groups. I’ve always been great with technology. I earned my degree in Computer Science, and later became a Business Coach.
Next year, I’ll celebrate 15 years in business, in the Internet marketing world. I wrote the book on using the web to grow your profits (it’s called “Does This Blogsite Make My Wallet Look Fat?”). I’ve earned more than 10 digital marketing certifications from Digital Marketer, and I’ve spoken on many big stages, even emceeing for Andrea Lee’s and Alicia Forest’s events.
I was also a Head Coach for TRIBE’s high-end TRIBE + program for a year, alongside Stu McLaren.
During that time, I did launch consulting, online technology consulting, created launch debriefs, membership site tours, ran hot-seat coaching, and held more than 300 one-on-one coaching calls.
More importantly for the purpose of this story, I was the Community Manager for six of their groups (one had more than 16,000 members when I left!). I was a natural. The groups I managed thrived. They boasted high engagement, lots of sales, and great cultures. Often, I found myself answering questions about tech, strategy, and TRIBE course material.
This all came so naturally to me that I didn’t realize it was actually a specialty!
When I left TRIBE to focus on my own business once again, lots of people were curious about the work I’d pursue. A surprising number of people—frustrated, overwhelmed community managers who couldn’t quite get their groups to take off like mine had—asked me to create a certification program for community managers.
But my passion was teaching business owners (like you!).
So I put out a rough course outline in one of my own groups, and so many people wanted it!
I’m not telling you this so you’ll think I’m amazing …
I’m telling you this because I want you to know I have a passion for helping other exhausted, overwhelmed business owners to turn their groups into powerful business- and profit-growing tools.
And that’s why I’m so excited about my new course!
“Sandra’s Engaged and Profitable Groups is an absolute MUST!”
“I’d been wanting to grow my Facebook Group and engage with the members in more meaningful and fun ways, but with all the other things that require my attention in my business, I just didn’t have the time to spend figuring it all out. Enter Sandra’s fabulous Engaged and Profitable Groups course, which walks you though each and every step in creating, marketing and engaging your own successful Facebook group. All I had to do was learn one step at a time, implement it, and then move on to the next step. Within just a few weeks, my engagement went from crickets to actual valuable conversations!
The best part was once I had the pieces in place and got into a rhythm, continuing to grow the group and engage with the members became super simple, and that has led to new members in my paid membership and more sales of my courses – all from just turning up the volume on my Facebook group. If you’re using Facebook, and FB Groups specifically, to grow your business, Sandra’s Engaged and Profitable Groups is an absolute MUST.”

Here’s just a taste of what you’ll discover when you enroll in Engaged and Profitable Groups:
This is where we lay the foundation for a thriving, profitable Facebook group. You’ll discover how to select options and settings for your specific goals. If you don’t have a group already, you’ll be well on your way to creating one once you finish this module. And if you do, don’t skip this module! Facebook is always adding new features, and you don’t want them all enabled by default. So listen in to find out why.
» The specifics of how to create or refine your group for maximum results, so the time, energy, and money you invest yield the results you want.
» How to define the purpose of your group, so you attract only the people who will take the actions you want them to take (for example, enroll in your membership, course, or coaching program).
» All the functionality in groups, so you can confidently navigate and manage your group, doing what you want to do quickly, easily, and frustration-free (if you’ve ever felt like tearing your hair out when trying to make something happen in your group, this is for you!).
» And more.
Prepare, Plan, and Launch Your Group
As a busy entrepreneur, the last thing you want to do is waste your precious time in the black hole that is social media, right? I get it! That’s why, during this module, I’m sharing six ways to control your time—both in the group and managing it.
» How to effectively communicate to your group’s members, so you meet their expectations and keep them happy—a happy group is a profitable group (and it reduces the number of support tickets you receive, too!).
» A system for onboarding members in free and paid groups and then keeping track of them, so everyone in your group is always up to date on payments.
» What content to include in free groups versus paid groups, including examples and when (and how) to schedule them, so your content drives the actions you want your members to take.
» How to nurture the group culture you want: maintain boundaries, get rid of members who don’t adhere to them, and ensure your group is a fun, safe place for everyone.
» How to get past your fear of launching and how to launch, so you can start to experience the fun—and profitability—possible with Facebook groups.
» And more.
Here, you’ll learn zero-cost and low-effort methods to grow your group (yessss!). I’ll share several strategies, and you can choose the ones that fit your personality and schedule. My guess is, though, that knowing they’re zero-cost and require little effort, you may want to do them all!
» Several different methods for adding your ideal clients to your group, so you’re reaching more people (without depleting your time, energy, and money resources!).
» How to choose the methods that best suit YOU so your group is a source of energy rather than an energy drain.
» Simple strategies that, once implemented, will grow your group on an ongoing basis, so you can finally stop working so hard!
» How to take advantage of Facebook’s algorithms and structure to maximize your return on time and energy invested.
» And more.
In this module, you’ll discover low-cost and higher-effort—and big return on investment—methods for growing your group. The effort will be worth it, as your group will be more engaged and profitable than ever!
» How to avoid pitfalls business owners commonly experience as they strive to grow their groups, so you can take the fast track to profitability.
» How to use specific tactics including challenges and contests to get more warm leads (potential buyers!) to join your group.
» How to take advantage of Facebook’s software so it will suggest your group to new members (potential buyers!).
» And more.

Having a group is good, but having an engaged group is great! When your group becomes a community where people interact and enjoy each other’s virtual company, members are more likely to think of you when it’s time to invest. This module is all about increasing and maintaining engagement, so your group is a hub for potential customers.
» How to get your group engaged and keep them engaged, so you build momentum that lasts through every launch and beyond.
» How to develop a posting schedule you can feel confident about in terms of its ability to engage members in precisely the right way.
» Strategies for increasing engagement and maintaining it—including gamification and rewards—so your members help you make your group a thriving, fun place to be!
» How to wake up your group if it’s gone dormant (don’t worry, it’s not dead yet!).
» And more.
Profit and Launch
Running a thriving Facebook group is fun, but we’re truly here for the money, right?! Now that you know how to grow and engage your group, it’s time to dig in. This is where you discover how to manage your group before, during, and after a launch, so you earn as much of the green as possible!In this module, you’ll discover low-cost and higher-effort—and big return on investment—methods for growing your group. The effort will be worth it, as your group will be more engaged and profitable than ever!
» How to use your group to launch your next offer, so you’re launching to a group of warm, enthusiastic buyers—reaching a greater number of people and earning greater profits (can I get a “heck, yeah”?).

» And more.
Although you’ll discover tons of time-saving strategies earlier on in the course, at some point, you may want to outsource some of the administrative tasks running a group requires. Who you hire is just as important as when you hire, and here, we’ll cover all the important details of building a team.
» Who to hire, and when, and when to work with volunteers (and when not to), so you get the help you need when you need it.
» Your role as the host and leader, so you spend your resources only on what you need to, and not on what you don’t need to!
» How to bring on colleagues to help take more off your plate and give your members a great variety of wisdom!

Here are my answers to some of the questions I hear most frequently:
Q: I’m already strapped for cash in my business. How can I justify this investment?
A: As I mentioned above, just a handful of sales of your memberships, programs, or courses will cover your investment. And you’ll make those sales so much more quickly when you know exactly how to utilize the amazing tool groups can be.
Q: I am so busy! I’m not sure I have time to go through the modules, much less implement what I learn. How can I justify this time investment?
A: I get it. I’m a business owner, too. I know how much of a time suck social media can be … but I also know proven strategies for saving time—for ensuring that the small amount of time you invest in managing your groups when you know what you’re doing pays off! What you learn in this course will save you so much time, you might even wonder how you filled it before.
Q: How much time should I set aside for this course?
A: Set aside about an hour to watch each weekly lessons, and then an hour or two each week to implement. We cover one module per week, with two weeks being implementation weeks where you won’t get any new content, but you’ll have time to catch up or implement what you’ve learned so far.
Q: I don’t have a group yet. Will this course work for me?
A: Yes! You’re in a great space: you can start your group off on the right foot from the very beginning. I’ll show you how to start your group from scratch.
Q: I have a group, but it hasn’t grown. Will this course work for me?
A: Absolutely! I’ve helped many business owners grow their groups even when they’d become stagnant, dormant, comatose, or full of crickets for months! I’ll show you how to liven up your group and I’ll explain why it stopped growing so you can avoid that in the future.
Q: I have a group, but it’s too big and out of control. Will this course work for me?
A: Yep! Groups that grow too fast or without boundaries and rules can get a little unwieldy! But I’ll show you what to do to make any necessary repairs and cultivate the kind of culture you want your members to experience.
Q: I have a group and it’s going okay, but members don’t buy from me. Can you help?
A: Yes, there are specific strategies you can use to ensure you’re targeting your ideal clients, to ensure you’re giving them what they want and need, and to encourage them to buy. I’ll show you!
“I hope you all are jumping on this fast!”
This is an amazing opportunity that you should not allow to pass by. That is an incredible opportunity to go deep on your own Facebook group and really get dialed into your best next steps for optimal growth and engagement. Your Facebook group is one of your most strategic business assets. Don’t let this opportunity slip by. Sandra is the very best person to help you learn how to best serve your audience through your various Facebook groups.
I took this course in the beta launch period in the spring and within a couple of weeks got 150 new members in my Free Facebook group just by taking action on the things Sandra shared. My original group had over 3,000 members but it was stagnant. It was hard to get people to talk or share. We’ve added over 500 new members since then and we have lots of engagement. Plus, I love the groups a whole lot more than I did in February.
Also, the course and Sandra’s expertise has helped me figure out how to manage my paid Facebook group and my free Facebook group differently so that the paid group feels special. Before Sandra’s input, I was pretty much treating them both the same, and I was confused, and so were my members.
Sandra’s course and input game me clarity so that I no longer fear that I’m doing it wrong or not serving my members well. These two Facebook groups, the free and the paid membership, are integral to my future plans for my business.

Q: Although I want a big, engaged group, I also don’t want to have to manage a large group later. Will this course work for me?
A: Yes! I’ll show you how to get volunteers to help you manage your group, or when to hire paid help if you don’t want to manage everything on your own.
Q: I’ve purchased courses in the past and never done anything with them. How will this course be different?
A: Remember, it’s my specialty to get and keep you engaged. 😉 Seriously, though, you’re not going to get results until you’ve made the decision that you’re going to take action and do things differently. I’ll do everything in my power to support you, but you have to do the work!
Q: I’m not technical. Will I be able to follow along?
A: Yes! That’s exactly what my How-To Vault is for. Although I don’t cover the tech inside the modules, the How-To Vault is made up of video lessons on how to use the technology to do each of the tasks I recommend in the modules. I take you step-by-step through the processes. As you watch, you can follow along, do the steps, and pause the videos when you need to. The only technology you need for this course is a webcam or smartphone and a photo editor (Canva is a good free option).
Q: Are there any other costs involved?
A: If you choose to run Facebook ads during this course, you’ll have to pay for that—but it’s optional! And if you don’t want to edit your own images for posting in your group, you may want to hire someone to do that.
Q: What if I have questions during the course?
A: You can always post questions in the private Facebook group, and I’ll do my best to answer them there. Also, we’ll have weekly Q&A calls throughout the course. You can send your questions ahead of time, or ask me on the call.
Q: I need to check with my spouse before I invest.
A: Of course—I understand. Ask your spouse to read this page and imagine how much more successful your business will be when you have the systems in place to make money with it … and how much less overwhelmed you’ll be when things are flowing smoothly! You’ll have so much more time to spend with your spouse, and you’ll be able to relax, knowing your group is working hard in the background to make you money.
“Best decision I ever made!!!”
“Hiring Sandra to help me with two of my launches and to grow my group, it was the best decision I ever made!!! My FB group grew from 600 to almost 3,000 in 3 weeks. We brought in 250 new members in the first launch and 221 during the second launch. Both launches brought in 5 figure months.“
