    Do you remember our previous post about Facebook groups for SEOs? It’s time to unveil some more active communities where you can discuss all things marketing.

    Facebook groups provide an excellent source of knowledge and practical advice for marketing professionals. But how many times have you joined a marketing-related group, only to have your news feed spammed with posts like this? -

    Example of a spammy post in a marketing-related Facebook group.

    Probably more times than you can remember, right?

    Yup, me too. A lot of Facebook groups for marketers seem to be nothing more than billboards for low-quality service offers and have no real activity from members.

    So, for this post, I vetted over 50 Facebook marketing groups and hand-picked the most engaging and helpful ones for marketers to join.

    As with the previous list, I only included digital marketing-related groups that have a:

    • Significant number of members;
    • High level of community engagement;
    • No-spam policy.

    If you want to join any of the groups, don’t forget that many are closed. You will be asked to answer a few questions about your goals beforehand. And no spam, please!

    Editor’s Note

    We already mentioned some great marketing communities in our post on Facebook groups for SEOs. Thus, we didn’t include them here. In particular, Digital Marketing Questions, Local Client Takeover, and our group, Ahrefs Insider, are all well worth joining.

    The group started off as an offline meetup for digital marketers, which then turned into an online community.

    For a growing industry like digital marketing, the group owners felt the need to bring together industry folks who would ‘learn, share and grow’ together. Despite one of the groups original objectives to promote the owner’s venture (Digital Defynd), it’s now a vibrant community packed with helpful posts.

    The group is spam-free. All unwanted promotions, spammy messages, and subtle marketing attempts are swiftly dealt with by the group admins and moderators, who keep a close eye on things. There’s no ‘leader’ around here: everybody tries to help everybody, thus helping it stay an open-ended network. There are a lot of regular Q&As, polls, discussions, and interview series. All that holds things together and helps the group to thrive.

And four books were put together from the content posted in the group.

    The admins vet all user posts before publishing them. That way, when content does get posted, members are more likely to check out what it is since they know it will be valuable. There are also giveaways every month.
