Have you ever joined a program that promises a lively Facebook community…
...but when you get in there it’s a wasteland?
Or worse, the feed is just a stream of ‘engagement’ posts from the group owner, desperately trying to get someone, anyone to comment and share?
Or even worse again, it's full of members who just use the group as a personal notice board to stick up their random ads.
“Join our community of 52,000 members!”
Yeah, members who never comment, share or add value.
The vast majority of Facebook membership groups are either ghost towns or low-quality spamfests.
Which is why I’ve gotta tell you -
I was browsing the Opulence Inner Circle today, and I’m just so damn proud of what we’ve built:
A real community.
I’d say our Opulence Inner Circle is one of the most lively groups in the business niche.
We share wins, we ask questions and most importantly, we give each other useful and practical solutions.
Being a member is like having your own ThinkTank or Brainstrust literally at your fingertips.
Which is pretty near invaluable, because all that big problems often need is the different perspective someone else can offer.
Case in point:
A new member was spending heaps of time managing customer enquiries over several channels (phone, email, text message, Facebook). It was eating away at his ‘work time’ and driving him a bit nuts.
So our member, let’s call him Bob, asked the group for advice.
Within an hour he had 12 useful comments from members and of course, yours truly:
And it’s not just me driving the value.
Just check out the next screenshot below - 17 people offered to give up their time to help a member out the other day.
Here’s where it starts getting really beautiful...
We support each other too. Our group is a non-judgement zone where everyone is genuinely interested in helping each other. Because we’re all in a similar place (or have been before).
I know that Coach Michael is going to bring detailed, tailored advice to Thursday’s group coaching session that’s not only going to give enormous value to the member in the spotlight, but other members will also learn new ways to navigate these sorts of problems as well.
We all learn better when we learn together!
The best part about our group?
We genuinely like meeting and hanging out with each other.
That’s harder for our members who live interstate, which is why our quarterly Business Intensives are our members’ fave times of the year.
The connections within the group are so strong that members don’t even ask me for help specifically; they ask someone else in the group who they know has the experience to answer their question even better than I can 🙂
The Opulence Inner Circle is not one of those groups where everyone is just secretly trying to plug their business (#soshady) or jump in and get advice and then disappear.
We are in there every day, having fun and learning together as we build our lifestyle businesses.
We know that the more we put in, the more we get out.
And besides, being in business can be kinda lonely, so it’s great to have a group of peers to talk to. People who are going through the same thing as you.
Our community is a big part of the reason The Opulence System™ is so powerful.
Because learning how to build a profitable, scalable and purposeful business that works without you is one thing. We can give you all the tools. But you’ve gotta pick them up and use them.
And that’s often the hardest part.
Which is where our community comes in. We champion each other. We hold each other accountable. We celebrate together. That’s not only important for helping everyone move forward, it makes being in business a lot more FUN.
And we all want a bit more fun in our lives, don’t we?
If you’d like to explore becoming a member of Opulence and joining the Inner Circle, get in touch using one of the options in my sig below.
We don’t accept everyone. In fact, we turn away easily about 80% of potential candidates. Because we are focused on keeping the right people in the group.
I’d love to see if you’re a good fit.
