Let’s now talk about how to expand your reach and easily get into more groups and communities that are in the same niche as you are. This will help you find more places where you can promote your business or product and find people that are interested in what you have to offer.
We will do a setup of the following tools: Finder, Joiner, Unjoiner, and Ignore. They are available for Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn profiles.
Let’s head over to the Tools tab and select a Facebook profile for this tutorial. Now you will be able to see all the tools available for Facebook profiles, as you can see there are a lot of them, each with its own useful function.
Setting up the Finder Tool
The first thing you will notice on the Finder Tab is that it has 2 sub-tabs. You can either search for groups or pages. They are both similar in usage and intent so let’s set up the Group Finder tool and we’ll talk about the page finder one really quick at the end.
You can search for groups in one of the 3 provided ways:
- Extract from Keywords – you will use this to find groups based on your keywords. It has two input fields, in the first one you add the keywords that you want to find groups for. In the second one, you enter “exclude keywords” – if these keywords are present in the group name then that group will be skipped. You will notice when doing searches that Facebook doesn’t easily give you the best groups first, so you will have to make sure to add plenty of similar keywords for your niche and also plenty of negative keywords in order to be able to find the groups you need.
- Extract from Local Sale or Local groups – based on the location of your IP, JARVEE will go and extract local groups for you, there’s nothing much to do here, just click the button and wait for it to finish.
- Extract from URLs – Facebook has a very neat search graph feature that you can use to better find what you need. If you search for something like “groups joined by people who like Coca-Cola” it will create a URL for you with exactly that search, use that URL here to extract groups that fit your criteria.
Next, you have the Group Filters. You set these up here so can you further drill down and find exactly the groups you need. You can filter groups based on their size, on the language they use and if they are open or not. Once you choose the setting here, as well you’ll have to scroll up and extract the groups.
For this example, let’s find only English groups that have more than 500 members and are open. Now let’s scroll up a little and add a few keywords. And after that click the “Extract Groups” button.
Once JARVEE finishes finding the groups according to your specifications it will list them in the table below.
Now you can go through the groups it found, and you will see that some contain words that don’t really fit your niche and others contain synonyms. You can now do a new search, use some of the extra words you found to add in the search box and also use some of the negative words you found.
We won’t do a new search now though, as you already know the process. Just select a few groups and send them to the Joiner tool then select a few more groups and send them to the Ignore list as well, we will tell you about this later.
A few words about the Page Finder Tool
It works pretty much the same as the group finder one; you configure your settings, add keywords and negative keywords and it finds pages for you. You will not be able to “join” these pages as there’s no such Facebook feature, however, you can use them any number of ways:
- monitor your competition
- niche research
- when looking for high-quality posts that could work good on your pages as well
- to send them to the Comment and Like too and comment or like on them
- to send them to the contact members tool to contact people on those pages
- to add them as other pages in order to post on them (some allow visitor posts)
Setting up the Joiner Tool
This tool will join the groups you found with the Finder Tool automatically. At the top you will notice the settings for this tool they are split into 2 sections:
- Run timers – where you configure how often the tool runs and in which days of the week
- Joiner Settings – where you configure how many groups it can join per day and a few other useful settings like “cancel pending group join” after X number of days. 95 maximum groups to join per day is a little high here if your account is new so let’s set this up to join 10-15 groups.
Underneath the timers and settings section, the table where the groups waiting to be joined were sent. You will notice the same groups that we sent from the Finder tool here. You can select them, remove them from the list or use the advanced view for easier work on this list of groups. Make sure only the groups that you want to join are here and not random ones.
Once you’re ready with the settings, just go back at the top of the tool and start it. It should start joining the groups you specified. Once it joined a group, that group will be added to the last table of this page. The join process is over, however, some groups will require an admin to approve you to the group so you will see the status here if you were approved or not.
There’s nothing more to it, you can leave the tool running even if there are no more groups to join and any time you send more groups here it will join them automatically without you ever needing to touch this tool again.
Setting up the Unjoiner Tool
This tool is used when you want to quickly unjoin some of your groups. Maybe you want to change niches or just decided using Facebook groups isn’t for you and don’t want all the notifications and noise they create.
The interface looks pretty much the same as the one in the Joiner Tool, with most of the same settings and tables. You send groups here, set how many you want to unjoin per day and delays between the unjoins and start the tool. It will do everything for you.
The only unanswered question you should have here is: How do I actually send groups here?
In order to answer this, we will have to dig a little deeper into JARVEE’s interface and where it shows certain data. So, go to the Social Profiles tab and click on the profile that you were using for the tools. You will notice it has several sub-tabs, click on the second one named Groups.
Here you will find a list of all the groups your account is into with different details for each of the groups like the number of users, tags (if any) and some actions you can take. As you can see, one of the actions is “send to unjoiner” so if you want to unjoin specific groups you can do that easily from here.
In case you want to unjoin all your groups at once, a bigger portion of them, select the ones you want to unjoin and click on “execute actions on selected items” and choose “send selected to unjoiner”
If you have the tool running, the groups you no longer want to be into will be unjoined. It’s that easy.
Setting up the Ignore Tool
This is not actually a tool, but rather a list of the groups you don’t want to interact with. If a group is on the Ignore list it will never be shown inside JARVEE, not when you search for it, not even if you’re a member and want to post to it.
You can send here both:
- Groups that you’re into but don’t want to use with JARVEE, like personal or family groups
- Groups that you’re not into but want to avoid for some reason.
You can send groups here from the Groups page that we talked about earlier or you can send them from the Finder tool so JARVEE doesn’t show them ever again, not in the search results or anywhere else.
Wrapping it up
This is it for this tutorial, you now know how to find new groups, communities or pages that are in your niche and that can help you reach more targeted people.
