White Bottom Border

So you want to launch a new membership {congrats}, and it's time to build a FB group to bring together your founding members.

Sure, you could whip a group up in 3 clicks, add a cover photo of you looking off into the distance and cross your fingers it works out, but you're the kind of business owner that likes to do things right, from day one.

You’re intentional, and you know that community is going to be super important for retention.

“Members come for the content,
and stay for the community.”

At the same time, you know that community isn’t your speciality.
