Audio review

What is Group Leads?

Group Leads is a browser extension that helps you collect leads and automate your Facebook groups’ management.

This extension will work on Google Chrome & Mozilla Firefox.

This browser add-on comes in English & Mandarin.

Why use Group Leads to manage FB groups?

We all know that Facebook Groups are a great way to monetize and make money for your business.

As a FB group admin, you can set Facebook group questions used to screen new member requests.

When used this section wisely, you can collect a lot of valuable data.

For example, see my Facebook group questions sample, which I use for “Alston’s Digital Group.

Some of the data ideas on how you can use these screening questions:

  • Direct feedback about your business
  • Collect leads data including name, email, location, workplace & more.
  • Ask whether member agrees to the rules
  • To qualify members who fit specific criteria
  • and more.

You can do all the above for free within the Facebook platform.

You might ask, then why do we need a Group Leads extension?

The main reason is Facebook allows this option to exist within FB groups, but it does not allow us to save data.

So as soon as you either click “Approve” or “Decline” in the “Member requests,” the answers and data of users submitted are LOST FOREVER.

This why an extension like Group Leads is useful.

It saves the data to Google spreadsheets, sends it to your favorite autoresponders, and store it in the Group Leads app dashboard.

However, that’s not all.

It also provides you more advanced functionalities to automate your group management functions. Such as:

  • Automatic group member approval based on the conditions you set.
  • Automatically send a welcome message to new group members.
  • Auto decline member requests based on the conditions you set.
  • Automatically send messages to members who get declined.
  • Automatically tag all the new members to a welcome post.
