Gluten Free Edmonton Support Group on Facebook

Recently, I have been thinking about what's next with Gluten Free Edmonton?  I have been doing this for 8 years already.

What can I do next to get people engaged?

I'm already on Facebook, Twitter and more recently trying to grow an Instagram following.

I would love to get on YouTube, do shopping tours, demo products etc.  But really, I have a full time job already leading a national healthcare organizations digital experience.  I just don't have the time, because after work, I love spending time with my family.

So now what?  How do I grow our community?  Which got me thinking.  I know Facebook is not for everyone, but it is still THE place for community.  More so than Twitter and Instagram.  The Facebook Group features are amazing for connecting others.

I notice more and more people posting questions on our Gluten Free Edmonton Facebook page.  Unfortunately, Facebook doesn't care for that, so it doesn't highlight other peoples posts unless I share it, because at the end of the day Facebook really just wants ad dollars to boost a post shared by a Page.

Which brings us to groups!  A place where everyone can post and be heard.  A place where each person can set their notifications and not miss a thing.  A place to share with a us an amazing gluten free product they found, or ask a question about where to find a product.  A place where we can can interact with everyone in different ways.  I place where we can just simply help someone in our community that just needs a helping hand.

There are so many awesome things that can be done with a Facebook Group.  I'm just starting with the basics and will see where it goes.

So come on in!  Join the new Gluten Free Edmonton Support Group on Facebook!
