How about facebook Groups Engagement :
if you are active on groups with spamy links, its better to stay away and choose private groups, start adding value by posting good content, answering questions, you continusely add massive value each day, you will gain trust from more members. afterwards you start adding links. what i like about private FB groups they have targeted audience, if you don't show something that is new and unique then nobody follows you.
When there is value, there is an engagement :
Write a good comment and build a long term partnership, this will be easier for you to post.
if you have a story, share it with the group members, show them tools, technologies and startegies you used to get there. Keep helping and adding more value, you wills see results.
Building loyal fans and followers is based on content and value you share. and engagement should be based on answering questions, writing good comments and shares. its better to have 100 targeted Followers instead of 1000 fake followers. who are not interested in your stuff.
