How To Grow Your Email List From Facebook Group Using Groupboss And MailerLite

Jan 07, 2021

Facebook group is a good source of generating unlimited leads. When a new member wants to join your Facebook group, you can ask them up to three questions as an admin. Many group admins ask for the email address in one of the three questions. And the new members generally feel good to put their email address to get some value from the Facebook group admins/moderators. Usually, a Facebook group admin collects the answers to those questions in a google sheet/ excel sheet by manual copy-pasting. And this is a time-consuming process.

If you have a Facebook group and want to collect all the leads from that group in your MailerLite account, you can easily do that using a Facebook group automation tool named Groupboss.

What is Groupboss
Groupboss helps Facebook group admins to manage and get unlimited leads from their Facebook groups, send them emails via their favorite auto-responder, and view all group members’ in-depth data in a single place.


How to send emails to MailerLite from a Facebook group
With a single click, you can send the emails from your Facebook group to MailerLite provided that you have asked for the email address in one of the three questions and the member has given the email.
By using Groupboss, you can collect the emails in your MailerLite account.
