Social media groups are the IN thing. Right now, they're pretty much everywhere you look and they can be incredibly valuable to you and your business. Don't forget, you don't want your group full of just anyone, you want your core ideal clients - so be sure you're growing it with the right people!
Go through your connections and personally invite anyone you feel would be a good fit.
Make sure you share your group on all social media platforms daily.
Be sure to share a freebie that you have on all your social media platforms daily.
Run a competition (this can grow your group and your list at the same time).
Run a free training of some kind (again this can grow your group and list!)
Remember to include your group on thank you pages for any freebies you have.
Include your freebie link or group link in relevant places (like Instagram bio, Facebook cover photo, etc).
Host some guest experts (again this can grow your group and list).
Write a weekly blog and make sure your CTA is either a freebie or group.
Put your group and freebie on your homepage.
Host a challenge, create a new video series - basically create something new to give free.
If you're helping someone and you feel your freebie or group would benefit them then let them know.
Encourage others on your mailing list or in your group to share it.
Run ads (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.).
Of course, there are plenty of other things you can do BUT if you're currently not growing or building your list/group daily/weekly these are definitely some tips to get you started.
*By the way - DO NOT randomly add people to your mailing list and don't randomly add people to your Facebook group either, unless you have permission or invite them privately don't just add people without their permission!
