How to grow your group on Peanut

Peanut groups

When it comes to boosting your group on Peanut and encouraging other women to join, these tried-and-tested methods always work.

1. Spread the word on social

Sharing your group across your social media channels is a great way to encourage people to join. From Facebook and Twitter to WhatsApp and LinkedIn, we have some handy in-app tools to help you get started. Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of your group, and you’ll see a whole host of options to get sharing.

But don’t just share your link, share your story! Tell people why you started the group, how it’ll be valuable to them, and why they should join. Hey, you could even send your link to influencers or small business that align with your group values to see if they’d be interested in sharing it too.

2. Promote on Peanut

It goes without saying, but posting about your group on Peanut guarantees you new members. When it comes to where on Peanut, try promoting in other groups, group chats, topics, or simply bring it up in conversation with your connections. Once they click through, make sure you’ve got a great post ready and waiting that explains exactly what your group is for.

3. Keep things busy

No one wants to join an empty group! Keep things engaging and up-to-date by starting a new discussion each day, and always keep a close eye on your notifications and replies. Stuck for ideas? Try asking questions, tagging friends, sharing advice, and making things more interactive through polls, images, videos, and gifs. A viral meme never hurt anyone, either!

4. Links, links, and more links

Another great way of encouraging other women to join is including the link to your group wherever you can. Think: your social media bios, email signature, newsletters, and more. Wherever you think might be useful, place it. You never know who might join!
