Could Something As Simple As Lightbulbs Be Holding You Back?

Today I did something I have been meaning to get done in a while!

I changed my light bulbs! Might sound boring hey….but it kinda matters when you are running a business on social media.


Some of the best content is created spur of the moment.

Which is why kitting your house out with cool white light is such a good idea.

Having to stop and set up lighting or roaming to find a good corner on an overcast day… kill!


Great idea + bad lighting often means content you don’t feel is quality.

Great idea + great lighting – BOOM. Beautiful.


This is not about being false or putting on a show.

This is about cutting through the noise and being SEEN.


Note: If you are moving house take your expensive light bulbs with you, put cheap ones back in.

How To Download Facebook Videos From Private Groups

How To Download Facebook Videos From Private Groups

Let me show you how to download Facebook videos from private groups the easy way! This is particularly handy for downloading videos which were posted BEFORE the option to save to your camera reel was implemented.

This way is also a great tool for those who are in the VA industry and need to download videos without hassling your client for the original source file.

Why should you download your videos from your private Facebook groups?

Reason 1:

If you have fantastic content posted in your groups you should ALWAYS keep a back up. There have been many cases where groups have just “disappeared” leaving all of your content lost forever.

Reason 2:

This content can be repurposed as Blog posts, Youtube videos and many other great pieces in the future. You can even have your videos transcribed with a service called Transcription Hub or Rev.

Reason 3: Specifically using this method, you can download your videos in the original quality on your desktop. While some PCs allow you to save the file directly from the browser, its often the compressed version. While some phones also allow you to do this, its then a pain having to transfer the file or bringing it across to your desktop computer through a dropbox. This way – you know it will work every time. 


It’s important to note you should never download content that you are not authorised to re-use.

This tool is designed to retrieve your own content in order to repost it elsewhere.

How To Link A Group To Your Facebook Page

Why Should You Link A Group To Your Facebook Page?

Linking your Facebook page to a group is a very simple process


What are the benefits of having a Facebook Group for your business?

Few years admins have been running groups that have a higher engagement rate than pages.

Linking your group is a great way to associate your business with your group without having to scream it from the hilltops.

As the group admin you have some authority and are often regarded as an expert in your groups niche.

You’ll have an easier time engaging with your audience in a closed setting such as a group, making one on one sales.

It takes some effort to run a group, a successful group will be overflowing with discussion. Think of a group the same way you do as content marketing, you are giving people a safe space, one to enjoy and learn or just socialise.

When we content market, we provide the audience with something they need, helps them or they enjoy – which converts to sales.


Connecting your group to your Facebook page

You will be able to post as your page. When you give valuable advice, people will be able to click through to your business page which hosts even more content and the Shop Now button.

For brands who prefer not to use personal names, this function gives the opportunity to post as the “Brand Name”. For a brand who have several staff members, this can come in handy.

  1. Go to your Business Page
  2. In the sidebar click groups
  3. Click “Link Group” in the pop up
  4. Select which Group you would like to link
  5. Repeat with any other groups you would like to link
