  • You need to have lots of drama in your post lol..

  • Have you visited The group resource center in the red links? Lots of great ideas there. You don't 'need' drama but you do need to have fresh content. You will also need to promote constantly because a group is only as good as it's members. You just need to find a niche and fill it. A great admin team and clear guidelines also helps.

  • Check out the Group Resource Center. Lots of good information there by those who have been there before.

  • I left a group that I joined. Was there for awhile and wasn't growing & wasn't very active at all so I left.

  • Running a group is hard. Try doing a daily journal post and advertising your group everywhere on CM that you're allowed to. Contact old members and invite them back. Start the inactivity filter and let them know that they will be removed for inactivity. Try a different invitation and set out a lot of them.
