How long have you been a group owner, and what made you want to start your group? I actually made another group prior to The Lighthouse Cafe, in 2007, however through time, it became less and less visited, so I closed it. I started The Lighthouse Cafe in February, and although it's endured some slow times, and struggles, we have remained a close knit group, and recently started growing again.I wanted a group that shared everyday life, making friends, sharing our love of coffee, and hobbies.
What are your top three tips for someone just starting a group? Make sure it's a topic close to your heart,Have a list of ready made posts that will capture attention,ask members to share things about themselves in the beginning.
What things do you think you did to get your group on the Rising Stars list? Answer members posts and replies personally, and be geniune with interacting with them.
What do you think your members take away from their group experience while they are a part of your group? I feel that my members are comfortable and look at our group as a place to come to when they need to do something special for themselves.
Anything else you would like to share with us? Most of all, I have a geniune concern for my members, and hope that one day, some of us might meet in person.
