Finding Facebook Groups for ecommerce isn't hard to do. Finding Groups that share quality content that have active power sellers willing to give back and help is. You've sure would have heard the saying “Your network is your net worth”. Well, this is why it's so important to get only the best connections.
I am going to share with you the very groups that I have been in for years and some I've only just discovered that provide massive value.
These groups are the ones I keep coming back to time and again and others that have piqued my curiosity.
Selling on Shopify: 10 Facebook Groups for Ecommerce You Need to Follow
The groups are in no particular order. The only way you'll know if a group is for you is by joining and becoming active. The more you give, the more you get. It is up to you to learn who the people are in the group that you should be listening to. Remember, everyone has an opinion, not everyone is successful.
With that being said. UNLESS you have experience and have runs on the board sharing your advice should be done sparingly. The blind leading the blind helps no one.
One of my favourites. Clayton Denize started this group some time ago and it is massive. The group is filled with first timers (as the name suggests) and powersellers that have been in the industry for years.
It is for this reason the group is as successful as it is. The industry giants are hands on with helping the Newbies succeed. I have had a couple of chats with David Whiteside Thompson about the direction they are headed with Shopify Newbies and it's positive.
They have a lot of content with tons of interviews planned in the future to ensure quality education is maintained in the group.
This is another massive group that was started by Jon Kennedy from Heycarson. Heycarson/Storetasker is made up of a bunch of Shopify Experts that help you with the tasks within your store.
The group however is much like any other. Designed to help entrepreneurs get a leg up and start making sales with a sustainable brand. I haven't personally heard of most of the people in this group (which doesn't mean there aren't big players in there).
There are some communities you just love to be a part of. ShineOn Sellers is that place for me as a lot of the people in there I have known for years. Teespring News used to be the group full of the guys that give back. Now it's ShineOn Sellers. You should seriously consider being a part of this group.
It may not be as big as some but it is certainly packed full of quality content.
Reading the terms and conditions of this group is daunting. The good news however is that Evan and Steve Tan have created a big group packed full of the ecommerce movers and shakers you need to follow.
These boys have created one of Shopify's biggest success stories, often sharing their hints and tips for your own success.
This is where it all began for me. Teespring News was created by the old crew that I came to love. Vince, Bridget, John, Scott and a couple of others were the legends that used to get around in this group. It was fun, exciting and full of quality content.
I haven't had a big focus on Teespring for a while now. My business partner however still actively sells constantly cracking new winners. Teespring has evolved, with it they've brought in new products and features that sellers love.
While the group doesn't have the people I once knew, it is filled with quality powersellers that are the veterans of the Print on Demand space.
I can't give you much insight into this group. Make sure you jump in (I have) and get to know the folks that are sharing the quality info.
Nick Peroni has been around for years. Whilst I don't know him personally the fact he's been around for so long goes to show he knows a thing or two.
He does offer 100% free training so you could find some quality information in amongst his course.
I love the personality that Mike puts into his group as you can see by the rules he's posted…

Another legend I have know for years. I met Matt Stefanik (honestly, have you met a better looking man?) when we were speaking at the Fabcon Conference in London in 2015. He is the founder of Selling on Shopify and more notably Funnel Buildr.
Selling on Shopify is another group filled with powersellers that go above and beyond their call of duty in helping others. You'd be silly not to join.
Well this one kinda goes without saying. Storehacks as you should know has been created for powersellers to share their best practises in helping you create customer centric, highly profitable stores!
