Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 16 comments

Creating epic blog posts, podcast episodes, and websites isn’t the hard part of running an online business…

228 QuoteIt’s knowing what kind of content is going to be most useful and valuable to your audience.

And if anyone knows this better, it’s Jill & Josh from Screw The 9 To 5.

Together, they’ve built a system around their Facebook Group that acts as the top part of their funnel.

While most people point everything back to their email list or website (which is still a piece of their funnel), they’ve grown a following in a place where their audience can interact, network, and grow as a unit.

Jill will make you look at community centers like Facebook Groups in a completely different light, and she shares the exact blueprint they’re using right now with their audience.
