Sending Messages to Several Facebook Group Admins at Once
If you’re planning to take a step forward in your Facebook marketing campaign, you must not disregard the importance of Facebook groups. While Facebook ads are a powerful strategy to reach new customers, not every company (specially new businesses) has the resources to follow such a path. Plus setting up a Facebook ads marketing campaign could be not only costly but time-consuming. If your budget is limited and your time short, PhoneBot puts at your disposal the right tool to reach out Facebook group admins and increase your brand’s exposure.
Despite the relentless expansion of other social media, Facebook hasn’t lost its influence in the worldwide web. It is still the most popular social media as of 2021, and it’s the main platform for every marketing campaign. With around 28.5 billion monthly active users, Facebook is the perfect ally to expand a brand’s presence and, as a result, increase its customer base. According to statistics, a Facebook ad could easily reach 2.1 billion people. That sole number explains why the platform counted around 100 million advertisers in the third quarter of 2020.
However, if your budget doesn’t allow you to plan a Facebook ad marketing campaign, you can still take advantage of the different features Facebook offers to reach potential leads.
Facebook Groups Potential
As you may already know, Facebook groups are communities built around a common interest. From a popular actor to a traditional African dish, there are Facebook groups for everything. The enormous audiences Facebook groups congregate are not to take for granted. Targeting the right group will allow you to reach people that are potentially interested in what you’re offering.
Your brand can certainly benefit from this big exposure. However, posting on different groups to promote your product or service may not be the right way to go. Group admins may immediately kick you out of the group. Advertising is not always welcome in certain groups. You could nonetheless find a way to reach all those potential leads by seducing the group admins first. Having a group admin as a spokesperson will surely boost your presence and get you some great leads.
A group admin on your side is an open door to the members of the group. Imagine how many potential customers you will gain. The question that raises now is how to contact all those group admins without spending hours writing to them one by one. This is where PhoneBot comes to save the day: one click and you will reach all those groups admins at once.
1. Build a List of Targeted Groups
Before getting your hands on the tool, you need to find your targets, which is to say, some groups related to your niche or activity. To do this, you will just need to perform a simple Facebook search. This part could be tedious, but is necessary to provide PhoneBot strategic targets.
Let’s imagine you’re in the coffee grains business. You insert “coffee” as your keyword and then filter the results by groups.
There are millions of Facebook groups with thousands of members. You need to look for groups with an important subscriber base. For instance, the group in the picture below (148,200 members) could be a potential target.
Once you’ve found your targeted groups, copy and paste their URL in a Google spreadsheet. Don’t forget to join them, otherwise you may not be able to contact their admins.
2. How to Send Thousands of Messages to Facebook Users Without Being Blocked?
2.1 Using an Old Facebook Account
If you create several fake Facebook accounts in order to scale your mass messaging campaign, Facebook won’t take long to remove your brand new accounts if it notices a suspicious amount of messages sent daily.
For some years now, Facebook and other platforms have been strongly fighting against fake users. When you create a new Facebook account, Facebook puts your new account in some kind of “box”. We will call it the “Suspicious Account box”.
Facebook will study the behavior of your account to see if it is a robot or someone trying to spam or promote something massively.
2.2 Infiltration Period for New Accounts
We are sorry to tell you this, but you will have to wait at least 3 months before mass messaging people from your new Facebook account. However, it’s not about creating a fake account and waiting idly for 3 months. You must make it look like a normal human account by publishing regular posts, liking other users’ posts, commenting, inviting a few people, and performing all the simple actions a normal human would do. Let’s call this stage the “infiltration”.
It will also mean completing all the profiles of your fake accounts. Giving each of them a personality so as to resemble a real human being (profile picture, bio, birthdate, etc.).
2.3 The Message Limit per Day
There’s no real consensus on this restriction, but it may seem that Facebook won’t allow any account to send more than 30 direct messages to other people. Some accounts may send 30 messages and don’t get flagged, whereas others may get an immediate warning. We are sure the only ones authorized to break this rule are Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook managers.
A perfect way to dodge this limitation is to use several Facebook accounts.
To be as discreet as possible, you will have to send 20 messages maximum per day. If your goal is to send 1000 messages per day (to a 1000 people), you will need around 50 Facebook accounts.
3. Configure PhoneBot to Mass Contact Group Admins on Facebook
3.1 Download and Install PhoneBot on Your Computer

Our community forum, the live chat, and our VIP ticket support are at your disposal to help you whenever necessary.

3.2 Configure the “Send Message to Facebook Group Admins” Task on PhoneBot
Once you have downloaded, installed and correctly activated the PhoneBot software on your computer, you need to create a campaign and configure the desired task.
- On the PhoneBot dashboard, create a campaign and name it.
You can pick any name you want. Remember that a campaign is composed of one or several tasks.
- Then choose the desired task. In this case, select “Facebook Group Admins” under Influencers.
Another way to access the task is by using the left menu. There you will find all the tasks sorted by categories and platforms.
Make sure to choose the right task. If you accidentally click on the wrong one, you can unselect it at any time.
THE MESSAGE DAILY LIMIT
Once you land on the task page, you can start configuring all the details of the specific task.
As mentioned before, the message limit per day is a detail that should never be disregarded. We strongly recommend keeping to the PhoneBot limit of 15 messages per day.
There are two different methods to provide your targets.
The easiest and fastest way consists in a Google spreadsheet containing a list of keywords related to your niche. Just copy and paste the URL of the spreadsheet in the corresponding field. PhoneBot will then search for Facebook groups with your keywords. Moreover, you can filter the targeted groups by number of members. Keep in mind that the more members participating in a group, the more potential customers you could attract.
The most accurate way is the one we covered before. That is to say, a Google spreadsheet with the URLs of the targeted Facebook groups. Just copy and paste the URL of the aforementioned spreadsheet in the corresponding field. In this case you don’t need to specify a minimum number of members.
Next choose the kind of message you prefer. PhoneBot proposes two types of messages: text and voice messages. In either case, you must set a specific series (until reply or without interruption). Keep in mind that you can write up to 4 messages.
If you want to send just one message, fill in the first text field. To send only two, complete the first and second text fields, and so forth.
For further and more detailed information regarding the message customization, please refer to this tutorial.
ENABLE TASK AND CAMPAIGN
Once you’ve created your messages, do not forget to save your configuration and enable your task.
Then, enable your campaign on the Campaigns page.
4. Run PhoneBot to Mass Contact Group Admins on Facebook
To execute the campaigns, you need to use the PhoneBot software already installed on your Computer.
You can run your tasks from any of the first two tabs of the PhoneBot software (see image below). The first tab enables you to execute your whole campaign, which is to say, all the tasks configured in a particular campaign; whereas the second tab allows you to execute one specific task from a campaign. Make sure to choose the right campaign and device. Then just click on “Run”.
For further and more detailed information on the campaign and task execution, please refer to this detailed tutorial.
5. How to Scale PhoneBot? How to Send 1000 Messages per Day to Facebook Users?
There are 2 possibilities to increase the number of messages per day :
- Buying Another PhoneBot License
As explained before, you need 50 accounts to send 1000 messages per day. Our Gold license allows you to connect up to 10 smartphones. That means you can automate 10 Facebook accounts. You will need to buy 5 Gold licenses to reach 50 Facebook accounts. It also means you will need 5 computers, as you can’t connect more than 10 smartphones per computer.
- Developing an Affiliate Network
If you create an affiliate program for your products or services, you will work with affiliates. You can ask them to invest in a PhoneBot Bronze license (for 1 smartphone) in order to automate their work, or you can buy them the license. Imagine you manage to hire 100 affiliates that will automate the mass messaging task to promote your business. That’s what rapid growth looks like!
Facebook groups are a fantastic way to gain more exposure and increase your client base. With PhoneBot you can reach group admins and get access to all the group’s members. Now you are all set to boost your Facebook marketing campaign.
