6 Shocking Ways Social Media Can Be Used To Save Money

And the never-ending debate continues… what’s the best platform for saving money, websites (like this one) or social media? While both have unique advantages, there are certain situations that may compel you to choose one over the other. It all boils down to how much you want to save and what your preferred online platforms are. Turns out, you have a plethora of choices when it comes to getting great offers and saving money online. And, it's not a pick only one situation! You can get the best of all the online world has to offer!

Built-in Community

Platforms like Facebook and Reddit have incredible communities of users on them that you can share info with or simply follow along to get frugal shopping tips and tricks. One of the absolute best things about Facebook in particular is that it allows for groups. I'd be silly for me to not to mention our super supportive and kind get-outta-debt community group that I’ve built on Facebook called, Spending Fasters, and we also have a more exclusive VIP Group.

Facebook allows these groups to exist and since so many people are already on the platform it makes it easy to tap into the groups there while you’re logged on. 

I really love our Spending Fasters and VIP Group so much because of how people in the groups support each other and build each other up. Being part of a group and community help you feel less alone in the struggle to get out of debt and overcome daily money and spending obstacles.

Pro tip #1: Turn on your group notifications. By simply seeing the groups alerts come up when you log into Facebook they will help you by subtly reminding you of your goals. Therefore helping you stick to your commitment to yourself. 

Pro tip #2: When you share your helpful tips, insights, and support with others in the groups and online communities it helps to start the process of building relationships. Then, when you need help people are more likely to respond in kind.
