4000 MEMBERS IN SFT GROUP ON FACEBOOK!

Today is a memorable day for Successful Freelance Translators group. We finally reached 4000 members!

SFT group was established to help freelance translators become better entrepreneurs, find new clients and learn more about the specific nature of online business. Since the first day (26th of March 2016) we have been creating a community of translators ready to help each other with sound advice; thanks to the efforts of our members the group was nominated for Community Choice Awards 2017.

During the last several months we have been conducting various free promotions events for SFT members and a challenge (Facebook Business Page Development) that is still on. You can find Challenge posts here:

Part 1: Development and Promotion of Facebook Business Page for Translators

Part 2: Facebook Page General Settings

Part 3 Facebook Page Settings (continued)

It is easier to see how much we have done in figures, therefore, let’s take a look at group statistics.
