Facebook Marketplace can expand your business.
Are you using social media marketing for your business? Small business owners have found a new tool for growing their business using Facebook marketing. Their ecommerce platform, Facebook Marketplace, makes it simple to sell and buy, especially for those using mobile devices.
Posting is Easy
Just take a photo of the item you would like to sell, add it to Facebook, enter the description of the product, the price, confirm the location and the category and then post it. The Marketplace then automatically shows the offers available in your area to potential customers.
The platform uses past browsing history to optimize the user's search.
The Marketplace allows buyers and sellers to interact with one another, making it simply to cultivate business relationships with potential customers. This is an opportunity for your business to build trust with your customers.
Facebook allows you to upload ten photos per listing. Take advantage and use all ten!
Most businesses are strapped for time. By enabling you to post product pictures and descriptions in real-time inside the app itself, businesses can post products quickly and conveniently.
Helps Build Up Rapport with the Local Community
As Marketplace shows items within a local vicinity, businesses can use the platform to build rapport and make connections with the local community.
Allows Buyers to Message Sellers Directly
Purchasing arrangements can be worked out with ease on Marketplace as the buyers can message sellers directly.
Takes No Cut from Sales
Unlike the likes of eBay and Etsy, Facebook doesn’t take any cut of the profits on Marketplace, meaning there’s more money in your business’s pocket.
Allows You to Reach Out to Billions of Users
With around 1.86 billion monthly users, by using Facebook Marketplace you will give your products exposure to potentially millions of users around the world.
