Social networks have become a big marketing tool that every business needs. The truth is that I had no idea that you could sell clothes on Facebook. Of course, I knew that you could promote your business on Facebook; I didn’t know you could sell your merchandise on Facebook.
All I thought Facebook was for is just to connect with family and friends. I was so excited when I found out that Facebook is a huge tool for business people. However before you can successfully sell your clothes on Facebook, there are some things you should know.
To help you with selling clothes on Facebook, I decided to give you some tips that you should know. So let’s get started.
- Join some Facebook groups. There are thousands of groups on Facebook that you can join. But when I talk about “join some Facebook groups,” what I mean is that you should join some groups that are important to your business. There are different groups on Facebook that serves different purposes, so you have to join a group that goes in line with your purpose (selling clothes).
- Read the group rules carefully. One big mistake you can make in a Facebook group is not reading the group rules. Every group has its administrator and rules. You must make sure that when you join a group, you should make sure that you read the group rule step by step and not violate any of the rules. Violation of the rules might get you kicked out of the group; and I am sure that you don’t want to get kicked out.
- Study and observe well. When you join a group, you should study the group well and observe how they do their things. You should observe how other people are posting before you start posting. When you do this, you would be able to avoid some mistakes. You will also have an idea the format that works well for posting, the typical prices for clothes, and how the sellers estimate shipping. After you have gotten the trend, you can start posting. However, you should make sure that you get the idea of what the typical prices are, so as not to over-price your clothing items.
- Sign up for a PayPal account. After all the marketing, you need a PayPal account for payment. The good thing about PayPal is that they charge only a small fee on every sale, and the buyer gets insurance protection to cover any damage.
