We’re more than a year into the pandemic and our lives have no doubt changed and shifted. One of the things many of us realized is that working remotely is the way to go and that businesses need to have a solid plan to operate online if they want to stay afloat.
Many people also had to think of new ways to earn a living, and one of the more popular options was to sell online. But what if you don’t have a website and only have a Facebook account? Can you sell on Facebook without a website? The quick answer is yes. But here I’ll show you different ways to do so.
After posting on your personal page and not seeing a lot of returns, you may want to try listing an ad on Facebook Marketplace. You’ll be surprised at how many people actually use this feature on the social media app! You just need to take nice photos of your products and use the right tags so your ad gets the eyeballs it needs.
There are lots of buy and sell groups on Facebook too. The key is finding one that isn’t saturated with only sellers and has a good number of people who are actually looking to buy products.
This method has skyrocketed in popularity in the past year. You’ll find all kinds of shops doing live selling — from clothes to food items! This will work great if you love interacting with people and can hold an audience. Just make sure your lighting is good so your potential customers can see your products clearly!
You can now set up your own shop and sell on Facebook without a website. Just make sure you have a Facebook page! Here‘s how to do it step-by-step.
Facebook Page + ads
This one is the method we tried for our clothing store. We set up a Facebook page and posted our products as regular photos and then made ads for those photos! The method was the one that helped us earn back our capital and reinvest in our little business.
There truly are a lot of ways to sell on Facebook without a website. It’s just a matter of finding out which one is best to tap the audience you want to cater to.
