Are you engaged in the business of selling printers and cartridges? It is a good idea to sell these things especially since they have a high demand in this high-tech, modern world. Of course you would have to advertise your products. How else would other people know that you are selling those things? With the help of social media, you would be able to sell your printers and cartridges easily. One of the most effective social media platforms is Facebook. Here are some tips on how to use Facebook for marketing.
Posting an advertising status
The most basic thing you can do is to simply post and advertising status? Facebook allows users to post very long statuses. But your status has to be short, simple, and very creative. Your status will appear on the newsfeed of all your Facebook friends. Make sure it clearly states that you are selling your business. Take note that you can post a status with a photo attached. So look for a good photo. You can even use hashtags for your status so that people looking for printers or cartridges will easily locate your profile
Even if your status would appear on your friends’ newsfeeds, there is still that chance that they will not be able to see it. Some people never log into Facebook for a couple of days, and that is why your status might get buried deep with other recent feeds. And of course, some friends do not even check their newsfeeds at all. So it would be better if you message your friends directly and inform them about your printer and cartridge business. Direct-messaging can be effective but it can be quite annoying so message only your friends at least once.
Uploading photos to an album
You also have the option to create an album and upload your photos there. You have to upload a photo for each of your product. You can put as caption of your photo the product’s price, its specs, and other stuff that interested buyers should know. Have an album for your printers and a separate album for your cartridges. If you want, you can even have an album for each brand. What is important is that your friends get to see the actual stuff you are selling. When you take photos of your products, make sure they are well-lit.
Creating a page
There is also the option to create a Facebook page especicall if you want to reach more than just your Facebook friends. It is free to create a page for any organization, group, or business. The people who ‘likes’ your page will be the ones to which you can market your products. So the more ‘likes’ you get, the better. You can increase your number of ‘likes’ by inviting friends to like your page. You can even opt for Facebook ads – these features let your page be advertised by Facebook to people across the globe or even to certain areas of your choosing. Facebook ads might cost you but they are very effective.
All in all, if you are active on Facebook, you stand a higher chance to sell your products but remember, don’t spam as that will drive your potential customers away!
