  • Has Facebook proved to be a good selling tool for you ?

    I have recently put products on my FB page, so that people can buy direct from there, rather than being directed to my Website for sales. I just wanted to know if your FB page has products for sale and if it has proved as successful as you were anticipating ?

    Only have one item on there, keep forgetting tbh. Not had any sales and not heard of anyone who has either but it can all help to drive traffic and free so maybe worth the effort.

        Hi,

        To be honest I don't think I would ever purchase directly from a facebook page. Knowing how facebook has had its security issues in the past I would be too worried that their would be issues around the purchase...I would much rather be directed to the sellers website and buy from there.

          I have a shop on there and have never sold a thing. But it has led to a couple of commissions and I regularly direct people to my website from there. As Caroline says, it's free, so what the heck.

            I have only set up my fb page recently, and I found it good to help get me noticed but to be honest, I haven't really used it is a platform for sales yet.

              I have a fb page and its been there a week and I have had 5 orders and that last night and today. I have a link to my folksy shop on there, rather than buying it from fb.

                I too have just set up my facebook page and have had a few orders come from it already too! I think its more useful for networking and for commissions from friends etc but am delighted to have taken a good few orders already. It is working well for me whilst I organise my folksy shop etc so I am a firm convert!

                  I've had my FB page up for a few weeks now and although I've had lots of positive feedback and got lots of likers I've made no sales from it. Mind you not sold on Folksy either and do know others that do all their selling through their FB page so I think it works for some.

                    Facebook sends a lot of traffic to my website, but I've not tried to sell directly on Facebook yet. Let us know how it goes if you decide to try it.

                      I have a facebook page - mainly to keep folk updated with products and how the business is doing. I dont think I would ever sell through it though - mainly due to the added time it would take to keep that, my website and folksy shop (which is very bare at the moment) up to date. A very useful tool for spreading the word though

                        I have a face book page and with a link to my folksy shop. I do get a lot of traffic from it so I guess some of it becomes sales! I have made direct sales and had commisions from fb too.
                        I just try to be interesting and not just shout out at folk that I've listed something else in my shop!

                          Hiya I've just started out.

                          I don't have a website but I have had several commissions from my FB page (not a shop though). It hasn't been running long and the commissions have been generated through my links on Netmums website forums. My FB page was to set up to see what interest was generated, with a view to a Folksy shop. My sister has a website for her vintage inspired tiaras but uses FB and Twitter to update and add some personality to it all. She says it generates traffic to her site.
