Starting up a business is not easy. You're gonna go through bumps. A lot of it. Sometimes, there's an elephant in the middle of the road, blocking the way. Some other time, there's UFO just dropping off out of no where just to make sure you can't move ahead. Sometimes, you might feel that the whole universe conspires against you, to make sure that you will fail. We experienced all these first hand. All these made our motivation to help entrepreneurs, small online sellers clearer and even stronger. We've been there, in the pain, struggling to get by. Business is hard, managing and setting it up, shouldn't be. In fact, we want it to be the easiest part in your whole business process. We want to make sure that setting up your online shop is like walking the dog in the park. We want to make it easy so that later on you don't even have to think about marketing it, we'll even do that for you.

We'll go through the pain, so you don't have to. We've been there, and trust me, it wasn't nice.

Selling on Facebook - Create an Organic Post

So you've started your e-store on Facebook or are thinking to start one. The biggest question of all is, 'How to reach your target audience?' We've summed up a simple guide on how to make use of Facebook's readily available tools and strategies for you to achieve this

Create an Organic Post

Create an organic Facebook post that announces your product to your Fans. But you must do this with advertising in mind, instead of just posting an image of your product and the price

Here are some tips to be mindful of:

  • Create a new post by sharing a link to your product page
  • Select a thumbnail image or upload an image for the post that is high in quality and interesting 
  • Make sure the image satisfies the 20% text rule
  • Create a copy that gets to the point quickly 
  • Insert your call to action within the first 90 characters of the copy

Here's a sample:

Selecting an image (ideal width: 520 x 292) with the right dimensions is important to ensure that the image is stretched across your Facebook fans' newsfeed on both desktop and mobile without it being stretched or resized unnecessarily 

An enticing copy with a quick call to action is also important within the first 90 characters as status messages are truncated after the 90th character on Facebook's mobile version

Keep these tips in mind when creating new updates on your Facebook page that you can later use in promoting your page via Facebook ads. We'll share more about this in our next post
