Facebook is a boon for business, advertising and marketing, one can sell any product on facebook. People who do not own a site or blog can also earn a good amount of money through facebook using the marketplace feature.
But, what is the ratio that your products are sold on facebook?
The ratio is very low, if there are 1000 users selling products on facebook only 5% will succeed! This is the fact and I have personally experienced it.
If you want to be in the 5% of people who are successfully selling their online, virtual or physical products on facebook. You need to read the entire blog.
I have been selling online products on facebook from 2018, basically these online products are affiliate products of Amazon or some other affiliate networks.
Daily basis on an average I get 100 enquires on my products which I have uploaded on facebook Marketplace. Out of these 100 products, I am sure 10 products will be sold.

How Should I Start Selling Products On Facebook?
Facebook has a feature of Marketplace, it is a place where you can sell and buy products. Sellers who are like you upload their online product, contents and buying link, buyers will click on these products and buy it.
There is no one in between you and the buyer.
If you have your own online store or a physical store. You can upload the picture of your product, the price, features, location, contact number and other details and publish it. Buyers, if thy like it will try to contact you before paying the amount.
Step 1 – Go to Facebook Marketplace and click on Create listing.
Step 2 – Click on Item for sale if you selling any products. If you are planning to sell vehicle then you need to click on Vehicle for sale and same applies for home as well.
Step 3 – Add your product image, price, details, location, title, description, condition and category.
Step 4 – Once you have added all the details, click next. You need to next publish your products on facebook group. If possible try to join as many marketing and advertising facebook groups, so that maximum people can view and reach out to your products.
Make a habit of selling publishing more than 10 products daily. Choose the best seller products or the trending products which are in high demand. If you are using amazon products, then do check the best amazon seller, there you will find the latest and trending products which are in high demand.
Users will either try to contact you via messenger or if you have mentioned your cell number, they might directly call you. Ensure you do not interact much with the user, just say hi and hello. Ask them if they are interested in their products.
If the buyer bargains with you, stop the conversation and ignore them or do not reply. This is the thumb rule. You will be receiving hundreds of enquires on your products, it is really impossible to revert and reply to every user. Keep a close watch on products listing, facebook will notify you as to when you can renew the listing which has become old.
The best way to sell any products on facebook is through affiliate blogs. I do that and I have seen the difference. It is really profitable.
All you need to do is, create a website and add affiliate blogs on it. Create an attractive blog of a particular product. If you are planning to sell a cell phone. Create a blog with a heading “Top 10 mobile phones“. Add the cost the description of the 10 products in that blog and then publish that blog link on facebook marketplace.
There are very good chances that user will visit your blog through facebook and might buy any one cell phone of the 10 which are listed in your blog. Click here to find out, how to write the best affiliate blog post.
