When it comes to Facebook’s popularity, there’s no longer any question. Along with chatting or sharing photos with your friends, you can now use it for product promotion and sales. If you’re considering Facebook Shops as a sales channel, here are 5 ways to help you get there:
1- Sales Tab
2- Payment method
The next step is to select payment options for selling products or services. The first payment option directs users to your website for payment. In this case, Facebook is a storefront rather an actual point of sale. What you really want and need is an online store.
With the second option, visitors pay for their purchases via Messenger. The payment method doesn’t matter with this option; what’s important is that it fits with your marketing strategy.
3- Setting up shop
The final step before going online is to select the currency. Which region or country will your customers come from? Normally, you should select the currency of your own country (CAD, USD, EUR, etc.).
Once your Facebook Store is up and running, you can add inventory. But how do you do it?
4- Adding products to a Facebook shop
Facebook Shop lets you synchronize your WooCommerce, Bigcommerce and Shopify stores. Any product currently available in one of these online stores is automatically added to Facebook, with a simple procedure, clearly and precisely explained.
However, if you want to keep track of your Facebook Store, add your products manually. Here’s how to do it, once you click on “Add a product”:
1- You need at least one image of the product, which should be square in shape, i.e. 1024 x 1024 pixels.
2- Product descriptions must be concise enough to quickly capture potential customers. For effectiveness, indicate the product’s key benefits and how it can improve daily life.
3- Titles should be brief and representative of the product as a whole. The trick is to be effective, not flashy!
5- Product collections
Just like product categories for traditional online stores, Facebook offers the option to create product collections and make browsing easier for customers.
