How to sell product via social media platform?

Discussion in 'eCommerce' started by philipuser, Aug 1, 2019.

    Which social media platform do you use to promote your product, Youtube, Facebook or Instagram?
    I want to try social media marketing but I am not sure which one is my best choice. I am going to sell stationery products.
    Thanks!

    At first, you should discover, which platforms your customers use most.
    And I will recommend you to sell on Instagram.If you want to get people who like your pictures buying your items, it’s worthwhile to add the Shop Now functionality to your posts. When customers click that button, they’re taken to the website to buy it. Instagram has various features like grouped photos to help you market your product better.
    Also, you can sell using Pinterest by investing in buyable pins and also making use of superior visual content to help market their products to a wider audience.

    We sell mostly to local customers using Facebook. Craigslist is dead and Facebook is taking over.

    Thanks so much. This is really helpful. What is the content you regularly post on Instagram? I don't know how to arrange the post schedule. If there are too many posts about product selling, I am worried they will unfollow me.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply. It seems that Facebook has a very low natural reach to followers. Should I set up a Facebook group?

    The facebook marketplace has a very good reach locally and growing. Also can do very targeted ads if you like. I'm not a big fan of groups unless you can somehow get a ton of followers who are very passionate about the same thing together.

    As a Marketing specialist, I mainly use Instagram & Facebook for sponsored Ads. It also depends on the category of your product or services. For a home category, the images are extremely important so I find platform like Instagram very effective!

    Do you mean to promote your post or promote your store directly?
