Tip#1 Create the best impression with your Page - Facebook page customization
People don’t just buy anything and everything they come across…they make choices based out of impressions. Super markets strike my mind in this regard, no one knows better on impression marketing and selling if not them.

“Supermarkets, shopping malls fall in that category. You tend to buy something while entering, end up buying almost everything else… Huge offers, discounts, product showcase, good customer service who doesn’t want it.”

Similarly, your FB page should project similar appeal, create the best impression…
Proper FB page with full company address, website, store details, product manufacturing process, product quality, pricing, returns policy, everything at one shot.

If possible, provide your legit business documents supporting your business registration, alliances, etc. which would build trust in your customers by just a glance at your Facebook page.

Tip# 2 - Don’t ask to buy a product at first shot, ask to review
Don’t start the posting with an intention to sell it then and there. Take a U turn in selling concept, and you will see a good change. Selling is a technique; every sale must not be a typical knock-knock on a customer door.  Post a product and ask for reviews, if any good reviews, ask for references, get the trust factor and sales will follow inevitably. Word of mouth is the bestselling tactic when it comes to social media marketing. Let people talk about your product, review it, refer it.

More the reviews, more the people talk about your products, the better visibility for your page and products. This will be directly proportional to your sales numbers.

End of the Day, … everyone will be in win-win situation.
