Here are 7 Free Tips for accelerating growth with Facebook Marketplace

1. Detail, Detail, Detail

No matter what product you are selling, you should always pay attention to details. Provide information that will generate trust in your customers. Are you selling second-hand clothes? If the shirt you are selling has a stain, include a close-up of the defect. Be honest with your customers and they will trust you and want to buy from you.

2. Be Clear About Your Price

Whether or not you are open to negotiations in your pricing, you should always make that clear. Be upfront about what you'll accept and what you won't. This will save you from having to answer inquiries from customers that are not willing to match your price.

3. Don’t Make Too Many Listings at Once

While listing everything at the same time might seem like a good idea, it can be difficult trying to coordinate delivery for everything you're offering. Replacing your listings as they sell off will help you remain organized and keep you from making mistakes.

4. Respond Quickly

The idea behind Marketplace is impulse buying, so don't take too long to answer. The sooner your respond, the better use you'll make of this tool.

5. Make Your Work Look Good With the Right Photos

If your photos don't capture your customers' attention, then all of the effort you've put into your craft will be wasted. Showcase your products to their advantage.

6. Spread the Word

If you promote your craft everywhere you can, even outside of Facebook, there is more opportunity for people to get to your Marketplace.

7. Prep your Profile

Facebook Marketplace is credible because people can see that there is someone real behind your listed products. People know your name and can see what you look like. Be careful about what you share on your public profile, make it look like you are trustworthy.
