Lately I have noticed an influx of people selling stuff on their personal Facebook profiles (I am guilty too from time to time!!). It got me thinking and wondering if people know the benefits of starting a Facebook business “page” for their small businesses? Or is it just too daunting of a task with too many questions? I’m going to have a series of articles on this topic to hopefully help break it down and make it easy! I love seeing my friends pursuing their dreams, working their side hustle, earning some extra moola on the side…I also know the limitations of using a personal profile in this way and want everyone to have the tools to take things wherever they want to go!
Facebook is pretty groovy for allowing anyone to set up a business page…it’s quick and easy to set up, oh and…COMPLETELY FREE! You do not have to be an organized business – people have personal brands they grow all the time on a Facebook page.
Having a page rather than a profile to conduct your business on makes your business more official, more professional, and more in-tune with today’s social media marketing strategies.
