Use Your Facebook Page To Promote Products.

It’s time to promote and tag products on Facebook. The more you engage with your Facebook fans, the more notifications and updates they will receive, which increases your probability of selling.

You should also keep reminding them of your products by regularly posting on your Facebook shop page. The higher the exposure, the higher the chance they will click the Shop Now button.

Keep Your Audience Interested in Your Brand

Keep Your Audience Interested in Your Brand

Now that you’ve linked your shop’s page to your Facebook store, it is essential not to overdo advertisements.

Have you ever followed a page on a social media platform that only posts about its products? Most people keep their distance from Facebook business pages and Instagram shops.

You must keep your followers interested in your projects and products, and you can do this in several ways.

For example, if you’re selling homemade jewelry on Etsy, you can post a video on Facebook showing the entire production process with an explanation.

You can also host live Q&A (question and answer) sessions on Facebook and address some of your customers’ concerns.

Remember to post regularly, update your store, and actively engage with your audience to retain them.

The Bottom Line

Etsy sellers and small business owners can connect their Etsy shops to their Facebook shops. It is a huge plus for sales and can turn browsers into long-term clients.

You will have your Facebook directly accessible from your Etsy domain, and your Facebook shop’s link will be readily available in the About section of your Etsy store.

Your followers will also receive updates on the new listings on your shop, or you can update your Facebook catalog manually. You can reach many new potential customers and increase awareness for your shop name and Etsy products.

Keep them engaged by posting more and sharing your impressive Etsy listing. Doing so can help you make more money on Etsy.
