And here, the list of such popular approaches is made to make you know how to do it! Depending on your strengths, skill-sets and interest, you can choose any.

So, get started!

Post it on your timeline

While scrolling through Facebook, I come across some posts made by my friends where they sell their belongings (of any kind) amidst their Facebook friends’ circle (or maybe, selling it to someone their friend could bring-like, by sharing their posts).

This is such a convenient way I’ve found as it prevents the inconveniences of selling it to some random stranger. It takes away the unwanted headache.

And, the selling is done most comfortably that too, in just a click.

Therefore, we may do it, too.

You must be wondering, HOWWW?

Very simple, just write about the materials, you wish to sell. Remember, you want to sell it. So, kindly make it as detailed post as possible with lucid specifications.  This can also include images, links, photos, videos-anything that would build your content well. To this post, you may tag friends, share it on your newsfeed, make it as your story or you may even DM this post to your desired list of friends.

This timeline post will be limited to your friends; you can still manage your audiences. To reach a broader audience, you may ask your friends to share your post, too.

Feel free to use your friends’ selling posts as your inspiration if, you need.

How Facebook Messenger is helpful in this?

Now if someone shows interest, turn-up to them and continue the chat on Facebook Messenger. This is a private messaging app, through which you can keep in touch with them.

You can use these messages even later on to see what they want, if they don’t make your sale, formerly.

  1. Join buy and sell groups

This is an extension of the previous approach. It allows you to reach a larger audience and it’s up to you if you still want to reach out to more number of people.

The style of creating the content remains the same except that; you need to adhere to the rules of the groups, selling policies and guidelines.  Else, the admin would delete or remove it.

You can search for such groups on Facebook, and you’ll even find suggestions to join other such groups, too. Which is your choice!

  1. Sell on Facebook marketplace


This is a free-for-all feature where we may buy, sell or trade almost everything in our surroundings. Although, not as specialised as the groups mentioned above.

As everyone has access to Facebook Marketplace, so they can easily share the post with their friends and can make you connect with people from far and wide.

Also, recently it has added some new features that use Artificial Intelligence(AI) that would make buy/sell faster.

  1. Make your own profitable group

If the above approach doesn’t give the freedom you want, you may start your group. Now, this will be powerful when you want to sell a particular type of product, like hand-made jewellery, artefacts, gift items, cards, customised frames, etc.

You can gain the audience by adding your friends and also, people with similar interest would stop by your account. This might give you a chance to collaborate with like-minded people, and you can attract a broader audience and may distribute work and sales if managed together.

It will take some weight off your shoulders.

  1. Facebook live video

If a camera is your weapon, Facebook Live can be an exciting option to build a personal brand. They are becoming super popular and might go viral.

You can create videos to show how you use a product in real-time. Or, you can arrange for a live questionnaire session where you can interact with the live audience where you can answer their questions by viewing them live.

As the Internet is approaching faster among the masses in town, YouTube is not the only option left for the video thing fun.

  1. Tech-savvies are summoned

This is the least popular and the most reliable approach for people who love technology and are observant. YES! Hackers can turn in if they are able to report the critical security flaws.

It’s a long shot because the bug needs to be undiscovered by Facebook. But, the potential hackers can earn if they report the fixes to be made to the developers. Also, the Facebook Bug Bounty program lets you report bugs that need to be fixed.
