Build a List
Please, for the love of all that is holy, stop posting about your efforts to sell things on Facebook.
Actually, that’s a lie. I’d LOVE for you to put together one final post. Encourage any of your facebook friends that are ACTUALLY INTERESTED in your offers to sign up for your email list. That would actually be valuable.
Your #1 priority should now be building an email list.
Your facebook friends are sick and tired of your awkward posts.
You’re sick and tired (and feel guilty) for asking your friends and family to buy from you, REPEATEDLY.
Your friends and family feel guilty because they want to support you, but they don’t need what you’re selling. And they’re tired of your faux-altruism.
This is not the end of the world.
It is also NOT the end of the road for you.
There is a market that exists outside of your facebook friends.
It’s up to you to find them, but that’s why it’s called “work”. You’re going to have to work at this. You probably got sold on selling your particular product because it was going to be “easy”.
Nothing worth have is easy.
Selling is NOT easy.
If you want to really make some money off of your venture, then it’s time to build an email list and stop pestering the same FB friends over and over again.
Your FB friend list is made up of UNQUALIFIED LEADS.
An email list is made up of targeted, QUALIFIED leads.
Yes, it’s going to take you longer to build your email list than it took you to build your friend list on FB. That’s to be expected.
However, if you have a website, if you’re constantly putting out content, and if you’re actually selling something that people want then it’s only a matter of time before your list grows and your sales begin to gain momentum.
Build an email list.
It’s the simplest, easiest way to make money.
