Facebook Sales

May 26th, 2015 at 01:47 am

For the first time I have sold some of our household items on Facebook! I made $33 selling a patio umbrella with stand, a leaf blower and a push broom. It appears I have another possible sale tomorrow night that should net another $10 for a dresser.

The cash from all these sales should get the balance on the Citi card from January finally paid off. Smile

Selling on Facebook is still just as difficult as selling on Craigslist. People are still flakes about committing to an item. Don't say 'interested' if you don't at the same time tell me when you might want to pick it up!

I've given myself a limit of a week to get some of these items sold. If the items do not sell, I expect to donate or possibly trash the items. I don't want to move things I don't want anymore!!

Do you have any tips for getting people to commit with Facebook sales?

    I wish I did. I think generally if the person hasn't responded to you within an hour or so (depending on time of day of course) they probably are going to be a flake.

    My small group is very local, and very good about following through. But they're mostly "almost affluent" moms and are very picky about things--even items for $1 or $2. Good luck with your sales! You've started strong.
