You can Start a Reselling Business on Facebook

It’s really easy to set up a Business Page and start selling something on Facebook. 

And if you want to sell on Facebook, it has to be on a Business Page, why? 

First, you have access to analytics that will show you how your posts are doing. You can see how many people your post reached and how many interactions. And most importantly, if you are selling on Facebook, you need to advertise to scale your small business up. 

And don’t worry, at $5 dollars, Facebook can help you reach thousands of people online.

You want to be a reseller, now what are you going to sell? 

Well, you should make simple research on what your community needs. What demands of the people you can address. An example of this is homemade food items, like sausages and cookies. Sausages and cookies may sound trivial, but these are daily consumer items.

You can start on something simple like this, and once you are able to understand how to communicate with customers, you can proceed with selling big-ticket items for more profit.

You Grow a Social Media Account

If you read this, I bet the first thing that would come into your mind is YouTube, right?

Let me tell you, it does not have to be YouTube. 

You can monetize your content inside any social media account. 

If you don’t have an immediate need for money, then growing a social media account is the best answer to your question,” How to Earn Money as a Teenager?”. The secret of how to monetize your social media account is to have tons of Followers or you are able to establish a significant presence on the internet.

Your presence means you connect with people, and that connection is something you can monetize. A social media influencer can influence or provide awareness of a product, and you can charge businesses for that. 

You can become an endorser of a product!!

But before you become an influencer, I need to tell you about the biggest challenge you need to face.

And that BIG word is REJECTION. 

If you are only starting out, almost nobody will pay attention to you. With the social currencies of likes, shares, and comments, you will receive almost zero of that during the beginning of your career. 

And worst of all, your friends and families will be your first doubters rather than supporters. 

Thus, if you decide that you will take this path, which I recommend you should. 

Have the stamina to persevere. Have clarity of your goals. Love the process. And work on building yourself to be a better person each day.
