Now that you are planning and acting on social media, how do you sell online?

A while ago it was only possible to sell online in that traditional way: a website, negotiating with card companies to accept the banners, and disclosure by Google. Today there are several other tools that will help you sell through internet and we will talk about some of them.

Of course, having a website structured and prepared to serve your customers works very well and becomes a place where you can manage your products, adjust your logistics and many other matters.

And in order for you to have the assertiveness and precision necessary to be able to sell and deliver your products to your customers, you need to pay attention to some points.

With Facebook and commercial Instagram, you can measure through the statistics given by the social media itself who is your consumer. Average age, gender, region and a series of demographic information that can and should be used when making a post offering a product.

  • Goals

Whenever you start to develop a job, whether in the physical or digital environment, you need to set goals. What do I want to sell? How much do I want to sell? Set goals and strive for them.

  • Find out who your competitors are

To do this kind of work, you need to understand with whom you dispute your audience. It is extremely necessary that you know who your competitors are and what differentials you have.
