Dear Sell Handmade Crafts Online:
I’m new selling and have just opened up my jewelry shop with ArtFire. I’ve hooped on the forums now and again and people have asked me do I have a Facebook page. I have a Facebook page for myself but I don't want to to give this out to other people. I've seen Facebook pages that look like their a business, but I'm not sure how to do it or what I would do if I had it.
Dear Confused Seller:
Welcome to the wide world of selling online! It’s wonderful that you’re involved on the forums on ArtFire. It’s true that Facebook was initially designed to help people stay in contact with friends and family, and it’s a good idea to keep your personal Facebook account separate from your business. However, Facebook also has “pages” available for businesses which are separate from profiles and allow you to promote your studio without giving people access to your personal Facebook account.
If you’re just getting started selling your product online, it can be very helpful to have a Facebook page for your studio. With this page you can promote your brand on Facebook to their 400+ million users. It will also allow your shoppers on ArtFire the ability to “Like” your business on Facebook, helping you to establish a connection with them as well as provide exposure to your shoppers’ Facebook friends.
