Start Selling Your Door Hangers to Facebook

Before you take the time to create a Facebook page to sell your door hangers, I highly recommend to start by posting to your personal Facebook page. Use the post as a way to show off this new “hobby” you’ve taken up, but don’t say that you’re selling them. Wait for someone to comment asking if you can make one, then say, “Yes! Send me a private message.” When they message you, offer them a price you are comfortable with and wait for a sale. It’s important not to post the price in the comments of the post, because it will keep people curious about how much you’re selling the door hangers for.

Be Patient, Sales Will Come

Don’t fret if the first person that messages you doesn’t bite on the price you offer. You may feel the need to adjust your pricing, but don’t sell yourself short. The sales will eventually come and once you have your first one, the confidence is sure to grow!
