A Facebook store is an easy and highly effective way to boost the sales of your products. Facebook has over 2 billion active users every single month, giving you an additional outlet for branding and sales. Many ecommerce platforms make it easy for you to automatically link your products to your Facebook Business Page requiring little to no tech experience.

Once setup, when people visit your Facebook Page, they can simply click on your Store Tab and purchase products directly on your Facebook Store (or can redirect visitors to your online store, thus increasing your traffic). In order to get people to buy from your Facebook store, active engagement on Facebook and growing your audience/community should be apart of your overall business plan.
