Today, I’m going to be showing how you can be selling PLR products on Facebook. Not only PLR products, in fact, any digital product. When I mean any digital product, I mean, you can be selling anything other than PLR.
For example, you might have created something yourself, such as graphics, logos, music, a website, an ebook, software, etc. basically anything digital. So, keep that in mind, it doesn’t have to be specifically PLR products, it can be a product that you’ve created yourself. Using the same method, I’m about to teach you; this can be used in conjunction with whatever you’re selling.
Having your own digital product to sell is one thing, but knowing how to sell it is another whole story altogether. So, I’m going to show you a cool method that you can start right now with no up-front cost. I’m also going to presume that you have your own product ready whether it’s a PLR product or a product you have created yourself.
To begin with, there are two sites I’m going to inform you about. The first one, of course, you’d be familiar with, and that’s Facebook. And the second is a site called PayHip. Let me speak a little about PayHip, because I assume you don’t need to be introduced to Facebook.
A Bit About PayHip
PayHip is a site that allows you to sell digital products. It’s not a marketplace where you will be submitting your products too, but whereas, it’s a place where they host your files, handle all the payments (via PayPal and Stripe) and deliver the files to your customers automatically.
Now here’s the cool part, you don’t need any host, and knowledge of how to set up a sales page, heck, you don’t even need a domain name. Everything is done for you (I've briefly explained about the fees within the video found on this page).
So, you might be asking yourself, “so how the hell do I sell my digital products on Facebook?” Okay, let me get to that. But first, you’ll need an account at PayHip. All you have to do is create a free account, and mind you; it’s 100% free to join with no monthly charges.
Done-For-You Sale Pages
Once you have an account, you’re able to then create what they call pages. These pages sought of work like a sales page. Meaning, you will enter your product details such as a title, a price, a product image and that’s basically it, oh, and of course, add your products download file by uploading it to their server.
By doing so, you’ll then get a link. The link what you'll receive is what you will be sharing on Facebook to make sales. Because what happens is, when a user presses the link, they will be redirected to this private page (sales page I like to call it) where the product details will be found and also the payment button. If your visitor wants it, boom! You’ve made a sale.
Your Very Own E-commerce Store
Another cool feature that PayHip has to offer is that you’ll be able to create your very own store. This way you’ll list all the products you have for sale in one location. You’ll be able to sell individual products by sharing the link they give you (as I mentioned above) or share your storefront as a whole. This is a great way to sell more of your products, then just the one.
Building Your List In The Process
One of the coolest things about selling on PayHip is that you get to keep your customers. If you’re not collecting your leads in whatever you're doing online, then you’re dead in the water. Because it allows you to follow up with these customers for any new product you have. An excellent way to make more money when it comes to selling new or existing products.
For example, whenever a customer purchases something from you, that users email address gets added to your mailing list. This data gets stored on PayHip so no need for any third-party email marketing service, saving you money in the process. But, if you want to send all your customers details to your existing email marketing service, such as MailChimp or Aweber, well, this can be done too.
Keeping Track Of Everything
Another cool feature that PayHip offers is tracking your visitors and customers. This is done through their analytics tracking system which is viewed on a neat dashboard all within your PayHip account.
You’ll get everything you’re needing to know about your audience, where they’re coming from, what marketing channels have the highest conversion rates etc. All this data will helps you to make better marketing decisions.
Another great way to send traffic to your products and offers is to recruit affiliates. This is done by sending a link to them, as you’ll get your very own unique link (As pictured in the below image).
Having your own affiliates to promote your products is a powerful way to make more sales and rewarding them in the process. The best part, this is all done for you, that is, the payments, links, and everything in-between.
Selling PLR On Facebook
Okay, were finally here at the finale. Now that I’ve explained all the essential details above, you should now be able to understand the following what I’m about to explain to you. Here are some steps I’ve numbered in order what you should do. Note, that you might already have some of these in place, so feel free to use them.
Step 1: Create a Facebook Page
The first thing you want to do is to create a Facebook page. This will be like your store and brand where you will be posting your products with the unique link I mentioned above. Keep in mind; you can post your link anywhere on Facebook, such as your personal profile, groups, other peoples page, etc. But the primary focus here and I highly recommend you do this, is building a brand.
Step 2: Adding Your First Product To PayHip
If you haven’t already done so, head on over to PayHip and create your free account. Once you have setup your account by integrating all the Payment details, your mailing list, etc. add your first product. This is a straightforward process, and I show you how this is done in the video on this page. So be sure to watch it.
Step 3: Submitting To Facebook
Now, this is the fun part. Once you have submitted your first product, you would have been given a link. Simply now share this link. First, I’m wanting to provide you with some tips for doing this…
Tip 1: Brand your Facebook page so it can be recognized and remembered. Add a cover and a catchy profile image. This way, your visitor’s will remember your brand, and even might start to follow you or like your page.
Tip 2: When posting on Facebook, don’t just post the link. Add an image. On Facebook, images get a higher ranking then just a link. So, keep this in mind.
Tip 3: And don’t forget the hashtags. These help people to find what you’re offering when they search on Facebook using keywords. So, don’t forget this.
Tip 4: If it’s a product your selling that can help people, well, write how it can be helping that person within the description field. Don’t just use the auto-generated description that comes from the link, as a written description will get a much higher search result on Facebook.
To sum it all up. Everything I mentioned on this page is pretty easy to do, with no technical difficulties involved. So, give it a go and see how you like it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
