How this works

If you want to do this, you will have to build a facebook page and get an audience for it. You will sell the page after you successfully built it and gather the audience the buyer may need.

This is because many business owners don’t have enough time to build their audience and campaign.

This is similar to Facebook marketing, the difference is that you will need to build the page first.

Is selling Facebook page legal?

Facebook doesn’t really mention about the selling of facebook pages are illegal. There mention that to sell a facebook page, you should get their permission before selling it.

So if you want to be totally legal, try taking permission from facebook before selling.

Create a facebook group, manage and make sure you get enough audience. That means you should have relevant people depending on your preferred niche.

You can create a sales group, this group can be relevant to people who are into buying and selling or have a sales website.

You can create a group with the focus for bloggers, webmasters, designers or marketers. Because these set of people are the most relevant when it comes to the internet.

Choosing your price

If you want to choose a price, you should consider the following:

  • The members
  • The engagement of the members
  • How useful the group can be
  • How many people are ready to buy
  • The response of members to the group activities.
