Share your products on social media

More people around the world are using mobile devices to access the internet, with an expected 3.8 billion users by 2021. And in turn, these users are increasingly turning to social media for finding new products to purchase.

What better way to capture new customers than to share posts of your products on social media?

Pro tip: Since both Facebook and Instagram are very visual sites, we recommend using enticing images for your products to attract buyers.

To get started with this feature, you’ll want to select the Social option in the Marketing dropdown menu from your Website + Marketing dashboard.

Promote your paid services to social media

In the Websites + Marketing dashboard, select Services under the Appointments menu.

Sell on Facebook and Instagram

With the Websites + Marketing Facebook Commerce integration, you can upload your Online Store product catalog to Facebook and keep your inventory synced up consistently.

Once the products are synchronized, you can create shoppable posts on Facebook and Instagram, promote a product or a collection on a Facebook Shop page or create dynamic product ad campaigns, all with a nominal budget to drive sales.

Customers that find your products on Facebook and Instagram in a shoppable post can visit your online store to learn more about the product and complete their purchase.

Seamless integration with Facebook and Instagram Shops

With the Websites + Marketing Facebook and Instagram Shops integration, you can easily set up Facebook and Instagram Shops and sync your Online Store product catalog to both.

Shops makes shopping seamless across Facebook and Instagram, increases discoverability and allows you to deliver an enhanced social ecommerce experience to your customers.

Additionally, using the Shops feature in Websites + Marketing allows you to easily manage both Facebook and Instagram Shops from within the Marketplaces page, rather than having to log in separately to each service.

To use this feature, you’ll need to first connect your Websites + Marketing store to Facebook and Instagram. For the full set of instructions, you can view the walkthrough on our Help Center.

Once connected, you’ll have the option to click Get Started for both Facebook and Instagram Shops, as shown below.

To use this feature, click on the Fulfill Order button for the completed order you’d like to personalize.
