I told her what By night, what a waste in Japanese and asked her, Wouldn't it be nice to make some money by selling your stuff instead of paying for dumb? Mr. I couldn't stand to let her harm the empowerment Since I would teach, I've been teaching there always closer clean out online class. Did you know that we're living in the throwing away? Well, the U. S. Is the worst country where it generates £4.5 of waste per person every day. I am from Japan, where it is a multi non culture. Even Japan generate £2.5 off waste part person every day. I quite surprised by my friend Christie's the clattering idea. I need to convince her to be sell her stuff instead of throwing away and giving to her friends who may not mean. But after she showed me has smile, I began to help her cynical make a list off the item to sell and then started to cost them on clicks. This where I have a soul quickly in the past, we this did you use the furniture and bulky items? First, however, we didn't get any enquiries. Reason. 24 hours as we expected, I had to think off other places to get faster. Enquiries. I recall the Facebook marketplace, which are using 2016 but after the lanced as an alternative to clicks ist. Although it was not successfully setting right away on Facebook marketplace in 2016 it's being a while, and I wanted to give it a try again. I've been posted the same items on Facebook marketplace. The next day I received a few enquiries. Within an hour. I have I was so happy that my intuition was right. I was also amazed that our listing on Facebook marketplace has been viewed by over 1000 people within 24 hours. According to Facebook s a developer. Confidence Facebook marketplace users reached 800 median, while clicks this has 60 million users. No wonder our Facebook marketplace past had more abuse and enquiries than clicks List. We listed 160 items boasts at a CLECs IST and Facebook marketplace. We then sold 90 items on Facebook, 19 on plexus and 25 2 neighbors for total off 134 items sold for total sales of 9000 $30 instead of pain, 600 dollars for Dumpster. Christie loved that result. To be honest with you, we have some price setting argument while we're selling, even though her original idea was paying for a dumpster. But I understand, but that that's made feeling how sales goal was $5000. We almost double that amount. I was so pleased to have made Christie happy. Well, saving the planet as well. That is the reason why I'm teaching how to make some money by decluttering us stuff using Facebook marketplace Hope you motivated by Christians. Story. Let's get started 3. 3. What is your goal?: a goal without a plan. It's just rubbish. You may have heard this court issue tick my other classes before. What? Their goal for taking this class.

Hope you get an idea of how to set your smart ical if you need help. Pretty is a community billow in this class. This class community will help you to set your perfect go. I also try to answer your question within 48 hours 4. 4. What is Requirements. : what will be needed To use Facebook marketplace, you need to have a three things. The first is either a smart form or computer and camera. The second it's your Facebook account, and the third, it's WiFi access to the Internet using Facebook marketplace. It's a free service. If you don't have any of those, you may ask your friend to help you in our project. Although my friend Christy has most of the requirement. Besides Facebook account, she is not interested in doing any social media activities. That's why she called me and asked me to help product clattering. So in this project, I was in charge to post trust stuff. Using my Facebook account, I will show you how I sold her stuff step by step in this grass cities. Lastly, another important requirement is having a growth mindset that stinks. Possibly when you have a fixed mindset, you may think, as I don't want to share my information with buyers, I don't feel safe inviting the buyers to my apartment. But if the buyer is about person, that's thinking with block positive reaction, Tom negative thinking is to positive thinking, which really result in what do you can sell more 5. 5. How it works: in this video, I will show you how I managed to sell Christine stuff using my Facebook account. This slide shows how it works that is, processing for selling their three easy steps to be sold. Step one. Posting your item. Step two. It's chatting with potential buyers. Step three. Meet the buyer in person to show your item than transacting cash. He here already for media. With online selling, you can link to your PayPal to face the payment to accept as an online payment. If you are a beginner, I strongly the commanded to getting familiar with the cast transaction. First. If you're interested in selling online, I will explain how I process the online sales transaction in Part three class. When the potential buyers see your item on Facebook marketplace, they would like to know if we'd still available. The buyer can then click, ask for detail. Blue button you at the sailor. We received a message in an I'm a singer. Chat like this. You can answer Yes, Sometimes people click the blue button by X. By mistake, I just answer Yes. Then wait for the next message. If the buyer is serious to buy the item, the buyer will send you another message, such as when they can pick up window by asks the next question. You are getting closer to sell your item. Please be nice to your buyer. When you sell big items such as furniture, you need to embody a fire in your place. You are not comfortable meeting a stranger by yourself. You may ask your family members or friends to be home with you. I have sold over 100 items in on Facebook market. Please All of the buyers I met in person one nice people. They were eco friendly and caregivers. But I will share some tips to deal with difficult buyer in part to class. So please don't Wallaby. 6. 6. Before Post: Christine's place a full of stuff like this. We needed to organize what items we want to sail first. Before posting to South, we sorted and organized the island by using clear boxes What we helped to see. The items were we started. Many empty boxes had to be full before recycle. If you have a spare spare room, use one of your rooms in which furniture can be stored. You don't have a room. Just take a photo and make a list. That what we did et home just as messy like this. If so, just organize it, then select the reach items to sell. If you feel overwhelmed, find your dream home photo. Sit and relax. Then imagine how your life would have changed after you had a dream. Whole, like the photo. Please keep in mind. You need to have a gross mindset rather than a fixed mindset that a real block positive reaction. Let's clean up your space. I would suggest selling the book is that first after you see the clear space, you can be motivated to go 7. 7. Research: before post an item or darling posting an item. I suggest you find a similar item by pretend to be a buyer on the Facebook marketplace. Tap to browse, then type the keywords off. The I didn't you're searching. The first item that will be listed on Facebook Marketplace was large furniture that it needed to be pickup locally. When I searched the similar couch type by, the Big told me in so far there was no item came up in a sense. The result? Yes, when I saw City using a keyword coach instead of the world. So far, two similar coaches came up. I always learn from other sailors about better key wars to disk lie. The similar idea. Please do the same to reach a wider audience and sell your stuff much faster. Please be careful picking the right words to describe the item to reach the right buyers. When I passed it, a bunch of large furniture I typed the keyword moving cell on the title. We don't know why we are not sure for some reason Facebook marketplace. Ai suspended our past. We needed to device the ad along with it. New title. Please don't freak out. If similar things happen to you, there is a way to solve the issue. Please keep in mind that a Facebook marketplace it's still in beta. 8. 8. POST: Take Photos: you can post items to sell from either smartphone or laptop and camera.
