Setting Up Shop on Facebook

5th Aug 2009 SEO 1 minute to read


After a number of successful trials, including 1-800 Flowers, plans are afoot to further expand the number of retailers selling directly through Facebook.

1800 flowers

The new storefront capability has attracted strong interest, with 20 more already in the pipeline for release in the coming months. It’s not difficult to see why. With a daily unique user rate of around 120 million, Facebook has raced up the web rankings.  In fact only yesterday it was confirmed that Facebook is now the fourth largest site in the world.

So whilst the social media site is still known primarily for helping the world communicate, it is now evidently diversifying even further. For their part, Facebook haven’t charged anything thus far for the service; making it a perfect advertising opportunity for companies with a social media presence.

Whether these storefronts prove to be a flash in the pan or a hugely popular worldwide phenomenon; Facebook has once again shown itself to be a perfect marketing tool. The site’s exponential growth in recent times has swung open the door of opportunity to many; it has also helped ensure continued development of the site’s capabilities for all users, as these new virtual storefronts are testament to.

With the sheer volume of traffic they receive each and every day, Facebook is surely an online retailers’ dream.
