Curious about all the changes in Facebook Marketplace (FBMP) and what's coming? Wondering how FBMP is impacting drop shipping? I cover it all in this episode. I also talk about my Grove Funnel journey and what's my plans are for that amazing tool.
Facebook Marketplace is the little kiosk/storefront icon that you find if you’re on Facebook. I evolved from something that is an online garage sale to a platform that competes with Amazon.com. Recently, Facebook Marketplace has introduced something called the shipping option. That means when you list an item, you can choose if this item is for sale locally, by shipping, or both.
It’s a powerful platform due to the number of users on Facebook — you have hundreds of millions of people potentially available to see your products. Facebook, more than any other marketplace out there, also knows a ton of information about potential buyers.
The opportunity to make a lot of money on Facebook Marketplace very quickly is high if you’re willing to do the work. That’s what is taught in the course that I told you about in the last episode, but what I missed to share is the coupon code to get $250 off: FB250.
One of the tricky things about drop shipping though is that you can get overwhelmed by orders, order tracking, data entry for shipping, etc. so this is where you can use automation. By far, the best one is ZeeDrop.
What are the three amazing things that ZeeDrop does?
- Takes an item that you identify at a supplier and reads that listing. It will copy the relevant information out of that listing, open up a Facebook Marketplace page, and post all of the stuff that you need to make the listing.
- Monitors supplier inventory. It can see whether or not an item has sold out and what the price is, so it notifies if things go out of inventory and you can see if there is a price change.
- Copies and pastes data into all of the suppliers that it supports. A tedious task in Facebook Marketplace drop shipping is that once you sell an item, there's a lot of copy-pasting of your customer's name and address which can take time if you are fulfilling lots of orders. ZeeDrop also understands how to do this.
