  1. The blogspot link was dated 2015 so there is no up-to-date info. Wish there was a link to his Facebook page or profile. I am a little confused. Is he selling from his friend profile? I thought Facebook didn’t allow business sales from a friend profile. I thought Facebook required one to set up a business page. But, of course, reach is greatly reduced when using a business page because they want you to purchase ads. The danger of building a sales platform on Facebook is that if they shut you down(like, if they find out you are selling from a friend account), you are out of business.

    Nevertheless, lots of good tips as long as you understand the risks and pitfalls.
