Train Your Sales Team to Retain More Facebook Marketplace Leads
Effective use of Facebook Marketplace involves being ready and helpful on a smartphone. Our new downloadable one-page guide will help your sales team assist your Marketplace leads more effectively.
If I were to hazard a guess, I would say your competition is probably treating Marketplace as a secondary lead source — not allocating time and effort into answering questions and closing many of these local leads.
Here’s How You Can Gain an Edge on Facebook Marketplace
Like many sales teams, yours might be juggling in a circus of tasks on any given workday. Don’t let Facebook Marketplace become one of those “back burner” items.
Facebook’s classifieds system, known in the marketing world as “Marketplace,” is a quickly growing feature with millions of active shoppers. According to CBT Automotive Network, more than 550 million people across 51 countries are using Marketplace. That’s more than 10 times as many visits as Craigslist each month!
In 2017, Facebook collaborated with Cars.com to list its inventory on Marketplace, which resulted in a 27% lift in consumer interactions for Cars.com dealers.
Now, instead of limiting Marketplace to certain partners, like Cars.com, Facebook has opened this technology for any dealership that has an inventory feed provider — making it easier than ever to reach people shopping for vehicles on Facebook.
The challenge now, of course, is retaining those qualified shoppers who message your dealership via Marketplace listings.
Marketplace shoppers are “in the moment,” which means they’re further down the sales funnel than people who are simply encountering your ads in their news feeds or on the ad network. That’s why it’s so crucial to follow up quickly!
