How to Share your Wedding Recycle listings on Social Media

How-To…

…Share Your Wedding Recycle listings on Social Media

I would be embarrassed to tell you how much time I spend online during the day (I tell my husband I’m busy building my empire but mostly I’m just on Facebook 🙂 ). Can you relate? But it’s for a good cause…virtually all my world information, Wedding Recycle community interactions and other entrepreneurial-based endeavors start from my online sources and communities…and buying and selling is no different.

As Sellers on Wedding Recycle, I bet you want as much exposure as possible for the products you’ve listed for sale…so in addition to the marketing Wedding Recycle does on your behalf, why not increase your opportunities for sale and post your listings on your own social media sites?

(Not sure how to Add a Product? Watch our quick five-minute video at the bottom of the Sell Your Stuff page)

Here are some tips on how to post and where. Each of the Product Listings has a social media section just to the right of the image. Click any of the familiar icons to easily post your product listing to your social media sites!

Social media links

  1. Pinterest

Do you have a Pinterest board…or two…or 100? Adding the images from your Wedding Recycle listings to your Pinterest boards are an awesome way to promote your products, especially if you’ve used some of the incredible photos from your wedding to highlight your items (for more on how to add images to your product listings, see our blog post HERE)

  1. Facebook (obviously)

As the number one social media site, Facebook is an obvious place to share your Wedding Recycle listings with your network. Facebook will even preview your listing for you with images! Add a description or teaser, telling your friends why they should go buy this awesome product for you and voila, watch your sales come in!

  1. Twitter

Twitter is another popular social media site with a bit less focus on images, more of a focus on the words used to sell your product. When you’re sharing on Twitter, be creative in your description, let people here your personal tone and personality and use hashtags to identify your product so when someone searches for #weddingdecor or #awesomeweddingcenterpieces, your listing will pop up!

  1. Instagram

The number one social media site for sharing amazing images, Instagram is a great place to share your product listings with your network. Have a particularly incredible shot of the cake topper you’re looking to sell? Did your photographer take a super creative shot of your wedding rings? Use those inspirational images in your product listings and share those pics on Instagram. Don’t forget your #hashtags here too!

You can also share your products on your Google + account or send it to the email of someone you know is looking for exactly what you’re selling.

Don’t want to use our social media share buttons but not sure how to copy and paste the link to your product listing? The link is the ‘www’ address for your listing, shown at the top of your Internet page. Just click that link, highlight the whole thing, right-click and click COPY.

Lindsay Recknell

Lindsay Recknell co-founded Wedding Recycle out of pure necessity…the fifteen centerpiece vases on the living room floor had got to go! But finding a targeted audience to sell them to was the tricky part – not just anyone wanted fifteen fish bowls for their home. Thus Wedding Recycle was born – a place to connect with other new newlyweds and recently engaged couples, sharing ideas, and décor, with each other. Lindsay has always been an entrepreneur, a multi-dimensional self-starter prone to acts of randomness and dynamic ventures in her life. In addition to consulting as a data analyst during her “day job”, Lindsay’s role at Wedding Recycle is everything – business development, content creation, media correspondent and community liaison. If you contact Wedding Recycle, it’s likely you’ll get a response from Lindsay first and from that moment, you’ll understand and experience the passion, dedication, joy and motivation she has for the Wedding Recycle community and the wedding industry itself.
