Am starting a new boys & girls Facebook business selling kids clothes & accessories. I have them online now but just need more people to have a look & like :-)
Just wanting to get some info on what other mums are looking for ( in terms of goods/value) & what makes u like a page.
Also what ways do u recommend to spread the word about your business? I would like to reach other mums so they can see what I offer on my pages. Any thoughts appreciated??

I think if you sell something original then the battle is half won. I know 5 different Facebook businesses that sell the exact same clothes they source from China, re-label and put on a 300% mark up and sell them as 'boutique' - and people fall for that!! There is a big Chinese website that you can buy these children's clothes in bulk for next to nothing - because they are rubbish!
So, to answer your question, I would be looking for something well made and original, that hadn't been imported to make a quick buck.

Thanks for the input. Yes I am selling boys & girls clothing. Some are imported & some sourced locally. I pride myself on offering reasonable prices & an interesting range.
I agree that you do have to be somewhat different & also competitions are a great way to get your name out there.

Have you tried Pinterest. You can open a business account and post your own items + other things that are of interest to get some followers. I think it has helped my business.
