    Hi

    Long story short, I have just temporarily got hold of three accounts. Basically I am trying to help a friend of mine whose biz isn?t working. I used to be very active on these forums a while back but have completely lost touch with SEO now. I have promised my friend that I would help her make some extra money (which is my gift to her since she's getting married later this year!). I have a few restrictions as she doesnt want to drastically change the theme of here social accounts. Her business is mainly centered around Asian clothing (mainly targeting UK customers).


    She has 3 main social accounts

    • Her FB page consists of mostly young Asian women from the age of 13 to 45 with almost 16K fans. Half of them are from UK while the rest of them are from all over the World.
    • Her twitter account has around 18K followers. Mixed ethnicity but mostly white English.
    • Her Instagram account has more than 5000 fans?mostly very young demographic from all over the World (half of them being English)

    I am very interested in how i could monetize this temporarily for her through other means (may be selling some other stuff) without losing her customer base as well. What would you do if you were in my position? Thank you!

    If her social Media account is based solely on Asian clothing, and if she's not ready to divulge into other business, then you can try using them to sell trending cloths in Asian markets.

    Is there like a marketplace I could use the website/fb to market others products per commission?

    How many people are actually repeatedly buying shirts from her social media accounts each month? Advertising budget for her most profitable social media account? I need example sales copy and images used promoting the sales as well (you can scrape something together to protect her privacy).

    Don't rely on followbacks as this seems like its a branding issue for your friend. I can feel for the situation but you'll need to come down to this one simple fact: Does your friend want to just make side cash or is it a real business? If its a real business she cant just pay her bills and hope for more lazy sales. You'll need her to find solid income to pay for her advertising campaigns, branding, and even content publishing. Once everything is looking in order, she needs to develop target sales copy to promote her brand of shirts.

    Small changes first, and the biggest change is that she needs repeat sales. List building would do, depending on shirt quality and the overall branding of her shirts.
