Is there any way to "sell" a Facebook fanpage?

by 22 comments
I have the #1 fanpage for the PlayStation Vita, but I've moved on to marketing with YouTube. I'd hate to see this successful fan page go to waste so I want to to know, is there any way to sell someone admin access or something. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's a info graphic I made of it:

      how can you sell it on flippa? you don't own the Fan page...Facebook owns it.

      What if the account connected as the admin gets banned or hacked. That page is gone isn't it?

      I always figured it wasn't worth buying because you receive something you don't technically own...more like renting the this incorrect?

    Personally, could not find any info on the issues on Facebook itself. I would highly guess they would not be a fan of selling pages. The risk of them taking a page is high, in that they own them anyway. I would vote no to selling, but I sure would like to have that

    Flippa won't approve that, I tried it with a page that had 9000. I ended up selling it on ebay (as a website) for $175. Disappointing, but I was done with it anyway. The market is getting flooded with these since FB has started cracking down on pages with "bought" fans... Put up a small WP website, and pimp it.

    Its possible I guess. There are some buyers even here in this forum. Best of luck.

    Yeah, I have two ideas one is flippa- I am suggesting on my experience with flippa.
    another is direct contact of your competitors.

    Legally - Nope facebook has made it very clear that you do not own the page or the site and because you don't own the page, could you legally sell it?

    That being said, people still do it at their own risk of course, in a case like this you may want to find someone to manage the page on your behalf instead, then this comes with its own set of risks.

    Against facebook rules, but people still do It. I have seen a few sold as well, but It's all about the stats.

    Also to anyone replying to the new posters In PM or Email saying their selling stuff, please don't contact them, most likely you're going to be scammed.

    The answer is yes. I know a guy who's business is only selling facebook fan pages and twitter accounts.

    How it works? I mean if you sell the fan pages to me, my facebook's fan page will get 778,000 fans!? However, if the fans find that, do they will leave me?

    You could try selling it on ebay. I have bought multiple websites off ebay and sold a couple as well. People are definitely looking and its worth a shot if you already have a well established ebay account.

    My Question would be, are you making any money with your site? If so how much? I would love to know more about the income of the site!

    The best place I can suggest is ebay.

    If your facebook fanpage is famous or having pr then somebody of same interest or business definitely buy it. Just post your offer on social networing sites and their groups and communities and on your page too.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
