Selling Facebook Page

6 replies
I have a page I am wanting to sell which I think is worth a bit.

I know it is against the FB terms of service but I have previously sold a page on it's own and I have sold a few websites where the FB page was technically not being directly sold but was part of the inclusions via Flippa.

I am thinking the best and most secure way to go ahead without spending money on a lawyer would be to build a free blog, list it via flippa, send the link to my buyer and add the facebook page as part of the inclusions.

Thoughts?

    Lots of people sell their facebook fan pages, yes it is against TOS but so are lots of things. If you plan on doing so, find a good middle man to do the transaction where both parties agree on terms. I know of people selling fan pages for $xx,xxx. Just make sure it is a private transaction meaning, you don't list it on flippa or any public domain. Forums are the best place for buyers and sellers of that sort of thing, possibly a blackhat forum. Good luck

      Hmmm good points but I think im gonna go with the flippa idea. Technically it's all legit and above board and in a way it creates a third party contract which is legally binding to sell and buy the facebook page as it is an 'inclusion' with the said blog. Best way I can think.

      I already have buyers in mind, just I want a third party to handle some aspect of the legal work without paying a lawyer $600 for his thoughts on the topic when he knows jack shit and then another $600 for him to write a letter to facebook and another $600 for him to write the contract.

    I you have an active audience then you can convert them into buyers so don't sell it.

    He may have reasons other than money for wanting to sell it. The advice to hold onto it and make money from it is kind of short-sighted. Maybe he lost interest in it and wants to sell it to finance something he's more passionate about. Or maybe the upkeep of the page is eating into the time he wants to be working on something else. Selling stuff like this isn't always about the money.
