We can create a photo album with the last pieces of the spring collection-for instance silly-but we can not sell them. has tried many ways to monetize the platform through independent ways of advertising, such as with Facebook Credits, without much success. Some pilot tests were successful but not popular.

We can not sell for Facebook, well. But this does not mean we can not use all the tools offered by the platform to give a monetary benefit to our customers and bring the digital world of social networks to purchase tangible world. It’s something that may be missing. We always say that a lot of engagement depends on what you have to offer to users: contests, promotions, are critical to maintaining a successful Facebook page.
