    Hello all

    I've been making knives for a few years and I think now, I'd like to try and start selling them (there's a baby on the way!) Ive heard that instragram is a great way to get things out there, so I've started an account and now Im kind of stuck at 100 followers

    I was wondering if I could ask your advice about the best ways of selling knives on social media...

    Is it true that you can put £ and $ signs on instragram... I think you are not aloud to openly sell knives on Facebook????

    Any advice would be really appreciated!

    hey James, I've sold a few knives through Instagram and I have used their shopping facility. You have to have a business account and link it to a Facebook page. It works pretty well, but as you say Facebook can be a little difficult. I make purely culinary knives and have had a couple blocked by FB where others have been allowed no problem.

    I would recommend you using instagram, everyone sells stuff here, starting with diapers, ending with knives. I've been selling clothes for 5 years on IG and it's cool they invent such things as bots to make the process easier. Like this one https://zen-promo.com/instagram_analytic It can show you popular hashtags in your city, statistics, amount of likes and comments for a period of time etc etc etc. Very useful, without it selling on IG would be much harder.
