Hi there,

I have a Facebook buy/sell group with over 25,000 members and 400/500 posts per day. I have an OSclass website of the same name, but in spite of anything I do, I can't get more than 1% of those ads to be published also in the OSClass website. Do you have any suggestion/trick/tip/plugin whatever that can help to drive traffic from a Facebook buy/sell group to an OSClass website?

Greetings

Yeah, Fb sales groups are making all classifieds sites go byebye.. it's a monster. No hope in doing this anymore I guess. I wish there's a solution to beat those groups.

I am using a lot smaller facebook group (with only 7k members) for buy & sell, but it is very specific. I am using group cover photo for advertise my classifieds site and post every new ad into this group (via dlvr.it).

You can also actually force users to post ads into your website first with locking group to "Only admins can post", and leave notification (via cover photo), that users can only post into this group if they publish ad into your website first, and than you will post it into your group for them.

In both ways, facebook groups are not our enemy if we are using them right. In my case, I got over 60% of visitors via FB. ;)

I tried something similar to that and a few users uploaded to the website, but most of them just moved to another group

It is not legal to copy ads FROM or TO Facebook.

Also i think about Facebook, you must deeply understand that you can't compete them. Accept it and move on with your site.

Stealing ads from or to some other website is not the way to go.
