Shopify even offers Messenger store in which customer can access and buy your products directly through Facebook messenger.

2. Facebook apps 

Depending on the type of business you run, facebook apps can boost sales by 10-100%.

Let me give you an example: if you are selling photobooks online, create a mini fb app that creates a virtual photobook of all the user photos in fb and shows it in the form of small  engaging video,give the brand name in cover and a link to your site in the end.

Promote app through your own fb page or other famous fb pages.

An idea is what you need to promote your business through fb apps.

3. Viral baits

 Viral baits are of two types, 
  • Viral comment 
  • Viral posts

Viral comments are the ones in which users are told to comment a link, so that he/she can see something personal in the link or the thumbnail/preview of links. In this way the site gets lot of traffic from fb, using this in the right way can bring conversions too. This tactic is usually done to get clicks on Adsense ads by pulbishers and to get good social signals.

Viral posts are similar to viral comments but are Posted by fb page rather than by the user. Viral posts can also be normal click baits in which the preview image and title are selected in such a way that user will click on it to avoid rethinking later.

Viral baits are to be used rarely and in right manner, otherwise it could largely damage the brand value.
