Business User - FAQ
Why can’t businesses post in the group?
We want to limit the amount of non-Buy and Sell posts in the group. We run a business, and we offer marketing services for our clients, if your a client you can post business post in the group as your actively helping keep the group free for personal users by allowing us the ability to pay our admin staff to manage the group 7 days a week..
Other groups let Businesses post as much as the like?
Many other groups don’t allow business posts at all, but yes many let you post all the time if you want. None of the other local groups is as big and long established as this group and we want to make it the best buy and sell group so we are limiting the number of businesses posts.

No problem, just register the FB usernames of who will be carrying out your promotions and they will all be counted under the same account for a total number of posts.
We run a local charity, are we considered a Business?
Not exactly, but we think local charities are very worthwhile causes (most them) and so offer you the ability to promote your events etc. for free in the group, we will assign each charity 6 posts per month for free, that will allow you to promote your events, etc. on a weekly basis. We recommend you use it to build up the audience to your own Facebook Page or Group for the Charity as then you will get a more target audience that you can promote events to more often, but it’s up to you.
