We’re delighted to announce the winner of the Sell on Facebook competition held through the month of September. We asked you (Wazala store owners) to show us your Facebook business pages and implementation of Wazala on Facebook for a chance to win a new iPad, a small prize compared to the return Facebook can achieve.
We judged the entries based on the tips and tricks mentioned in our Facebook Business Guide that takes you through all the steps in creating a page, to marketing your products and engaging your fans and capitalize on the power of reach within Facebook and truly understanding social commerce.

The response was more than we had hoped for. A big thank you goes out to all of you who participated. It was a tough call to make, but our winner proved to show their commitment and dedication in utilizing Facebook to market not just their products but their entire mission. Congratulations to Sole Hope.
Sole Hope offers HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief. Teaching shoemaking to women in Uganda with no means of income. They then pay the shoemakers a fair wage and give the shoes to children who have no closed toe shoes and are suffering from foot parasites. They also pair shoemaking with education around foot care and medical clinics to move forward a sustainable solution.
Their store is full of branded apparel and accessories to raise awareness as well as shoes that are sold with the “one for one” model of paying a widow to make a pair and give a pair to a child for each pair sold. A brilliant business model considering their non profit goals.
Their belief in the power of Facebook is evident on their Facebook page, and their well executed social selling strategy was the determining factor for their win. “Facebook has raised awareness and allowed us to spread across the U.S. at a rapid pace. The store inside our Facebook page is an easy “next step” and draws our fans directly to a place where they can make a huge impact for Sole Hope.” said their Executive Director, Dru Collie.
Congrats again to Sole Hope, but remember with the right tools to sell on Facebook and the knowledge we compiled in our Sellers Guide to Facebook, your business is also a winner!
