Facebook is King When it Comes to Pop! Collecting
This week Rick and Piper continue the Novice series by discussing how Pop! collectors can leverage Facebook to the maximum, as it relates to building your Pop! Collection. They also discuss both of their LONG lists of pickups this week, how running contests can get you in trouble, the PCA’s own shipping problems, and using subliminal messaging to build an audience. The episode closes with the Novice Series Vol 5: Navigating Facebook to Build your Pop! Collection and close with a BIG thank you! to all of the Pop Collectors Alliance members. Join us next week when we take a break from the Novices series and have some serious fun.

Use Small Groups to Build a Better Community
Smaller groups are great especially if you have active Admin. You should really think about joining the PCA group if you haven’t already! (Hint) (Hint)
Leverage Larger Groups to Obtain Harder to Find Pop!
There is just more to choose from sometimes in larger groups especially if they are spread across a larger area. Use these groups to find deals and trusted people to get some harder to find items.
Validate a Group’s Reputation
Make sure any group you decide to join has at a minimum these qualities:
- Active Admin
- Pinned Posts for Rules
- A Rating / Review System for Buyers and Sellers
- A Group of Collectors that aren’t just Trolling Everyone or Making a Toxic Environment
- Collectors Helping Collectors
Local Pickup vs Shipment
If at all possible try and find as many items local as possible. This could drive better deals and negotiations, eliminate shipment damage, and a better sense of security when purchasing from someone.
