Online store builders (platforms)
There are many websites in the online market who have become platforms for selling products online for people who don’t want to open a website or a simply unable to do so. I’m sure all of you have heard of eBay or Amazon and a great deal of you have either sold or bought different products from these websites. These websites are known as online selling platforms or online store builders.
If your funds are on the lower end or you just don’t want to invest in creating an online store, setting up an online store on one of these platforms can be a cheap and effective way towards developing your business online. In exchange for a small fee, you can freely set up an online store under their umbrella and sell products online to a huge audience. Getting the exposure from these websites is substantially beneficial to the number of products you will be able to sell.
Start your own blog
Blogging has steadily made its way to becoming a leader when it comes to product promotion in the online market. Because of how easy it is to create blogs, many have turned to blogging as their way to sell products online and to represent who they are and what they do.
Unlike the selling platforms or hosting websites, blogging comes with minimal expenses and the possibility of making a substantial amount of profit. By registering your business online on Google AdSense, you can get paid for having different adverts on your blog. The amount of money you will receive depends on the amount of traffic your blog will attract and the number of clicks on the advertisement.
Besides, it’s a great way to get yourself out there and get the word out on your products, especially if you’re making different crafts such as fashion accessories, home décor, different types of art or similar things that require having a sized audience to represent yourself to and spread the word for you.
There are many other things you can try out – freelancing, holding classes or doing researches. The possibilities for selling online are immense, but online store builders and blogging seem to have made and solidified their top positions for selling products without a website.
