How to Sell On the Internet

So you wanted to start selling something on the internet. That’s good as long as it’s within legal boundaries. People nowadays are opting to get jobs online or sell online because of the pandemic going on and they prefer to stay indoors to stay safe and be with their families. 

Next question you need to ask yourself is what are you selling? Is it goods or services? There are plenty of places where you can sell both. Here are some places where you can check. 

If You’re Selling Goods/Items, you may sell them on the following sites: 

  1. Amazon. You can sell your items through Amazon simply by registering and accepting their terms. They offer individual plan for citizens like you and me who plans to sell 40 items or less, and they also offer professional plan for those who plan on selling more than 40 items a month. 
  2. Shopify. Shopify is an all-in-one commerce platform that helps independent business owners sell online and in-person. I believe they can only offer free 7-day trial and then they charge you. The lowest fee they have is $29 per month inclusive of marketing, payments, secure checkout and shipping. This platform is very popular in the United States and a good choice for startup businesses. 
  3. – another popular platform to sell your stuff. You can also sell second-hand items like jewelry, clothing, and more. 

If you’re selling services, then these sites might be a good platform to check out: 

  1. – this site is a goldmine for people looking for services like internet marketing, graphic designing, songwriting, music composition, and many, many more! I myself had tried a few SEO services here for five bucks or bucks only. But the lower the price, the lower the quality or it may not be the results that you want so people opt for higher-priced services and would go for $20 or more. It’s a very good place to sell your services especially if you’re still starting and getting some experience.  

  2. -  formerly, this is actually an employment site where you can find employees to work for you or be a job finder and post your services and expertise online. Unlike Fiverr, Upwork offers security to its constituents by requesting down payment from employers just to make sure that employers are capable of paying their employees. Upwork also collect 10% from employees’ earnings and then later on becomes 5%, which is I believe how they earn. 

Business to Business (B2B) Platforms

For big businesses offering their products/services to other businesses, there’s also plenty of  marketing platforms for you and among them are the following: 

  1. Tackle offers a secure solution for scaling on Cloud Marketplaces. As stated in their website, whether you’re listing your software for the first time or looking to expand into a new Marketplace, Tackle’s first-to-market platform allows you to get started quickly and grow confidently with the leading Cloud Marketplace Providers.

  2. When I look up at B2B platforms, came up more than once and it was recommended by its users. According to their website, Cloudlead is a US-based B2B data company with a vision to empower all sales and marketing professionals with the best data. They provide lead generation for companies to help alleviate sales and profit. 

These are only among hundreds or thousands of platforms available online. I just gave the names that are more popular nowadays, but you are free to explore other platforms that you wish to use. Have you tried one of the websites listed above? Kindly leave them in the comments below and let’s discuss.
