What can I sell online?
So chances are that if you landed on this page you’re wondering what you can sell online.
The options to sell online are countless! The first step is to figure out whether you want to sell an existing product, or create one. The second step is to setup a sales platform – read below for help with both!
If you are going with an existing product the next step is to choose your niche and find a supplier that you have had great experiences with. Having real life experience with both those products and people is important so that you can be confident you are selling an item of value to your target market. Additionally, you will may still be the middleman that needs to deal with clients when supply and demand aren’t matching up so it is important to believe in the product and company producing it.
If you choose to create a product you still have a few options within that category. This could mean creating an internet based product like an ebook, electronic magazine or digital cue cards among other things. On the flipside, it could also mean entirely creating your own new product by hand, outsourcing the product development to a larger company that is able to make what you want to sell, or modifying an existing product such as mugs with your own design on them. Depending on which route you choose to go you could end up very involved with many aspects of production, or simply making a one time document that can be sold and dispersed accordingly.
With so many options when it comes to selling online we recommend you spend some time doing your research first! It pays off in the end to be well educated prior to jumping right in.
In addition to a lot of free tutorials many places also offer website hosting and search engine tools to help build your brand!
Hi there, in this digital age it is indeed possible to sell almost anything online. And with so many more people wanting to work from home, there are more people shopping online as well. Creating an ebook or an online course is a great way of selling your own products online.
But not everybody can create their own products, and that is when affiliate marketing is awesome. You can recommend somebody else’s products, and earn commission on the sales, without actually having to carry inventory or do the shipping yourself. All the best.
Thanks for the input Line. That is a great suggestion for people that aren’t interested in creating their own product. While the profit margin/sale may be lower with affiliate marketing in some cases it is easier to get several more referrals and sales that add up to a similar profit :). This is why you will see a few affiliate links to WA on our site, while they primarily focus on affiliate marketing it is a great internet marketing and website creation training set overall! https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/createaccount?a_aid=2a4ad26d
