SELL YOUR PRODUCTS - MARKETPLACES To Sell On 2021

The ability to sell your products successfully relies on understanding who your target audience is and just as important, where to find them.  There are many options from a free standing website, social media platforms, and marketplaces.  

At times finding marketplaces to sell on is a different story.  This article will help you find other marketplaces that may be worth checking out

One advantage of marketplaces is you gain value from their marketing expenditure to bring people to the marketplace to shop.  

However, what many sellers overlook is just because there is a lot of traffic, it doesn't mean that is the best place or most cost effective place to target their audience.  

Some of the smaller hardcore niche marketplaces offer quite the targeted audience gathering spot, if it is your niche.

Be careful where you sell.  Sometimes you are indirect competition with the marketplace owners such as on Amazon.  Be sure to thoroughly research these.  

Take into consideration the implications of import/export fees prior to selling on any site in another country.

Listed below is a small sample of the different marketplaces available all over the world. We maintain a list of over 165 different niche sites around the world.
