Selling products on e-commerce platforms
It seems to be a very popular idea for many local and small businesses. Before the Internet, you can sell your product mainly locally if you have a local shop. When Amazon, eBay, and Poland Allegro started operating, even local shops can sell products in their own city and globally. You have access to a huge number of Customers. Your role is to optimize your profile for visitors’ best feelings.
Selling products on advertising portal
This point required some research, depending on your Country of residence advertising portal could you famous. Sometimes, when you want to sell something and your business isn’t big enough to scale your operation countrywide or worldwide, an advertising portal is a better or cheaper solution for you.
You can also check smaller e-Commerce platforms dedicated to your Topic like e-Commerce for creating and selling your own clothes with your printing on them.
Use a Social Media platform for Business Activity
If you are a “Social Person” and you feel the best within social media profiles. You should consider creating a profile for your business on one of the Social Media. Which one? It is depending on your business. For many of them, where the best working some pictures or short videos Instagram seems to be a perfect choice. If bigger video formats are required please consider creating Youtube Channel. Of course, the most popular choice is Facebook Fan Page.
Not always an obvious choice can be creating a Facebook group for your Customers. Please consider creating one.
