2. Shopify


If you have been around the eCommerce industry for a while now, then you have probably heard about Shopify.


Shopify is the best option if you want to create an online store fast, integrate dropshipping, and reach a wider audience.


With Shopify, you get to have your own website with your preferred domain name --- or shall I say website name.


What’s good with Shopify is they are dedicated to building eCommerce stores which allows you to create your own eCommerce website even without coding and designing skills.


What’s more, is that they partnered with the best dropshipping suppliers allowing you to automate product listings and freeing you from the burden of product inventory.


Another thing you will look forward to is its ability to promote and sell your products on various channels like Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, TikTok, Etsy, Amazon, and Walmart.


3. eBay


Being the original online selling website founded in 1995, eBay is still a good choice for selling your products. You can sell almost anything on eBay, even secondhand goods. It also has a wider market just like Amazon.


The downside of selling on eBay though is its selling fees. They charge a non-refundable fee to list your item and there’s another “insertion” fee.


If you plan to sell on eBay, it’s best you check first their policies so as not to run out of your business budget, especially if you are just starting out.


4. Etsy


Do you know Etsy? Well, you should check it by now, especially if you are into handmade goods, arts, collectibles, antiques, and even digital products. Yes, digital products.


Apart from creating your own website, Etsy is the best option to sell your digital products especially if you do not know how to create your own website and if you don’t have a big budget.


With Etsy, you can list your item for only $0.20. That’s only around 10 pesos here in the Philippines and you can have it listed there for four months or until the item sells. When you successfully sell an item, the transaction fee is also lower which is only 5% plus around $0.25 processing fee.


If you are just starting out and want to sell to a wider market, Etsy is definitely the best choice.


5. YouTube


You might be wondering why YouTube is included, but it is actually one of the greatest platforms out there that you can use to promote your products or services. While it does not allow you to add an online shop, Youtube allows you to promote your products in the form of videos with links in the description section for the viewer to click.


While YouTube mainly focuses on videos, it is a good platform to promote your products in the form of reviews.


Affiliate links also work well on YouTube. If you’re the type who doesn’t want to hold inventory and want to earn little commissions from Affiliate Links, then YouTube can be a good option even if you do not have a huge following yet.


6. Facebook


Not everyone loves Facebook, but it’s undeniably one of the biggest social media platforms ever existed with roughly 2.89 billion active users monthly as of the second quarter this year according to Statista.


While its original purpose was to mainly connect Harvard students with one another, Facebook has evolved into one of the leading sites around the world to date.


Not only is Facebook connecting people around the globe, but they have also set up a marketplace and even allows users to create Facebook pages to promote their products or services.


Aside from Facebook marketplaces and pages, Facebook groups have also become one of the greatest avenues to promote a brand.


While pages allow you to add a shop for your page, marketplaces and groups allow you to immediately list your products -- and it’s for FREE.


It’s high time you try creating a Facebook page or group to promote your products, even those from your official website or simply an affiliate link.


7. Instagram


If you have not explored Instagram yet, it’s high time you check the platform. Being a visual platform, Instagram is a perfect site to promote your products and services.
