With so many opportunities on getting rich on the internet, it is easy to lose sight of the ones that have proven to be effective. Those are the ones that have a community support group that provides ongoing help to the market they serve. What I am talking about is a flea market on the internet that anyone can set up. If you ever had a garage sale or know anyone who has, why not partner with them to launch one your own. It is easier now than before.
Community Support For Online Flea Market Vendors Is The Key To Success
When was the last time you got involved with an online business opportunity only to find out that there is no support for their members? This is a big problem for a lot of online business owners especially the newbies with practically no internet marketing experience at all when it comes to learning how to get rich online. Setting up the business online by way of a website is only part of the equation. Your customers need to know that you exist. You need traffic to your flea market website. Without it, you are fishing without bait.
The great thing about launching a flea market online is that there are literally tons of vendors from many different niche markets that have gotten together to create a social networking community with its intended purpose to serve their members.
Let’s say you are in the candle business. The flea market community will actually help you get your business in their listings for more exposure. They even provide all the marketing tools that you can use to leverage the power of the internet to get traffic to your website.
What About Marketing Your Business On eBay And Craigslist?
There is nothing wrong with that approach. Let me remind you that competition is really fierce due to the fact that eBay and Craigslist encompasses an increasingly wide range of market niches in so many different categories that is difficult to keep up with. For example, jobs, real estate, businesses, housing, services, and etc. None of these pertain to selling flea market items.
Despite the fact that Craigslist and eBay gets over 4 billion page views a month, you are better off finding a tighter niche market with less competing traffic to serve your market more effectively and efficiently. By having your store listed in a community website that is focused on selling the typical stuff found in local flea markets, you have a better chance of being found because shoppers go there for one purpose only: to buy something from you that they want.
Building Long Lasting Relationships Has Always Been The Proven Formula For Online Flea Market Success
If you have gone to one in your local area, how often do you visit the same booth of the person who sold you some great stuff. That is the beauty of doing business at a flea market. Not exactly a way to get rich compared to online.
Have you ever been to festivals in your area? Street vendors make tons of money selling stuff ranging from used merchandise, products, and food. People who frequent these festivals are in the buying frame of mind. And many vendors have branded themselves successfully by being there every single year for that particular event, capitalizing on the repeat business from former customers.
Now just imagine how powerful this concept alone can be if it is applied to the online world? The strong sense of community is established very easily through forum discussions on a wide range of topics pertaining to stuff sold in flea markets. Vendors participating in these discussions always get a sizable amount of traffic to their website resulting in massive sales of products.
