Are a great way to kick off whatever you want to do.
They're also great for increasing exposure.
No matter what you do.
There are hundreds of marketplaces out there.
For selling stuff online.
For offering services.
For hand made stuff.
For self publishing books.
And on and on and on.
But the problem with every marketplace is that over time more and more people realize how convenient it is to just wait for clients, buyers and customers to show up at no extra cost.
So they get crowded very fast. Too crowded.
So the offer gets bigger than the demand. A lot bigger.
And as a result prices race to the bottom.
And competition gets fiercer and fiercer.
Until no one can really make a decent living anymore.
This holds true for pretty much every marketplace.
Amazon, Fiverr, Facebook, Udemy, Ebay, Twitter, 99 Designs and on and on and on.
So what can you do to not get crushed by the race to the bottom?
Well, the first step would be to realize that you're about to get crushed.
The second step would be to diversify and spread your risk across different marketplaces.
And the third step would be to build your own platform by leveraging all of the existing marketplaces.
A platform that only you control.
And no one else...
