Why digital business needs marketplace?
People can argue about the pros and cons of use supermarkets or small stores. But you can't disagree that in many countries supermarkets are winning this war and have a huge pressure on bakeries, groceries, butcheries and etc. Commerce is already on rails and it is spreading. It's developing an individual approach right now and when this process would be finished, small stores will become as the steak - rare. Why we're talking about it?

Business needs to evolve to stay in-game and be worthy. Shops and markets found a way to become more useful and comfortable for their customers.

Who needs marketplaces right now?
So, who is the next "dairy" in the digital world? Who can be saved by the implementation of the marketplaces? Fine examples of those are products or services which lost their position in the niche or trying to take root in one.

Database creators
Databases with warm leads, investors or hot vacancies and CVs are worth attention. But to be noticed many of their creators had to be creative. They even try to promote themselves with ProductHunt.

Information business
Stimulating customers to stay subscripted pushes makers to be creative and agile. Tools for makers shouldn't limit them strictly.

Subscription boxes

This business is simple on paper, but in fact, it needs close monitoring. Organizing contacts with suppliers, receiving requests and handling everything requires a structured and well-developed approach.

Magazines, newspapers and other classical media types
Old-fashioned information sources are tending to lose their audience. Even digitizing wasn't a solution. People prefer to read the news on Instagram and Twitter due to the delivery speed and clarity of content.
Marketplace options
Building own marketplace

Many people think about running their own marketplace. Is this idea as brilliant as it may appear at first sight?
  • starting a marketplace requires a solid amount of money to develop it. The marketplace with basic functionality will cost you $80K.
  • support and changes in the web-site are needed to stay competitive and generate benefits. If you won't invest money in these processes - the marketplace will remain a fifth wheel.
  • every website needs promotion. Online marketplace isn't the exception. It requires constant work on SEO, advertising and content.
Running an e-commerce web-site for your own digital goods is a risky choice and it needs constant attention, spends a lot of money and in fact, is a different business with its own requirement.

Using famous one

This option is better then developing a marketplace for yourself. It significantly cheaper and can give you an opportunity to promote your product to the masses. But it always has a "but".
To have good sales you need to be trustworthy. People tend to ignore products without reviews. To have those you need to be either very convenient in your advertising and but some reviews. Don't forget about inner SEO for those websites to be on top of the search results.
