Social media is also useful for selling things. You could sell your own handmade items on your own page or in a group setting. Facebook also has a newer feature that lets you direct sell. Plus, business social sites, like LinkedIN, give you a great place to make contacts and look for work.

Start Selling Online

Social media isn’t the only place to sell online. Your choice in places to sell can depend on what types of items you are selling. If you make your own handmade products, places like Etsy and Amazon Handmade are going to be your best online options.

If you are selling some sort of general products, maybe items made in a factory, eBay and Amazon offer great outlets. If you sell services, and for everything else, you can also sell from our own website.

Use Blogging

Blogging not only can be made to become a monetary project, but it’s also a great way to introduce your readers to your products or services. Blogs are a way to show potential buyers and clients that you are an expert in your field.

You can also sell ad space on your blog if it’s a popular blog.

Promote The Heck Out Of Yourself

Just posting items online for sale isn’t necessarily going to sell them.You need to promote your stuff. Promote to friends, promote beyond friends. Guest posts with other bloggers is one way to attract people to your stuff.

The same goes for job hunting online. A resume is a good start at promoting yourself, but you can go farther than that by setting up an online portfolio so that you have work and samples to show potential employers. And, make sure you make your portfolio as visible, and easy to read, as possible.
