Both companies can list in their newsletters, websites, online stores plus promote it to their clients in person at meetings, events or in retail locations!

3-Amazon, EBAY, Etsy or Other Sales Platforms

If you have any kind of product or service, an essential step in online sales is to check out the platforms where your product can be sold. There are of course, commissions and fees when your product sells online in other e-stores, but it’s another place for you to list and where you can potentially sell. These platforms are especially useful for products like e-books or audio training where the customer can simply download your product. Have a look around, there are tons of great places to sell items easily and quickly to large consumer bases looking for your product!
