The crazy thing about being an entrepreneur these days, is that there’s so many powerful ways you can list and sell your products.
I propose to you, that there’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur.
And it doesn’t even matter what you’re selling.
You can be selling physical products, digital products, e-courses, or even baked cookies, the timing has never been better, and it’s never been easier to sell your products.
So, in this blog post, I’m going to list 7 powerful ways that anyone, and that means how YOU can sell your products online.
How You Can Easily Sell Your Digital Online Courses On Udemy, SkillShare, Teachable Or SkillSuccess
There’s never been a better time to be an online teacher.
As someone who has launched 25+ different courses, and enrolled well over 10,000 students, I can’t really believe how easy it is to get your course content out there.
And the funny part is that, you don’t even have to be the biggest expert in your industry to amass a massive list of students!
What I personally have done, is simply give away many thousands of copies of my online courses.
You might be thinking, “But Mike, Dude, why the heck would you give away countless THOUSANDS of copies of your courses?”.
The answer is simple really; the more courses you can give away for free, the easier it’s going to be to PROVE that you have teaching chops.
Nobody wants to be the first student to enroll in your course, which is why giving away courses might be a genius move.
See, my courses now rank moderately well, and I also have a ton of reviews.
I’ve also been able to build my email list simply by giving away courses for free.
But, the point is that, there are so many powerful e-learning platforms out there where you can quickly launch your online course.
Udemy, SkillShare, SkillSuccess, and Teachable are my top 4 learning platforms, and as long as you have a desire to share your knowledge with the world, then you’ll probably have a TON of fun listing your online courses, and sharing them with the world.
How You Can Sell Your Digital Products On ClickBank
ClickBank is one of the biggest digital marketplaces on the face of the planet.
So if you have any books, courses, downloads, templates, or any other digital content, then listing your product on ClickBank is totally a stroke of genius.
The reason why this is so tremendously powerful, is because ClickBank has a “built in” army of super affiliates, who are seemingly always looking for more digital products to promote.
Of course, simply listing on ClickBank doesn’t guarantee that anyone will ever promote your stuff.
But it DOES guarantee that you’ll have massive potential, and the more you try to pitch your affiliate program on ClickBank, the more chances you’ll have to get some eyeballs on your content.
How You Can Sell Your Coaching Offers Using ClickFunnels
If you’re a coach or a consultant, one of the best things you can do is have your own webinar marketing funnel.
Webinar marketing is tremendously powerful, because a webinar funnel acts as a lead generation tool, as a tool to teach and share awesome content, and also as a mechanism upon which to actually SELL your products.
ClickFunnels is one of my favorite tools period, because it allows you to generate leads, sell your products, and also deliver your products.
The best part is that there are tons of “done for you” templates that you can use within ClickFunnels, allowing you to deploy an awesome marketing campaign using simple drag and drop tools.
How You Can Sell Your Digital Products Or Courses With ClickFunnels
If you want to launch courses on your own platform, while building your own email list, and even having your own independent affiliate program, then ClickFunnels is my favorite option.
ClickFunnels can also allow you to launch your other digital products, and even fully fledged video courses. And you can also launch physical products with ClickFunnels too, so it’s a very powerful sales tool.
So if you’ve ever been frustrated because you want to launch your own digital products, or your own courses, WITHOUT needing to rely on a third party marketplace, then I can’t recommend ClickFunnels enough.
The main reason this is advantageous is because when you launch your own courses on your own platform, you retain full control.
How You Can Sell Your Physical Products Using Shopify
ClickFunnels can allow you to sell your physical products, but Shopify is better if you have many (hundreds or even thousands) of products.
If you have many physical products, then Shopify might be your best option to sell online.
Of course, another ridiculously powerful option these days is your ability to sell your physical products right on Amazon, using “fullfilment by amazon”.
Shopify is slightly different, in that you can develop your own independent store using Shopify.
Shopify is perfect if you have many physical products, and you can easily setup your own store ready to accept orders without being a PhD in computer science (lol) or a master of marketing.
Two Easy Ways To Start Your Own Affiliate Program
Starting your own affiliate program can be one of the most exciting things that you can do as an entrepreneur.
The main reason this might be genius, is because you can then get other people to promote your products for a cut of the sales.
To be honest, there are so many different ways you can start your own affiliate program these days.
Two of my favorite ways, are with ClickBank, or ClickFunnels.
Simply by listing your own product on ClickBank, you’ll automatically be able to have affiliates promote your products for a percentage of the commissions. There’s absolutely no tech skills required.
Moreover, when you launch on ClickBank, your product will automatically be listed in the ClickBank marketplace, so you can help to get eyeballs on your offers
If you want to get more control over your affiliate program, then ClickFunnels also makes it super easy to start your own affiliate program.
You’ll have your own statistics, registration forms, and trackable data so you can see how your affiliates are performing, and also plenty of tools so you can promote your affiliate offer.
How To Sell Your Products Using JVZoo Or WarriorPlus
JVZoo and WarriorPlus are two other powerful marketplaces where you can list your products.
To be honest, and in my opinion, the majority of the programs listed on these marketplaces are in the “internet marketing” niche, so if you want to launch products in this space, then checkingout these marketplaces is definitely at least worth checking out.
Just a note, I’m not saying that these products are SOLELY internet marketing niche related, however, if you check out their top selling products, you’ll probably find that they’re mostly in the internet marketing arena.
Another advantage of selling your products on JVZoo and WarriorPlus, is that there is a “built in” affiliate network, so your products have the potential to be seen by different affiliates who are looking for cool stuff to promote. You can determine the commission structure, and decide what kind of cut your affiliates get if they can successfully sell your stuff on either of these two platforms.
In Summary, Selling Online Has Never Been Easier!
To be brutally honest, this humble and paltry list is just scratching the surface regarding all the ways you can sell online.
And the funny part is that there are new marketplaces popping up left and right seemingly every day, all of which have their own little advantages and quirks.
The best advice I can give you, is to get EXCITED about all of your potential avenues to sell your products.
These days, it’s never been this exciting.
Thanks so much for checking this out.
If you have any comments, questions, or feedback, never hesitate to give me a buzz.
Talk later, and please have an awesome day!
