    I’ve noticed a lot of people selling products through their facebook pages (by way of send me your requirements and ill make it up for you) all under a blanket common theme. I’d like to create an e-business that consolidates all these small business’ and is a platform for people to browse all the different products rather than having to search for them individually. I’m wondering how I coulld best monetize this considering most don’t have websites or online checkouts?

    Hi and thanks for joining the forums. Your idea sounds like an interesting one – a bit Etsy like – let”s see what the community make of it!

    I agree with Robert – check out Etsy and Handmade as they offer this type of platform.

    If you are a web designer it will be easier for you but if you have to pay someone it may be an expensive exercise.

    Looking forward to hearing more.

    Yes similar to etsy however as has been mentioned may be costly to set up. The other plan is to targetthe ones that do have websites and I have a host site that advertises their products. My page links back to theirs which pays me $ per click for traffic directrd to their site. I know this a very common tool. What is the process for setting this up for the vendors on my site? Is it much work for them? I can sense an apprehensiveness towards this when they could kust sell on their own website.
    The other thing to do would be to encourage vendors that don’t ha e a proper website/ecommerce facility set up to get one set up then they can advertise on my site
    Interested to hear your thoughts
