    Hello, just a quick question... I am in the beginning stages of my product selling venture, have been doing research for the last couple months and manage to sell 2 thru the forums(By means of PM to people who express interest in buying;)). The part where I'm getting lost is how can i market it to more people and get more sales. Been considering on social media marketing or making a eCommerce Website to help sell the bikes.(would prefer to focus on a method 1st and get better with it)

    Any Suggestion on what should i start with?These are what I have done.

    1) Find your product(Product)
    2) Source your product, make manufacturer connections(Found a local supplier)
    3) Tried selling on cycling forums(2 sale up to present)
    4) Reading up on ways to expand and get more sales(Social media marketing or eCommerce website)
    5) Looking for suggestion and advice(Reason I'm starting this thread)

    Is there anything that I'm missing?
    Suggestion or Advice will be appreciated!

    Will be updating this thread on what has been done.

    Thanks!!

    btw its not always good to share what your planning to market as it could increase the competition or make it harder for you if people start marketing it too...but other than that i would recommend putting some more efforts in social media since nowadays people keep up to that alot...im a beginner myself but that's my 2 cents.

    Found a similar competitor site, going to analyze and learn from there.Seems like they are using a website and promoting it through facebook only.
