Did you know we recently launched a new Marketplace here at Small Business Trends? It’s brand spanking new — and there’s a way for you to be part of it. We’re holding a webinar  this Thursday to tell you all about it.
What is the Marketplace?
The Marketplace  is a special section of Small Business Trends set aside just for commerce. It’s open to community members like you to sell your digital products (such as software, templates, guides and ebooks). It’s also a good place to market your professional services.
In the past we’ve been asked many many times to help promote community members’ information products and services. Until now we’ve never had a mechanism to help you do that properly. Sure, we offer display advertising. But advertising is an expensive way to promote ebooks or to offer a special discount or promotion for your professional services.
Now, with the Marketplace, we have a viable option for you.
Here’s how the Marketplace can help you. By participating in the Marketplace you can get a presence on Small Business Trends specifically for your products and services. We partnered with Meylah.com to use the Meylah e-commerce platform. You’ll be able to offer digital information products and software, and offer discount coupons and special promotions for your services.
Details About the Educational Webinar
Here at Small Business Trends we reach many millions of small business owners every year. We focus exclusively on small businesses. We obsess over small business. That’s our sole focus. We want to help you serve this considerable market.
Selling digital products is a huge opportunity for professionals who market to small businesses. The key to success is to focus on a specific customer pain point or need.
We will talk about how to narrow your focus … to actually expand your market reach. We’ll have specific tips and advice. We’ll answer your questions in plain language.
I am excited to be joined by Chaitra Dutt, Chief Marketing Officer of Meylah, and Tim Adam, the founder of Handmadeology.com. Both will share what they’ve found works extraordinarily well when selling digital goods and professional services using the Meylah platform that the Small Business Trends Marketplace is built on.
There’s no hard sell in this event. It’s pure education.
