E-commerce – 5 Things You Can Sell on Your Website

Internet marketing

If you have a website or a blog then it is a good idea to monetise it once you have a steady stream of visitors. There are many great ways to monetise a website but one of the most fun ways to do it is to start selling something on your website.

Here are five great ideas that you can sell and earn some extra money.


1. Your Services And Skills

If you are very good at something, whether it is writing, drawing or even programming you can use your own website to sell your services.


Instead of just using freelancing sites it is very good idea to use your personal website for marketing purposes and make sure that people who require your skills can contact you directly.


2. Art

If you are very artistic and you love to create things then selling your own artwork through your website is a really great idea. You can even start taking commission work if you are really successful.


There are a lot of good guides to selling your own artwork and it is a good idea to read these through before you get started.


3. Old Books And CDs

If you have a solid following you might also want to start selling old books and CDs. You might find it a lot more joyous then just listing your items on Ebay and it can give you a lot closer connection to your readers.


Perhaps you even want to start trading books and CDs rather than selling them and this can be really nice way of communicating with your readers as well.


4. T-Shirts And Other Fabrics

You could also make a few t-shirts and scarfs to which you’ve added your website address and perhaps a logo that you have designed as well. This is especially good if you really want to brand your website and people wearing your t-shirts will help you market your product very effectively.


Now there are many ways to go about printing out your logo on t-shirts but one of the most viable options you should look into is digital printing. Digital printing on fabric is really cost effective and green way to print and there are many companies out there able to help you out. Check out companies such as Silverfox Legal to find out more about this option.


5. Your Own E-Book

If you are passionate about writing then it might be a good idea to write an e-book. This option also works quite well with professionals who want to earn some money. For instance, if you have a legal blog you might want to write a short e-book helping people manage the legal aspect of divorce.


You can even write a humour book or just collect your best blog posts together. There are countless topics for a book and there’s a lot of good places to learn more about writing an e-book and selling it on your website.


The above five things are just some of the things you could sell on your website. You can use online tools like Shopify to set up a store on your website and earn some money.
