After determining proper business models for your marketplace, it’s time to find an appropriate technical solution to build up the platform. To create an online marketplace, there are 3 popular options: writing the codes on your own, hiring a web professional team, or using WordPress software. Each choice has its own pros and cons, which will be discussed in this post to help you have a better decision.
To build a pricing strategy for your marketplace is not easy. What works for this marketplace might not work for the others. Many people may prefer high rate while others think a very low rate would be effective in attracting a lot of users to site. There’s no right or wrong answer since each marketplace has its own business strategy including pricing structure to remain competitive in the market while still being able to make profit out of it.
Commission fee is the most popular business model whose pricing structure is also complicated to determine. How much should you charge? Should it be a same flat rate for every transaction or the percentage of the total sum? Who will pay the bill? The buyers, the sellers, or both? There’s no correct formula for this but we will discuss important aspects to help you decide the pricing for your marketplace.
Whenever you install a WordPress blog, you will find that all of your posts are automatically being categorized as “uncategorized.” In case you forget to assign a post to a category, WordPress will publish it as “uncategorized” in default. That’s why there are a ton of posts listed as uncategorized if you don’t have in the habit of assigning the category for the post. It actually makes your site look unprofessional 😔
You can either choose the new category or rename this default category. (more…)
Whether you are a business owner or marketer, you have ever heard about Google Analytics and its benefits. This tool is the most website tracking service that allows you to collect data and get the insight you need to optimize your marketing campaign as well as boost up the revenue.
You will probably imagine that there are too many complicated steps to set up and integrate the tool into your web such as getting the tracking code, installing Google Analytics to your site, etc. But it’s much more simple than you think if your site is running our theme. That’s because Google Analytics is available in our themes, so you only need to insert the tracking code to the Google Analytics Script field. It only takes you 1 minutes to set up.
FreelanceEngine 1.8.1 has been updated its version hotfix. Some bugs such as social login, logo footer replacement, and PHP 7.x & SQL warning are resolved.
Business models (aka revenue models) define the way you operate and monetize your marketplace. Among different models, commission is the most profitable one for online marketplace as it allows you to “own” every buying-selling activity and earn a fee per transaction. That said, there is a lot of work to do for this commission model to succeed. Transaction value is one of the challenges. To make a sound commission fee and keep users on site for a long time, the value provided for both providers and buyers need to be great enough so that your users won’t try to bypass your system.
This post will suggest some ways you can practice to provide value for users on your marketplace (in the scope of a service marketplace).
