Name one great marketplace for people who want to launch side hustles selling their products or services.

GetHired.com for side jobs
“I recently came across GetHired.com and love some of the functionality they included, like the ability to record a video or audio introduction for your profile. You can also schedule interviews through the site, streamlining the process for candidates and hiring managers alike.”

Kelly Azevedo | Founder, She’s Got Systems

Flippa for websites
“If you want to sell products, more specifically websites, Flippa is a huge marketplace for doing so. It can be a very rewarding side business.”

Ben Lang | Founder, Mapped In Israel

eBay LISTS EVERYTHING
eBay allows you to reach a very large market place for testing new products. Given the way eBay works, you can even create multiple variations of your product listings to sell at different price points and marketing features to see how your product is perceived by the market.”

Raul Pla | CEO and Founder, SimpleWifi and UseABoat

Gumroad sells everywhere
“While Gumroad is not a marketplace, it makes selling digital things really easy. Upload your file, write a description and set the price and you have embeddable sales forms in seconds where you can sell on social media, blogs or just about anywhere.”

Nathan Lustig | co-founder, Entrustet

Try out Fiverr
Fiverr is a great marketplace where you can hire people to do things for five bucks. It’s great on both sides of the coin! This is also a good site for entrepreneurs who need to outsource non-crucial or unusual projects.”

Nicolas Gremion | CEO, Free-eBooks.com

99designs for design
“The latest one I’ve really found fascinating is 99designs. There are super talented people on that site that meet branding, merchandising and design needs. Also, it’s cost-effective and quick, which is great for entrepreneurs.”Jordan Guernsey | CEO, Molding Box

Craigslist is still cool
“Even though many new marketplaces are popping up, Craigslist is still one of the best places to list products or services. It has millions of visitors and is used by those who may not be familiar with newer sites such as Etsy and oDesk.”

Bhavin Parikh | CEO, Magoosh Test Prep

ODESK FOR AUTOMATION
“oDesk is a great marketplace for services. If you have found a great way to automate or streamline an in-demand process, you can sell that for a service and do it very well.”

Aaron Schwartz | Founder and CEO, Modify Watches

Envato’s many marketplaces
“I’m a fan of Envato marketplaces—VideoHive, AudioJungle, ThemeForest—a place to market and sell and digital media that you create. Envato offers a great opportunity for freelance musicians, programmers, videographers and other creatives to sell their products without the expense of a full-scale web marketing effort.”

Nick Reese | CEO, Elite Health Blends

Folio FOR CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS
“New York-based Folio is the online marketplace of choice for designers and creative professionals, and also features a handy desktop application.”
