Got an idea for the next eBay, Amazon, Etsy, Uber but have no idea how to get it started? You've may have looked at Wordpress themes, scripts, shopping cart software and the cost of hiring coders and designers on UpWork to work out how to get started.

Is there an easier way?


If you can forgo some of the custom bells and whistles that custom coding provides (and forgo the 10x cost and 10x time commitment!) then you've found the right course and the right software to take your idea and planning from your head to launch.

This course will lead you step-by-step through the process of:

  • Choosing a domain name
  • Setting up email for your marketplace
  • Signing up with Sharetribe
  • Setting up your marketplace (using examples from a successful marketplace)

Even though this is a starter course, it provides the most comprehensive look at how you can set up your hosted marketplace. I welcome your feedback and look forward to helping you turn your idea into a beautiful, functioning marketplace website!
