Where to find online marketplace owners in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Online Marketplace Owners

Online Marketplace Owners want to attract more sellers and increase product variety. However, they can't get it because they struggle to differentiate their marketplace from competitors.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. SellerHub.

Online Marketplace Seller Management Platform : A comprehensive platform that helps online marketplace owners manage and attract sellers effectively. Of course it is much better than the stuff from Shopify Marketplace, or BigCommerce!

How to find Online Marketplace Owners

You can get insights about the pain points of online marketplace owners if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where online marketplace owners hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of online marketplace owners, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Online Marketplace Seller Management Platform.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.
