Where to Sell your Websites & Designs

Whether you are looking at just making a little extra cash on the side or what to be come a full-time freelance designer, these sites are a great place to start.

I’ve been selling designs & themes online for around 8 years and there are more and more marketplaces coming online each year.  Something they all have in common is a fee or percentage of commission, because hey they need to make money too. So keep that in mind when pricing your items.

Digital Goods Marketplaces for designers

My Experience:

Themeforest has been my MarketPlace of choice over the past 8 years, although it is getting tougher to make a sale because of the amount of Authors on there. They do have massive traffic, so if your work is excellent and you can stand out from the crowd, you can still make money through ThemeForest.

Another out-side-the-box idea is selling your items on ebay. I think selling items people can use for special events would be successful, like childrens party invitations, wedding stationary, photo album pages etc.

  • Fee per listing

My Experience:

I already knew how to use ebay so that was helpful.  I couldn’t find a way to Automatically send the digital file after purchase, so this is still a manual process.

Summary

There you go, a whole bunch of sites I”m personally selling digital items on. So start uploading your files, and making sales, it doesn’t matter how small or simple your project is, someone may need it. Happy Selling!
