Why a Viking? Because many early merchants were Vikings! As founder of MyNewMarketplace.com, I’m proud of my Viking heritage and look forward to sharing selections from “The Vikings’ Guide to Good Business.” The Vikings established business practices that are still useful today and will be invaluable when you explore and use MyNewMarketplace.

Here’s the first tip: Be cautious and honorable. When you go to your room, inspect your goods so they do not later suffer flaws, which will be attributed to you. But if your goods become flowed and you sell them, never conceal this from the buyer. Show him the flaws and then strike your bargain as you can. Then you will not be called a fraud.

In addition to sharing sales and marketing tips with you, I look forward to your comments, tips and recommendations for this exciting new online marketplace.

So, how did I start this new endeavor? Actually, the idea came to me more than five years ago, but it took several major challenges before I decided now is the time to bring this idea to fruition.

With the help of local businesses in Michigan including Essential IT, JCI Design and Margaux & Associates, we developed the first several steps in the evolution of MyNewMarketplace.com. And I feel very good about the results. We are not an eBay or Craigslist. We are a marketplace or an “eBay without an auction” and a “Craigslist without the creeps.” Now our task is to let people know that they have an alternative to other sites.

With MyNewMarketplace.com, classified ads range from a low of $2 to $15. For example, a computer ad would be $3 while an ad for a vehicle costs $14.

One of the first questions is why isn’t it free to advertise while other sites are free.
Nothing is free. Each site in cyberspace needs revenue to survive. eBay charges both for placing an ad and a percentage of each item you sell. In addition, PayPal, which is owned by eBay, takes its part if you use it. Craigslist charges for job ads in larger cities, up to $75 per advertisement. Others charge when you place an ad, and then charge you more if you want to be placed higher on the list.

Have you suddenly received “offers” and spam after using a classified? Some sites sell your information. We will never sell your information and you’ll never be surprised when it’s time to finalize your ad. The cost is upfront and it’s transparent.

So take a look around MyNewMarketplace.com and see how you can get results at a low price.

I would appreciate your comments and ideas about how we can better serve your needs and make it easier to use MyNewMarketplace.com
