How a simple bike classifieds site evolved into Marketplacer
I thought when it came to online shopping, the Amazons of the world got all the business. But what I found while researching today’s guest is that there are niche marketplaces where people drive their tribe. Because people only want to buy from those sites, these marketplaces are thriving.
Today’s guest is one of the entrepreneurs who helped build this kind of business. Jason Wyatt is the founder of Marketplaces which brings tribes together to shop in new ways.
They’ve also created a platform where other businesses can use their software and know-how to create their own marketplaces.
