Four steps to selling sports memorabilia online
1. Create an effective sports memorabilia website.
An online website builder makes it easy to create your website. Select a theme, add your information through an easy to use drag-and-drop editor and save to publish your website.
By doing it yourself, you have more control over the development time and design. If you hire a designer, there will have an agreement between you and the designer as to the looks of the website, the development schedule, review and approval of the design, and cost of changes.
I use WordPress because it is one of the most popular applications. WordPress is:
- Free – WordPress is a free open-source software.
- Easy to learn – WordPress has proven to be a program that is easy to learn.
- Easy to use – no coding, programming or file transfer programs are required.
- Easy to create websites – over one thousand templates or website themes are available.
- Social media friendly – customizable social media capability is often built in.
- Flexible – thousands of plugins are available to improve website functionality.
You can start building your sports memorabilia business NOW. It could even look like this.

Part of the building of a website, is building it out by adding new content. We show you how to get more visitors. Whether your visitors come from social networks like Facebook or from search engines like Google.
Successful content-based websites are built around a specific themes to attract the most visitors.
