Who are Sharetribe’s competitors? What kind of site can I build with Sharetribe?  Is Sharetribe better than WordPress?  What kind of marketplace can I build?

Here are some of the Sharetribe comments and questions I’ve gotten on youtube (quite a few over the several different youtube accounts I’ve been using for online marketing “tips”) – and while Sharetribe isn’t directly analogous to WordPress (it’s far better for a marketplace style solution, obviously….as it’s built specifically for that use case) I still get a lot of folks who think WordPress is better – or some other open source free plugin is superior, and so forth.
The truth is, ,there are some AMAZING and powerful Sharetribe marketplaces that are doing millions of dollars in revenue.  (and are getting tons of attention and investment as well)
Q:  Platform like sharetribe isn’t great for who build competitive application and able to deal in millions users also don’t expect anything can be done with it, like custom build own system .

REPLY

A: Hi Akrash – I actually completely disagree!  There are some really amazing examples of live, powerful and profitable Sharetribe communities that have millions of users (in aggregate obviously – but some individual marketplaces that i’ve seen have huge communities as well) – Sharetribe is far superior to WordPress for a “Marketplace” style community – something you have to piecemeal together with plugins and extensions and back end access to  the public (depending on the marketplace extension you use or plugin you pick) – so I’d argue, that Sharetribe is actually GREAT for the vast majority of use cases of those who are watching this video – bootstrapped marketers who want to BUILD something great – in a niche they love – and don’t have hundreds of thousands – or millions of dollars to invest in the application – or back end tech.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I’m a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he’s super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says ” it’s always NOW” when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You’re making me nervous.
