2. Choose the right NFT marketplace

It will be a waste if you develop a quality product but sell it to the wrong market. You might as well, not get a buyer. It is important you search for a good NFT marketplace. Examples include; OpenSea, Amazon, etc.

3. Upload your NFT

Once you have determined the marketplace that suits your product, upload it by clicking “Mint an NFT” (depending on the marketplace you choose). Select the “Sell” option and upload other details, such as the price of the digital product. You will also find the percentage which the marketplace will deduct from the total sales of your NFTs.

4. Follow up

This process involves managing your listing. After you have listed your NFT for sale, like every other online store, it is also vital to track the progress it is making. You will need to promote the sale of your NFT by making use of website and social media posts and ads to direct potential patrons to patronize you.

What you need to know

Many a time, people get discouraged to sell NFTs because they are not digital creators. The good news is that selling NFTs is not only for digital creators. Why? This is because, just like buying and selling in physical marketplaces, you can buy and sell NFTs. This means that you will be selling in a secondary market. You will have to follow the above steps on how to sell an NFT. The only difference is that you are not the original creator of the digital asset.

Why sell NFTs

There are different reasons you should sell an NFT. First, as a digital creator, converting your piece to NFT can be an alternative to selling it and earning even more. It also provides you with the luxury of choosing your own market. Second, if you have bought NFTs in the past, you can as well, resell them and make money from them. There is definitely, much profit to be made from selling NFTs, so this is a good reason to sell.

Although selling NFTs is not a walk in the park, it is a worthwhile venture. You will be incurring some marketplace and overhead costs, but when investigated properly, you will realize it is mostly a profitable venture. Besides, no business is spelt “easy” anyway.
