Yes you can. Actually there's a lot of people now that have online business without having their own website. Now you can use social media accounts for your business. Also using buy and sell sites can help you run your business if you just like to. It just depend on what kind of business you are up to, there are many options especially with this generation of technology.

Definitely! Online businesses are not just stocked to having a website to gain revenue. You can do affiliate marketing using your blog site and social media sites. Another is, by simply posting your products on your social media accounts, wherein you can ask your family and friends to share your posts. From there you can get few customers which is not bad at first. By sharing posts, your online business will slowly grow, and eventually becomes stable.

Yes. You can still do an online business by just using the well known social networking sites like facebook, instagram etc. Here in philippines, some of the online sellers are using a site named OLX.PH. It's like posting your product or item on an online store.

Hello. As a start, I think you can start your business using different social media platforms like Facebook. It is free and you can easily reach out to your target customers through your FB friends. It is also accessible anywhere, anytime. Just have a good content and that can give you a good way of presenting your products. Then maybe as your business progress, you can consider having your own website. That will give you a better way of marketing your products and tracking the flow of your business. Good luck!

my dad is selling car accessories not in a website but through Ebay and facebook. So, yeah you can sell online without domain and website. But better to have 1 at least even if it is a wordpress site.

You are right but if your dad has a website and it is ranked on first page/position of search engines as Google or Bing then the profit can be x 100 times if comparing to Ebay and Facebook.

You can start doing business online via Facebook. If you are new to this field and still testing the waters, you can create personal account and post your products.

I also recommend you join established companies like Amazon, Ebay, Lazada so that you can easily learn the ins and outs of doing online business and the competition involved. There are many tutorials which you can watch on YouTube. Your acquired experience will equip you with marketing/operational skills which will later allow you to confidently expand or level up your business further by creating your own website.

To be honest hosting and domains are so cheap that it's not worth neglecting it. A website will clearly increase traffic conversion into sales.
Usually people make a "money" website where they make their money and they simply use other platforms (social media, blogs) to funnel traffic to that website.

You need to develop the set of information about your product on Web 2.0, put the ads of some types like CPA, PPC, CPS, Affiliate Banners and few others. Then promote the website with do-follow blog commenting and Forum Posting to rank the website on Google.

Today its possible with so many websites ,who provide you his platform to do that,but its gives you a platform but can put your product there and sell that.
no doubt product is yours and platform is provided by them you can do there.
but its better to do with your own website parallel with that it gives you a good boom for your product.

Hey,

Surely it is possible to have a online business without a website or/and domain. Social Media is the way to go. :ertery:
However, at some point of your business, you will most likely need to create and have a website, to expand it.

I think this all depends on the type of business you want to start. If you want to just sell product having ebay or just your basic social media account where you can post in groups. Then if you have to sell a product then actually assemble it then you may want to have a website to begin, even a free ones. Not sure what direction you are going in and I hope the information helped you that everyone supplied, good luck to you.

Yes. You can by using a Facebook page,
then attached a shopify account to it, this
will create you a free website with all the
tools you need for a 30 day trial, then you
can start promoting and selling your
products.

When the trial is finished, you may decide
to pay a small fee for a standard Shopify account. You'll be saving a lot of money
by doing that.

If you really want a free site, well you can always stick to a free Facebook page store.

Although building a website, working on it to get traffic and earning advertising revenue is the most popular way to earn money online. However, if you don't want to build a website you can -

Create YouTube Videos and publish them.
Find an affiliate product to promote.
Online stores like Etsy allow people to make money by selling their hand-made goods online

There are people who sell their products only on Facebook they share them to various groups and frequently pay for advertisements. They don't have a website, just a page on FB. But, in general, I think the better option is to have your own website with business email and so on, as your company will look more trustworthy.

Alright, so now you have some solid answers explaining how to start a project without any website whatsoever.
Years ago, it was difficult to build and manage a site, but now we have WordPress and similar free platforms. If the reason you're asking is some type of fear ("making a website is hard"), then trust me, it's easier than you think. A business with a website is a better option for a long-term game.
Sure, you could start with social media, but having your own website gives you the freedom to transform it into anything you want.

You can do that if you want to do email marketing or you can use other media like social network to elaborate your plan.
