The Marketplace section is a dedicated feed that allows members to buy, sell or share resources within your community. If used effectively, the Marketplace section can be a strategic way to monetise the content and deliverables within your membership business alongside your standard charges.
Here you can publish a resource into your marketplace for members to see. Along with the use of Groups, Member Types and Tags, you can assign different marketplace posts to specific members to segment your hub’s monetisation strategy effectively.
