Usually on the first stage they collect the project all over internet: other marketplaces, social networks and so on. Then, after they have 50-100 tasks they turn on adv in search and social. Guys who want to earn money 10 times more than the guys who want to spend it:)
In Russia you can check Avito.ru - the biggest marketplace ever. Ozon.ru or Wildberries.ru.
In Ukraine - Rozetka.ua
In Poland - Olx.pl.
If you need the whole list of marketplaces please let me know.
If you can specify the type of your items - my answer could be more specific.
I recommend to look to content-marketing. You can run you blog with tips and reviews of interesting places. You can post you guest post in famous travel blogs. You can run contest between instagram or facebook celebrities. All you need to find your target audience.
I recommend to look into third party solutions. Due to your marketplace niche you can choose one of existing CMS (content management system). For MVP please look to wordpress CMS (wordpress.org). You can easily roll-out it in default design in 1 day and you can split the audience on register page. For different group of customers you can enable different functionality. I've launched several marketplace MVP on wordpress and then when the hypothesis confirm hired dev.team and develop my one platform.
Hello. My name is Serg. In my point of view one of ideas is a service where people will collect what the do after quarantine finished. For example: I will go to my favorite restaurant Yoshi Fujiwara and eat sushi. Or: I will go to my favorite shop D&G and buy new clothes for my family. The idea is the remember all wishes and send a reminder when all this situation finished.
We can discuss more details if you are interested in.
