This is information you will not find on any other site or in other articles. It is well hidden and rarely talked about. With that said, I will give you the tips and tricks to get top dollar when selling a website
There are two-three kinds of websites and if you don’t have one of these websites, then you are wasting your time and efforts in trying to sell it. No one will pay you money for a site that does not have one of these three money generating features.
The first feature a website should have is reports showing the amount of money it has made in the current month and past months. The easiest way to add an income flow to a site is to place AdSense on it. When promoting a site for sale based on an income flow, it is good to have no less than $10 a day in income. If the site is making less than that, then it will not pull in the kind of bids you are expecting. Sites with at least $10 a day in income can get bids of over $50000.00.
One of the most powerful features that can be promoted on any site is the list. Sell website content and a list of any size, greatly increase the sites value. A marketer can easily recoup the cost of buying your website by sending a few promotional emails to a list.
Third This is to all sites that are sold should have is traffic. Now there are sites that sell for big money without traffic, yet most need it. A site should have no less than 100 visitors a day. That sounds like a lot and it is a lot. Yet with a good linking approach, this traffic can be achieved in a short amount of time. The difference in the bids gained by a site with high traffic and those that do not have high traffic is worth the small effort. For example a site with high traffic and no monetization can sell for ten to fifty thousand dollars. This is not a lie, I have seen sites go for $80,000 to $100,000 with a combined high traffic count and solid niche. The traffic presents a lot of potential for any bidder. A savy marketer can turn a high traffic website into a good income flow.
These are the three important areas to focus on when selling websites. A website does not need all three to be ready for sale, yet it does need at least two of them to make it worth your while. Sell website content and a list is probably the most powerful out of the three. A close second is traffic with the third criteria being monetization report.
