So you’ve been thinking about selling your web site or blog?
Before you do, there are a few things you need to do to make sure you can get top dollar for your web site.
Follow these simple steps and receive top dollar for your web site properties.
Gather All of Your Web Stats and Earnings
This is crucial! No one is going to buy a web site and put out good money without numbers to back them up.
Being organized and having an auction listing that is in order and easy to understand will make you site sale go a long way. Use Google Analytics for your web traffic and backlink reports, while also providing screenshots of all revenue generated from the web site.
The further you can go back, the better.
Don’t Sell Your Web Site Until It’s Generating Money
Would you rather have a web site that is getting thousands of visitors per day with no revenue, or a few hundred visits a day with some revenue?
There are always more ways to get traffic to a web site, but the ability to make money from a web site goes a long way. When you have a revenue model, buyers are willing to pay a larger multiple for a web site.
Know What Your Web Site is Worth
As the owner of a web site, house or anything… we are always going to want top dollar for what we have, and usually over value everything. Selling a web site can not be personable, especially when factoring a value on your web site.
The best way to break down the value of your web site is to take the monthly revenue of your site (profit or revenue times 12-20 months). The multiple can vary heavily depending on your niche, type of web site and quality of visitors and content.
