A better listing headline WILL affect whether or not your site sells and for how much. This seems like a no brainer, but it really isn’t. Having a better headline equals more views and more views on a worthwhile site will usually translate to more bids

The model behind buying and selling websites has changed drastically over the last few months, and anyone selling starter sites have questioned where the change in website sale rates will end up. We cant predict the future but what we can learn from people’s reaction to a changing economy will always be valuable.
This post was inspired by the amount of passion stirred up in the comments of a recent post on Flippa losing its “charm”. The days of selling sites with no traffic or revenue for upwards of $200 are gone and the first in are often the first to suffer, but should we really condemn them for simply playing the game?
When a company with a strong offering gains a foothold in a new and growing market, they gain momentum and, just like a Juggernaut, become unstoppable once they pass a certain point.
Flippa has earned its current crown as the industry’s darling, but we ask why are there so few serious contenders in an exponential growth industry with transactions totalling more than $24 Million each year?
We thought it would be useful to have a framework for the key areas that should be addressed first with any existing website purchase, to make the maximum overall impact and return on your investment.
The article focuses on the three areas of Design, Content and Traffic and aims to provide some common sense tips to help you decide on what to focus on first.
The list has been compiled from our own experience and bookmarks and contains a run-down of the five most essential resources for anyone new to the industry.
The greatest part is, four out of five of the resources on our list are completely free to use! A testimonial to the power of the web in empowering everyone.
