Having a Facebook Fan Page is one of the easiest ways to add value to a site you intend to sell. Fans alone however, wont necessarily translate to $s. We show you how to make money directly from those fans by creating a Facbook eCommerce storefront.
It is no secret that Facebook is a must-have component to your social media strategy but also a great way to easily add value to a new project that you intend to sell. Facebook allows you to find, reach and communicate with new and existing visitors to your site, regardless of the niche you’re in.
All this equates to value and when selling your website, value = $s! In our first post in this social media mini series, we’ll take you through the basics behind creating a presence and engaging with your visitors.
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?
This post is a guest post by Gary Gottlieb from nEquity, and provides a different take on a strategy you can utilise to maximise profitability, rather than simply buying and flipping sites over the short term.
With so many articles (spun so many times!) that cover website flipping from a beginner’s perspective we’ll try and fill the gap over the next few weeks with articles for more experienced site traders, exploring aspects such as creative vendor financing, advanced revenue share agreements and with today’s post, growing your profits through website mergers and acquisitions.
Site Valuations as they currently exist are seriously flawed, if you simply want to know how you should be paying for a site, or how much your site is likely to fetch at an auction.
Whilst more advanced analysis is a must for larger transactions, we needed a simple, practical way of seeing how much a lower value site is likely to sell for at auction – we think we’ve created one.
We’ve spent the best part of this entire week on just one, seemingly miniscule problem – how to handle the problem of categorising the sites for sale our application lists.
Some marketplaces have categories; they’re on our Xmas gift list. Others have no categories at all. One, allows users to tag their own listings with a variety of weird, wonderful and quite often made up descriptive tags.
Here’s how we handle the fallout…
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.
