Tips on buying and selling websites

Anyone who has been involved in building and developing websites online knows that one can make a profit from buying and selling websites. Selling a Website, however, requires that you take into account several important things before you decide to pitch your website to a buyer for a sale.

The first step you should undertake is to get a Website Valuation. After that, all you need to do is to weave in your personal touch in your sales message. Nobody wants to be sold to by a total stranger, but many people will buy after seeing a strong recommendation to them. If you can convince your audience that you are a personal friend who has their best interest at heart, they will be convinced to buy your website. Website due diligence must always be kept into mind.

You should also publish testimonials and comments from your customers after every website sale. A good idea would be to publish both good and bad comments; that way prospects will be really convinced that these testimonials are real. When prospects see the testimonials of your past successes, they will have the confidence to buy from you because human beings follow the herd mentality. When others have bought and proven it authentic, they will jump on the bandwagon and buy websites from you as well.

    6. I’d like to buy a mountain bike which will be suitable for occasional (and sometimes intense) off-road use (e.g. Dalby Forest), as well as general road use. I’m on a tight budget (£300 – £400 max) and know very little about mountain bikes. I’d be very grateful for tips; what to look out for, what makes/brands are good, and what to avoid.
      Any links for websites which sell discounted bikes would be good too!
      THANKS!

    9. I’ve had an hp laptop for 3 months, now. I’m trying to save money for an apartment and I have payments on the computer (I’m doing about 50 a month due to the fact that I have other bills to pay, as well). I purchased it with a Wal-Mart credit card and it’s interest free for the first twelve months BUT there are still finance charges and other sneaky things like that. I paid somewhere around $700 for it. Could I sell it on ebay? What should I use as my asking price? Are there other websites where I can sell electronic things (ex. laptops, digital cameras, mp3 players) and actually get a decent amount of money for it? I’m trying to get at least $500 for the laptop. It’s in very good condition and I still have the original packaging and a Windows 7 upgrade. Should I try putting an ad in the paper? Should I clean my system so there is nothing left on it, so it’s just like starting fresh when someone buys my computer? And how do I do that? I’m sorry that I have so many questions I am just new with the selling thing, haha.

    10. Ive heard of the websites that you upload photos to and people buy them, but I saw that they want you to give them your credit card number or passport photocopy. I know it probably wouldn’t hurt, but I just dont feel comfortable giving out that information. I was thinking about making my own website. Any tips on how to do it? Like using paypal and how to deliver the image? Thanks:)

    11. Hi
      I just started to play with this +500 stock trading client, this is my first time i have ever gone into these realms so i am a complete newbie when it comes to trading.

      I know basic things, i understand how to buy and sell, and have read a couple of guides for beginners.
      I started playing with “demo” money but that got boring as it meant nothing to me, and i dont have BIG capital to lay down, im just a student who would like to make some extra money on the side using my loan to do that.
      Starting with £20 i have doubled up this week, trading crude oil whilst in lectures/at work.

      I would just like to know any GOOD free websites to investigate, and good forums for traders where people talk forecasts, tips, etc etc. (im not sure if these forums exist but im guessing they do).
      At the moment i am particularly interested in day trading, in commodities, but i would like to play with the currency forex more but ive only seemed to lose money here.

      Much appreciated!
      Best answer will be given

    12. I want to buy a ferret. I would like to find ferrets for sale other than in the main pet stores like in classified ads of buy directly from a breeder. I cant travel farther than the area of knox, sevier, blount, or anderson counties in tennessee. How can I buy one online and have it shipped?

    13. My freind and i are planning to make handmade beaded necklaces, bracelets, and earrings to support childhood cancer. We would like them to look as professional (or look good enough to sell at a store). We do not have a big budget on buying all the supplies so do you know any ideas for websites that will sell nice cheap professional looking beads, string, and the closing things. Also if either you or if you find a website that gives tips, hints, ect. about doing this sale thing please let me know.

    14. I just bought a fleece show sheet and fly sheet for my horse and need to sew in surcingle’s and leg straps (I paid almost nothing for them!). However, I’m really unsure how to do this? I was wondering if anyone had any good tips or know of any websites that sell complete kits to do this? I plan on using them for shipping or when the horses are in their stalls or at shows but would like to make them as heavy duty as possible. Any tips would be great!

    15. I am an MBA. I was hired on campus by a multi national company. I was posted in Bangalore. I started working a month ago. This is my first job.

      I have rented a small two bed room apartment near Koramangla. Now I need to furnish my house and buy other household items.

      Should I seek the help of an interior decorator who can do the entire job for me? (I have a small budget. Besides, the furniture and other household goods I buy should not cram the place.)

      Or, should I buy the things myself? If so, are there any shops near Koramangla where I can buy good quality furniture and other household items at a reasonable price.

      Thanks for your suggestions.

    16. CVS says buy one get one half off for only one brand of makeup products but, can you buy two different products of the same brand and still get the sale? or do you have to buy both the same makeup of the same brand?

    17. I just need one that’s running, doesn’t have to be fancy…of course, it shouldn’t be breaking down every 100 miles I drive.

      What should I expect to pay?

      And any other tips on buying used cars? Websites or anything I could go to?

      Thanks in advance!
      Also, the car obviously has to be safe. And it would probably be best if it was parent-approved…

    18. I want to set up a site with my photography–make buying optional and sell ad space to make money. Is there any way to make it not possible for people to copy the images? Also, does of any this need license? And would i pay taxes from the ad space money?

      Thanks

    19. I am writing a short book I would like to sell on the internet as an eBook. I plan to learn how to promote the book using Google Adsense etc and other publicity, however I don’t want the hassle or expense of setting up an e-business site to handle the sales.
      Thanks!

    20. I am 22. I am on journey to lose a lot of weight and I have started lifting weights, walking, and trying to jog. So are there actually any good ways to condition myself to jog? I can’t go for very long and my shins start hurting. Any tips?

    21. My wife and I are looking to open an online shop and dropship products. We are looking at various products right now to consider selling. We need some help in figuring out the various options in terms of website development/maintenance, setup of shopping carts/merchant account, other possible dropship product ideas. Any thoughts? We would like the shop to have a very profession feel so we wanted to do a little more than a basic eBay store or Yahoo store.
