10 Keys to Selling a Website for Six Figures

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I published a new post here at ProfitBlitz! I didn’t intend for that long of a delay, but a few months ago I went through the process of selling some of my sites and recently all of my time has been tied up in the process of transitioning my time and focus from those sites to new projects.

Over the past 5 or 6 years I’ve sold several websites/blogs and I get questions pretty often from friends who are looking to sell a site of their own, so I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned from my own experiences. This article covers 10 things that I have found to be key to selling a website for six figures. Of course, this doesn’t mean that all of these items will apply to all situations, but in general they are good things to know if you are interested in selling your own site at some point in the future.

Monetize Your Blog Effectively with the Promo Box WordPress Plugin

One of the most important aspects of monetizing a blog is getting the right offers in front of the right people. If you want to promote products as an affiliate or sell your own products promoting them in the main body of your content is far more effective than simply throwing some banners in your sidebar. Promotions within the post content, or directly above or below the content will generally be the most visible, attract the most clicks, and ultimately make you the most money.

230+ Domain Name Ideas for Your New Websites and Blogs

230+ Domain Name Ideas for Your New Websites and Blogs

Choosing the domain name is an important step in the early stages of any type of website or blog, but it can be a big challenge with so many domains already registered. Personally, I really struggle to come up with possible domain names for my sites, and I know I am not alone.

One of my go-to resources over the past several years has been this list of domain name prefixes and suffixes compiled by Daniel Scocco. I’ve used this list to brainstorm possibilities for many different sites and over the years I have added many other words to create my own list that I also use. Daniel’s list was published almost 9 years ago, and so I decided to publish my own list of domain name suffixes and prefixes in this post.

13 Ways to Generate Leads for Your Business

You hear a lot about traffic, but not as much about leads.

But the truth is, leads are what people are really after – we just don’t express it that way.

There’s an assumption that traffic will just naturally convert to leads, but that isn’t always the case.

And what if you don’t have traffic, but want to generate leads for your business today?

In that case, you have to pursue other avenues.

I’m going to be covering 13 different ways to generate leads for your business, many of which are free, simple, and can be started now.

On-Going Traffic from Pinterest

On-Going Traffic from Pinterest

Back in January I published a post about how I was able to more than double my traffic from Pinterest in just 30 days. A few months have gone by since that time and I wanted to follow up to show the results over a longer period of time. One of the reasons I love Pinterest is because, unlike most other social networks, it has the potential to be a consistent source of traffic. Facebook can lead to huge traffic if you get a link shared on a popular fan page, or if your content is shared/liked by loads of users, but that traffic is always short-lived. The life of a post that gets a lot of pins at Pinterest can be far longer. This reliability and consistency makes Pinterest an extremely valuable source of traffic that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Zero to 5,273 Subscribers in 90 Days

Zero to 5,273 Subscribers in 90 Days

Late in 2014 I launched a new site as a side project with the goal of selling digital products. In late December I set up a mailing list with GetResponse and took a few steps to attract subscribers to that list. After 90 days that list reached 5,273 subscribers. That’s certainly not the fastest growth in the history of email marketing, but it’s not bad and does provide a good start that should continue to send traffic and generate sales.

While I have been prioritizing email lists for the past few years I took a different approach with this list, and I wanted to put together this quick case study to show the specific steps that I took. If you are getting started with email marketing hopefully this info can help you to grow your own list a little faster.
