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.
Here are 10 keys to selling a website for six figures.
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.
There are countless different things you can spend your time on when you are managing a website or blog. I don’t know about you, but personally I could fill just about any number of hours that my work week could possibly have, because there are always other things that I want to be working on. With a limited amount of time being available it is important to use your time on the things that will get results for your business, and one of those priorities should be to build an email list. In this article I’ll mention 10 reasons why you should be making your email list (or lists) a major area of focus.
