If you are own a website or blog that you want to sell because it is of no use for you at all then you should use the services of Fippa. There are many other websites where you can buy and sell your online blogs and websites but Flippa is the best of all. There are a lot of people who create different niche websites, make them popular on the internet and then sell on Flippa to make money. Making and selling websites on Flippa is a proper business. However, to make sure that you are going to sell your website on Flippa successfully, you have to keep several things in mind.
Below, I’m going to share some tips that will help you to sell your website very easily on Flippa.
1 – Sell a Website that is making Money
If you want to make sure that you find a good customer on Flippa for your website who agrees to pay the right price then you will have to sell a money making website. If your website is not making money then you will have to work on it. A website should be able to make at least $100 per month. However, if you want to earn a great amount of money by selling your website on Flippa, your website should be making at least $500 per month. For such a website, you can easily earn more than $8000. The more money your website makes, the more price you can get for such a website.
2 – Google Analytics and Statistical Data
To present your website for sale, you will have to provide your statistical data as well. Just because you claim that your website gets 10,000 visitors each day doesn’t make it a successful or popular website. You will have to prove your point with logic and data. The best way to prove that your website gets a lot of traffic each day is to use Google Analytics. The best thing about Analytics is that, it will provide you with full data of your website and tell the buyer how many visitors come to your website every day. This will prove to be a great selling point for your website.
3 – You should have a Trust Rating
Each member at Flippa has a trust rating. The trust rating cannot be bought with money. Every time you sell a website on Flippa, the buyer is asked to leave a review about you. This review is called trust rating. If you have sold a good website and given a good deal to the buyer, he will give you better trust rating. Trust rating plays an important role in the selling of a website on Flippa.
4 – The Auction Length Should be 7 Days
I have worked on Flippa many times and in my personal experience the ideal auction length is 7 days. It gives you enough time to negotiate with many buyers and also gives the buyer enough time to make a decision. There is no point of keeping the website in auction for more than 7 days. If you are a serious seller, you will find a good customer within 7 days easily.
