For Those Who Have Sold Their Websites , I Have A Question
This is mostly for anyone who`s sold a website but I welcome answers from anyone who maybe able to help.
I have a website, I`ve struggled with it content wise as I lost interest in promoting.It`s a physical goods website, so it`s "earn as you sell".Sure there are many passive sales, I`ve made some sales from posts that are 3 years old, but still I got tired of the site long ago but kept working on it now and then, adding content when I had the time.
It`s not the right way to run a business, I`ve always thought of selling but then I think "too much work has gone into this site so I`m not selling" then I work on it again until the next urge to sell comes.
Lately I`m just more and more tired of the site and I think it`s time to let it go finally, it`s not as if I`ll be giving it away free.
Now I never created an opt-in for for the site so I have no subscribers, I`m fine with it that way.I read somewhere that the more subscribers you have, the better price a site can fetch, but as said, I don`t have a list.
To anyone who`s sold a site
Did you have a list and if not, did it affect the sale price so much?
My site is skin care niche,3 years old, 191 posts ( sometimes months go without a new post or me even visiting the admin area of the site),traffic is 52% social and 37% organic(for now).Traffic is very low for now but when I`m working on the site as I should, it`s goes upto 1000 visits per day.Income has been steady for the 3 years and all that.
In general, the site is ok, I just get tired of promoting physical products because I know If I don`t promote,the sales drop and with physical products, it`s a 1time payment.
Can you please tell me if not having a list is a big deal? or can I just put the site on the market and see what offers I get.
What Makes Me Decide It`s a Must Do Now?
The site is about microdermabrasion which means I mostly sell personal care products(people will not find my site while looking for camping gear, they find me while looking for personal care products) and this as you all know now only earns you 1% affiliate income at Amazon.
Yes I could move things around but there is no easy way to change the niche plus, it`s the site as a whole I nolonger want,
