Thinking about purchasing a Website for profit? Great! but before you make a rational decision, press ‘pause’. Make sure you take care of few things in order to make a safe and secure transaction.
1- Escrow.com is your friend:
From Domains to Vehicles and general merchandise, Escrow.com surpassed $2 Billion in transactions. It’s a platform to provide secure environment while you spend online. You can take your newly purchased website for a test drive. If you are satisfied with the results and claims of the seller, the info you received. You can ask them to pay the seller, not otherwise.
2- Clarify Each and Everything:
It’s your right to know everything about the purchase. After all you are going to spend money and anyone who was there to enlighten you with their prestigious advice will just be interested in your story. As said by Benjamin Franklin
“Investment in knowledge pays the best interest”
A tip*: Carve your own ways. Don’t listen to people around you. Focus on facts and figures.
The questions you should get answers to
- What’s included in the deal?
- How does it work?
- Any specific thing I should know about? (Ask it exactly like this)
- What happens if it doesn’t work out? (Don’t be stupid though, think about anything that could possibly go wrong)
- What about After sales support? Is it free or paid?
3- Reason to Sell:
- He finds it hard to manage.
- He needs cash for another project, make sure what that project is?
- Selling websites as a business.
- He is not interested in this niche.
- Doesn’t have enough resources to carry on that project.
*Remember there is money in website buying, not selling.
4- Time required to recover your initial Investment:
If it’s too late to get your initial deposit back before you make a profit, it’s not a good sign
Google is not predictable, so does the traffic. We received several emails from people who complained about traffic dries up after a month or two. This is what happens with adsense websites. Not with all of them, but with a certain percentage. So make sure it doesn’t take more than 12 months to recover your initial deposit, no matter how good it sounds. OR You will be in a lot of trouble.
5- Future Potential
Do make sure, that you don’t leave this one behind. Make sure you search google trends or keyword history of niche you are going to dive in. If the niche of website is not stable, it doesn’t make sense to purchase that site unless you are an adventurous kind of investor who believes in getting rick by luck over night! Does that happen?
Trust your instincts, if you think that seller is hiding something or this is not the right kind of investment you are prepared to handle, Don’t move forward with the purchase. It’s always better to buy a website with some kind of guarantee that your hard earned money is never going to be wasted.
