    i have this website aged 2 years. it's about learning how to sing. very niche, difficult to even get solo ads for it. most of my traffic is from google.

    the site gets 500-600 uniques/month. around 40 unique articles that i wrote myself

    here are the income stats:

    3158 impressions
    79 clicks
    4 leads
    $719.70 sales

    this is for november

    i have just started collecting emails for listbuilding with only 3 subs so far

    i want to sell it off on flippa to get cash and move on to a more profitable niche

    anyone with experience flipping sites on flippa? any help would be much appreciated. thanks

    Flippa sucks. They are a bunch of scammers selling autoblogs and other trash with fake traffic and fake earnings they will probably fake bid your site and take your listing fees.

    First you should place the name of the site when you advertise it.
    Second why do you want to sell a site that bring so much money?
    Usually you ask for 10 month revenue.

    I would say 6X Monthly gross income or so. That seems to be the going rate right now. Depending on the niche or source of income you may get a little more or less.

    Wow, I am surprised to hear this. I have been discouraged to see businesses sold for 12x monthly incomes (1x annual income) when previously it was 2-3x annual income. Though, as I think about it, this means that there are some real bargains out there!

    I've sold a lot of sites since I started back in 2006. I rarely sell a site LESS than 10-12x monthly revenue.
    If your site is making around $500 - $700 a month you could fetch up to $7,000 for it.

    You are new on DP but have a 2 years old site, and you want to sell a website that made $700 in nov, sound like you want to fool somebody.

    Come with more details pal!

    It would be better that he keep it then try and sell it for that. It makes more then it's worth.

    The only reason that I can think of for a website to only sell .5x annual sales is because there are so many scam website sales out there that a risk factor is being applied to the valuation.

    hi, appreciate your concern. here are my answers:
    1) i misquoted. $700 in sales, my commissions are more like $65. this is quite consistent
    2) no, i'm not really that active in MMO forums. i am active in singing-related forums, however. that's where i get some of my traffic
    3) i'm not trying to sell the site here. so no, not fooling anyone. i just wanted to know how if my site has any value at all should i decide to sell it

    thanks all for the feedback. although as per my post above, i stated the gross revenue instead of my actual profits. sorry for the confusion. i guess this means i'll have to let it go for a lot less than what we've discussed so far..
