Are You Missing These Simple Website Bargains?

By | March 21, 2012

Finding a bargain here at isn’t tough – the tough part is finding a bargain that will work for you. After all, we host a lot of websites for sale here; it’s up to you to sort them out and make an offer on the right one.

Of course, the greatest frustration isn’t when you try to buy a website and aren’t able to land it; it’s when you miss the simple bargains that you’ll most want to kick yourself. In order to prevent that unfortunate turn of events, we have a solution: keep reading about these simple website bargains so that you’re able to spot them at our marketplace.

The “Highly-Scalable” Bargain: A lot of websites out there will have low overhead – just paying for hosting fees, for example. That might run you only $5-10 per month. In fact, this is so common that you’ll probably start tuning every site with low overhead out. Well, you figure, it’s going to take some investment if you’re going to ramp up this site’s earning potential anyway.

But that’s not true for all sites. Some sites are highly scalable, which means you can ramp up the amount of money they make without requiring a heavy investment of time, money, or effort. For example, a website with a “community” presence can have low overhead costs and even low traffic – but its involved community makes it a potential goldmine. Don’t miss out on the sites that have a lot of potential just waiting to be tapped.

The “High-Barrier-of-Entry” Bargain: Yes, there are a lot of websites out there that generate a lot of money. The problem is that investing in them can be difficult; the high barrier-of-entry precludes you from making that investment. But just because a website is difficult to afford doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not a bargain. Be on the lookout for the big-time websites that are asking for low prices simply because of a slow economy. The high barrier of entry might be a barrier, but that doesn’t mean it’s not one that can’t be circumvented.

The “Consistent-Performer” Bargain: Of course, some websites don’t make a lot of money. But they do have one advantage: the money they do make comes in consistently. This is a great way to start building up your own portfolio of websites, because the consistent income will help you to have the money for more ambitious and high-risk projects. Many people overlook the smaller sites simply because they’re just that – small sites. But there’s a lot of value in consistency, and it’s often overlooked.

The “Low-Maintenance” Bargain: Along the same vein as the bargain listed above, don’t forget that low-maintenance bargains can be a refreshing change from the typical work you do with website purchases. Simply make the purchase and start cashing the checks from the site; it may not always be consistent, but as long as you don’t have to touch it, you’re not losing out on your most valuable asset: time.
