Do you buy websites? Or is it better from scratch?

by 9 comments
I am curious from those of you that are more dugg into the IM arena if you buy that many sites online? I have been working the Ebay affiliate arena for the past several months and have done ok with it. I am looking to expand my internet marketing buisness and was curious if yall buy sites or just have them made? I hear or read about how people have networks of hundreds of sites for adsense etc. I was wondering are these people buying these sites off ebay the same templates you see over and over again?

I guess my question is if you were starting off what would you focus on? Would you buy directories or autoupdating web blogs? Or is all of this a waste? I know that making you own product is the best thing but I am not ready for that and I want to get my feet wet so any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!

    No one buys anything?

      I don't have the deep pockets that some IMers have (yet) so I build my sites myself. Some are static html sites and some are WordPress blogs.

    Well, I never purchased a whole site. No reason behind it: except that I prefer to build my sites myself. I do outsource the designing of my site's templates, graphics, etc. to my graphics designers.

    If you are a total newbie then purchasing whole sites may be the best option. Of course, you gotta have deep pockets.

      IMO, there's no one size fits all - if you're a techie-phobe then building a site can be a nightmare, even with the cool tools available to us today. If you really can't be bothered with that stuff, go ahead and buy a site that's right for you.

      Personally, I would recommend everyone takes some time to learn how to develop their own sites, it's a valuable skill to have.

    It's hard when you're starting out as when client's seem interested they ask for examples but I don't really have much I can share at this point. While I have a range of online marketing skills, I really want to start offering eMarketing services and possibly social media management services plus some general marketing/promotions ... my offering I am not yet 100% certain of right now.

    I know there are a lot of marketers out there that are not using PPC campaigns on their business yet, and I understand why, social media ads is the trend in online advertising right now, everyone go straight to fb and twitter ads, and many even say PPC is not as great as it used to be. Well, I disagree with that statement, I believe PPC is still a very powerful way to promote your website and generate leads, Social Media might be the star right now, but if you want to design a 5 star campaign, you also need to think about PPC, and here are some reasons that support that:
