Just Made 9k in 12 Hours

53 replies
Just a little motivation post, as I know the ones I've read have kept me motivated along the way.

After about 4 years of building tweaking and trying new ways to build a business online I finally found a way that worked for me. Basically using targeted traffic and affiliate offers.

I built up a small network of sites that started paying my rent.

Just the other day I decided to sell them all together as I have plans for a larger project with a similar business plan.

I was shocked when i woke up in the morning to see my sites sold over night for a total of 9k, I couldn't believe it and the feeling was beyond motivational.

I had built a profitable online business from scratch and exited at a significant profit.

Just a post for you guys still struggling at the beginning! Those that do not give in and persist through the tough times are the ones who will succeed.

I have plans for project 2 and my excitement is through the roof!

P.s im not disclosing the broker i used for privacy of the buyer.

    Well done!

    Iv sold a couple sites my self totaling just over $4000. It's a great feeling but reality hit's home and means you need to build more.

    To be honest, if I could go back, I would have kept them, passive income is what you want.

    Regards

    if your sites were any kind of success you would be making that 8 grand in half a year or less off of them. wouldnt be my plan of action but to each their own. good luck on future endeavors

        Hey Webmonopoly,
        That is really great. Such a wonderful way to end the week.

        Just use this as further motivation to reach even higher levels

    Well done! (good job) ;-)
    Personally I prefer to work with my passive profits system, on which you do/plan the first things and after that you get income for your full life

    Great job but shouldn't your title read...?


    Just Made 9k in 4 years and 12 hours

    All kidding aside it is motivating to newer ones to keep "tweaking and trying new ways to build a business online" as you say.

      Lol. That's what I was thinking...and that is the real time frame, but it's great you built up the value to that amount and I'm sure you made a good sum more than 9k during those 4 years. Good work!

    Just a note: You sold multiple sites overnight for 9K easily. Don't you think that even if you have doubled the selling price they would take more than 12 Hours but will be sold - And your post title would be: Just made 18K in 2 Days.

    If your websites were making money, you should've scale them up and leverage them to a passive income for more time and sell x3 the current price.

    But I totally understand that we get bored, and want a whole new clean and different project every now and then. So congrats budd.

      This would not have worked for me I got an optimal price tag in 12 hours. Plus my new strategy is an upgrade to what i built in the past.

    I had multiple solid reasons for selling the sites, that were more personal than anything. But for me selling them right now was perfect timing, and I have no doubts that I will be able to build something much larger with the experience i have acquired so far.

    Haha and yes 4 year and 12 hours LOL. Gota make the title catchy right?

    But actually more like 1 year and 12 hours, because these sites were only around 1 year old.

    Plus the monthly income on top of that...

    I am sure making of these sites will cost me time and money. So if I make them by 2 months and sell them - it will be great profit!

    If it's based off of targeted traffic and affiliate offers, then the website, by itself, isn't what's valuable. That would be your advertising campaigns driving the success. I hope for the sake of this buyer he got that. But it wouldn't make sense if you sold that since you would now be giving up your profit streams that you spent 4 years developing. You're just going to work 4 years and give up something that has steady profits?

    Site flipping is a extremely profitable business. If you look at the numbers:

    Consistent (~ 4 months to 6 months) $1k / per month site goes for around $10,000 (those are rough figures)

    You can expect a site to go for 10x the month earnings. Or more, if you have done brand awareness, created exclusivity in the market. Like having products, profitable funnels, brand-aware email lists.

    I am doing fiverr from last 15 month and earned around 5K yet with just fiverr only. Now what did you all say about me. I have a team of article writer specialist in writing all types of article on any niche you want. Just let me know what title you need with some keywords and i will be on my track. I eared around 5k and i work 14 hours in a day. My gig was listed front page of fiverr. What a awesome day was that but for some mistakes i had did my account got suspend. Now i have writing articles outside of fiverr.
