Need Advice On How To Move Forward Offloading 6 Figure Infoproduct Business

5 replies
Hello and great day Warriors,

We, my wife Jubilee and I, are strongly considering selling off some infoproducts which have generated significant revenues which we can show independent verification of. Of all the products only one has been fully developed with a complete web site. Collectively these products have generated over six figures plus and still continue to bring in occasional sales.

We know there is still huge potential in these product offerings but would like to focus on our core business now and for the most part these products are just sitting there testimonials, buyers lists and all.

Which of the following ideas would you suggest as the best way to sell them OR is there a better way we haven't considered?

1) Seek out a business broker to sell part or all 11 infoproducts paying them a percentage of course

2) Post the sale of all 11 infoproducts as a whole business offering (not as a WSO) on the WarriorForum or

3) Maybe post the products individually on Flippa as individual businesses building out individual sites for each because currently only one of them ever really got built out with it's own domain names, graphics and sales copy.

Personally I know that last option would probably bring in the most money but didn't want to go that route unless I had too.

Looking forward to hearing what my fellow Warriors have to say and think about this. Thank you for taking the time to read plus share your thoughts.

God bless you and yours,

Mark

      The part that would worry me is where you say they still bring in occasional sales.

      No doubt you could still find a buyer.

      post an ad here first and buy a banner pointing to it or like you suggested first, go seek the assistance of a broker.

    If you survive due diligence you will make BANK. I see people severely overpaying for viable businesses on Flippa and if you have a proven business model and can provide all of the details that matter you can really get a ridiculously high valuation.

    People are HUNGRY right now for business/sites such as the ones you just described.

    Option 1) sounds like it would incur some steep brokerage fees that you really don't have to pay in today's day & age and they would probably end up selling your stuff on Flippa anyways.

    Option 2) flat out sounds like it won't reap any results, but that's just my opinion.

      Thanks Adevictus. I definitely appreciate you taking the time to post. I believe deep down inside I already know the answer to this question (agreeing with you reluctantly) but wanted to hear the opinion of others.

      Thanks Andrei for the advice. No need to worry about the occassional sales. That's only because we have not been promoting the offers, seeking out Affiliates or JV partners. We also never launched these infoproducts on affiliate or digital sales sites like CB or similar style sites so the potential is definitely still there and huge.

      Have you looked into BizBuySell? Also, try Craigslist Businesses For Sale Section. I have had some very solid deals come from that section on Craigslist.

      Lastly, a broker may be a good idea, but make sure you pick the right broker who understands your industry. Good luck!
      I appreciate the input and suggestions Daniel Faraday. I recently heard of BizBuySell and funny you mention it because within the last week during my research of how and where to sell these infoproducts as a business that site came up.

      Also never considered selling these infoproducts as a business on Craigslist. Will definitely take a look at that.

      Finally as for a business broker I'm with you on that one. I definitely would need suggestions on where to locate a business broker who understands our industry and would help facilitate the best deal for all parties involved.

      So we have the following:

      We have 1 vote for option three (Flippa) which is very sound advice no doubt.

      We have 2 votes for seeking out a business broker.

      We have 1 vote for selling through CL.

      Thanks to all who've taken the time to post.

      Stay blessed.
