Hello everyone, I am looking to sell my website as the result of a recent promotion at work and the time constraints it puts on me being able to finish what I started!

Please read everything before you leave a comment with questions. Most of the information you need is in this write up!

The domain name is: www.ToolsForLess.com

Tools for Less carries power and hand tools, including drills, saws, welders, air tools, and more from Black & Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, and others! From generators to flashlights we've got you covered. ToolsForLess.com, your one stop internet shop, for

Here is the flippa auction as well:

Premium Domain Name with Ecommerce Site Built Page Rank 4 and is on track this month to have 7,000+ Unique Views! Website Established since April of 1996 (From Alexa)
If you are truly interested, please read this ad in it's entirety before you ask questions.
Hello everyone. I bought this domain recently and built the entire website thinking that I would have more time, but I just recently took a promotion at work and have no time to invest this this site. The site has huge potential for someone willing to market the site. Where else are you going to find an aged domain name, with great keywords in the name, in a 5.6 Billion Dollar Industry?

Right now the site has a Google Page Rank of 4 and the Alexa Rank is getting lower and lower every day! The Alexa Rank drops by about 200,000/day. The site also ranks high for some of the best keywords in the business such as Power Tools, Air Tools, and Hand Tools.
This is a huge market with $5.6 Billion being spent/year in this industry. With more and more shopping being done online! There is not much that needs to be done to start getting a piece of that pie.

What little marketing that I have done, has had great results, and I am no internet marketing guru. Most of the traffic is organic. This site also attracts commercial buyers for companies. I have had two in the past week email me about a wholesale account for their company, and have set them up with a discount code.


Let me stress, that I've had hundreds of hours building this site. From adding the products, pricing them, adding the pictures, etc there has been several hundred hours put into this site. Every picture on the site is linked to my bit.ly account so you can also track who clicks on the pictures. Plus it is also convenient to have short URLs for all of the pictures since most Ecommerce sites limit the length of picture URLs. The pricing on the site is most of the time inline or a little more than amazon. I have it set this way because I don't want to be the cheapest guy in town. I also have a price match guarantee on the site, and in order to get that, they have to email the company email with a link to the product they want proving the lower price and I will match it.


This site has been featured on several different websites including NYTimes.com and KillerStartUps.com, at one time this website was booming, and then the parent company that owned the site went out of business.

Here is the link to Killer Start Ups Article:
Toolsforless.com - Power Tools & Hardware Supplies | Visit toolsforless.com

Here is the link to the Guide 4 Home Article:

Reconditioned Power Tools vs Refurbished - bosch

Here is the link to the NYTimes.com Article:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/22/ga...ifts.html?_r=0

Yes, these are old articles, but it still shows what this website was at one time!

The site is hosted on Volusion. I have another Volusion store, so I really like the platform, and it integrates with my drop shipper to show inventory status, and also syncs with UPS to give live shipping quotes.

The only reason the site isn't making a ton of money now is because I was about to setup the payment gateway when I got my promotion at work, so I have it setup to receive PayPal, but most people don't like leaving my site to pay for it. There are all kinds of articles on this topic if you do a simple google search; you will find the truth in that statement. The site has made one sale since being launched. The process is very easy with the drop shipper and you can even set it up to be completely automated. I just like having the interaction with the customer making the experience more pleasant, so I process the orders myself. With Volusion I have subscribed to Enterprise Smarter Stats to track my traffic. I do not actively use analytics, I've used Smarter States for several years with my other site, it is actually easier to use and gives you more information than Google Analytics.


For the right person this website could be a gold mine! If you want to invest a little time marketing and doing some ads, then this site will ultimately make you a ton of money. Even if you wanted to remove the store and just use an affiliate program you can make money with a domain name like this. The domain name alone has appraised over $5,000. Like I have said previously, the hard work is done, so just market the site and watch the orders come in.

If you have no experience that is fine also. I am not a super savvy website builder, but I did what you see all myself, with very little experience. The only things left to do, is to finish adding the remaining products into their respective categories and start marketing and then watch the orders fly in.

I hate to sell what could potentially be a big time money maker, but I don't have the time to take it to the next level.


The sale of this site will include the blogspot blog, which has active followers and the Facebook page which has 1,300 organic likes! I will also give anyone any training they need to run the site on the current platform. Any questions after the sale, I will be more than willing to help out in any way I can!


Here is the Facebook Link:

Here is the blogspot link:

Please feel free to message me with any questions and I would be glad to answer them. If you are serious and would like to call me, please message me and I will give you my phone number!

If enough people are interested in the site, I will add a Buy It Now!

Kind Regards and thank you for viewing my listing!

Thank you. Have a ton of time into it. I'm sure it could use some tweaks since I'm not the most experienced web guy but it has all of the big things going for it, domain name, age, traffic, good niche, good track record, most of the work is done etc....

Just curious: did the site sell in the Flippa auction? A few months back the site had one sale total, in your opinion because of "cart" issues. Have you remedied that? Is it now selling briskly? Thx
