Re: Sellers - How to satisfy those you sell to

So much time goes into what it takes to make the sale. What happens after the sale is an anti-climactic bore for the product owner. It's shortsighted and mostly relegated to the IM industry - sadly.

Commitment.

$4000 is what you "should" pay. For example on Flippa 10 x monthly (gross) earnings is a known calculation for buying web properties. If you're dealing with a private brokerage you'll likely pay more.
