I have often been asked the question - “Why sell your site if it's making you money?”
Well, there are some very good reasons for selling your site.
Let's suppose you build 1 or 2 sites that each earn you $5.00 per day. That's $300 per month which
isn't job quitting territory but will make a big difference to many people. But what if you had 10 of
these sites, or 50 or even more. This is when the magic really happens. But most people don't get
this far for a few reasons. I want to ensure that YOU aren't one of them.
Here's what generally happens...
Example 1 – This web-master (we'll call him Joe) sees that his 2 sites are generating $300 per
month and wants to keep that income permanently. So he leaves them be and moves onto his next
venture. After a few months Joe realizes that his Adsense pay-checks are getting smaller and
smaller. Why? We'll look at this later.
Example 2 – This web-master (we'll call her Jan) realizes that those 2 sites are worth between
$2400 and $3600 (8 to 12 x monthly income). As she only spent $300 - $400 dollars to outsource
both sites she cashes in, sells her sites and uses the money to pay some bills and go on holiday.
Both of these web-masters have failed to look at the big picture. They worked so hard to learn the
ropes and get to this stage, only to throw it all away. Sure, an extra $300 for a few months sounds
great. So does $3000 in cash. But if you stop and think for a moment you can do so much more with
There are many different reasons. It could be that one wants to move on to do something else. It also could be that the new owner is in the better position to finance the site to make it even more successful and gives the old owner an offer which could not be refused....
I need to ask, why exactly is this in the interior design section?
"After a few months Joe realizes that his Adsense pay-checks are getting smaller and
From me personally, I posted my first hub today in about a year, yet every month since I last posted a hub I've seen my Google check going up to the point where I doubled the minimum monthly payout in just one month last month (£120 instead of the £60 needed)
Considering I haven't published in so long, I'm happy with that!
Really like your logo:) I've heard it before, the best time to sell something like what your talking about, is when it is making money?

Can you remember what it was like when you first started to write Hubs?Before you read this rambly post - please know that I am not a newbie trying to suck you dry for information without doing any of the work myself....

I just wanted to start a topic in the forum to see how well some people are doing with their hubs. I've been a member for almost a month and made about $7.50. Feel free to leave how much you make per month and advice...
