    Hey BHW members,

    Quick question....

    I am looking to purchase a brand new Clickbank ready site (domain, product, sales page, thank you page, affiliate section, exit splash page etc) on flippa and I have come across some really nice looking sites. You can pick up these sites around $200-$400 BIN depending on the seller.

    Do you think these sites/products are worth the price?

    I am watching one site at the moment in the IM niche...knowing how competitive the industry is, I am thinking is it even worth it.

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    zoheb01

    If you do not know how to do a cool design and don't have time for it a $200 value for a neat website would be similar to what a mid level freelancer would charge. So if the site looks good and the domain is good it's worth the price in my opinion.

    Thanks DanielOcean for the advice.

    I am thinking if I do buy the site, to launch the product as a WSO first. Does anyone see an issue with doing that?

    Most of those come from several WSOs for quick and easy CB templates. I think one was shared recently in the download section. You might want to do more research before listing a WSO promoting a product created by another WSO.

    The story is always going to be, can you get approved by CB? How much will it cost to get approved? How will you get traffic to your site? How well will the product convert? What will be the chargeback rate? How will I attract affiliates? On and on with the questions but just like any website, without a good USP and marketing plan you're tossing money away.

    I'd recommend you find the WSOs that auto-build these CB templates and build your own and have the tools to build more if it works for you. I wouldn't pay a seller $200-$400 for a template website that still needs developed and marketed. If he built it from the WSO programs he's got an hour tops in it.

    If the theme,product,domain and the design seems good to you then you must try your luck.
    But make sure you know what you are going to do with the domain, you must know things like where to get the affiliates and customers.

    If it is ready to go - and by that I mean there's nothing more you need to do with it before you IM it - then it may be worth paying those prices, although obviously you want to get it as low as you can to minimise your risk and maximise your potential. Otherwise I wouldn't touch it. Similarly, if you could do the work yourself in an afternoon then I wouldn't pay for it at all.

    Before doing anything... get a free copy of the product from the owner and see if it's any good.

    No-one is going to sell a site to you for $300-$400 that has a) an original product b) a good product - it's highly likely to just be PLR

    Yes, meathead is right. Be more careffuly about the value of the content you are buying if you want to be on profit later.

    Agree with above two - the product itself is likely outdated PLR. Take a look at the actual product before buying.
