    I have a site with an ebook (on foreclosure) I would like to flip. This is not a PLR product. I developed this product last year and just when I was about to launch, I took ill and have been in and out of hospital in the past 6 months.

    The reason I'm flipping is because I need to raise some money quickly. I could easily have put up another site and product for sale, but coming out of the hospital now, I've lost motivation to begin the launch process again. So I've decided to sell this off and raise some much needed cash.

    I'm new to the business of site flipping and I've already read a number of post in this section. But couldn't find any that makes particular reference to ClickBank-ready ebooks.

    I would appreciate some pointers. Since I have everything ready (sales letter, ebook, 4 bonus ebooks, banners, unique articles for affiliates etc.), but do not have any real statistics besides selling 4 copies promoting through adwords, I would love to know how I can package this properly. In your opinion, what would be a good BIN price?

    Any suggestions on how to get top dollar for this would be appreciated. Thanks a million :)

    I dont think the 4 copies sold through adwords will count for much. Basically what you have is a clickbank ready product/site. There are many of these on flippa and quite a bit of it is PLR and I dont think that matters much to a lot of buyers.

    In order for yours to sell well you will need to have compelling graphics as well as a good sales page. Its hard to say how much it will go for but the hottest clickbank ready stuff on flippa at the minute is making money through flipping twitter cpa etc.

    Depending on the demand for what you have it could go for anything between $100 to $350.

    If I was you I would not flip it. Instead I would offer PLR licenses to the product.

    To get top dollar, you need traffic , and sales. You really need to show
    income, even though it may be small.

    Incorporate a OTO in your site...capture some emails in an autoresponder,
    show a potential buyer that this is a latent money maker ready to explode
    with future profits.

    @shezboy - nice work. Did you sell this a few years ago pre-recession? I've found less sites are selling for premiums you mentioned (thats over 18 months income).

    Did you sell on Flippa? Or were you approached directly by a business?
