    About six months ago (Apr 2018) I decided to make a new website with some old digital products I'd created over the years.
    I would be giving them all away for free, in exchange social media follows and the users email address.
    I designed the website with SEO/growth in mind. No monetization, ads, etc.

    I am happy to say that my SEO work has paid off, including a #1 ranking for my main keyword.


    I am no longer in the industry, and have no desire to get back into it. So while I am thrilled with the sites growth, I have no use for it personally. My intention was to sell it to someone else who's still in the industry, or someone who's thinking of getting into the industry. I intentionally kept the site non-descript so someone else's branding could easily be implemented.

    Because my site isn't monetized, I don't think I will get good value for it listing it on a site like Flippa.
    I don't think EmpireFlippers would accept my site at all as there's no income.
    I haven't found any "brokers" yet that I'm happy with either.

    Things To Consider
    Because my products are old, I doubt they'd sell very well if I stopped giving them away for free.
    I briefly tried content locking / CPA with OGads, but that was a disaster.

    If someone were to list their 2018 digital products on here, I could envision sales of $50-200/day with its current traffic.

    The site is very new (Apr 2018), with only the last 2 months having good rankings and traffic.
    And because I'm retarded, I only put my Google Analytics code in last week. I was going off Squarespace's analytics before.

    My site is a .net -- the .com version of my domain is listed for sale at $300,000 USD.
    No website, just the domain for $300k.

    My Plan So Far
    I have been back-and-forth on whether I should try to sell it now versus aging it for a while longer and showing consistent Google Analytics traffic.

    I have considered making a "this website is for sale" page on the site and buying FB ads for it that would be specifically targeted to the industry.
    I have also considered scraping emails of people in the industry and sending them a one-off email about my site being for sale.

    I have never sold a website like this before, so any and all feedback and advice would be appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    You should try googl which has many website domain worth valuing traffic and valuing your domain name. That would be a good place to start
