    Greetings everyone.

    Through means of sheer serendipity I came to obtain a site (and a business, by proxy) of selling wordpress blogs with some pre-written content (and hosting services). Now, as you would have it, i'm clueless as to how i could promote this.

    Here is what I've already tried:
    -Facebook ads (kinda expensive, no returns thus far)
    -Snapchat promoting (I paid a guy to post twice about my site, relatively inexpensive, but mostly leads to nothing)
    -Paid traffic ( seen some traffic, seen no conversion)

    Here are things i'd like to try:
    - Twitter ads
    - Instagram (although preferably ran by someone else, or just pay someone to promote)
    - Blogs (read instagram above)
    - Reddit ads

    But i feel i'm just scratching the surface here... I heard about affiliate networks but i couldn't work with clickbank from my understanding (due to the product). I've heard of no other.<br>Also, I know of other ad networks but i'm not sure of how reliable they are.

    So if anyone could provide me with some tips or any form of guidance to start selling my product, I'd be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Just go to Flippa, everybody seems to be pushing crap like that out there anyways (see the starter sites section).

    Also, you need to find a pretty specific audience that is already in the zone for buying a blog, not creating one, which is another reason Flippa might be a good place to start. DP seems to have plenty of these types of blogs on offer as well.

    Try SEOclerks, dealasite, Flippa, and maybe craiglist. Try to have an auctions if you want fast money.

    Flippa would be the place, getting more competitive now though as most sellers adding lots of bonuses with sales. Article need to be unique not rehashed plr which these probably are. I get offered this kind of stuff a lot and never bother with it

    Haven't had much luck with flippa lately. The idea is to really pump up the templates, the flippa thing would probably require us to have a reserved domain name for it beforehand?

    EDIT: forgot to mention i liked the craigslist idea, i think i might try it right now.

    Would have to know more about the product, is it a pre-built wp blog that is downloadable or are you putting any customization work into them?

    I suggest SEOClerks. They may be able to help you there. I have had great luck with sellers there for different things.
