    Don't Sell!

    depending on the name and the traffic source you can sell this for anywhere from half a year to 4 year's revenue. You are better of sitting on it and letting that money add up if it's a steady income for you... btw, any chance you can PM me the name? I'm so curious what kind of name its still possible to handreg with this kind of potential!

    Your domain is probably worthless, if it's just a redirect.

    Your promotion is worth $$$.

    N one will buy an empty domain name, unless it's amazing.

    Yes thats what Im not exactly sure of. Like I said with very minor promotions I have earned 550+ in clickbank commisions just by forwarding the site. I don't mind keeping the domain because Ive done almost no work on it. So im sure theres LOTS more money that can be made with this .

    But if it is worth something, and I could make a quick profit from this, than this is exactly what I wanna do.

    But I have no experience with this, so could anyone give me some advice? THANKS!!!

    No the traffic is just from yahoo answers and related forums.. I've spent about an hours work of promotion to be honest with you, and Ive had sales nearly daily. Really I just wanna know.. If i sold the domain... and just replaced my affiliate link with the buyers affiliate link, would someone buy this?

    Thanks!!!

    Depends what the name is! lol.

    Provide the domain name and i can tell you if the reason your making money is because of your promotion targeting or if its because you have a good domain name that you can sell for some serious $$

    Seems to be the theme of every post in your thread.

    People what I think he may be trying to ask is "Would someone at BHW; like to buy this"..... "I would not like to list in BST".......

    Ah, see; takes on a whole new meaning now, eh?:D

    The saying "you say tomato, I say tomato" does not make much sense in times new roman..... but it means the same thing.

    Well Ive never done any type of site flipping or domain flipping before. I know that many people flip sites for profit. I'm just looking to see if there is a market for a domain that simply redirects to my affiliate link thats made me $550 in just a months time.

    Yes if someone came to me with $4000 to buy the site how could I turn that down? so its a question I MUST ask. You never learn anything unless you ask some questions.

    I don't see why you want to sell it? This is the whole point of IM, to have mainly passive income.
    Promote it some more, or invest your month's earnings into PPC/paying someone to promote it.

    Good job on that by the way - if you have any questions feel free to PM me.

    If i am the owner,i will not sell it.You can still have lots of earnings with it.The start is very good and i'm sure it is great as it earn that much on the first month.

    If future earnings comes into account, it would depend on:
    1) Is the domain generic enough to use for other products? (or does it match the offer?)
    2) Is the CB product you're promoting something that's riding on a trend, or something that people will always want/be looking for?

    If the answer's no, I don't think you could sell it based on the projected earnings.

    unless its a fad, I would say don't sell, then again no one buys an empty domain.

    just keep pushing traffic to the domain



    edit- no one buys an empty domain for lots of money unless it's like a a niche name, 3char, etc.

    I would not advise you to sell it, its valuable, +$500/month is great, u can scale it up, imagine 10 sites=+$5000/month.

    let me ask why you wanna sell and kill that cash cow? u'd vest bit more time and make the moolah tripple times. I have domains making me over 500$/week. I am trying to leverage and multiply the earnings. Thats what we call substantial growth :) Else if i'd sell the converting domains and spend that $ on multiple things n reverse no profit then must say m fucked and so do u imho

    Before everyone goes wild with responses, take note that amusco2 just bumped a 4 year old thread.
