    Hi all. I found place where you can buy or sell your site and as i see some people buy amazon affiliate site for 1 500 000$ with profit 54 000$ per month o_O

    [​IMG]

    https://empireflippers.com/marketplace/

    How? Who? Why? I not understand, i always thought that if your website earn for example 10 000$/month the price of site is about 100 000$. It's mean in 10 times more that profit. But here i see people sell site in 30 times more that earning.

    Can you explain me how is built price of amazon affiliate site?

    Thanks.

    It's not an affiliate site, it's an FBA site = huge difference.

    wow.....if i had $1.5million i could put it to much better use...
    About 3 years to break even...IF things do not change (hint they do)
    Unless it's a bolt on he can expand quick?

    Still for 1/10th of that i could get him bigger profits

    There are affiliate sites that can go x20 or even x30. It always depends on the site. You are lucky if you find a good site selling for x10

    Of all the businesses I wouldn't buy an Internet based one, especially one based off Amazon platform. It changes too fast and too much competition for my liking.
    But not saying it can't work.

    So, FE's and EmpireFlippers' standards are high than flippa. Do they do well in competition with Flippa?

    A properly made Amazon FBA business isn't limited to being internet-based. It should come complete with a brand, products, a contact list for manufacturers of said product and all prices and parties involved with the product-creation and shipment processes, the website, any social media association accounts, proof of earnings, all the reports in Amazon's Seller Central for that account, keyword rankings, remaining inventory, and likely a whole host of other things I can't think of, off the top of my head. So in essence, you're buying an entire business and not just a website. You just need to ensure your due-diligence with every "i" dotted and every "t" crossed, so to speak.

    Quantity vs Quality.
    Both models work well, I'm sure. As for which works best, you'll probably have to ask them. We can only speculate. Personally, I'd rather focus on quality, as you need to focus less on the number of sales and more on customer satisfaction. To each their own but I prefer the latter.

    It's common and normal to sell the website for (monthly profit x 24). It means that your website will make the money back in two years if everything stays the same. Real life businesses often sell for much longer time periods to make money back. 3-7 years are normal for offline businesses.
    So it's a good long-term strategy to buy websites. Maintain them or upgrade to have passive profits after 2 years.

    It's a proper business that's using Amazon to distribute their products, not an affiliate site looking for the 3% Amazon commissions.

    Depends on a lot of factors like stability, income streams, earnings history, site/business history etc.
