    Hopefully I am posting in the correct spot.



    I am looking to find the best place to sell my web business, it will come with all inventory, customized website by a programmer, 2 .net exact keyword for the item that is being sold (one name is about 5 years old), I just do not know where to go anymore after being burned by paypal when I sold a web business a few years back.

    I am in the fashion industry and do have websites that are easier to run because there are less items involved. I have over $10,000 worth of inventory just sitting there and I have not been able to do anything with it because I have been struggling with cervical cancer for the last 3 months.

    I am not even going to be asking for much minimum I want to end up with is 6,000 or so since there is no revenue history. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which site(s) I should go to?

    There are entire courses dedicated to the subject. :)

    Here's a good place to start:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/site-flipping/171475-site-flipping-101-a.html

    You may also want to consider using a broker if you want to sell it quickly. On the other hand if you just want to liquidate the inventory you might want to talk to someone who deals in moving bulk goods (of which there are several on the forum here).

    oh no now I am even more lost. which would be better?

    Can you point me to one of the site brokers and bulk dealers?

    I want to go the way that is less headache (fast sale, best price, no problems)

    7878 is pretty much spot on.

    You're better off finding a way to sell the inventory to a wholesaler. I'm not sure of the best places to find someone like this, I'd imagine places like Alibaba and Ebay could be suitable.

    The site itself is pretty much worthless, so I would just forget about it altogether.

    Liquidate your inventory, let the domains drop... move on :)

    I wanted to update on this. I managed to become creative with my investment. I began creating custom cellphone cases. I took the backing of the brooch off and cement glued it to cases with crystal pieces into a desigh custom to the customers request and other small cheap pieces charging 40-60 bucks a pop, total profit of each case is about $35-55 so I guess I am going alright.

    The rest of the brooches I will be selling as a business with the websites so it has some financial backing, this should give anyone hope when all hope is gone. You just have to be a little creative! :)
