    I just finished an e-commerce site that I was doing as a side project and thought would be an easy way to make some extra money month-after-month. Its premise is around selling pocket squares and ties, all of which are ready to be made (I have the fabric and a seamstress), boxed (I had boxes made with the logo on them) and shipped.

    The website is complete (I run a couple different web dev/design ventures) and if it would have been for a client I would have easily charged $7,500 for the website creation alone, then another $400 for the logo.

    My question is, even though it's a great site that's ready to launch with product almost ready, would I get a dime for it since it's got no sales or history?

    Each pocket square, including the cost of the custom boxes and shipping, runs about $5. They'll be selling for $55 (the fashion market is incredible).

    I'd just like to get some of you guys' input. Should I hold on to it and try to make it work when I have the time or sell it?

    The sole reason I didn't post in Meathead's thread is because I don't think it belongs in there as I haven't launched the site yet.

    Well, without having sold anything so far, the site may be worth $XXX.

    If you have the time, I suggest you actually launch it and make a few sales. Then decide whether or not you want to keep it.

    I am interested. Where is your seamstress located? How long does it take her to produce a square?

    If you have experience as a webmaster, then you are in right direction to launch it...
    Get every thing set up.... as a ecommerce store you will need to manage everything like social media promotion, SEO and other technical things....

    Not only technical things, there are many other fields you will need to focus..

    Logistics could be very painful.. They are hard to manage and support system...

    Looking forward to what you do....
