    Let me start off by saying I am NOT trying to compete with Thomas and Bryan's website brokering service here. Honestly, if you have the chance to work with them, go for it. They are more experienced than me in the website flipping business and have more ready-buyers than I do and would be great to work with.

    However, I know they are both extremely busy and can't possibly take on every client that comes their way. So due to this, I am going to offer my own website brokering service for those of you that want your site sold for a premium.

    In the past year I have sold somewhere around 75k worth of websites for myself and a few clients so I think I have been rather successful with it. I do a good amount of business through Flippa, but I also have a private list of buyers that are always ready to buy revenue-producing websites.

    How my service works:

    The way it would work is you will provide me with a few details about your site and I would take it from there. I would first pitch your site to my private buyer list, and if none of them were interested, I would proceed with listing it on Flippa and using my own expertise to get the site sold for as much as possible.

    Once the sale is complete, I will take a percentage of the final sale price of the site. The percentage will vary depending on the sale price, but it will be between 10-20%. This is something that will be discussed if I take you on as a client.

    Why go through me when you can list it on Flippa yourself?

    That's a good question. The reason is, running an auction isn't as easy as it sounds. It's a very time-consuming process and there's a lot that goes into it to make the auction successful. You have to write good auction listing copy, know how to get the site in the "Most Active" section, answer tons of comments and questions, talk with potential buyers 1 on 1, complete buyer due diligence to make sure they aren't a scammer, know when to Feature the auction, and so on.

    So as you can see, it's not just a "list it and forget it" type of thing. I am very hands-on with the selling process which is why I believe I have been able to fetch high amounts for the sites I have sold.

    I also have a flawless Flippa rating and all my buyers have been very satisfied with their purchases. The social proof really helps people to trust me and makes them comfortable buying from me.

    Requirements for me to work with you:

    • The site must be generating a minimum of $200 per month in revenue with most of it being profit. If it's making $200 but you're spending $190, it's hardly worth much.
    • You must be able to backup all traffic and revenue claims with legit screenshots. If you can't prove your claims, I will not work with you.
    • You will have to prove ownership of the site before we talk further. There's several easy ways to do this and we can cover them if I work with you.
    Do NOT bother PMing me if:

    • The site isn't making a minimum of $200 per month net profit.
    • You're someone trying to artificially inflate traffic or revenue numbers or use fake screenshots (I can easily find out).
    • You cannot back up your revenue and traffic claims.
    • You're a scammer trying to rip someone off.
    If this sounds like something you're interested in, please send me a PM with the following info:

    • Site URL
    • Average unique visitors per month
    • Average revenue per month (profit as well as gross revenue)
    • Source of traffic (Organic, paid, social, etc.)
    • Any other details you think will help
    The more thorough you are in your application, the higher chance I will accept you.

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to working with you guys.

    Hey J ,

    Just to let you know people fake traffic and revenue's via screenshots etc.

    I have experienced this and a good way to counter a person who wants to scam you is to ask for a teamviewer session with the person who is selling the site so that you can do your due diligence properly and quickly which will rule out any scam's in progress :).

    Anyways good luck on your venture !

    Thanks for the comment ahiddenman. I agree a lot of people out there fake these numbers. I've seen it way too many times myself. That's why I will be very selective in choosing the people I work with and make sure I do thorough due diligence on them.

    The TeamViewer session is a good idea and something I have used before. It's much harder to fake that than a screenshot.
