    I have a website that I made 4 months ago that basically aggregates deals from amazon. Recently checked and saw it has 500+ visitors/day from organic traffic.

    So far I've made about $15 bucks from affiliates commision, but I'm positive with a proper redesign the clickthrough rate could increase by a lot.

    I've put my site on flippa not too long ago with its base price starting at $100. However I'm not sure if it was too much or too little and could use some advice. I wish I could post the link but BHW says i'm a new member :(

    depends. I mean the 500+ visitors a day from organic search, its targetted to a niche, its just I haven't took care of it enough to increase conversion rates.

    A better design will increase conversion rates, which means more money. Each person's buy is worth at least $.20, so about $1000

    It depends on the buyer really. If they see your site as it is - not the earning potential it has - I'd say around $100 tops. Now if someone sees your website's earning potential (if it exists) they will pay higher for it, possibly around $300. If you got lucky and stumble upon an inexperienced bidder, you will usually get much higher than that.

    Also, it pretty much depends on how you sell your website. Does it have good content? Did you emphasize on its potential income?

    These are just guesses, because you can never tell how much you'll be getting from an auction.

    People like facts and figures. I would have stuck to only the hard facts and mention that you don't monetize the site. List it and emphasize the 500 daily uniques to a targeted amazon niche. Don't throw the fact that it has potential in their face or it will look like a hard sell. You need to let bidders sell it to themselves and that is how you drive up the price.

    I've got an amazon review site built long time ago, but never had time to work on it, so it has very little traffic and not an lucky sale so far, I just want to get rid of it asap, how much should I sell?
    I did put some work on finding keywords and writing good reviews, making the site look good, exact match domain and the rest of the stuff, so the site does has some quality compare to the ones in the marketplace.

    Ballpark figure for online businesses would be roughly 6-12 times the monthly revenue.

    If you think that with a redesign the clickthrough rate can be much better, then do so first. Once you have a couple of months of solid sales data, THEN sell it.

    Not worth much right now. Best to redesign first and sell after you have improved it.

    Maybe I can link it right now.

    rainbowloomdeals(dot)com

    Actually I'm going to redesign it. Plus I'm a hell of a lot better programmer than I was 6 months ago. I see the potential in it now, so lowkey I wouldn't sell it for anything less than $1000.

    My analytics say my 1.9% click-through rate could give me $200 a month (programmed potential revenue in the system). The products are definitely outdated, but yeah thanks for the input guys. I know what imma do

    I actually sold a site like this just now on flippa without any revenues being claimed. However, it has some pretty good numbers (visitors wise). It took me an hour to make the site and flipped it for $100.

    Also, with site like this, i think you should use wordpress. It will save you so much time and money.

    You can always start at $.01 and set a reserve, how much are you comfortable with selling it for without feeling ripped off. Right now traffic is gonna be the reason people buy since obviously its not making money, though it could be. What's the reason for you wanting to sell it in the first place, if you just not rather have it than anything is better than nothing, but its hard to say without really knowing what you're trying to do :)

    Before buying the sites, the point we pay most attention to is the potential that site have.Current earning are just one of the indicators but not the only one. If a badly managed site is earning good, then bidders will bid keeping in mind that they can increase earning by managing it well.

    6-12x monthly earnings seems optimistic with only a single interested buyer.

    At flippa, we dont buy a website on the basis of its current earning but the potential it has .You are getting traffic then its a good sign and I am sure you will get bids..

    This is rubbish. The vast majority of websites sold are valued off a multiple of current earnings - not "potential". If you buy sites based on potential, I have a lot of failed projects gathering dust all with potential :)

    I'd say around $50, but more if you could improve the design. Like someone has said, a better design will increase conversions.

    6-9 times seems too less. That is like 11.11%-16.66% profit per month!
