Free Tips on Buying & Selling Websites

Here's some free advice on buying and selling websites from someone with ten years of business brokerage under his belt and interests in more than a dozen commercial sites.

Go find the places where the people who earn their living online congregate. These people trade in sites and know how to quickly assess their value. It's all about traffic and sales. If you don't have either, you don't have anything to sell.

If you find a buyer all you need then is an online escrow service.

You don't need a broker. I recently had someone brag about selling a site for $40K and paying $10K in commissions to a broker.

I was stunned.

Small websites are an entirely different market from regular businesses in that there's an easy to reach critical mass of buyers and sellers who can determine the valuation with lightening speed, if you just know where to look.

Peter - I'm a top level web developer and have been a business owner in the past (AAMCO, Jani-King etc.). You mention "Go find the places where the people who earn their living online congregate". Any suggestions? I assume you mean where they congregate online and I suspect you might be aware of some sites that I am not.
