Talking Sell My Website For $100,000


I am the owner of a blog (gossip, celebrity, etc) and I am making around $45,000 / year (Google Adsense). I am very happy as it is an automatic income.

Last week I got an Email from a M&A company (BizBroker24 com) and they want to buy my site for $100,000

I am not sure this is the right price, do you think I should expect more?

thank you for the help!

You might wish to refer to this thread, in which we discuss various concerns and tools to assist in valuing a business.

Of course, you'll want to have an attorney look everything over before you sign anything.

Good luck!

Valuing a business is great thing. However, you may also need to consider some basic things like:

Do you really the money now?
Are you comfortable with the lumpsum payout or would you rather rake in your $45k every year (3 years is $135k, 4 years-$180k) but I'm sure you've done the math already.
Are you prepared to part ways with a baby you've painstakingly raised through the years?

Take your time, because once you cash in, it's gone! Personally, I wouldn't even consider the $100k, assuming the blog really does bring in that kind of money.

I'm with BeBizSmart on this one... That $45,000/year is golden. But I think it also depends on how guaranteed that amount is to last.

Always do thorough cost analyses with these kinds of situations because once you make a decision, there's no going back.

No, I don't think you should go selling your blog for that much price. If I were you I would never sell it. Can I see the link of your blog?

Receiving a valuation over two times yearly earnings is very high for a website. most websites sell between six months to 18 months monthly earnings unless they are a big brand or are being bought for a specific strategic purpose.

I'm telling you this because the company that made the offer most likely made it contingent upon review of your books. I'm guessing they will start asking for discounts at that point as well.
