I have listed my sites for quite a while on online marketplace, and eventually concluded that listing mine can increase traffic and business of your websites!
Consider this – you list your sites for, say, $20 to Sitepoint.com Marketplace for a 30-day listing. Your site, of course, will attract attention, that will usually be followed with bid placement.
If the price is right, your sites are successfully flipped to the new owners. However, what many site owners are afraid of is that their listed websites fail to sell well.
Some lose heart, some re-list theirs.
But do you know that, even if your listings are ended without any suitable bids, your sites will end up getting more attention by webmasters and advertisers?
By the numbers, my listed websites are always getting more visitors during the listing period.
I have been contacted by webmasters asking whether the websites in my non-successful listings are still on sale… 2 months after the listing has ended!
What’s better, some advertisers have contacted me for an advertising opportunity simply by having my websites listed.
One of my sites is even earning commission selling affiliate products, which traffic is originated from Sitepoint.com Marketplace.
So business-wise, $20 for hundreds of visitors + affiliate sales + adsense earning + advertising opportunity. Priceless.
