With 2018 fast approaching, the website marketplace is getting busy. How can you take advantage of it to score a wise investment? Online Entrepreneurs Liz Raad answers that in this video.
Hi! It’s Liz with you with some advice for investing in websites.
So, we’re coming into a really interesting time in the website investment marketplace which is towards the holiday season and Christmas. So, most of the websites that we invest in are actually based in the U.S. When you think about it, they are actually coming into a very cold and dark period. So, there are a lot of people – a lot of people who are aren’t going away on holidays but there are also a lot of people stuck at home and thinking, “Okay, now is the time to sell my website.”
We actually find some really good bargains on Flipper at these times through December and January. It is a great time to be getting on there on Flippa, having a look at some bargains if you’re just starting out.
Remember, keep to that under $300 mark. We just had a student who won the best website buy at our last workshop. He bought 14 websites for $200. So, it’s amazing! Go Lindsey! You did an amazing job there, great website so you can pick up some fantastic bargains coming forward into this Christmas period.
We also are going to see some of next years’ with really exciting changes we think in the marketplace. We’re seeing some rising in website valuations, we’ve got exciting things happening in the marketplace like the expansion of Amazon.
Amazon is coming here into Australia so there’s some new opportunities here in Australia. If you know how to build websites or invest in websites, then there are going to be some amazing opportunities coming up around monetizing with Amazon and also buying and selling perhaps Amazon stall businesses and websites.
There is also a really interesting trend happening in the websites marketplace.
We’re seeing digital assets becoming more and more valuable. So, your skills in terms of being able to value websites, to be able to invest and renovate websites are going to become even more valuable moving forward.
And at the last workshop, we had Flipper guys estimating that they think website valuations could rise up to 50 times monthly profits. So, imagine that? That’s like knowing that the real estate market was going to boom over the last 10 years. You are in that position right now. We’re coming in for amazing boom in website valuation. So, it is a very exciting time.
We are really looking forward to 2018. So, now is definitely the time to be getting in there and having a look at the marketplace and learning how to buy and build websites.
So, a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We’re looking forward to seeing you in the new year for an amazing year of websites.
