Have you seen adds that read: Turnkey website For Sale and wondered if this might be a faster path to online income? I’ve been working on the Internet for 15 years and have often wondered that myself. I know, first hand, just how long it takes to bring up a new online business from scratch and thought I should research this possible short-cut and share what I’ve found.
In case you can’t wait to read this entire article and need to have the answer right away, here it is. Should you buy a turnkey website for sale? Well, it depends. I know, not the definitive answer you were looking for. But in business, things are rarely that clear.
Here are the factors you should consider when researching a turnkey website for sale offer.
1) What space is the website in?
s this a space you would be comfortable operating in? You will be doing this for a long-time because online businesses don’t produce significant revenues overnight. So make sure you’re comfortable with the products. I tend toward tools that have a variety of product choices. This way, if a certain niche doesn’t work for you, you can switch.
2) What type of support comes with the turnkey website that is for sale?
Does the team behind the site seem credible? Is there a forum where questions and strategies are discussed openly? These are a few of the factors you should be looking into.
3) Do you have the technical skills to do what the turnkey website for sale is offering yourself?
If you don’t, then you should lean heavily in favor of buying the site. If you do, there are other considerations, read on.
4) If you do have the technical skills to replicate the functionality of the turnkey website, do you have the time and interest?
If your answer to #3 was yes, you now need to consider if you have the time and interest. Remember, having the skills to do something is not enough. You need to really want to do it. One strong advantage to turnkey website solutions is that they have economy of scale. That’s all they do. So if you are marginally interested, you should buy it rather than build it. Chances are, their product will be stronger than yours because that’s all they do.
5) Is the price right?
I see all sorts of wacky offers on the Internet. If someone is asking you for thousands of dollars for a turnkey website, turn them down. These are available for a few hundred bucks. Do your research and price comparison shop.
If you use these criteria, I believe you will make an informed decision as you consider that turnkey website for sale offer you’ve come across. I’ve seen people turn these turnkey tools into wildly profitable businesses. I’ve also seen people buy them and let them sit there earning nothing. So consider these points, make a solid business decision, and then get to work. There is no time to second-guess if you went the right way when there is so much more to do after buying the site. Promotion and sales will require your full attention.
