    Thanks again Nick for being so easy to work with! It was definitely a win/win deal for both of us!

      Thank you too Reggie. Transferring the website was less than perfect but I appreciate your patience. I hope you kill it with the website.

  2. Daniel says:

    Wow, I didn’t see that coming. I’ll definitely be following along on Reggie’s site. Thanks for continuing to be transparent about this! For what it’s worth, I think you made a good deal, especially with the Amazon state ban.

  3. Reggie says:

    Eh, I’ve dealt with much worse. Yeah, the site’s development is definitely going to be interesting!

    It’s too bad that the site wasn’t still making $500 per month because $8K would have been an incredible sum to report. But salvaging $800 for a site you were ready to move on from is better than earning next to nothing. What were your total expenses for this site again?

    • Nick LeRoy says:

      Yeah I hear you there! The next one i’ll hit low 5 figures!

      I did a poor job tracking the expenses but you can assume the domain, hosting and the content on the website was roughly $100.00. I bought one Hoth basic package at $60 for the site too. I forgot that I had purchased a $70 amazon product page plugin too (WPZonBuilder). So really it’s less than $300 total. Remember that in addition to the $800 sale I picked up two $4XX checks too. So strictly from a dollars standpoint I did well.

      Let’s not talk about time though. Between switching from Amazon to SKimlinks, redesigning the entire website and switching out all affiliate links multiple times im definitely in the red. DEFINITELY a great learning experience though.

    Wow, didn’t expect to see this. Thanks for sharing it though and for ensuring it’ll continue to be a transparent case study. I’ll definitely keep following it on Reggie’s site.

    Hey Nick when do you think Amazon and Minnesota will have their affiliates going again?

  7. Tim says:

    I think you got a fair price Nick. Sometimes its good to read things that reflect my own experiences that with niche websites its not easy to maintain their success.

  8. Hey Nick, Thanks for sharing the story. Website valuation is really tough to determine in many cases – this one definitely had extra complexity.

    Overall, you did well… Everything you put into the site in the past is a sunk cost. Good move and now you can focus on your current projects.

    Reggie has a HUGE potential upside on this site. Good luck!

    Hey Nick, congrats on the sale. Looking at the site, it doesn’t look like it has much links built to it so I think it can be salvaged. Hopefully Reggie will be able to turn the site around.

    Nick,

    Not sure if you had got an Ideal Price for selling the niche site but Yes you did the right thin by selling it. I don’t think you will be able to concentrate fully having two niche sites which needs lot of care at the same time.

    Hi Nick, congrats on the sale and thanks for sharing the story. . Looking at the site wish Reggie will be successful.
