"PBN transfer can be negotiated
Does this mean you have a PBN connect with the domain?Tue, 12 Sep 2017 02:15:38 AEST
@weilim Yes. There is a PBN owned and managed by myself. Tue, 12 Sep 2017 02:31:34 AEST

You're asking for $40k for a site not even a year old?
I was interested until I saw that. Your valuation is way off.. The site has only made $5k at best.
Why is it worth more than $1? Let's start there.
Your description shows A LOT of leg work being done by you... If I'm buying a 'job' why should I pay more than a few hundred dollars? The site is unproven, has hardly been up and running for 5 months.. And just from the comments it sounds like not everything needed to run the store is included in the sale price.
If you are serious about selling and want to see your baby actually live on and prosper, let's talk.. but you need to be waaay more realistic about this.. I'd have to invest a ton of time and money in it..
Your # keyword is wakizashi, best japanese swords is #2, best slingshot uk #3... Having only made $5k (most likely in april or june since traffic has been zero other than those 2 months)... Your valuation would have to come down to a couple hundred bucks and then an earn out, where you'd get more but over time as the site proves itself.. almost like a royalty or something...
You made a really nice site.. Proved the checkout cart works. This is hardly a business. It could be tho.
Again, if you're willing to be realistic perhaps we should talk.. but you may not fully like what I'd have to say.. It'd be the truth, get your site actually sold and turn this site with a couple of sale surges an actual business tho.

@skillsforsuccess thanks for the concise comment. Firstly, the site has made £19,000 revenue since launch, which is clearly shown in the financials, 80% of that in the last few months. It's now consistently selling between £4500 and £5000 of products every month, equating to £2000 plus of profit. This is all from organic traffic, no ads, no Facebook posting, just organic traffic.
The site is a culmination of over a years of work, building content, testing products and building links.
Google analytics was installed in April which might be where your confusion comes from.
Everything you need to keep making sales on autopilot is included in the sale. If you'd like to expand the business further then a PBN can certainly help.

Congratulations. That's awesome and something to be proud of..
I'd really love to do business with you.
The data I have access to still confirms my earlier statements. Flippa's portfolio on this site alone says it's only made $5k in the past 3 months, netting half that. Your statements on your track record make it sound like you have 12-24-36-48 months of data to draw from, but you don't.
The domain being sold bladespro.co.uk, was registered February 27th 2017 and just updated September 11th so it will not expire until 2021..
Archive.org has no record this site existed prior to march this year.
From what i can tell from traffic reports, you had a major spike in April & June (around 50k visits per month), but May and since end of June, have had very very little traffic since then. 75% of your traffic DOES come from SEO but with I mentioned above, there's no guarantee sales won't decline without a massive investment in energy, time & effort by the new owner.
A handful of sales isn't a solid business - or a proven business model.
I'm pulling this data from and cross referencing multiple sites. I've built multiple businesses and know what I'm talking about.
I fully believe you've got the search work invested, probably spent more time on the site then before it was launched.. But bladespro.co.uk has only existed since Feb this year and the fact it's not even been a full year - plus knowing how fickle SEO ranking can be... I'm very confident in my earlier comments.
Definitely has potential, but $40k is just waaay waaay off.. You need at least 16months of solid financials before you can expect to get any multiple of expected earnings. At this point it's about selling the assets you can prove.. Right now the SEO is spotty, traffic in flux and not much of a community to tap into either.. Are you building an email list? How're you driving traffic off social media? How many suppliers do you have for your store?
I'd pay $500 for it upfront and perhaps negotiate a % of earnings over the next 6 months, in exchange for a certain level of your help and effort being put in to make sure this is and becomes a real business.. but that's about the best I would do. Sun, 17 Sep 2017 04:06:55 AEST
*We have backup for this removed comment :
You've done a lot of things right. I'll give you that.. But it's so early, things are too unstable and there is still SO MUCH work to be done.

@skillsforsuccess Thanks for your continued interest. I'll attempt to address your concerns one by one.
Flippa shows the site making $5k last month and $2.3k profit last month, not in total.
Excellent question on the domain age, and it's one I hadn't covered, but it's worth being informed about. The bladespro.co.uk domain was registered in February, however the site existed under thesurvival-man.com since 2015. There were concerns that this may have been confused with the TV show, hence the rebrand. It's still the same site.
The major spikes in traffic are described in the video walkthrough, but for your benefit they are due to reddit posts making the front page.
Are you building an email list?
Yes, it says so in the description and you'll see if you actually visit the site there are two mechanisms for capturing email addressed.
How're you driving traffic off social media?
This is also covered in the description.
How many suppliers do you have for your store?
Also been covered.
While not everyone enjoys an armchair critic. I would appreciate it if you could restrict your comments to questions or requests for clarification rather than in depth comments telling me why you won't be buying.
Sun, 17 Sep 2017 04:54:08 AEST
@skillsforsuccess Additionally, I won't be selling the site for $500, that's about 3 days of revenue and 6 days of profit. If the site does not sell this time, that's fine.Sun, 17 Sep 2017 04:57:52 AEST
Why have you not used paid advertising to build an audience?Sun, 17 Sep 2017 22:08:53 AEST
I think this site needs a LOT of work to keep it moving forward, which is probably why you are looking to sell. If the new owner wants to keep traffic coming, they will need to invest huge amounts of time and money into scaling up the business. Why are you selling now before you can taste the profits? You invested so much time into the product. Is your email list included in the sale?Sun, 17 Sep 2017 22:11:36 AEST

To clarify, as it's a text only conversation, I'm commenting what I need if I am to buy.. and what anyone not new to this would need.
Maybe some feedback for flippa would be to clearly label if that gross vs net profit chart is monthly or total.. based on the graph one could assume total as there is no profit shown before January and the first 3 months show less than $800/month gross.Sun, 17 Sep 2017 23:00:18 AEST
@parkle43 I haven't had inclination to do so.Mon, 18 Sep 2017 02:57:33 AEST
@parkle43 I'm not sure I follow. Profits and traffic have been consistent for 3 months without additional work, I would expect it to continue generating passive income without further output. However, if work was invested then you could increase the probability.Mon, 18 Sep 2017 03:14:18 AEST
@skillsforsuccess please take a look at the figures I have provided or the video walk-through.Mon, 18 Sep 2017 03:17:40 AEST

Good luck on getting anywhere close to this price its not worth it !Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:14:45 AEST
