Series Update and Other Things

Hey everyone. I just wanted to give you a little update on the series AND I wanted to talk to you about some other things I discovered this week.

The Series
We’re still developing the website. It’s going slower than I had hoped. It’s hard working online when you don’t have the time because your family, work, and other obligations that you may have. The two guys that are working on the site have decided to devote a couple of hours each night to completing the website. This of course is a little difficult because they are still learning basic HTML.

I’ve also found it difficult to teach things like good sales letters, persuasive headlines, and the basics of how a site should look.  These are things that come with time and experience.  So I set them off to look at several different website examples.  You should look at how other marketers are creating their websites.  Chances are you will begin to notice commonalities. Some things can’t be taught but are learned more by experience.  I say get out there and put your mind to work on creating your website.

The Other Things
So… while I was trying to work with these two entrepreneurs this week I got the thought of just purchasing the website.  I’m not talking a PLR website but one that has already been created and is beginning to generate an income.  These are available and they are abundant.  But you HAVE to know where to look and what to look for.

One great website to look at is Flippa.com. They are, in a sense, the ebay of websites and domains. While I was browsing Flippa I decided to take a look at their blog.  I ran across an article by my good friend… Ryan Moran.  Come to find out Ryan is an exclusive content provider for Flippa.  Which means he is basically the authority on buying and selling websites online.

I’m trying to co-ordinate with Ryan right now to do a webinar on buying and selling websites online.  This will be an amazing opportunity for anyone that wants to skip some steps in website creation.

Ryan also has a model for buying websites online and selling them offline for 2 years of their total value.  Maybe, if I can get him to do a webinar for us, he will give us some tips for selling sites offline.

Anyways, we’ll continue creating this website and I hope that by Tuesday I can move on the the next step. In the mean time… Don’t forget to sign up below :)

I knew of Flippa a long time ago, because they were greatly advertised on Sitepoint’s Marketplace when Sitepoint decided to stop selling websites.

It really is a great place, It’s much better than selling something on a forum.

Kris –

Why the decision to “outsource” the case study to new guys? I would think you/your team could get this done in a fraction of the time…


February 5, 2010

Oh yeah we would absolutely be able to whip this out in no time. I just felt it would be better if I had two guys that had no experience online work the site from beginning to end. Makes for a better success story :)

Hope this complete soon.out sourcing will certainly speed this up.Will be back for updates.

Excellent Kris!

I really hope you get a chance to do that webinar with Ryan. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for!

Hopefully it’ll all be worth the wait.

Glad to hear the work is progressing along, Kris. Hopefully it’ll be everything you want it to be and more. Can’t wait to see it come to fruition.

Till then,

When you’re still learning basic html it is a huge challenge to meet deadlines! I am really following this saga with interest, and am rooting for the process to start flowing weasier as the skills levels start coming up. Good stuff!

I think websitegrader.com and google analytics will surely helps us to evaluate our site or blog.While purchasing/selling any site or blog it should have good google page rank,nice website grade,traffic level should be well and good alexa.
