How should I go about selling my website?

I’ve been running quadify.ca for a couple of months now. Originally, I just did it because I had an interest in drones and wanted to share my knowledge with the rest of the world. Quickly, it fell short and I started focusing on business and marketing which heavily interested me more than anything else. Well, that ended up falling too because I didn't gather up the motivation and discipline to continue on with a niche I wasn't interested in. Currently, I'm looking at trying to get a bit of a return on all the hours I spent on it. Here's the specs:

  • 1213 all time page views, 325 last month. Primary audiences: Canada, United States, India.
  • Facebook page with 54 likes & functional store
  • Affiliate markets DJI products through Facebook store and onsite ads
  • B SEO score (work in progress)
  • Established presence in various social pages & groups
  • Refined website with 10+ articles including functioning subscribe, search, comment and share features

It really isn't all that special because of the lack of time and had and slowly fading motivation but I would love to see it in more capable and interested hands. The infrastructure is built, what's left is improving and expanding it.


For someone who might be interested in purchasing a blog like this, how should I reach out to them? How do I determine the price, even if it's worth one? All in all, I'm really just looking for someone to take it out of my hands and compensate for the time I put in. Can anyone in this community give me any pointers?


Thanks!

Hi Elian and thanks for your question. Actually, I just made my first sale on Flippa, a pretty nifty website for selling domains and websites like yours. It works as an auction like Ebay and you can place all those details in your listing.


I probably wouldn't lead any intros with "lack of time and slowly fading motivation" but other than that, you may be able to get a quick buck off the work you did spend on it.


If I can be of any further help, we offer free consultation to entrepreneurs on our website at Invenst.Team or you can check out our future site at Invenst.com


Cheers!

You might want to have a look at other web sites/businesses for sale to get an idea of how much traffic you need to be of value. There are numerous brokers/marketplaces. Here's a handful;

Sorry for going off tangent. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't one of the biggest, if not the biggest, challenge facing the drone industry is the severe limitations put on where you can fly it? In cities like Toronto it's almost impossible to fly it from what I've been told. I don't think the drone industry has done a good job clearing up this confusion and I think it has to adversely affect sales.
