I had an interesting discussion with some folks the other night and one of the main topics that came up was, “How much would you sell your blog for?” One said $1500, one said $5000, and one said $5 million. It’s not only an interesting question, it’s a valid one because you never know who might offer you a good chunk of change for your blog. It happens all the time.
Back when I had Blogging with Cents and was in the Top 50 Money Making blogs…I was offered $6000. I turned it down. Big mistake now because I ended up letting it go due to blogger burnout but at the time, it was my baby. I was so proud to be a woman who was doing well in the affiliate marketing niche,that I just couldn’t let it go. I think about it all the time…what would I have taken for it? $10,000? I just don’t know and for most people, you won’t know until you’re offered something for it. You’re gut will play a big role in deciding, along with your heart and even your current financial situation.
Maybe the real question is, Would you sell your blog? I think some soul searching will be needed for that decision. Whether you might want to sell now or later, it’s good to have an idea of what your blog is worth. And if you’re saying, “but I don’t really make any money so it can’t be worth much”..well, maybe not right now but it could in the future..or someone could come along who NEEDS your domain. I think it’s a good idea to have some kind of marketing strategy for your blog, just.in.case.
OVER TO YOU
So WOULD you sell your blog, and if so, what number would hit the spot and make you grin? And I mean that as serious question. Maybe an interested buyer is watching this post right now. What is your bottom dollar that you would take for your blog and what is your ideal price?
