Just in case you were thinking I already have too many websites – I bought another one! A viewer over on my WP Eagle Youtube channel approached me asking if I wanted to buy their site in the darts niche. And after having a good look I thought it could have potential.
The site is dartpicks.com and it's only 8 months old but has over 30 articles and is ranking for a whopping 444 keywords (says AHrefs) in the darts niche. Annnd it's already running on popcorn theme, which is terrific. So the plan is to flip it in a few months and see how much profit we can make.
The Numbers $$$
I picked it up for $850 which seemed like a fair price as it's already earning $40 per month on Amazon.
Currently getting about 200 users a month but I think that number should go up soon looking at the number of keywords we're already ranking for.
I'm planning to make simple changes to the site including:
- new thumbnails
- articles edited and tidied up
- switch all tables to AAWP
- increase speed by removing unecessary plugins
- increase speed by moving away from current host (Hostgator)
Lastly, I'll start to add some more content and see if we can start ranking for some low-hanging fruit in the darts niche.
I'm hoping that by making these simple changes, tidying everything up and sell for around 10x ($8000 – $9000) so will be aiming to get the earnings up to around $250 per month.
To do this I'll keep going with Amazon and also get Ezoic on the site.
What do you think of dartpicks.com? Have you ever bought a website and flipped it? Let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
