Now you have an idea of what your website is worth and want to see that number get bigger. How do you do that? Obviously, you can do it by making more money. But beyond that, here are five ways to increase your sale price: 1. Diversify your income streams Remember how I said websites with multiple income streams sell for more than those with a single income source? Well, if you only have one or two ways of making money, expanding that will help your multiple. You can do that by: Adding display ads to your site through a display network like Ezoic or AdThrive. Branching out to other affiliates besides Amazon. Creating and selling your own physical or digital product. If you’re able to, I highly recommend working out affiliate partnerships directly with the companies you love to promote. Amazon’s affiliate program is great and easy to use, but it only pays a few percent. If you work out your own partnerships, you can get anywhere from 5% all the way up to 30% or more. It pays to build relationships and do things others are too lazy to work on. 2. Negotiate higher rates with affiliates If you already have partnerships with different affiliates, an easy way to increase your income is by negotiating a higher rate. It’s extremely common for affiliates to give out a higher commission if you just ask—so long as you have an existing relationship with them and you’re actually sending them sales. Send them a quick email like this: Hey [Name], I’ve been working with you for X months/years now, and we’ve sent $X in sales to you. It’s been wonderful working with you, and we love promoting your products! If you are able to bump our commission up to X%, that will give us more funds to promote your products to a wider audience and create more content around your brand. Can we talk about getting this rate increase? Thanks, [Your Name] Lastly, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and call them. It can often be easier to negotiate over the phone or on a video call. You can use the power of human connection, as you’re not just an email address on a computer screen. 3. Reduce costs If you reduce your business’s costs, you can sell it for more money. Duh, right? Some easy ways to reduce costs: Canceling subscriptions you’re no longer using Paying for tools annually instead of monthly to save Review your finances and remove or reduce any unnecessary expenses This one’s pretty self-explanatory, so I’ll leave it at that. 4. Diversify your traffic sources Just like diversifying your income sources can increase your website’s value, having multiple traffic sources can offer the same result. I already mentioned that organic traffic is more valuable than paid traffic. So you can start SEO efforts to get more organic traffic. Besides that, you can also create and promote your brand on multiple social media channels. Start a TikTok account or a YouTube channel. Cross-post on Instagram and Facebook. Maybe even start a Facebook group and build a community. These are all ways to increase your website’s traffic and, ultimately, how much you can sell it for. 5. Create standard operating procedures SOPs not only make your business more valuable to buyers, but they also make it easier to run and hire people to do the tasks you’ve documented. This, in turn, makes it easier to scale up your business and make more money. Essentially, an SOP is a document that outlines exactly how to do a specific task in your business step by step. They often include screenshots and even videos. Here’s an example of one of my SOPs on finding whatsapp number list and reaching out to influencers for content promotion: Example of an SOP It breaks down each step, explains the goal and process, and links to videos on how to specifically do each part of the process. Here’s an excellent guide by Sweet Process that teaches you how to make SOPs. So should you sell your website? At this point, you should know how much your website is worth and how to increase that number. If you’ve got this far, it probably means you have a profitable online business—something many people envy. Are you sure you want to sell it? For me, I made the decision to sell one of my websites I’ve been working on for nearly a decade due to personal reasons, a need for capital, and (most importantly) burnout. I was tired of working on it after all these years. It was an amazing business that mostly ran itself, but I was ready for a new chapter in my life.
