Building a blog that will sell fast

In order to really understand how to build a blog that will start a bidding war by buyers, we have to get inside the head of a buyer and ask questions such as
What makes a website attractive to a buyer?

What makes my website stand out from others?

Why will someone buy my website even if it has no history of profit(starter websites)?

What makes a website attractive to a buyer?
A potential buyer before buying a blog looks out for certain things, he could be looking to buy a blog that  is making profit or has made profit before, he could be looking for a blog that is more than 2 years old, he could be looking for a blog with lots of unique articles, he could be looking for a website in a particular niche, there are other things like domain name,blog ranking e.t.c In general he is looking for a website that has a little bit of the work done for him, he/she is less likely to buy a blog with just some few articles or because it has a premium theme (although i have seen people buy a website because they like the theme), he is going to buy something that looks like it requires little effort before he can start reaping the rewards.

What makes my website stand out from others?
Remember what  i wrote about people buying a website because of a premium theme?. Premium themes are beautiful, a well designed blog with a beautiful template automatically engages a potential buyer, it makes him want to know more about that particular website, also a catchy domain also helps. A short, nice and easy to remember domain name peaks interest in  every person and not just a buyer, or have you not clicked on a particular link because you found the name intriguing? …..let me know in the comments.

Why will someone buy my website even if it has no history of profit(starter websites)?
Lots of people have asked me this question.Blogs with potential,sell easily even if they don’t make profit,
A buyer might buy a starter website because, the price might be cheap, it is well optimized for search engines e.t.c. Website flippers look out for more than just profit before buying a website.

Buying a potentially profitable blog.

Before buying a website that you can sell later for profit you should look out for one of three things

Is it making profit?

How good is the traffic?

How much work does it require?

Is it making profit?
If you are looking for a website that will sell fast on the market, then buying one that already makes money is the best way to go. If things go as planned, you could enjoy a steady stream of income before deciding to sell at a later time.

How good is the traffic?

A blog without traffic is of no good to anyone except maybe the owner, so before buying a website, it is required to check how good the traffic is, where the traffic is coming from and where potential subscribers can be found, i always say that if a blog gets a massive amount of following, monetizing it becomes very easy.

How much work does it require?

Some blogs require regular updates way more than others, for example, a news blog require you to post more often than say maybe an affiliate marketing blog, so knowing just how much work a blog will require you to put in is key before deciding to buy it, if a blog requires little time in updating and maintaining it, then it will obviously be more attractive to buyers when you later decide to sell it.

    One addition is, before buying a site, check the domain history to know the site reputation. For instance, has the site been blacklisted by good? Can it be monetized?

    These are just few things to check.
