Male Product Blog Case Study #3 (I Sold The Site for $2000

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

In case if you didn’t read case study 1 or case study 2, a good idea would be to touch those first before starting this one.

A quick summary:

I started the site in December, 2018. Being a lazy bitch, I didn’t do much other than publishing content and doing on page for the site.

Here’re the numbers till June, 2019:

Hi, I'm​ Khalid...

I travel the world and try to live a digital nomad life. Want premium goodies from me? For free?

As you can see, I spent roughly around $1380 USD till June and made $193 from the site. I was still running on a net loss of $1187 USD.

At the same time, I was heavily investing both time and money in our SEO services. Just to give you some perspective, our SEO Service already did more than $80,000 USD so far this year (till the end of July, 2019)

As I wasn’t getting time to work on my male product blog, I thought, I should probably sell it!

And that’s what I did.

I ended up selling the website for $2000 USD.

Adding the profit of $193 to that, I made, in total $2193 USD from the site in terms of revenue. Cutting down the investment of $1380 USD, I made an actual profit of $813 from the site.

Was it worth it?

No!

I should have either invested more time into it or I shouldn’t have done it in the first place. It wasn’t worth my time for the $813 USD.

However, I at least got three blog post out of it, so that’s good.

The new buyer is a big name in the affiliate space (I can’t reveal more details, unfortunately) and I am sure, the site will do well with them.

I know my plan was to break into $500/month by December, 2019 but I simply got distracted with opportunities and shiny objects.

This makes me think whether building a new content heavy website is worth my time anymore.

I don’t think it is.

But I will of course, keep on building some, simply because I like the process.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is fairly easy to build a website and sell it for $2000-$3000 USD in 6-7 months if you know what you are doing
  • The authority website industry is booming. Everyone’s interested in buying websites
  • You don’t need to go with a broker like Flippa or Empire Flippers if you have a smaller site. Email a few big names and you will be able to sell your site quite easily.
  • Spend time on your social profiles. The site was getting roughly 30,000 impressions on Pinterest when I sold it and I think it really helped in the selling process.

What Next?

I am actually already in the middle of a keyword research for another website. The last big site I sold was in 2018. I haven’t sold any big sites in 2019 and I don’t think I will either (simply because I don’t have a big one in my portfolio at this moment).

However, I am going to build a fresh big site targeting an exit in mid 2020. If you want updates about that, let me know in the comments and I will be happy to share more information with you.

So yes, our male product blog journey ends here. Leave a comment if you read all three updates.
