Established Tile Contractor Website For Sale


I have closed shop and moving back to Georgia to retire. I no longer need the site. This website has been up for over 8 years now and generates lots of traffic and quality leads. I am looking to sell the " Domain Name - Website Files And All Content. The ficticious name will be cancelled after sale for your purchase if interested. This is an established website and will pay for itself in no time. Check the site and make me an offer. If not sold I would be interested in finding contractors to sell the generated leads too. If interested, just shoot me an email.

Website - http://www.countrycustomtile.com/

Check Site - http://www.sitevaluecalculator.com/

My Email - [email protected]

I don't think you'll get close to face value for it. Half if your lucky.

Page Views and Hits are two different animals.

I will do some extra research myself, but i'm not expecting to get face value. That is why I for folks to make offer. If I dont sell the site I can always sell the leads. I'm just asking for offers.

Re: Established Tile Contractor Website For Sale


I cannot imagine you'd be able to sell your domain name unless you found a person willing to change their company name. ABC Tile surely wouldn't want a domain named countrycustomtile, ya know.

OTOH, I hear there is a starving tile artist in your area that had to quit the industry and become a hobo. Now if you could sell leads to person like that, you might have an income source. Of course, selling leads to folks that deal with gun-drawing, adultery-minded, craigslist whiny subs, celebrity home customers might drive you back to doing your own tile.

Turn the domain / site into a reroute to ABCTile.com.

Re: Established Tile Contractor Website For Sale


Have considered selling the whole business, not just the website?

The website + clients, business reputation, positive image, etc. would be more valuable to someone just starting out in business or trying to grow their existing business.

Re: Established Tile Contractor Website For Sale


the business is closed and I have been selling the leads generated. It's not a big deal if I sell or keep. I will get a few dollars either way it goes. I'm not trying to trick anyone. I have done multiple searches on traffic and they all come up different. I know that my website has good rankings and I get quality traffic. No paid leads, it's all from organic search. It can be used to rederict to your site or kept like it is for additional leads. Oh well, no worries. Have a great day.

Re: Established Tile Contractor Website For Sale


I ran into this situation about 5 years ago. I think selling the leads is going to be your best bet. What I did was change the domain name of my company to a pretty generic name, and even told people I was going to operate like a lead service. Most customers won't mind- they want the path of least resistance. Just find a company in town willing to pay for leads (it is simple to find one), and you can sell them for $10/pop. Won't make you tons of money, but it might be an extra steak dinner each month. Good luck

Ts Bob, I appreciate the comment. I'm actually getting more than $10 per lead as it goes. It's all dependent on the job, I was just seeing what offers I could get. I would just like to get out from under it as I have other things to consentrate on. I'm not looking to make a killing just trying to get a reasonable price. I know the website is worth something to someone as it has great organic search rankings. Thanks for the comments and best of luck to you.

Have you approached those that are buying your leads to buy the site from you?
