A professional optimized, content rich, Google Adsense / Affiliate Website with 200+ Articles, keyword related RSS feed and a dynamic Amazon Store, containing over 20,000 products. The store is dynamic and tied in with Amazon Web Services and updated by Amazon, leaving you with no maintenance on the website.
I understand that for -it seems to me - a fairly modest payment of about $120 I get ownership of the domain name, the code of the existing website and any spin off commission by way of affiliate stuff from Amazon etc.
Normally I would just build my own website and put my products on there but this gives me the advantage that I can put my relatively few products in a similar product rich sales environment.
It seems a very good idea for me.
What is the opinion of others more knowledgeable than me ?
What is the vendor's angle on this ? It seems too good to be true . Even the domain name should be worth the money never mind the code for the website.
I presume I can change the products featured so that my own stuff takes precedence over generic existing stuff ?
Any commericial take on this is welcomed
professional optimized, content rich
If the site package had any serious income potential there's no way the developer would sell it for $120; they'd promote it themselves.
How will you host it? By paying an ongoing fee to host it on the developer's server? That may be the income stream that the developer is after ...
How easy would it be to move the site to a different server? Are there any restrictions?
There should be a catch. I would, personally, never buy a turnkey website. Partly because I think this is one of the most idiotic ideas on the web...
You will just lose money. Have you done the keyword popularity research? Have you calculated how much time would you need to break even on those $120 and start making money? Never buy anything without a research and a business plan.
Some sites will never make money and some keywords are not popular enough or just the contrary - too popular to make it impossible to compete.
If I do a bit of SEO I may be able to get some traffic .
Those are just a few of the possible catches.
1. Free articles (read as duplicate content)
2. Not the best of domain names (my-keyword1-keyword2-keyword3.com)
3. Not a unique design
4. No traffic
Back in the haydays of AWS sites, I used to sell sites like that, including an amazon store and 5 links to them from my own directories at $50 a piece. I don't sell any anymore btw, so please don't contact me ;)
