Good day!

I need your advice cause I do not know were I can sell this ptoduct.
Let me explain what is it about:

I have some ready wordpress sites. Each site are about some niche - Finance, Sport, Diet, etc. All sites are un-hosted and without domain names. Each site has unique design and UNUIQUE content - there are more than 100 pages of 100% unique articles per every site(about 100k characters). Sites are adsense ready with huge number of wordpress plugins (all plugins are installed and activated).

Sites do not have domain names and they are 100% unique!
I want to sell each site only once!
Plus there are some instruction how to set up sites, promote them and monetize.

So, I can suggest: fully ready niche wordpress site with unique design and content. And I can help to establish it on your hosting for free.

I need help regarding:

At what price can I sell them?
Where can I sell these sites?
What is the best way to get money?

Thanks a lot!
Igor.

>>What Price?

Difficult to say. There's no indication of the quality of the content, no established traffic, no inbound links, no history to speak of. Just a content platform with no guaranteed income.

>>Where can I sell these sites?

Craigslist comes to mind.

>>What is the best way to get money?

If you're confident that the sites will earn money for others, why not buy domain names, host them and let them earn money for you? At the very least, create some for yourself, market them, then show others their income potential when they inquire about the sites you have for sale.

I would agree, I think most people that will pay you any kind of significant money for the sites will want to see them up and running with a domain, which is an important part of the equation. They will probably want to see them producing cash flow as well. Just buying a site and content probably won't earn you a lot of cash. If I were approached with such an offer I would be asking the question digitalghost asked, if they are such great sites why aren't you making money off them.

Now if you get domain names for them, set up AdWords and get a base level of traffic and income now I think you have something worth selling.

he is talking about templates... traffic etc. have no bearing... he is trying to sell his design work.

My answer to you, is not much, given all the free choices out there.

a custom template you can probably get about $500 for... sadly, people are cheap :(

he is trying to sell his design work.

He thinks he is trying to sell his design work. However the unique content and niche material puts a different spin on it. I am not sure anyone looking at what he is selling would view it as design work. I think they will see it as a possible business opportunity, but only one half finished.

There is a specialised market for this type of product - microsites. I am thinking 5-10-page sites, not 100 pages each. This isn't a MFA audience.

AdSense would be irrelevant but quality of content (the text) is paramount. Since these would be hosted on the customer's domains, the prior history or traffic is also irrelevant.

Start-up sites typically sell for $100 - $300 on SitePoint.

If you have some traffic & income though, you'll get much more... It may be worthwhile to "age" them for 30, 60 or 90 days and get a little bit of traction going to them first.
