petprison.com didn’t sell. I slashed the Buy It Now price to just $50 – half of the original $100 i’d wanted.
No bids either. I think there’s a number of things that i did wrong…
- set the BIN price far too high initially.
- set a reserve of $20 – should have been 1c to encourage bids.
- made a nicer template, the current one is unique, but ugly.
My other site, stupiddrivers.net is currently at a $25 high bid – i’m pretty sure i’ll get the $45-50 i need to beat minimum wage
So i’ll try and make petprison.com nicer to look at with a few changes to the template.
I’ll also be putting snapbone.com up for sale later today I need just $40 for it to beat minimum wage.
To answer the title of the post ‘what to do when sites don’t sell’ – the answer is try and try again. Never blame the market, blame yourself. If soemthing doesn’t sell it’s because (a) nobody wants it (b) you didn’t try hard enough to sell it.
