Many expats are interested in online business. For some it’s a means to provide a full-time income to enable them to live abroad. Others seek to earn some extra cash online while they’re a trailing spouse, just travelling, or otherwise unable to find suitable employment. Some people even get started in this because they enjoy it and what was originally a hobby can sometimes turn into an interesting way to make some extra money.
One way of getting involved in online business is to own a website (or more, if you are so inclined). It can be hard work but also a lot of fun too. It’s what I’ve been doing for almost 15 years now. But it’s not always easy, and for those who look for easy ways to make (so-called) passive income, there are many pitfalls. This book attempts to steer a course through the dangers and help you win the game.
Presented as a quest, this comprehensive guide to buying websites leads the reader through a series of challenges on the journey to claim the prize—to successfully buy a website without losing an arm and a leg on the way.
The book goes step-by-step through the whole process of buying a website: deciding whether a website is needed in the first place and, if so, whether to buy or build from scratch; considering what the website is intended to achieve, and what sort of website is best suited to achieving it; examining where to look, what to look for, and what dangers to look out for along the way; establishing the value of the website; subjecting it to close scrutiny; negotiating and completing the deal.
As you progress through the book, you’ll read about:
|Part I: Accepting the challenge
|Part II: Targeting your quest
|Part III: Claiming the prize(Chapters 8-11)||
The Buyer’s Quest shows you how to tackle as much as possible on your own, so that you can save money on professional fees by only getting professional help when necessary, rather than being handheld and spoonfed by an expensive nanny every step of the way.
