Motion Invest released practically precisely 2 years ago! The business that was launched is not business that Motion Invest is today
. In today’s post, I want to share what has altered for Motion Invest and how business currently runs. I’ve likewise been asked questions, like”How numerous of the sites listed actually get offered?” I’ll answer that concern and a number of others today. I likewise want to open up the ledger a little bit and share a few of the numbers behind the numbers. I think these stats will be fascinating for anybody thinking about buying or offering websites and what the patterns look like in time.
The Evolution of Motion Invest
In the short history of Motion Invest, we’ve “pivoted” a couple of times.
We at first believed that having a “subscription” type website where prospective purchasers had to pay $29 a month to view all listings was the method to go. Nevertheless, in the early stages of a service where you don’t have a lots of listings, people aren’t extremely willing to sign up for a regular monthly membership.
We rapidly eliminated this paywall and it’s now complimentary to see all the listings, consisting of the domain names, with a totally free email signup.
In addition, we were exclusively focused on buying sites off-market ourselves and after that selling the sites we had actually bought on the Motion Invest marketplace.
This worked to a degree. And we still buy sites straight from time to time.
Nevertheless, about a year ago we decided that following the traditional broker design where sellers note their sites (after we veterinarian them) and pay a small brokerage fee in fact had less friction.
As an outcome, we now have a lively marketplace of buyers and offering making acquisitions for vetted material sites.
We have a group that vets each site to verify traffic and profits prior to it goes live on the marketplace.
The other intriguing that has taken place?
We were at first focused (and still are) on the smaller end of the marketplace. Our preliminary strategy was to purchase and sell content sites valued at under $50,000.
More and more sellers have come to us wanted to sell their websites valued at over $100k. As a result, we’ve now acted of deals over 6 figures.
Our biggest site sold to date was $400k.
We are still an extremely small broker with these numbers, we get it. But we feel like we are serving the smaller end of the marketplace that has frequently been disregarded by larger brokers.
We eagerly anticipate continuing to focus on smaller content sites (whatever the true meaning of “little” material sites is).

So, on average websites have actually sold for 35.5 times their regular monthly earnings.
The highest regular monthly numerous a website was cost on Motion Invest was 90x! That was for a very small website only making $20 a month, so it’s an outlier for sure. (Although there have actually been numerous sites sell for more than 50x; all on the smaller side).

Invest. Or we offer you the estimated prices of $4,335 if you were to sell on the Motion Invest Marketplace. This generally needs just about an hour of your own time to get it ready for sale, and we do the rest. There are no listing fees, however we do charge a brokerage cost if it sells (charge varies depending upon the size of the website).
We then compare to what you can expect to sell the site for on Flippa or Empire Flippers.
Flippa needs much more of your own time to get the listing all set (because you are self-listing whatever there). There is likewise a $49 listing charge and other success costs on Flippa.
This specific site example is too small to offer on Empire Flippers.
If you decide to list your website, the details you sent will then be vetted by our internal group at Motion Invest with follow up concerns as required. If your website passes our vetting process, it will go reside in 5 to 7 days generally.
Movement Invest is Moving Forward
Overall, we are continuing to move on at Motion Invest making it faster and much easier to offer your “smaller sized” niche websites.
We are dipping our toes into offering some six-figure websites, but anticipate that we will stay at the lower end of the market for the foreseeable future. This is really why we began business and seem like there are lots of “smaller” website sellers that value the focus here.
Business has developed a lot in the last 2 years, and we look forward to seeing what the next 2 years bring.
