Looking to max out your investment returns? If so, you should be incorporating website investing into your portfolio! Daily Blog Tips reported that website investors were seeing a massive 50% ROI, stating, “most website owners are willing to let their babies go for 1 or 2 times their annual revenues. For instance, you could probably buy a website that makes $2,000 monthly anywhere from $24,000 up to $48,000. For the sake of simplicity let’s use the middle point and assume you could buy it for $36,000. This means that your annual return would be 66% (compared to 12% on real estate and 20% or 30% with a small business). Additionally, your payback period would be 1 year and a half, compared to 8.3 years with real estate and 5 or 3.3 years with a small business.”
According to Business Insider, old school investing is bringing in scant returns. As you can see from the chart below, investing the traditional way doesn’t even come close to website investing.
Are there risks? Of course, but lets take a look at the risks in other investment classes: (A) If you own real estate, and the market crashes, your losses will probably be very high, and (B) If you own stocks, and the company reports terrible earnings, your likely to lose big. Conversely, if you own a website and you lose your traffic, there’s a bunch of ways to come back from that scenario, quickly, and still earn a nice profit.
Another important issue is technical knowledge. Either you or someone you hire needs to have this knowledge, and it costs money; however, many websites are equipped with fail-safe systems, including systems backups, firewalls, and other elements that make it fairly easy for even a novice to buy a website and run it from home. Companies like GoDaddy, and Host Gator, have staff who can actually move a site, and then maintain it, for literally pennies on the dollar.
