What’s the point of reselling a website? Is it like getting rid of your old mugs at a garage sale? Hardly. Website reselling isn’t about reusing old websites. Rather, it’s about selling new websites to the companies and people who want them. This has been popping up as a money making option for people who need to pad their income.
While website reselling is a good idea, keep in mind that not all website reseller programs are equally amazing. Here are three tips for finding a quality host, and shaking off the scam artists who would love to take you for a ride.
1. What You Need to be Prepared to Do
If you want to be a website reseller, one thing you need to do is shake the notion that there is such a thing as free money lying around on the internet. Consumers are getting more and more savvy about their web experience. In other words, be prepared to work a little, and learn enough to be competent. For example, let’s say you’re reselling SEO, or Search Engine Optimization services. If an interested consumer contacts you, are you more likely to net the sale if you can quickly respond knowledgeably and confidently about SEO, or if you have to say, “Hold on a day or two so that I can contact someone and ask them about it?” The answer should be clear.
2. What You Should Look for in Great Website Reseller Packages
It’s easy and tempting to sign on with the lowest priced offer. Most websites do charge you monthly for reselling their services, a fee you make back quickly if you gather enough clients. Rather than finding the bargain bin of plans, instead, look for one that is going to adequately supply you with the information and resources you need. Do they have a number you can call? Videos you can watch to learn more about their services? Marketing assistance so that you can build up your customer base? In other words, you want to look for a reseller program that feels like a partnership, not a transaction.
3. Several Trusted Sites for Reseller Plans
By now you might be wondering what sites, exactly, are good ones. One top rated option is GoDaddy.com. They offer multiple low priced options for reselling, from a basic reseller plan that costs $8.99 per month, to a super reseller plan that costs $16.99 per month. With these website reseller packages you get a pre built website of your own, a shopping cart, traffic reporting, credit card processing, 24/7 support for your customers, and more. Hubshout, HostGator, and Reseller Club are other popular options.
