As you might expect, you can buy big or small. You can start small and then invest in a larger business as your confidence grows, or you can increase the probability of your initial success by purchasing a larger, more stable business from the beginning. Although websites sell for as little as a few hundred dollars, the value of a website business is in an established customer base and a mature process for attracting customers and earning an income from those customers. You may choose to buy a very low-end website as a learning step, but we recommend that you invest at least $10000 in your first website. The more you invest, the more likely you are to walk away with a stable business. To give you a very rough idea of investment requirement, websites earning a net monthly profit of $10000 sell for anywhere from $240000 to $480000 with a mean price of about $300000 depending on the business model and a variety of other factors. There are also more financing options now than ever before.
