Having a ready made site, particularly a niche site, definitely has its advantages over going it alone and doing it yourself. If you’re a beginner in the online business world, there are already several dozen things you need to learn, and some months before you’ll see positive results, so being able to eliminate the whole website making process gives you a massive increase to the likelihood that you’ll reach success.
I’ve seen all too many people quit and fail after getting frustrated with the finer points of their websites. I even remember the first website I built, getting incredibly frustrated because I couldn’t set up something as simple as a Youtube video gallery. I eventually figured it out after wasting about 2 days, and I realized that learning how to build a website was going to take some time.
One thing I know is that if I had been able to have my site custom built by somebody else, or if I had been able to pick my site out from a list of pre-made sites, I would have started earning money 3 to 4 months earlier than I actually did. For 99% of beginners, those 4 months can make the difference between success and failure.
There are a lot of different things to consider when it comes to buying a site though, so don’t just assume that it’s the right thing to do and go off and buy the first one you find (that’s how a lot of people end up wasting money).
