Another great way to attract a passionate audience is to build a broker site.
What is a Broker Site?
Broker sites are essentially marketplaces where individuals can buy or sell a property – including domain names, fully operational websites, other products or services, or even small brick and mortar businesses. Other broker sites sell financial products or investment packages that users can buy into.
Why Build a Broker Site?
If executed properly, broker sites are great because they serve a concrete transactional service to the people who use it. If your broker site becomes a popular place to buy and sell a specific product, you’ll have a dedicated core of users coming to your site on regular basis.
To get a feel for how successful broker sites operate, check out Flippa, which specializes in websites and domain names. If you’re interested in dealing with physical properties such as retail businesses, take a look at BizBen, a site that brokers the sale of small businesses in California.
