Today we put online a calculator that can determine much is a website. We have done it because this is one of the questions that I am usually asked in class. Surely, if you have a website, you have also asked yourself "How much is my website worth?".
To find out how much your website is worth, first ask yourself some questions, and then we will indicate how much you could bill with an advertising-based business model and how much in an e-commerce based business model. With this we are able to make an initial evaluation of your website that can be useful in case you need to evaluate it.
How to calculate the value of a website? and How to calculate the turnover of a business online?
Every day I see business plans made by my students in predicting revenue from advertising or e-commerce totally exaggerated. This tool can help predict income of a portal based on their traffic. Thus, the performance of the financial plan in a business plan can go extrapolating growth of a website (which are a function of network externality of the business) and from these data and with the help of this tool, you can predict potential advertising revenue.
The issue of determining the growth of a portal based on network externalities of their business model is not easy. In a business where the growth model of its users is linear, usually it grows very slowly. In a business type marketplace (where supply and demand, such as Solostocks.com) They are growths of between 12% and 15% per month (geometric) in a business network type (eg Linkedin) growths are much stronger and can exceed 20% monthly geometric.
In this regard, when I worked in Intercom I wrote an article that may be of interest: Why free content raises the billing? (OGame)
Returning to the subject of calculating the income of a portal, if we are able to extrapolate the growth in the number of users of our online service, with this tool we can have a potential clue to the billing page. So you can help us get more realistic business plans when the portal business model is based on selling advertising.
By the way, I almost forgot ... if you want to know how much is a website worth, here is the link to the calculator:
