  • Website Valuation: How to Determine a Website's Value - Blogtrepreneur - For Busy Entrepreneurs
    we need to discount future cashflows In order to discount future cashflows we need to choose a discount rate There are a number of ways to choose an appropriate discount rate see here You then map out the cashflows of the website discount them back to their value today known as the Net Present Value or NPV add up the NPVs coming from the different cashflows and arrive at a valuation I come from a Finance background and I think the DCF method is tremendously useful for valuing a wide range of assets but for websites I don t think that it s particularly useful Remember we mentioned Garbage In Garbage Out earlier This is what we were talking about If you were trying to value a large company like Walmart then a DCF model would probably be valuable you know how many new stores they re opening you know how profitable new stores tend to be and you know that Walmart is relatively recession proof Thanks to these factors you have a reasonable shot at forecasting the future profitability of a company like Walmart and so a DCF model makes sense because the inputs you re using future cashflows earnings are likely to be reasonably accurate Websites on the other hand are pretty volatile assets Even the most stable websites can see huge drops in earnings due to a Google update or huge increases in earnings because a product or post goes viral It s a fool s errand to try and predict a website s profitability two or three years into the future let alone the 5 or 10 years that most DCF models use The DCF model is very precise it feels good because you re doing a lot of math and it gives you a nice exact figure But when buying or selling an asset you should never mistake precision for accuracy Precision without accuracy is pointless an archery target with more circles on it makes for a more precise target but it s ultimately useless if you miss the target altogether The DCF model relies on reasonably accurate forecasts of future cashflows and accurately predicting the future of a website years in advance is next to impossible Replacement Cost This method is relatively straightforward and is best used for sites that are relatively new or aren t generating a lot of earnings Essentially you figure out how much it cost to put the site together and that s how much it s worth to you Now sellers will often claim that they have invested X into a site these claims are almost always grossly exaggerated IF you want to use the replacement cost method you need to work backwards and come up with your own figure for how much you think the site would have cost to put together Imagine a new business that owns a machine that prints t shirts the business has no customers and is making no money How might you value
