  • Great tips about flipping. I like the idea of bargaining. It usually works psychologically speaking because once you say you will give them this much discount, they are more likely to buy it.

  • Hi, this is a good idea for small home business – at least for a start. Later on, when you know how to mae great sites, you can advance your business – either making them for clients, or for yourself (e-commerce site is a great example here), but as a start – it;s great + you can begin the work even without much money to spend

  • This is a real gem of a work Atish. I was not aware of this at all. I run multiple blogs but I have been running it for soo long as I don’t know how to sell one of them. That is one of my old blog wherein I learnt things but since I don’t like the niche I wanted to sell it. But I am unaware of such things and thanks for sharing it.
    Also I checked Flippa site and they are charging certain amount for it. Is that true?

  • Excellent and much useful info. Well, yes website flipping is a great way to make money online, but when following the first option (building a website and then selling) is a tough job compared to the second option. And agreed, flippa is a great place to buy/sell website/blog and you have explained it very well. Thanks for sharing and tweeted 🙂

  • Hey Atish,

    I was looking down the comments to see if Susan has been by this post and commented. This is what she does. She builds them and flips them and is doing pretty good I might add.

    I got more into niche marketing earlier on so this wasn’t an area I wanted to venture into but I can see where it would be kind of exciting. From what she’s explained with building them and getting decent traffic to them she’s definitely profited from her efforts. She mainly uses Flippa but has sold some on the side as well.

    I hear it’s a great way to make money and you can really create quite a few sites. I have no doubt this is a great area to venture into. Thanks for sharing this and hope that those that weren’t familiar with this process are now. I’m sure you’ve definitely peaked their curiosity now!

    • Thanks Adrienne for stopping by. Website flipping is a great way to make cool cash but it needs time and effort to build a website that can be sold on great prices. Good to know that Susan does the same and getting profit. Keep Coming.

  • You can definitely make money in flipping websites, but is is a lot of work and very high risk venture. A while back I was trying to sell a couple of websites. I originally did not buy them for flipping, I just no longer needed them. They were not extremely popular but has some traffic and visibility in organic search results. As no one made any offers I let the domains go and cut my losses. So if someone planning on making money in flipping sites the better have a backing of someone who already knows how to do it with profit.
