of the biggest misconceptions I have come across is that to make it big in
blogging you have to start from scratch.
if you are not able to maintain your blog, it is just a matter of time before
your website dies down and you lose your investment.
both of these issues can be tackled with one simple thing: domain flipping.
flipping is not limited to domains; it is applied to websites as well as for
applications and online businesses. With the internet, you can sell almost
everything online. You need to find the right audience to pitch to.
How does domain flipping tackle the above two issues?
- If you don’t want to start from scratch, how about buying a working website which is generating either some traffic or revenue. It can be said as a micro-acquisition. Although for this you will require some money beforehand.
- If you are not able to maintain your website, how about selling it for a good amount? People love websites that can be scaled. To make websites from scratch is a drag and if you have a good traffic-generating website, you can earn a good amount.
Why Sell and Buy Websites?
As a buyer:
you are entering the blogosphere, you might want to start from scratch.
the problem from starting from scratch is that you will have to spend a lot of
time thinking about the theme for your website, domain name, what the logo
should be. There are a lot of necessities that need to strike off your
checklist before you even get to produce actual content.
a website will cut this part out. You will have a registered website with
themes, logos, and banners. They might also have other social media accounts to
promote their website. You need to come with new strategies to increase the
can also buy domain names, have it with you and sell later at higher prices.
People have made a good amount of money off this. Some people create fully
functional websites and then flip them over for a good sum of money.
As a seller:
often happens when your interest vanishes from your website. Or, maybe it is
because you have committed your time to other activities. The bottom line is:
it’s getting tougher and tougher for you to maintain the website.
than waiting for the website to slowly die, with a minor investment, you can
get a 4-5 figure price for your website (for starters; if you have sufficient
stats to appeal).
You are not limited to websites, though; you can also sell your applications, online businesses, and domain name to cash in for bucks.
