Flipping Websites The Online Entrepreneur’s Answer to Flipping Properties


One of the hottest internet topics today is “flipping websites.” You hear
about people buying domain names, and then turning around and selling them
for a profit. At first look, it appears to be an extremely complicated
process and something you’d need real connections within the marketing
world to get into, but it’s really not. Just look at a website (or a domain
name) as being a property in the real estate market. Some of them are
jewels that are just waiting to be renovated, and then sold for a large

There are 2 ways to do a “flip”. You can do a “short-term flip”, or you can
do a “long-term flip”. Short-term flips are generally tougher to turn large
profits on, but every once in a while one can make a hefty margin when
advertising the domain name to the right potential buyers. All my
experiences in “flipping sites” have come by doing long-term flips.
Moreover, I like to find “jewels” out there in the marketplace, and then
build out high quality content on them. Then after sitting on them for a
while, I sell them for a hefty profit. My biggest success in doing so
resulted in a profit of $171,200. I purchased a website for $1,800, and
later sold that same website for $173,000. That wasn’t a fluke either,
within that same year I purchased a domain name for $200, and flipped it
within 6 months for $60,000. The trick is to find a domain that’s a true
gem and that’s primed to rank well in the major search engines. Then
building out the website to the point that it’s becoming a nice revenue
stream, and selling it off at SitePoint or another website marketplace.

Of the entire process, the only somewhat challenging part is building out a
website that quickly becomes a decent revenue stream. However, if you have
the right tools, and know how to use them it is really quite simple. The
average person is 100% capable of doing it, whether you believe it or not.
If your dream is to work for yourself, flipping websites might just be in
your future.
