Is this WSO only for newly site or the information can be applied for site with some time (6 months old or more)?

In this guide I focus on new web sites that can be build fast and then flipped without having to generate a ton of traffic or revenue.

It's not so much on how to get the best price for an older web site (with traffic and revenue) but more for brand new web sites.

All this is not based on theory but rather based on what a certain Flippa user does and I show how you can do something similar and build a real business from it.

Transferring Web Site After it Sold On Flippa

I have made a video that shows how to do the transfer. It's not pretty and ends abruptly but you should get an idea how easy it is.

I have send an email to all buyers.

In the beginning of last year I bought a WSO about flipping brand new site and buyers were buying those type of sites at that time. I could only sold 1 site for $125, but, failed to sell the next one. It seemed to me that buyers lost interested on those type of sites and eventually, the price of the sites decreased a lot.

I like to know is the technique that you're talking about in the WSO seems will be saturated soon/ in next few months?

This is a case study of a Flippa seller that is very successful. It does not look like what he is doing is going to be saturated any time soon.

There is a huge market for sites like this. Not everybody that want to get started with something online has the skills to build a web site. They have to start somewhere. And buying a nice web site that can be made successful is not the worst entrance to internet marketing.

I've been watching this same Flippa seller for the past six months, and I had read that Flippa seller's own (excellent) summary of what's working.

Though I haven't seen this intriguing WSO yet, I can confirm that there are things the Flippa seller is doing repeatedly... and I'm not even sure if that Flippa seller knows all of what's working. (The Flippa seller hadn't mentioned it in his own summary.) He's one of those sellers who seems to have a knack for Flippa.

The important part for others is figuring out the essential ingredients. I've figured out a couple of them on my own, but -- like I said -- I've been watching that seller for six months.

Also, I see no saturation possible. What that sellers is doing... it can be used over and over again, with unlimited success.

Regarding the transfer process: I sell on Flippa, and -- so far -- about 30% of customers accept the domain transfer immediately and use the transfer/backup files I give them, and need no further guidance.

Close to 50% pay me to transfer the files for them, which takes under 30 minutes and pays well enough that I don't mind.

The remaining 20% buy a site at Flippa, pay for it... and never collect their purchase. I still have sites -- including one sold months ago -- that are still earning me money.

I contact those buyers once every few weeks (I'm now using a form letter) and they seem happy enough, but... well, I think it's like WSOs: There are people who take the WSO and run with it immediately. There are people who download the WSO, and finally look at it, weeks later. And then there are people who buy WSOs and either never download them, or those files collect virtual dust on their hard drives, while those same people keep buying more WSOs.

One of my customers (who still hasn't collected his Flippa purchase from me) keeps writing to me with happy updates about his new plans for that site (and others he bought around the same time)... but they're all "someday" projects. As long as he's happy, I'm happy!

What I'm saying is: Going into Flippa, don't worry about transfers. They're either easy or profitable (usually they're both), or you'll just shrug and keep the domain name + site until the customer gets around to accepting it.

For transferring sites I mainly use Leonardos Magic site cloner. After that I've used wpTwin and backup buddy, but Leonardos is hands down the easiest and fastest. You can do a search for it and find the wso for like $27 or $37. It was a game changer for my business.

Can anyone else comment on this aspect of selling new sites?
I started flipping (selling) sites on Sitepoint, before they created Flippa. I've been selling sites on Flippa since the site went live. (although, I do take flipping 'breaks' now and then)

I can absolutely assure you that a brand new domain with a site installed but NO traffic and NO revenue WILL sell on Flippa.

And sell for good money - enough to make a worthwhile profit for your time and expenses

I've done it and so have many of my colleagues and others I don't even know. I've sold many new sites on domains 1-7 days old for $200 and up, some over $500.

Potential buyers look at many things, not JUST current revenue or traffic. The domain name itself, the content (quality of, ease of adding more), how much or little work it will take to run the site, what ELSE is being included -- a product (ebook, report, plr or custom made, autoresponder series, promotional videos, etc), articles and other content, software, plugins and other tools that may be included. If the site is about a specific product... a well-written review, videos and photos of product, price comparisons -- all this is of value to the potential buyer, and sometimes more valuable to certain buyers than traffic and income as they have OTHER plans.

I am not talking out my behind here, people. I've been featured in another thread as a noteworthy Flippa seller. Flipping sites is one of the 4 main income streams in my business.

To make it YOUR income stream, You DO need to keep track of your COST (domain reg, hosting, listing fee, success fee, any OTHER ncurred expense such as outsourcing/site graphics) to determine exactly what you need to break even and make a PROFIT -- so you HAVE an income stream and stay in business.

There is no issue with any niche topic or type of site getting saturated on Flippa. Well, Flippa IS saturated with crap. And most of the crap sells for very VERY cheap. Those sellers are losing money. But those sites are not your competition (at least, they shouldn't be because YOU won't list thin, crappy sites, right?)

Not every site you list on Flippa will sell the first time. Most will, but some will not. Just simply wait a little, then relist. In the meantime, you can be building and listing up other sites that sell.

Flippa has a LOT of sellers who are selling their thin thin thin, day old sites for less then $100 (those crap sites I mentioned above). Newbie, UNsavvy buyers will buy the cheapski listings (that's food for another looong post, I dare not go there here). But for every newbie UNsavvy buyer, there is a knowlegable buyer who is looking for YOUR well-built site with good content that just happens to be in THE niche they intend to dominate. Seasoned Flippa buyers know how to use the site to find what they are looking for, and they skim right over the crap.

With so many other affiliate/cpa/etc internet income models, you are not in sole control of your income. But with the site-flipping for income model, YOU are in TOTAL control. Your income in any given period depends on how many sites you build and flip.

I haven't purchased this WSO, so I can't comment on it. But I CAN say that building and flipping sites is an income-generating model that works, and will continue to work as long as there IS an internet.

Hi I have sold around 100 plus sites on flippa, It can be a little up and down to start with but once you have a customer and start building a list then you are really on your way, I keep a spreadsheet of all the sites I have sold and I have made a good profit over all, To confirm what I am saying is true if you PM me I will be willing to give you my flippa id so you can check out what I am saying is true.

Hope this has helps, great WSO by the way

Hello HP,

I just bought this and downloaded the pdf file. I am having trouble opening it with my Adobe reader.

I get the following error- "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

I tried to download again and got the same error.

What should I do?

Thanks Michael

Thank you very much for responding to my email so quickly. I was able to download the report just fine.

I just finished reading the the entire eBook and liked what I saw. I already have one site I developed that looks similar to the examples you described.

I am going to make a goal of listing it on Flippa this week and see what kind of results I get.

The best part of the ebook is all of the valuable resources you provided. Really awesome stuff here!

Thanks again

Hpgoodboy, I just bought your book.

Great product! I love it! People should create more of products like these instead of the scam garbage that is out there.

I used to resell websites on ebay when I was still in high school making some nice cash. Then, I don't know what happened, ebay website section got pretty bad.

I can design much better and create websites than what sellers sell on Flippa.

By the way, can anyone let me know for about how much I can sell a Metaphysical website on Flippa if it is all 100% unique with very powerful unique copy and a great unique product?

Another project that I want to build and sell is this:

My friend used to flip cars. Now he went back to Europe and I interwied him on a tape recorder on how it is all done. Then I got it transcribed.

He really gives out all the secrets to flipping cars and he gives secrets that he used to beat the in town competition.

So I will have this great ebook. I want to build a website for it and make it a ClickBank product. For how much approximately I can sell something like this?

Thank you guys

Hey hpgoodboy,

You resemble a famous and stylish actor in the UK - Ian Bill in Eastenders. Amazing resemblance. I had to share that with you buddy.

Okay, I'm interested in your product and was thinking of starting a website flipping business. Could you please answer my concerns:-

1) I can create basic 5 page wordpress sites but not good at writing articles. Would it be better to outsource for $30 and would that include unique articles written for us?

2) How much could an average newbie make with this business per month?

3) You estimated approx. $100 for everything but does that include a plugin/script you mentioned earlier?

4) Would the sites you recommend be in demand for years to come? If short term, could you recommend other types of sites once the first type is low in demand? Maybe you include it as a bonus to keep us informed about new demand sites.

Many thanks buddy.

Ross

Read it!

I must say I did think this was going to be another one of them WSO's that "Market To Marketers". I recommend to everyone from newbie to advanced it makes a brilliant read and also has some very good models and other interesting ideas that I didn't even know about.

People have been selling turn key sites on flippa ever since the website was opened its an idea that can NEVER be saturated, It's just too big! And an amazing amount of niches to choose from.

Thanks for the great read HPGoodBoy!

Too funny! I assumed that I knew the Flippa seller HP studied for this WSO... and it's a different one than the the Flippa seller I've been watching closely. Different seller, different websites, similar results. Interesting!

Me too, I'm guessing you were thinking of Sunshine/Yaros, I have his WSO and it is similar. He appears to have grossed $130,000 from Flippa, and also says he makes way more from repeat sales, post sales SEO etc.
Sorta makes you think there might be something here worth getting into.

Hi Ross,

Thank you for the compliments.

1) I would always prefer to outsource as otherwise you are tied to creating web sites. It can be a lot of fun building web sites but there are only so many hours in a day which would then possibly limit your expansion. You have to do your own research as far as pricing is concerned.

2) I can not tell you how much an average newbie can make. There are just too many variables. An 85 year old lady that just discovered the internet would be considered a newbie as well as the 16 year old teenager that found this post on his iPhone. The old lady would probably spend the next three month fumbling with all kinds of challenges (how to switch on a computer, what on earth is blog?, is Flippa a dolphin show? etc.) while our teenager reads over the stuff, gets what it means, asks one of his buddies to throw up a web site and uses his allowance to list that site on Flippa instead of going to the movies on Saturday. Result: that old lady would eventually make money if she would continue to work at it and learn and she would be more than happy if she sold her first web site in 4 months from now while our teenager might have it all taped after a few days and could be called a professional in a few months.

3) There are all kinds of plugins or scripts or other tools that you can buy or not. Some are free and some cost money. The purpose of this ebook is not to sell any other products but to show you what is possible. Whether you later decide to invest in additional tools is up to you and is not included in any example calculations.

4) The main focus of this WSO is on a case study of one particular seller. He has obviously figured out what is needed and wanted right now. That does not mean that he can predict the future. He offers what people want right now. You are going to learn about several types of web sites in this WSO and I can see how some of these sites will be in very high demand in years to come.

This means when there are things that I decide to add you'll get it for free. For example in the beginning there was no explanation on how to transfer a site once you successfully sold it on Flippa. I made a short video and notified all buyers about it and this was free of charge.

Yes, there are many seller on Flippa that are very successful. And while some offer similar sites you will find that each one has carved out his special niche and somehow is a little different from the others.

If you take what is successful and learn from it without exactly copying it you can enjoy raving success almost overnight.

Sorta makes you think there might be something here worth getting into.

Yes, Stef, income levels of $130k or $150k are not too shabby even if you have costs that you have to subtract from it.

And what you see there is only the front end and as everybody knows the real profit is on the back end.

Hi Martin,

This is a case study of a seller on Flippa. I looked at what he does and dissect what he does so that others can learn from it. Whether I have similar auctions or not is completely irrelevant.

I'm curious as to why you use someone else's work as a case study for this WSO. Does this mean that you've not used this method yourself. And if not, why not? I, for one, would be much more likely to spring for this were you to outline your own experiences with site flipping.

Please explain.

Thanks.

A couple months ago I have actually released a WSO where I wrote about some of my own auctions.
http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...-friendly.html

But this WSO here is happens to be a case study of something that somebody else is doing.

Okay. Thanks. I just wanted reassurance that this was something you were actively involved in. Will pick up a copy.

I'm just posting so I can come back to this later. Seems very interesting. I'm extremely good with graphic design, public speaking, site building. It seems to me like this may be something that I should look into. I never even heard of flippa until I somehow came across this site while trying to find other information about micro jobs. Interesting.

You should go to Flippa and do the research yourself. That is always best.

There are also some people that do not have the time to do the research themselves and even if they have the time they do not know what to look for.

When I want to learn about a topic I buy all books that I can lay my hands on. For example I just bought all the best selling books on a subject that I am going to write about. Invested about $250 in that. I am not suggesting that you should do that but that is how I operate (complete different topic, has nothing to do with Flippa).

Oh and it's not that I copy what I read elsewhere. I just want to know what is out there and I want to understand a subject or topic thoroughly.

So, if you think you should do all research directly on Flippa: go ahead.

On the other hand, if you like books (or ebooks) and like to read what others have to say and maybe learn something in the process and come up with new ideas faster: feel free to buy my WSO.

Either way it's completely fine with me.

I bought this and I would say it was a good buy. I know some people who will nitpick everything, but here is what you have to keep in mind.

1. The author identified several niche markets that worked well for one Flippa seller AND gave info on how to get the scripts used to build / monetize sites.

2. The author also gave some great reseller and low priced SEO options. That alone is worth the cost if you use it on any site or resell.

3. Internet Marketers are in the information selling business. If you buy an Ebook or WSO and you learn something of get a new resource to help you, is that not worth $10?

If you are interested in buying/selling domains & websites this is a great resource.

Hey buddy, thanks for answering my concerns above. I have discussed Flipping websites with my many warrior friends and they also think it is a solid business to go into. The secret is to reinvest some of the profits into getting state of the art plugins, themes and other essential tools.

How quick could I start once i've read your ebook?

Cheers

As I do not know your background it is hard to answer.

Lets say you have some basic skills related to operating a computer, sending emails, using a word processing program like Microsoft word, know how to use Paypal etc. then you should be able to start right away.

If on the other hand you are still playing with the bubble wrap of you first computer that arrived last week and you are happy that you can now finally log in and connect to the internet, then some additional study and practice would be needed.

This guide is not for complete internet beginners; not because it is difficult but I assume that the reader already knows how to for example create an account at Flippa or how to do create a listing there.

Considering WP plugins, themes, ... are we allowed to sell these in a website on Flippa?
I'm thinking about licenses here...

This is a WSO about a Flippa Case study and not a general guide on what to sell on Flippa.

But in general you can only sell what you own or what you have the legal rights to do so (meaning you may only sell it if you have a written license from the lawful owner of the rights that explicitly states that you may do so and that the venue for selling said item is in accordance with the license terms).

While that all might sound nice, I am not a lawyer so you should seek legal advice from someone that is specialized in that field.

Very interesting WSO.

I'm just putting my shoes into Flippa buyers. Why I would buy a newly built site for $100-$300 with no traffic or revenues where I can outsource the whole job much cheaper than this?

Maybe they don't know where to look and 'outsourcing' scares them?
If the salestext is well made, i can imagine someone buying these sites, thinking it's 'almost' pressing a button to make big cash.
It's often in the salestext -> almost FULL Autopilot, 100% outsourced, ...

Well, you can outsource it a lot cheaper. That means you already have a lot of knowledge that others do not have.

There is nothing wrong with buying a web site for a few hundred dollars.

And yes, some people expect to be a millionaire after just buying a web site. That is similar to people buying a WSO and expecting somehow that the money will just come in.

Look at it from this angle: how many hours have you spend online to get your knowledge up to that point? Maybe you have even bought a few books or WSOs on the subject.

Only because something seems easy for you does not mean that it is easy for others. And another aspect: I can fix my car myself for example (I am a mechanical engineer). But I have better uses for my time. So I let my mechanic do the job and I happily pay him for doing it.

I just bought this book and will post a review in sometime.
I also did study this guy, at first I was amazed, as he really did a good job ( other than the sites in listing showing "made $$$$$ in last 7 days or 15 days" LOL )
Actually there are two sellers on flippa, one who took the right way(probably in your book, as I've not opened it yet)and worth watching, and other guy trying to follow this guy and is really close to touch the same figures. Second guy is selling his most of the sites showing little revenue like "made $15 in last month etc " ...
I'm on flippa since last 7 months, was scammed two times(as I was completely new to online business), then started studied people scamming, selling brand new sites, branded sites, saturated CB products, about saturated products, selling high ranked sites and much more.. different ways to earn money.
For first 3-4 months I was under impression that market(atleast flippa) will saturate soon, but I was simply simply wrong. Point is there are 1000s of new buyers(completely new, enthusiastic to make money, a bit scared, and most important, most of them want to feel proud to have an online business).
After my study I took 3 websites and started to roll for one month, (first I was putting awstats, which I dropped later. If site is not making money then traffic details adds little or no value until it has >1 PR ) and made a good $$$, then improved the process, bought new tools etc...
I involved one of my friend from India who is enthusiastic about designing and loves colors, and buyers are crazy about clean and bright colored websites..
Now, I'm entering in different niches and would like to really provide value, as now I realize(after running all experiments) that I didn't entered to market to sell crap( for this I've my full time software job in multinational company in europe and earn pretty good against indian rupee ).
Also I know not all of domains will be renewed for second year, but this rolling sites in fixed niches give me money and experience to build some good stuff.
Coming to the book, I've bought this book to find what tools are mentioned, about process- if I can improve mine.
I'm reading it now, will post an honest review in an hour or two...
Best,
Sarvo13

Here is my review.
Excellent and must buy. hpgoodboy has covered topics, which really needs time to investigate, so why to spend time on stuff which you can buy only for $10.
I can say this from my experience, as I wanted to get one movie site done from a freelancer, it took apporx 3 months, 3 times more money and site is more than 4 GB and funny part is its not working yet(while replicating it sucks up)
So all guys looking to make $$, here is your book. It does not show how to make great products but yes it will show you how to start making money on flippa.

My plan:There are few things which I found now and never looked into, so to be implemented by this saturday and get drunk later(yaeee party)

@hpgoodboy , I saw that you sent a video "how to transfer website" .May be you would like to mention some tools ( I bought one WSO today to migrate/clone wp sites and it looks promising)... It will really help to flip 7-8 sites daily with daily full time job

I just got this in:



This does not look like she build and listed the type of site that this WSO covers. But still it is nice to see that this WSO worked as the ignition kind of to prompt her to list her site now and sell it.

No, I do not provide any bonus - my products are valuable; I do not have to bribe anybody to buy them. No, seriously when was the last time you used any of those bonus items that are supposed to make the product look better? When I see a product that has a lot of bonus items I usually run... the other way.
