What do you think about this method?

Hi people, first of all, i know that my topic does not belongs to this sub-forum but i can't find any other which is related to flipping domains and web sites so i think this one will do
So i am thinking about doing this :

1. Buy domain on auction - auction.godaddy.com seems good, you can find very good domains with cool names,domain age more than 4 years, top level domain, domains which already have like 50+ linkings on alexa.com ranking and even PR5 domains for as low as 40-50 $ !
2. Make a web site related to the domain name, probably some kind of a wordpress blog, maybe even with auto blogging feature.My web sites are going to be with unique web design since i am a web designer that is not a problem
3. Try to make some SEO, link building and stuff, just to make some kind of traffic, but since my domain already have backlinks (because i purchased it with them on auction ) and Google page rank is good, that should not be a huge problem.
4. Wait some time till i see some traffic results.
5. Try to sell it for, at last, 150-250 USD on flippa or some other web site auction site.

Then, once i earn some money from this method, i will invest money in premium domains, which costs like 300-400 USD and make a very good design and perform bigger seo campaign and then try to sell web site for bigger money.

What do you think about this method?I think it is a better to start flipping domains and web sites with already established domains in stead of brand new domains.

    I don't think this is the right section for your question. This is the CPA section.

    Anyway, I think you might need to ask yourself what you'll actually be making per hour. It sounds like you'd be better off just doing web design for someone else, and charging them 500 bucks.

      Well my advise will be to give some time to content , build traffic and make 10X more than this 100 or two bucks thing ... literlly if you are willing to give some time to content you can do really make big money ... and your plan seems too good to be true . you are misisng so many things like monitization , seo etc etc .. seo is not all about setting up an auto blog and start building crappy links .. focus more on content .. really when i am working on my own websites i never care about domain age or backlinks all i do is i create unique and high quality content .,. which my website visitors really like ... I know i am making too less money than many spammers out there in internet world (each website of mine makes about 100 bucks a day ) but what happened recently with people who were using blackhat they all vanished from google because of recent update but i am still where i was and even my serps are more stronger than before, why because i was fiocusing on content instead of gaining links i just did social bookmarking (for off page) and thats it ... other than that i only focused on quality of content ..

      And thats what i did with new domains

      so my advise will be to focus more on content and try to improve user experience on your websites .

      I know that this is a bad section, but i can't find any better, and it is somehow connected with making web sites and getting traffic.
      To be honest i would like to work as a web designer, but it is very hard to find a job nowadays because freelancing portals are takeovered by cheap freelancers from India and Pakistan, they are working for silly low amounts and i do not want to work a 30-40 hours product for 300 USD.
      I also started thinking about making my own web sites with content and try Google AdSense, but i am not sure how will that go, since i am not very good at SEO, i do know some basics, but i am not sure how to get real traffic, a seo campaign for a single keyword can take up to 1 year, and more :S.
      I am a little bit confusing, i am albe to do a lot of things, web design, video editing, photo editing, marketing campaigns, backlinking...a lot of things, but i just do not know how to make money out of it (.
      I am trying to make something from LinkedIn, i have a profile with 750 connections and i don't know what to do with them haha.
      If anybody can give me some advice i would be highly thankfull.
      Basically, i would be very happy if i could earn at last 5000 USD per month, that would be great.

    very correct. Focus on (quality)contents. Try to keep in mind that you are making contents to give information to your readers and not just for the sake of having contents.

    I would have suggest you post this on the internet marketing section. You seems to be talking basically about website flipping. It's a cool business, just that I'm not sure you can get a good domain with such PR for such an amount, auction or no auction.
    Where you got the domain and the position it was when you got it matters less. What you've turned it into is what matters and the domain name's quality (backlinks, no. Of letters, dashes, etc) matters as well.
    I also support everyone that talked about contents.
    Considering those stuffs will help you get good money in return for your websites.
    Regards

    Personally I will tell you this plan will work for sure.

    Make sure you have your detail written like a holy land for lazy internet marketer. I mean, lazies probably attract to $500 a hand!! 100% Autopilot!

      Haha nice one

      Well, my biggest problem is, i can't understand where to get a traffic from.I do know that people are using facebook, twitter, linkedin, emails, forums, yahoo answers and stuff like that to get targeted traffic, but i am just not sure if that works?

      And there is one more thing, if i could make a web site, with decent traffic, cool looking design, good PR rank and so on, which could earn 50-100 USD per day via AdSense, why should i sell it for just 300 or 400 USD?I could make 3 or 4 sites, and if all of them earn just 50 USD per day, that's 200 USD per day in total, and that is around 6000 USD per month and that is very nice cash.And i could keep making those sites and for a year or two i could have at last 10 web sites which could make 100 USD or even more per day each, thats 1000 USD per day and that is insane !

      What do you think about that guys?Maybe i should purchase some AIO SEO tool and start doing it?It's not a problem to me to write an articles, i am, personaly, interested in a lot of stuffs and i could write about cars, video games, health industry, movies, computers and IT technology...Maybe that's a good idea?It takes some time to start seeing first cash, but it is worth a try, at last i think so.

          You can try refer something from him, how he write his sales title and description, what attracts you also attracts "your own buyer mind".
          When competition raise, your content must be special and promote something special to catch their buyer mind to earn that decent amount.

          Yeah, keep trying.
          Thanks for your comment!
          I have readed his WSO, i have to say i am not impressed, it's crap .I know that people are buying traffic, but i am not sure how much effective is that.
          Well, i have to try something, i will try to make 2 or 3 web sites, with good design, good articles ( maybe i will buy first few articles from pro writters ) and i will purchase some AIO seo tool ( probably SenukeX ) and try promoting web sites on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Yahoo Answers.I already have good backlinks and i can get as much as i need them every day so that should be good.I hope i will see at last 50 USD per day on each web site for at last one month.

          Thanks for your support guys, if any of you have any good advice let me know

    This method is actually pretty good. I do this exact method using my Filipino workers. I have a Flippa auction up now so you can see how it does tomorrow. Haha.

    i think this method is not good because first you will buy a domain and work on it and than sell it for some 100 -250 USD
    you should work on it for longer and you will surely start earning more than that per month
    i think my idea is the better one

    Dario,
    I am far from an expert with flipping sites but from my reading your plan sounds good. I have also seen that Adsense, when done properly, will help monetize a site that can than be sold for 10 to 20 times the montly Adsense incom.
    At adsenseflippers.com they have lots of free info on this type of business. I also see that Bidnessboi on this thread also has some info about flipping sites at auction. I plan to check that info out myself.

    Hmmm...

    This sounds like the start of an interesting plan, honestly. We do something similar...except we're using new domains and not those with backlinks/history that are found at auction. I like the twist, though.

    If you focus on established domains that already have links, you might want to consider building out authority sites on those domains. As you build them up, get traffic/earnings, and flip them, you can start leveling up to more expensive, high-level domains. You'll pick up some losers, though...you'll have to start with a budget if you plan to take this anywhere.

    I like the idea of going after quality and not quantity here. We've had some authority site failures and aren't the best people to go to for info on higher-level sites, but take a look at Pat Flynn's authority niche site. Those are the types of sites that could really do well with this strategy, I think.

    This is an excellent idea.

    That you are a web designer is the most important part. You do not even have to have a lot of traffic for this to work. Actually there are many sites on Flippa that have zero traffic and many sellers make way more than $500 per month selling sites without traffic.

    As long as a web site looks beautiful people will buy it.
