    Why Not learn whole doing....

    Visit Flippa: Buy and Sell Websites and Domain Names

    There are TWO important TABS to check:

    1.JUST SOLD

    2.Ended Unsold

    You see both worlds.... This way you can learn more than an ebook can teach you.

    Then you need only one thing... Skill of creating websites, or getting someone to create websites for you... Or you can buy websites and the Flip....

    May this help this is how most of the top Flippers get started!

      Not getting ripped off:

      1) Do your due dilligence. Do a search for the domain name. If you are buying on flippa, do a search for domainname.com flippa and then domainname.com digitalpoint and then simply domainname.com.

      2) See the feedback from the seller. If from digitalpoint, check his actual posts and his join date. See if anything is fishy.

      3) If you don't feel comfortable in the least, simply don't buy. If you really want the site, try to negotiate a pay 50% get the site, pay 50% deal.

      4) If the seller has sold sites before, check out the profiles of those who has bought the seller's sites. If you want to go deep into seller analysis, you can contact those buyers directly. If they have anything bad to say about the seller, you can be sure they will get back to you.

      The biggest thing is to just make sure you trust the seller. Getting ripped off every once in a while happens if you buy a lot of sites. Just do what you can to make sure this doesn't happen often.

    The flipping part is easy. Use flippa.com. If you've ever sold anything on ebay, flippa will be familiar.

    The key to all this is to have sites that people actually want.

    If you look through flippa's just sold you will notice that sites that are earning income and it doesn't have to be much, attract the bet prices.


    I knew nothing about any of this stuff when I started and I ended up making and selling over 100 websites on flippa in six months.

    Anyway, here is the system I use to make sites to flip...hope it helps you to get started.

    By the way, this takes work. There is no easy, secret way to make good websites. Forget all the get rich fast, make money overnight on autopilot BS.

    This takes about half an hour of work a day to grow your sites from scratch and in about three to six months, the sites that take hold for you (not every site you make will work) should start to make some money.

    And that's the cool part......



    Start with keyword research.

    Market samurai is perfect for this, but you can use the free keyword tools that google offers online.
    Find a keyword phrase that has under 50,000.
    Find 3 related keywords that you will use as categories and tags.

    Register and host the domain.

    Godaddy are great for domain registration and hostgator are fantastic for website hosting. There are other provides, but I've had the best results with these two. Just make sure you have a host that uses cpanel.

    Install a wordpress blog.

    You can't go past wordpress direct. Installation of full SEO blog, setup correctly, takes around five minutes. When you are setting up a new site, don't waste time trying to pretty it up. If you have a look at flippa's just sold section, especially sites that sell for over $1,500 notice how most of them are just simple looking sites. There's a reason for this and that is, they work!

    Just choose a simple and clean template inside wpdirect, it's all you need.

    Setup and adsense account with google and enter the code in wpdirect. This is all you need to test your new site and you'd be surprised at how well adsense works at making money.

    Now, read this twice! DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER ADVERTISING OF ANY KIND TO YOUR SITE AT ALL!

    Read the above sentence again.

    I know you see it in start up sites all the time, where every square inch of real estate is filled with some sort of offer. This just leads to distraction and in the end, your visitors end up clicking on nothing and leave. You don't want a site full of bells and whistles. Have a look at sites you like to visit and take note of the layout.

    Just leave it at adsense for now. As the site grows and you are happy that it's working, you can replace it with an affiliate offer if you want.

    Once your site is up and running, you will want some content.

    Now to start with, you will be testing your new site to see if it will actually work in your market, so you don't want to invest too much time or money in the testing phase.

    Inside wordpress direct, you can set up the site to automatically grab youtube videos for all of your keywords. Set it to post once a day, that' all you need.

    Now, for each video that is posted, write a brief description of around 100 words and include your main keyword and every so often, one of your other keywords. This is your unique content.

    Now that your site is up and running, you need google and the other search engines to know you exist and tell the world to come and visit you.

    You can do this with social bookmarking.

    Take your first three to six posts and add them to social bookmarking sites, including: digg, mixx, delicious and stumbleupon. These will be enough for the search engines to find you and index your site.

    The final stage is to build some backlinks to your site.

    Quality backlinks will move your site up the rankings and onto the first page of google, where all the fun happens.

    The best way to do this is by posting comments on other blogs and forums that are related to your own niche. The key here is to actually contribute to the conversation and not just bombard people with spam just to get a few backlinks. It won't work.

    The temptation when starting a new blog is to build things as quickly as possible. It just doesn't work like that. Slow and steady is the key. Google finds it suspicious when a site, particularly a new one, all of a sudden receives hundreds of links. It can land your site in a mess of trouble.

    I have used the above method over a hundred times now, to setup and test new sites and if you follow the steps, within a few weeks you will see results and know if you have a site that could work.

    Of course you can spend a ton of cash and try and make things happen, but most of the time you will be wasting your money.

    All up this costs around $15 to set up each time and you usually see results in a week or so.


    Anyone that can use a computer and search in google can do this. I'm a drummer and worked it out, so it should be easy for you.


    If you want to see how I setup a blog in wordpress direct, I have video on my blog showing how I use it.

      I've never flipped a website, but from my understanding... depending on the sale amount, isnt escrow usually required?

    You don't need to pay a monthly membership fee to learn to flip websites. There are a lot of good and cheap ebooks available. Once you build a site and flip it the first time, why would you need to pay a membership fee?
