A Question For Flippa Buyers/Sellers

9 replies
Here's a question for you Flippa regulars :

Would you buy the following :

- An optimized domain name and associated keyword list.
- A squeeze page that leads to a static HTML landing page, with an attached Wordpress blog for off-page SEO.
- The landing page and squeeze page are completely graphically designed and on-page optimized for the researched keywords.

So, in my mind, the process would be the following :

1. You see an advertisement on Flippa that has the above details.
2. You think 'Ah, those keywords and statistics seem profitable, and look, I get the landing and squeeze pages already made and ready to go, I just need to do the offpage SEO/promotion etc'
3. You purchase the site for $200-$300 potentially.

What do you guys think? Can you see any problems with this idea? What would Flippa buyers need/want? Basically, this is what I am doing :

1. I research a highly searched, low-competition niche keyword list.
2. I purchase an optimized domain name, create a landing and squeeze page and wordpress blog.
3. I sell the package of the domain name, keyword list, landing page, squeeze page and blog.

Any suggestions? Critiques?

    Test it! and explain as much as you can as 50% of flippa buyers are newbies. If you paint a nice picture you can lure someone.

    Other than that most of the time people look for stuff that already works and makes money or generates traffic. I had problems selling stuff without long history even if the profits were there.

    In the end this may not be worth your effort but it's always worth testing, you never know, flippa is very unpredictable in my experience.

    The best bit of advice I could give you would be to "Build a Better Mouse Trap"

    That combination of assets has sold on Flippa before. I used to buy sales page/blog combos (with a product) for around $1,200 on Flippa. They went lot hotcakes for awhile. It was a trend ... one that died eventually from overuse.

    If you do it, be sure to design the landing, squeeze page and blog all the same for a nice branding effect. You don't have too much to lose by trying.

    I do see these working, but it would have to be in the sales letter.
    Whenever I buy from flippa, I never look at "potential" the site has to be earning.

    What I would suggest is setting up the site with the above specifications, do some SEO work, ad adsense and show it earns. If your keywords are that good you can make some serious coin and sell it for minimum 10X monthly revenue.

      That's really the key. The sites that sell fast and well on Flippa are sites traffic and revenue.

          I guess I'm going to keep hammering this question until someone finally answers, or until I wear my typing fingers down to the bony tips.

          Everyone knows that sites that have some revenue history and existence history can and do sell. What I want to know is, how are people selling (for at least $200) those sites that have NO revenue history and were just built three days earlier??

          No one seems able or willing to answer THAT question. I've even bought WSOs that claim to answer that question, in fact using it as the main lure, only to find that they dodge it in the end.

          What is the difference between brand-new, no-revenue sites that sell quickly for $200-300 and similar sites that fail to sell or sell for only $80-90? And don't say that the better-selling one has a better sales letter... I've looked, and that's not the case. Mysteriously, "some people" are just able to knock them out and sell them, three a week, with no problem---or so the claims go.

          Luck? I don't think so.

          The ones that are selling for $200-300 seem to have some unspoken factor that no one is revealing.

            Provide the links to the sites with NO revenue that sold QUICKLY for $300 and maybe we'll give you an answer.

    I agree with what others have mentioned the sales copy needs to be excellent and contain all the relevant details. Have a look at other successful sellers ads to get inspiration.
    Would be interested to see how you get on.
