Any tips/tricks for selling sites on Flippa?

8 replies
Hello Warriors,

I need your help, again!

I have a couple of websites that I never got around to SEO'ing but get some nice organic traffic. I was figuring I could just sell them, and I know Flippa is the place to do it.

Only problem is, I am not too familiar with the site. I've also gathered from some people that it isn't necessarily the easiest thing in the world to sell relatively entry-level sites on there. Are bids hard to get?

Does anyone have any tips or tricks that can help me to sell these couple sites I have?

      I have sold two sites on flippa - one was a real estate site which was monetized, but had pretty low traffic - I sold it, for around $200. I think it had 4 bids on it.

      The other one was a drop shipping site that sold for more than what I was asking, in the mid $x,xxx - so I was happy.

      So, I think sites will get bids on flippa (and sell) it's just a matter of what you want to price it at and sometimes the lowest price you'll accept.

      Hope that helps!

    $1 starting bid, no reserve. The 'most active' search is a popular one with buyers-
    so a lot of small bids will get more people to the auction. Don't buy the listing upgrades (waste of money in my opinion)- except for the pricey front page upgrade.

    And screen shots, lots and lots of screen shots.

    And make sure to show proof of your traffic and adsense earnings (if you have adsense).

      yeah you really need to put Google analytics. offer escrow as an option. Also the copy really does make a difference. Try to sound like a business owner, not a 14 year old... It will sell for more if you have at least a minimum of monetization in place(even adsense will do the trick, but it has to have a proven track record)
