How To Flip A Website For Profit

Feb 6, 2008
With the popularity of flipping houses, it's natural that there would be a virtual version of this. It is called flipping websites. In this case the easiest form of this is to create a five page website with unique content and then resell it.

Writing five pages of articles is not as daunting as it sounds. Each page can be between two hundred fifty to five hundred words in length. You can for instance create a website around the topic of Vacationing in Miami. One page can talk about restaurants in the Miami area and compare a few. The second page can discuss fun day trips including the zoo, lion safari, swimming with dolphins and where to rent a boat. The third page can be an article about places to shop in Miami and where to find discounts. The fourth page could explore various hotels in the area and rate them. Finally the fifth page can be fun page talking about celebrities with a home in Miami.

If you know nothing about web design, you might feel intimidated about the prospect of how to convert this information into a website. Fortunately today there are easy applications that are push button and you do not have to know html or coding to do this. They even come with pretty pictures to put at the top of each page you can add just by clicking and pointing. The previous impediment to create websites by having to know coding, programming and related skills is now overcome.

What do you do after you have your website finished? You have the choice of marketing it as-is to a new owner. The advantage of this is you can get cash right away. The disadvantage of this is that you'll have no traffic yet from search engines or any proof to show the new owner of it's popularity. It can be more lucrative instead to let it sit for a month while you help it grow it's visitors. How do you do that? There are several ways but I will just put in some free marketing tips below.

You can write a few articles that get passed around the net on topics such as fun things to do in South Florida or where to find cheap hotels that you distribute . It is good to write new information than what you have posted on your website. Another way to get traffic to your site is to look for other related sites and exchange links. In this case you can find other sites about Miami or forums where people discuss traveling. Once your site gets in the major search engines it can bring in a higher price .

However if you are more interested in quick cash rather than waiting for the site to grow in price, you can sell it as soon as it's created as many people enjoy the marketing part and have skills to develop back links to the new site .

You can sell it on buy sell sections of forums, auction websites or ask a newsletter owner to mention it in his newsletter and you'll split the amount. After writing a little bit you may be able to make one to two sites a day which can be a very nice flip cash business. The beauty of this is there is no customer support and you just create and resell sites.

By writing original articles or buying private label rights articles (plr) that you modify, you can create a site that will have value and a future owner will appreciate as a time saver. There are many places to find pre-written articles sold to a small amount of people that can then be re-written easily and be your uniquely. You can also experiment and keep a site or two you make to see how it does in terms of revenue after you add links to affiliate products you can earn a commission on.
