  1. I know Flippa and I always check for new opportunities…I've also bought some interesting ebook regarding Flippa sales.
    I know also other marketplaces but since I look for low-mid value websites, Flippa is still my number 1 resource

  2. I've known about Flippa for a while but I never had a site a wanted to sell and if I did I wouldn't know how to properly go about it. Thanks for the great step by step infographic on how to get started with Flippa. Developing the trust rating of your site using social media sites is a great idea. I have a few sites bringing in some consistent revenue so I might test the waters with Flippa and see how it goes. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Nice Post, Website flipping is another way of earning nice income. You just have to make sure that it gets a lot of traffic and making decent revenues as well. But I can’t imagine myself selling a successful website, maybe I’ll keep it and build another website to create several income streams. I’ll probably sell a website if I have like 10 websites and i can’t manage the other websites anymore.
    Anyway, Excellent post.

    Thanks,
