Another blog sold at US$297 a few days ago…

Hi everyone,

I have decided to post this post because I have received many emails asking about my blog flipping coaching.

Below are some of the questions.

1. What is blog flipping?

Blog flipping is selling a blog for more. For example, you bought a domain for $10 and created a new blog. You can sell it for US$197 to US$397 depending on the bonuses you have, the type of blogs you have created and so on.

Alternatively, you can buy a blog for say, US$39 and after touching up, you can sell it for US$697 or even $1097.

What I meant by touching up could be:
1. Redesigning the blog or site
2. Increasing traffic
3. Increasing the revenue

2. How easy is blog flipping?

Blog flipping is, in my own opinion, the easiest way for a newbie to make money. Because anyone can create a new blog, add content and sell it.

If you have a blog right now with some content, you can sell or flip your blog.

So I can conclude blog flipping is the easiest way to make money online.

3. Where can you sell your blog?

There are many online auction marketplaces. The best marketplace I feel is Flippa.com and the interface is really easy for you.

If you can create a blog and insert content, I am sure you can do the listing so it will be listed in Flippa’s marketplace for sale.

It is very similar to ebay, another online marketplace.

4. What do you need to be able to sell your blog?

It is good to offer a higher price and add more value.

So how can you add value?

You can add bonuses such as:
1. ebooks
2. unique articles
3. private label rights articles
4. blogging guides
5. paid plugins with licenses
6. traffic generation service
7. consultation or coaching

5. What do you need to do after you have sold your blog?

You will need to transfer the blog url to their namecheap or godaddy account, depending on where you bought your domain.

And you can easily zip up the files from the domain using the file manager in the control panel and upload it again after you have transferred the domain.

Alright, if you want to go full time into blog flipping, these are the basic 5 things you need to know.

    Thanks for sharing this John. I always hear blog flipping but never had an idea about the potential of it. Will study this for few weeks and test my luck here.

    Sound interesting, but what is the potential if many people starts doing that and what are the technical skills required?

  4. Edward Han says

    I have built quite a number of blogs but never know about flipping them.

    You have made it sounds so simple but guess it won’t be that simple. Anyway, will look into this and see whether I can flip my blogs.

    @Adrian, potential is GREAT! the pie is really big for everyone to share…from 97usd blog to over US$250,000 for one site. for technical wise, u do need to set up your wordpress, install plugins and add content.

  6. John Yeo says

    Hi John

    I must say that you really break things up into simple bite size, knowledge that is easily digestible and practical.

    Will be giving blog flipping a shot, modelling closely to your advice given in your blog posts.

    Look forward to connecting with you. Have a good week ahead!

    Thanks JY…

    I do my best to simplify principles and content so that anyone, upon seeing it for the first time, can understand instantly. =)
