    Most of his tactics revolve around getting the most bids, to be in the most active section of flippa. Unfortunately, due to shill bidding, the visibility of this section has decreased unless you get 50+bids, which for non-shilled sites that wont happen.

    I would hardly call any of the 10 pointers "secrets", especially seeing as the vast majority of it is nearly word to word what I covered in Killer Flipping Secrets when meathead1234 and I released it nearly 3 years ago (and a few of these now widely known strategies were initially coined by KFS), but useful tips regardless.

    Most of it can really be summed up by: concentrate on facts first and your sales pitch second, and be transparent throughout the process.

    I definitely wouldn't say that it covers everything.

    It was released 3 years ago, mind you. A lot of things have changed since then.

    What it does cover, though, is the "common sense" bits. These do not age.

    I'm also not aware whether KFS is still what it was when I first wrote it (we sold it ages ago) so won't be able to comment on any updated content.

    Tip 4 is one of the worst things about Flippa (outside of scams) So many dreamers want top $$$ just on what they see as it's "potential". But when it's got no traffic of revenues, it's just another website. Unless it's some true revolutionary site. Then it won't get no where near what sellers are dreaming of. Just do a search now for the highest selling sites to see what I mean.

    Flippa's blog is largely self promotion, affiliate promotion and site updates. The "sign up for twitter as we're giving away $100 in credits every Monday in March" promotion, posted by Ophelie on March 20 (after 3 of the 4 Mondays in March had already passed) speaks volumes about preparation and planning phases active on Flippa.

    A couple weeks ago they introduced a new update to their website that completely broke their checkout. It took half of dozen emails to them, several posts on FB and most of a day before they realized nobody could pay for a listing. They typically introduce updates just before leaving the office so if anything breaks it's a full day before they realize it. I don't think there is an "Adult" in the place that knows how to run a business. Everything is implemented half ass and without a lot of forethought.
