    I know that there is practically every which way to make money with an autoblog here on this site and I enjoy just sitting back and reading and learning here. Not to worry I will be supporting more and more here soon.

    I wanted to let everyone know what a friend of mine has been doing for awhile that is definitely not a secret. She buys .info domains, uses gatorhosting to create autoblogs with amazon, adsense, ebay, and clickbank. Then spends two months on them just getting them great stats. Then she resells them on eBay for 99 cents with the criteria that the buyer must use her hosting for the site. She has stated she "only makes" $500 a month extra with this but I believe she makes more and does not want me to take her idea. She states it is so much hard work, but we all know she does it in about 15 minutes with the installs running all of her prepacked plugins and so on.

    Yes, i heard about this. HG is paying really well for new customers.

    You can also do this on other sites.

    that's a nice way to make a side profit from autoblogs. but i dont understand how she sells them with 99 cents if the autoblog has a great stats. and make 500$/month. that means she sells 500 autoblogs/month?

    No. She is selling the autoblog for 99 cents, but she leads the customer to hostgator with her affiliate links. And she get big money from HG :)

    Wouldn't it make more sense to buy reseller hosting and lock them into a year contract at $10/month - you've made more than the hostgator affiliate program and could have a reccuring client for a really long time?

    I used to do something like this back in the day. I would buy "clone" scripts for a couple dollars that were poorly designed (from a cosmetic standpoint, not technical) on ebay of what was selling well at the time (auction sites, gaming sites, etc) and then I would redesign them so that they looked extremely professional and had a nice logo.

    I would start the bidding off at $.99 with no reserve and have a few friends place some bids on it (people see a few bids and they are more apt to bid themselves). I would sell these sites anywhere from a couple dollars to a couple hundred dollars and then lock them into a $9.99 per month hosting contract on my reseller hosting account.

    @Project-Shadow To your point, yes, it can be more lucrative to host them yourself on a reseller hosting account. However, some people don't want to support the hosting and would rather take $100 upfront from a commission than to wait for 10+ months and hope the user is still subscribed.
