Be honest with me. Is it possible to flip with no programming experience?

    I've always been interested in flipping but I have no programming experience, I can't make websites.

    I also do not have the money to pay someone to create them for me, as I know many of you do.

    Is there any angle I could work from, or is having no programming experience a no-no in this area of internet marketing?

    I agree with poweronics, you need to gain some experience before you start to flip websites.

    Programming experience is not required. Making websites is actually very easy, stick to simple things like using Wordpress or another CMS, then you get free themes, free plugins and all you really have to do is create content and promote a website.

    That is the angle i would take, you obviously need to know how to put a website like this together (lots of free sources online, free ebooks in the download section here etc) so as long as your grasp of English is reasonably good then you can very easily make money flipping websites.

    this is the only good answer in this thread. don't know what the others are talking about.

    i agree 100% with everything carlx said. just get your head around wordpress, learn it a little, and you're ready to go. shouldn't even take you long. a few days at the most.

    however, if you want to make more money and flip sites that are making money, you'll obviously need to learn some SEO and all of that.

    do you know anything about it? what other skills do you have, if any?

    it is an advantage to know how to make sites, and know a language of some sort, but it isn't totally needed. i do recommend it, but it isn't 100% necessary.
