    Hi guys, today am going to briefly share the little but no secret to attracting more bidders to your site on flippa.

    Many newbie bit around the bush and come up with beautiful site to sell but end up been disappointed..

    My little tips will shed more light to selling on flippa.

    1. First and most important you have got to ensure your site is making money if you want to dispose it for an outrageous amount of money. Even if your site has lots of traffic, listing it before monetizing that traffic won't be a good idea.

    2. Having Google analytic will make it easier for buyers to verify your income claim, sites with good record of 6months stable traffic sells more.

    3. Since the last time i used flippa, members have trusting rate. Work on your trusting rate and aim towards been a good seller with reputation.

    4. Setting your auction time to 7days seems to work well because most people will have the sense of urgency. Anything longer can make your bidders lose interest, most people do things when they are in the spirit, take advantage of that.

    5. Set a low bid and your offer will be displayed in bright green colors which tends to be a big motivators for buyers.

    6. Also having a Buy it Now option get serious buyers who are not ready for the bidding war to quickly acquire your site. Unfortunately, a lot of people seems to have an unrealistic price of their site which drives their buyers away.

    7. Don't over hype your offer.

    8. Respond to comment and on time too.

    9. You can invite qualified buyers to your bid....

    Cheers.

    I think flippa is totally saturated. I notice some seller is creating huge profit on selling simple site for example: Instant Website For Sell. This guy listing same site again and again and its get sold. But again he listed same site.

    Excellent advise. Thinking of getting into the Flippa game myself sometime soon here. 6 moths of solid provable earnings seems like a solid foundation to market your site. The flipping game seems just like SEO in that it takes patience and dedication to persevere. Cheers.
