    VIDEO PROOF IS 3 POSTS DOWN FOR YOU NEGATIVE NANCY'S & NAYSAYERS

    EDIT: I had to post a SECOND video as proof, as apparently there are some that simply don't believe it's possible that I wanted to give credit to the two that helped me make that 12k or simply don't believe it's possible to sell a site for that much. I'm not sure. Either way, you can view the second proof video on this same thread near the bottom or simply click this link: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/1976024-post23.html

    I put this in "site flipping" but thought that it would go rather well in the lounge. Two reasons:
    1: Because I'm damn happy about making twelve grand by selling a website 2: For some reason, when I posted it in "site flipping" it doesn't show up on the main page of BHW and the two members that helped me make that 12k deserve a VERY public thank you.

    I catch a lot of flack from my fiance about how much time I spend here on BHW. I get a lot of "You could be doing something a lot more productive than sitting there talking to a bunch of people on the internet!" & as a full time IM'er sometimes she is actually right. However, it's stories like this that I get to take back to her and rub in her face (you know, in a loving kind of way).


    You see, by networking here on BHW and taking time to make sure others knew that I'm a stand up guy by being a productive member, I was able to get to talking to two incredible members of BHW. Those members are Thomas (meathead1234) & Bryan (bryanon), the same guys that run the site: http://killerflippingsecrets.com and that have a site flipping product for sale in the BST section of BHW here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/buy-sell-trade/220962-mod-exec-vip-reviews-inside-kfs-blackhat-version-finally-out-jr-vip.html


    I know that they are not only great people to have as friends, but also (and in this case almost more importantly), great business people. I know this because of a deal we just finished up not too long ago. That deal was having them sell a website of mine. I'll start the story by giving you the ending:


    I just cashed a check from Escrow.com for $12,000.00 USD. That is the amount they sold my website for!


    Now, I had heard that these guys knew their stuff when it came to selling websites. The products they sell are all about how to sell websites. However, there are a lot of people that say they can do things and then there are those that can actually do it. Well ladies and gents, these guys can not only do it, but they take it to a whole different level. Keep in mind, I didn't use their products, they brokered the sale of my site. That means I was completely "hands off" during the entire process. The thing is, if these guys can take my site and come back with twelve grand, imagine what information they are selling in their products!​


    They made it incredibly simple to get the ball rolling. I hopped onto Skype and had a conversation with the two of them. I went over my site, it's earnings, it's traffic sources, traffic volume & provided them proof of all of the above. They then gave me their "appraisal" as to the value of the site, how long it would take them to sell it & what to expect during the process. Then we made an agreement that they had exclusivity to sell the site for 30 days. That's everything in a nutshell. Using Flippa.com was out of the question, as my site wasn't able to be listed on Flippa due to their ToS. These two had to use more creative methods to sell my site...and they did it!​


    What's even more incredible is this. My site wasn't garbage. It had great earnings, great traffic volume, etc, etc, but it was still a very tough sell due to the nature of the site and how it made it's earnings. It isn't illegal or anything, it is just a site that certainly had to take some serious knowledge of getting a website sold to actually get it sold and at the right price.​


    If you're looking to have the sale of your website brokered by two MORE than capable individuals, I seriously suggest you talk to these two. In fact, I don't suggest it, I'm telling you to. You're going to lose money if you don't. If you're looking to learn about how to "flip" websites so you can sell them yourself, I again am telling you to at least look at their products. I don't have them so I can't review them personally, but I can tell you this:​


    Based on the fact that they took my website that COULDN'T be sold on Flippa (which is what they specialize in) and STILL not only sold my site but for twelve thousand dollars to boot, I can only imagine the information that is contained in them.​


    I wrote this up because those two deserved a public thank you for not only doing an incredible job, but doing it professionally, holding themselves to their agreement & just generally raising the bar to a level that everybody doing business should try to reach.​


    Thanks again guys! You rule!​

    I assure you, the day that you sell a website for $12,000.00 with the help of people you met on a forum, you'll want to issue them a public thank you as well.

    Also, for those of you who think I'm lying, I went ahead and made a video of my escrow.com account showing the completed transaction (best viewed at YouTube in full screen HD so you can see everything clearly):

    I saw the thread with their promotion before and must say. I'm trying to raise the money to buy the e-book and to get the startup money. A massive well done crazyflx.

    Thanks for the shout out Crazyflx. Was certainly a tough one to shift due to the recent clamp downs in the niche.

    @ all - can't disclose the site due to a NDA with the buyer I'm afraid.

    Watched the YT video, looks real. Guess it could be done with some editing, but not sure I'd see the point. Congrats on the sale, I've done some flipping, but none with that price tag, I'll have to check out the ebook.

    Congrats to the op...

    I have to ask though, you mentioned the site was making money in your post, as you mentioned providing stats to the 2 guys, im a bit confused about this part though, cos if the site was crap and wasn't making too much money, then unless it had massive potential, i find it difficult to believe it would sell for 12k...

    On the other foot though, if the site WAS making money, say $500-$1000 per month, then i certainly wouldnt sell it as i know i could A) Make that in 1 year, and B) Build upon the success already being achieved...

    Maybe its just me being paranoid, and if so, congrats again op!!
