    Let me know how it goes. I tried Freemarket.com but they only get 500 visitors a day to their website and I got zero bids and views. Flippa gets 60,000+ visitors a day. So a buy and sell website marketplace needs to get a lot of daily traffic in order for it to work.

    I definitely will for sure, I'm looking at some other options now in order to sell this site before October including some help.

    I also tried Freemarket.com and that's not working at all I wasted $30 bucks for a featured listing on there and there's barely any bids or views. Flippa needs traffic and active bids in order to truly work.

    The one I want to focus on is direct messaging buyers who actually buy sites regularly to flip them.

    UPDATE: I'm on my 3rd listing right now and it's not going anywhere so Flippa is looking more and more like it's not going to be an option for me.

    I think my only solution to get this site sold is to hire somebody to help sell it for me.

    I have a site now that has been listed on Flippa for over 6 months. About once a week I'll get someone interested but then they never make an official offer. I've had a few very low offers also. I only keep the listing up because it's at least a backlink to the site and I already paid.

    Yeah man, Flippa really isn't an option for us and I keep listing mines as well because I already paid to have it listed but nobody is serious about buying and it is a backlink to the site. I had some douchebags from Reddit visit in the past week but none of them are serious about helping but the traffic did go up.

    Maybe if your site has been up a year you can try Empire Flippers. Since my site is only 7 months old I'm still far away from that option which is why I need somebody to sell directly.

    I think if we find somebody to help us sell it directly we will finally get our sites sold, I'm willing to talk to you about this privately.

    How many visitors do you get per day?

    Sometimes 100-200 per day but conversions were high though since this is a store my guess is visitors are irrelevant.

    I saw online there are a few companies that offer flippa clone scripts. They are quite pricey but I am sure there are talented people in the black hat world that would be able to get the scripts. For instance take a look at this one
    http://fliponic.com/flippa-clone-script-domain-marketplace-script-website-marketplace-script-website-domain-auction-marketplace-script-website-domain-apps-broker-script-software/

    I only started looking for them because of the thousands of people who complain about flippa I see an opportunity to do better. However the problems I see is building an audience and membership of users (both buyers and sellers). It is easy to create a website and implement the technology but if you do not have a user base then the sellers will get the same results currently on flippa.

    Where flipper fails is trust and customer service. In my opinion these are easily rectified. So if the black hat community can get a hold of the script and build a reputation of trust and Superior customer service and most importantly grow a userbase then flippo would surely be out of business soon. Let's start building a JV team. Where there is dissatisfaction there is opportunity.

    Recently I just sold a site successfully on Flippa, so the answer is YES. Hope you can get a decent profit.

    Best regards, bro.

    Wait until February and sell it with Empire Flippers. It will be next to impossible to sell that website on Flippa.
