    Hey Guys,

    I read these BHW forums a ton, and I'm finally ready to set out on my own venture....

    I'm thinking about buying a site from Flippa. The one I'm looking at is super cheap, with hardly any effort I think I will make some serious money with methods explained here at BHW...

    But, I've never done it before... Does anyone have some great tips to get me started? Is this a good path to go down? What would you start with?

    Thanks for your input!

    Different methods require different sites.

    What are the methods you're currently looking at?

    If it is really cheap and you can afford to lose that money. DO IT! Taking action is what this site is all about man. You most likely will fail, but the experience you will gain from that will be invaluable. Best of luck OP!!

    Thanks everyone.. Its only $50 right now with one bid. I think ill wait for the bid to almost expire then grab it for under $100... It claims to already have made over $2000 in the last few months - and doing my research its lagit. SO if I can use methods from here like mass blog posting apps, tweet apps, etc.. ill be rich in thoery.. :)

    The site made $2000 and they only want $100 something sounds fishy

    Nobody is going to sell this for $100. Its a scam, trust me...I have bought a couple of such sites. Sucked me in. Flippa and paypal don't want to know. They use false stats or someone else's, or stats for something different. PM me with the link and I can check it out for you, but you have really got to ask yourself why would you sell something that makes you $2000 in a few months for peanuts...Its a scam for sure...... Just start your own site

    Well... The site has a reserved limit.. but siense there is no revenue for november.. I think it will be cheap because the guy seems to not evennlike the market or he lost interest I cant see it going over a few hundred...

    Nope, It didn't let me :(

    I'll just post here how to get to it, I hardly think anyone here will try and bid on it.

    Go to flippa, and click on the first tab "Featured" then on the top of the page there's a search... just search for 5lines and there's only one result, and that's the page.

    Let me know, I don't want to be scammed, but I can see that this could make a ton of cash....

    Thanks for taking a look... I am glad that it doesn't seem like a scam..

    It should give me time to prepare tools, marketing materials, and ideas that you guys have to really launch this to be a success.. I have some cash saved up to make it happen.. I don't mind as long as it doesn't cost me more than a grand.

    Update:

    That site on Flippa only has one bid, so I'm excited if I can get it under $1,000. In preparation, i went and bought the Flippanomics eBook(By Thomas Smale (meathead1234) and Bryan O'Neil (bryanon)), and going through the whole guide..

    I would like to be in the top 5 on that Flippa leather board... I think it's quite possible with my experience in development to build valuable websites, and gain experience in SEO.

    Even if I don't get this website, I believe I could build one just like it, if not better, and sell it on Flippa.

    Resources here at BHW are rich, and I think anyone can do what I'm about to do.

    Wish me Luck, and you'll be getting a lot of questions from me! haha

    Do you know if the reserve is 100?

    There's a reserve and 25 days to go.

    Try to pm the owner and ask him the reserve, he may tell you.

    Auctions always go high in the last day/hours

    It s normal that there s only 1 bid at the moment.

    Good luck with it!
