    I am an expert of autoblogging. I can produce 3-5 premium designed autoblog per day. I am thinking of flipping fresh made autoblogs at Flippa. I tried to analyze the market of fresh autoblogs at flippa and could not come to an decision(There is no specific trend there :( ) So mates, I have a few questions as you guys are already an expert of Flipping:-

    1. What sells better, package of autoblogs or single autoblog?
    2. What should be the price of an highly adsense targeted low competitive niche autoblog(7-10 days old with $0 revenue)? share your opinion please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    The market for autoblogs on Flippa is extremely saturated at the moment. The average price has almost dropped below $100, which after fees is barely worth the time and effort.

    1) You'll get more per site if you sell them individually, but a bundle can be a good way to save on fees etc.

    2) Start them at $1 with a BIN of $197.

    My advice would be work on a very solid series of upsells. Generally buyers of turnkey sites are new to the business and as such might not have hosting (use an affiliate or setup a reseller), Aweber etc and you could even upsell them other services (SEO, article writing, design work etc). On the front-end you may only make $50 profit per customer, but if you can add another $100 on the back then it can be quite profitable.

    Good luck!

    If Flippa is bombarded already, why not aim for offline sales. Get noobs interested and throw a 'Running a Profitable Website for Dummies' eBook at them? And, as Mr Meathead said, upsell like mad!

    Enough interest would mean you could claim exclusivity (ie. you're in a queue, wait your turn), and that means you can ramp up the prices.

    My $0.02.

    How on earth can cold calling and emailing be saturated? There are billions of people and businesses in the world with email addresses and phone numbers.

    Just because other people do it, doesn't make it unprofitable to enter the market.
