    Well To cut a long story short, I made a website in the cooking niche, made 50 pages of unique content, adding products to my site and got many back links to my site over 8 months. I made over £1,000 in that time, lots of orders over Christmas and around 15,000 unique per month. I then emailed 5 big company's in the UK that were selling the same product as mine but was not ranking in the top 3 pages. I got a reply from one of the company's, sent them stats of the site and sold for £7,000.

    Total cost of the site and back links was under £600, so made £7,400. Thats around $11,000 off of one site.

    The site I sold to was Clifford James.

    This was just off of one site, can you think if I could do this 5 times a year plus I have a day job.

    Would be much more income, so I'm posting this to show you this can be done, and anyone can make big money from site flipping.

    Have a good weekend guys and girls.

    Nice, replicate and keep it up.

    Did you write those 50 pages of content on your own? Haha that would be brutal for me.

    Hi,
    I'm trying to sell the site for $80 000 at flippa (SaaS service). Maybe you can help me to sell it? I'll can give you % from the sale.

    PM me if you are interested.

    I'm surprised you managed to (seemingly easily) sell direct to a company like that. Usually the red tape in larger companies would just hold the deal up forever and not make it worthwhile for $11k.

    Congrats on the sale, but I think you might find it difficult to replicate this model on a regular basis if you're selling direct to companies. I might be wrong but that's just my experience from spending many a late night in negotiation with buyers from companies who have multiple levels of hierarchy to get something signed off.

    Excellent! Been thinking about flipping
    those sites that I no longer have interest.

    But still, site flipping is still to come on
    my list of things to do.

    If you are serious about selling your site and it is legitimate, I suggest contacting Meathead1234 and his team at Flipping Enterprises. Top notch guys over there and they will get your site sold. Good luck buddy!

    I love it when people think outside the box.
    You didnt try to sell it on Flippa and you went directly to the clients..
    Good job man:)

    Everytime when i think of flipping a site i think of flippa



    I guess i should look more into direct selling
