    Do any of you guys have any experience with these outsourced business websites on flippa? Im not talking about those over saturated SEO sites, i mean a site that provides a unique service. Generally are these types of sites good investments(If I have a little bit of time every day to manage the site)? I don't hear anything about them here on BHW, but they are all over flippa.

    Ha well i was looking at a couple on flippa, and I don't think i should say exactly what they are( am i allowed to?). Essentially, its not like those "fully outsourced" SEO reselling sites. From my understanding, I would receive the order from a client, send the details provided by the client to various outsourced employers, then send the finished product back to the client. Im sorry for being so vague, I just don't want to reveal the actual service to bring unwanted attention to the person auctioning, as I got in quite a bit of trouble in the past for doing that.

    That's outsource arbitrage or you might call it reselling or white label as well. There are quite a few of them here as well in joint venture and BST section.

    Generally they never advertise how they are getting clients. Most of these "resellers" are posting on forum threads here and there, trying to get a client or two. After making some money, or catching a large fish, they milk as much money as possible out of the client and sell the site to someone else... through Flippa of course! :)

    Of course, not everybody does that. If you are really serious about this business, don't look at Flippa. Just my thoughts!

    Actually you need to run adwords or similar advertisement campaigns to get more orders even you purchase those business for 2k or 3k, so it's totally waste of money. Hire some freelancer and build your own site for 50-100$ and find some linkbuilding service providers who are offering re-seller price.

    I'm kinda new to Flippa, but I've got the following impression from looking at listings such as this one: https://flippa.com/2884690-hot-seo-backlinks-reseller-biz-fully-outsourced-full-profits-low-reserve so please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm thinking these sites are mass produced with the same template (obvious) and basically sold as turnkey reseller businesses on Flippa.

    So if the buyer of these turnkey sites is ever able to build a clientele and get some orders in, the work is outsourced to "suppliers" that are provided to the Flippa buyer when he bought the site, but I'm thinking these suppliers are the same people as the seller of the website, and this is just an indirect way they are trying to both sell the turnkey site and get people to sell THEIR services through the site.

    am I on the right track here?

    What kind of unique services are you talking about? I know there are allot of "Facebook fan service, Youtube view service, etc" type of web sites floating all around Flippa.

    Yea i have seen countless SEO sites on flippa, but im talking about things like artistic portraits, professional video creation, etc...

    Even if they show snapshots of their earnings, i guess you are right, I have no way of knowing where They got the clients, and if they are real.
