    Hi. Im fairly new, and looking into buying a few sites on Flippa.

    I cant help but notice all these sites selling Facebook Likes, Instagram Followers.

    They say they "advertise" for like 100$ a month, and it might give them orders. But whenever i ask "where?" they cant tell me.

    That makes me in doubt, i mean, they cant advertise on google, google doesnt allow "Buy Facebook Likes" keywords, so how are they doing the advertisements? Is it scam or legit?

    If you are new to IM, I think that Flippa is one of the last places to spend any of your money... there is a lot of smoke and mirrors offered there that could end up costing you as opposed to giving you a return on your dollar.

    Spend a little (actually a lot) of time reading on this site to learn a bunch before spending a little (or a lot) of your money and pick up some real world knowledge.

    Suggestion Instead of Investing in Flippa. You can Build a Service Site, Outsource Work. But Main Point you Should Know How to Do is "How to Market YOUR Site Locally for Clients" Otherwise, If you not able to get Clients It is Worthless to get Service Site.
    Also, if you Newbie, Why you Investing in Flippa? You can start with Small like Fiverr, Like Own Adsense/Amazon Site or CPA Site. etc

    If you are interested in going into this buying followers, tweets... type of sites, then buy them from someone with long sales record (by that I mean site that already had more then few sales). This sellers will be more likely to tell you where they advertise. I have a friend that makes about 5000$/m with site like that and he advertise mainly on FB (with precise targeting this is totally doable). You can also do some "forum marketing" in beginning. And don't forget to re-market your old customers, they are very likely to buy from you again (except if your service sucks).

    BTW, you can make site like this yourself in couple of hours using wp and any digital product cart (or just paypal).

    I am fairly new to IM. But i've been developing websites for years, just never turned any into money machines, or flipped.

    That's why im looking to buy some, but i guess some are to good to be true.

    How is anyone able to advertise it on Facebook, if its not legal? And who do they target?

    You can easily get scamed on flippa and that is why I stay away from it. Plenty people are just artificial about the websites and when you buy them it will hurt because the site is not what the lister told you it was.

    You should target people that are into seo, website owners or webmasters. You can join groups relative to this topics and target them.

    Flippa is a danger to anybody new, I would just remember the adage, "they're selling it for a reason". Most of the time sellers will cheat you, they'll pull their offer at the last second if they don't think it's enough money. They will often also lie about amount of clients, Alexa ranking, paypal amount, and everything else just to make you buy their website.

    All of the stuff that's like, "makes 2 grand a month, growing, niche market, turnkey website, mostly automated, etc., etc." If all of that were true there would be no reason for them to sell it, they would keep the money, clients, and everything else. So just be careful, it's very buyer beware, never ever buy a starter website though, those are garbage.

    Also a personal note, don't buy a website that gets most of it's revenue from Google adsense, that's very risky, because google loves to ban accounts arbitrarily, the majority of income should come from services or products.

    The OP is asking whether selling of Facebook likes is legit or not,Actually there is no regulation anywhere ,but buying of such services does not do any good to your website

    About the Facebook likes - 95%+ are likes genereted through fake accounts, or people not realizing they are liking your page. You don't want any of these in your facebook page.

    This guy is totally right as I do this as well. Never made no where near $5,000/m but these strategies on forum marketing works. I never knew you can do social media service promoting on fb or any other social media site. Learn something new every day.
