    I am, although I don't actually do it full time yet. I prefer the long term approach. I usually work on a couple of sites in my spare time for a few months and then sell them.

    I'm interested in learning more about it. Never really got into it though. This section was made due to a request of another member. So I'm really grateful things went trhgouh.

    I haven't been flipping sites as a money making method but rather for getting at least some money back on some old domains that have made their work for me and no longer was needed. One can make some money but for sure a lot more if adding any products (templates, ebooks, services etc) or just an autoblog and also if doing some minor SEO to get them up in the SERPs for some long tail keywords.

    It shouldn't be hard to make some money from flipping but I am not sure it will out rank other money making methods when it comes to making money?? But can most likely get good extra contribution to ones monthly incomes from this.

    I wouldn't put down too much work on this but maybe worth making one to two simplier sites per months for flipping if not else to see how it works and if one see that this can turn into someting worth making to ones main business, outsource it to someone who can make info products for ones flipping sites and increase the amount of sites per month.

    Flipping is the excuse to do SEO and to build links. If the site is profitable, keeo it, dont sell it

    I flip websites as for a living. I average around 12k a month in sales using several different channels of sales. Flippa is great, on the other hand, I roll with established sites, spurce them up and resell. I own several sites with at least 10k visitors a month, all of which I had purchased and resold.

    Personally, flipping websites is not easy, and if you are good, expect to make some damn good money. However, expect to get screwed several times, and always use escrow for your transactions. Make sure you understand the basics of selling, and what attracts the buyer, and what doesn't... Good luck to all!

    I have a site and I was wondering what is the best way to set it up to get it ready for flipping?
