Looking for ways to make money online? Business Owl has come up with 101 ways to do exactly that! Number six on the list – website flipping.

What is Website Flipping?

Website flipping is one up from domain flipping – developing a website from scratch and re-selling it or buying an existing website, improving upon it and then selling it on for a profit; much like buying a dilapidated house, renovating it and then selling it to the highest bidder.

How Does Website Flipping Make Money?

Developing a successful website is hard work. It also takes time. There are people out there who have neither the time nor the inclination to build a website, but who need one – either for their business or as an income-generating acquisition. They’re prepared to spend good money on buying a website which is already fully functioning, fully search engine optimised and attracting good traffic – that’s where you, the website flipper, come in.

How Do I Website Flip?

  • Based on keyword research, register or acquire a domain name which includes popular keywords, or keywords which may become popular in the future
  • Alternatively, buy an under-performing or poorly designed website in which you see potential
  • Give the site a complete revamp – add quality content, work on search engine optimisation, implement monetization strategies, and so on
  • Make sure that the domain name, any trademarks, incorporation and hosting information is all in your name
  • Sell it!
