When people tell me they just don’t know how to make money online, Flippa is one of the sites I suggest they try to work with. This site vends readymade websites to buyers at auction prices. But the difference between Flippa and many auction areas of other domainer forums is that zero Alexa, zero traffic, zero anything plus content and code gets you in. These stat sets are ones that every domainer had tons of names for.
For $19, the domainer (or man on the street) can vend a website already up. This takes the profit model of the domain name world a bit further. Instead of relying on the domain resale market, autoblog engines can do the work and output the site. The money making potential of a speculative name buy just got that much more possible. The domainer creates their own multiples of opportunity.
The employable resources toward a website for domainers have always been a part of their hosting plan. Hosting companies like Godaddy offer a plethora of webmaster site publishing choices in the “Connection” area. Site templates, HTML code, and open source applications allow even newbie domainers full site design flexibility. Writing the content was all that was needed.
But today content writers in every language are an easily sourced commodity online. Getting original and keyword rich text up is as simple as writing a few emails and selecting a contractor. A little do-it-yourself juice poured directly onto the hot griddle of the hosting account can deliver some piping hot websites. And Flippa allows novices a turn at bat, as well.
For many domainers the market to sell domains feel closed to them. It takes a few successes to get their groove going as market entrepreneurs. What is not made clear to many business individuals looking to get into the domain name industry is that for some domain name sales happen instantly. For others it can take many years. The returns are varied, and there is no guarantee of profit.
Flippa.com changes all that. A quick survey of the site shows what auctions have sold. The other side of the Flippa.com coin is that now name owners can shop for sites that fit the keywords for site names they already have. Instead of chancing content they don’t want or need, webmasters can analyze available site text for purchase. If the Flippa vended website fits the bill, then they can bid their budget.
Flippa allows those with good domaining ideas and good ideas for domain names to follow through on those concepts and take profit from their brainstorms. The world is full of end user business leaders who will have the “vision” to buy the finished product. These are not the same people who will fund its growth or development however.
Flippa.com closes the gap between domain name website end user customer and domain reseller. And just think what kind of traffic your website will get while being “shopped” at Flippa.com. This is a chance for web designers, webmasters, writers and domain name entrepreneurs to showcase their packaged services. As many free markets, a sales history tells the tale.
Flippa.com will remind most domainers that flipping domains may soon be like flipping houses. If you can build it, you can flip it. The synonymous energies between the commodity of commercial real estate and domain markets as properties continue. The energy the individual domainer puts into every site, and the elbow grease researching keywords and SEO, will cap the Flippa.com revenue potential.
