How to Make Money with Website Flipping?

How to Make Money with Website Flipping?

Make Money

In simple words, website flipping is the process of acquiring a website at a cheap, or at least reasonable, price and then selling it at a higher price. Even if the website is not bought cheap, it can still be sold for a profit, provided it has some potential and it finds a suitable buyer. So, we can say that website flipping is just about trading websites, the primary aim being to make profit from every sale, or at least overall sales.

To make money with flipping or anything for that matter, you should have an understanding of what you are doing. When you know what you are doing then other things follow automatically. In respect with website flipping, you should essentially know which website has got potential to make money. There might be many sites on the net, which are good and capable of making money, but are not able to make it for different reasons. The owner of such website might have simply given up the hope of making money from them. You have to be in the market and keep watching on such websites. You can get them cheap if you are present on the right place at the right time.

Bargaining skills are required to make deals, either it be buying or selling. What you offer or what is being offered to you is always bargain able. Only when you find a profitable site at good rates, you will be able to sell for a decent profit to others. Therefore, it’s essential that you get the site at the cheapest rate possible.

Website Flipping can make you good money if you know how the market trends of the business move. There are certain kinds of websites that are in demand at a certain time and if you know which one to possess at which time, then it would be easy for you to sell such sites for a profit. Apart from that, those sites that are making money are always in demand. If you can show the revenue stats and can convince the buyer that it will be a profitable deal for him to have such a site, then you will definitely be successful in the website flipping business.

Some sites will be sold easily in a quick span of time, others might take a little longer. So, patience is the key in this business. You have to keep your nerves at the tough times and keep looking for the right buyer. Tough times are usually also those of great opportunities.

The 4 Giant Lies You’ve Been Told About Internet Marketing!

The 4 Giant Lies You’ve Been Told About Internet Marketing!

Make Money

To quote Peter Finch from the iconic 1970’s film “Network”: I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!

There are so many lies, half-truths, and misguided misinformation out there about online marketing that it’s driving me crazy!

I just finished reading yet another ebook by yet another “successful” Internet marketing guru. It kills me because the only thing most of these gurus are successful at is selling themselves and their “snake oil” to unsuspecting business people.

They don’t know squat about marketing a business on the Internet. But they do know how to push buttons. So these self-proclaimed “experts” LIE to you just to sell you their latest crap… books, tapes, and seminars or whatever it is they think they can get people to buy.

(Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised is someone out there isn’t selling the “Color by Number Marketing Kit” that comes with its own crayons!)

These gurus make it sound sooooo easy to make money online. They say stuff like, “You don’t need a computer connection” or “You don’t need any experience,” or “You don’t need a lot of money.”

According to them, you don’t even need a brain! You just need to BUY THEIR PRODUCT and you’ll make a gazillion dollars online in 30 days… or less.

If you believe in that crap, you need to have your head examined!

I got news for you, Bucko. Marketing is work… and successful, bring-home-the-big-profits marketing is HARD work.

That’s because marketing isn’t a crapshoot or a game of chance. It’s a business. And just like any other LEGITIMATE business, you need to invest time, effort and energy to make it grow into a successful enterprise.

And it even takes even MORE ENERGY to maintain that growth and manage your success for the long term.

Now it’s definitely true that the “wonders” of technology make it easier to succeed with an online business than a retail store. And even a one-person operation can utilize email, autoresponders, and the Internet’s global marketing capabilities to grow rich.

But although it’s easier online, it’s still work.

I know it’s work because it’s the work I do! I am the mentor for the some of the most super-successful websites/internet business people on the planet. I’m the behind-the-scene the guy, helping “little” businesses that are generating $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 a month and “big” businesses with annual revenue figures of $1,000,000.00 and MORE.

There’s one thing they have in common: they all agree with me that it takes dedication, commitment, and hard work to reap the benefits of selling online.

Simply put: you get out what you put it. My clients aren’t at the top of their industries by just pure dumb luck. Their upwardly mobile climb takes ongoing dedication, forward-thinking, and careful planning. Their success demands creativity, persistence, specialized knowledge, a quality product or service… plus good old-fashioned, shoulder to the wheel and nose to the grindstone, hard work.

Of course, having a mentor helps, too!

So right now, I’m going to mentor you and tell you the facts behind the big lies told across the Internet by the gurus of “make believe,” not marketing.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Big Lie #1: You don’t need ANY money to get started.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

That’s just complete B.S. If you’re flat broke and one paycheck from homeless, you’re gonna have a very tough time making it. Of course you need money to get started. Whaddya think… your smile is gonna pay the rent?

Now you don’t need a lot of money to succeed online, it’s true… certainly less than it would take to build and open your own Widget Shop on Main Street. But you do need some operating capital… and it stands to reason that having a large bankroll couldn’t hurt.

When your pockets are fat and your budget can include more money for “smart” marketing, you’ll be able to see (and enjoy) the results of your efforts even faster.

In short, it takes money to make money.

It takes money to educate yourself… to research the marketplace… and to develop your product or service.

It takes money to get a domain name, it takes money to host your site. It takes cold-hard cash to hire a designer to program your site and a copywriter to write a killer sales letter for you. You even need money in order to get a merchant account so you can accept the money your website generates.

And most importantly, it takes money to DRIVE traffic to your site.

Yeah… I know… I know! There are all those “free” traffic-generating ideas that you can pursue. I do a lot of them myself… but I don’t trust my success to traffic I can’t control.

Most of the time, it costs me money to drive quality traffic to my site, and it will cost you, too. Could be Pay-Per-Click, could be running an ezine ad, could be doing some sort of offline promotion….

But the bottom line is — you need to have a bottom line. Especially in the beginning, your cash-flow will be in one direction: OUT.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Big Lie #2: You don’t need a list.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

This is almost as ridiculous as “you don’t need money.” Give me a break. Sales aren’t made to the man in the moon… they’re made to people on your list. People you have carefully cultivated and “primed.”

You need to build a list because your money is IN the list!

You need to build a “herd” as quickly as humanly possible… but don’t purchase one of those deals where you “GET A MILLION EMAILS ON ONE CD.” (That’s not a list — that’s spam-in-the-making.)

And don’t do the co-registration deal. With this approach, where people go to a site to subscribe to a particular newsletter that they want, they find a checkbox (or other response mechanism) “advertising” your offer. If they’re interested, they check the box to agree to receive mailings from you.

This sounds like a good way to get traffic because unlike spam, you’ve been given permission to make contact. The problem is these people don’t know you from squat. To them, the checkbox is just an invitation for another form of spam.

The online sales game — any successful sale, in fact — is about connecting with the right buyer and make the right offer. The right buyer comes from the right list.

The best approach to list-building is strictly OLD SCHOOL: build it from scratch. That way, your list people are “pre-qualified” from the start. They KNOW you right from the beginning. They want to hear from you. They want to learn more from you. They want to listen to what you have to say.

And with a list of people like that, it doesn’t take long before they’ll want to BUY from you

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Big Lie #3: You don’t need a product or service.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Crap. Crap. Crap.

Let’s try a little role-playing game. Pretend you and I were thinking about starting an offline business together. What if I said to you, “Oh, don’t worry… all we need to do to succeed is open our store. We don’t need any products or services. But we’ll still make oodles of money!”

You’d think I was crazy, right?

Well, then why in the world would you believe the same line of crap when it’s being fed to you on the Internet by some expert whose credentials can’t be verified?

Commerce is all about products and services and if you want to do business, you NEED a quality product or service to sell. Preferably multiple products and services so that you can back-end sell your existing customers and increase their value to you exponentially by turning them into customers for life.

Do I hear you asking, “Dan, what about those super-affiliates who are making a lot of money promoting other’s products and services?”

That’s a good question because yes, there are some exceptions to this rule. But the list of exceptions who do well with someone else’s product or service is very short. Plus there are a lot of potential risks to being the middleman.

For example, let me ask you this: what if that company you’re promoting products for go out of business? What if they change their products? Where does that leave you?

The answer: High and dry.

And I can’t even begin to tell you how many affiliate “horror stories” I’ve heard. It’s common to hear about vendors not paying affiliates on-time. Or to learn that customers may bypass the affiliate link, so you don’t get paid.

Vendors tracking software screws up, there are “technical difficulties” so you don’t get credited for the sale… and on, and on, and on.

And here’s a killer: more often than not, you don’t get to keep the customer, they do. Many affiliate programs are set up so that you only get credit for the first sale a consumer makes. After that, all the profits stay with the vendor.

They keep all the back-end profits.

And when they back-end sell their products and services, you don’t get a dime. It doesn’t matter that your links are making the vendor rich. The effort is yours, but the profit is theirs.

When it comes to my income… I’m a control freak! But affiliate programs are out of your control. Your financial well-being is in someone else’s hands… and there’s nothing you can do to manage your success.

You can’t test different things on your site because it’s NOT your site. You can’t change what’s not working because it’s not yours to change. All you can do is cross your fingers and hope for the best…

Hardly a recipe for success, I think you’ll agree.

I am not saying you can’t promote other peoples products, but very often you should do it as a back-end, not front-end. You front-end your own stuff, and you can back-end other products and services.

There’s still one more problem with promoting other people’s stuff: when you stop promoting, your income also stops. You have to constantly be on the lookout to find the NEXT red-hot product and constantly be inking the next great deal.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Big Lie #4: You don’t need any experience.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Of course, you need experience to succeed online! The only job in the world that doesn’t need experience is “virgin.”

If you want to make money, you need to get hip as quickly as humanly possible. You need to figure out what works, what doesn’t, and how you can use all the “tricks of the trade” to build your success.

That’s why having a mentor works. Working with someone who’s “been there and done that” can save you time and money.

Your income can only grow to the extent that you do. You must educate yourself… and you must be open to the process.

Be prepared to make mistakes, try new things, and push yourself beyond your safe, secure comfort level. Do whatever it takes to earn your Masters at the School of Hard Knocks. Learn your lessons and develop the skill sets you need to make the kind of money you want to make.

On this season’s The Apprentice, Donald Trump put two teams in a head-to-head competition: book smarts and street smarts. You don’t have to play for one team or another, you can take the best of both worlds for your success strategy.

It pays to be educated and street-wise. Knowledge comes from books… and experience.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Big Lie #5: You don’t need any technical knowledge
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

This really is more of a medium-sized lie. It’s definitely true that you can be a master online marketer even if you don’t programming, HTML codes… and all that stuff. (Hey, you can watch television without understanding how it works!)

However… while you don’t need to know the how-to, you DO need to know what needs to be done and what YOU need for your site. If you don’t, you’re as “at risk” for being had as a 17-year old car owner who visits the Bad Guys Auto shop.

I’m the first to admit that before I got smart, I was screwed-over and taken advantage of by several dishonest webmasters. They did a lot of unnecessary programming and sent me a hefty bill. They charged me a lot of money and gave me crap.

I definitely overpaid… but I didn’t know any better. But you can be damn sure I rectified that situation with a little “quick study.”

I found out for myself that it doesn’t hurt to have a little of technical knowledge. If you’re familiar with basic HTML — at least when you want make changes to your site, you can do so instantly.

There are many things that only a programming professional will be able to do for you. But it’s nice when you don’t have to go to your webmaster and pay them per hour for a fix that could easily be a do-it-yourselfer.

If you’re the “exception that proves the rule” and are making money hand-over-fist as a super-marketer, you may disagree that the four big lies are lies at all. Congratulations on your success… but take it from me.

For the average… even the above-average person… online marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s a business and you have to treat it like a business. So if you’re not yet rolling in dough, but would like to be part of the Internet moneymaking machine…

Don’t buy into all the hype. Think it through. Use your common sense. Don’t try and get rich quick or you may find yourself in the poor house! BUT… you CAN and you WILL make money if you’re willing to do what it takes.

Which Niche To Conquer?

Which Niche To Conquer?

Make Money

I’m sure that you’ve heard about how many start up companies fail when they first begin, and the reason that most (if not all) of their failures is because they don’t create a good fountain to build on.

If we start right, it is easy to go right all the time. But if we start wrong, it’s much harder to go back and get it right. So please pay close attention, get out your pen and pencil, and let’s get to work.

When you first start, you need to decide which niche are you going to conquer.

When I first started my online business, I made the same mistake that 99.9% of people make. I read an ebook about how to make money online, and I decided that I would…

can you guess…?

I wrote my own book about “how to make money.” I compiled all of the regurgitated information I could find, put a twist on it, and started to sell it. After 2 weeks and a little over $30 in sales I started to think:

“Why am I selling a book about how to make money… when I have NEVER in my life made any real money!?!”

You may laugh, but it took me a few weeks before I realized that there was a problem there. I decided to stop selling my book, and started to look for other ways to make money online. What I stumbled upon next really gets exciting.

I was going to college at the time, and my degree is in “Computer Information Systems.” I knew some things about programming, but not enough to create anything real. What I did know is where programmers spend their time online.

So I started visiting places where you could hire programmers and got to know a few. I then started to search for a market that needed something.

What I came upon was the “Resale Rights” market. Basically this was people buying and selling digital products (ebooks and software) that they could then go and sell to other people. This concept really excited me. I purchased a lot of these products, but struggled to sell them because all of the products had links back to the author’s websites.

These authors were making money every time I sold these products… on the backend. When I realized that, the first thing I thought was,

“I wish that had a way to brand all of these files with my own links.”

And there the idea was born. I just needed to create a product that would brand these “resale rights” products. I wouldn’t be competing directly with that market, but make a complementary product that would benefit them all.

I went back to the programmers that I had been building relationships with, and gave them my idea. Within a matter of weeks they created a product that is now known as Zip Brander. (You can see the product at

I’m not going to go into how I marketed it in this lesson (I’ll save that for another day), but with the one product I made over $1,000 my first month with it, and it made us over $50,000 in 2004 alone.

Since then I’ve been able to branch out to a lot of various niches and have had amazing success in most of them. In other issues I will share exact case studies of these that you will be able to model in your businesses.

How To Pick The Right Niche

I want to show you now how to choose your niche. Just follow these 3 simple steps.

Step 1 – Do not choose the “how to make money” niche. I’m not sure why, but I made this mistake along with thousands of other people. This is the most competitive niche in the world. If you want to fight against the marketers, good luck. But there is a lot more money (and it’s made a lot easier) in the niches I’ll explain below.

Step 2 – Look at your personal talents, and start from there. I have had this conversation more then once – usually every time I discuss an online business with someone.

I ask them what their hobbies are that we could market, and they almost always they tell me that they don’t have anything they could sell. The problem is that people usually look at their current job, and can’t think of ways they can market that skill.

Don’t look at your current job, but look at what you do on your free time. The thing that is your passion. This is where you’ll find your niche.

Here are examples of the last 3 conversations I’ve had:

Friend #1 – works construction, and couldn’t think of a marketable skill. After 3 1/2 minutes realized that he has twin girls. Found there was a huge market for informational product in this niche and him and his wife are now working on their first product.

Friend #2 – works as a manager at Office Depot. One the weekends loves to shot guns with his dad. They are creating a software program that helps people to increase their accuracy when shooting. They are also creating video demonstrations on how to improve your accuracy.

Friend #3 – came to me asking for help promoting a “how to make money online” course. He had to call me using a video relay because he’s deaf. I told him that he was going in the wrong direction with what he was promoting. He had no experience making money online. I asked him what his hobbies were, and surely enough told me he didn’t have any that he could sell. Before I even asked that question I knew what his niche was. He’s been speaking through sign language his whole life, and there are thousands of people searching every month on how to learn sign language.

What do you do in your free time when no one else is around? Are you good at video games? Are you a good cook? Do you play any sports? Do you throw dinner parties? Do you collect anything? Can you play an instrument? What is your passion? When you can answer this… then you know what your niche is.

Step 3 – Research your market. Don’t worry – this part isn’t nearly as hard as you’d think. Within about 5 minutes I can usually tell if a niche is worth looking at. There are 3 things you need to do, and you’ll know if it’s the right niche.

First – Check out the search engines. There are a lot more advanced tools then this, but this one is completely free to use. Go to and type in your niche. This will show you how many times that word was searched for that month on their search engine. If there are a lot of people searching for it each money, the it’s likely a good niche.

Second – Search for online communities related to your niche. People with similar interests migrate to the same places online. Wrestlers hang out at wrestling forums, poets hang out in poetry message boards, etc… Go to and type in “________ forums” or “_________ message board” or “_______ groups” (put your niche in the blank). Visit these forums and see if they are active and how many members they have. You can often find forums with 10,000+ members in it. If you find good communities focused around your niche, then this is another good sign.

Third – Search for similar products. If you can find others selling products in your niche, then it’s usually a good sign that there’s some life there. Purchase their products and get to know your competition (because they are going to become your JV partners in another lesson).

After getting this far, you should have a good idea about which niche you would like to conquer, as well as some idea about if it is a profitable niche.

In the next lesson we are going to discuss how you can turn those talents into a product. Product creation is one of the most exciting parts of the game for me, so look out for that lesson coming soon.

4 Steps to Beat Your Competitors

4 Steps to Beat Your Competitors

Make Money

Plan, Plan, Plan – It won’t happen overnight. Nothing good ever does. In the beginning, you’re going to create a plan then be ready to work that plan. You often hear about throwing up a website and making money while you sleep. Technically, yes, that’s all there is to it. But… how does that site get up on the Net?

You have to create your site or have someone else create it. That means you have to take the time to learn professional website development (PLEASE, don’t create some junky, homemade-looking site!), or you have to pay someone who already knows how to create websites. And what will you have on your site? Your own products? (Having your own e-products is highly recommended.) Someone else’s products? You’ll need to decide before your site is created.

How will people pay for the products they buy from your site? Do you have a merchant account? Will you become an affiliate for someone else so you don’t need a payment system?

Will you go for high search engine rankings or rely on word-of-mouth, PPC ads, and other types of paid advertising? If you want good search engine optimization, you’ll have to plan for that upfront. Again, you’ll have to take time to learn how to do it or pay someone else who already knows how.

Before you take one more step toward launching your own Web business, find the answers to the questions above.

Be Ready to Work – Once your site is ready to launch, how will people find you? How, exactly, will you drive qualified visitors to your site? Will you use organic (free) search engine listings? Will you use Pay-Per-Click search engine ads? Will you buy ezine ads? Do you have other means for getting customers to visit your site? People won’t just come out of the blue, you’ll have to bring them to your site somehow.

Even if you choose to go for the organic search engine listings, you’ll have about a 4-week to 4-month wait before seeing your new site listed. What will you do in the meantime to drum up business?

How Will You Keep It Going? – Prosperous businesses are continually growing to keep up with customer demands. How will you keep your online business moving forward? Will you do research into what consumers want? Will you guess? Will you just follow the crowd?
You’ll want to have some method for gauging customer responses so you can know what your site visitors want and how to provide it for them.
One such way is to use surveys. You can create online surveys in order to keep up with the needs/wants of your site visitors.

Service Is Key! – In order to make it in the long run, you simply must provide exceptional customer service to your clients. Those who lie, steal, cheat, or hide are destined to fail.
Understand this: Your success depends on your customers’ success. If they aren’t happy, you won’t be in business long. Make every effort to treat them as the kings and queens they are.

Formula To Achieve Success Online

Formula To Achieve Success Online

Make Money

I’m writing this article because I thought you might want to know my formula for success for my online business.

This sounds very simple and yet, it might change your whole mindset. It applies when you are building your own online business.

Throughout my journey to achieve success, I’ve encountered many people who struggled to achieve success online. Most of them ask me questions like, “how to achieve success”.

Or questions like, “how to make more money from the internet”.

What’s the formula to achieve online success?

Ok, read on and I’ll reveal it.

The formula is simple. When you are working, you must have in mind that ultimately what you want to achieve from your online business is this:

Work less, earn more.

But first, you must understand this formula in order to achieve that.

Here’s the formula:

Assuming you are working 8 hours a day, and you are getting X result (X can be any amount of money you are getting now.)

Where most people failed to achieve success is, they try to earn X + Y (Y can be any amount of extra money you want to get) without finding a way to work less first. In another words, finding a way to work less while still getting X result.

In order for you to get Y result, you should find ways to work less than 8 hours first and still be getting X result. Let’s say 6 hours.

Once you able to achieve that, only then can you consider how to find ways to get Y result.

In a nutshell,

First step:

Work 8 hours (or whatever your existing working hours are) and get X result.

Second step:

Find ways to work 6 hours and still get X result.

Third step:

Work 8 hours again but get X + Y results.

Once you achieve this, your next step is to find ways on how to achieve X + Y results by working only 6 hours instead of 8 hours. Once you find that, only than you can think about getting Z result (Z can be any amount of extra money you want to have).

So, repeat the whole process:

First step:

Work 8 hours get X + Y results.

Second step:

Find ways to work 6 hours and still get X + Y results.

Third step:

Work 8 hours again but get X + Y + Z results.

Keep on repeating this process until you get the maximum results you can get (this can be A+B+C+X+Y+Z).

At some stage, you’ll probably reach the optimum of getting the results and you can hardly earn more by working 8 hours a day.

Once you achieve this, congratulations.

Now, what you need to do is to find ways to WORK LESS but still get the same results.

So at the end, you’ll be able to WORK LESS And EARN MORE.

People fail to achieve online success because they don’t know or understand this simple formula and practice it!

This formula stressed managing your fundamentals before engaging yourself to earn more. People failed to achieve more results because they try to earn more without learning how to maintain and work less first. So, they’ll end up working more hours each day.

That’s why, you can see many people becoming more stressed when their business increases.

I’ve been practicing this formula. Each day when I work, I’ll look into my existing business and find ways to reduce the work. Once I got that, only then I’ll think on how to make more money.

So, each month, I’m making more money but working less or putting the same amount of time invested. This is how you can achieve success without getting more stress in life.

What you should be doing now is go look at your job or business and apply this formula if you want to achieve success in the long term.

If you are like most of us your website sales are slow and unpredictable and you need to think of new ways to make money online without taking more time and effort. All of your time should be dedicated to producing your product, right? Well, here are just a few ways to make a little bit or a lot of money online without any effort.

1. Affiliates
Sign up to become an affiliate for other businesses that are on the net. I only sign up with the companies that I honestly would recommend to anyone. All that you have to do is refer your customers to these sites. Once one of my referrals makes a purchase, I receive a small payment. With some of the affiliate programs the fee is quite large.

2. Google Ads
I was not too sure about this one but I signed up and I am now convinced. The first week that I had Google ads on my website I made $.18 and the next week I made $6.45! Wow! Big boost. If I keep this up, I just may be able to pay for my web host by the end of the month!

3. Google Search
Works close to the same way as the ads. People use your search tool, make a purchase and then you are compensated.

4. Amazon
Another great tool that will trickle in a few dollars here and there, all for 10 minutes of your time putting a little code into your website and Amazon does the rest.

5. Selling Ad Space
You could sell ad space if you have a site that has high traffic.

6. Selling Subscriptions to Your Newsletter
If you have a newsletter that has high demand information, you could charge for your newsletter.

7. Selling Ad Space in Your Newsletter
Sell ad space in in your newsletter. Same drill as with ad space on your website. Just put a box on your newsletter with a note inside it that says “Your Banner Could Go Here” Then have a page that tells how many subscriber that you have, how often your newsletter goes out and what type of content it usually contains plus the price per ad.

8. Selling E-Books
Do you know something about your craft or hobby that you know people would pay to learn as well? Then sell it in an e-book. What a great way to make a little extra money. You take the time to write a good quality e-book then just fill the orders. You could even set it up so that once the e-book order has been processed and paid for, it goes out automatically using an auto responder without you even having to lift a finger, except to go to the bank to collect your money.

9. Consulting – Offer your services
Do you sell wedding supplies and know all of the best suppliers around? Do a little research and offer your services as a wedding coordinator. Offer your assistance to the people that want to plan their own wedding, but need a little bit of help.

Remember, you wont get rich with just one of these programs, but you just may make a tidy little sum every month with a combination of all of them.
