Why Flip Blogs?
I get asked quite frequently why I recommend flipping blogs instead of flipping websites of other types such as static sites, ecommerce sites, single page sales letter sites, mini-sites, or any other types of websites that aren’t blogs.
There’s actually no easy answer to that question, but I will try to explain my reasoning a little bit here if you’ll bear with me. I’ve flipped many types of web sites. One of my favorite site flipping business models is to write an information product, create a sales letter, establish a couple months of good sales, then flip it for large profit. That’s a great way to make a lot of money flipping websites, so why don’t I recommend you start here?
Well, the reason is because this more elaborate site flipping business model I just described works well for me because I happen to have several key skills that are necessary to do this sort of thing. I have a lot of internet marketing and other online business experience. I can write compelling sales copy and I understand how to create a good product. I’m not bragging, I am just pointing out that there’s quite a lot of experience both online and offline that make this model viable for me. If you have it then, by all means, go for it! But most of the readers of this blog do not have that same level of experience.
However, the typical person who reads this blog does have enough knowledge and experience to build a blog in a hot niche and flip it for profit. And besides the fact that I know you have the skills necessary to build and sell start-up blogs, another great reason for you to do this is the fact that the market is huge!
Blogs are HOT sellers! And rightly so because by their very nature, blogs can easily do what most other, more static websites can’t. For instance, they are easy to update, easy to manage, and when you use WordPress and create new content, it’s very easy for Google to find out about it. Blogs are also naturally interconnected which makes it very easy for the search engine spiders to crawl them. That’s not necessarily the case with a static site.
Another great reason to flip blogs instead of other types of web sites is simply because people love blogs. People associate blogs with quality information that is updated frequently and there’s more interaction on them. Blogs are open and other people can comment on them or even submit guest posts as most owners allow. That fact alone gives your visitors a sense of ownership of your information. They are much more likely to trust information on blogs more than information that comes from static sites.
In addition to all of this, blogs are relatively easy to build and make them look cool. There are a ton of free themes and plug-ins out there that you can use on your blog, which will make your site very functional and give it a very professional, polished look. This helps a lot when you go to flip it because website buyers respond to the visual aspects of sites. A cool looking blog will sell for much more money than a static site with the same information, traffic, and earnings.
So, why flip blogs?
I think I have answered that question well enough above. If you are just getting started then I recommend using blog flipping as your main site flipping business model. But I am not saying you should only flip blogs. Expand your horizons and see what works best for you!
