Can you make money buying and selling domains?
I have noticed just recently all over youtube and the internet many people are discussing buying and selling websites. Whether it is just the domain or the complete website. Many people who do this they call this site flipping, they look for websites in different niches or their niche they scan it and know if it is good value or not by looking at the data and analytics. So is a site "flipping" worth it, as any of you done this and what was your results if any on-site flipping. Maybe you have been thinking about doing it but not sure where to start or what to do. Some of the techniques can easily help you earn cash from buying and selling domains.

How to by a website and what to look for is what most people ask. Well, there are many sites out there a few free ones and premium membership ones. I do think flippa site is a good site even if you go on their to do bit research see what the site as to offer. Also, a well-known one is empire flippers, which as a good solid background and offers a valuable service. Check these out and use there search to look for profitable niche preferable what you know things about in order to earn from this.

Always check there analytics look for changes in their traffic diagrams before purchasing as often some when selling websites will buy bulk traffic in order to get more for there site. You don't want to buy it then a month later it is dead. So look for the consistency in the flow of traffic you want a steady flow with a good amount of real visitors. If there is good graph then drops... ermm no stay clear from this as you will be out of pocket. So if you see a great niche and good traffic with good income rates of the traffic whether its Amazon affiliate earnings or Adsense then go with it. Once you have the site it may have only a few articles this is why try to get a site what you know the area of a field about.

Like me, I work in the paranormal and ghost stories writer psychic development, so I would buy a site around these like meditation yoga and so on. Once I have these say it earns short of $100 a month I would flip this and within a good few months I could double that perhaps triple and be in pocket with profit. Some tactics some use which I know a few of them and they buy the site they do few articles a day till they have an extra 30 articles or more and then they just leave the site for a while. Once they come back to it they notice the movement of traffic and maybe some rankings in google if you have a good sense of SEO. Now maybe some of you may have other opinions on website flipping let's hear them.

Would you do the website buying and selling business? Could you make profit from it? or perhaps you already do this then please share your views let us know what you think.

Yes, you can make money buying and selling domains. I only know this because that's what my son did. I have never done it.

That is some kind of trading and trading is a successful business. There are distress sales of domains and that is the time when they are bought and sold to those specially beginners who just wait to buy a domain at a reasonable price.

Since a year I am trying to flip domains and websites, but without any luck. When I heard that you can make money by selling a domain, I registered domains. Later, someone advised me that I will get a good price if I build websites and sell. Then I built websites. Until the website is sold, paying for hosting and domain renewal is costing me a lot of money.

I've seen people make money by buying and selling domains, but I assure you that it's not that easy especially when one is starting out in the business. There is need to have someone that would be ready to guide anyone looking to make money through such business.

Yes, I can and I do. Ever since I began with the various internet jobs, I have loved buying and selling domains and have made money from this business at many occasions. Buying and selling domains is still my best online business till now because I make lots of money from this. What I simply do is that I buy domains through most popular domain registrars and sell at domain selling markets at a little profit.

You don't even have to build a website and create traffic to go into buying and selling of domains. if you have a knack for coming up with great domain names that might be interesting to other people or organizations, you may be able to resell the domain name at a profit without doing any significant work on it. It may be something I can do in the future but not at this time when my plate is full. You'll have to invest money to buy domains and hope that it will sell. There are some who have been successful with it and some who have lost money, too. You'll stumble into a fortune if someone wants your domain badly. For example, the domain facebook.com was acquired for $200K from its old owner which used to host an unrelated site on it.

Yes! You can definitely make money by buying and selling website domains. I am not particularly experienced with this kind of business, but I know some people who have already made money from this type of business. I think it's worth testing to evaluate.

Same here. I don't have too much personal experience but I have a friend that has been in the flipping domain "business" for over 6 years now and he is making very nice amounts. However, it took many fails for him to reach the current spot.

I am not well versed on the domains so I have to admit that I am not in the position to be selling domains and earning from it. But I know of a friend who buys domains and sells it after sometime. He said that a domain is a salable commodity now that you can make your own domain, use it for sometime and later on sell it for a profit. My idea is to use the domain for your website, earn from it and when the time comes that you get tired of your website then you can still sell it for a profit.

i have read on forums about those selling and buying domain and I believe it lucrative since Everyone now needs a site,a blog or a forum and they will certainly need domain names but one thing to note is that one should research thoroughly about a domain name before buying to sell.

You definitely can make a lot of money flipping domains IF you know what you're doing. If you think that you can just buy any domain cheap and sell it for more than you're wrong. You have to consider many factors such as the actual name, how well it will be able to sell in the actual market and so on. A few years back making money flipping domains was much easier because now too many people try and do it.

Flipping domains involve hard work because one friend said that an old domain that you bought will be needing a lot of enhancements like the design and the contents which are the main framework of the website. That means you can only do domain flipping to earn if you have the skills in re-designing the website and writing the new contents. But you don’t earn by just buying and letting it stay for a month then selling it again.

I have seen how it works and i think its profitable specially when the domain has its regular audience and has a good history. Of course you still have to work on it after purchasing one and still depends how you manage it. But the fact that its a established domain gives you an upper hand.

I think this is a good business to get into if you have mad skills. I've heard that you can make websites, build them to a level they get traffic and that traffic converts to sales and then sell your website for 30 times the number of sales it makes. So if it makes 1000 in sales you sell it for 30,000. This is an amazing strategy in my opinion. You can do this for a few months and then be able to reach your income goals in a very short amount of time. This is matter of utilizing your skills. You can then continue to consult on ways for the website to get traffic.

No doubt you can. However, like with most things it will probably take hard work. Anyway, before getting started, you need to know what your doing. Well, that would be the case with anything generally.

OK, for one thing, you need to know what kind of domain sells. For instance, a very long and hard to understand one probably won't.

Yes, I think we can make money for doing so. I have read people from forums and blogs talking about that, but I have not try that before. I don't think I will ever do that, as I think it is quite risky and we need to come up with money to buy the domains first. I am not an expert in this area and I don't dare to simply invest in it. Moreover, I don't have interest in this business.
