There has been tons of talk the last few years in internet marketing circles concerning flipping websites and for good reason. Flipping websites is a really simple way to earn money online. With so many grand promises of big money with minimal work, flipping websites really is a very straight forward and fairly easy way to make money. If you can write a few articles, create a Wordpress blog on your own domain name, then you are on your way. Add content to your site, monetize it and then flip it. The more money you can generate prior to selling it, the higher your asking price will be.
But what about people who can handle content creation but know absolutely nothing about website development and who aren’t comfortable with Wordpress? Is there a way for them to successfully flip websites? The answer is a resounding yes. They can write the content themselves and then read the free Wordpress blog installation tutorials available on the Internet. One blog tutorial site that is very useful for beginner is becomeablogger.com. It provides 10 free tutorials that teach you everything you need to know to set up a Wordpress blog successfully.
You can change the look and design of your Wordpress blog any time without paying a single dime. There are many free Wordpress templates online that have very attractive designs and are appropriate for a number of subjects. Simply download the blog template and upload it to your blog and your blog will have a new look.
If you still need help in the technical aspect, consider using some of the top freelance websites to find freelancer to assist you. Internet marketing forums are another great place to find people that can help you with your Wordpress blog.
It is suggested that you do some research about the best plugins to use for your blog. If you commit a couple of hours to researching the best way to build your blogs, this will be a skill set that you can use for a long time.
Next, make sure that you have your blog monetized. Go to Clickbank and find a few hot affiliate products and copy their banner codes to your blog. If someone else is managing your blog, then send them the code. You may also want to use text links in lieu of a banner. Add Adsense in strategic spots for an additional source of income.
Advertise your blog using traditional internet marketing methods such as press releases, articles, pay-per-click and social networking websites to build traffic and incoming links for your blog. Then sell it for about 6-9 months revenue. If you create several blogs, you can sell them in bulk and make a good amount of money.
There is a lot of money to be made in flipping blogs. That’s it. With this information, you can start making money with Wordpress blogs immediately. Remember, it will require that you be able to generate some traffic and income. However, once you do that, you may start selling it to a buyer who wants to purchase a website that is already making money.
