I thought it was about time to create a post about a topic that I find really interesting and that’s reverse engineering sites on flippa that are for sale.
I regularly spend at least once a week on Flippa simply to look at sites that are making money.
That’s because you can find so much information about a site that you can add to your watch list to refer back to in the future when you want to create your own new site on a buyer site.
Here is a list of actions that you can take when you start out reverse engineering flippa.
Firstly go to Flippa and look at a variety of searches:
Sites that are making money
Sites that are getting traffic
Searching for particular keywords such as:
When you then see relevant searches come up you can then delve even further into it according to:
What you can then find is quite simply amazing.
You can find sites that are already making money.
Quite often the seller will indicate how they are making money ie:
Spending time looking at these ads can be very profitable to you
When you find a niche that interests you you can then expand on it yourself:
Think of creating a facebook page or web 2.0 property that then links to another web 2.0 property where you do your preselling.
You don’t even need to have your own domain for it yet, just wait for it to be profitable and then expand.
Consider direct linking from video promotions.
Consider press releases.
It’s actually very exciting because all the marketing hard yards have already been done by someone else so you can then review what they’ve done and duplicate it with your own special marketing methods.
Hope these simple flippa marketing tips help and inspire you.
