Buy Low, Sell High
This is an old saying about investing but it works for the web as well. Thinking like a pawnbroker can help in buying a site and it will cause you to be careful to not over pay. The first thing you should learn is to buy the sites for a low cost. Therefore you should only bid on sites that are a great deal or have been discounted. You should also be willing to go in with a very low offer or lowball your offer so that you can make a higher profit margin.
The next step is to sell you site for a high amount. However this means two things: you have to improve the value of the site and make someone else think that you have improved not only the site but its value. This will mean you need to have experience building websites and getting more traffic but also having the mind frame of a seller.
Finally what you and the buyer agree to is what your profit margin will be. If you can buy the site for low and sell it for high this is what determines your success as a website flipper.
Making it Automatic
The flips usually happen very quickly. Therefore it is difficult to get the process down pact. You need to get more experience in order to do this. There is no way around it except flip more web sites.
You will also want to learn from past mistakes because this is important to not making the same mistakes again. Experiences will not matter if you continue to make the same errors and repeat the same mistakes. The more you flip websites the better you will become at it. Your process will slowly become more automatic.
Will this guarantee that I will have success all the tie? Too bad this is not the case. However similar to all skills if you get good at something you can do it in a well and consistently then you can make a lot of money from doing this thing that you enjoy.
