I like to “window shop” on Flippa, i find it quite entertaining to read the descriptions on websites people have made, and determining if it is a site that was created to be sold, or if it was a successful website the owner can no longer run or maintain?
There are one specific type of website that keeps popping up on Flippa recently, and that is the “PLR Health Blogs”, which is a very simple blog, with a simple theme, with 20-50 already posted PLR Articles on weight loss, dieting or other various health topic with usually with Adsense, a Comission Junction Offer or a Clickbank Ebook or various other form of monetization.
These sites are usually sold for around $100 – $200, which I though was pretty interesting seeing as you can get a pack of PLR articles for free – $20 and a domain for $10, and if you slap an install of WordPress and a free theme on that you have just invested $30 in something that could potentially be sold for over $100 with a little bit of work and salesmanship.
That is of course… if you promote it right.
I would imagine if you make a few of these and let them sit and gain PR over a period of time, build backlinks with a drip-feed method over 4-6 months and write a good sales pitch for your Flippa listing, you could quite reasonably expect to get around $100 for one of these blogs, granted that they do in fact have PR and a decent Domain.
If you do it right these sites could pay for themselves with Adsense after a few months and gain you passive income.
I will definitively be trying this in the future, and report my findings and techniques once I am ready to make my sale.
