by Sushant Risodkar · 100 comments

There are many ways of making money online amongst which flipping websites is probably one that gets more attention. And this business is growing larger by larger everyday as more and more people and trying their hands into it.

I know Building & Flipping Mini Niche Sites is something very common and the general opinion is that this method of generating revenue is now saturated. However, you’d actually be surprised at how wrong everyone’s assumption is.

The key in this case is efficiency and quick turnaround. You need to keep in mind at all times that your aim is to make as many mini niche sites as you can, in as little time, while maintaining the high quality and look.

In this post, I will be explaining some key points on which you should focus if you are looking to make money online flipping websites.

Flipping Websites To Make Money Online(Stare at the above pic for 10 sec. to see something interesting)

Build Them Quick & Nice

Use wordpress. Yes, Blogs. That’s what we will be making. Register 5 domains to start with. Try to keep them all in a different niche. But make sure the niche is popular and in high demand(for example, during Christmas season you could have made a blog with Christmas dishes recipies, songs etc.). Of course, not too competitive; just enough to interest potential buyers. Get a new shared hosting account to get managed hosting services. Add those 5 domains. Install WordPress on all of them.

Configure & Customize

From this point, start working on them one by one. Individually, You don’t have to put up custom made themes for any of these blogs. A decent looking theme (If you have developer rights to a magazine theme, that would be awesome) will do. But remember to have a custom header and logo for each site. It helps differentiate your blog from the rest that use the same theme as yours.

For plugins, don’t go on experimenting with every new plugin. Install the necessary ones. Over the top of my head, I can recommend All in One SEO, Google Sitemap Generator, Comment Captcha plugin, Secure Login system, Google Adsense management, and Contact Us plugin.

Content and Pages.

Once you’re done with plugins and theme(s). Your next step is adding content. Remember the key – quick and simple. You don’t need 100,000 words of content in a ‘mini niche site‘. I’d say, 4-5 posts of 400-500 words each will be more than sufficent. And of course, pages. Do NOT forget to edit and change the About page. And make sure you add a ‘Contact Us’ page.

Additionally, try to include (if appropriate) these pages; ‘Privacy Policy’, ‘T.O.S’, ‘Sponsored Posts’, ‘Link Exchange’. They may not apply to every niche, but include them in the ones you feel they would do well in. They raise the overall ‘professional’ outlook.

SEO and Promotion

You installed the SEO plugin. Use that, along with pretty-permalinks and make sure your blog has search engine friendly URLs as well as appropriate titles, keywords, description, etc for each post and page. This is optional, but recommended.

Once you’re done with SEO, you’ll have a mini blog with content, a unique logo/header, a decent theme, and all the necessary plugins.

Now, you can either flip it, or promote it a bit, THEN flip it. Promotion would be simply adding all the posts to the top social bookmarking sites and submitting your blog(s) to a few high PR (but free) directories.

Flip It!

You can price it whatever you want. But an average price of $25 – $50 is optimum. If you promoted it, then mention that in your auction. It gives your blogs an advantage. You can try selling your niche sites made for flipping on websites like:

  • Sitepoint Marketplace
  • Digitalpoint Forums


The idea is basically to create as many mini blogs as you can and flip them for cheap. Since you’re selling them for relatively low price ($25 or $50 for a unique content mini site is quite cheap) you can be sure they’ll all sell quick. And because they’re mini blogs, they should be quicker to construct. If you are ready to jump start any business be sure to get involved in flipping mini niche sites.

Thanks for the article. I always want to build mini niche sites then scale this up to 10 or 20 sites that goes automaticly. You know that it isn’t so much hard work behind this sites, but they always gives you $$$.

And after for example, 5 months, that each sites maybe give you 500$, you have for example 20 sites, 20 sites x 500$ = 10 000$, then sale this sites FOR 25 000$

well i dont think nowadays people buy sites which dont have some sort of income and traffic.. if i am able to generate some sort of traffic to the site i would never sell it 🙂

Nice tips. I’ve started a mini site 3-4 months ago. It’s not getting good traffic, so I’m planning to sell it.

There’s always good money being made in website flipping. However, you need to take the time to add value to that website by improving its design, content and traffic as well as ad revenue. The longer you own the website and the more you increase its value, the more money you could potentially make.

I’ve bought some site flipping guides before but I never actually went out and flipped a site. I just thought it would take too much effort to do and the hardest part is selling it off.

Flipping a small blog is an ok-way of getting some income. If you do promote it well, then chances are that you will sell it for a higher price.

Writing fast and coming up with creative domain names is an optimal way of getting income through.

Article right here for building these types of blogs!

Good article, the author should have pointed out that Flippa actually coined the term “flipping” in the context of selling/buying websites, and they are the industry leader in this sector!

Making a site may be easy, but flipping might not be that easy as it sounds , plus sites like flippa have their own commissions and stuff, am not discouraging but it isn’t easy , its manageable.
