Hello! I want to thank you for stopping by. I always hate writing these “about me” pages because I never know what to write. Let’s see…I’m a Virgo, I like long walks on the beach – lol. O.K., so that’s probably not what I’m supposed to write on this page. Let’s get serious already!
My Internet Marketing career technically started in 2005 but I didn’t start making any money until 2006. Sound familiar? Yes, it took me a while (and several hundred dollars on ebooks and courses) to figure this whole Internet stuff out but I stuck with it and eventually achieved some success as an affiliate marketer. I think that first year I made a whopping $15,000! While it wasn’t a lot of money, I realized I was on to something and my business grew from there.
I am NOT an Internet Marketing guru so I’m not going to brag how I’ve made millions and that I’m writing this from my beach home in the Bahamas, but I have made enough money over the past few years as an affiliate marketer to make what would be a full-time income for most people. I didn’t get into site flipping until late 2007 when I sold my first site for $6,500.
Today I continue to spend the bulk of my time as an affiliate marketer but site flipping has become an integral part of my business. It compliments my affiliate business perfectly. If the right site comes along for sale, I can buy it and get a head start on my affiliate marketing. And when I get bored with a site or I realize I can’t give a site the attention it deserves, I can sell it for an infusion of cash to grow my business.
Now if you read between the lines of what I just wrote, you’ll realize I’m not a hard core site flipper. I’m not constantly buying and selling websites. I’m not a short term flipper. I focus on the long term. To that end, I primarily only BUILD and then sell websites. And when I sell them, I only do so after I’ve made money from them for at least six months. Even then I will only sell them if I’m bored with them or I just don’t have the time to dedicate to them – or I need an infusion of cash.
Let me give you an example. I owned a couple of websites that promoted popular health supplements. Both of these sites were doing really well in terms of traffic and revenue for several months. One was bringing in $1,500/month and the other one was bringing in $400/month. This was income that was totally on auto pilot. I wasn’t doing anything with these sites. It was all passive income. The problem was, I knew that if I didn’t start giving these sites attention, the income would eventually decline. I also knew these sites were boring the hell out of me and I had no interest in doing anything with them. I knew it was time to sell;) I ended up selling one for $13,500 and the other one for $5,200!
