Buy A Blog, Online Store, App, Saas Biz…

Flippa is an online marketplace where you can buy digital businesses including blogs, eCommerce sites, and more. Instead of trying to build your own business from scratch, Flippa can help jumpstart your progress by helping you buy a business that’s already up and running. 

One of the biggest benefits of using Flippa is that it has listings for sale at a wide range of price points. Some listings are just a few hundred bucks while others range to over a million dollars. You can buy businesses outright or big on them through an auction in hopes of getting a better deal.

Flippa also has a crowdfunding marketplace, where you can invest in growing businesses instead of buying them.

How Much Can I Make?

This depends entirely on the site that you buy, its existing or future revenue potential, as well as your savviness in managing it.

One example of a potential site for sale on Flippa is Prim and Prep, an 8-year-old blog that’s focused on male grooming. This site gets 27,000+ page views per month, generates $1,860 per month, and operates at a 99% profit margin. 

The current asking price is $49,000 which means that it’s selling at a profit multiple of 2.2X (since it generates around $22,000 in profit per year). With this in mind, you could potentially purchase this site and recoup your investment within 2 years. After that, you’d have $1,860 in free cash flow each month.

If this is out of your budget range, don’t worry. As we said, there are listings for sale at all price points.

Getting Started

If you’re interested in starting and growing your own business then Flippa can be a great place to get started. For most listings, almost all of the upfront work has already been done. This means that you can just take the reigns of a revenue-producing business and go from there.

You can browse through Flippa’s listings by creating a profile.

You can also follow Flippa’s newsletter to get alerted of new listings or listen to their podcast.
