In the real estate world, it is possible to make a considerable amount of money by flipping houses. This is done when a run-down house is purchased for a little bit of money, and then the house is fixed up and renovated. Once the home is renovated it is possible to sell the residence for a large profit. Many individuals do this full-time because once they learn the ins and outs of the business, the house can be flipped quickly and sold quickly.
Website flipping is similar to this process, except instead of purchasing in-person real estate, you purchase virtual real estate. When a website is not bringing in a profit, it is possible to buy the actual website from the owner. Once the website is purchased, it is renovated and fixed up, and with the help of pay-per-click marketing, a large profit is made, although it generally takes a little longer to bring the money in, as you don’t sell the website immediately and it takes some time to bring in more money from the ads.
When a website is purchased, you now own the website for a designated number of years (depending on the agreement). Once the agreement period ends, you can extend your lease on the website, sell it to someone else, or just let it expire, in which case someone else can purchase the domain. If you have bought the website in hopes of turning a profit by utilizing our website flipping methods, you are going to hold onto the site for a set period and either allow it to bring you in a gradual amount of income or sell it to someone, once you have proven the site is profitable.
Like any other website flipping project, you do need to spend some time, money, and effort renovating the site. This means redesigning the website, making it user-friendly, and improving the SEO, or search engine optimization. There are many ways to perform this task, including adjusting the keywords and creating backlinks. The more backlinks a website has the better it is going to perform during an Internet search. Once the website you are flipping can bring in more traffic you can bring in more money, and it is possible to do this with pay-per-click marketing.
Pay-per-click marketing is a specific kind of advertisement used to bring in money to the website you are flipping. Some ads bring in money just when an individual arrives at your website. Other ads, such as these pay-per-click ads generate income when someone clicks on the ad. It is more difficult to have someone click on an ad than just view your website, but if you have successful ads on the site, you can generate more money via this method, as the pay-per-click ads do pay more if someone selects the ad to visit. Some good Pay Per Click Marketing companies include: Google Adsense, Chitika, ClickBooth, and Adbrite
To successfully utilize pay-per-click marketing, you need specific keywords on the site. These keywords are also used by individuals to locate your website on a search engine. The keywords are used by the pay-per-click advertisement firm to determine what ads to place on the website. The ads are going to be related to the keywords, so a visitor to the website is going to be more interested in the ads and more likely to select the ad. For example, if the website you are flipping is about Ford vehicles, the ads placed on the site might be about service and part sites you can receive services for on the Ford vehicles. Both the ads and the website can work hand in hand, so you can bring in more money. Because the keywords are so important, you need to specifically optimize these words. You need to make sure the words are specific to your content. General words are not going to help you out. Generalized words are going to bring up thousands of different search results when an individual is looking for your content, so you are going to lose hits and web traffic. On top of this, the pay-per-click ads placed on the site are not going to be as specific, so fewer individuals are going to click on the ad, due to the less specific advertisement placed on the website. With these two issues of losing hits and losing clicks, you aren’t going to make much money on the flip, and you might end up losing money, or at least the flipping process is going to take significantly longer.
Once you have the specific keywords placed in your content, you will then be able to place the ads correctly on your website. When you are using a pay-per-click marketing scheme during the website flipping process, you are given an HTML code by the ad marketing firm. You can place this ad code anywhere on the website, but some locations are going to generate more interest than others. You want to place the ads where the viewer’s eyes are going to be. This means, that if someone is going to be reading content on the left side of the screen, you want the add right next to the written information. This way, the viewer’s eyes are going to see the ad. You don’t want to place the ad on the bottom of the screen where nobody is going to have access to it, and you don’t want someone to have to scroll down the page to see the ad. If a visitor to the site has to scroll down the page, they might miss the important ad, and not click on it. The more eyes you can bring to the pay-per-click ad, the more likely someone is going to click on it, and the greater chance there is that someone is going to click on the ad, making your flip more profitable and increasing the amount of money you can make when selling the website.
