7 of the Best Marketplaces for Website Flipping

7 of the Best Marketplaces for Website Flipping

Websites are now a very important thing for businesses. Some websites are the bread and butter of their businesses. They are used for various purposes like information sharing or blogging, business promotion, and e-commerce. Their number of uses are increasing and the number of websites on the internet is skyrocketing.

Websites are now regarded as a serious businesses and they are being looked at more and more as sources of incomes versus the hobbies they once were. There are sites on Google where one can sell and buy websites if they so choose. The practice of selling and buying websites is called “website flipping”. Through website flipping, the most valuable websites can even be sold for billions of dollars. The domains alone are also sold with these platforms. Thus, the buy sell website model is a proven business model and a highly profitable one too.

In this article, I will discuss some websites flipping platforms where you can easily sell websites and domains:

1. Flippa

Probably the pioneer and the leader of this business, Flippa was the first site to start domain selling and buying platforms and providing all the support to the business owners who wanted to do it. There are literally thousands of sites and domains listed on it. The site works with escrow protection for secure payments and to avoid any frauds or scams. The sites and domains are sold within an auction system. The auction works through bidding where interested customers bid the price for the site and it is up to the seller to accept it or not. There is also an absolute price, and if the customer pays the absolute price, then the site is sold to him or her on the spot and all the bids that follow are rejected.

2. Trademysite

Trademysite is a new platform for business owners to sell their sites, but being new doesn’t mean that they don’t know what they’re doing. They are quite professional and the platform is a really excellent one. For now, they are starting with small and medium business sites and, after that success, it will be scaled to feature sites from large businesses as well. They already have customers and contracts and their customers are from a range of different countries like the USA, Australia, Ireland, and Malaysia. Now that the owners have acquired investments from some business tycoons, rest assured that it is a good buy sell website platform.

3. Afternic

Afternic is yet another popular site for selling and buying domains. There are a number of sites that are in partnership with the Afternic and once you list your site there, it will automatically be visible to the other buy sell website platforms that they are in partnership with. They are also offering parking services for the domains they have available.

4. Freemarket

Freemarket is a newly started website by the team who was behind the site freelancers.com. It is a good platform for users to list their websites or to buy some valuable domains. The unique thing about them is that they only charge 5% commission per sale, so you will receive the maximum amount of money in your hands, which is a difference for some other sites that might charge an arm and a leg as a commission fee.

5. Digital Point Forum

Digital Point Forum is another decent platform for flipping websites, as well as domain. Although it is not as recommended by users of other platforms that have been mentioned, if you use it correctly, you can really find some great potential buyers. It is more suited for the webmasters and freelancers looking for more ways to earn online than anything else.

6. Web Hosting Talk

Web Hosting Talk is an online forum type of website, similar to Digital Point Forum, where you can also sell domains and websites, as well as utilize the forum for questions and discussions. In fact, there are many discussions and debates happening on there all the time between webmasters and domain sellers. If you use it correctly, you can also find a customer for your domain in no time at all.

7. Website Broker

Website Broker is an online marketplace for selling and buying domains. There are many visitors on this site, so you can expect a good price for your domain. The domains and websites are auctioned there, and if you decide to flip your website there, you will get a large number of bidders looking to buy from you.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

        Advertising

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
