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.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
