He flipped his one year old blog with just a few high quality contents on Flippa for the whooping price of $3,300 ( convert that to Naira and see how much that is)

You can read his inspiring story here

Alexis Schroeder, the owner of FITnancials, a blog committed to serving women who desire to achieve financial freedom and improve their online business is another great flipper.

In her words,

“In 2017 I made over $30K with just a few hours per week and I did it flipping blogs.”

Yes! she made over $30K in 2017 and over $100K lifetime earnings in blog flipping. 

The list of top bloggers making thousands of dollars with blog flipping goes on and on

So this answers the question. There is no limit to how much you can make from blog flipping. The better you get at it, the more money you can make.

Let’s proceed


buy or build blog to sell

Blog flipping is simply the art of building or buying of blog at a low price, improving it and selling it at a higher price.

Apparently, this principle of flipping finds its origin in the property industry where investors buy a property such as a house, add value to it by way of renovation, and then sell it at a higher price

A clearer look at the above definition tells us that there are two different ways we can approach blog flipping

  • You can either build a new Blog from the scratch, and flip it after developing it to a certain standard for a few months or even years
  • Alternatively, you can buy an existing blog and flip it for a higher price after adding value to it for given period of time.

Let’s take it one after the other for easier clarification

Blog Flipping By Creating a Blog From Scratch

This is usually a beginners approach. You practically do everything yourself from picking your niche, to choosing a domain name, to hosting, to writing your posts and ultimately promoting the blog.

The downside to this approach is that it takes more time. However, it gives you a much more control on determining the overall direction of your blog.

Your biggest investment here is your time and brain work


If you are approaching blog flipping from this angle. Here are the recommended steps to follow

1.Selecting Your Niche

This is the foundation of every blog. The blog niche you pick can either make or mar your blogging journey. It is important you always pick a niche that is evergreen and also have a large market. Examples of such niches include Food, Beauty and fashion, health, physical fitness, finance etc.

This will help in building a reputation to your blog in the shortest period of time.

Researching your niche is something you need to take seriously seeing that blog flipping is not a kind of investment you spend years to see your profit. Some niches can be grown faster than others. Also some are in higher demand than others. You want to make sure your pick a niche that is both easier to develop and also in hot demand

2. Creating Your Contents

After hosting your blog with your preferred host. The real business begins. You begin to add high quality contents to your blog while adopting all the white hat seo practices that there are such as link building, guest posting etc.

You may research on the contents that perform most for any topic or the most shared posts from your competitors using special online tools such as buzzsumo. This will help you in creating quality contents that will combat your competitors in the search engines.

Bear in mind that the emphasis here is in quality contents and not quantity contents. Quality content remains the king.

With just 10 high quality contents.You can flip your blog for a mouthwatering amount of money.

3. Flipping It

Now that the blog has highly optimized posts, you proceed to monetize it through Google Adsense or Affiliate marketing and when it starts bringing cash no matter how little. It’s time to flip it

Bear in mind that most times, the longer you leave it, the higher the price.This is because the blogs earning will increase, the domain authority will also increase)

Blog Flipping By Buying An Existing Blog

This concept lies in buying an existing blog, working on it to make it better and bigger and selling it at a higher price

In this approach, the biggest investment is the cost (money). While some may consider this cost as a downside in this method. It’s really not a downside since it gives you more time to focus on other online ventures that will bring in more cash.

Granted, it is an approach that is obviously not too cool or suitable with beginners who are on tight budget.

How Do You Find Blogs For Sale?

There are many market places where you can get listed blogs to buy. Below are few of them

  • Flippa
  • sedo
  • afternic
  • free market
  • web hosting talk
  • website broker

Among all of the above outlined market places, Flippa is the biggest as it attract the highest audience and offers great tools to aid your auction. Since its 2009 launch, Flippa has made more that $140 million sales. So it should be your best option if you asked me

However, what some smart flippers do is to go online and search for idle blogs in their chosen niche that have long been updated. Then they send a private message to the owner proposing to buy it off. This they do because blogs bought from this method is usually cheaper than those already listed in the marketplaces

Nonetheless, here are few things to look out for when buying a blog

  • The blog should have daily visitors. It may just be a few but not less than 300 visiting everyday
  • The blog should be free of any penalty from Google, Panda and Penguin.
  • X-ray the Google Analytics report of the blog and find out the countries where the visitors are coming from
  • Check how much the blog is earning per month in other not to over price it. For example, a blog that’s is earning around 10,000 Naira monthly, you can buy anything from 120,000 Naira and below

The above tips should help you buy a blog that wont become a thorn in your flesh. After the purchase, you can take some time and work on the design of the blog by making it look better and different.

Then you begin to publish quality contents on a regular basis which you can write yourself or hire writers to write for you while you carry out massive promotion of the blog. This is you adding more value.

After seeing an increase in the daily visitors of the blog and perhaps growth in the earnings. You can now decide to sell the blog at a higher price.

You repeat the process and keep earning. This is blog flipping


As the days roll by, we keep discovering several ways to make legitimate money online to increase our earnings. Blog flipping is not really a new kid on the block but a hidden one.

Apparently, anyone can do blog flipping or become a blog flipper since it has a low barrier to entry

If and only if you’re determined to commit just a little capital, and moderate amount of time. Blog flipping can fetch you some serious money.

Become a flipper today and make a good live out of it.
