If you know how to build websites – or you’re willing to learn – you can make some extra money doing this. The sites are small – only one page – and they don’t take long to build. Yet you can sell them for $100 – $300 on sites like Flippa.
Sometimes you might even get more money, but let’s be conservative.
Your first step is to locate some kind of service online that’s basically automated. It might be article writing, clicks, video creation, etc. The possibilities are endless. The criteria you’re looking for is; someone goes to that site, chooses what they want and checks out without having contact with the site owner.
Let’s say you find a site that will write one blog post for $5, 10 blog posts for $40 and 25 blogposts for $95.
Now you buy a url like, BlogPostsWrittenForYou.com or something along those lines.
You then build a one page website that describes the service, what they get, the turn around time, etc. You’re selling the service. Make it look professional but don’t spend years creating it – it shouldn’t take longer than one morning or afternoon.
Put your buttons in place for each of the options, but don’t hook them up to anything. And raise the price of each option. You might make it $10 for 1 post, $75 for 10 posts and $150 for 20 posts.
Then you use Flippa or one of the website selling services online to post your site for sale. Of course you’ve done no SEO or anything else hard. You haven’t driven any traffic. You haven’t made any sales. So you’re going to be talking about the potential of what the site might do once it’s unleashed.
The buyer of the site just needs to hook up the buttons to their PayPal, take payments and customer details and then pass the info along to the real service to do the fulfillment.
The site buyer keeps the difference between what they collect and what they pay for the services, much like a store keeps the mark up on products that they sell.
You could do one or two of these a day for a nice side income.
Just be sure to be honest – it’s a new site with tons of potential, not a track record. That’s why you’re only going to get $100 to $300 or so per sale, not thousands of dollars. But you didn’t put much time into it, so it’s still a good return on your own investment.
And once you get good at this, you could outsource the website creation, too.
