If you have the talent in writing, then utilize it. Chose your most enthusiastic topic and start to write original and useful articles about it.

A domain name is the name you type in the URL address to access a particular website. The domain name of this site is BusinessAccent.com, which I acquire for 10US dollar for its first year of registration in Namecheap. Domain names are like virtual properties (equivalent to real estate) that possess market values depending on the type of the domain name. As a domainer, I acquire domain names for sale and sell them at higher prices. If I buy a 10$ domain name and sell them for 40$, then that’s a 30$ profit I have got. And if I made that kind of sale for 10 domains a month, then that’s a 300$ monthly profit. However, this kind of work requires a lot of brainstorming, from choosing and buying a domain name to selling it to the right buyers and users.

3. Website Flipping
Website Flipping is similar to domaining, the only difference is that you sell the domain when it’s already developed. As I said previously, I have bought my domain name for 10$ and because it’s already in its two years of registration, I already paid 20$ for it. Since I have been using the domain in blogging for almost eight months now from the time I pulled it from my domain stock portfolio, it already appraised its value. As of today, it has already been appraised by several appraisers for a four digit (x,xxx) value. If I will sell it now, then I can already earn a favorable profit. Many people in the website pliffing world, buy a lot of domains and developed them for an average of one month period. Then they sell them to buyers at around $300 – $500. Imagine if their only cost for one domain are the domain’s one year registration fee of $10 and one month web hosting fee ($10 – $20) – that’s a lot of bucks!
The following articles will give you additional light in the art of website flipping.
