Flipping Websites 04

DigitalPoint

DigitalPoint is one of the largest online marketplaces for buying and selling websites online. It’s kind of a wild wild west of online marketplaces: You’ll find a very wide range of websites for sale, from total junk to hidden gems.

The trick to making money on DigitalPoint is to be able to find the bargain deals, as well as get top dollar for your own websites.

Here’s how to use DigitalPoint. The main section you want to be in is the Buy Sell Trade (Sites) section at: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=52
Buying on DigitalPoint

Start by going all the way down to the bottom and clicking “Prefix.” Click “WTS,” which stands for “Want to Sell.” This will sort all the threads so you’re only seeing listings of websites for sale.Digital-Point-Click-WTS

You’ll then be presented with page after page of websites for sale. This is an example of what the forum might look like:Digital-Point-Auction-Examples

To learn more about any specific site, just click the thread title.

Once you’re in a specific listing, you’ll be presented with the site’s description. Sometimes you’ll have a lot of information, including proof of traffic and earnings data, while at other times listings will have scarcely any information at all.Digital-Point-Description

To make a bid for the site, type the amount you’re willing to pay in the Bid Amount. You can also setup an auto-bid at the same time.Make-a-Bid

If you’d rather just snatch up the website then and there, you can use the “Buy it Now” feature right under the “Sale Data” segment.Sale-Data-BIN

Those are the basic mechanics of buying a site on DigitalPoint. The challenge in DigitalPoint is that you have to go through many, many listings to find a good deal. That said, there are definitely good deals to be found at bargain prices.
