You are on this list because you either purchased a site from me via various brokerages (Flippa, Empire Flippers, etc.), met on Facebook groups, or joined via my brokerage, Inventige.
In the past, I’ve sent out website deal-flow valued at anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000 selling at reasonable multiples. I will continue to send out deal-flow through this email list as I get them in. That’s not changing…
What is changing is that I will be compiling quality case studies on projects I’ve been working on silently. I've been anonymously submitting my case studies in Reddit’s /r/juststart. But that alienates all of you from reading since you may not be aware.
These are some of the projects I currently have going on which I will document via this newsletter:
Dating/Relationship - DR 43 expired domain, purchased for $30,000, was earning $1,000 and grew it to $9,000-$11,000/mo. Sold it off to an investor which we now co-manage with equity/profit split.
Wordpress - DR 58 expired domain, purchased 2 months as just a domain for $4,000. Building this one up.
Outdoor - DR 49 website around since 2010. Purchased 3 months ago for ~$20,000. Currently working to grow this one to $10,000 per month.
Who Am I?
Great question… I am not a full-time SEO specialist. This is not my career. I’ve been working at tech startups as technical lead (i.e., head of research, director level) positions.
In 2008, I stumbled upon SEO and built up my first website in the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) niche. I worked on it for 2 years while in college and was approached by an Australia company for a buyout. I sold it for $25,000 via Escrow in 2010! That was game-changing for me as a 20-year-old student.
Fast forward more than a decade, I've been buying, growing, and selling sites as a side-business with many 6-figure exits. I am a Super Seller on Flippa (see my profile here)… scratch that, I was a Super Seller until I had a 1-year legal battle for copyright issues on a site I sold. Interesting story for another time…
I’ve seen this industry grow, multiples rise, brokerages start-up and dominate the space (i.e., Empire Flippers). Was one of the early buyers of sites on EF’s platforms in 2015, which turned into an amazing case study:
I am not a so-called guru and would hate to be one. Just a motivated website investor who loves this game!
I do not like to publicize my SEO business and that’s why I prefer email so I can connect with you in your inbox rather than blogging publicly.
Why Am I Doing This?
I already document each of my sites’ progress on a monthly basis. Thus, not any extra effort for me.
I may sporadically add affiliate links to various plugins, themes, services, etc that I use. It’s a win-win for you. You get to see me try different things and give you the data so you can make a decision for yourself. Think of this as a monetary way to keep me motivated.
I won’t be bombarding you with an email autoresponder series sending you an email every 2 days at 9 AM… nope. Expect an email from me a couple of times a month with updates to my current websites I am building up, and any website deal flow.
