Well, it’s a new month, and I must say that I always feel more creative at the start of a month that I do at the end of one. With the start of this month comes a new idea, and an opportunity for all of the readers here to make some money, while learning more about flipping blogs.
I’m glad we had such a good time flipping our first blogs last month, but this month it’s on to bigger and better things. So I propose…
We all team up and flip ONE blog and split the profits. It sounds a bit crazy I realize, but, it’s less work, and more money for all that are involved. You know what they say - “Many hands make light work”.
So here is the basic idea. We pool our resources, buy an aged domain that’s past the sandbox period, and we all team up to produce content on a new blog. Let’s say that 10 of you decide to take part, and we each post twice a week, that’s 20 new posts a week, or 80 a month. Far more than most new blogs! Content is key, as they say, and we’ll definitely have that part of it worked out. SEO should be pretty easy, lots of content to get indexed, and even more of us to provide/build links.
So, we each write a couple of times per week, and then we stumble and/or digg all of the posts to provide instant traffic. We sell the blog after set amount of time (which will be agreed upon by all parties), and split the proceeds evenly. A blog like this could reasonably expect to fetch 3-4k after only 60 days. If we have 10 people taking part, then that means we each make $300 - $400 for contributing a couple of diggs, a couple of stumbles, and roughly 16 posts (2 a week x 8 weeks).
Of course, this is extremely experimental, and it hasn’t been done before to my knowledge, so it may not be that profitable, but we can all make a bit of money from it.
If you want to take part, sound off in the comment section, and feel free to leave any ideas you may have. I’m also interested to know what topic you think would be the most profitable. We can do anything from a news site, to a simple niche blog, but either way it’ll quickly become quite large with our posting frequency. You guys decide. Who’s in?
