1. 5 Steps Domain Flipping – Flip New Domains For Instant Profit

If you are eager to get started and don’t have time for long winding introductions then this is the book for you. At only 34 pages, it is definitely a quick read. In fact, some of the reviewers have confessed to having read the book in under 30 minutes! Written by R.R. Flipper an Internet marketing enthusiast with over 12 years experience in e-commerce, website and domain flipping, advertising and search engine marketing, this book is bound to give you a quick insight into the business.

A sneak peek into this Kindle Book shows that it is bound to deliver on what the author promises; a quick yet effective method to domain flipping, in five straightforward steps. These are; Choosing a City, Choosing a Business to target, Find and Register Domain, Create a Small 1-Page Website and Email Prospects.

Tackling Step 1, R.R. Flipper’s approach and advice is that you choose a medium-sized City with a population of 50,000 to 200,000 as the larger cities tend to have more competition. In Step 2, the author promises to show you exactly what type of businesses you should target and how you will find them and in Step 3, offers to show you how to find and register domain names.

For the friendly price of US$2.99, 55% 5-star rating from reviewers and unlimited simultaneous device usage that the kindle book comes with, this should be a worthwhile purchase and read.

2. Domain name flipping: the complete guide and tricks to selling your first domain in less than 48 hours

This book available in both Kindle and Paperback Editions has got to have the most tempting title in this article’s lineup. In his 200-page Kindle and 234-page Paperback Editions, Author Gregory McGuire testifies to having sold his first domain within four days but reckons that you don’t have to wait that long.

Published in October 2019, this domain name reselling guide promises to “expose you to the most current information associated with the practice of domain flipping, including an orientation on two very helpful Google tools that many professional domainers are still not aware of.”

Gregory offers some candid advice on what every new domain investor needs and doesn’t need. Daily access to a computer, Patience, Money (even US$100 is sufficient to start), More patience and A couple of hours every day to work on domain names are some of the things you’ll need. On the other hand, An ego, Prior experience of computers or domain names, Coding experience (he tackles how to use WordPress) and Staff are some of the things he says you don’t need.

A preview of the book also offers some resources for further reading on a daily or weekly basis. Some of these include NamePros.com, DNForum, DomainSherpa.com, Domaining.com and DNJournal.

3. Flipping Domains: An exciting way to invest in digital assets

This has got to be the newest (Published February 12, 2020) and at 24 pages the shortest of books in today’s review. Authored by Derick Downs, the book offers to be “a beginners’ educational book to help learn the art of domain flipping.” Since domain flipping is the gist of our review, domain brokers are the men and women that have earned a name out of making it a business. Derick Downs according to his Amazon profile is a “seasoned domain broker.” So, who better to learn from than one who has worked his way up to achieve seasoned status?

Wikipedia on the other hand lists Derrick as “a San Diego-based entrepreneur notable for creating a large number of websites and business ventures, including Pokeymongo, various novelty websites such as Ship Your Glitter and Drop A Deuce, and advertising service Follow Per Click.

Whereas a sneak peek into his book does not give much away, in chapter one Derrick states that the book will discuss his digital hoarding disorder as well as revenue that anybody can generate from websites and domain names. It currently has only one 5-star rating on Amazon. Derrick is also the founder of Downs Agency and lists domain brokering as one of the things he specializes in, an additional indicator of his interest in the business.

4. Domain Name Flipping: How to Buy & Sell Websites to Make Fast Cash Online

Let’s face it, many of us might not be entirely satisfied with our 9 to 5 jobs. However, just by going back home for some well-deserved rest or using the weekend to engage in your hobby will often leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated to tackle the next day’s or week’s tasks at work. Now imagine if your hobby or method of unwinding was by flipping domain names…

This where Kyle Sarasota’s 29-page book on domain flipping comes in, with the promise of showing you “a Foolproof Way to Start an Internet Business While Working Part-Time.” His book, he says, will teach you how to properly search for a profitable domain name/website, the exact criteria to follow and how to evaluate a website prior to buying it.

However, buying is only half the equation of flipping. Therefore, Kyle in his book offers to teach you five ways to sell your website fast, as well as what to do once you have a buyer ready to grab your website. A sneak peek into the book shows that the author is a stickler for focus. His advice is that you have to focus on just one business idea and then give it your best when it comes to business execution. That way, he says, you will be able to stay in the game and not be fazed by those who are always on the lookout for “the next big thing.”

5. Domain Flipping Formula 2017: How to Turn $9 into $100

If you disregard the year in the book title, this is by itself a very enticing prospect to read. The rule for any business to remain afloat is to make profit. Now imagine if your profit was nine times what you paid for the item… that would surely grab my curiosity. I hope it grabs yours too.

Timothy Spears’ “Domain Flipping Formula 2017” is a 63-page book made up of 16 chapters touching on the basics such as different types of domain name extensions and different domain names in chapters three and four respectively. Chapter Nine touches on how you can choose domains that you can flip and make a profit from Chapter ten goes on to share three steps you can take to buy and flip expired domain names.

The book will also tip you on how to win a domain name auction and the value in aged domains in Chapters eleven and twelve respectively. Timothy also shares in the sneak peek that once you have your system up and running, you’d require about an hour or two a day to keep the cash flowing in. “Many of my partners, students and friends are earning $500 – $2,500 per week from flipping low cost domain names” he says in the book.

The best time to start

Is now. All the above mentioned books make reference to free resources you can use to get started on your domain flipping business, the only cost being the domain name’s purchase price. I hope that whatever book you choose to purchase will provide you with the tips you need to get rolling and earning that extra, if not full-time income. Remember, just like with any other business, it will take time to get comfortable with the process and to start earning a profit. Your patience and determination to succeed will be of utmost importance. I hope you have enjoyed reading this review. Do drop me a comment below on what your thoughts are and I’ll be sure to respond. Happy Domain Flipping!

  1. Well thank you for listing the suitable books related to domain selling business. This is something that intrigue me enough, because I have several unused domains. Some of them have been used for my past blog names, but it’s inactive now. By the way, do they available as digital ebook? Any book that should be newbie friendly or I can just choose one among them? Thanks

    • Hi and thanks for dropping by Alexander. Yes. All the books listed in this review are newbie friendly so any choice you make should be fine, depending on your preference (short/long read). Once you make a choice, this should give you a few ideas on how you can best exploit the potential your unused domains. All the best!

  2. Thank you so much for pointing us to such an article. The main content of the article is how to buy and sell books from the domain. Where you refer to five domains. 

    Nowadays in the Internet age we get a lot of things to ask for. One of the objects is the book. Many people love to read books If it gets in the hands again. An important one in everyone’s daily life books. With your domain we can easily buy books at home. Each of the five domains you mentioned in your article is very familiar.

    Everybody loves to read books, and if we have such a beautiful way to buy books, we have them. I have bought books from these domains and would encourage others to buy.

    • Thanks for dropping by Henderson. I’m glad that Part 2 has inspired you to go and check out Part 1 as well. This particularly focused on flipping while the former touched more on the whole business of domaining, including post-purchase options like developing for later sale. Hope you enjoy reading that one too.

  5. Wow! Thank you for sharing those great and well written reviews on the subject. I have overlooked this venue in the past even if it is something I thought could be very lucrative. I first started to think about this when I was looking through site ranking an authority of certain domains name I wanted to buy but, were already taken. When I realized that some domains are being left aside, perhaps because of a lack of will from the owner, but were still generating a decent amount of traffic to begin with, I thought that If I would have been more savvy on the subject I could have done something about it. I always wish I could just buy an interesting and sought at ”parked” website and turn it into gold!

    • Hi Olivier, thanks for sharing your experience. We all go through those moments of pondering and when we do not act, something else takes the place of that thought. I’m glad that this review reawakened you to the possibility of following up on the subject again and I wish you all the best. If any of these five do not meet your criteria, may I propose reading Part 1 of my similarly titled article. Jerome Robertson’s book may offer you some tips on domain development.

  6. A few years ago, my husband tried to invest in the domain, but failed without experience. I think he would like your blog very much. Though he rarely invests in the domain, he still pays attention to this market. Recently, because of the covid-19, we almost stay at home except for work. I want to buy the book, Domain name flipping for him. He can spend this time reading this book.

    Thanks.

  7. Hey Mark! The idea of making a business out of buying and selling domains is something that is still rolling on my mind after two years when I first saw a post on this type of business.

    However, the book from Anthony McGuire on selling your first domain in less than 48 hours sounds too good to be true, and is something I will definitely look forward to read, before I decide to buy and most importantly, sell one. This looks like the kind of book I’ve been looking for on selling domains.

  9. This is really interesting but I am still a little uncertain on what domain flipping actually is?  Is this buying domains off of other people and then taking their domain website, build out there website, and then resell it to the customer.  Because if so then this seems like a great business opportunity that could help  a lot of people with their finances.  The books you listed look incredibly helpful in doing this properly and successfully.  Thank you for the information.

    Reply
    • You are most welcome and thanks too for your comment Eric. Back to your question, I’d say the answer is yes. Although flipping is commonly associated with short-term possession and then selling to the next best prospect for a profit, some buyers have been known to buy domain names, and if there’s a website associated, polishing up its content and design, driving more traffic to it and then selling it thereafter. It’s definitely a great business once you discover your winning formula.

  10. I would like to sell one of my domain name and I have been searching for some information on that. So, I am pretty glad I found your blog post. From your review, I am more interested in ‘how to trust $9 into$100’. I guess the choice of the title was an effective one.

  11. This is great, as I didn’t realize that there were so many books about how to make money with domain names. I’ve seen what I thought would be some good ones (domains) for sale for next to nothing, but didn’t end up buying them because I wasn’t sure of what to expect next or what to do with them. 

    These books and guidance are exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks so much for the reviews & recommendations!!

  13. This is a practical, relevant and  timely page given the resurgence of interest to work from home. Particularly in the face of the current global crisis.  The blog really helps a niche and helps to answer a question I have rhetorically asked myself in the past. The 5 steps to D … F…book immediately struck me as helpful. And it’s a highly accessible price. Ditto Domain name flipping..how much is that one? You have really created an interesting web site here that serves a niche that I suspect has few competitors.  I wish you well, as its very helpful not just to me but to many others.

The current era though unprecedented has opened our eyes to a whole new host of possibilities. I’m glad that your eye was caught by not only one but two of the books. Domain name flipping goes for USD 30 and 43.13 for the Kindle and Paperback editions respectively. Clicking on the image will lead you straight to the sales page.

  15. A while ago I was discussing busines with a friend and he suggested this domain flipping idea, I considered it for a while but had to throw it away because I didn’t really have the know how it how to get it all started. I believe the best investment you could ever make is in yourself, in knowledge and experience and buying this for such small prices from people that have actually done it is such a perfect opportunity. I will try the one by Gregory McGuire first and see how it goes. Thank you.
