Sells for $10,000 on Flippa

Popular website sales marketplace Flippa closed a nice five-figure sale a little over a week ago with selling for $10,000. While the domain name and product might sound a bit ridiculous, it’s a real niche and a real problem that people have. I don’t personally suffer from this problem…but I know a number of people who do. You probably do too, you know those people who seem to always be sweating?

Yes it’s a real problem, and like most somewhat embarrassing problems, people tend to like to search-out solutions online. The site owner has written an eBook called “Beat your sweating Demons” that sell for $37 a copy. The eBook itself also has affiliate links in it so revenue comes from both eBook sales and affiliate sales through links clicked by readers.

Sure, we all know there’s money in credit, debt, insurance, etc. however it can be all too easy to forget that there are literally thousands of niches just like this that you’d probably never think of.

The site gets 20,000 unique visitors/month and brings in $559/month making this a sale at around 17x monthly revenue. The auction itself brought in 18 bids from 10 different bidders.

As a domain name itself I’d find it hard to believe this would even fetch $10 but with a real business on it the seller walks away $10,000 richer and the buyer gets to enjoy over $500/month of passive income.

    Nice sale indeed!. Now if only someone could tell me where I can hire someone to build me quality links, then maybe I can dream of a sale like this one day!.

    Great example of a developed domain name with proven revenue. Now think about how much the ebook owner is making! I bet they have a number of affiliates successfully pushing there products.

    Without realizing Morgan’s posts on flippa are telling us one thing only: domain names are irrelevant. Just use some slightly related keyword on some tld and develop it.
