Hello and welcome to another Flippa Friday. Okay, I know what you’re going to say, “Hey Morgan, it’s Saturday!” I know, I’m a day late but yesterday was a particularly busy day so I didn’t get a chance to get this post out. So I’m still excited to bring you Flippa Friday, on Saturday!
Yesterday SamuraiSalesVideos.com, a domain name that was registered in January of this year sold for $32,000! That’s right, a domain registered less than 6-months ago that would have been impossible to sell as the domain itself has sold for $32,000 after the owner built a business on the name.
The people who bought this name turned it into a real online business generating $4,500 in profit in a short period of time. What I really like about this sale is that they aren’t doing it themselves, they’ve built a business and have an outsourced team that runs the business. There were a total of 17 bids placed on this auction and 13 total bidders.
I think this really exemplifies that you can use a domain name as a starting-point for a business and then, if you can build-up some serious traffic and revenue, that business can be sold and you can start the process all over again. While most people wouldn’t dream of selling a site that makes $4,500/month for only $32,000 the guy who sold this has had a lot of success on Flippa and is much more into building businesses and Flipping them for a quick profit.
Along with this sale below are a few of the other notable sales on Flippa this week:
- BabyPictureMaker.com – $11,700
- MineCraftAccounts.com – $25,250
- PrizeFusion.com – $14,500

- AllBlogTools.com – $25,000
I hope you are all having a great start to your weekend. We are heading up to Santa Barbara for the weekend for some wine tasting and R&R in an awesome B&B nestled in beautiful Santa Barbara wine country!
