I like building websites and that’s what I’ve been doing for the past few years. However, lately I’ve been wondering whether building is the best strategy especially when the website buying/selling market is growing so fast and is more and more vibrant. It takes a lot of time and money to create a good website and most of the time it’s not the next big thing I’m pursuing, it’s the proven models that have been done and tried. Therefore, it is likely that the kind of a website I’m building is somewhere on sale. In fact, it’s more than likely since I use Flippa to find proven website ideas.
They’re not new, you’ve probably heard about them and their virtues. You get 100% commissions of the front-end product sale straight to your PayPal account. What could be better? But things aren’t so pretty if you consider what else you get with these programs.
Now, let me make this clear, I’ve nothing against the concept of instant commissions, but there are serious considerations to make and risks to evaluate before taking up on offers like this. It’s not all so great as your next “guru” claims to be.

Mastering a website’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy is no mean feat. With Google, and many other search engines, regularly changing their search algorithms, establishing the right keywords to attract the right netizens can seem near on impossible.

There seem to be two distinct groups when it comes to senior users in the computer world. There are those baby boomers who love learning all the newest technology available to them and then there is the group that just doesn’t want to learn anything new at all. This second group usually consists of people who were not very good students in school, or had problems reading. Very few people understand that not being able to read or write proficiently can cause a great deal of anxiety for seniors who are too embarrassed to admit they may not read very well. Although this may seem like a minority of people with this problem, it might be a good idea to gently find out if this is one reason your older parent or friend may not want to learn how to use the internet. There are many classes in senior centers that might address this very issue.
