Before we start, you need to know exactly what Flipping domains is. I think many marketers and unaware of what it really is and therefore fail at it. Simply said, flipping domains is the practice of buying domains to intentionally dispose of it at no less than 12x the initial investment. You buy the domain and try to increase its value either by developing it or by finding a buyer willing to get their hands on the domain at all cost. To increase the value you can develop a website, do SEO or help increase its traffic.
