Howdy from Sydney Australia,
Just want to note the quality of content here for a free forum, you only really find content this good in a paid and motivated community. (hats off to Clinton)
Very interested in buying and selling (or holding) virtual property.
I make a nice and tidy 6 figure income offline world, consulting with b&M's with their online marketing.
My only real dabble in sites has been for clients. My biggest success would be purchasing a site from a business that had gone broke for my biggest client, that within a few days and a few tweaks was number one for their main keyword with 29million competing pages, and to top it off they made their money back within 2 weeks....cheeky
However I see the massive potential in the online web space.
I see the biggest money to be made in the upper markets selling networks of sites to large corporates.
I know this is a possibility because I run a national campaign here in Australia where we have adopted the multiple site network model to uber success.
My old man is a business valuer and also property developer so I garner most of my idea's and strategies of his offline real estate knowledge combined with my technical skills to develop the assets.
Anyway I am keen to learn and implement the right strategies.
