The typical sources for websites purchased for improvement seem to offer little opportunity. There are resources that have been stripped bare, and any new opportunity is either bid past a newbie's ability to make money or buyers are simply paying too much for the sites. Forums once abundant with opportunity are now filled with opportunists offering sites that are not worth the time spent doing DD to find out they are junk.
Many of those who had made the easy money in years past, have now moved on from flipping sites. Is the process worth your time any longer? How do you find sites to buy and improve?
There are still opportunities and always will be for people that are willing to work. For people that are willing to adapt to change. For people that are willing to continuously learn new techniques. For those creative enough to find opportunity when it has moved. How is this best done? What techniques can be used to find businesses that can be purchased?
The web is filled with old, obsolete techniques. Ideas are still discussed on other sites, and instructions are still sold, for methods that have not worked in years. I would also expect any suggestions on this thread to become obsolete at some point. If you search for ideas on G, use their search tools to limit results to the past year or even the past month.
So how do you find sites to buy that can be improved, that you can monetise, to sell or to keep? What techniques do you use to find opportunity? What is working now?
