    I have sold numerous sites and blogs on Flippa over the past two years and yes it is a good way to make money online. However as you have said it is work.

    It is not 1-2-3 easy. It takes work, creativity and quality.

    If you create a high quality site with revenue and traffic and know how to sell the listing, you’re golden.

    However it helps to be guided by someone who knows the industry and the game.
