Let’s not waste any time and simply jump right into it-
For anybody looking to jump directly into just buying an already proven to work business right out the box this one’s for you. Flippa is a website that allows you to buy and sell websites on a peer 2 peer basis with the flippa faculties acting as a mediator so your time and money is protected. There are a ton of data points all laid out for you to browse which makes picking and choosing the right site for you at the right price point a breeze.

Just a quick note before you run off and begin looking for websites to buy, always factor in your own due diligence. Perform backlink audits on any site you’re seriously considering to be sure it’s clean of any potential foul play. Ask to see proof of revenue and by all means you should always be looking directly at the website itself before buying anything. Search it on Google for reviews or any mention of it within the press, find out what it’s reputation is by hunting around a while and then if it all checks out you can feel more at ease about buying.
2 CJ Affiliate
Formerly known as Commision Junction, CJ Affiliate is a great place to find product owners in need of affiliate marketers who are happy to make sales in exchange for a commission. They work on a number of different sales types such as per phone call, per lead, website visit and more.

Up next is Ahrefs which is very similar to SEMRush with a few modifications and a stronger emphasis on backlinks opposed to on page SEO. These tools can be used individual of each other but if you were to combine them, should that be within your means to do so then you’d have a very powerful toolset at your fingertips.
Thanks to their in-depth insights on both new and pre existing backlinks, links which go out to broken sites, outdated sites and just all around unfavorable places can all be addressed and monitored in this one central place. They have some great options to offer you as well such as:
