http://www.jumpjet.org - If you are looking for a way to supplement your income with an online business, you will want to consider domain flipping. It is an excellent way to make money online while still being able to keep up with a regular job and any other obligations you may have.

The economy has made everyone's finances a little tighter than they would like, but it has not seriously affected one's ability to make money using the internet to flip domains. It takes a little time and effort to learn how to do it effectively but it's not rocket science.

If you're not sure what domain flipping is exactly, the first thing to understand it's pretty much the same thing as flipping houses. What people do when they flip a house is they buy a piece of real estate for one price and then turn around and sell it for a higher price. Sometimes they fix it up a bit in between and sometimes they just buy smart, knowing they can sell it for more than they paid for it. Flipping domains is essentially the same thing only you're dealing with virtual real estate.

When it comes to domain flipping, you buy a domain name, register it and then either sell it again right away, or sit on it and let it generate income for you. If it is a fairly active website, you can just let it sit there and earn money while you're working your regular job.

You may choose to buy a domain and then build a website that generates income. You may want to add content, pay per click advertising, an opt in email list and any other enhancements you think it needs. Like the house flipper remodels home to attract buyers, you may want to create a site that someone else will be willing to buy from you later at a profit.

If you prefer, you can start from scratch. Purchase a new domain name and build a web site that can be sold down the road. Or you can look for expired domains to buy and then sell. People often lose interest in a site they have been working on and you can pick these up for a decent price. Then either work on them or sell them at an auction to the highest bidder. In almost every case, if you buy right and sell right, you can generate a profit by domain flipping.

What you are able to buy will depend upon your budget. Some websites and domains can be purchased for next to nothing while others have a rather steep price tag. How much money you make really has more to do with the difference between the buy and sell price than how expensive the initial purchase.

The fact that you can buy inexpensive domains to flip makes it relatively easy for a newcomer to get started. Flipping domains doesn't require a huge investment at the beginning. After you have bought and sold a few inexpensive domains for a profit, you can try your hand at something more expensive and generate a larger profit.

Domain flipping can not only be profitable, it can be fun! Be patient as you learn the ins and outs of the process and in time you will be really grateful for the time and effort and the extra income!
