And I'm not talking about selling them for a few measly dollars! Oh hellll no! I'm talkin' selling them for 20x what they are currently making!

Justin: Joe and I, we have a mortgage business, a mortgage company in the US. And 2006-2007, the mortgage industry wasn’t so great in California and the rest of the US so that actually went out of business, we had to shut it down.

A Little Bit About this Episode:
Be honest: When you first started learning about affiliate marketing, did you just assume that you would have to hold onto these sites forever and always, even if you didn't want to?
In fact, I thought we would have to hold onto our skincare site for freakin' decades, unless we just wanted to let it die and stop making money…which we don't!
However, it turns out that this is not the case! HOLLA! Which is why we were insanely jacked to get the chance to talk shop with Justin Cooke from Empire Flippers —a site where they help you list and sell your website, for a small fee.
I mean, I'm happy wiggling over here just thinking about flipping some of our niche sites, lightening our load, and making some sweet cash in the process!
So whether you're just starting to dip your toes into the affiliate marketing space, or you are a seasoned vet with a full-on network of sites, this episode will teach you what you need to sell your website, how to actually sell it, and the surprising amount of money you could make if you were to in fact flip your site.
Are you jazzed? Hit play and learn the secrets to selling your niche sites!
I have been hmm'ing and haw'ing over how to begin this post. I mean, my first thought was to list of everything I love about affiliate marketing, but thenI realized this post would be excessively long…and we'd never get to the video!
But if I had to narrow it down to one thing I love most it would be….freedom. The freedom to live life how we want to live it, not how we have to live it.
It's having the freedom to work from anywhere we want, at whatever hour we want, and make as much money as we want that has me oh-so-hooked. If that sounds like something you are craving in your life, I think you are going to really dig today's video. Click play to find out what the heck I'm talking about.
