New Service: Niche Sites From Scratch!

New Service: Niche Sites From Scratch!

Many of you have asked if we can create niche sites for you from scratch.

One of the most difficult things when it comes to building niche sites is:

Just getting started.

There are a ton of things to worry about.

  • What if I target the wrong keyword?
  • What if I don’t setup the site correctly?
  • What if I screw something up and get my AdSense account banned?

The first 10 or so niche sites we ever created bombed.  The reason?  I happily thought I’d found some killer keywords, only to find that I was targeting “Broad” instead of “Exact” match key phrases.


We wanted to offer you a low-cost option to purchase brand new niche sites in a industry you’ve selected that have a ton of opportunity.  These will be great sites you can model as you continue to build or expand your online empire.

Introducing: Pre-Sold Niche Sites from EmpireFlippers

This is an opportunity to put our team to work for you.

We’ll be creating niche sites for you in categories you’ve pre-selected.  Unlike our marketplace, the pricing is not based on a multiple of revenue.

You could end up with a few “winners” that would effectively put your price at only 5x monthly revenue.

Or…you could end up with lemons that put you at 40x monthly revenue.

Note: You will need your own hosting + AdSense account for the niche sites.  No claims or guarantees are being made as to the potential earnings on these sites.

All of these sites will be created specifically for you and the process will be completely hands-off after purchase and filling out the order form.  You’ll be able to watch us as we, step-by-step, go through the entire site creation process start to finish.

Here are the details:

  • All sites built from the ground up
  • You’re able to select up to 3 broader categories for these sites
  • KW research and selection by us (with explanation)
  • Higher risk/reward

Your sites will be completed and everything finished within 90 days of purchase.  (We’re shooting for 60 days but don’t want to overpromise here)

We are limiting this test to 200 sites maximum and will only have this offer available until Friday, December 13th.

Select From 3 Different Packages

Basic Package: 5 Pre-Sold niche sites – $897 (Sold Out!!)

Pro Package: 10 Pre-Sold niche sites – $1,597 (Sold Out!!)

Premium Package: 20 Pre-Sold niche sites – $2,697 (Sold Out!!)


Each package includes:

  • 10 additional secondary keywords researched per site (Valued at $20/site)
  • 2 additional pieces of content for each site (Valued at $40/site)
  • 3 additional keyword-researched domains + secondary keyword research completed for you (Valued at $197)

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Select the package you want and make payment.
Step 2: You’ll be redirected to an order form.  Please fill out your details and submit.
Step 3: That’s it! Our team will be in contact within a week to get started on your sites.

Here’s Why This Offer Is For You

Whether you’re new to building niche sites or you’re an experienced website investor, this is an excellent way for you to jump-start the process or expand your portfolio.

+ We’ve built (and sold) 1,000’s of profitable niche sites in the last couple of years.
+ We have keyword selection and the niche site creation process down to a science.
+ You’ll be able to select the categories that interest you the most and have us walk you through the exact process we use to create these sites.
+ You’ll end up with excellent web properties you can model as you continue to build out your online empire.

Help Us Do Some Good

You may remember that in 2011 and 2012, we put together the “Davao Christmas Gift Project.”  We gathered our friends, purchased a ton of gifts, and went around to the poorest areas in Davao City, Philippines giving presents to the kids who probably wouldn’t otherwise get anything for Christmas:

This year, we’re donating 20% of these sales to fund our “Davao Christmas Gift Project” again for 2013.

Due to the fact that 20% of sales will likely bring in more money than that project needs, we’re setting aside $1,000 for the Davao Christmas Project and giving the rest to local charities providing relief efforts to those affected by the horrible typhoon that recently hit the Philippines.

If we hit our goal and sell out all of the sites, we’ll have $1K for the Davao Christmas Project and an additional $5,420 worth of goods to send to the relief efforts.

How cool is that?

If you’re not interested in purchasing any sites but would still like to help out, please click here for the Red Cross in the Philippines.  We can’t take donations directly, but please do let us know if you were able to donate and we’ll give you a special shout and a ton of appreciation from the Philippines!

Again, you can purchase the following packages:

Basic Package: 5 Niche sites from scratch – $897 (Sold Out!!)

Pro Package: 10 Niche sites from scratch – $1,597 (Sold Out!!)

Premium Package: 20 Niche sites from scratch – $2,697 (Sold Out!!)

We look forward to working with you!

  1. Peter says:

    Hi all, I was wondering if there was somebody else disappointed by the performance of the websites delivered through this package… My 5 websites were completed two months ago and get 3 visits in total per week… LOL

  2. Oriol says:

    by the way there’s still one premium package, it could be possible to split with basic and pro package? thanks :)

  3. Oriol says:

    well, I think that i’m late, for when the next round of pre-sold sites? it’s seems exciting!! :)

  4. Harrison says:

    Will you guys offer this again sometime early next year? I’d totally love to do it … but got too much things going on right now.

    • Justin Cooke says:

      The response has been great, Harrison, so it is likely. Joe and I need to get all the sites up and completed before we can consider, though. We’re planning to review late Jan or early Feb!

      • Nathan hibbs says:

        I am in the same boat as Harrison, money is tight now before christmas. But, around tax time, game on! This service is perfect for me. If you offer this service again, I will buy then.

        • Justin Cooke says:

          Sweet, Nathan!

          We wanted to give ourselves plenty of time to deliver before opening this up again. We’re probably looking at early-mid Feb for another release!

      • Harrison says:

        Awesome Justin! That’d be sweet. You’ve got one customer here for sure in January :) hehe

  5. Tung Tran says:

    Wow this looks great… good luck with the sales guys…

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Thanks, Tung!

      Still meaning to try out a few of your SEO packages…hope you have a couple extra for us. :-)

      • Tung Tran says:

        Yeah anytime you need buddy :P

        Wait for next month, I’m going to release a system that makes the ordering process very smoothly & easily.

        You can also track your campaigns (status, ranking, report, etc) in the dashboard.

        Lots of hard work I have to put into it man

  6. Keith Mander says:

    A little confusing why you might be offering this as a service. I guess you’re going for the slice of the market who wants to pay for the production of the site (+ markup) vs. a completed site (+ extra markup)… so potentially cheaper. But on your end, does it still not make more sense to not offer this, and instead just keep on building sites for yourself to flip at a higher markup?

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Hey Keith,

      2 main reasons this makes sense from our perspective:

      1. Front-loaded Cashflow – We’re heading into Dec/Jan which are typically lower revenue months for us. We frontload the cash and kick the can a bit.

      2. Predictable Margins – While some of our sites sell for high-3, low-4 figures, quite a few sell for less. (And some we can’t sell at all) When you add in the losers to our average sale per site, this isn’t too much of a discount.

      I always thought that pushing the risk/reward to the buyers was not something they wanted, but we’ve had so many requests for this we had to test through it. We limited it to 200 over 90 days so that we could continue with our own sites/process and not overburden the team. We’ll evaluate in Feb/Mar and see if this is something we want to offer regularly longer-term.

  7. Clark says:

    I would definitely also be interested in assistance with growing a niche site, since I struggle with what to do once the site is set up. Mainly how best to market it, SEO/SEM and grow the page rank etc…and thereby increase the sites income. So a package that not only helps with that but teaches you how to do this would be a great addition ? Maybe as a separate or bolt on to your package above… I am pretty sure you would get A LOT of interested people taking up an offer like that :)

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Thanks, Clark!

      It’s a really interesting idea – something Joe and I will be discussing, definitely. I want to be careful, though, not to sell sites at 20X and then offer a monthly-recurring product that swallows up their profits. I think it might have to be for higher-earning sites to make sense for both them and us.

  8. Tim says:

    Awesome service idea.

  9. Joe / Justin, awesome stuff! Crazy amazing offer, if I were new to the space, I would be all over this.

    So happy to see you decided to give 20% back to the community. That was a really amazing experience in 2011, and its so awesome to see you guys continuing it, I had to comment.

  10. Ted Mac says:

    What CMS do you use,,Wordpress?

  11. ShotgunSarge says:

    “You’ll be able to select the categories that interest you the most and
    have us walk you through the exact process we use to create these sites.”

    When you say categories how far down the niche tree can we pick? I.E. home and garden vs composting vs red worm composting. And how would we watch the process? Videos or?


    • Thomas Bass says:

      I have the exact same question.


    • Justin Cooke says:

      Lol, I love your example…we used something similar (Industry Vs. Niche) when we were putting this together.

      For your first two categories, you select from a drop-down and they’re much wider. (Home & Garden, Automotive, etc.) For the third category, you’re allowed to write-in the specific industry you want.

      We’ll look at the third category FIRST when we go to select the niches. If it’s just way too niche and we can’t find anything, we’ll revert to the other two.

      • ShotgunSarge says:

        Thanks Justin!

        Looks like I got back here too late and the packages are sold out. When do you expect to try this again?

        • Justin Cooke says:

          The Basic package is sold out, but the PRO and PREMIUM still have 2 available each for now.

          We’ll likely hold off while we work on these orders until February or maybe early March. Will definitely send word out when we open up again.


          • ShotgunSarge says:

            Yeah, but basic was all I could afford. =) Of course maybe you could split a pro or premium into a couple of basics…..

          • Justin Cooke says:

            Hmmm…done! :-)

            I just split a Premium up into a Pro and 2 Basics. Have them set to not allow any purchases over the number listed now…will redirect to the Marketplace if they’re sold out.

          • ShotgunSarge says:


            I just bought a basic. =)

          • Justin Cooke says:


            Be sure to fill out the order form after purchase! Our team will be in contact, but please give them a while…processing quite a few orders.

    • Here are the categories we are offering, but keep in mind there is one additional “write” in category that we will attempt to use.

      Beauty & Personal Care
      Business & Industrial
      Computers & Consumer Electronics
      Family & Community
      Food & Groceries
      Hobbies & Leisure
      Home & Garden
      Jobs & Education
      Law & Government
      News Media & Publications
      Occasions & Gifts
      Real Estate
      Retailers & General Merchandise
      Sports & Fitness
      Travel & Tourism

  12. Extremely helpful to get the ball roiling for a niche site empire. Your knowledge and expertise will no doubt be of great benefit to the clients

    Best of luck with the new services.

  13. says:

    Another great offer guys…always hustling. So with the Basic Package would I give you the 5 domain names and hosting/login info and basically you’d take it from there? Or do you recommend URL’s based on the categories I want to reach?

    • Justin Cooke says:


      Basically, you’ll select two more general categories from a drop down and write-in a third category. From there, we’ll search for keywords/domains that fit into one or more of those categories. You don’t have to worry about picking keywords, domains, etc…we’ll take care of everything there. All you have to do is pick the categories on the order form after payment.

  14. Curtez says:

    Awesome deal guys. Can you tell me if these sites are built on EMD’s? Lastly, will any SEO be performed on the sites?

  15. Steve Griffin says:

    Hi guys,

    Ideally i am looking for high paying kw’s, a decent number of searches, with of course with the lowest competition as possible.

    The off-page SEO is no problem i will take care of that, so is it possible to order a package based on that criteria?


    • Justin Cooke says:

      Absolutely, Steve.

      After payment, you’re sent to an order form where we’ll collect from you the information we need to get started. There’s a “comments” section where you can lay out exactly what you want.

      These sites will be the same as the sites we build for ourselves and we can’t vary the process too much, but we can meet certain requirements. If we they’re too restrictive, we’d have to cancel the order.

  16. Andy G says:

    Funny, I was just going to write you guys an email regarding something like this. I actually have no problem getting the initial site up and running, what I struggle with is the marketing afterwards. I see you don’t offer this service currently, and the marketing is also not included in this new service.

    Have you guys thought about doing something on the flip side? Instead of me buying a completed site from you and then being responsible for it, you could take over a completed site and handle all of the SEO/SEM for it? Obviously this is one of your strengths, as your sites for sale (and your revenue indicates as well) are normally ranking very well for the targeted keywords.

    Thanks! Andy

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Hey Andy,

      That’s a damn good question/idea. We’ve had requests for this privately before and it’s probably something we should look into. We’re basically offering a service that supports buyers in helping them maintain/grow the sites.

      We’ve really been looking for a “recurring” product we can add – maybe there’s something here? Will talk to Joe and see what we can come up with…

  17. Siim Metsla says:

    Hi I could use these sites to backlink each-other and/or my main site (renting real estate specific city) to have better SEO because 1 click for my niche cost me 2-3 euros? Google like this? Like this I see lot of value in this because the same sum of 5 niche sites I spend easily in 20 days in AdWords with 90 clicks with not much results! :D

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Hmmmm…I wasn’t thinking about using the sites this way, but that’s definitely a possibility.

      If this is your plan, just make sure when you order that you put these sites on different hosting accounts and don’t link them in any way to your “money” site.

  18. Sigal says:

    How many pages / posts are in each pre-ordered site?

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Hey Sigal,

      Five content pages are included with each site. (Privacy, Contact Us, and About Us are included as well)

      Additionally, you’re given 10 secondary keywords to target + two secondary pieces of content per each site to add to the sites yourself.
