Who’s behind The Website Flip?
My name is Mushfiq based out of Chicago, IL. My team and I buy, grow, and flip content-based websites.
In 2008, I stumbled upon SEO and built up my first website in the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) niche. I worked on it for 2 years while in college and was approached for a buyout by now Slashdot Media. I sold it for $25,000 via Escrow in 2010! That was game-changing for me as a 20-year-old student.
Fast forward more than a decade, I’ve been buying, growing, and selling sites as a side-business with many 6-figure exits. I was a Super Seller on Flippa’s platform. Check out my profile here.
I’ve seen this industry grow, multiples rise, brokerages start-up and dominate the space (i.e., Empire Flippers). I was one of the early buyers of sites on Empire Flipper’s platforms in 2015, which turned into an amazing case study:
I am not a so-called guru and would hate to be one. I am a motivated website investor and operator who loves this game!
Since 2008, I’ve built a world-class team of growth experts that help operate and grow my portfolio sites. I actively buy and sell websites in my portfolio to manage risk and to keep things interesting.
Join my team and I in this journey of website flipping!
