Wanna know how to flip money? I was recently searching online for the best way to flip $1,000 or how to double $1000 fast.
Most of the sites I went to outlined methods that were very boring and slow.
None of them focused on how to flip money fast.
Most of them recommended putting the money in an IRA and adding a little to it every month and watching to grow slowly over the next 30 years… nonsense, there are faster ways.
Imagine you found a better and faster way to invest. A strategy that allowed you to double your money over and over simply because you sought out the answer.
The strategies below will do just that as you move toward fiscal freedom.
They will also work for investing 5k, 10k, 20k, 25k, or even 50k.
In fact, the more capital you have the faster you can go and more money flipping you can do.
I’m not against traditional investing and I do put money aside for retirement every month.
But the thought of throwing every little bit I get into a retirement account bores me.
For one thing, it takes the fun out of the game.
Secondly, while some would argue slow investing is the best way to grow your money over the long run, it doesn’t happen quickly, it doesn’t help you now, and it isn’t exciting.
It also doesn’t allow you to leverage your drive, motivation, and sweat equity into making something happen.
It also may very well not be the best way to grow your money over time.
This article is rather long and epic.
But if you’re serious about flipping your cash and stick with me, I’m going to show you what has actually worked for me over the past 20 years experimenting.
That way your money will hopefully double or triple, instead of becoming a life lesson.
Also, these strategies don’t take 30 years to implement.
There can be a case made that if you take your money and add to it your hard work, you can certainly grow the money faster.
So what do you do when you’ve set up a retirement account but you’ve gotten to the point where you want to make something happen and are willing leverage your time and energy to make it go faster?
Below are the best ways I can think of to flip your money and double $1,000 (or whatever amount you have).
Most of these ideas will work on some level with any amount of money.
Depending on your knowledge, experience, and skills, they could be considered higher risk than traditional investing, but they also offer higher return on investment and the possibility of much faster returns!
I personally feel they are less risky than traditional investing because you’re in the drivers seat and you can make decisions, move quickly, work hard, and even gain experience and knowledge which will lead to increased gains.Investing in yourself is less risky than throwing money at an idea because at the end of the day, you now have skills that can make a #profit.

If you’re still reading, I know 1 thing about you for sure. You’re an action taker, you’re not afraid of going out and looking for an answer to solve a problem.
So let’s have a go and see which one of these make sense to you or which one can be implemented where you are right now in your current situation.
#1) Invest in a tool that taps into your skill set.
For example, for $1000 I could buy a tile saw and other necessary tools for that type of job. Then I could lay tile for some people who don’t have the knowledge, ability, or just aren’t willing to do it themselves.
I happen to be good at laying floor tile and combined with my time and energy, it wouldn’t take long to turn the $1000 into $2000. The same thing could be true for lawn care and other labor intensive activities.
So what if you don’t have a skill you think you can capitalize on?
First, I would suggest that you are probably wrong. In fact, without even knowing you I would put money on the fact that you’re wrong. Everyone has marketable skills and experiences.
But then I would say that the best thing about the world we currently live in is that you can learn ANYTHING you want, mostly for free by going online.
There are videos, tutorials, articles like this one, etc. Pick something you’re interested in and go learn how to do it effectively and efficiently.
#2) Purchase a white label product or participate in affiliate marketing.
White label is the term used for a product that somebody else has made but is willing to basically lease, rent, or sell to somebody under their brand. For example, there are some white label coupon websites out there.
You pay a fee and the company will help you set up a website that offers coupons to local advertisers (much like the traditional coupon books).
Then you would simply invest your time in selling monthly packages to local companies and driving traffic to the website. If you do it correctly and are successful it could grow into a sizable monthly income.
Other forms of white label products are ebooks, educational programs, and software as a service or SAAS.
Software as a service is one of the most profitable but it will probably cost you more on the front end and you’d need to search for a product that is really good if you can’t create it yourself.
The great thing about software as a service is that it offers recurring revenue (aka passive income). If you are offering a web based application that users get value from and use daily, the chances they will cancel are very slim.
Another thing that falls into the same category is affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is when you sign up with a company as an affiliate and receive commission based on actual sales. It’s like turning your website into an online salesperson that works twenty four hours a day seven days a week.
There are a variety of programs out there. Amazon even has an affiliate program. The commissions aren’t very high with Amazon, under 10% on sales (there are varying levels) but the more you sell the more you make.
If you have a site focused on expensive products, you could do well with Amazon and your only cost is really the little bit of time and money you put into building out your website or YouTube reviews.
An example of this type of cost would be if you used aweber.com, which is an email software for managing email lists.
However, I really like the Amazon model for 2 reasons:
- If somebody links out to your product and buys something completely different within 24 hours, you still get a commission on whatever they buy.
- Amazon is trusted. Period. No need to oversell, just embed the link where you want.
For example, let’s say your in the market for a high end watch. You can get this Vincero one from my affiliate link. Now, the cool thing is if you click on that link it takes you to my Amazon affiliate site.
Perhaps you decide you don’t think you want it… but you end up buying another piece of jewelry because Amazon is a master at recommending products you want.
As long as you do it within 24 hours of clicking on my link, I’ll get an affiliate commission.
Now imagine this blog post was actually about watches… I would easily get more sales.
That being said, this one page (which has nothing to do with watches) currently gets about 3000 visits a month. What I know about the people visiting is that more than likely they have at least $1000 dollars they are trying to flip.
Some of you visiting just happen to have been thinking about getting a watch.
You’ll read this, look at the work of investing your $1000 and say to yourself, “awww, screw it, I’m getting a watch” and you’ll order one off of amazon after visiting my link.
Amazon isn’t the only affiliate game in town though. They have the most brand recognition and trust, but one of the lowest affiliate payouts. You really want to strive to have affiliate products that help your ideal customer or visitor to your site.
Some places you can go to find a variety of affiliate products are clickbank.com (probably the best known), affiliate.com, and jvzoo.com.
For more options, just type “sites like clickbank” into Google and you’ll find some articles that discuss different options. Some are geared toward specific types of products and others are very general in nature.
It’s important you know the product you’re promoting has value and isn’t crap.
There’s a crapton of junk out there being sold by internet marketing tricksters.
These people are the online versions of snake oil salesmen, which is what you don’t want to become.#Affiliatemarketers must make sure what they promote is valuable and helpful, not crap. Otherwise you're undermining your own trust and authority. Click To Tweet
I highly suggest either ordering the product to try it yourself or reaching out and letting the company know you’re thinking about becoming an affiliate and would like to try the product.
Sometimes they will give you a free copy because in the end, they want as many people out there selling their products as possible.
With affiliate marketing, you’re given a unique URL that tracks your sales. So you don’t have to worry about shipping, order fulfillment of any kind, or customer service.
It’s a great alternative to having your own product and it saves you time developing it. If you sell a $1000 product that is yours, you’ve got to service the sales and phone calls that come with it.
Wealthanizing is as much about lifestyle as it is about creating financial wealth. Don’t you want time wealth as well as financial wealth?Wealthanizing is as much about lifestyle as it is about creating financial wealth. Don't you want time wealth as well as financial wealth? Click To Tweet
Sell two products that earn you $500 in commissions and you’ve still made $1000, plus your energy isn’t wasted trying to field all the customer service needs.
The bad side of that coin is also the good side. You don’t have any control. So a bad customer experience and you shoulder the blame without being able to make it right. So make sure you are happy with the product and the company you’re promoting.
Just be careful, as I mentioned before there are a lot of shady characters in this space and you don’t want to promote their stuff or become associated with them or you’ll lose whatever influence you have with your audience. Definitely spend time on the front end doing your due diligence.
#3) Utilize Your Network- Start a Home Based Business
As technology has grown, so has the ability for the average person to work from home. Home based businesses are making a comeback and this industry has changed dramatically over the last few years.
This includes companies like Avon, Mary Kay, LuLaRoe. Scentsy, Beachbody, The Pampered Chef, etc. This industry has gotten a bad reputation over the years for many justifiable reasons.
Amway basically created the industry and some of the tactics used by distributors were less than desirable. It left a bad taste in people’s mouths that persist to this day.
The other reason people get turned off to these type of businesses is because it’s a fact that most people lose more money than they make. Well, welcome to the business world and the world of entrepreneurship.
Most new startups fail and all the money invested dies with them. If that scares you, then stick to your job, put your $1000 in a 401k, and get comfortable for the next few decades.
If you start a home based business and fail, you’re only out your initial investment plus any tools or training you bought. If you fail at the restaurant business you’re out thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars.
From a risk versus reward standpoint, the home based business makes the most financial sense.From a risk versus reward standpoint, the #homebusiness model makes the most financial sense. Click To Tweet
For more on this, check out our ultimate guide on the benefits of network marketing.
The difference between a direct sales business and a traditional business is that when people start a traditional business and fail, the blame usually is placed on market trends,, issues in branding, or something else (maybe a bad idea).
This is because there is nobody else that can easily be blamed by the person who started it unless they blame themselves… which rarely happens.
Unfortunately, when people start network marketing and fail, the blame is placed on the company and the industry as a whole. This is because of two main reasons:
- The barrier of entry is so low. You don’t need much money (none if you use a credit card) or an extensive business plan to get going. Because so little time, thought, and money is put into getting started, it’s easy to quit and blame the industry. If somebody invested $50,000 they wouldn’t walk away so easy.
- The other reason the industry shoulders the blame is because most people get into network marketing with the wrong premise. They believe (and some people promote) the idea that it will be easy money, easy success, and no work. I’ve also seen many treat it like a hobby. Hobbies don’t pay big dividends unless you’re a world renowned painter.
The risk to reward ratio is off the charts with this type of business though, that’s why I highly recommend it as a way to double a thousand dollars.
Network Marketing is my #1 pick because of it’s simplicity, low barrier of entry, and lack of a need for technical knowledge.
If you go this route, understand that there are good and bad network marketing companies out there so make sure you pick a reputable one.
Also, not all compensation plans are the same. So spend some time looking at it closely and be sure you understand it and it makes sense to you.
Get in the right mindset. You are starting a business, so think it through as if you were investing in a franchise for tens of thousands of dollars.
Also know, it will not be easy, it will be hard work and many hours. But if you build a sizable business you can make some incredible money and just as importantly, create time freedom as well.
I’ve experimented with many things in my life.

4) Break investment into smaller parts
Instead of trying to double your $1000, why not break it into two $500 investments or four $250 investments and try to double those? That way you aren’t putting all your money into one investment.
If you have two things you try for 500 dollars and one goes bust- but the other works, then you have a winner. Plus you still have $1000 assuming you at least doubled your money on the winning venture.
Now you can do the one that worked again and theoretically you will double your money next time, while at the same time you just did your first split test.
There are too many ways to quickly double $1000 for me to cover them all right now. There are also lots of ways to lose your investment.
But the key is to take action on an idea you believe will work and do everything within your power to make it work (make sure you research your idea before starting to make sure it’s got a chance).
Said another way… Pray like it’s up to God and work like it’s up to you.Pray like it's up to God... Work like it's up to you. #Success Click To Tweet
If you’d like to start small or are still building up your bankroll for investing, I suggest starting by taking time to just think.
It’s a lost art form, but set aside a few hours, grab a pen and pad, and see what you can come up with.
#5) Flipping Dirt
This is one of my other favorite methods for doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling your money quickly. It’s a bit complicated and technical but it works. The technical stuff can be sourced out to a title company.
It’s also a great way to invest excess cash rather than letting it sit in a bank getting a few percentage points in interest. Why not put your money somewhere that you’ll get a hefty return.
There’s also very little competition.
If you take a look at my blog posts on this site, you will see a break of about 2 years.
(UPDATE- I re-launched this site on wordpress, so you probably can’t see the break in time I’m referring to).
During this time I stumbled upon a podcast by Jack Bosch that was discussing land flipping. His method appealed to me because according to him, it was possible to get raw land at a discount and resell it at retail prices.
Similar to a house flip except you didn’t have to “fix” the land. You can make improvements, but you don’t have to.
This made sense to me mostly because I’m a firm believer in not using debt and trying to stay debt free. However, it’s hard to buy investment homes with no debt unless your stacked with cash, which I wasn’t at the time.
After listening to many episodes of his podcast I decided to test his methods.
I wasn’t willing to buy his product yet because of the $1,500 price tag. However, I learned enough that I thought I could put something together myself and at least try the strategy by reverse engineering the information in his podcast.
I first mailed out small batches of letters to a tax delinquent list I got from our county. As the phone calls came in, I mailed out offers and to my surprise I bought my first property for $221.00. I still remember that number.
Since I wasn’t comfortable with title paperwork, I hired a local title company and was probably “all-in” to the property for about $775.00 (with title work and title insurance).
I then mailed a letter to each of the neighbors around the property and in a very short time (less than a month or two) I resold the property for $5,000.
I had another offer on the table for $3,500 at the same time. Looking back, I probably could have gotten more but I was an amateur (and an excited one at that).
The moment I cashed the cashiers check was the moment I was hooked and knew my financial life had taken another step in the right direction.
All I had to do was replicate it again, the old rinse and repeat method.
At that point, I bought a used version of Jack’s program on eBay (or Amazon, I can’t remember) with some of the profits and devoured it in a weekend.
I actually got more cynical after I sold that first property because I thought it was too easy and too good to be true.
Don’t get me wrong, it was a lot of work, energy, and effort.
My real job is so demanding from a stress perspective. For the money I made, based on the time and energy invested… it was easy.
I just really thought it was a one-off and I wouldn’t be able to do it again. My cynicism has since subsided and I’ve been working that side hustle in addition to my networking business ever since.
That first property made me a bit over $4,000. My second property netted me $8,135.00 profit, then $6,300.00, then $17,000 in profit, and so on and so forth.
When I resold that first property I did the deed and title transfer myself (which Jack recommends) and messed it up.
Ever since then, I’ve had a title company do all the work. I have a full time job in education, I blog and build a network marketing business, and the profit margins are so good with the deals I’m finding, it’s well worth letting somebody else do the paperwork.
I don’t have the time, energy, or desire to learn the details of the paperwork. The reason I’m doing it is to decrease stress, not increase it.
It costs about $500-750 for title company fees and title insurance, but it’s just taken out of the check they give me so I never miss it.
Another benefit of using a title company is that you build a relationship with them and they can talk to sellers about your legitimacy. I’ve had sellers call me after getting an offer and want to make sure this isn’t a scam.
So I tell them the title company I use, tell them they can look it up on Google and call them if they want, then give them the name of some of the employees to talk to.
They then call the title company to make sure my offer isn’t a scam (it’s happened a few times) and the title company basically sells them on me.
I’m one of their best customers because I’m not a bank- I pay all cash, close fast, and I’m easy to work with.
When I buy or sell something for all cash, their paperwork is a lot simpler than dealing with loan paperwork from bank.
Many of the fees are the same though, so they make more with less work on my deals.
UPDATE: I just recently came back to this blog post because it was getting some traction and I want you to know if you’re here, looking for a way to make some extra cash in the next 3-6 months, anybody can do this.
I wanted to update and share my experience because I spent 20 years trying out different programs. Some I made money off of, while other things were a waste of both time and money.
I knew this program would work because I actually implemented the ideas before I bought the program and flipped my first real estate property without borrowing a dime!
After making money, I bought the program to perfect my methodology and systematize it.
Below is an in depth look at the land flipping programs out there. I’ve used and reviewed all the courses listed in this section.
First things first though – Is $1000 enough to start?
Not really. It’s not quite enough for this particular strategy and the more money you have when you start the better. That’s why I recommend utilizing the network marketing strategy (#3) to build up 5-10k (or more) before trying this method.
This is one of the best ways I’ve found to to flip your money and make quick chunks of cash. It’s the best way I’ve found in 20 years to invest small or large amounts of cash and double it.
When you do start, you’ll need to get envelopes, stamps, and copies. I initially bought blank envelopes and a $10-$20 self inking address stamp from Staples. I then hand copied, stamped, folded, and stuffed all my envelopes.
At this point I order pre-stamped envelopes (they don’t cost much more) and pre-printed & pre-folded letters. My kids sometimes stuff the envelopes and put a postage stamps on them. It allows me to focus on making offers and gives them a chance to earn a little extra cash.
They’re even learning the business just by helping. My son wants to try to start doing land flips himself as a way to earn extra cash. He’s got to be 18 in our state to sign a contract, so now he’s just saving money.
You can see our website at Florida Land Buyers but you don’t need a website to do the program successfully.
We didn’t have one for at least a year.
I’m still learning everything I can about land investing. Listed below are the top teachers in this niche. I’ve been through all the information but I’ve pulled ideas from all of these people. I would check out each one and see who resonates with you.
If you only have $1000 and are determined to go down this route, I highly suggest you download a podcast player and search for their podcasts. Then spend time learning and researching (maybe even save up some more capital and cash).
The podcasts are all FREE learning and if you really listen and take notes you can reverse engineer your own system to do the same thing. There is no need in the beginning to actually buy the programs.
If you have $100-$2000, I can’t stress enough that you should do something else to build up a cash reserve.
One reason is because even if you manage to market and buy a property to flip, it won’t be as desirable as the more expensive lots, which I find to be much easier to sell.
All of the land investors listed below do this on a large scale and approach it in a slightly different manner.
I’ve given a brief description but as I said before, I think you should check out each one and see which method makes the most sense and resonates most with you.
1) Jack Bosch – Land Profit Generator
Total Cost: $1500.00+
Land Profit Generator was what his program was previously called but I think he might have updated it and changed the name.
Again, just search for the Jack Bosch podcast and listen to all the episodes. As far as I know, he stopped putting out new ones but the information is still good from the ones they did publish and they should still be accessible.
His method is to mail out to tax delinquent lists, people who are behind in their taxes. The thinking is if they aren’t paying their taxes they probably don’t want the property anyway.
Then when they call, make an offer and work out a deal to purchase it. This allows you to get the property before it goes to a tax deed sale.
If you google his program, it goes through phases in which it is available and not available.
At one point I signed up to be an affiliate but then he started making it available only at certain times so I quite that program because if you’re reading this you probably want options now.
2) Jack and Jill Dewitt – Land Academy
Total Cost: $1800 + $250 per month (ouch)
This couple runs Land Academy and LandPin (recently launched). I found them after I started making some money but they are a great source of information and they continue to teach for free via podcasts.
Their entire premise is that the secret is in the quality of data you have. If you have good data, you can save time and energy just by using mail merge to send out direct offers to owners based on the value of the land (of course, they sell you data as well- go figure).
I’m still working on implementing their method. As of this writing, I have thousands of pre-printed letters to finish up my current mailing, then I’m going to try their method.
Their method is different because instead of collecting leads and then analyzing propeties and making offers, they send out blanket offers based on the tax value of the land.
I would much rather analyze a deal after it’s been accepted in order to save time and energy. The great thing with land is that I rarely find issues that can’t be fixed as long as you’re using data properly, scrubbing it correctly, and doing your due diligence.
UPDATE: I recently had an opportunity to go through the Land Academy program. It was the old version that was out BEFORE they added a monthly membership and they’ve updated quite a bit in the last few years but it was a decent program. I learned some stuff about marketing the property and different methodology.
They really do push to send out offers before spending time analyzing properties. I currently send out mailings asking people… “who wants an offer”… then I analyze the properties of those that respond.
I just don’t want to call people back up and say “I changed my mind”. I don’t feel right about that.
If you have the money for their membership program, it’s probably pretty good but it’s expensive. The version I reviewed was from when it was just a one time purchase.
3) Mark Podolsky- The Land Geek
Total Cost: $1500+ (I think… I downloaded the free book and looked at the price once, then I borrowed the program from a buddy.)
Mark’s method and teaching focuses on financing land. Jack and Jill do this as well, but Mark is super passionate about the cash flow that comes from owner financing. To find him in the podcast universe, search his name or the best passive income model.
I’ve not been able to get comfortable with the process of financing yet, just because I’m a little worried about legal problems in the event of a default.
But I’m toying with starting that model because it is the only way to really stabilize income in a way that won’t fluctuate if you have a bad month or quarter.
I’m also not sure about the tax implications of owner financing. I will probably experiment with this model at some point, but I’m not there yet.
I find the network model (#3 of this post) is better for passive income because it has the power to grow exponentially and any lawsuit is almost surely going to be directed at the parent company (that’s bad thinking, but pragmatic).
Additionally, with owner financing you can usually charge a premium instead of needing to price the property low and you can set an interest rate so you make even more in the long run.
His information seems fairly good and might be right for you. My personality doesn’t resonate that well with him but I can’t put my finger on why.
For a while I thought he (Podolsky) stopped producing podcasts.
However, recently I found that he re-launched with a different name and format. So I’m just starting to listen to those episodes now. So far, his episodes aren’t quite as informative as some of the others but there are some nuggets in there that I’ve been able to get value from.
UPDATE: I just recently spent a weekend reviewing Mark Podolsky’s program which I borrowed from a friend. It was a bit of a let down actually. It had some good information but was choppy and not tied together well. There was even a DVD that was a later addition in which he went over stuff that he originally forgot to include.
He also pushes you to join his Mastermind Group which is also a monthly paid program.
Since it’s about the same price as the others, I would recommend his program last. If I had paid full price for it, I would have been disappointed.
Again, start by downloading all his FREE podcasts and start learning before making a purchasing decision because they are all expensive programs.
4) E.B. Farmer – The Land Flipper
Total Cost: $499
Link: The Land Flipper
Coupon Code ($150 discount or 50% monthly program!): WEALTHANIZE
This program I found after looking at the other ones and it’s priced significantly lower.
When I saw the price, I knew it could either be a flop or a fantastic resource for my readers.
I immediately went through the course and was so pleased with the outcome and professionalism that I contacted the creator of the program and negotiated an even better deal for you.
I also negotiated a slight commission, so it’s officially my first affiliate program. Yay- go me!
But that’s not the reason I reached out to them, I reached out because it is a fantastic (and reasonably priced) program.
Let’s dive into this program and why I think it’s the best resource to start with.
A) The Price Is Right
I’ve been through all the programs out there and they are all expensive for somebody who may just be getting started. This program comes in at a shockingly low price point of $500, which is 3x LESS than the next lowest competitor.
Additionally, it’s all inclusive. Whereas the other programs try to up-sell you on more products and a monthly subscription, I didn’t see any of that in this program.
You have two options. Buy lifetime access OR buy the monthly program.
It’s genuinely meant to help teach people how to flip land, NOT teach them, AND sell them more.
I don’t know how long the price will stay where it is, but it would be wise to take advantage of it while it’s low. If it was my course, the price point would be at $1,000.
NOTE: The price has increased twice since I wrote this article and I’ve had to come back and edit this post. If you’re thinking about land flipping, my guess is the cost of this program will continue to rise.
B) The Content is Right
The creator, E.B. Farmer comes from a family who has been doing this for generations. It seems to me it’s been a profitable family business that has been kept a secret for years.
The content was my biggest concern when I saw the price. I mean, for $500 when everything else is $1500+, how good could it be, right?
I don’t ever want to promote sub par options on this site.
However, this program exceeded my expectations and I’m sure it would do the same for you.
It covers all the essentials of buying and selling land just like the more expensive programs out there.
Here is E.B. Farmer’s overview and then I’ll give you my 2 cents and tell you how you can get a HUGE DISCOUNT.
Here are some of the topics:
Modules include Information on:
– Ideal Conditions for Buying (topography, environmental conditions, local laws)
– How to find deals
– Getting the Money & Bootstrapping
– Negotiation Basics in regard to land
– Contract Issues and Legal Verbiage
– Subdividing & Land Improvement
– Tips for Selling & Marketing
– Advanced Tools & Research
These are broad strokes, but the program goes into detail about these (and many other) topics.
This program teaches you strategies for finding land that don’t require mass mailings, that way you can find a deal without spending thousands on postage.
There’s a free online tool mentioned in the program that I use in all my research now.
Just knowing about this online tool alone is worth the price tag all by itself. I never knew anything like it existed and it’s hugely helpful for analyzing land, even though it’s a free resource.
It’s the absolute best way I’ve found to look at the topography of the land from your computer.
There’s also a slew of good ideas for subdividing and/or improving the land so you can maximize profits when you sell.
These are simple ideas and most of them are fairly easy to implement, but they are tips and tricks I never thought of even though I have flipped quite a pieces of land.
I wish I had known about the strategies sooner. Some of the strategies were never mentioned in any of the other more expensive programs.
I have a piece of land now that that I’m going to be using one of the strategies on. I think it will help me sell it fast, but more importantly, I will be able to get a premium of at least $10,000 more for the land than I would have without the strategy!
Spend $500, make an extra $10,000 on one deal… it’s a no brainer to me.
UPDATE: On the deal above I did better than I anticipated when I wrote this.
At the end of the day, it took me 10 months to sell it and I cleared $15,565.92 in profit!
C) The Delivery is Right
All the programs I’ve been through previously had a DVD and workbook delivery system.
Those programs were physical products. I don’t know about you but I would much rather go through something online and have immediate access to it, (as well as a cheaper price) than wait for it to arrive in the mail.
Additionally, it makes it easier for E.B. Farmer to keep the information updated. No need to sell through DVD inventory, he just updates the online program and it’s immediately available.
The Land Flipper is delivered via online modules with immediate access. It’s pretty slick compared to the others. There are hours of content and you can jump around modules to review certain sections really easily.
You don’t have to try to find it on a dvd.
The course is also unique because it’s a voice over of what E.B. Farmer is showing you on the screen. In those other programs, the speakers deliver a majority of the content by talking straight at the camera.
Hours of talking heads are bland and hard to digest.
The Land Flipper program walks you through everything with images and video, it just seems a little more technologically savy and you can tell time was spent developing it with quality in mind.
But, the BEST thing about the online delivery system is the speed control! Since it’s digital and not a DVD, there’s a button that allows you to listen to the program in fast forward.
The only way I know of to explain this is that it’s like the speed-up button on a podcast. It increases the speed while keeping the audio crisp, so you can actually go through it faster than you could in normal speed.
Time is one thing I never have enough of, so this option saved me hours.
If you’re interested in Flipping Land and making huge margins, this is where you should start.
As you begin making money, you can always continue your education with the more expensive programs using profits from your flips.
If you go with this program, don’t forget to use the coupon code below for a MAJOR discount!
The sooner you take action the better, the price has already gone up once since I wrote this and I had to come back and update this post. There’s no guarantee it’s still the same price. If I was E.B. farmer I’d be charging at least $999 for this inclusive course and maybe more.
*I highly recommend lifetime access so you don’t have a monthly fee every month.

5) Books about Flipping Dirt
Lastly, if you like books, you can get “The Land Flipper: Turning Dirt Into Dollars” from Amazon.
(You’d make my day if you supported me when you order by using the affiliate link above… remember the affiliate sections? Here’s a real life example).
I wish you luck and if you’re looking for something to do part time while working a regular job, I can’t say enough about it.
I also highly recommend re-investing all of the extra cash you make from it back into the business so you can capitalize on the compounding effect.
Flipping dirt is not sexy like flipping houses, but since you can do it without debt, make incredible margins, and do it all from sitting at home (I rarely see properties before purchasing them), it’s a great way to change the financial future of your family.
