flippaFlippa upgrades are fairly expensive, but are usually quite useful to help your site stand out. To put it plainly – more exposure means better price and a higher chance of getting a sale.

Recently flippa have been sending out many free upgrades to encourage people to start more auctions. The way to get them is usually by just setting up an auction for your site or domain, but not starting it and just waiting a few days with the auction draft in your profile. Sometimes they send out free upgrades that you claim if you start the auction within a day or two from your draft, This is how I got free upgrades, worth $135 for my last two flippa auctions, one of them sold today:

Hi,We’ve noticed that you have started a listing in your Flippa account but it hasn’t gone live yet. Well, here’s a great reason to push it live.
