Sold a dozen job domains as a package

December 7, 2010

My last sale was a job package deal a few weeks ago. This time around, I packaged a dozen job domains together to make another sale. I took less than the appraisal value, but I still made a good ROI.

Appraisal value is not the standard to setting prices. A domain is only worth what an end-user is willing to pay for it. The main reason I make sales is because I build a rapport with past buyers. Past buyers already know who you are, so they can trust that a deal will go through smoothly, without any complications.

Most of the time I retain the buyer’s information to speed up the process the next time around. Of course, these are buyers that I communicate with on a regular basis, and ones that trust me enough to buy from me again. The hardest part of selling is trying to find a buyer. Once you receive a reply back that states interest in a specific domain(s), there is no reason you can’t strike a deal.

New domainers struggle to make sales because they attach high prices to their domains. When a buyer makes an offer, determine what price will entice the buyer without scaring them away. I would send an offer back that is double the amount they offered you for the domain.

For example, a $300 offer will have a counteroffer of $600. You can set your expectations at $400, but don’t be too quick to lower the price to $400. When I need money, I usually avoid negotiation to ruin a potential sale. I managed to negotiate on the package deal with increasing the price and adding in another site.

I learned many times before that setting high prices and not knowing the market well enough will ruin a deal. I don’t call my sales luck because I put in a lot of work to contact people, as well as to push the domains to the new owner. My best domain sales are job domains. They’re easy to sell, especially to people that operate in the job industry.

Recently, I turned low traffic sites into good traffic sites. I researched what products and services are most popular, and then refined the content to reflect the demand. Many sites now show up on Google Page #1 for specific articles and videos. I also apply shopping apps on the domains to gain traffic when people search for laptops, resume paper, software, and nursing scrubs.

The .com domains are the best extensions to generate traffic and search engine positioning. However, I noticed that .net domains are pulling up on Google Page #1. And .net domains are actually producing ad clicks.

I find that I’ve done well with domaining because I turn a new site into something I can sell in the aftermarket. I never purchase domains in auctions or make offers to owners to acquire domains. I’m confident I can find good domains through hand registering them.

Selling domains is fun when you find buyers. Nevertheless, there are many times you will experience a selling drought. You never know when you will receive a reply back to purchase one of your domains, and if someone will make you an offer without you knowing ahead of time.

Never cold call a business unless you have premium domains. I called a business today to offer a top domain to them. The domain belongs to another, but I can make commission if the domain sells. The owner was excited about possibly acquiring the domain. He told me that another one of his associates would call me back regarding the domain. For the most part, he has beginner knowledge on domains and computers.

I notice that good domains worth more than $20K attract interest. Less valuable domains are much harder to sell to end-users. In the past 10 months, I only received 2 email offers to buy my domains. I sold two domains because of advertising on Craig’s List. Another two domains sold on Bargain Domains. And the rest of my domains were sold to end-users I contacted, or to past buyers.

It is possible to make sales. You have to put in the work to get results. Persistence is the key to selling. Know how to price your domains to sell. Practice negotiating. Sell your domains in package deals to move many at one time. Lastly, be confident about your domains because a buyer will sense when you’re passive, and they will use that weakness to reduce the price. Thanks for reading. Good luck.

List your domains on Bargain Domains

November 3, 2010

A few months ago, I sold trackinglight.com and FrostytheSnowman.us on Bargain Domains. Whereas, I didn’t make a fortune on these domains, I managed to make 10 times the cost of registration.

If you have a few domains that you can afford to sell at a fraction of the value, it is well worth your time to list them. You can also buy some quality domains on the website. I once passed up on trainstations.org. That could’ve been a great addition to my domain portfolio.

Use your judgment when listing domains. There are times when it is better to keep a domain, or to sell it to an end-user, instead of letting it go for cheap. You’ll have an idea on whether to sell on Bargain Domains, or to look elsewhere.

I noticed handymanservices.com has been on the site, even when bidders have attempted to win the domain. Due to the reserve, the owner probably elected to decline the 5% sale, and take another chance on the auction. If you own an appealing domain, and you’re looking to make a sale, check out Bargain Domains. Good luck!
