What domains have you sold lately?

September 10, 2011

Are you buying domain names? Trying to sell these domain names? Don’t sit back and hope you’ll sell your domain names. As a domainer, you must be active in the domain game. What domains have you sold lately?

Preparing a sales pitch takes time. You may get discouraged. Many businesses lack professionalism. No wonder such businesses fail to retain their customers. These business owners will forget your name, never call back, and make up excuses.

What if a customer imitated these businesses? Most businesses would close their doors. Why is this information important? These are the people you hope will buy your domains? If you don’t operate a domain company, you will find that selling domain names is a tough act.

There are many successful domainers. They make a living from buying and selling domain names. However, their success relies on making business contacts. Businesses would rather conduct business with another company rather than to take a chance with you.

The next time you prepare a sales pitch, stop and think about your main goal. Do you want to waste your time trying to sell your domain names to a business? You may consider contacting domainers to buy your domains. Price and demand are two important indicators. Pricing your domains too high will decrease your sales. Offering the wrong domains will get rejections.

Businesses rarely follow-up with a domainer. They may call a domainer when a domain is their top service. There is sense of need that overshadows demand. Companies want domains, but must make decisions based on their marketing budget. For the most part, a clear need drives the online market. Deal with the need aspect rather than waste time with want and no demand for domains.

If a domainer prices their domains right, they will sell many domains. Furthermore, presenting the right domains will increase attention to a domain portfolio. In order to succeed in the domain space, you have to generate revenue through developing and selling your domains. Don’t waste your time reading domain blogs if you don’t plan to apply the information.

You want to sell your domains? List your domains on several domain platforms. Set the same prices or use the ‘make an offer’ option. Setting a fixed price above another buyer’s price limit or expectations can eliminate a potential sale. Choose a good price, make an offer, or include the combination of price and make an offer to increase your domain sales.

Consider trading your domains to another domainer to acquire domains more aligned with your future goals. Know your market. Learn everything there is to know about your domain portfolio’s keywords.

Contact many businesses because then you increase the probability to sell your domains. A rejection e-mail may lead to a potential sale. Make friends with the most successful domainers. These domainers may buy your domains.

Don’t be a passive domainer. Waiting to make a sale is like hoping for success. Successful rarely arrives unexpectedly at your door. Market your domains to put them in front of an audience. Supermarkets must market their products or else they lose out to their competitors. Still want to sell your domains?

Limit your time commenting on domain blogs. Don’t expect your fellow domainers to help you make sales. Never expect these domainers to buy your domains. Most certainly, these domainers will rarely help you out. You might come across three domainers out of a 1000 that actually care enough to help you. The rest are in the domain game to make a huge profit

Domain blogs want people to read their blogs to make revenue and to maintain a competitive advantage in the domain industry. Domain blogs and domain companies are like policymakers and interest groups. Domain newbies are identified as the target consumer market. A domain noob will click on ads, use affiliate programs and ask for advice. These same noobs will ask the same question over and over again.

How do you know when you reached success as a seller in the domain industry? You will know once you make sales without asking questions. You can negotiate deals to come to an agreement. You never hesitate while making cold-calls.

What domains have you sold lately? If you haven’t sold a domain, then you better reevaluate your domain goals. Do you make revenue developing domains? Are you carrying around high annual renewal fees? Think carefully about your domain goals to make future domain sales.

Why would a buyer make a $100,000 offer on VisitBerlin.com?

December 31, 2010

Recent sales and offers continue to puzzle me. I don’t understand how a buyer will visit Sedo or any other domain platform, and then make an offer for 30+ times the value of a domain. There is no accurate tools to appraise a domain. However, Estibot and Valuate are reliable when a buyer or seller needs quick access to a price.

There are many posters on other blogs that reject domain age and stats as a criteria to set a domain’s value. Nevertheless, a newly registered domain is not going to find a home for $50,000. CamRoulette.com is a rare case ($152,000 after hand registration). A domain’s age is relevant to its value. Some will argue against a domain’s age as determining appraisal value, but they know it is an important factor to setting the price.

I know that end-users make huge offers. They have no idea how to find a domain’s worth. All I see is end-users paying top dollars to acquire domains that are nowhere near their value. World Wide Media recently turned down an offer on VisitBerlin.com for $100,000. Of course, I’m confident the domain is worth far more than Estibot and Valuate’s $3300 price point. However, I don’t think VisitBerlin.com is worth $100,000.

It’s frustrating to see a company trying to ask $200,000 for a domain, but then end-users turn down domains that are worth 6 figures. These end-users question a domain offered for $200. They turn around and pay several times that amount for a domain worth 10 times less than the purchase price.

End-users will reject domains because they don’t have enough knowledge to determine their market value. On the other hand, they will make insane offers on over priced domains. Posters may not agree with my assessment, but I know that it is well supported.

I don’t believe that any domain in the 2000′s is worth $100,000. CookingGames.com did manage to fetch $355,000. The Vancouver company that purchased the domain has experience with online games. I understand the reason they purchased the domain. Visit “region” are popular .com domains. Is VisitBerlin.com worth $100,000? $200,000? $300,000? The buyer that offered $100,00 must think the domain is worth $100,000. The owner is probably looking to get between $150,000-$225,000.

How do end-users know what prices to offer a domain owner? Without appraisal tools, there is no effective way to set a market price. Many mediocre domains are selling for high amounts. Such domains are not commonly searched keywords. They don’t deserve to be put into a premium class without any unique traffic, backlinks, and sites linking in. If the domain lacks performance stats, then it should at least have popular keywords.

My recommendation is to change all your settings to accept offers. If you set fixed prices, you’re selling yourself short. Read the DN Journal to determine what types of domains are selling. There has to be a way to make a sale above $1,000. I think asking $1000+ for a domain that appraises above that amount is fair.

You have to be direct when making sales. Don’t allow an end-user to place you in a passive position – to accept less money for your domain(s). If elitist domain investors are making a fortune selling their domains, then we also deserve to make those sales too. No disrespect to World Wide Media, but VisitBerlin.com is not worth $100,000. However, VisitNYC.com recently sold on Sedo for $10,000, which I believe is a domain worth 6 figures.

Good luck! Happy New Year! Thanks for reading.

DayBuyDay.com sells for $10,000 – Why?

December 30, 2010

Why in the world would a company pay $10,000 for DayBuyDay.com? The domain fits their branding plan, but is not worth $10,000 with no real traffic, or high monthly searches. I’ll never understand how owners find buyers for over priced domains.

This sale is a perfect example of what makes me furious. It took me 100 calls to find a lead on a domain that is worth over $100K, which will be priced much less than the appraisal. The domain is specific to the business, and will definitely improve the company and save them money in the future.

But then, I see companies selling domains that have no business scoring high sales. In the future, the domain will be worth the sale price. I don’t understand why companies are paying top dollars for mediocre domains, when they turn down generic domains that compliment their business.

For the past 17 years, I planned to merge into Hollywood as an actor/writer. I’ve experienced major obstacles and challenges that held me back from accomplishing my long-term goal. Hollywood and the domain industry are exactly the same. It is who you know that will produce a big sale. If Sedo, or another company brokers a domain, then you can make a profit. Most end-users are more comfortable with established domain companies than with private parties.

I own several domains that produce better stats than DayBuyDay.com. DeliciousThaiFood.com, ProfessionalHairServices.com, and BelieveInEnergy.com produce better keyword results than DayBuyDay.com. However, the two best things DayBuyDay.com has going is that it’s an aged domain and the company is branding the name. Other than that, I don’t see the appeal.

I recommend domain investors to set “make offer” on all their domains. It’s not fair that many domain investors and companies are selling their domain for 10 times their value, when others struggles to get 10% of the value on better domains.

I don’t plan to sell CoverLetterServices.com. I already make $144 per year on 1 web directory listing. I will cease the negotiation on another cover letter domain. The buyer is refusing to up their offer a third time. I’m no longer interested in selling the domain, especially with recent domain sales setting records. I want a piece of the sales pie. I’m tired of making small sales, and getting rejected on brokering big time domains. It is now time to ask more for my domains.

You will see many over valued domains selling because they are aged domains. In addition, such domains are purchased for branding reasons. There is no other reason to pay $10,000 for a mediocre domains. In my opinion, DayBuyDay.com is not worth 15% of the purchase price. DaybyDay.com is the better domain that is worth $10,000.

I get rejected on selling two word service domains, only to see over priced domains being reported on the DN Journal every week. It’s appalling to sit back and hope for a big sale. Domain companies monopolize the aftermarket, making it hard for domain owners to establish a business outside of their sales platform. I picked up the phone and called 200 times in the past few weeks. I don’t mind the constant rejections, but these companies are usually clueless as to why they won’t purchase a domain.

Whenever a person asks what you want for a domain, give them a price right away. Don’t waste time preparing an e-mail. A city manager asked me what I wanted for my GEO city domains. I told him that I would send an e-mail with appraisal values and information. I made a mistake. A week later, they declined to buy the domains. What I should have done is to set prices right at that moment.

On another potential sale, I provided too much information on two box office domains, and lost the sale. You have to be direct, and share as little information as possible. Maybe I’m not meant to sell the domains. Who knows? All I know is that I don’t have the money to pay my rent. I lost two sales that could have made my situation much better. It pisses me off.

Anyhow, DayBuyDay.com is an unimpressive sale. I’m not moved when owners make over priced sales. Some offers are simple as an e-mail stating that another is going to pay an X amount for the domain.

I have to go back and forth on a cover letter domain that I know is worth at least $1500. And the buyer is refusing to increase their offer. I make $144 after fees for 1 web listing on coverletterservices.com. I wont let the other cover letter domain go for less than my last counter offer. There’s a reason the buyer wants the domain. I deserve to get the amount I’m asking for the domain. I will end the negotiation process soon.

Sometimes, I find the DN Journal is a bragging platform to boost egos. There are many great deals on Bargain Domains, and end-users are clueless about going there to make a purchase. They would rather pay 10 to 20 to 30 times of a domain’s value. It’s ridiculous. These are the very same companies that will make excuses on buying valuable domains, only to purchase over priced domains with little marketing potential. The domain industry is a joke, or maybe it is the companies that are clueless. Who knows? $10,000 would be better spent on a domain that is worthy of the price.

Recent Hand Registrations

December 19, 2010

Over the past several months, I purchased many job, resume, cover letter, education, taxi, service, and hotel domain names. Every time I find another niche, I shift my focus to a new category.

A few days ago, I purchased 3 domains. I feel that I have enough resume and cover letter domains. I’m looking more into newsletter domains to pad my marketing and business portfolio.

I hand registered the following domains:

NewsletterWritingServices.com
NewsletterFormats.net
SampleCvCoverLetter.com

I may have already wrote about these 3 domains. These domains will be in demand. The sample domain has over 3,500 local monthly searches.

NewsletterFormats.net is definitely a quality domain with widespread appeal. The $6+ CPC and the 1,200+ local monthly searches are good stats. People do search for what type of newletter formats there are in each field.

NewsletterWritingServices.com is a quality domain that will increase in value. The singular version was already registered by another newsletter writer.

ResumeNewsletter.com inspired me to search for more newsletter domains. I know there is a market in the business sector for such domains. Never stick to only one category. Spread out your investment to diversify your domain portfolio. Good luck.

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants

November 2, 2010

Last night I witnessed the San Francisco Giants win a championship. I have been waiting for years to see them finally earn a ring. The Giants have superb pitching, quality defense, clutch hitting, and excellent coaching.

I made it a point to write a few articles on the World Series on TicketNUB.com. I also put up a shopping app with San Francisco Giants gear on the home page. When you park domains, always look for ways to promote them. Pay attention to current trends, so that you can customize the content.

Sedo and Go Daddy’s parking system have restrictions, which makes it hard me to promote the domains, or I risk cancellation. In result of these restrictions, I decided to move all my domains over to Why Park. I have the ability to write articles, put up links, and to promote my domains.

Take advantage of the market. When you write articles, identify your target audience. Who’s going to visit your website? What do people type into the search engine window? I would suggest that you develop a website. Using parking accounts is cool if you have little money to spend, or lack ample time to invest into building your domains.

Adsense has never worked for me, but maybe you have a better domain to monetize. Don’t pay too much attention to people who criticize your domain names, or disregard your strategies. There are plenty of opportunities to succeed in the domain industry. Essentially, you control your fate.

The San Francisco Giants never listened to the critics. Each time they advanced to the next round, the pundits would choose the other team to win. The Giants continued to play hard. They never gave up, even when the moment looked hopeless. Because of their will to win, the Giants defied the odds to win their first title in San Francisco, and to end the franchise drought of 56 years without a title.

When you buy and sell domains, focus on your target audience. You might find valuable domains with millions of keyword results and searches, but there may be little demand in the market to resell the domain. Look for product and service domains, as well as education domains. Try as hard as you can to locate .com domains. Don’t always go after the .net unless the .com is taken, and there is demand for the keywords.

I own a few .net domains, but never had any luck selling any of them. My recent .net domain acquisitions are:

FreeCoverletter.net
DeAnza.net
Maniki.net
MagnifyGlass.net

I own around 50-75 .net domains. I recently acquired PayPer.org. I believe this domain will generate future interest. It’s a short domain with popular keywords, produces millions of keyword results, and is searched for millions of times globally. Focus on selling outside of the US. The majority of big sales featured on the DN Journal are those that come from foreign companies and investors.

Read DNJournal.com every Wednesday. Research the domains that sell, and determine the reason they produce a sale. Type-in the address, and see where the domain points to, or whether it’s being developed into a website.
Also use websites such as 7Zoom.com and WebsiteOutlook.com to find the backlinks, Google Page Ranks, and monthly unique visitors.

Think about how the San Francisco Giants won their first title. Use that concept to find good domain names, and to sell them, as well. Don’t listen to people that criticize you, unless their advice is good. Good luck!
