Please can you clarify the no1 especially the bolded? thanks

The shorter the domain name, the better. End-users more than 20 seen on Google map for a name is a good start.

Congratulations to all the resent sellers.

We are learning every day from this biz.
What I have learnt from the bosses here are:

1. While searching for names on ED, make sure you have many end-users on Google map (use map. Google. Com). The shorter the better.

2. During outbound, doing it manually is the best. ( I have tested manual and mail merge). Search your endusers on Google map, go to their sites one after the other to get leads, send your letter immediately one after the other. Get leads from Bing, LinkedIn etc if possible. But Google map is very very important.

3. Follow up periodically. Don't relent on follow up. Do even up to 5 times for each name. Arrange your names in a file (excel etc) so as to track your outbound well.

4. Get lots of sales letter and follow up letters. Ask for help if you feel your grammars are not many sense. This can turn a prospect off automatically.

5. Ask for help in closing deals if you feel you can't handle a particular prospect.

6. For newbies and others, don't forget to reinvest when you make sales. Grow your portfolio wisely. Learn from your mistakes. Try not to repeat them.

I stopped buying names last year December and focused on selling my portfolio out a little. And also to learn new things from my bosses here. I will resume buying this month.

I sold 11 names this month (portfolio size: less than 260 GEOs), all because I incorporated the above strategies. Try it lets see how it goes with you.

Sapiosexuality:
Congrats, man. This is huge. Like how many domains do you have in your portfolio? How many is healthy?

I have a total of 385 names. ~8% brandables, the rest are GEOs.

Every month I buy 15 - 35 names. I do renew some, while I let some drop.
I only start buying for the month when I have made atleast 2 sales.

I consider all my names to be healthy if not I wouldn't have bought them. When some don't sale after 1 year, I do reevaluate them to see if they are still healthy.

Hope this helps!

All thanks to Jehovah and all who have been contributing immensely here. My November sales.

Domain: knoxville/wedding//videography

Domain: texas//best//roofing

Few Lessons for me last month:

1. I change the time I do my outbound from 2-4 pm to 8-10pm and I saw a little result. Though the formal is still my best period but I will be interchanging from time to time.

2. Follow ups and negotiation skills are very important. I keep learning it from people here each time I visit.

3. Source for leads from all angles.

4. Believe in your domains. I have strong feelings for some domains that they will certainly sale. I only renew domains that had received offer(s) in the past.

5. Don't use one sales letter. Have as many as possible and use the ones that are pulling sales often.

6. Continue to trust in God and work hard. No dulling.

Note: Please nobody should feel like l'm trying to show off. I strongly believe I am contributing my quota by dropping this sales report to guide others in knowing what can sell.

#peace

Congrats, bro. You're doing well.

You're now among the people I look up to on this thread - those who sell three or more names in a month or sold a name for more than $350. Una be bosses! cheesy

Please I have some questions, if you have the time to answer them:

1. You wrote that you followed up for some expiring domains up to two times. Did you reduce the price each time you followed up? If not, what was the message of each follow-up email?

2. Like how many days apart did you send the two follow-up emails?

3. Did you send all those emails manually?

4. I got the impression that you include your phone number in emails. Is that correct?

Thanks.

Thanks bro, but I'm not a boss yet oo.

1. I didn't reduce price each time I do that. But I plan on doing that. Maybe start with, $205 then second follow up could be $165. I do this for my domains expiring in a month time.

2. 5 to 7 days.

3. No! I rarely do that. I use mail merge.

4. Yes!

Hope this helps.

Not trying to bring Dan down but two of my buyers told me their financial institution mailed them saying Dan's charges might be fraudulent.
Still love Dan for their swift pay out though.
Could you throw more light on you placing calls through to end users for a fee?
Thank you.

If a potential buyer ask you to call him or her, I can make the calls for you. Once payment is made, you send my commission. Check my signature for contact details.

September sales.

All thanks to Jehovah and all who have been contributing here.

Domain: dupage/divorce/lawyer/king
Selling p: $150
Venue: Dan
Hold time: 11 months

Domain: denver/couriers/king
Selling p: $155
Venue: Dan
Hold time: 11 months

Selling p: $125
Venue: epik
Hold time: 11 months

Domain: denver/barber/shop/king
Selling p: $205
Venue: Dan
Hold time: less than a month

I don't really like writing much words. Last month has taught me a lot.

I had some names expiring this month (about 14 GEOs), so I decided to reduce price and follow up again. Sold 2 during first follow up. Sold another 2 during second follow up still with reduced price. So 4 sales out of the 14 GEOs. I can use one sale to renew them all.

Also I bought a name last month, (highest sale in the list), did outbound the following day. Got 5 interested buyers. One went to buy the singular version probably because of my price. Another person called me and asked if it a scam. I cleared his doubt by pushing the domain to his dynadot account before he paid me. He was very happy.

The lessons;

1. Always follow up till the die minute.

2. For a quick flip especially those with large portfolio, put a reasonable price.

3. Check if the singular or plural version of your name is available. Act professionally if interest are flowing for the domain.

4. Call a buyer if he/she request for it ( I can help with that for a fee).

5. Dan doesn't have problems. I totally love them now.

Thanks! Please share your experiences for last month if possible.

More sales to us all. October to remember.

This question has been answered before, you can use PayPal . Search this trend about how to open a Lesotho PayPal that can receive and send from from Nigeria.

Thanks bro, I know about Lesotho PayPal. I have been receiving fund into my Iceland PayPal account but can't withdraw it to my prepaid card. I will open Lesotho account today.


What about Flutterwave and transferwise?

Please someone here should enlighten us on how to receive payment from buyers for private transactions.

I have been trying this private transactions stuff because most times you have to assure them that the domain purchase is not a scam. You may want to push the domain to them first before they pay.

I have receive payment from a buyer through btc.
What other options are there for us to receive payment from buyers that wish to pay with their credit card or wire transfer.

I think we need to iron this out so as to get the most out of our hustle. Though it's seems this have been discussed before.

Hi guys,
This post is a quick tip on how to pick and research GEOs. My bosses can also add theirs too.

Picking names from ED:

Right from when I first stumbled on this thread, I have been keeping records of all the reported sales.
Now take note of all the keywords that have been selling e.g web, floor, lawyer, dentist, roof, rental, limo, service, etc. Head over to ED, under "contains" insert your keywords (maximum 30 keywords). Other filters are common to us all.

Researching names:

This has not been easy for any serious domainer. This is my own little trick.
Firstly, since I keep record of people's sales, I am kind of familiar with keywords that can sale.

1. Copy a name you feel is nice. Say, garagedoorrepairkaty/com do a Google search in this format, garage door repair katy.com
Now ur goals are to check how many end-users or companies are running this business. Are they using any of the keywords in their domain or website tittle? How many are using low quality domains like, hyphenated names, longer names, numerical names, lower extensions etc.
Please do a Google search with this domain I sold for $799, garagedoorrepairkaty/com

2. You can also do a Bing/com search or Google map search (map.Google.Com) if you are not satisfied with (1).

3. Try web.archive.org to see what the domain was previously used for. That is, If a genuine business was running with the name.

4. I do use hosterstats.com to know how the domain has been moving from 1 hand to another. How old it it. Whether it was listed for sale before or if this is the first time it's dropping.


Now keep this in mind with GEOs.
1. You need more names to keep the sales flowing.
2. Always outbound and do multiple follow up.
3. Try to buy what I call "must have names" for end-users e.g garagedoorrepairkaty/com These are names that can,
I. Add value to an existing business.
II. They can upgrade immediately to.

4. Buy names with many competitions. Not the competition on ED, the one you noticed while doing your Google search. You will notice end-users are fighting for your keywords, as a result some use bad names. Also almost all the first 5 pages of Google have listed the business according to your keywords in that location.

5. I don't really look at search volume, competition and cpc on ED. I am always after, "how many end-users are there".

6. While doing the Google search, you will notice which keywords is commonly used. E.g between "dog training", "dog walking" "dog Grooming" "dog sitting" etc. Try to go for the one that is commonly used in that location of your domain.

7. Though you are bound to register bad names sometimes, but keep practicing even if you don't have money to buy. Just watchlist them for experiment.
There are exceptions to most of what I wrote in this post. You know some domain sales are just mind blowing.


Sorry for the long write up and errors, I dey write as the month dey sweet me. I know am not alone. Please, you can also tell me where I need to improve on too. Thanks.

If you wish to quote this post, please shorten it.
