Bitcoins, Domains, Terrorism & Hurricanes.

Posted on 10 September 2017 by Graham Haynes

If you ever want an example of how the news dictates our thinking, Hurricane Irma and Harvey are your touch stones.
Think of the biggest weather disaster in the last 14 days and most would think of the two hurricanes hitting the US but both pale into insignificance to the recent Moonson floods in South Asia, death toll now over 1,200, 1.5 million buildings destroyed, 10s thousands of schools and hospitals have gone and 40 million people affected. It hardly gets a mention on the mainstream news in Europe or US.

Why Can’t Brokers Simply Aim Higher?

Posted on 16 March 2017 by Andrei

As a broker, I’ve noticed that those who submit domains along with prices for consideration frequently say something along the lines of “let’s just start by aiming higher and then we’ll see” and from their perspective, it seems logical. After all, sellers want to extract as much money as possible but there are two more parties involved: the broker and the buyer.

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 41

Posted on 08 May 2016 by Andrei

I’m literally in firesale mode right now and today’s newsletter has it all: -edited: the domains have been removed-. Something on today’s list for everyone.

Here’s the full text of the newsletter and as always, the domains will be removed within 48-ish hours so as not to get indexed:

“I’ve never offered these domains at such low prices before, motivated to move inventory!

Let’s get right down to business:

-edited: the domains have been removed-

Payment via Escrow.com (buyer pays fee) or PayPal (add 3% if you cannot pay via masspay or “send to friend”).

To let me know which domain(s) you want, reply to this email or send a message to andrei@domainingtips.com.

Take care,
Andrei”

Wasn’t able to send the newsletter yesterday, so I’m sending it today instead, with some very juicy inventory to make up for it. 73 LLLL dot coms are being sold and from now on, the newsletter will focus on short domains pretty much exclusively because that’s where the money is and that’s where I need to be.

Posted on 30 October 2015 by Andrei

The price of a NamesCon ticket will go up from $399 to $599 on the 1st of November and I have to say, I really wish I could go. It’s reasonably priced and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it.

Is Meaningful End User Awareness Something Money Can Buy?

Posted on 17 August 2015 by Andrei

… in my opinion, the answer is closer to “no” than to “yes” and I will try to explain why. It’s easy to place all of the burden on registries and assume they have to buy their way towards end user awareness (billboards, TV ads, radio ads, online advertising of course and so on)… realistically speaking, that’s not going to happen. Why? Simply because they’d have to throw ridiculous amounts of money to obtain even a ridiculously small fraction of the results that dot com for example obtains effortlessly.

The Results of My Dot Berlin Case Study

Posted on 10 August 2015 by Andrei

As some of you remember, I tried a little experiment back when Dot Berlin offered 100 free domains. I did a bit of research, found out what the most widely used letters in Germany are and hand registered 100 LLL Dot Berlin domains. Next, I pointed them to a very simple “domain for sale” page with a message in English and one in German (my German is a bit rusty but decent nonetheless) and waited until renewal time came along. On each “domain for sale” page, I displayed a very low Buy It Now price: 295 EUR.

Here we are, one year later and it’s time for some conclusions.
