Can You Make More by Selling for Less?

Posted on 30 November 2013 by Andrei

As strange as it may sound yes, you can.

Last year, I started offering brokerage services for short domains such as LLL dot coms in exchange for a 3% commission but I only accept domains which are priced for a quick sale.

Posted on 28 November 2013 by Andrei

I have to admit, receiving a healthy payment each month *and* getting to keep your asset sounds great but to be perfectly honest, I have mixed feelings about the potential of leasing domains.

Let me explain why.

Investment Grade Short Domains – Pros and/or Cons?

Posted on 27 November 2013 by Andrei

First of all, I’m referring to investment grade short domains as in quad premium LLLL dot coms at the very least (so quad premiums, CVCVs, LLLs, NNNs etc.).

Personally, I wouldn’t buy anything less valuable than a quad premium and I explained why at the beginning of November.

How Much Are You Paying Yourself?

Posted on 26 November 2013 by Andrei

A lot of domainers are extremely satisfied with their ROI when buying a domain for a low price or even hand registering it, then contacting a bunch of potential end users and ultimately selling for mid-high 3 figs to low 4 figs.

In most cases, they shouldn’t be all that satisfied because after crunching the numbers and factoring in the amount of time they spent finding the domain(s), contacting end users and closing the deal(s), they’d come to the conclusion that the amount they’re paying themselves per hour isn’t all that high.

Reseller Market Recovery vs. Stock Market Recovery?

Posted on 25 November 2013 by Andrei

End user sales are doing ok but the reseller (domainer to domainer) market hasn’t picked up as spectacularly as the stock market, for example. In my opinion, that might actually be a good thing and I will try to explain why.

It’s True, Domains Have Lost Their Glitter

Posted on 23 November 2013 by Andrei

Sorry guys but the Forbes article is spot on, you should just let all of your domains expire and stop wasting your time/money.

But you know what, since I want to do you a favor and help you out, I’d be willing to take all of the domains you paid $xxxx+ for off your hands and pay you a more than reasonable cent on the dollar.

Black Friday Mistakes vs. Domaining Mistakes

Posted on 22 November 2013 by Andrei

Believe it or not, there are lots of similarities.

Back in October, I explained that one of Warren Buffett’s famous quotes (“It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price”) makes perfect sense when it comes to domains as well.

Today, I’ll take things one step further and use the Black Friday analogy to explain that buying something useless just because it’s “on sale” is worse than not buying anything at all.

“You’re Too Poor to Buy Cheap Domains”

Posted on 21 November 2013 by Andrei

In my country and probably in other cultures as well, there is a popular saying, my grandfather used to tell me this frequently many years ago:

“I’m too poor to buy cheap things”
