As you all know, we continually put up videos about a wide range of topics in the domain industry and online marketing in general.
But what we haven’t shown yet are the mess ups…
That’s exactly what this video is for.
Have you been working on outbound marketing for your domaining business? If you haven’t tried it yet, outbound marketing can be extremely challenging.
Cold emailing prospects or even cold calling an individual or company can be an extremely hard task, especially when you get no response at all. Even worse, you could get a nasty reply or have to worry about a UDRP lawsuit.
There are a ton of different opinions on outbound marketing and it’s effectiveness as a strategy overall.
Have you been using outbound marketing consistently for your business?
This topic is something I really don’t hear many people talk about but I feel it is very important.
Whenever you have a current auction for a domain name, you need as many eyeballs as you can to visit that auction. Every person who sees it gives you an opportunity to get a new bid, request a buy it now offer etc. The more views, the better.
But one of the best type of people to visit your auctions are…
If you are looking to sell your domain name and haven’t had much luck then maybe you should look into the namepros wanted section.
First of all, namepros is probably the most popular forum in the domain name industry. If you don’t know about it, you should.
The section that you could potentially srike gold in is the “Domain Wanted Section”.
We discuss why in the video below:
A month or so ago, I had my eye on a real good (or so I thought at the time) domain name on Namejet. I was extremely surprised when there were only about 4 or 5 other bidders against me in a private Pre release auction.
Usually, I am up against several more people but on this day, I felt like I could possibly win this domain name, for a great price.
Little did I know, I was going to make a boneheaded mistake.
Isn’t it great when you get an inquiry on one of the domain names that you own?
It may not happen often to many people but if you own a decent amount of domain names/higher quality names, you should receive a few per year at the least.
The question is, are you following up with your leads in the best way possible?
In this audio, Will is going to break down some quick tips in regards to following up with your leads.
If you haven’t heard yet, Eric Lyon from NamePros was affected by Hurricane Harvey that hit the Houston area.
A fellow domainer and someone I consider a friend brought it to my attention that he has an auction up and running were all the proceeds will go to help support Eric and his family during this troubling time.
If interested, you can visit the auction here.
If you didn’t know, there are a lot of people out there who DO NOT like domainers or the entire domain name industry.
They do not like the idea of someone being able to have a domain name and not build anything on it. In some ways, I could compare owning domain names to real estate.
You basically own “land” and are waiting for someone to buy the land off you OR you can develop it, your choice.
Received a letter in the mail a few weeks back and decided to write a post about it. Seems like a company wants me to renew my domain with them, instead of the current registrar where it’s located.
The thing is, this company wants about 4X more money per year for the renewal!
How does this make any sense at all!?
