Should You Always Counter The Initial Domain Offer – 3 Things To Consider

The art of negotiation can be pretty tough when it comes to selling your domain names. Many of us always wonder what is the right price of a name and how do we even determine how much to sell the name for. At first, it may seem to be difficult but once you get more experience it becomes a bit simpler.

I have talked about pricing your domains in the past but this post will focus on how to deal with an inbound offer on your domain and if you should agree right away to the first offer. The most common approach is to either take the first offer in order to simply sell the name or counter with a larger number.

Of course I’ve done both of these but it’s always good to have a strategic approach for better results.

You must first ask yourself:

How Do You Feel About Geo Domains?

This is going to be a short and rather random post but for some reason, I’ve always liked Geo domain names.

I don’t know why but I always feel like a business could use a domain name that’s specifically targeted towards their location. All you have to do is walk around your town or any busy area and you will run across a business using a geo type domain name.

It could be the entire city in the domain or an acronym of the city.

How To Find The Decision Maker When Buying or Selling Domains – Here Are Some Tools

One of the toughest aspects of buying and selling domains comes down to finding the right person to reach out to.

This has always been a struggle for me since it can be discouraging sending out emails only to get no responses and making calls only to get no call backs.

There are many people who will tell you outbound is a numbers game and so a ton of volume is required in order to see results. Knowing how to find end users is important as you can see in a previous post but also understanding what are the most effective methods to use is critical.

What Metrics Are Most Important To You When Purchasing A Domain Name?

I always ask myself a question when I sit and scan for domain names. What are the most important “metrics” I should look for when I decide to purchase a domain name.

If you have ever sat and filtered for domain names, then you know how HUGE the expired domain name lists could be.

And if you aren’t using filters to clean up your lists I have NO idea how you do it.

Seriously, is that even possible?

So Whats The Plan For 2017?

2017 is upon us!

So what’s the strategy for this year when it comes to our domain name sales and acquisition?

First off, we mainly buy .COM domain names. This is something that is not going to change any time soon. No matter what type of hype the gtld’s or other extensions are getting, .COM sales are always far and above the best.

Other extensions I always keep an eye on would be:

Want To Invest In The Chinese Domain Market? You Should Probably Read This…

What’s up everyone!?

Let me tell you, when it comes to investing in the Chinese domain market, I am probably one of the last people you should look to advice on this subject.

It’s extremely detailed and when I got started buying and selling domains, I never sat down and tried to understand it. If you’ve been around domaining for the last few years, I am sure you’ve heard about the CHIP craze.

People were literally selling domain names for INCREDIBLE returns within days, weeks or a few months after purchase.

How To Make A Sale Even If Your Auction Doesn’t Sell At Flippa

So this post is going to be brief but it is in regards to another cool feature that Flippa offers for their auctions.

Let’s face it, sometimes when you put an auction up it doesn’t sell.

This probably happens more often than not.

At times, you may have lots of interested people and other times you barely get any auction views and fail to sell your domain name. In most cases and with other platforms, you simply can relist your domain name…and hopefully this time it sells.

But Flippa offers something pretty unique…

Why Selling Domains On Flippa Is Pretty Cool

Selling domain names on Flippa is something I saw coming a few years ago. I did some business several years ago on Flippa when I use to build websites, optimize them for the search engines and then monetize them. If you haven’t noticed yet, web properties that earn revenue are a HOT commodity. You could get between 10X and more of the monthly earning revenue if you decide to sell, which is what we did all those years ago.

Flippa wasn’t known for ONLY domains (without a corresponding website) at the time but I remember when I got into domaining thinking of how Flippa would become a platform where domains could be bought and sold, WITHOUT a website.

And now look, Flippa is a pretty popular place for the domain name space.

How To Track The Whois Inquiries On Your Domain Names

This is going to be a fairly brief post about something that I’ve always thought about when it comes to domain names.

Usually with our domain names, we always want to know the common metrics:

  • Search Volume
  • CPC
  • Age


But I always wanted to know if there was a way to see how many people actually typed your domain in a whois search, which in my opinion is SUPER IMPORTANT if you are trying to sell domain names.

I ran across a super old post on namepros that answered my question…
