Keepin it short and simple

Keepin it short and simple

Recently BuyDomains.com rolled out a newly re-designed website, as did Frank Schilling’s DomainNameSales.com. Both new websites have been stripped down quite a bit and have a nice modern look and feel to them. Overall, I’d say they both look great and in-line with the times we live in today. They have one thing in common though which you too can take-away and apply into your own websites as well and that is: simplicity. Nowadays websites work best if they are kept simple rather than made too complex with a ton of information and...

Getting squeezed sucks — What to do??!

Getting squeezed sucks — What to do??!

It happens to everybody, sooner than later that is. Rarely anything good lasts forever. This is what has been happening the past few years in the domain industry… Big time!! The bigger players, such as registrars and veteran domainers with money up the ass have been squeezing the little guys right out. Crying or bitching really won’t do much though. You just have to suck it up and re-strategize. There are many ways to go about earning a buck in this wonderful biz we call domaining. You just can’t get attached to any one method too much....

Wanna make lots of money? Learn how to lose first..

Wanna make lots of money? Learn how to lose first..

In order to make it as an investor over the long run and be successful, not just as a domainer (domain investor type) but any type of buy-low-and-then-sell-high guy… You have to learn how to lose money first and do so really well. Doesn’t matter whether it’s few hundred bucks or hundreds of thousands… It’s the hands-on experience and lessons you take away from each and every deal. Until you can learn how to accept the fact that you just blew all that money… You won’t have a breakthrough.

99.5% +/- of all domains are just lottery tickets

99.5% +/- of all domains are just lottery tickets

Domaining is very similar to playing the lottery but ultimately the end-result depends on your ability to shop around the domain during a set time frame and hopefully get it sold one way or another. How much? Whatever you can get… The market will set the price. You always hear all this talk about end-users all the freakin time… Blah blah!! It’s mostly non-sense, I tell ya. They rarely come knocking on your door, and you simply cannot rely on that as your main source of income. Especially not for your hand regged domains. Those are...

Kevin Ham’s new blog @ AffiliateMarketing.com

Kevin Ham’s new blog @ AffiliateMarketing.com

It looks like AffiliateMarketing.com is going to be up and running very soon… This is one of Ham’s most prized domains, a true category killer name which covers a multi-billion dollar industry. Arguably one of the hottest industry’s around on the internet today. Affiliate marketing is bigger than domaining and search engine optimization combined. It’s probably right up there with e-commerce and web hosting. Huge potential once properly developed. If you are wondering what’s Kevin Ham and his crew know about...

Themed lists of domains for sale — I likey!

Themed lists of domains for sale — I likey!

I have always been a big fan of on-topic domains for sale presented in a relevant group format.. And today arrived in my inbox a collection of some nice medical/health related domains from John Daly’s NameConnect.com such as: Pediatrician.org $20k, Cardiologist.org $20k, Dieticians.com $20k, Neurologist.org $20k, Radiologist.org $20k, Therapist.org $10K, Dietician.net $5K, Hygenist.org $5k and a bunch of other ones as well that are all descriptive of occupations in the healthcare field and would be perfect to setup as a national...

Form optimization — you better get it right!

Form optimization — you better get it right!

Lead generation has always been a hot topic within the domaining industry, and specifically amongst the pure-play-domainers-turning-developers’ crowd as of late. As PPC has steadily declined, domain investors have turned to lead gen on their websites in an attempt to cash in on their quality traffic… But in order to squeeze out each and every lead, you have to know what you are doing as far as designing and optimizing the lead gen forms to begin with. Just like there is an art to search engine optimization, and a lot of variables...

This extended holiday weekend somebody is going to strike gold

This extended holiday weekend somebody is going to strike gold

Holidays and extended weekends… Ahhh These times, my friends, is when you can make 10x or even 100x of what you normally would easily in the domaining game… All in a matter of 24 – 48 hours… Yep! Even most domainers who make their living exclusively online take weekends and especially the big holidays off too, which means… HUGE OPPORTUNITIES for you! Business will carry on as usual whether it’s the weekend, some holidays or whatever else, but many of the usual suspects will be noticeably missing from all the action. I...

Blogging is fun, interesting and sometimes…… WTF?

Blogging is fun, interesting and sometimes……  WTF?

A lot of fun and interesting stuff happens behind the scenes for those who blog… I  do get a lot of  feedback publicly and privately on just about every post I make on here. Some of the comments are just plain hilarious and make my day. Makes for a really good laugh… I received this the other day for example: hi there, one of your posts recently inspired me to purchase a domain name that I think is worth a lot of money, my question is, do you think I should use the name to point traffic at my existing companies products or sell...

.XXX domains available dirt cheap +++ Get 4-for-the-price-of-1 ?!??! :)

.XXX domains available dirt cheap +++ Get 4-for-the-price-of-1 ?!??! :)

For about another two weeks dotXXX domains will remain heavily discounted. You can find them for as low as $8.99 per new registration compared to 1 1/2 years ago when the new gTLD was originally introduced each registration would run  you anywhere from $80 to $150 if not more, depending on which registrar you choose to do business with and what type of bulk pricing you qualified for. Now even at $80 a pop, it was a lot of money and it could quickly add up to thousands of dollars for just a handful of domains. Big gamble… But thanks to...

Re-selling domains is as easy as 1-2-3

Re-selling domains is as easy as 1-2-3

At this point in time, it’s pretty much as easy as it has ever been buying domains and then re-selling (flipping) them for a multiple that you are happy with. There are more brokers, auction sites and various other specialty marketplaces than there has ever been. Simply put, the resources and tools that are available right now for domain investors are vast and there seems to be more and more of these popping up every other day. So yea, that is definitely good news… Selling domains is pretty straightforward in this day and age. Just...

Tweeter.com will be auctioned off next week..

This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a very special type of domain. Why? Because nowadays you rarely see quality high trafficked domains such as Tweeter.com coming up for auction… But come Monday, you will have the opportunity to be the new proud owner of Tweeter.com, Tweeters.com, Twtr.com, and other Tweeter related domains thanks to Hilco Streambank who will be conducting an online auction of multiple domains and some trademark intellectual property on behalf of it’s clients who seem to be looking for an...

New gTLD’s = SLUTS!

New gTLD’s =  SLUTS!

Recently I had an in-depth convo with another domain industry insider who is heavily involved with the roll-out of a couple of new gTLD’s that will be “wildly popular” so obviously he is all for them and they are the next great domaining goldrush is what he proclaimed… Me? I am neutral on the case. I think there is definitely going to be some opportunities to make $$$ with these new domains if you know what you are doing but overall I think all these soon-to-be-available new gTLD’s are sluts. Period. Sluts??!...

SnapNames & NameJet inventory sucking…

SnapNames & NameJet inventory sucking…

Yep… It’s really sucking a lot as of lately which I am sure you have already noticed, and this explains the sharp traffic/activity declines on both sites. If you go back to just a year or year and a half ago and examine the traffic levels (thanks to Alexa.com) you will see a huge decline of 50% to 75% at least… But what I am wondering is where will this trend bottom out? Why are people abandoning the sites and the most important question is where are they buying good domains if not on SN/NJ??! Well, pretty much all of the...

Yup… Back from the dead

Hello everybody! Good to be back. Sorry for not updating the blog in the last few month’s… Lots going on behind the scenes which you probably could care less about, so I will save all the details.. But with that said — Yup I am officially back to blogging. Going to try to pick things up right where we left off. There is always lots going on in the domaining business and overall a ton of opportunities are still up for grabs if you are game. Lots on my mind and other things that need to be covered and put out there…. Need...

DomainBrokers.com now offering “rent” option…

Well, it looks like Kevin Ham’s DomainBrokers.com has jumped on the latest craze in the domaining world of offering the option of renting a domain. Visitors who land on any of Kevin Ham’s domains now can either straight-out buy a domain or rent it, apparently for as little as $50/month with the minimum term being 3 month’s.     It’s interesting to see some of the largest portfolio holders in the world now offering some of their domains for rent/lease… Certainly there has been lots of buzz over the past...

DomainSherpa’s 100th video update is here…

It’s a huge milestone for DomainSherpa.com and I want to personally congratulate Michael Cyger and the entire DomainSherpa team! In the very chaotic and often misunderstood domaining world, it’s rare to find new-comers to this business with such great interest and passion that Michael Cyger often exhibits… I think this has been a perfect match made in heaven if you know what I mean Next month, DomainSherpa will be turning 2 years old officially. WOW!! Time flew by. Nowadays, it’s hard to come by a good blog or any...

Still buying domains on the aftermarket/auctions… ?

Still buying domains on the aftermarket/auctions… ?

Hahahah!! If so, then you are a FOOL. Look, I have been cutting out the middleman (SnapNames, NameJet, etc.) for a while now and in the process saving A TON OF MONEY! Why overpay on domains 5x, 10x or more and involve yourself in a stupid auction with potentially dozens or hundreds of other domainers when you can snag the domain in private directly from the owner and do so on the cheap. Sounds too good to be true? It’s really not. Looky here… I know not too many people talk about this practice out in the open like I’m about...

Rick Latona — Alive?

Not that long ago, for those who remember… Not a single day would seem to go by that Rick Latona’s name wasn’t being plastered in tons and tons of domaining blogs headlines, and his various domaining related business ventures being discussed all over the forums, etc… But lately Rick Latona has pretty much been a ghost as far as any activity in the public eye if you were to look him up on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter or even his own once popular and active blog site at RickLatona.com. Just recently...

Domaining videos never really seem to take off.. WHY?!

Over the past 2 – 3 years there have been a handful of domainers trying to put out videos consistently, but the end results always seem to be the same: they never really take off and gain a lot of popularity. That’s just a fact, if you look at the YouTube channels of Michael Gilmour, Simon Johnson, Michael Cyger, Adam Dicker, Morgan Linton and Patrick Ruddell. Below are the direct links to the videos published by these six people, sorted by popularity; most viewed to least. I don’t really seem to remember anybody else off top...
