DomainX 2015 Conference

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

There will be some key speakers like Ron Jackson, Frank Schilling, Zak Muscovitch, Jason Schaeffer and a few more. Conference organizer Manmeet Singh informed me about DomainX Conference some time back and he invited me to be one of the speakers at his conference for which I am very much thankful. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year’s conference mainly due to accident and shifting to new place for which I need some time to settle down everything. Hope I can attend in 2016.

You can reserve tickets online and feel free to share here if any one you are going to attend this conference so others might get in touch with you easily.

New record in domain parking revenue for May 2015

 

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

I was late in publishing the parking revenue for May 2015 as I got an accident due to which I am typing with one hand. I am hoping to get well by next month In Sha ALLAH :)

As per my goals set for this year it seems I am in the right direction. I just ended up by making very little over $1,000 in domain parking which was a real good sign. The most important thing is to have consistency and will be closely looking to those domains which are making most of the revenue.

I bought a domain recently which I found to have been making good in revenue overall. It has backlinks of over 500k which in my opinion is huge in numbers.

 

New-record-in-domain-parking-revenue-for-May-2015

 

Total visitors – 70,000+ (huge decline comparing to previous months).

Total clicks – 3,300+ (Again less number of clicks comparing to previous months).

Total parked domains – 1,000.

Total revenue – $1,000 (Better revenue comparing to many previous months)

Top 5 niche which made the most – Insurance, Insurance, Brandable, Cooking, Games.

$$ made on a single day – $136 (Highest revenue on a given day).

RPM – $14.04 (Highest so far in overall RPM).

CTR – 4.57% (Not as good as in past).

I found there was significantly less visitors compare to previous months and finally I reached the mark of 1,000 in having that number of domains in my portfolio. But at the end I like the revenue to be the most and doesn’t matter much how many visitors come 😉

I need to reach my goal of selling 20-24 domains this year as I need to focus on selling more domains and take whatever decent profit I am getting which is still not up to the mark.

I think this is the slowest post I have ever made in typing and I hope there are no typing errors 😀

How was your revenue since the start of this year? Care to share your recent domain sale(s)?

One major goal achieved with some other updates

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

As everyone can see I have made my last post almost a month back and the main reason behind that was to shift from Karachi to new place which I mentioned in one of my previous posts. I was going to either shift in Dubai or Islamabad this summer and ALHUMDULLILAH finally I decided and moved to Islamabad this month.

I visited Islamabad earlier too, did survey before finally shifting on permanent basis. I found this better place for my family’s future. Recently we bought new house and a hybrid car Prius Tommykaira 2011 for which I wanted to share some pictures with you all.

So far 1 goal has been achieved and I will try my best to achieve remaining 4 goals within this year although I know it will be difficult because while shifting and all I got slowed down in buying as well as selling domains. I will try my level best to publish posts more regularly from next month as I need to have some more time to sort out remaining stuff.

During this migration, I sold another domain but this time it was in four figures 😉 The domain name was RockTools.com which was sold for $4,000 through DNS broker Brooke. Thanks to Brooke for constantly keeping in touch with the buyer and wrap up the deal on time and when required exactly. Many thanks to Escrow.com too for helping in closing this deal very smoothly. I can never ask for anything better at Escrow.com as they are simply the best.

Thanks to ALLAH Almighty who showed us right path and we moved to a far better place.

As I am new in this city, any of you from Islamabad/Rawalpindi may contact me if you wish to.

Auction your domains whenever you’d like at Sedo.com

 

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Recently I listed all my domains at Sedo but not much inquiries through them and honestly I want more domains to be sold through DomainNameSales or direct inquiries made through WHOIS because that keeps the commission away and everything is transparent at every stage.

Auction-domains-whenever-you-like-at-Sedo
However, today I received an interesting email from Sedo which says that you can auction off your domain at their platform any time for only €59.

Just choose the starting time and your desired minimum bid – that’s it. Your domain auction will be featured on our homepage and in matching search results, attracting bids.

With our new Direct Auction, you are free to choose:

  • Which domain to auction off
  • When to run the auction
  • Your own desired minimum price
How to start a Direct AuctionTo start a Direct Auction you need to first list your domains for sale, which you can easily do from the ‘My Domains’ menu. After adding the domains you want to sell, you can then start your own, personal auction. Simply click on “Promote Domains” below your domain list.

  • Choose up to 10 domains
  • Set a price between $90 and $10,000 and
  • Select your desired start date

We’ll send you your own individual auction page link, so that you can share your domain auction with potential buyers.

Additionally, your domain auction will be featured on our homepage and in matching search results, maximizing visibility and reach!


Your benefits

  • High flexibility: Start an auction any time you want
  • Maximum exposure: Featured on Sedo’s homepage & search results
  • Full control: Choose your desired reserve price

I personally think this will bring in lot of crappy domains into auction stage where you will find difficulties in finding the right domain for yourself. Overall, I see it’s good for Sedo as they will end up making more money and auctions will have lower quality of names compare to decent one’s.


What are your thoughts in this regard and would you give it a try some day in near future?
