Why you should check your spam box

Why-you-should-check-your-spam-boxHello everyone,

It’s quite long since I published last post. It was a busy last month due to some personal reasons. However, I sold another domain last month. Normally Google mail filters the good and bad emails correctly but sometimes it doesn’t so we need to check that. I received an inquiry in my spam box which I was just going to delete it and saw my domain name in the subject so I just stopped there. I moved that domain under inbox and read it. I found that inquiry to be legitimate and I responded back with the asking price. Within a week we settled in four figures range and the deal was done successfully.

The best part was the buyer wanted to pay me first privately. He wired the funds in my bank and later I transferred the domain to him. He even paid the wire fee for both parties so I ended up receiving full amount. However, I have decided not to share the domain this time as well and most of the time won’t share it due to some reasons. I could see the domain has been listed for sale. I didn’t knew the buyer is reseller but I feel I got the right money for that domain.

In the end I would suggest you to check your spam box clearly and simply do not delete all email immediately without going through them. It was my first deal successfully closed which was received in spam box. Now I closely monitor my spam mails before deleting it. Make sure you guys do it as well.

So have you received domain inquiry in spam and completed the deal successfully?

AbdulBasit.com sold another domain for high four figures

AbdulBasit.com-sold-another-domain-for-high-four-figuresHello everyone,

I think this month is going quite nice in terms of domain sales for me. Recently I sold another domain but this time in high four figures. Unfortunately I cannot disclose the domain once again but I can give you some hint on what type of domain it was… It was like lllGroup.com. Now that LLL I mentioned is just an example. The one I sold contained random letters but all premium. By the way, this domain was sold through DomainNameSales.com. My second domain sale through their platform. It’s really easy and smooth to handle inquiries with their platform.

I think it was a nice sale keeping random 3 letters along with the word “group” at the end. I always think if you have quality domains with the word group at the end would do nice because endusers which is group of companies won’t offer you cheap bucks. But still make sure to find, research and buy quality domains.

Let me tell you the most interesting thing about this domain. It was actually bought by a company several years back for low four figures and once they closed their business the domain was dropped and grabbed by me couple of years back or so…

The price I paid for this domain was in decent three figures and I feel the ROI is quite nice.

Just to give my suggestion that don’t rush and invest in random lllGroup.com domain because there are tons of available so make sure whatever you wish to acquire, first research, analyze and try to get at wholesale price if that’s already registered by some reseller.

Have you sold any domain recently? Care to share in detail? Also what do you think of my recent sale whether I got good money or left some money on table 😉

New record achieved in domain parking

New-record-achieved-in-domain-parkingHello everyone,

July was one of the best month for me in terms of domain parking. In the past I said my goal is to make US$1,000 for the last month of this year or Jan 2014. So now this mini goal seems to be quite realistic because I made almost US$700 in domain parking last month which for me is great achievement. Now the important thing is to stick to the basics and make sure I am making the same amount or more on consistent basis.

I saw this increase due to buying some domains solely on parking purpose. Normally I buy domains with the intention of selling and making money through parking on temporary basis.

The highest click so far in domain parking for me is $13.xx for one of my domain and that’s a last name of person. That must have boosted the amount reaching towards US$700 😉

Now for the month of August I will be tweaking some of my domains so I am not sure if the revenue will drop or increase. Let’s see and I will keep you updated as always.

Care to share how was your previous month in terms of domain parking?

Sold a domain to Fox Film for mid four figures

Sold-a-domain-to-Fox-Film-for-mid-four-figuresHello everyone,

I haven’t been posting quite frequently because I don’t get enough time to do. Recently I sold another domain for mid four figures but this time to Fox Film. It was a 3 word .com domain and the inquiry came through DomainNameSales.com broker. I wish I knew the buyer before finalizing the deal or I could have definitely fetched a lot more.

Although I am happy for what this domain sold for so no regrets. Unfortunately I cannot share the domain. Bought for 3 figures so it was quite nice ROI 😉

I avoid dealing through brokers and want to do it all myself. There are two reasons for this. One is to avoid giving commission and the other is to learn myself on how to deal it with all different prospects. One thing I have learned dealing through broker is to ask more price than usually you would ask yourself if dealing directly. This make sense to me because if the buyer feels the price is outrageous he may try to contact you directly in order to keep the hefty commission (10%-20%) away. There is also one disadvantage of asking high price which may make the buyer to head off.

But I will follow what I said above and see the outcome. It will take some months to analyze and see if the results are fruitful or not. I will definitely share with you guys if I will remember or will have a successful sale using my own method.

I haven’t shared the domain so you might not be able to tell if I left some money on table or not but still I wanted to share with you friends 🙂

Until my next post, have fun and stay tuned 🙂

 

PPC revenue for June 2013

PPC-revenue-for-June-2013Hello everyone,

As I made record parking revenue in the month of May 2013 and I though June will somewhat similar in terms of revenue but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. I made almost $100 less compare to previous month. Most of the credit in declining PPC income goes to me because I made some tweaking and put some of my money making and type-in traffic domains with other platform and brought them back to InternetTraffic because they didn’t perform as good as I thought.

Now as I have moved my domains back to InternetTraffic and with the addition of some more domains I feel this month July would be doing well. By the way, I saw some traffic dipping as well as the RPC. I think this is due to people are on vacations which might be one of the reason for low traffic. You must be thinking of why I am talking about low RPC. That’s because when you are on vacation (if you are an advertiser) you must have stopped your advertising campaigns for the time being and will resume after the break. This can cause in low competition which end results in low RPC. Am I correct or am I correct? 😉

How did your domains performed in parking revenue for May 2013? Feel free to shoot any comments, suggestions you have 🙂
