My performance review of 2015

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

At the very beginning of 2015 I wrote about the achievements in 2014 and my goals for 2015. After going through that post right now I see the first goal was to have 1,200 domains by the end of 2015 and I can tell you I almost got it there. Finally I have 1180 domains under my portfolio closing this year.

Second was to make $1,000 p/month in domain parking. This was once again a disappointment because for the last 2 years I have been setting the same goal but revenue is not as increasing as the number of domains in my portfolio.

Third was to make at least $5,000 sale in total every month. I can tell you that I made double than what amount I set to make every month the whole year which personally is very satisfactory.

Fourth was to sell 20-24 domains in the entire 2015 which isn’t difficult considering the number of domains but eventually I ended up selling 13 domains plus 1 lease to buy option domain which was cancelled this month with non-payment but that gave me several months of bonus revenue and keeping back the domain. I feel sorry for the buyer but cannot do anything other than sending several reminders and give some extra time than mentioned in contract. Although the number of domain sales were too less but making total sales in six figures is something what I focus more rather than selling domains cheap.

Last was personal goal, not related to domains… It was to move out from Karachi where I was born and grew up. And finally I moved to Islamabad (capital city) in mid of 2015 and so far it’s great experience and overall happy with this decision.

To wrap up in short, it was a fantastic year than I expected and what I can surely say for next year is to have a much better year INSHAALLAH. Thanks to ALLAH who has given me everything and lot of happiness than I could even imagine, my parents who supported me specially my father, entire domaining community from whom I have learnt plenty of stuff and learning it every day and my life partner who is always there to fully support me in every decision I make in my life.

Care to share your experiences in 2015?

I wish all my readers a wonderful New Year.

“Although the number of domain sales were too less but making total sales in six figures is something what I focus more rather than selling domains cheap.”

Love that right there. I think this is a great strategy even though you sell a lower number of domains, you are bringing in more money.

Congrats on your success Abdul. You’ve been one of my biggest inspirations and also an all around great person.

Thank you for what you do.

Happy New Year to you as well! Congrats on the goal achievements! There’s nothing better than setting them up and knocking them down, and then doing it again!!! Best of luck in this New Year!

Hello Abdul, I have been following your blog for a while & I read it whenever I want to feel motivated. I have gathered a few domains (30+) in the last few years. However, I have had no success selling them at all. I had a few paid listings at flippa but that didn’t also resulted in any sale. Waste of time & money. I have bought a few domains, which I am sure I paid a higher price for but I think they hold good value for the end customer/user. I currently use Bodis for parking revenue and was… Read more »
