Few recent interesting domain sales

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

My last post about domain sales published earlier in January so I thought it’s the time to share some of the recent past sales which hopefully be encouraging and helpful in some way…

GreenPest.com – I bought this domain from a fellow domainer couple of years back in a package deal. This was sold via Afternic BIN at $3,888.

Younifi.com – Acquired this domain for $xx couple of months back and had BIN of $3,988 at both major platforms Sedo and Afternic. However, got direct inquiry and after I quoted price, got an offer of $2,000 for a quick deal to be done that day itself. I wasn’t tempted to sell it as that wasn’t an acceptable offer. I revised my asking and gave my final price of $3,500. Going back and forth for at least couple of times more and sticking with the same price of $3,500, buyer agreed and bought the name. All in all, it was really nice dealing with buyer. Great person to deal with.

CosmoChem.com – This was an interesting sale completed this month. Acquired the name less than two months back for $xxx, got direct inquiry via Uniregistry lander. Buyer was from Korea and if I remember correctly, I sold my first domain to a buyer from Korea. Funny thing in the entire deal was the buyer kept talking completely in Korean language which I needed to translate every time at Google Translate to understand what buyer says. After which I always responded back in English. It was good the buyer understood English language and I had no problem if he was responding back in Korean language 😀

Initially buyer asked for the price for which I quoted $7,888. Buyer offered with $3,700. I reduced to $7,250. And then there was silence for a week period… I usually don’t follow up unless I sense the seriousness from any potential buyer. In this case, I followed up and buyer improved the offer to $6,000.

I gave my final price of $7,000 and took the entire escrow fee at my end which in almost all my transactions, my buyers pay. Eventually $7,000 was accepted and deal completed through Escrow.com

TheNordic.com – Bought this domain several years back. Afternic broker (Will Black) contacted on behalf of their client with an offer of $5,888. It was having BIN for $6,888 both at Sedo and Afternic. He asked if I’ve any flexibility, would like to counter or accept. I responded to remain stick at $6,888. Few days later, got accepted and payment on the way! Many thanks Will as you’ve done good job in getting the buyer to accept $6,888. It’s been great doing business with you in past and this time as well! Hope to do many more deals with you in future 🙂

VELO.org – I’m sharing this particular sale because surprisingly this was my first .org sale and was sold for $5,888 through Afternic BIN.

Feel free to share your past and/or recent domain sales and if you like can give feedback on my sales.

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.

Recent Domain Sales

recent-domain-salesHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

As mentioned in my previous post where I shared parking revenue for October 2014, I promised to share couple of domain sales I completed last month.

First I sold HomeBird.com for $4,500 which will be soon reported in DnJournal next weekly sales report. I bought this domain in three figs several years back. Transaction was really smoothly done and dusted. Previous to this inquiry for HomeBird which turned into successful sale, I had received a total of 14 inquiries. I never thought of receiving that many inquiries until the deal was completed.

Next sale was out of nowhere really. As you know at the start of this year I have myself stopped contacting endusers and wants them to show their interest in buying my domain. But previously I used to send hundreds of emails trying to sell my domain and one was for the domain Jyden.com which I sold for $2,000. I initially contacted the buyer almost 3 years back but the buyer wasn’t satisfied going through Escrow.com and wanted to send money through bank which was acceptable. Still they had problem and asked if they could send $1,000 in between the domain transfer process and remaining 1k after the domain is transferred to them. I refused and the talk stalled there. I tried to educate them as best and our discussions took place for at least couple of months but of no use…

Last month they came back and wanted to proceed with Escrow.com and I was happy to go ahead and finish off. Not a big sale but it was more of a surprise sale for me. Both domains were acquired some years back in three figs each.

Feel free to share your views on those sales and have you made any sales recently?

Four Figure Domain Sale and Parking Revenue for August 2014

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

I think one domain sale a month suits me well. At the very start of this month I completed another sale for $5,000. I know many people who read about my last domain sale were not quite happy when I didn’t disclose the domain name. However, let’s share the name with you this time 😉 The domain was Spadille.com and there was a decent profit made from it. The inquiry came several months back and when I don’t follow up for 30 days the inquiry is automatically assigned to one of the DNS brokers and they try to keep in touch with the potential buyer and gives their best to make it successful sale at the end.

Once again the domain was sold through DomainNameSales.com brokered by Derek Marshall (first sale with Derek) and hopeful to make many more along with him. He handled nicely and I appreciate his support and friendly manner. Also I can never forget Escrow.com from where the deal was completed at the end. One thing I tell my friends that in my country banks get robbed and your lockers are not safe but when you deal with Escrow.com, your money is in safest hands and you don’t have to worry at all 🙂 Thanks DomainNameSales, Escrow.com and the entire teams of both.

Now I would like to share parking stats for August 2014.

Total visitors – 122,000+

Total clicks – 4,500+

Total parked domains – 725

Total revenue – $550

Top 5 niche which made the most – Games, Health, Music, VPN, Music

$$ made on a single day – $35

RPM – $5.17

CTR – 4.8%

There is one domain which is banned by Google and that received 27,000+ visitors with zero clicks and it was all paid per visitor and I have added those visitors in the above stats and excluded RPM and CTR from that. CTR and RPM went down and in actual revenue went down too because I added 25 domains but the revenue remained same so there should be some improvement and I will have to look into this issue as well…

What has been your parking revenue for the last month? Made any sale recently which you would like to share?
