Five Figure Domain Sale and Parking Revenue for July 2014

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Back from six figure sale to a five figure sale for which I can’t reveal much info other than the sale amount which was $20,000 and it was .com. Once again it was brokered through Jessica Ebanks of DomainNameSales and the sale was completed through Escrow.com. Always pleasure working with DNS team specially Jessica and it was swiftly done with Escrow.com which is the best escrow service.

Coming back to parking revenue of July for which I am publishing the stats a bit late but this is the area which I must focus to achieve one of my another goal for this year. Previous month wasn’t impressive although I didn’t add that many domains to my portfolio. Below is some of the parking stats which might be helpful to you in some way. This time I have added top 5 niches and CTR which was suggested by one of my friend Mohammed Zaki.

Total visitors – 117,000+

Total clicks – 5,000+

Total parked domains – 700

Total revenue – $550

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

$$ made on a single day – $30

RPM – $5.2

CTR – 5.62%

To add something on above stats, there is one domain which is banned by Google and that received 26,000+ 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. Also found that clicks have gone up compare to June 2014.

Added few domains in the last month month but instead of improvement, I saw significant decline but I will take that since having a good sale this month. There could be one reason of revenue drop due to summer where possibly advertisers might be keeping their budget tight. Many people are on vacations. I am hopeful to have some improvement this month and if not, I will have to make some changes in categories/sub-categories of domains which receive decent traffic to see if anything gets better…

Have you seen any drop in the parking revenue for the last month? Made any sale recently which you would like to share with us?

Congrats for your “mysterious” 5 figures sale AbdulBasit! 🙂
Nice uniques stats, hope your fail-listed name is something resalable, since you can’t count on traffic revenue.

If you don’t want to reveal Domain name than this blog is useless

Sometimes, there is NDA associated with Domain sales and one should honour it. Even if NDA expire after years, i don’t think its right to disclose the price.

Hello,
Congrats again for the 20k $ sale, it has become a routine sale for you, Keep Going. Good Luck

hey thanks for the mention and remembering the request. and adding the top 5 niche and CTR details.
It gives more clear view now for people to understand.

Excluding the G Banned Traffic or including it,
I will say its a very huge Traffic to own, for your portfolio.
its like 170 visitors per domain.

May i know whether the buyer approached u first, or you approached the buyer?

Is it a brandable domain? or is it really a keyword rich, generic domain which has decent search volume per month? or high Cpc?

Can you say how old the domain was and where/when you bought it from w/o giving the purchase price away? 🙂

Congrats on this and your 6 figure sale. Seems that .com domain aftermarket prices are holding up despite the new gtlds.

What was the buyer’s first offer for this $20,000 sale? How did the negotiation go? Many thanks!

How can I get accepted at DNS? I keep getting declined and that has left me even more confused.

How do I reach Jessic Ebanks?

Congrats again! I’ve gone through all the comments and your responses to them. Nice to note that you’re sharing whatever info relevant to this name except the name itself which I understand is sometimes needed to protect the identity of the buyer. By the way your parking revenue has increased or decreased compare to your previous parking results?

Hi Abdul,

When you send away emails to potential buyers, what email service do you normally use? Gmail, Yahoo or any other?

I reckon one major problem is our emails will not reach the person we send them to most of the time, so I would like to know what service others use, specifically those who are as active as yourself.

Abdul, Yes, I can understand why you don’t send emails away any more, since you must be holding better quality names nowadays after many good sales you’ve had in recent months. But most of us have a bunch of ordinary names which we would like to flip for anything they’re worth. Your suggestion of using the format you’re using for your emails, I can say it can be effective if the end users look up your info on the whois records, otherwise it may even look more spammy in my opinion. Anyhow, this is a big issue which is a… Read more »

What I meant was if you used an unknown private domain name for your emails, it would definitely look more spammy, like the spam emails which try to sell viagra etc. But if your domain was called RichardBranson.com that would be a different matter! So emails sent from a well-known domain name (but not Yahoo, Gmail etc) would be read more often.

As it happens if you use emails attached to this site and the recipients of your emails checked the site, then that might go against you, since they may think, this guy is a flipper and he must have bought the domain very cheaply and he may be asking for too much profit margins. The example being the high profit margin you got from selling CuppyCakes. On the other hand if they don’t bother reading your posts, then that may help you sell the names a lot easier. Just a hypothetical question: If you had another CuppyCakes, who would you… Read more »

A few girls my dad used to know, played the same tactics as well, some of them are now in their late eighties and still not married – only kidding 🙂

Anyhow, my mission is to go and look for someone who’d be interested in Cuppy Cakes – I can’t say much more for now, except to the interested bodies!

[…] 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 […]
