  1. James Booth has only been a part of the industry for two years, but during that time he has produced some impressive sales figures. Very recently, James has crossed a significant milestone of $10 million in sales. Here, we speak with James about his past two years as a domain name broker and we learn exclusively about two new six figure sales that James has been a part of.


    When was your first domain name sale and why did you choose to start brokering domains?


    Out of your $10 million in sales, what percentage of has been from personal investments versus brokered domains?

    What has been your single largest sale (either brokered or personal sale) to date?


    Can you give us any exclusive sales that you haven’t revealed anywhere else?


    Which category of domain names has been the most popular amongst your clients?


    How many of each category of domain name have you sold?


    Has your personal investment strategy changed since you started investing in domain names? If so, how?


    What has been the biggest change within the industry since you started?


    What do you expect to happen within the liquid domains market within the next twelve months?

    James is a prime example of someone who came late to the party and was able to conquer. Every investor can learn from his dedication and focus. If there was an industry award to recognize such performance I would be the first to vote for him. "All the good domains are gone" -- I am sure he has heard this 1000 times and still does - his focus is what makes him great. Very nice read - nice enough to make my first comment in a few years on a post ) .. well deserved James, well deserved indeed.

    I watched his interview on Sherpa ,its amazing how this guy kept going even with rejection and so many hang ups ,seems so hard ,then I noticed I make about 10-15 sales a year via cold calling,but all those sales are equal came from calls that could have been made in 5 days of focused constant pumping of the phones,which is what james probably does every day. So my guess is if we were in a bucketshop type of setting with a boss screeming at us if we put down the phone ,we may see sales that would make even james proud.

    Hey James well done. Don't know if you remember me, my name is Avalon I used to talk with you on skype when you were selling your LLLL.com's

    Well done my friend, It's amazing you took this so far I am very impressed. I remember at the time we used to talk bitcoin was still in it's infancy. You went 1 route (domaining) and I went the other (bitcoins) it is amazing to see what happened with both virtual assets in such a short amount of time! You are a testament to persistence my friend.
