    In your case no avatar is just fine.

    To your question, dump worthless domains and visit NameJet or similar places to acquire a better domains and sell them with profit.

    Sorry. maybe I was a bit harsh but I'm really not feeling those names. Try and improve your portfolio with good names. It's better to have few that are good than to have many worthless names

    Judging by your undeveloped portfolio, your names are hot garbage and it's obvious why you don't make any sales. It's a bunch of misspelled junk and random combinations of words and numbers. You have over 1,000 names ... that's close to $1,000 a month in renewal costs... you are literally setting your money on fire.

    Try coming up with a strategy and figuring out potential buyers for your name before you buy the name? You are throwing a lot of πŸ’©at the wall to see what sticks and that is the worst possible business strategy.

    Even if you got these names for $1 each ... that's $1,000 you could have used to buy 2 really good domains or one great domain. Instead your strategy is ... I don't even know what your trying to accomplish here honestly.

    Put all of your names into a 55-gallon drum and set them on fire. Never look back. You wasted your money. Learn your lessons and never buy another domain name until you figure out what you're doing.

    Not only are your names bad, but you have a few dubious potential trademark issues going on. appelestore, kirkstater, goooglecom. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

    Give up and work on your strengths.

    Only the DomainElite can get good value for their: Time + Capital outlay.

    Statistically, this elite can only be a small number of people based off the maths.

    Hobbiests never count the hours they waste 'domaining' including bidding, reading, forum-ing on sites like Namepros, Pros like me do.

    If you count all your hrs then, what's your hourly rate?

    In my early days I made some sales due to luck, so I bought more domains but they weren't so great. Making a few sales is a good sign but it's the long-term trend that tells if you're on the right track :xf.wink:

    Maybe you sold those names simply because that were better than the rest. Not all domains have the same odds of selling.

    But if you have 300 names and assuming they are .com at $8/yr each you are looking at a yearly renewal expense of 2.5K. So you need to make that much in sales every year before you even turn a profit. It's easier said than done.

    The top ten names you listed are bad. Random domains with no meaning. If they are representative of the portfolio, then I think you should drop a lot, then you'll have disposable income that you can use to buy quality domains. Buy fewer but better domains.

    In theory, you might have had couple of good names in your pickup of 300 that priced at xxx might have sold quickly, while giving you perception that you have good portfolio.

    I agree that your top 10 is not flattering of the remainder.
     
  17. I'd suggest you keep tolhy.com, and probably leave the rest of them.

    Here's the simplest advice I can give. Only buy expired domains for awhile. If you are about to buy a domain, look around online to see if any other business exists with that particular name or has existed with that same name.

    If there are over 7 billion people in the world and there is no proof that multiple people have tried to run a business using that name or are currently using the same business name, that is a bad sign. Because even when you have a domain that matches the exact business name of active and past businesses, it still has a low probability of selling. So, why would you want to put yourself in an even worse position and buy a domain based on a term that no one in the world has ever pursued commercially?

    For example, I bought ASliceAbove//com last year. It was previously used for a cake company, and there are 2 other Pizza Businesses with the same name. As an experiment, I tried outbound for this domain at $450 because I thought it was a guaranteed sale. But, the owners were perfectly happy with their ASliceAboveOtherWord//com domain. No interest in switching their name, or even pointing the name to their existing site and both of these business actually take orders online.

    Spend time going through all your names and performing the same type of lookups to see if that name is actively used for any businesses. Only count businesses that are actually making money, or look like they are spending money on their brand. I did this for my names, and in the last 40 days alone I saved $483.55 in renewals, then I put most of it towards 1 of 2 payments for a $600 brandable 4 letter domain.

    Are you committed to marketing your portfolio?

    If yes, what are your marketing strategies?

    I'm in a similar situation as the OP accept the fact I've never sold a domain. It's been 1 year today that I started buying domains ( yes a lot of crap. But reading and learning a lot through namepros). I've never sold a domain, never had an offer, never had an enquiry, never had spam. It's like they are invisible. Got them on Sedo, afternic and undeveloped. DNS pointing to undeveloped.

    Ok I just went through all the domains you listed on undeveloped, and most are in .xyz extension the ones in .com are mixed with numbers and letters, now do you see part of it is your fault, the only name that got me attracted was moouv.com in the sense that it is brandable,
    Now what you should take your time and seive the bad names from the good ones , list the brandeb one amongst them on brandpa, brandbucket or squaldhelp
    Then let the bad ones expire don't waste money again on them,
    If you have a good name and it does not sell fast,don't panic is matter of time, so try what I said and let's see if you get an offer

    See the good ones I noted and the are brandable
    Moouv.com
    Rankinz.com
    Roboja.com
    Botzila.com
    Navmaps.com
    Rotorcab.com
    Topmonie.com
    Hempzila.com
    Icetrolly.com
