    I think this can be one of the points. Talking to the buyer can clarify a lot of things in just one call, and mainly prevent to lose that buyer due to a lack of dialogue.

    You make more money on the buy IMO.

    I have made steady sales for more than a decade, but recently I have had much larger profits on paper as there are fewer reinvestment opportunities.

    Yes. I certainly did make money. Got into full-time domaining around August 2018.

    Total approx dollar volume of sold domains in 2019 = $35,000+

    Very much in the green after deducting the commissions and covering my renewals upto end of March 2020, and any other business expenses.

    Eagerly looking forward to scale it up in 2020.

    Total revenue for me this year is just over $82,450. About half of that was invested back in my portfolio and on renewals. It's been my most profitable year as a domain name investor since I started 7 years ago. Wishing everyone a profitable 2020.

    $4,000+ net profit this year from a portfolio of 121 domains.
    75% - Afternic BIN
    25% - Outbound

    1st half of the year was very good for me, second half almost dead (only one sale in October).

    Unfortunately very little money is being made with parking in the industry these days. Only a small fraction of domains make more than a couple of dollars a year.

    The money I was referring to was from selling my domains.

    The money I make at NameCult and my lists here at NamePros is affiliate commissions .. not quite the same thing as parking.

    I suggest you take a look here to get more specific answers:

    In August I discovered namepros & went on a spree registering about 100 .coms till date. It’s been a learning curve. I’ve made my money back with a $1,999 sale in December which I didn’t expect..

    Actually I was going to price it at $250, but decided to make it $1,999 and it sold after 1 month..

    Thank you for useful information and for sharing with newbies as me. Which platform would you recommend for landers? Now I am using Dan and see views but only 1 or 2 offers. Used efty for a short time and had low offer. Never used Epik. Is it necessary to change landers or is better to focus on better names? I have a pretty good names also! List names on Afternic for fast transfer but within a year not received any offer or sale. But I often see your sales on Afternic when you post them and I can't understand what I am doing wrong! I started my second year in domain business and I really like it anyway!!!

    In 2019 i'm finally well out of red. However it's hard to count how much exactly i have earned, because i post all my tools and other expenses (except acquisitions of course) and my working time to my SEO domain trading. Few grands i think.

    I haven't been active for several years, only keeping a small portfolio. In early 2019 I sold a domain for $xxx.

    However, a December 2019 $xx,xxx sale has inspired me to have a more active 2020.

    I use dan for the names outside epik and use epik landing page for names at epik, slowly i'm shifting my whole portfolio at epik. Both dan and epik have nice landing pages with same commission so there is not much difference, only drawbacks that i see with dan are -
    not able to message without countering or rejecting an offer
    no option to accept offer if once refused
    they take regular holidays like new year or even on random weekends they go unavailable.
    not share contact details unless it is cancelled by buyer after agreement.
    I'm not sure about how efficiently they follow up to the potential buyer. two of the cancelled buyers told me they were not reached out properly.

    and although i like epik landing page there is some scope of improvement there too.

    anyday BETTER NAMES. of course goes without saying. there should be no doubt regarding this.

    For me efty spam fake offers was major problem but i have heard they have improved a lot from that point.

    it depends on what kind of domains you have, your quantity of domains and lastly your pricing of domains. specially last point of right pricing matters a lot.

    all the best
