    No, around 800-900 will get renewed - but that's still a large cost.

    Same way you collect any other domains: buy or register them over time.

    It would be interesting to see which of the 2 .CO models produced a higher rate of overall profitability:
    1 - Closing sales in the $1.5K-$2.5K range (w/either "Make offer" or BIN)
    2- Lower-range BIN expectancy (ex. $500-$749 range)


    When playing the sub-$5K game, it is not always straightforward to know which model to implement on a higher-level:
    Less sales for higher amounts (1), or more lower-range sales (2) that add up fast over time.

    You read my mind Luc - great question. I've been using Option 2 for the last year, but will be going with Option 1 ($1.5k-$2.5k) in 2021. Will be interesting to see the difference.

    Thanks @alcy - didn't buy anything recently, am switching up tactics for now and skipping the promos. There's still money to be made, but I'd like to use my time/money to explore a few other things too.

    Congratulations :)

    Btw, can you or can anyone please throw me some light about why this domain got sold? I even googled "Sensor Print" and couldn't find any proper exact search terms too. So got confused what's the reason for picking up this name! :)

    Hi @Avinash S

    Thank you. The exact reason for the buyer is unknown to me, but you can read more about "sensor printing" technologies in this article, https://www.techbriefs.com/component/content/article/tb/supplements/st/features/articles/37659

    That's great Bob,

    Perhaps you could do some research and write a blog about whether certain actions the we take like registering a domain, changing name servers, changing sales or parking platforms, or even for a domain getting too close to expiration date or entering the redemption period could trigger a certain new level of exposure and attention for that domain.

    There have been many cases lately where people got an offer shortly after registering a domain or adding it to a sales platform, I guess it might also be due to the fact that some platforms show the newly added domains separately and let you filter your search by that criteria.

    IMO

    What are the rest of the names you bought?
    I am glad it paid off. One sale covered the cost. This is what I like about the promos and some people always scoff at:)

    if only domaining was as simple as regging 500 co names on 1 or 2 usd promo... and being guaranteed at least money back

    well..its not that simple... ;)

    Regging 500 good or at least half decent .co names on a promo, though... That would make domaining very simple :) Too bad I can't find even 100 such available names during a promo, let alone 500 :)

    exactly it... I mean how many domainers can keep regging 100s of promo co names til there is nothing left worth regging... and that's what happened with co..coupled with their premium invention.. but hey maybe this strategy was worth something few yrs back...

    .co became very popular these days, it's dirt cheap so risk is low and ROI is very high (mine is around 300% for handregs). So it's worth it, for me at least, but it's just a well-paying hobby that doesn't require more than 10 minutes per day. The problem is that it is extremely difficult to scale this business model up. You can increase the time you spend on finding available names, but if there are x number of decent names, you can't find x*2 even if you have unlimited time, imagination, tools and resources. Not to mention that the more names you register the crappier they are.

    Premium .co-s don't make things easier, I agree, but maybe it's not a bad thing. If you're brave enough and you're a .co expert, you can go for it, and there aren't too many competitors.

    I'm not that brave :D I mean, let's say I buy the premium .co-s at the cheapest registrar, Sav.com, for $100 each. Let's say I buy 10, that's $1000. Let's say the STR is 5% for such great names, so you have to wait for 2 years to sell 1 out of 10. That means you have to renew the names for another year, so your total cost is $1200. In order to reach a decent return on investment, you need to sell this one domain for a lot more than $1200.

    Of course, numbers look much better on the long run. But it is a very risky business model. You only have a chance if 1) you're an expert of .co domains 2) you are very patient 3) .co keeps being popular among endusers. But you have to consider that you might spend the same amount on different kind of less risky domains, maybe spend $1000 on 400 .co handregs (my average reg fee was $2.4 in the last year), or register brandable .coms (reg and renewal fees are much lower than premium .co-s while the enduser price is around the same), some decent or one CVCV-type 4L, etc.
