Hi all, I've joined this forum 11 months ago and that is when I started with domaining. At the start, I had a lot of dumb questions ( well, all of us have dumb questions when we start new things ) but after reading a lot of guides I felt ready to start investing. I did a lot of dumb purchases, I hand regged CroatiaEscorts.com!! LOL. I bought 012n.com for like $100 on Godaddy auctions and those are the best ones, I did three more handregs that I'm too embarrassed to even share here. ( Mind you at the time I did those purchases I thought I hit the jackpot ) While doing those handregs I kept reading and looking at past sales. the 2 threads that helped me the most were Your Purchase of the day ( not handregs ) and the Reported completed domains sales. I've started investing in domains I thought will have a good chance of being sold, with the first one being FindAdvisors/com that I purchased on Godaddy auctions for $255 and sold within 6 months for $2795 ( If I remember correctly ) on BB. Also when I started receiving offers for domains I was afraid to negotiate so I just accepted the initial offers, now I have like 5-10 offers I rejected! And then I did another sale with a $200 profit, and then another one. and then I did a private acquisition of HowToBuyCrypto/com for like $130 and sold for $900 not so long after, which gave me the idea to hand reg all of the available Bitcoin/Crypto related terms with over 500 searches a month and do outbound, which was a great success. So far my DAN's dashboard shows $2,959 in sales, and all of the domains that were sold cost me $530. I also sold a domain on Afternic 4 days ago for $988 that I've purchased for $12 on Godaddy Auctions ( waiting for the money to hit my PayPal and then I'll report the sale ) I currently have around 100 domains, which 20 of them are .CO I purchased for $.99 each and another 10-15 are handreggs. and 1/3 of the domains I have are listed on BB + SH. I'm having fun and making money at the same time, is there anything better than that? Hoping to have more sales soon! and I invite you to share your first X of domaining experience, too! Thanks!
