I had once one of the Flippa guys writing me that I need to advertize more my domain Ijust listed at Flippa to attract more offers... Well, I realized we are doing it all wrong. We should use Flippa to lead buyers to our domains with no commision!... You pay Flippa at listing time, you pay Flippa is you make a sale and if you have a good domain that you think will sell big, you pay for a promotion on their first page or domain's first page and you compete with the "Editor's pick" which is 90% of the times their own domains...Some domain gets fair value in flippa. I wonder what they do to promote their auction. I am fairly new at domaining & still learning. How have you succeeded with flippa & how? It will be very helpful if you share.
Even My first sale was from flippa..And journey Begun...My first journey to domaining started from flippa. I had a domain name. It was about to expire and trust me I didn't have a penny to renew that domain name. I didn't wanna get that domain go easily. And at same time I heard that you could make some cash by selling your domain.
Then I started searching over internet. And found flippa. Flippa was like hot spot at that time. So, I listed a domain name at auction. I didn't pay any listing fees over there. I don't have any idea on how I listed there for free. It was like around 7 day auction and I had one and only bid. It was $50 bid and the bidder won the domain name.
I was kind of excited and like wow!!!! such a easy cash, hahaha. I had hand registered the domain name and sold without doing anything. Quite easy right? Then I started registering domain names with the cash I made through the sales on flippa.
Here's the main thing, I started it because I could make some cash. And what I did was hand registered few domain names and listed again in flippa. I used to appraise other domain names to earn some point to list the domain names on auction for free and promote my auctions. But after my first sale I never had a single sale even using the upgrades and so on. Then I realized that was my luck.
And I think listing on flippa is like luck. Flippa is place where you find domainers less and SEO pro's more. So, if you have any domain name that has good SEO value on it then you are good to go ahead. But every thing is luck over there.
