    Mikes got a huge amount needed for renewals but his sales speak for themselves. He's doing something right.

    I think the real interest is how he identifies longtail business names and finds the best "owner"

    Perhaps he has a script, because if you think about the time to track down all potential buyers it would be very time consuming

    So from little background, you can see that

    WaveWholesale.com - According to whois it was bought by wavebroadband.com which is an Internet and Cable Operator that merged with RCN (so 10K is pennies for them).

    SaltandPepperHome.com - Salt&Pepper is Fashion For Your Home. 100k followers on FB | 33k on Instagram.

    Maybe not the best choices for these businesses, but he bought these knowing their real value. And to buy them at $20 a pop that some sweet deals. Congratz Mike Mann.

    I think he knew that saltandpepperhome had the .com.au and would need the .com to succeed if seeking to expand worldwide, the question is how does he get this info

    Simple.

    If you have the resources or just the knowledge, you can query the registries for the possible .coms that are dropping, or just look on a list of dropping lists and compare these to ccTLDs and other gTLDs.

    So all you need to do is to query around 20 TLDs or less. Now, a little check and you can see that .de, .com.au, .co.uk, .eu, .at, .ch, .be, and .nl are registered. Only .com.au, and .eu point to the actual company's website, and the .eu was reged back on Nov-2011.

    So essentially, you need to connect the dots that a .com for this company will be pretty much valuable.

    Well of course. He's a domainer with hundreds of thousands of domains. And if I'm not mistaken, he has a company or two. As I said, resources. This is the same way drop catchers operate most likely. They have the resources to check 100k+ domains a day and deduct which are valuable.

    Also, if you have the knowledge you can build these kind of tools journal, which is time consuming but will be worth your time. If you don't have the skill, but some cash you willing to spend on tools that already exist to make this research feasible, you make this process easier.

    Most people coming to this business (and it is a business) with the mindset that "I'll register this random domain for $10 and make a gold pot within a year." But, this tactic just doesn't work. You have to put some skill, brains, and / or money before you start investing.
