    How much would you pay for a domain investment guide that teaches you how to make a 6 figure income without having to outbound or wait for end-users?

    I would pay nothing for such book. My life experience so far is that if someone can make "6 figure without having to outbound or wait for end-users" they do not need to sell a book about it. If they want more money, they should start doing outbound, and wait for an end users, to shift their 6 figure income to 7 figure income, if the whole thing is real :)

    Plus there is a nice quote: “He who can does; he who cannot, teaches.”

    Saying that, I am myself writing book about new gTLDs, and various possibilities how to invest in them - but I certainly do not make any income-related promises there, because it is obvious that success depends on so many factors (for example pure luck is one of them), that it is impossible to write an universal guide for it for everyone.

    I will pay $0.
    'Cos no shortcut to experience, especially in domaining.
    NP has everything you need, with real-life examples, case studies and many, many more. And it's all free!

    You think DN Academy is a scam?
    You can be successful by taking bits and pieces from NP for sure, but I don’t think it’s organized in a way that most people can easily process and learn from. I know that because most newish people on this forum indicate that they are losing money or making very little.

    I haven’t used DN Academy or anything but I’m surprised more people don’t use that resource, as I’d imagine it’s organized very well.

    On a side note: I think most people think that to make money, you need to sell to end-users which is false.

    Trial and error, experience....unfortunately cannot be purchased. So I vote nothing or not much, not a personal knock just in general. I do think people have good teaching and pointers however and there are some very experienced, smart, individuals here like Federer, Yourself, and lolwarrior that are great guides.

    I’d imagine it must be very difficult to advise anyone on the purchase of new G’s without revealing ANY sales. People that are investing want to make money. They most likely won’t take advice from anyone that can’t prove their success.
    (No offense, just my observation)

    I also strongly disagree that you need luck to make a good income from “domaining”. There is various proven formulas that WILL yield success.

    Did I say that? I didn't say that. There must be more to DNAcademy than those two " withouts " .

    I do think (paid) guides/ courses etc are totally unnecessary.

    I paid over $50k for college & I could've succeeded without it.

    Let life & whatever industry you're involved in, teach you.

    P.S. Education is important.

    If education is important, what's wrong with paying for a "domainers" education from someone that has proven results, like a university professor for example?


    I don't see a problem with people paying to accelerate their progress.

    there is no problem with accelerating your progress.. in any way.. even by paying to do it...

    the problem is the 1 billion "accelerate your progress" internet scams.. 99% of which do nothing to accelerate your progress..

    so maybe all people here are saying by voting 0$ price.. is... understand your odds.. and risk %.. that this (or any new "accelerate your progress" offer on the internet) may end up being in the 1% and not in the 99%... and of course, there are good reasons why most "accelerate yoru progress/get rich quick" offers fail.

    cheers

    well, if the course offers a lot more than the 2 "withouts" in the title, then yes sure, go for it if you can afford it.

    Also, forget about the " 6 figure sale " thingi, that's misleading.

    Still, if you put in enough hours, researching, making mistakes & learning, you wouldn't need to pay for it.

    imo

    People get educated get out of college with degrees and land jobs at hardware stores (at least before recent times). Alot of variables like economic issues, job performance, markets etc dictate things. Same for domains....sometimes the market pays huge, others its stagnate.

    Hey Josh

    I think a book like this would have some merit especially when it comes from someone with a solid track record. That said I would focus only on a digital service and offer it around $29.95 per download. That seems to be the sweet spot for books.

    Now given it is not necessarily the price of a book we are talking about but the lesson in domaining and that itself could merit a price around the $99 mark.

    We live in an age of information and pricing above this point would probably prove difficult.

    I for one would have no problems recommending a well written source of information to a newbie in the business. In fact I think it's actually a pretty decent idea considering so many people don't know how to find the search button on namepros :xf.laugh:

    Well, that's arguable. And, I'm afraid, most members here will disagree with you.

    Nothing special. Same as in any other business. Only the fittest survive.

    I'm still waiting to hear from the horse's mouth. Let the "graduates" of such academies tell us their stories. You'll be surprised - not pleasantly, though.

    Time. That's the variable that you're undervaluing. There are going to be individuals who have the money to circumvent the time required to reach an adequate understanding of domain sales strategy by buying courses that accelerate their learning.



    I agree with this. There will always be extenuating circumstances that can cause people to fail, but, that doesn't remove the fact that for there will also be those who take full advantage and prosper regardless.

    Sounds like one of those video ads I keep seeing before YouTube videos where the guys telling you you can make a million if you follow his course. There's always a nice car in the backround (probably hired) and an enormous house (probably rented).

    As others have said, it sounds scammy (not saying it is as you have a proven track record) but that's how it sounds. What works for you isn't necessarily going to work for someone else.

    I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
    I would be more than willing to pay up to $ 100 for a good guide that promises or shows the real ways to make good number of domain names sales. If you are confident about the "CONTENTS" that you are writing, do not worry about the price, customers will come to you and buy.

    So basically it's a guide on how to flip to other domainers. There's certainly a lot of money there. But based on the for sale threads at NP- most domainers who are struggling don't seem to have a clue what they're doing and can't recognize a good or even decent domain from a bad one. Language and cultural barriers are mostly to blame, but even without these issues it takes a long time and a lot of trial and error to develop the right instincts that make domaining (seriously) profitable.

    Everybody want shortcuts in life but I don't think a guide can help make most domainers at NP make 5 or 6 figures. Also, if your guide becomes popular- you might be creating more competition and thus driving prices up for domainers in a market that's already becoming more and more expensive. Handregging, the cheaper route, is an art that requires mastering, a lot of trial and error and is also a numbers game. Selectively buying in the aftermarket at anything beyond closeouts or even at closeouts prices, which I'm guessing is what your guide would probably be about, should be avoided by most people because they don't have the capital and the basic understanding to buy the right names at the right prices. You can explain metrics and filters. You can send them to NameBio. It won't help most. They'll lose the shirt off their backs. So I think DN Academy is the place to go for shortcuts and a good foundation and the rest should be a result of hard work, trial and error and constant learning. My 2c worth.

    Why I should pay when i knew I can learn much here then in any book. Books only based on Bias and no one believe in them.

    I should tell everyone stay away from such book, all are sh*t by sh*t domainer.

    Not so sure I agree with your statements

    First: The guide would probably not be targeted at experienced domainers but in my opinion one is never too old to learn. I for one would probably purchase such a guide to see if there is anything written I am overlooking.

    Second: You have to look at the source or author of the guide. Josh is no slouch in the industry. In my dealings with him he has been one of the more knowledgeable domainers I have conversed with. Josh did not say he was going to be the author of the guide but we could only be so lucky if it turned out that he was authoring it.

    So the guide excludes outbound and inbound sales, but still promises to make you 6 figures?

    If something sounds too good to be true, ...
