    Hello everyone,

    Just had my first big sale in my domaining journey! Wanted to share it with everyone here on NP :)

    It was a domain I had purchased for $15 when I was waiting at the bar at some birthday party.
    The funny part is that it was a typo... and I hadn't realized that until I clicked purchase and checked out on Godaddy. So I told the bartender to make my drink a double since I had just wasted $15 for a bad domain.

    But... after further research, it turns out that multiple companies are using the exact same name (very minor variations) so I naturally got excited and listed it on Godaddy as make an offer.

    Got my first offer for $20 and thought this is all it could be worth... but I decided to counter with $2000.

    A couple of hours later, the $1000 offer comes in :)

    And that's how I made my first $1000!

    Thank you to everyone here on NP for the advice and the unlimited well of knowledge. I will keep learning from minds like you and hopefully make more sales $!

    :)

    Goes to show that even low ball offers can turn into something great. A perfect example of why responding to all offers is a good move - Congrats!!

    The category was Marijuana Brandable domains! As far as how long it took to sell it was around 9 months. It was a passive sale on GD make an offer. I did not counter the 2nd offer for higher because I was afraid I would lose the sale (not sure if it's a mistake on my part) so I decided to push it to auction hoping that more bidders will come, but that did not happen and I ended up selling it for the original $1000.

    I did not counter the $1000, I just pushed to auction.

    I don't agree that this thread is a total waste of time. It's a nice story and can be taken as a bit of inspiration for many. Since there are no name or other proof included, just take it as "around-domaining fiction".

    OP, congrats anyway!
