Hi, I am a complete newbie in domain flipping. there are several newbie questions i really need some answer. I am sorry if these questions are stupid or you have answered oh so many times before. 1. I understand if I want to buy an expired domain, you have to backorder it. Either it is through Godaddy or other domain services. The way i understand it is that you make a request to backorder a expired domain I like at let say Godaddy, I pay the backorder fee, and Godaddy will negotiate to the owner on my behalf. So my questions are, a) does that means there is a chance of godaddy fail to get that domain for me? and I might pay the money and get nothing back? b) normally, how big of a chance to backorder a domain with success? is it risky? c) if i successfully backordered a domain? what are the steps? do I have to pay more money? 2. Let say I found a domain that is good. And I put it in like a marketplace for auctions. There are countless of domains in the auctions, and no matter how good the domain is, there is a big chance that it will just buried under the sea since no one discovered them. My questions on this issue are: a) Do I need to find ways to promote my domain? b) what are the ways to promote? c) how important promotion is in domain flipping market? does the quality of the domain does most of the work or promotion does a huge part of either i make sales or not?
