    Domaining isn't my primary business so no issues if sale don't happen for a month or two.

    If you do this for a living and you need monthly income, then you normally have to sell a few names at wholesale prices.

    That's why it's very important to own liquid names.

    Just 1 reason why I advise most newbies to invest in 4L .coms.

    The more quality names you have, the more sales come to you.

    Does that include no inquiries and/or offers? I have not had a sale in a while, but I have had several negotiations, many inquiries, and a lot of low-ball offers.

    So I constantly try to work on my negotiation skills (keep text files for replies to offers so I can copy/paste them when replying to inquiries/offers from my MarketPlace).

    I also work on my marketplace. Was deciding between Efty and ToughDomains. I decided to renew with Efty for another year. But I might switch If there's no new release soon (I keep hearing they are working on several of the features that have been requested).

    And I have started to consolidate registrars. I had domain names at 6 different registrars, so as names expire at some registrars, I am transferring them to two of my favorites. My ultimate goal will be only two registrars in the end...

    Regards,
    DN

    You can basically see it at my MarketPlace (in signature) based on the number of names per category (since they currently only allow a domain name to be in one category only). NOTE: I don't own all of the names -- about 75-100 names belong to a few friends of mine who are just using my market place while they get going in domaining...

    That reminds me, I need to categorize my names better because as of now I put most of them into the "Brandable" category (I know I have some names that should go into other categories instead).

    So there's another thing I can do to keep me motivated (or at least better organized). Efty recently released a new Bulk Editor - so I'm going to play with that to see if I can move names around into a better category. Oh, and I also need to clean up some names I have listed that I let expire/drop (I let about 30 names expire so far this year -- so I should go in and remove them from my marketplace)

    Regards,
    DN

    The initial anxiety for a sale vanishes after a point..surprisingly i believe in my inventory and will not sell anything cheap (nothing below $2000)
    Fortunately, renewals not an issue and i have become more disciplined by not being reg happy:xf.smile: else would have bought 1000 by now.
    The real danger would be on the day of my first sale..hope i will be able to digest success and stay disciplined:xf.grin:

    Same answer as this, selling domains is just a hobby for me. If i make a sale then great i just stick the money to one side and keep my eyes open for other names i like. If i dont sell anything for a while then atleast i got enough to still cover renewals.

    I constantly think of ways to tweak anything I'm doing to make it better. Most of my sales are passive / inbound anyway so while I may not have a sale everyday I certainly am working on new ideas to improve all around. And also a lot of reading and studying the market.
