Labeled as offers in Domain Selling and Domain Sales, started by DeliDomains, Aug 7, 2019
It's definitely not about bragging of ghost sales!
The other day I added up most of the offers I turned down over the years on regfee or next-to-regfee domains (goes into the 5-figures) and I kick myself when I see these domains either still sitting in my portfolio and my enthusiasm about them has dwindled (I matured as an investor) or some of them being lost (accidental drops, etc)
I think about how I could've used those profits to get even better domains than the ones I was holding.
Lesson learned. Unless a domain is liquid/obvious value way higher than the offer price, take the money and upgrade your domains. $500 hard profit now beats the *possibility of a $1000 profit 5 years from now. $5000 hard profit now beats the possibility of $8000 profit 5 years from now, and even then it's still a gamble.
If anyone reading this now wants to treat domain investing as a real business instead of a gamble/lotto-hobby, realize you cannot and will not hit a home run every single time. Every $xxx offer you turn down for $xxxx, that $xxxx may not ever come. Cash is king. Take your profits and feel good about it. The universe rewards turnover.
Mostly just providing tangible value to other users.
Completely agree with you here, but sometime I like to push the boundaries, but that just me.
This depends entirely on how capable you are on valuing your name, else its all a gamble.
Why do you want to embarrass yourself further by just talking about ghost sales...
So : was that "phoenix" ?
It was that easy to find out.....wasn't it,?
You're not as clever as you think you are.
There goes you probability down the drain,,, Im the one in 8680 who sold a .group for over $4000..
This is completely true. In 5 years I spent about $7,500 on gTLDs. $0 in sales. Recently I bought GreatBrand//com for $7,500 on a 2 year payment plan. I would rather take the money I save on domains that are not making money and buy another Ultra Premium name even if it is on multi-year payment plan.
Learn to accept they are others who are better than you are with out any badges.....
I just checked the website on your sold .xyz domain name, actually that is a pretty nice developed site
Well, I do not think DeliDomains needs to mention any name here, I personally still derive value also from this type of posts. He got "group disliked", which I think is unnecessary, but for each their own.
But you see, you were able to sell your 3 worder in .xyz for 3k....so I assume you can understand that other's are also selling their names, and I would leave it up to them what they share. I personally can tell lot only from checking the porftolio of others, I do not necessarily need an information from them about sales (and definitely not about their offers, or "offers" ... if you know what I mean)
It's just not you! Oh, and good english!
So was I right?
Nice domain man. And at least you'll know if ever you needed some quick cash, you'll be able to get *something* for it right away and it all comes with a $8 - $9 annual renewal fee, verses hundreds/thousands of dollars worth of recurring fees on risky domains. Asset > Liability.
Once again I am right...I used my "a-brain", lol.
And this is lesson for others as well: learn to extract infomation, even when it is not delivered for you on a silver plate..do not be so called "lazy domainers"
There are so many people here who said this post was a waste of time.... but they are all still here reading thru each and every post.. I wonder how they value their time....
Do you wanna have a go at the .graphics?
It's ok, I will leave it as an mental exercise for others (providing they know how to do it)
I regularly receive various fake bids exactly on this platform.
None of us had a problem extracting information. That was never the point.
Regarding nTLD aftermarket overall...
My current average result is $1K+ per domain, sold 13 non-premium domains as of today.
That's good. Do you outbound these or just wait for a buyer?
Just 2 of 13 were parked with BINs on Sedo.
