    Congrats on your sale (y)

    Interesting, what was your target market for outbound? Frankly, offhand, can't think of anything, hence the question (n)

    They used concierge on a small sale fees can easily add up to such levels

    Thanks...Yes. These are hard to sell but good single, short dictionary words in these proven gtld's always have chances to sell on good price.

    Exactly. .com owners bought the domain. They have .net version as well..

    Thanks. No deductions at all...That's extra happiness. lol...
    Yes... Thanks.. Will build my portfolio now.. Only got 19 domains.....
    Thanks :)

    Thanks Insha,,, Well i started with companies having "Exact" in their domain / company name and there are lots of them....
    Thanks :)
    Actually they paid around $238 as they have chosen escrow concierge services + they used paypal to pay escrow.com (Costs more). Otherwise the normal fee would be as less as $81....
    Thanks :)
    Thanks :)
    Thanks.. Hopefully :)

    Thanks a lot :)
    Thanks a lot :)... I am hopeful... Same wishes for you mate....

    Yeah... Actually for the first few months i had around 10 domains and normally you won't get inquires on such less number of domains (Unless you have some top domains)....
    Only started outbound in October and i can see the results......
    Thanks for your kind wishes.... Hope you sell your domains in very less time.. :)

    Thanks mate......I targeted companies having "Exact" in their domain/company name.... I found 100's of them.....

    I am not sure but all i know is they paid $238...
    I am also not sure when the domain will be transferred to the actual buyer.. Currently domain is transferred to escrow concierge and as per ICANN rules they can't transfer it to anyone for atleast 60 days.... Any idea?

    lol escrow is so full of bugs
    thats why I never use them
    belive it or not when I wrote my post I actualy went to check their page to calculate fees, and after entering $2500 it showed me $181
    no concierge option or nothing. just total $181!

    today I go and it works fine and shows 81$

    what a buggy place. yuk.

    cheers

    Nope. .com guys bought it. I never contacted the above mentioned company for some reasons.

    Thankfully my transaction was smooth. Did you have any bad experience with them in past?

    Thanks a lot.... Indeed.. :)

    Thanks... I like .org more than .net and won't hesitate to buy another single dictionary word.org

    Thanks.... I wish....lol... Not yet mate... Actually I have around 19 domains.... I will try to buy around 80 more domains this year....Hopefully :)

    Yes you are right... I liked it the most and wanted to renew it for like 5 years and wait for the right buyer.... However at start I had to sell something to keep things moving. I out reached for 10 of my domains and managed to sell only one i.e Exact.org.

    Thanks a lot dude..... All the best for 2017.... :)
    Thanks.. Great results indeed :)..... The .net is Parameter.net. The outreach isn't successful on this name.. Hope to sell it soon....

    Congrats Owais bhai. I'm very happy for you and you did great in terms of squeezing out 2.5K with your first sale. But honestly speaking, this domain was worth lot more but considering your first sale and situation, accepting 2.5K isn't bad.

    Wish you all the best in 2017 and hope you have many more and that too big sales.

    Thanks a lot Abdul Basit. Your guidance made it possible and I am very thankful for that. Yes the domain worth a lot but I had to sell it to keep things moving. Now with this money I can buy a couple more quality domains and I am hopeful that I will make more sales in 2017. Best wishes for you mate.

    The buyer probably would have paid a bit higher and you the seller would have taken less You both got a good deal on this.congrats ,PS dont get too loose with your profit if your gonna go out hunting ,try to catch something someone will want,times after big sales is when we pick up crap that is so so ,which leads to having to renew the stuff which seems like in the blink of the eye,try to stay away from the feast or famon part of domaining ,most people here including yours truly have been through .congràt. ben

    Thanks Ben.... I outreached potential buyers for around 10 of my domains and at that point I understood how difficult it is to sell a domain that people don't want or they have other alternatives.... I understood the value of a top domain that time... So yes this is on my mind and I will try to buy something that someone will want.... Otherwise it is wastage of money... On aftermarkets good domains are always out of my budget so trying to find some other ways to acquire good names....

    Thanks :)
    Hopefully ..... Wish you success in this new year as well....

    Thanks :)
