    Am a month into domain industry with 20 domain in my portfolio but I noticed most of my domain get view daily at undeveloped but no sale or offer yet.

    What could be reasons for no sale or offer?

    Is my price too high ?

    I'll appreciate any information that could lead to sale .
    Thanks

    Geos usually need some outbound emails to sell. Read the forum and you'll see some good stuff that should help.

    well, if the industry average percent to sell a name is 2% per year. and you have 20 names - statistically it would take about 2 and half years to sell a name.

    That's only assuming you have really good names - crap names will never sell

    Most in here in first year have no idea so i would assume the views are your own. If it all was a simple as one listing selling domains would be simple. Your expecting the direct type in and your domain to be first choice with your chosen method and the domain was available last 20 years. Unless your on the latest technology keywords this method is wishful thinking on newly registered domains.

    If i had sold a name my first month of domaining i would have surprised my own self, expectations of domainers these days are unrealistic IMO. If it was just that easy to buy a name and sell it, well, that is what i call effortless money, which does not exist, that is a dream world, it would be the same as money growing on trees, pigs flying through the sky, money for nothing and the chicks for free lol.

    Eg Your watching a news affair program on TV and someone has had their vision effected by virtual reality and they called it "virtual blindness" so you register the domain in case it becomes a bigger thing.
    Eg someone invents a roll up TV you buy the domain rolluptv.com when they are busy trying with their parent brand.

    Thanks @ X, my expectations is to start slow and grow in depth knowledge of the industry. The reasons why I ask those questions is to checkmate myself and see if am doing things right or wrong. Any advice and info will be use to further my knowledge of the industry.

    What made you think domains would sell in 1 month 😂 ? Those geo ones need outbound or sell them here. My first major sale was 6 months in and part of that was sheer luck. Study, figure out what is good and what is not. It takes awhile. I doubt the learning ever ends as the market changes.

    If you think domaining is tough, wait - you ain't seen nothing yet. 1 month is not enough to measure the full scale of disappointment that is expecting you.

    Those views are mostly fake. One of the drawbacks of that platform. Try add google analytics and you'll see

    How do I set up Google analytics? Is it for user profile or every single domain in my portfolio?

    I dont think its has any value, Instead I would use "Make offer" and remove the price from Undeveloped landing page.

    I also list my domain on every marketplace with maximum of BIN, Listing name on SEDO, Godaddy and Afternic could bring you some sales as well but not in a month (though its possible if you are too lucky) .

    Have listed my domain at Afternic and Undeveloped. Can you list domain from another registrar on Godaddy marketplaces?

    You sound like you are on the right track, take it slow and build your portfolio wisely , if you are solely looking to be a domain name reseller, you will need a fair amount of capital to begin flipping names.

    You will need to be purchasing inventory via domain auction houses and ect, flipping and restocking inventory is quite the task, it becomes a vicious circle to be able to profit and restock
