    Michael, you mean you paid around $ 6,000 for advertisements for your domains on Sedo and Flippa?

    some domains got sold on Sedo ( cause of Showcase ) but mainly this was a huge investment
    i really thought to get more attraction or domains sold...

    i still believe in Showcase but these are to expensive

    The most talented post title I ever seen. Envy envy :xf.smile:

    The most important thing is to learn from your mistakes. Be more mindful about your future decisions.

    “Something important I have learned is patience, and turning each failure into a learning experience. ..Instead of calling them "failures" I call them "lessons". Instead of saying, "I failed at that," I say, "I learned from that." Each failure has taught me something incredibly valuable and by recognizing this I can see the hand of God in my life in situations where most people would feel abandoned by Him.”

    At one point in my life I invested like $50,000 to end up with a bloated non working project. All my savings went into the thin air. But has that stopped me from forging into new ventures? Heck no. I'm walking again, just like a boss for the next hurdle along the bumpy road :xf.smile:

    I only ever bought the domain showcase for $49 on Flippa as it was pretty good value for exposure but they seem to have changed it now so the name is only on the front page for about a third of the time it used to be. Very sneeky of Flippa in my opinion.

    It needs a site like domainlore.uk but for .coms where they only ever have 50 or so domains on sale at a time. No extras are offered/needed as all domains are on one of just two pages.

    As for domain selling: Buying and selling 20+ LLL .coms for dirt cheap on Ebay in mid 2000. I made over $100 profit on each one, but that was so ridiculously low compared to what they are going for now.

    Thank you but you paid $39 for one month right? and did you sell it for one time or you have to pay several times to sell it?
