On this Profitable Flips, we talk to Marty Pelletier, a domain name investor who focuses on marijuana-related domain names.

From his personal experience, he understands the difference between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), two main ingredients in the marijuana plant.

While many other domain investors focus on THC, Pelletier has bought up many CBD domain names, one of which he picked up as an expired domain name for $27 that he sold for $10,000.

Learn how he’s managing his portfolio and is expanding into other positively trending areas like virtual reality and drones.

$1.5M and 7 Years Later, Noah Kagan Owns the Killer Brand – Sumo.com – for His 8-Figure Business

Lots of companies make eight figures per year and generate a high profit margin. But those that upgrade to a premium domain name can see even greater success and market dominance.

Consider:
* Slack used to be SlackHQ.com.
* Facebook used to be TheFacebook.com.
* Dropbox used to be GetDropbox.com.
* Mint used to be MyMint.com.

Those companies that buy a premium domain name are saying something about their company to their customers and the industry. According to Noah Kagan, they’re saying they have status, they’re going to last the test of time, and they have a “seriousness of business.”

Learn how Kagan persisted through seven years of negotiations to finally own Sumo.com, and how his financing creativity finally got the deal done.

Turn Your Portfolio into Cash Flow or Leverage Your Domain Purchase for a Higher ROI – With Vince Harasymiak

There are a few companies in the domain name industry that provide financial services.

One of them, Domain Capital, provides financing so you can buy premium domain names with only a fraction of the capital required to make the purchase – as long as you can service the loan.

Domain Capital can also provide cash based on the value of your portfolio to grow your business.

Listen in to learn how these “hard money” types of loans are structured, including over what period and at what annual percentage rate; how a borrower’s credit worthiness factors in; what happens if you default; and what types of domain names can be financed.

Portfolio Flip: .IO Domains Return 100% ROI with 23% Sell-Through Rate – With Mark Levine

Portfolio Flip: .IO Domains Return 100% ROI with 23% Sell-Through Rate – With Mark Levine

On this Profitable Flips show, we talk to Mark Levine, a newer individual investor who purchased a series of .io domain names that – as a portfolio – have yielded a 100 percent return on his investment in less than a year with a 23 percent sell-through rate.

Given that most domain name investors agree that a 2-3 percent sell-through rate is typical, 23 percent is unbelievable.

Listen in as we learn from Levine what types of .io domain names do or don’t sell, what types of end users are buying them, how he sets retail pricing, and how his .io investing tactics are going to change in 2017.

Today we learn how Calvin has sold more than 200 domain names (a 17 percent portfolio sell-through rate), garnered more than $200,000 in revenue, and profited by more than $60,000.

You’ll also hear how he selects his brandable domain names, what his process is for managing domain names, how he optimizes his sales process, how he’s trying to liquidate 30 to 50 domains per month at NameJet to right-size his portfolio, and why he turned down a six-figure offer to sell his entire portfolio.
