  • VIDEO: How a Fishmonger Lost $300K Learning the Domain Name Ropes – With Andrew Rosener

    How a Fishmonger Lost $300K Learning the Domain Name Ropes – With Andrew RosenerWe all lose money when first starting out in domain name investing, because part of the process of figuring things out inevitably includes buying worthless or undesirable domain names.

    The same was true for today’s guest.

    But instead of just buying 100 or so worthless domain names, he invested in a “domain name education” that cost him about $300,000 over three years until he realized what he was doing wrong.

    Today, he runs one of the most successful domain name brokerages. Listen in as Andrew Rosener shares what he learned from his expensive “education.”

    How to Sell a Domain Name Redux – With Adam DickerEveryone loves to hear about people selling a domain name for hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. But a sales price of that magnitude is the exception, not the rule.

    In 2013, Sedo transacted more than 37,000 domain name sales on their marketplace. The average price was almost $1,900, with a median price of about $600. The fact is, most domain names sell in the range of $100 to $10,000.

    To discuss his personal portfolio statistics, I invited back to the show past Domain Sherpa Adam Dicker, who shares his strategy and roll-up-your-sleeves tactics to sell three- and four-figure domain names.

  • VIDEO: Using Estibot to Proactively Find and Contact Buyers for Your Domain Name

    Using Estibot to Proactively Find and Contact Buyers for Your Domain NameIf you own a domain name, getting the highest offer possible generally requires waiting for a potential end user of that domain name to contact you. In some cases, you may be waiting years, or you may never hear from the perfect end user.

    The alternative to waiting is to proactively reach out to potential buyers who may be interested in purchasing the domain name. While it may not maximize your sales price, it could produce a sale and cash flow for your business or investment.

    In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Estibot Domain Lead Generator & End-User Finder Tools to find and contact potential end users. Also included in this tutorial are the real results from trying to sell four domain names to potential buyers using the Estibot tools.

  • VIDEO: Do Not Register Trademark-infringing Domain Names – With David Weslow

    Do Not Register Trademark-infringing Domain Names – With David WeslowHow risky could registering a $10 domain name be?

    Every day new domain name investors and speculators overlook the financial risk associated with registering a domain name that infringes on an existing trademark – a mistake that could cost them more than $100,000. And it’s happening at an increasing rate with the new top-level domains available for registration.

    If you’re a domain name broker or an experienced investor that regularly receives emails from new investors asking for help or valuation – and the portfolio is full of trademark-infringing domain names – this is the video to refer them to.

    If you’re a new domain name investor or speculator, learn how to avoid the mistake that has the potential to financially bankrupt you.

  • VIDEO: Strategy, Marketing and Leadership Lessons for New gTLD Registries and Investors

    Strategy, Marketing and Leadership Lessons for New gTLD Registries and InvestorsMany believe the .CO registry is the “poster child” for how a new top-level domain answers all the above questions and is succeeding in the minds of individuals, businesses and entrepreneurs. That makes the top-level domain a better investment than many, if not most, other top-level domains other than .com.

    With new gTLDs going live every week for the upcoming couple of years, this interview contains critical information that both new registry operators and investors alike should familiarize themselves with.
