In Profitable Flips, skilled domain name investors share all the details of how they bought low and sold high, turning a profit of at least four figures. Hosted by Michael Cyger.
Anyone who says all new gTLDs are a waste of money is just plain wrong.
The riches are in the niches, and only those with knowledge, experience and skills to take advantage of the niches will succeed.
On this Profitable Flip show, we talk to Jon Arsenault, a part-time domain name investor who forgoes the traditional .com expired domain drop for opportunities in the new gTLDs.
In this episode, Arsenault shares valuable lessons learned on his domain name investing journey and his successful sale of Prop.bet for $6,500 – a purchase he made just 11 months prior for $111.

Usually only worthless domain names are found when searching on eBay. (At least that’s my experience.)
But David Kelly uses a secret tip to filter and find diamonds in the rough.
He shares that tip, as well as how he negotiated and purchased TopOffers.com for $550 – while normally the eBay platform only encourages you to just bid on stuff you want.
In addition, you’ll learn how Kelly both actively and passively markets his domains for sale, and how pricing it in one location led to this $10,000 sale.

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.

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.

This Profitable Flip might never have happened if George Adu wasn’t always thinking one step ahead and anticipating the customer’s needs.
Because of his customer focus, Adu’s $217.50 purchase on eBay.com led to a $15,500 sale about 12 months later.
Learn how his tactics (one of which was rather risky) turned into not only a sale, but also an ongoing relationship that continued after the sale due to the trust he built with his customer.

In any investment, profit is made on the buy. Meaning, if you can buy an asset low enough you’ll always make a profit.
Profits can be oversized when luck enters the picture, as was the case when Daniel Levi purchased PirateShip.com before selling it only 21 days later to a company specializing in software for batch shipping.

On this Profitable Flips show, we talk to Christian Calvin, who entered the industry in late-2013 and dismissed the advice of an experienced and proven domain name investor.
From $80.55 to $12,500 in four months with RaiseTheMoney.com, and from $98.55 to $9,000 in less than one month with SuiteSeats.com – buying and selling brandable domain names. He continues to focus on brandables, and is targeting a mid- to high-five figure profit margin in 2015 for his business, PlentyOfBrands.com.
