Think you can only make money in domain name investing if you got into the industry 5, 10 or 20 years ago? Think again.
Today’s guest entered the industry about a year ago and earned enough profit in that time for a down payment on his lakefront home (where he spoke with me for this interview). And he still owns 189 LLLL .com domain names.
But this is no “get-rich-quick scheme.” To the contrary, his first flip was $15 to $45. He then repeated that process more than 100 times as the market increased.

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.

There. I said it.
If you’re like most of us, when you identify a potential domain name buyer or seller, you might reach out a handful of times. But after hearing “no” once or twice, you move on.
Broker Joe Uddeme, however, knows that success requires on average eight to 10 contacts per buyer or seller. In fact, one of his sales took 120 contacts to close the deal. If you’re making only a few contacts, chances are you’re quitting too soon.
Judging by the $10 million Uddeme did in deals last year, persistence pays off.
Learn what Uddeme does to close sales, how he does it, how often he does it, and how you can do it too. Plus, there’s a ton of inspiration in this show that you don’t want to miss.

Do you wonder how Frank Schilling prices domain names? What criteria he uses to value domains? And how much art versus science is involved?
