DNSeattle took place on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at GoDaddy’s headquarters in Kirkland, Washington, just North of Seattle — and raised more than $5,000 to help find a cure for cancer!
More than 90 attendees met, networked and learned about domain name liquidity during this live panel session with Jeffrey Emerick (individual investor, Brand Bucket Ambassador), Dave Evanson (Sedo) and Joe Styler (GoDaddy).

Frank Schilling has been raving about it for months. Industry blogs have been discussing it for weeks.
Now’s your chance to see the Uniregistry Market for yourself and make your own decision.
Originally scheduled as an exclusive for DNAcademy PRO members, we’re sharing this tutorial given by the two people most responsible for building the new Uniregistry Market.
Learn how to setup landing pages (with or without advertising), how submitted inquiries become leads, how to use Uniregistry’s customer relationship management system (for free), and how you can take advantage of their exceptional brokerage team. We also ask how the data is treated, and whether you have to share information.

This tutorial walks you through a six-step domain name sales process to find, organize and contact the right decision maker at prospective companies.
Does it work?
Interviewee David Kelly used it on AccessiblityTesting.com and in less than a year had this $69 purchased domain name sold for $3,500.

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.

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.

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.

An investment in numeric or acronym domain names a year ago likely would have doubled or tripled your money today.
And these types of domain names are considered “liquid,” meaning they can be converted into cash quickly with a generally-accepted floor value.
Why are these types of domains so hot, and how close is the “investing bubble” to bursting? You’ll find out on today’s show.

On this Profitable Flips show, we talk to past Sherpa Ali Zandi, who only entered the industry in mid-2014 and continues to make big sales.
In the two weeks leading up to this show, Zandi sold 8 domains within 60 days of acquiring them — grossing more than $165,000, with a profit of more than $58,000.
