If you have domain names or a whole domain name portfolio that you want to sell, this is the category to visit and learn from. Topics include domain name marketplaces, email outreach, landing pages, and much more.
Domain name hacks are words and phrases that span the dot and make use of the top-level domain extension as part of the word. Startu.ps, ta.gs and k.im are a few examples.
But can you make any money investing in domain name hacks?
Today’s guest can, and in this interview he shares his investment strategy, valuation technique and go-to market tactics for generating $100,000 in sales per year.

Last year we interviewed Christian Calvin about two profitable flips ($81 to $12,500 and $99 to $9,000, both within just months of acquisition).
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.

The domain? Ocean.com.

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.

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.
