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.

I stumbled across Park.io, a drop-catching service for .io domain names, and purchased PHP.io for $1,655, thinking that it would be a great domain to sell on the technology- and entrepreneurial-focused marketplace Flippa.com.
Within 30 days of my original purchase, the domain name sold for $6,000. I invited Park.io founder Mike Carson on the show to help let you in on my secret, even though I’d rather keep this terrific resource all to myself.
