Drop Shipping for Domain Name Entrepreneurs

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy new year from DomainSherpa.com.

One of our interviews had to be pulled down for legal reasons, so I’ve decided to take many lessons learned and couple them with internal research to create the DomainSherpa eGuide entitled Drop Shipping for Domain Name Entrepreneurs.

Why Drop Shipping for Domain Name Entrepreneurs?

Imagine a situation in which you could run a business like Best Buy or Target, BUT you would:
• Not have to buy products to display to customers.
• Not have to maintain any inventory.
• Have an easier time finding and training sales people.
• Serve the world population of interested consumers.
• Have significantly higher profit margins.

Drop shipping offers just that, which is why businesses that utilize a drop-shipping model are of interest to many entrepreneurs.

Case in point: On April 3, 2012, Inc. magazine published a special report entitled “Wayfair’s Road to $1 Billion,” in which they detailed how niche websites can sell millions of products – online only – and drop ship directly to consumers without purchasing any inventory or stocking any shelves.

Sorry if you’re checking in late, but we’ve removed the free download option from this ebook. Thanks for reading DomainSherpa. Follow us, fan us and/or join our newsletter list to be notified if we offer it again in the future.

    Hi Michael,

    +1’d it but didn’t get option to download.

    I have been visiting your site for the past year now and I think its great. I’m quite “green” when it comes to domaining but I’m learning all the time. I’ve just recently built a mini site, http://wirelessvideosurveillance.net which I could do with some pointers on to improve as it doesn’t have much internet presence and I’m also in the process of building a directory site which is a bigger project and alot more substantial, http://edinburghlawfirms.co.uk.

    Thanks for all your hard work with domainsherpa. Its an excellent place to come for knowledge and inspiration.


    1. Thanks, William. Your PDF should be waiting for your in your inbox.

      I hope DomainSherpa continues to educate and motivate you in 2013. Best of luck on your ventures!

    Thank you so much for your valuable insights, interviews and hardwork throughout the years. Your interviews have been such an incredible ‘free’ resource for me and I appreciate all your hardwork and efforts as I tenaciously cling onto to my domains..believing and hoping that one day I will strike it rich! I could not download drop shipping info, I am not a fb fan, so I would appreciate it if you could email it to me.
    May the spirit of the season and the new year find you and family blessed in health and wealth as you have blessed others.

  59. thanks Michael Cyger

    I admire your ability to navigate the infested waters of sharkdom, that is the domaining business, an eclectic cut-throat gauntlet survived by few.

    For what it’s worth, “it takes money to make money.”

    There will be no domaining business without significant investment of money, success in proportion to initial outlay. No surprises here? Not the bill of good I first was pitched when starting a short three years ago.

    Why don’t you tackle the “All the good .coms are taken” question. I mean seriously. If you can, with a straight face, say that the “domaining business” hasn’t been GUTTED by the first to the trough, and demonstrate somehow, well then, there, you may have something.

    5 years with a minimum of $50,000.00, minimum is needed. There is no get rich quick here, and in the “domaining business” an added gift of competing with and against a group, domainers, that are intelligent, competitive, computer savvy, viscous, vindictive, egocentric workaholics all playing with a loaded deck of anonymity furnished in cyberspace.

    How many times have you been ripped off by parking companies and software snake oil cyber gypsies?

    Huh? Ah, yes, the cost of doing business….. hmmmm

    Thank you for your hard work.

    Robert McLean

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your thought.

      Regarding the 5 years and $50k comment, I think it all depends on your goals. If you’re just dabbling or domain investing as a hobby and you want to buy domains on the drop for $20 or $69, then I think you can flip them for 2-10x, depending on the niche and demand.

      There are plenty of examples of successful entrepreneurs listed in our archives. Watch any of the Adam Dicker interviews and you can see that there are still plenty of opportunities without having to purchase domain names for $10-$50k.

      Best of luck and happy new year.


  60. Zonqor says:

    Thank you for a wonderful year of information that you brought to us, and a Merry Christmas to you Michael and your family.

    1. Thanks, Zonqor. To you and yours too.
