From a $111 Premium New gTLD Hand Registration to a $6,500 Sale in 12 Months – With Jon Arsenault

Anyone who says all new gTLDs are a waste of money is just plain wrong.

The riches are in the niches, and only those with knowledge, experience and skills to take advantage of the niches will succeed.

On this Profitable Flip show, we talk to Jon Arsenault, a part-time domain name investor who forgoes the traditional .com expired domain drop for opportunities in the new gTLDs.

In this episode, Arsenault shares valuable lessons learned on his domain name investing journey and his successful sale of Prop.bet for $6,500 – a purchase he made just 11 months prior for $111.

eBay Find: From $550 Acquisition to $10,000 Sale – With David Kelly

Usually only worthless domain names are found when searching on eBay. (At least that’s my experience.)

But David Kelly uses a secret tip to filter and find diamonds in the rough.

He shares that tip, as well as how he negotiated and purchased TopOffers.com for $550 – while normally the eBay platform only encourages you to just bid on stuff you want.

In addition, you’ll learn how Kelly both actively and passively markets his domains for sale, and how pricing it in one location led to this $10,000 sale.

From a $27 Expired GoDaddy Auction to $10,000 Sale – With Marty Pelletier

On this Profitable Flips, we talk to Marty Pelletier, a domain name investor who focuses on marijuana-related domain names.

From his personal experience, he understands the difference between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), two main ingredients in the marijuana plant.

While many other domain investors focus on THC, Pelletier has bought up many CBD domain names, one of which he picked up as an expired domain name for $27 that he sold for $10,000.

Learn how he’s managing his portfolio and is expanding into other positively trending areas like virtual reality and drones.

Portfolio Flip: .IO Domains Return 100% ROI with 23% Sell-Through Rate – With Mark Levine

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.
