    Eric,

    Congratulations —

    which names have you acquired this summer?

    per the Domain Sherpa interview, you considered buying Television.com (great name) —

    continued success

    ida sold zabber for $6800 so you got the extra $200 outta that.

      I am not sure what you mean. I sold Zabber.com for $500.

    Congrats
    Seems like you doing a better job than most professional brokers.

    I bet you will make more money just brokering.

      I really don’t do anything to market/sell my domains. People just email me because I am the owner.

    Just curious if you emailed end users directly or they contacted you first. Most names are .COMs but many are brandables with low GAKT search volume.

    1. admin Post author

      All those sales are either to end users who emailed me directly, or through brokers like Sedo.com. I would estimate only 10% of my sales are through brokers. None are ones where I emailed the end user first.

    Looking at the domains you sold, I wonder about the registration process.. besides a few, I don’t really see a pattern or specific industry and most are very random brandables.. Are these hand reg, drops, script? Care to share how you mostly find / buy your domains? or what turns you on when you see a domain..( you know what I mean..)

    1. admin Post author

      I hand registered most of them in the 1990s and the rest in the early 2000s. A few meaningless and lesser quality domains like zabber.com are probably ones that were part of a portfolio of 2000 domains I bought years ago from another domainer for $30,000, many of which I have let drop by now.. I have hardly registered any new domains in the past 7-8 years. When I used to register domains, I was mainly looking for domains in industries that had good affiliate programs, like travel, books, music, movies, because back then there was no such thing as domain parking companies or Adsense so affiliate links were the only way to make money on my domains.

    We can shortly expect the clueless Bhanot to come running here asking asinine qns about how the sales were made etc…just like preteen groupies at a Justin Bieber concert..

    Hey Bhanot how are your ‘sales’ doing this year?

    LOL

    Thanks for sharing…there is a wide range in pricing on your domains, do you base any of this on number of inquiries you get or are you always trying to make the deal work to bring in some revenue?

    1. admin Post author

      Yes, the number of inquiries is a big factor, but most of my domains have never received any offers so the main guides I use are the values at estibot.com and appraise.epik.com .

    Eric are you doing outbound sales on these . I got an email today from someone named Jenna trying to sell me one of your domains that doesn’t even come close to a match. If you drop me a note in email I’ll send it to you.

    1. admin Post author

      About a week ago I started having a broker (Jenna) do outbound sales for my domains on a commission only basis. But, I did not mention that in my blog posting because none of the domains I listed as sold were ones that were sold by that broker. So far the broker is getting good results, but no transactions have closed yet (a bunch of deals have been agreed to though).

  9. Adam

    Thanks Eric. Glad to hear it’s working out for you. What’s the commission ?

  10. Sameh

    Congrats! Solid sales for sure.

    BTW, did you have a “for sale” page or they were just parked and buyers contacted you via whois?

    Thanks for sharing and I wish you all the best.

    1. admin Post author

      Most of my domains are setup as minisites, and at the bottom of each of those pages I say the domain is for sale, so that generates a lot of inquires. Many people also lookup the whois info and then email me.

    Eric,

    I happen to have my entire domains site with approx 900 .Com domains up for sale.

    I don’t have much energy due to illness.

    If you know anyone who wants a great deal i’m asking Less than $100k for all 900 domains plus website.

    Thanks,

    Karl

    These are signs of the times. Are these record numbers for you? Sounds like you’re doing great with this domain saling.

    1. admin Post author

      I am selling more domains than usual, but at lower prices than in the past.
