Over the weekend, Rick Schwartz posted an article titled: Make a Million Dollars in Domains. 12 EASY steps and 36 Months! REALLY! This post demonstrates how important it is to essentially ‘trade up’ by using profits from your previous domain sales to buy more valuable names – ones that you can make MORE profit from.
Elliot posted a nice addendum yesterday to Rick’s article supporting the theory and giving some good insight on how he used this method to take domaining beyond just a hobby.
I saw comments on these posts asking where/how to find higher value names that are flippable. As I browsed through the DNJournal’s most recent sales chart, I saw several names that sold at prices where I feel the buyer is in a position to make a big profit on the turnaround. Without doing any research on search volume or TM potential, etc, here are names I thought were deals and where they were purchased:
dam.com $6,500 afternic – Damn, that’s a steal!
sous.com $3,460 namejet – Geo name, brandable, sous chef.. super versatile
powr.com $3,298 namejet – Power.com typo
petzone.com $7,600 namejet – Great brand potential
ukproperty.com $6,750 sedo – Maybe a little broad but I like it
lv.tv $3,000 sedo – Las Vegas TV?!
cork.it $1,360 sedo – Maybe a stretch but this is a nice hack
go.fm $1,890 sedo – I like this name, go flows well with the ext
scores.info $1,428 sedo – Huge keyword, definitely a deal for the buyer
rank.info $1,210 sedo – Maybe the second best extension for this word
