Introduction to Domaining

introduction-to-domainingDomain speculation, commonly referred to as domaining, is a practice that has fascinated me since the first time I heard about it. Domains are valuable because each one is unique. There is only one and only one, but it does not take a genius to figure out that the former is far more valuable than the latter. Many domains have a real or perceived commercial value, which makes them desirable. The art of domaining involves identifying valuable domains, securing them and reselling either to other domainers or to end users. In a way, this is very similar to what I had been doing on eBay for a long while many years ago. I made about $60,000 selling Transformers and Masters of the Universe toys, doubling my initial investment. I am not even counting a further $40,000 profits that I invested in other opportunities, but eventually lost. I loved doing that because I am an avid toy collector and the thrill of hunting down rarities and turning them into hard cash was very exciting and motivating. It also helped me make it through a very hard time. Eventually I had to quit because my local post office is owned by a company that has a monopoly over postal services. Some years ago, they started charging almost ten times as much as any other European post office for international shipping; this made my business uncompetitive and I was forced to quit. Domaining is great because the concept is basically the same, but there is no shipping involved. I have only recently started moving my first footsteps in this field, and I have realized two things: Some people make domaining sound easier than it really is; others make it sound like it is oversaturated and a waste of one’s time. I think both are wrong. There is money to be made in domaining, but there is an enormous amount of competition, so a good strategy is needed. Going to Namecheap and starting to type in random names to find an appealing domain that is available for registration is a laughable approach. Using Market Samurai to find keyword-rich domains and expecting to sell them for two hundred dollars each after a week or two is a little more pragmatic, but still unrealistic. Without much ado, let me illustrate my strategy. I am sharing this with you without having fully tested it out. I do not know if it will work or not.

Make Money With 99Designs and Fiverr

99designsandfiverrHere is an idea that has been floating for a while in my head, since I created this momentous list of money-earning websites a few weeks ago. One of the sites that I tested out myself is 99designs. As I said in that article, I love the site primarily for its educational value. Artists compete with each other and only one winner gets picked. It’s a bit like the movie Highlander: In the end there will be only one left. No heads are cut fortunately, but only the best artist gets picked and earns the cash. The prizes are quite consistent. We’re talking about a $99–$200 payout, for a job, which in most cases takes ten minutes to complete! The competition, however, is fierce. In the contest I took part in a few weeks ago, there were about forty artists fighting for the prize and over four hundred designs were submitted. While this is a fun and instructive activity, getting paid once every four-hundred jobs done is not very practical. Taking ten minutes to complete each job means sixty-seven hours of work. Now divide $135 by sixty-seven hours. This implies an hourly rate of $2. It will be even less if the quality of our work is below average, and slightly more if it is above average. All isn’t lost, though. Let’s take a closer look at this method of making money online, and see if we can combine it with others to make it more effective than ever! Check Out This One!

How to Buy or Transfer a Domain and Retain Pagerank, Authority and Trust to Protect your Investment

Domain TransferThere are many reasons why expired and deleted domains may be desirable for an Internet marketer . They can give you a huge kick start for your website flipping project. A prospective buyer will be more interested in purchasing your site if it’s build on a solid, aged domain. Aged domains are always a great way to start your very own website. It saves you from having to deal with the Google sandbox effect (Google ignores sites that are built on brand new domains for a couple of months). And finally, they are used by many gray/black hats for SEO purposes. This is done by buying the domain, creating a website and putting a link to your money site on the aged domain. Whichever the reason why you want aged domains, you will want your brand new asset to retain its value. In this article, I will show you a simple technique to increase your chances to preserve the potential of the domain. First, let’s take a look at what we mean exactly by the value of an aged domain.

The Ultimate Passive Income Technique: Make Money by Selling T-shirts Online

tshirtSelling T-shirts can be a very profitable business. If you have some artistic talent and drawing skills it can be even more profitable. You don’t even need a special printer or equipment. In fact you don’t even need to keep an inventory because there are services such as that will print the shirts, ship them and even handle any issues on your behalf. The idea came to me while I was watching YouTube videos. Almost all the popular vloggers out there get t-shirts as gifts from their subscribers, and, every time they find one in the mail, they look so happy and enthusiast about the new gift which they just received! Even one of my friends once sent me some t-shirts as a gift. People love t-shirts! They love expressing themselves using their clothes, they love giving cool t-shirts to the people they care about, and they love art. Since portraits, graffiti and artwork in general are readily available on the Internet for free, selling prints and original artwork on the Internet is a very tough job. Many people have high-quality laser printers or Ink-jets that can do any paper-printing job professionally, and let’s face it: when it’s for personal use, no one cares about copyrights. T-shirts are a different story though. A special printer is needed to print on clothing and this costs several grand. The average Joe doesn’t have one in the basement, so people will still invest in shirts. Keep in mind , however, that there is a lot of competition out there. So to be successful in this business, we need to be creative, original and appeal to the widest possible audience. How do we do that?

My Amazing Guide to Choosing the Best Aged Domain Names; And Avoiding the Crappy Ones!

Domain ChoicesA few weeks ago, I took a look at ways and means to preserve the value of an aged domain once you have purchased it in this article here. That’s just the last of the four phases one has to go through to get a high-PR domain, the other three being, finding them, choosing them and buying them. I will leave finding them and buying them as subjects of other future articles. Today, we’ll be focusing on choosing cool domains! How many times you see people on forums complaining that the high-PR domain that they bought didn’t bring any link juice to their money site? Or that no one made an offer on the site that they tried to flip? Or again, that the aged domain lost all its PR after they bought it? It happens all the time: one person in a forum thread says that aged domains are s~*t, and the next one says that they are the best thing in the world since the invention of sex. Who are we to believe? Chances are they are both correct, but the first guy is likely to have done one of two mistakes. Either they chose the wrong domain, or they didn’t take enough precautions to have its value preserved. Both of these steps are required for the domain to do its job. As already stated, the last step has been covered elsewhere. Let’s see how to choose a great domain that will give the best results for flipping, ranking, link juice or whatever else you want to use it for. Find Out How Before Mr Huggins Chimes In
