Do you want to make easy money online? If so, you have many options, but none are as easy as domain name flipping. In fact, did you know that domain name flipping can be done in as few as 2 easy steps? It can be.
Before highlighting ways that you can profit from domain name flipping, it is important to understand the process. When building a website, internet users purchase a domain name. That name is the website’s personal identity marker. Since the internet is filled with many personal use and business websites, domain names are running out. Yes, there are many more available, but most of the good ones are gone. This means slim pickings for some. How does this benefit you? It gives you an easy way to make a profit.
To profit from domain name flipping, luck and research is required. Did you hear rumors that a new business may be built in your area? As soon as you get a name, search for domain names. Is the business name or any variations available for sale? If so, buy it. That domain name will be in demand later on, so the business owner may want to pay big bucks to get it. In terms of luck, some website owners mistakenly let their domain names expire. Buy it and they may pay a lot to get it back.
In short, domain name flipping is essentially like the popular A&E show Flip This House. On that show, investors take a house, restore it, and resell it for a profit. Flipping domain names is the same, but there is less work and fewer startup costs.
As previously stated, domain name flipping can be done in 2 easy steps. The first step is to buy a domain name. This is the easy part. With a credit or debit card, anyone can purchase a domain name.
To improve your chances of making a profit, don’t opt for any domain name. Instead, choose wisely. Look for expired domain names, those that use popular keywords like eBay, and those that are or may be demand.
When registering a domain name, provide all information. Many people running personal websites opt for a program that keeps their identity hidden. You do not want to do this. If someone wants to buy your domain name, they need to contact you. Listing a domain name for sale isn’t the only selling option. If someone wants your domain name bad enough, they will approach you.
The next step in profiting from domain name flipping is optional. That step is park your domain and monetize it. Although optional, this step allows you to make money during the process. Some companies, such as SEDO, have pay-per-click programs for parked domains. Essentially, advertisements will be displayed on the page that accompanies your domain name. When a click is made, you make a little bit of money.
The final and most important step of domain name selling is to sell. Luckily, you have many options. The most popular is to sell on a third-party website. This is a website that not only lists your domain for sale, but assists with marketing. More people are likely to see your for sale listing. The only downside is that you must pay a fee. That fee can be a percentage of the sale or a monthly listing fee.
To sell a domain name for free, advertise online. You can post messages on free classified websites, like Craigslist.org, or on online forums. Many internet marketing forums have a buy, trade, or sell section where you can post for free.
Now that you know how you can make money with domain name flipping, it is important to know how to make big profits. First, don’t expect to make millions. This is a big misconception surrounding this moneymaking opportunity. Some domain names do sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but that is rare. Instead, try to make at least $50. They key to making money with domain name flipping is to make many sales. This allows you to turn one $50 profit into a $15,000 profit.
Always know the value of your domain name. A valuable domain name sale shouldn’t be rushed. Even if you hold on to the name for a year, don’t undersell.
