Making Money with Domain Names: Avoid Losses

Do you want to make money with domain names? If so, you will be pleased with your options. You can buy a domain name and sell it, make money through a parked domain, act as a broker to assist others with selling, or use a domain name to create a profitable website. With so many options, it is easy to make money with domain names, but there are some risks.

All moneymaking opportunities have some risks whether it be the buying and selling of domain names or pet food, risks are always involved. Despite the possibility of risks, there are steps you can take to ensure you make money with domain names not lose it.

As previously stated, there are many ways to make money with a domain name. To reduce loss and increase profits, choose your approach wisely. For example, you can turn a domain name into a website, park it with ads, or flip it for sale.

Using a domain name is risky, but it is one of your most profitable options. By creating a content driven website with advertisements, you generate income overtime. This income is residual income. So, you may make $1,000 selling a domain name, but you could make $10,000 in five years with a functioning website. The only downside to this approach is the time that is required for website development and marketing.

Parking a domain name is common practice. When a domain name is purchased, but not in use it is parked. If you want to make money with parked domains you need to find a moneymaking program. For example, Domain Sponsors for Domains allow you to setup an account and display pay-per-click advisements. When these advisements are clicked, you make money.

Internet users typically happen on domain names for sale by chance. Without content most have poor search engine ranking. If you have a domain name that is easy to find by chance, you are likely to earn more money with pay-per-click advertising on a parked domain. If not, you should only use domain name parking as a temporary solution. Use it until you decide to sell your domain name or create a website to accompany it.

As previously stated, you can sell a domain name you own. This process is referred to as flipping. Domain name flipping has the most risk, but it also has high earning potential. Your best chance for success is to choose a catchy domain name that someone will need in the future. Think of future movie names, business ideas, book titles, and so forth. By holding onto these domains, you may be approached by a buyer willing to pay big bucks. On the other hand, you can take a domain name and use a third party website to flip it right away, but the profits will be smaller.

To reduce losses and increase profits with domain names, knowledge is vital. It is easy to turn a content driven website into a moneymaking machine, but only if you are familiar with search engine optimization and ad placement. In terms of domain name flipping, research names to find the best. Don’t just choose any name like ajskfjsldfj.com. Choose a name that someone will want to buy from you.

Regardless of how you make money through domain names, choose a short name. Since internet users not only find websites by internet search but also by typing in the address bar, short names are in demand. Avoid using long phrases.

If you opt to flip a domain name, know what sells the best. In most instances, they are the names of movies, books, celebrities, business, and annual events. Professionals will register a related domain name well in advance, but there are no guarantees. This is your chance to make a huge profit. Hear of a new business opening in the area? See if the domain is available for sale. If so, buy it. The business owner with a purchase offer may approach you or you can attempt to make the sale independently.

What is Domain Name Flipping and How Can You Profit

Hosting for 1 buck!

Have you ever wanted to build a website? If so, you may have been met with disappointment when you learned that your preferred domain name was taken. What did you do? Most individuals will move on and choose another name. On the other hand, some will make a purchase offer, which can be very high. How does that impact you? Right now it doesn’t, but it could.

If you want to make easy money online, you need to familiarize yourself with the phrase “domain name flipping.” Domain name flipping is used to describe the process of buying and reselling a domain name. The average internet user thinks nothing of this practice. This is because most are unaware of the earning potentials.

So, how does domain name flipping translate into income?

Say you live in Los Angeles California. A business owner decides to start a business selling handmade clothes. They need a website. Not only can a website drive traffic to a brick and mortar store, but generate online and phone orders too. It is rare for a business owner not to have an online website these days. So, what does this mean? It means they start building a website, but first they need a domain name.

Most business owners will opt for a name that is their business name or a slight variation. For example, the above mentioned business owner may want the domain name LAhandmade.com. Since there are millions of websites on the internet, most good domain names are already in use. This means that the business owner in question may be unable to use their business name or a slight variation of it. Unlike an individual wanting to start a personal website, a business owner rarely gives up. Most will make a purchase offer.

Since business owners are the ones who are likely to pay the most money for a domain name, it is important to choose your name wisely. Don’t just head over to a website that sells domain names and type in a bunch of letters. Instead, be creative. Think of catchy business names for plumbers, salon owners, and so forth. A catchy domain name is one that is likely to sell for a large profit.

In addition to just guessing, use research to your advantage. Is their a new building being built in your hometown? Why not stop by for a quick conversation with a construction worker. Ask what is being built. Business that operate on a national level typically reserve domain names in advance, but not small business owners. Get the name and head home. See if the business name or slight variations of it are available with a .com address. If so, buy it. You will pay as little as $10 on average.

As previously stated, a business owner who wants a domain name is likely to make a purchase offer. For that to happen, they need to know how to find you. Make it easy. Do not hide your association with your domain name by using a common cloaking service. Make it easy for potential buyers to find you.

If you have good customer service and selling skills, approach the business owner. Let them know you are the name owner and that you will offer them a discounted price. Of course, don’t let it be too much of a discount. If you suspect a business owner is willing to pay $10,000 for a domain name, don’t offer more than a $500 discount.

In addition to waiting for someone to approach you to buy your domain name, start generating ideas. Did you know that many people turn to the internet to research business names? Give them ideas and let them know that the domain name is available for sale. As previously stated, many are disappointed when their business name or variation isn’t available in .com format. Some business owners research domain names before choosing a name. By knowing they can make the purchase, many do.

Domain Names: Sell or Use?

Big Discounts for Domains, Hosting, SSL and more

Did you just purchase a domain name or do you want to? If so, you will be faced with a big decision. That decision is to sell your domain name or use it. So, which approach should you choose? To make the best decision, there are a number of important factors you should first examine.

Ease

In terms of ease, selling a domain name is the easiest. Why? Because it can be done in as little as two steps. Step 1 is to buy a domain name. Step 2 is to sell it. If you want to maximize your profits, research is required. For example, investigate to learn the name of a new business before it is shared with the public and register a domain name with it. To make big profits with domain name flipping, don’t just chose any name.

As for using a domain name, it does require more time and work. Not only do you need a domain name, but you need a web hosting package. This is what allows you to display content, pictures, and video on your website. Not only that, but you can display advertisements. This is how you make money with the use of a domain name.

Costs

To sell a domain name, you may turn to a third party website. These third party websites make money by charging fees. You may be charged a percentage of the selling price or a monthly listing fee. Choose your website wisely. You want a third party domain selling website that is proven successful, but one that has affordable costs. The less you pay in related expenses, the larger the profits.

A cheap way to flip a domain is to do your own selling and marketing. For example, list your domain name for sale on Craigslist.org or another online classified website. Most are free to use.

As previously stated, you need a web hosting plan to use a domain name. This costs money. Always price compare to find the best deal. You can pay as much as $40 a month or as few as $4 a month for web hosting.

Time

In terms of domain name flipping, the process can take time. In fact, it can take a year or more. This means that you may have to renew the domain name once or twice before making a sale. Even if you must pay $20 over the course of two years, you are still able to make a profit when you sell the name for $1,000. The most time consuming part of selling a domain name is advertising.

In terms of using a domain name, time will depend on which approach you take. Do you want to do your own writing? If so, it will be a time consuming process. Content is needed for search engine ranking. It is what draws readers in and leads them to click on your advertisements. If limited on time and if you have financial resources, hire a professional writer. All you need to do is sit back and watch.

Profits

Your profits when selling a domain name will depend. Do you have a good name or one that is in demand? Does a business want it? If so, they may pay more. A bad domain name can sell with a profit of only $10, but a carefully selected name could easily sell with a profit of $1,000 or more!

In terms of using a domain name, profits will be slow. Some experts say it takes an average of 6 months for a website or blog to generate income. It depends on the domain name, website content, and frequency of updates. Although profits may be slow coming in, you make money overtime. By relying on affiliate programs and pay-per-click advertising, you could easily make $5,000 a year. In the long term, you are able to generate more income with use than flipping.
