Bought QRT.co

3 character domains are hard to find. I have tried many times to look for good 3 character domains.

Yesterday I located two .co 3 character domains, but only registered the better of the two. After searching for 10 minutes, I located QRT.co.

The domain’s initials represents a government term known as “Quick Response Time.” As a writer, there are many ways to use this domain.

I’m definitely lucky to locate a nice 3 character .co.

Another newly registered domain receives a high bid

Today I found another domain that was only registered this past March. The domain received a $1000 bid.

The domain is valued at less than $50. It doesn’t produce any stats. Most of my domains are set at a fixed price. Sedo recommends a fix price, noting that domains sell three to four times faster.

Since I uploaded a domain at Sedo, I have never sold a domain at a fixed price, unless I provided a link to the domain.

It puzzles me that a domains based on speculation are fetching 4 figure prices.

I own hundreds of domains which can sell for 4 figures. Many of these are extremely popular keywords. I have never sold any domains above $320.

There has to be some sort of technique to find a bidder. I have over 400 domains listed at Sedo.

Sedo suggests that setting fixed prices are the fastest way to make a sale. In my opinion, setting fixed prices are the worst way to sell a domain. It’s much more easier to ask have interest people to make an offer. I use the “make an offer” technique when I craft e-mails to push a domain.

Furthermore, domain owners should always communicate the advantages in using a domain. In order to make a sale, you have to build value into the domain.

Pay attention to Sedo and Go Daddy auctions. Keep track of what the new owner does with the domain. Are these domains used to forward traffic or developed into websites?

The best advice I can offer is to find domain names that you would purchase if you owned a business in that particular market. I assure you that there are thousands of unregistered domains that are still available.

Good luck.

Why some domains produce a sale

I read various blogs and look at what domain investors and companies are bidding on. On Sedo, I came across climatepredicitons.org. This domain barely produces any stats, if not any at all. The domain is about two years old. Guess what?

The owner was able to find someone to make them an offer at $1600+ on the domain, Its puzzling to me how a domain that is not even worth 5% of that value receives a bid for that amount. The owner barely put any work in describing the domain.

It’s another one of those situations where less work produces double the results. I write a ton just to convince a buyer to pay 20% of the amount this owner is receiving on a domain that has no relevant searches. In Google, the domain produces only 500,000 results.

When this domain is typed into an appraisal system, it pulls up as being worth $75.  There has to be some kind of strategy to finding a buyer to pay over 20 times the value for a domain that is based on speculation.

The domain has no traffic ranking and no Google Page rank. Furthermore, the domain is parked at Sedo, offering no content. To ask $1600+ based on speculation is far too much for this domain.

I have to call companies, write hundreds of e-mails, and set up meetings to make pocket change. Some of these domains owners at Sedo are making a fortune with putting in no work. I never understand how some domains produce a sale, especially when they lack content.

I’m thinking that producing a sale is based on luck. Some people have a better chance to make a sale, while others must put in a ton of work to generate little results. I won’t let a domain such as the one selling for $1600+ keep me from duplicating the same exact results.

There has to be a way to receive an offer on one of my 500 domains, which I can then push the domain into the marketplace auction. I assure you that there are many domains in the auction that are less appealing than what I own now.

Maybe I can generate some interest on trafficfines.org. TrafficFines.org generates far better results, as compared to the domain that has a current $1600 bid. I’m assuming that it takes luck to be offered 20 times the value of what a domain is actually worth.

Another strategy that one can use is to contact the new owner regarding a similar domain you want to offer them. Ask them to make you a reasonable offer, and continue to follow-up with them until the deal closes.

Persistence is the key to making every sale a success.

Purchased 3 .co domains

I picked up 3 .co domains. Two were ones where I could never have any access to the .com because a city own one, while a major company owns the other. They would be near impossible to acquire.

Now I own 3 nice domains which I plan to develop. One of the three domains is my hometown, which I already own the .org and .biz extensions.

Another is on a major tourist attraction that I own the .mobi and .us. Lastly, the final one is a popular park in Nyc.

I’m definitely content with the three domains. The price is steep, but the names are well worth the extra change.

The .CO Dilemma

Every large company seemed to have grabbed a hold of the new .co domain. The domain names E.co, T.co, and O.co generated huge sales. For the most part, I would rather invest into .com domains. There are many good .com domain names still available.

In the past week, I find a nice e-related .com and a one word .com domain. These domains were hand registered, and already generated a nice appraisal value. in addition, I found a few travel domains, as well as two 3 character .org domains.

If you want a good domain name without having to pay a fortune for it, then invest some time into creating names that target specific products. Don’t always look for the most obvious names. I found many domains on the drop without actually using any websites to generate a lead.

I can assure you that there are plenty of good .com domain names still available. Good luck on domain investing.

and a few other names that generate more than 1000 monthly popular searches.

Try your luck today with a hand registration. The .co extension is much too expensive for me to purchase. If you have deeper pockets, then take a dive. You might land a nice .co domain name to expand your business.
