How To Sell Your Domain Names: Short Term vs Long Term Domain Name Investment Strategy

Long Term Domain Name Investment

Selling a Dot Com Domain Name is not as hard as you think.  Before you get to sell your domain name, you need to ask a serious of questions to determine if your domain name is a Short Term or Long Term Domain Name Investment.

Review your Dot Com’s and group them in two categories “Long Term” and “Short Term”.

The difference between Long Term and Short Term is very simple.  Five years ago I read an article about 3D Printing Technology exploding in 2014 thanks to the expiration of key patents.  In February 2014, key patents that currently prevent competition in the market will expire.  Based on that news article,  I decided to use 35% of money I earned from Domain Name Investments and reinvest in 3D Printing Dot Com’s and hand register as many as Dot Com’s I could as part of a Long Term Domain Name Investment Strategy Plan.

Long Term Domain Name Investments are profitable usually within 5-10 years, whereas a Short Term Domain Name Investment sell within the first 48-Hours.

I have a rule when it comes to selling Short Term Domain Name Investments; SELL IT QUICKLY!  From my experience, if an End User doesn’t reply to back to my Domain Name Sales Email within the first 48-Hours my chances of selling the Domain Name drops 95% within the first year.  I never invest in a domain name before researching the buyer/buyers.

Before investing into a Short Term Domain Name Investment you need to research your End User and analyze their Market Value!

The following questions are important when it comes to Short Term Domain Name Investments:

  1. Is the Domain Name a Dot Com?
  2. How many potential End Users would benefit from buying your Dot Com?
  3. How many of the potential End Users are using a Dot Com?
  4. How many of the potential End Users have an active Website?
  5. How many of the potential End Users own a domain name registered for 5 or more years?
  6. How many of the potential End Users have more than one website?
  7. How many of the potential End Users lack search engine friendly domain names?
  8. How many of the potential End Users are based in North America?
  9. How many of the potential End Users would rank higher on search engines with your domain name?

With Short Term Domain Name Investments you need to ask a lot of questions to reduce your risk of losing money and increase your odds of selling the domain name within the first 48-Hours!

Short Term Domain Name Investments are very profitable when you research your End User! Why invest in a domain name without knowing the facts?  Be Smart with your Domain Name Investments and make money!

  1. Good post, and it’s interesting for me to hear about the https://www.google.co.uk/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=caveat&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=UyqxUvOBGIKrhQfF-YC4Dg patents for 3DPrinting domains being lifted for 2014, excellent news!

    Also, what about some of the short .com’s with some age that would be in the “brandable” niche? It’s hard to actually find a potential end user for this at times, although the right type of these are sellers, but you have to be passive, what do you think? 

    Thanks, best Howie.

  2. HowieCrosbyThank you for posting your domain name investment question about to short dot com’s.   Short Brand Name Dot Com’s are long term investments with high risk factors.  I went as far as spending $5000 U.S.D to purchase a single LLLL.com (Brand Name) and 5 years later walked away with $1500 profit.   I could not find a single End User during those years to pay me a lousy $10,000 or even $5000!! The problem with short or long brand domain names are that you have to wait for an End User to knock on your door! Otherwise the best offer you’ll get is from another Domainer! 

    If your in this to make money, short term domain name investments is a good starting point!   Brand Name Dot Com’s are high risk, unless you get lucky like the guy who owned iPhone.com!
