Value of Domain Names vs Traditional Advertising

SECURITY DOMAINS.

So today I sit in front of my computer and start making a list of companies to contact in regards to a particular category of Domain Names I have for sale.

At the same time I have my inbox open and I get a response back from one of the contacts on the list.

Talk about one brain cell mentality. The guy who ever he may be in the company but obviously has some authority to open up emails responds back and I immediately felt rage.

He’s not on the first page of Google for the paticular keywords in fact he is about 5 or 6 pages behind and he is not using Google Ads, which must have be the reason how he responded, probably because he does not have two pennies to rub together or may be all he has is a fiverr.

I could screen shot the email aswell as name and shame him. But if your reading this your an idiot and deserve to be on the last pages of Google and people like you should not be in business. Obviously his company most probably is only worth a fiverr and if I was pedantic I would scrutinize his website for errors, which at a guess he must have a few not to rank well on Google but he is not worth the time.

This brings me to an article I read today that enforces why domains have high value and the domains I was promoting today are worth more than a fiverr:

PPC vs Keyword Related Domains


SEO.

Imagine how much money you could save by having a keyword related domain? Yes brandable names are fine providing you are well known, but what if you are starting out and want the world to know who you are?

This is where SEO link wheels come in. So you have launched your brandable website which is not known to the world and probably people will not even search for your name so what do you do?

You then hire a marketing company to advertise your name. Imagine if there was a simplier way to get on the first page of google with a keyword related domain.

What you do is you launch your site which is the mothership but you also launch another forwarded to you main site with your keyword related domain. The name will change in your address bar on your browser automatically showing you your branded site.

I have attached a link to 25 most expensive keywords of all time. If you had a budget of £3.00 per day you would not even hit those keywords meaning you would less likely be found. Hence owning a keyword related domain makes more sense.

Naming and Shaming


Naming and Shaming!

Finally there is a website to name and shame corporate scammers. I could think of one person I would love to put on this website.

Although he did not scam me for stealing my domains he did however scam by making me build websites for him and then did not pay me.

I could go on but he was running two photographic studios, he expected me to work in this studio building my company websites but also helping him with the photo shoots which he never paid me a single dime for.

He did pay a monthly fee up until the point he decided to close one of the studios down because he owed money for rent and thats when he stopped paying me for the websites. He found out what hosting company I used and registered one of the domains to that hosting company and made me build the websites for him.

So I have no control over that site even though he uses it to make money from and he must have planned this all along for me not to have control over his hosting.

His time will come because I can pursue his debt for six years accumilating interest at 8% per annum on £11K.

So I would love to name and shame him but I need to take him to court first before plastering him all over the internet.

But unfortuately the owner of this site has focused on Domain Thieves which this particular individual does not fit into the catagory unfortunately.

The website is: http://www.hallofshame.com

How to find Buyers

Apart from stating the obvious and listing your domain on sites like www.flippa.com, www.afternic.com and www.sedo.com to name a few. There are other ways to find buyers.

1) Create a Landing Page and do some Seo. If you don’t upload your domain to all the search engines, how do you expect them to list you?

2) As above list to reputable Domain Broker sites.

3) Advertise on all the social media platforms.

4) Find Groups and Pages on Social Media that you can join.

5) Search Google for similar names as your Domain and especially concentrate on the ones that are not on the first page of Google for example.

The companies will appreciate the value of your domain if the keywords match your domain name to help them rank better.

6) Remember to use charm pricing. Rather than list something for £2000, list it instead for £1,999.99 its only one penny less but it looks less and more pleasing to the eye.

7) Search for hashtags that end with your domain name and contact the people behind them.

8) Paid Per Click Advertising tells you the end user needs help being on the first page of Google. Do not approach a company that has a natural listing as they will not see the value of what you are trying to sell them.

9) Try Angel Investors. There are plenty of companies advertising investors waiting for an opportunity to knock.

10) Consider approaching investment companies.

However before you contact anyone do make sure your domain has value, no one wants to be bothered in their busy schedule with inferior domain names.

Go to www.namespro.com to have your domain evaluated or use www.esibot.com although with esibot algorithm it will evaluate your domain on stats rather than a professional opinions from an experienced Domain Brokers.

IN TWO MINDS

Although actively today I made a decision to keep ‘DOMTREPRENEUR’ Domain Name so that it can help with the SEO of my orginal website: www.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk

As the day has gone on I am back to thinking should I sell it (www.domtrepreneur.com)?

At the moment it is forwarded to UK Website Designers but this could change too by having a completely independant website. I think I need to sleep on this.

I dont think I could let it go so easily but for the right entrepreneur who can put money on the table I may consider it. Howevever I still may change my mind again in the future after all how many websites do I actually need? Decisions, decisions…….

So I have slept and have decided that I am keeping the name ‘DOMTREPRENEUR’ after all this will be my brand name and how people will relate to me in the industry.

I did have someone who gave interest in the domain but I am not waiting around forever.

This is going to be the starting point and I will create a dedicated website.

Anyone who wishes to give input on this is welcome by emailing me. Kind words please.

Will update you once I have more news.

10/11/17

I have decided after many months of delibeiration I am in fact going to sell ‘Domtrpreneur’.

I will be listing it on Startbrand and on Linkedin shortly.

ONE WORD DOMAIN NAMES

For inspiration I have found the following website to have one word or short name domains that for one reason or another have not been renewed.

I am not sure how this site works but I suspect it must use an algorythm to collect its information.

Upon scanning its list I found some good domains. If you are fed up of thumbing through the dictionary or having a bright light idea only to find that is gone, this may be a good site to start with.

I do not know how often this site gets updated so don’t just take my word for it that these domains are available, thats up to you to find out.

Anyway here is the website: http://www.justdropped.com

FUNDING CARDIFF

Everyone loves a fundraiser especially for a good cause. I have lately been doing research on the keywords FUNDING CARDIFF, as this is my home and I have found out Cardiff is crying out for funding for their Bus Station because the old one was ploughed down to make room for the BBC Studio’s.

Imagine starting up a crowd funding site in Cardiff or Private Equity business/charity or maybe an expansion to an existing business, whatever the case may be this could potentially create jobs in the Capital as well as attract much needed funding.

Our government could save money, just saying……

So here is the domain I am talking about www.fundingcardiff.co.uk

It diverts to my other blog until I find an investor.

Just email me to: info@ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk to make an offer.

Upon continuing my research into funding I came across this uselful link for UK grants and investments. I am not sure who is eligible to fund these projects and you will most probably have to contact each company directly for more information, but for investors this is a very useful site: https://www.c3sc.org.uk/support/funding/current-funding

The domain www.fundingcardiff.co.uk could be ideal for fundraising and creating campaigns, it could provide specialists to
support a particular appeal or interim staff to support an ongoing project.

08/10/19 USA Date.

I have since dropped www.fundingcardiff.co.uk even if I still think it was a really good domain name and it could have been a Venture Capital website but the amount of people I wrote to that could have easily hired me to build them a website that could have raised funds for Cardiff was very disappointing with the reponse. Don’t say I did not want to help and its their loss at the end of the day as I have may connections from Millionaires, billionaires and Royalty that all could have helped to raise funding.

Reach For The Sky!

I read an article today that came inside a newsletter which said that dot coms are the best followed by dot net, dot org, dot biz. I can understand the reasoning but a UK investor is not going to buy a dot com unless he is going to do business in the states or worldwide. So coming from the UK most of my clients buy dot co dot uk domain names.

My best advise is do your research. Don’t give up your day job in the hope you will make millions overnight, it takes time and patience.

Once you have sold a few domains then consider you life changing goals and not before.

Once you feel confident you have a prized gem, contact organizations that may be interested in buying your domain, don’t be shy and follow your gut feelings.

I follow a couple of domain investors of which one is called is Rick Schwartz, here is a link to an article about the value of his portfolio.

Granted I have no where near 7000 domains, but I do think I have a couple of gems and yes he has some clever names which are valued at $500 milllon dollars.

There are plenty of domain selling and advice websites out there its up to you to do your homework. If you think you have a domain that has little value, then you most probably have got just that. Don’t bother renewing it year after year if after you have put it up for auction you have little or no views, that’s telling you something surely.

Create a landing page for each domain you have and do your SEO which is very important or have it parked with a registrar. Contact businesses that may be interested. Never give up.

Happy Reading.
