123 reg and other web hotsing services?
My first question is 123 reg and other web hotsing services? Many thanks for any comment. My other question... Does anyone have any advice selling bulk portfolio's?.
I've never done so before even when I was trading previously, as it's not something that was publicly done, at least at the level of trading I was involved in. I was wondering about people's experiences or any considerations I should take into account marketing 100-500+ domains at a time..
I've had several pm's regarding the new stock I own but a lot of it is too new (60 days) to let go just yet, i've made a few sales of older domains I had and one 123 reg website looks to be going through but as far as bulk portfolio's go, there always seems 'just one more name' I find and then want to age and include in any portfolio sale to increase it's overall value..
It has occurred to me though it does seem a good way to turn a profit, at least for an individual as you've advertising many names at once, rather than singles or small collections. The opportunity to make a good return averaged over a large portfolio I would imagine is better, because your spreading the risk of losses and increasing the chance of you showing a HostGator to someone they really think valuable, do you feel this is the case?.
Any experiences would be extremely appreciated, I don't expect methods of sale because I probably wouldn't share secrets myself, however any words of advice or experiences, positive or negative would be very helpful. Even if you just think bulk sales are a bad idea, I would appreciate hearing why..
For reference 90% of names I buy are generic .com's mostly with searches, traffic, web presence etc, the usual considerations. I speculate very occasionally on other extensions and IDN's but thats about it..
Thanks in advance,.
Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably could help you..
It all depends on the names. Most of the time, half of the names you don't like.
But you do like the other half...
That's my point, cache. It's a really hard sell to sell a fixed number of bulk domains. The ones the buyer doesn't like/want have no value. OK Mark, your discount offer might solve that but it entirely depends on the names and the buyer. It might be possible to offer say 500 domains but accept offers for 100+ domains. That might work...
