Slide 2:

I want to take the time to seriously congratulate you on having the drive and desire to follow this course. You’ll love it.

Slide 3:

Domain flipping isn’t hard at all... ...What’s hard is taking that first step. Overcoming the fear or overcoming the lack of motivation to better your future.

Slide 4:

So here’s a little about MY background... I didn’t know much when I came online. But what I DID know was that without domain names the internet would look drastically different.

Slide 5:

I mean without domain names there would be no www.Google.com. There’d be a long IP address you’d have to type in. That’s the power of domains. They are here to stay and contrary to what some people think they are only going up in value!

Slide 6:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action.

Slide 7:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain,

Slide 8:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain, even if you made a bad buy,

Slide 9:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain, even if you made a bad buy, you aren’t in negative territory.

Slide 10:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain, even if you made a bad buy, you aren’t in negative territory. Hold it for a few months,

Slide 11:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain, even if you made a bad buy, you aren’t in negative territory. Hold it for a few months, a few years,

Slide 12:

So that’s why I encourage you to take action. Even if you can’t sell your domain, even if you made a bad buy, you aren’t in negative territory. Hold it for a few months, a few years, and you’ll always get your money back out of it.

Slide 13:

I started in ’08 buying local domain names. All of a sudden, by using a simple system, I was able to buy literally $10 domain names and turn that into $500 profits .

Slide 14:

And it worked every single time I did it! With the cash cushion I had made from that I decided to branch into LLL.com domains.

Slide 15:

I quickly started to learn the value of being able to

Slide 16:

I quickly started to learn the value of being able to persuade

Slide 17:

I quickly started to learn the value of being able to persuade and just how crucial it was to

Slide 18:

I quickly started to learn the value of being able to persuade and just how crucial it was to barter .

Slide 19:

The first price is never the right price. If there’s one thing you take away from this… make sure it’s that.

Slide 20:

My first bigger domain I bought for $7,500 and sold a few months later for $8,000. Although a profit I felt defeated.

Slide 21:

...And then, under a month after I sold that domain, the new owner re-sold it for $19,000 !

Slide 22:

This is when I truly understood the importance of sales copy when selling to other domainers . Definition: Domainers are people who sell domains for a living.

Slide 23:

Fast forward to now - with hundreds of domain sales under my belt – this product encompasses everything you will ever need to know when it comes to domains.

Slide 24:

You see unlike all the guru’s I’m not into gouging you. ...To be honest I really enjoy writing about the domain industry. And there’s nothing like teaching someone how to make their first dime online.

Slide 25:

I know, I know. It sounds cheesy. But it’s 100% true.

Slide 26:

When it comes right down to it, domaining (selling domains) can never become saturated because there are always other markets (domain extensions) to enter into .

Slide 27:

Always price increases. Always trends. Always new buyers to sell to.

Slide 28:

Now before getting into the “real meat” –

Slide 29:

Now before getting into the “real meat” – because that’s what you really came here for –

Slide 30:

Now before getting into the “real meat” – because that’s what you really came here for – we need to talk about something pretty serious. The Industry

Slide 31:

There’s a whole industry around domaining . Some of it, interesting some of it downright dirty .

Slide 32:

Without understanding the industry you’re entering into, making a profit is going to become a little tougher for you. This is what most people won’t tell you.

Slide 33:

You have three main groups of people in the industry. These are basically all groups of people who are trying to make money from domaining . Here they are:

Slide 34:

Corporate I’m technically a corporation. And actually most people who make any real money online are incorporated (mainly for tax and personal reasons).

Slide 35:

But this category talks about companies like GoDaddy , Namecheap , etc. These are the domain registrars that make money from selling you your domains. And these are multimillion to billion dollar corporations.

Slide 36:

Note: Just a week ago GoDaddy offered itself for 1 billion !

Slide 37:

...But not everything is exactly squeaky clean about them. There have been many, too many to count, cases where a domain has expired “early”. Meaning if the domain was going to expire May 18th it actually does May 17th.

Slide 38:

Not a big difference,

Slide 39:

Not a big difference, it can really just be a few hours difference,

Slide 40:

Not a big difference, it can really just be a few hours difference, but this allows GoDaddy to

Slide 41:

Not a big difference, it can really just be a few hours difference, but this allows GoDaddy to sweep in if it’s a good domain and take it themselves.

Slide 42:

Legal?

Slide 43:

Legal? Yes. But you have to realize the margins these companies run on aren’t big enough to warrant their massive advertising.

Slide 44:

They need other sources of income and they strive to connect and “help” the end-consumer (like Bob the plumber in La Jolla) while making the biggest profit possible . Even if that means stealing or farming data from you .

Slide 45:

For legality purposes I’m not going to name names or get into specific, well documented cases. And to be honest I don’t know why I would bother you with all the lawsuits, etc, in the industry.

Slide 46:

It’s just information that WON’T make you money. With digital products like this the word gets out and lawsuits can very easily be filed against me . Which no one wants :-).

Slide 47:

The only reason I’m really telling you this is to make the point that all the tools we use,

Slide 48:

The only reason I’m really telling you this is to make the point that all the tools we use, which aren’t many,

Slide 49:

The only reason I’m really telling you this is to make the point that all the tools we use, which aren’t many, are purely third party and free .

Slide 50:

Domain searches, where you search for XXX domain like on the homepage of GoDaddy , are watched and farmed of all information. And on the back-end they probably sort how much certain things are being searched and register, automatically, domains that are searched a lot but not bought.

Slide 51:

This is usually done by other divisions or different companies all together to avoid conflicts of interest lawsuits and all that good stuff. Make no mistake – its being done by many companies though.

Slide 52:

It’s not to say third party tools DON’T farm your info. But they don’t have the resources to do it as well so we’ll go with the “lesser of two evils”.

Slide 53:

...I know that’s a bit negative. But I truly believe for you to do well, and make a ton of money, you need to know the bad along with the good .

Slide 54:

Medium-Sized This term, I admit I’m not great at picking the names, is used to describe people like us. People who “domain squat”, invest in them, or simply flip them like we’ll be doing mostly.

Slide 55:

...The only difference is these are people with hundred million dollar portfolios who don’t mind outspending you.

Slide 56:

These people, luckily for you, are more interested in valuable (100k+) domains not numerous, cheap domains. It’s always good to learn from these people though. Understand their thinking and understand why they are choosing to buy certain domains.

Slide 57:

Most domains that go for a million or more are sold at live auctions. These almost always pop up on YouTube. Watch and get a feel for the “big leagues” (or go to one if it’s near you).

Slide 58:

Most domains that go for a million or more are sold at live auctions. These almost always pop up on YouTube. Watch and get a feel for the “big leagues” (or go to one if it’s near you).

Slide 59:

This is an auction for www.ad.com where Divyank Turakhia gets it for I believe 1.4 million . If you go to the domain now you’ll see it’s just being parked...we’ll talk about why it’s worth 1.4 million to HIM to not build out a site later on.

Slide 60:

(Click to play)

Slide 61:

These people, who are buying million dollar domains, mostly started out just like you. It’s important, even if you never have the intention of buying such a big domain, to really give yourself a test asking yourself:

Slide 62:

• Why would they have bought this domain? • Is there any reasoning to the number they bought it for? • What are they doing with the domain now? • Would this have been a good buy? • Given the comparables how much should he have gone to?

Slide 63:

Through the course you’ll learn how to answer those questions and then can come back and actually start testing yourself to expand your mind if you want :-).

Slide 64:

Small Size This is us. Unless you have a portfolio with over 8 or 9 figures worth of domains in it you’re a small-size domainer . And there’s absolutely no better place to be!

Slide 65:

• You don’t need to pay millions for domains (that aren’t worth it) • Very rarely will you get in bid wars that in the end aren’t profitable • You have the luxury of time to find killer domains for $10 which will make you thousands • You will always be able to make money (the question is how much...)

Slide 66:

Knowing your place on the food chain is important. It’s also important to realize who you’ll be bidding against in the event you’re ever at a live event or an online auction for expensive domains down the road.

Slide 67:

Just because something goes for double what YOU would’ve been able to pay doesn’t make it profitable. www.Google.com would NEVER have gotten more than $1,000 on the open market. But to Google the domain was priceless.

Slide 68:

Sometimes branding and other things out of our known control have huge factors in domain value.

Slide 69:

The industry I’m in,

Slide 70:

The industry I’m in, and now that you are also in,

Slide 71:

The industry I’m in, and now that you are also in, is crazy.

Slide 72:

The industry I’m in, and now that you are also in, is crazy. Full of big money,

Slide 73:

The industry I’m in, and now that you are also in, is crazy. Full of big money, big deals,

Slide 74:

The industry I’m in, and now that you are also in, is crazy. Full of big money, big deals, and sometimes huge losses.

Slide 75:

Like www.sex.com – Do a search on that domains history to see the huge losses it’s come across for most of its owners.

Slide 76:

But don’t get stressed.

Slide 77:

Remember all you have to do is DO IT . Once you do it you’ll get a feel for the art and the science involved in picking winning domains, you can sell for a 1000 times more than you bought it for.

Slide 78:

So... What Is Domain Flipping? My dictionary defines a flip as “ to toss so as to cause to turn over in the air ”, or “ to buy and usually renovate (real estate) so as to quickly resell at a higher price ”.

Slide 79:

It is, of course, the latter definition that we are concerned with: “to buy and usually renovate so as to quickly resell at a higher price ”.

Slide 80:

Domain flipping, quite like real-estate flipping, involves buying domains on the cheap and reselling them at a higher price .

Slide 81:

One can add some extra value to the domain (“renovate”) by developing it into a website, but in its purest form, domain flipping is largely the buying and selling of empty, undeveloped domain names.

Slide 82:

Just like real-estate flipping, domain flipping can be extremely profitable. My own story should serve as a good example.

Slide 83:

I once sold a domain name for a $19,000 profit within 3 days. Another domain was sold for a $27,500 profit within 3 months, and one more domain was sold for a $493 profit within 18 hours!

Slide 84:

Flipping, by virtue of the very term, means making quick profits . In this course, however, I will focus not only on quick flips (which, as I’ve said, can be immensely profitable), But also on building a long term business.

Slide 85:

The only tools you really need to be able to use the information in this course are: a few dollars in cash a couple of hours of your time some free tools I show you and the desire to succeed!

Slide 86:

Three Steps to Success Domain flipping follows a simple formula: Find a quality domain and buy it on the cheap, and then sell it for a higher price at the right marketplace (online or off).

Slide 87:

The skills and techniques required can be basically broken down into three parts: 1. Identifying a Valuable Domain 2. Buying Said Domain for Cheap 3. Selling Domain to the End User

Slide 88:

Before we proceed, let’s take a closer look at these three skills/techniques/concepts in detail.

Slide 89:

Identifying a Valuable Domain Think of a real estate flipper who can look at a house and immediately figure out if it will make for a successful flip or not.

Slide 90:

What all factors go into his decision? Location Neighbourhood Construction quality Number of rooms Etc. All are factors that he has to keep in mind before making his decision.

Slide 91:

The very same rules apply to domain names: unless you can instantly figure out whether a domain name is valuable, you will have a hard time succeeding with domain flipping.

Slide 92:

I’ve covered this skill in detail later on. In fact, my primary focus in this course is to help you understand the various factors that make a domain valuable .

Slide 93:

Even if you decide NOT to invest in domains, you’ll find it particularly illuminating and useful in other online ventures (which undoubtedly will NEED domain names). I’ll give you all the theoretical knowledge you need to identify a valuable domain.

Slide 94:

At the end of the day, however, it is your real world experience that will determine how good you are at it. Remember: Practice makes perfect.

Slide 95:

It took me several months of trial and error and even longer study of the market before I really understood how domains are valuable. Even today, some freak sales throw me off guard. But that’s all part of the game as you’ll soon see...

Slide 96:

2. Buying the Domain For Cheap Unless you can find a domain at or below market value, you’ll struggle to turn a profit. Therefore, in this section, I’ll discuss the various places where you can buy or register domain names for cheap.

Slide 97:

3. Selling the Domain to the End User This is where all our knowledge comes together: selling the domain name for a profit.

Slide 98:

After you’ve identified a domain’s value and bought it for cheap, you will need to sell it at the right marketplace (on or offline) at the right price to make a successful flip.

Slide 99:

And there you have it. Those are the core three principals involved in flipping domain names.

Slide 100:

The domain industry is vast and complicated. As a multi-billion dollar a year industry, it is impossible for me to explain its each and every aspect within this course.

Slide 101:

Since this course is aimed primarily at domain flipping , you will learn: How to find and recognize valuable domains for flipping How to buy domains And how to sell them

Slide 102:

I’m here to teach you the direct methods to making you thousands of dollars a month.

Slide 103:

I’m here to teach you the direct methods to making you thousands of dollars a month. I don’t want you,

Slide 104:

I’m here to teach you the direct methods to making you thousands of dollars a month. I don’t want you, or I for that matter,

Slide 105:

I’m here to teach you the direct methods to making you thousands of dollars a month. I don’t want you, or I for that matter, to get distracted from that main point.

Slide 106:

That said, I will make an attempt to explain as many concepts as I know of (which are a lot). I will go in-depth into each subject and give you actual examples, provide screenshots, etc. to help you fully understand it.

Slide 107:

I will also ask you to show some restraint when putting these methods to practice. I know from experience that domain flipping can be highly addictive and expensive , but also very lucrative.

Slide 108:

Please don’t go overboard with your purchases and adopt a “slow and steady” approach, learning along the way. I can give you all the information in the world, but only experience can give you real world knowledge.

Slide 109:

Domain flipping is a wonderful method to make money, and there’s no reason you can’t have HUGE success with it If you do have some extra cash in your pockets, or are just curious about how this industry works,

Slide 110:

Domain flipping is a wonderful method to make money, and there’s no reason you can’t have HUGE success with it If you do have some extra cash in your pockets, or are just curious about how this industry works, step right on in.

Slide 111:

Methods vs. Businesses One of my biggest pet peeves is courses that teach a “method”. ...A method for “quick cash” or “quick riches”.

Slide 112:

You know what I mean – the latest craigslist posting guide or method to make a few hundred a day.

Slide 113:

Take my advice. If you learn one thing in the course learn this: If you want huge money over time follow business plans – not methods .

Slide 114:

Is there more work in the beginning? Sometimes. Depends….

Slide 115:

But there is SO much money to be made in the future and you’ll sleep much better at night (knowing that you’re building real wealth).

Slide 116:

Domain flipping is a full-fledged business – not just some method. Ask the guy worth 400 million living in his 20 million dollar Las Vegas penthouse. He’ll tell you there’s potential in this whole “ domaining ” thing. ;-)

Slide 117:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece,

Slide 118:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month,

Slide 119:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month, you CAN make a very respectable living

Slide 120:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month, you CAN make a very respectable living barely working

Slide 121:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month, you CAN make a very respectable living barely working and by

Slide 122:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month, you CAN make a very respectable living barely working and by just being smart.

Slide 123:

Whether you want to sell 10 domains a month for $1,000 a piece, or flip one domain for $10,000 every month, you CAN make a very respectable living barely working and by just being smart.

Slide 124:

And on the flip side by working hard off you can make much, much more than that . ...Right now I’m sitting on my deck, MacBook Pro on my lap, a drink beside me, overlooking the river. Now THAT’S what life is all about.

Slide 126:

And domaining will allow you to do that.

Slide 127:

Information Overload The equivalent of the black plague to internet marketers... Information overload is something 99.9% of marketers face at one point or another and because of it thousands start, fail, and stop their online careers. Wasting both time and money.

Slide 128:

All because they have TOO MUCH information.

Slide 129:

Information overload left my career crippled when I first began.

Slide 130:

Information overload left my career crippled when I first began. I’d jump from method to method,

Slide 131:

Information overload left my career crippled when I first began. I’d jump from method to method, e-book to e-book,

Slide 132:

Information overload left my career crippled when I first began. I’d jump from method to method, e-book to e-book, guru to guru,

Slide 133:

Information overload left my career crippled when I first began. I’d jump from method to method, e-book to e-book, guru to guru, and I made all of something like $3.48 in my first half a year.

Slide 134:

This course is big. There is a lot of stuff for you to go through. Every method, every approach, I talk about I have and still do myself. I have hundreds of domains and have sold hundreds more.

Slide 135:

All the methods here work. They’re the cream of the crop methods to putting cash in your pocket right now. So I encourage you to go through this WHOLE course.

Slide 136:

Read every word Make notes on your first impressions etc. Make it clear to yourself what methods you LIKE and would like to do and what ones you aren’t too fond of.

Slide 137:

...We all have different methods we like. I personally like selling to offline people – I enjoy talking to them, getting to know them, and putting together a deal.

Slide 138:

But maybe you want to keep everything online. No calling involved. If so, no problem, make a note of it and write down all the methods that DON’T involve what you DON’T want to do.

Slide 139:

By the end of the course you’ll have a refined list of actionable techniques, tricks, and methods to make you a lot of money. Pick one, or two, and get going with it. See how you do. Keep trying.

Slide 140:

Whether you lose a few dollars or make a few dollars when you begin is irrelevant (although it’s always nice to make some cash on your first try) you want to gain experience .

Slide 141:

So take notes, make a list, pick a few things on that list, and take action! Couldn’t be any easier... So you have no excuses, right?

Slide 142:

So take notes, make a list, pick a few things on that list, and take action! Couldn’t be any easier... So you have no excuses, right?

Slide 143:

There’s so much money out there. Money with YOUR name on it. All you have to do is go and grab it. So what are you waiting for?
