Default Domaineering: How to MONETIZE my domain names/websites?

Hey guys. I posted a thread about a domain name I was trying to sell, and was told that sites have to be monetized in order to be worth anything. So, I would like to know if any of my other domain names would be worth developing. And if so, what is the best ways to monetize it, to make it profitable for me, or to sell?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! :-)

I'm not sure that I agree with whoever told you that. There are plenty of domain buyers and sellers who never go to the trouble of building out a site. You probably just need to find different places to post your domains.

Which of course brings up the question where? Zach Booker did a WSO a month or two ago about domaining...it's worth picking up if you want to increase your chances of getting good money for these domains.

Good luck!

I do not think that you have to build an entire website, too, to be able to sell it. Other domain names manage to be sold to very high prices just by being good domain names. By the way, among the list that you have posted, 50items is the catchiest for me. Good luck in selling those domain names!

Domain flipping and website flipping are two entirely different things. Most people confuse the two and will tell you it has to be making money or has to have PR or traffic or backlinks. NONE of that is necessary when just flipping the domain name. I've been doing it for 10+ years and virtually all of the domains I've sold are "raw". Just the domain name itself.

That being said, if you want to take the time to develop the domain into a website and get it making money, you will be able to tap that market looking for established websites.

You can put ads on them and let it earn for at least 2 or 3 months.

What you mentioned was that you were trying to sell a domain name. So, I made my assumption. Coming up with an interesting and brandable domain name with a high-ranking keyword can already help you sell it at a high price. And yes, selling a website is a different story.

Why don't you install wordpress and publish articles from article directories and promote it on social networks. Original articles are best but if you don't want to invest time and money in writing articles, free articles from article directories will do.

For domain flipping, ur domain name has to be catchy and a high cpc keyword. You can try domain parking too.

Hi,

Can you gentlemen and ladies list here where you list your domains for free to sell them and where you get free appraisals ?
I don't mind paying commissions on sales to the site but don't want to pay anything if it doesn't sell like listing fees regardless of the sale.

Check my Username! What does it say ? Check out my other posts and you'll probably agree the Username fits me well. :)
And, don't forget to subscribe to my threads. After-all, they're meant to help you find new ideas, customers and leads.

In my humble opinion, most of these scripts lead you to think that your domain is worth way more than you'll actually ever get.

I hope you have success.

The truth is you do not really have to create an entire website. You can surely sell a domain name that is good. Having a catchy domain name is already an edge. The only thing that makes an entire website more profitable is due to the fact that it already has its own traffic. Nonetheless, you wouldn't want to bother yourself by promoting a website that you will sell in the near future.

I half agree 100% with this first statement, but only half agree with the second. Most domains I've sold for hundreds or thousands of dollars were appraised at practically nothing. Others were appraised at MUCH higher than reasonable. The bottom line is, an automated appraisal, no matter how sophisticated, just can't reason like a potential buyer.

Well, thank you so much everyone! I was about to try to sell FightsDepot.com on Flippa, but I learned that I can't sell a website that has adult content, so now I'm back at square one with that one. Hopefully I can sell one soon though. I'm keeping the faith. :-)

Are you tired of earning pennies from your parked domain names? Here is a method to earn real money from your parked domain names.

Whether you plan to develop your domain name property and build-out a killer website, or just "park" your domain name as an investment, there is a way to make your domain name potentially pay for itself each and every day.

Depending on the effectiveness of the organic search results of your domain name,
you may find this method of domain monetization all you need to make your hard-won domain name pay for itself...over and over again!

Let me set expectations:

  • There is no money needed (other than the cost of your domain names)
  • No up-sell or additional information to buy
  • There is a little bit of work to do, but nothing you can't do in a couple of hours
  • This method is intended for beginner, to advanced affiliate marketers
  • I assume that you have purchased, or plan to purchase domain names
  • I assume you already know how to purchase a domain name.
  • NO, you will not become a millionaire over-night!
Ok, here we go!

1. Purchase your Domain Name(s).

2. Visit one of the many Affiliate Marketing Partner Networks and signup to become
a Publisher. If you are already working with an Affiliate Partner Network, jump to #3 below. If not, here are a few of the notable Affiliate Marketing Partner Networks:

  • Commission Junction
  • Linkshare
  • Clickbooth
  • Neverblue
  • Clickbank
3. After you've become a member of a Affiliate Marketing Partner Network, select an affiliate or affiliate product that closely matches the "intent" or content of your
domain name. For example, let's say you own the domain "mypetstore.com".

Through your Affiliate Marketing Partner Network, become an affiliate with a company that has something to do with Pet Stores or Pet related products, like Petco.com or 1-800-PetMeds.com

Note
You may also approach this from the opposite perspective and purchase a domain name based on an affiliate product you would like to promote. For example, let’s say you want to promote something to do with cars. Alright, go purchase a domain that has a "car" component to the domain name like "mycardomain.com".

4. From your Affiliate partner, get the link for a marketing asset. Extract the direct link to the affiliate page or product from the affiliate asset.&nbsp; Here is an example.

<a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=V8an4wm**MI&amp;offerid=56753.10000181&am p;type=4&amp;subid=0" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"> <img alt="1-800-PetMeds RX/300x250.gif" src="http://www.1800petmeds.com/banners/linkshare/Max-Molly-RX/300x250.gif" border="0"></a>

So, the direct affiliate link is:

"http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=V8an4wm**MI&amp;offerid=56753.10000181&am p;type=4&amp;subid=0"

Note: You can confirm the link by copying it into the address bar of your browser. It should send you to the affiliate page, or affiliate product page.

5. Go to PinnedURL - URL Shortener and Affiliate Marketing Toolsand create a short link of the Affiliate link from step #4 using the PinnedURL link shortener. Make sure to pick a category too. You may also customize the short link by assigning a custom extension alias. For example, your short link will look something like this:

"http://pinnedurl.com/myalias"

6. Go to your Domain Host and Forward the parked domain to the short link you
created at PinnedURL.

That's it! Every time your domain name is visited, traffic will be forwarded
through your domain name to your affiliate site. When a visitor purchases from your
affiliate, you make money! Far more money than the pittance your domain host pays
you for parking your domain name with them.

As you can see from the six(6) steps outlined above, this method requires a little extra work on your part (arguably so), but the result is a greatly improved return on your domain investment that far exceeds the paltry sum your stingy host gives you. In fact, this is what your host is doing anyway, so why shouldn't you do the same and keep all of the money?!

In full disclosure:

I have no stake in any of the Affiliate Marketing Partner Networks I've mentioned above, or any of their Affiliate Advertisers. However, I do promote the PinnedURL services.

PinnedURL provides free link redirection services as well as link management and click analytics and a variety of affiliate marketing tools. The free click analytics feature, however, is particularly useful in this method of monetization because it allows you to easily see the number of visitors to your domain, and ultimately the number of clicks being sent to your affiliate or affiliate product page.

I hope you find this primer on domain name monetization useful. Be sure to visit:
PinnedURL - URL Shortener and Affiliate Marketing Tools

Smooth Sailing,

Brendan Hardy

P.S.
A final thought… This method works well when paired with the strategy of buying expired domain names that still have residual traffic. Think about it, free traffic sent directly to your affiliate page!

Shorten your long Affiliate URL links:

I looked at your domains, and the only one that looks like it might, and I mean might, make you $20.00 is collegegiveaway. The rest are just run of the mill and would not spark interest in anyone.

If I were you I would concentrate on the 50items domain and build a nice amazon or use a combination of affiliate networks and do something with it. If you put the work into it you could have a profitable site in 6-12 months especially if you use it along with pinterest. Then you could either enjoy the monthly income or sell it for a nice profit
