In Part 1 of this review I covered five books by Jerome Robertson, Satish Gaire, Darryl Lopes, Kevin Hamm and Ryan Andes aimed at helping you get equipped with knowledge on buying and selling domain names. Thanks to the awesome feedback received, I am happy to share with you 5 books on buying and selling domain names in this review I’ve dubbed Part 2.
1. 5 Steps Domain Flipping – Flip New Domains For Instant Profit
If you are eager to get started and don’t have time for long winding introductions then this is the book for you. At only 34 pages, it is definitely a quick read. In fact, some of the reviewers have confessed to having read the book in under 30 minutes! Written by R.R. Flipper an Internet marketing enthusiast with over 12 years experience in e-commerce, website and domain flipping, advertising and search engine marketing, this book is bound to give you a quick insight into the business.
A sneak peek into this Kindle Book shows that it is bound to deliver on what the author promises; a quick yet effective method to domain flipping, in five straightforward steps. These are; Choosing a City, Choosing a Business to target, Find and Register Domain, Create a Small 1-Page Website and Email Prospects.
Tackling Step 1, R.R. Flipper’s approach and advice is that you choose a medium-sized City with a population of 50,000 to 200,000 as the larger cities tend to have more competition. In Step 2, the author promises to show you exactly what type of businesses you should target and how you will find them and in Step 3, offers to show you how to find and register domain names.
For the friendly price of US$2.99, 55% 5-star rating from reviewers and unlimited simultaneous device usage that the kindle book comes with, this should be a worthwhile purchase and read.
2. Domain name flipping: the complete guide and tricks to selling your first domain in less than 48 hours
This book available in both Kindle and Paperback Editions has got to have the most tempting title in this article’s lineup. In his 200-page Kindle and 234-page Paperback Editions, Author Gregory McGuire testifies to having sold his first domain within four days but reckons that you don’t have to wait that long.
Published in October 2019, this domain name reselling guide promises to “expose you to the most current information associated with the practice of domain flipping, including an orientation on two very helpful Google tools that many professional domainers are still not aware of.”
Gregory offers some candid advice on what every new domain investor needs and doesn’t need. Daily access to a computer, Patience, Money (even US$100 is sufficient to start), More patience and A couple of hours every day to work on domain names are some of the things you’ll need. On the other hand, An ego, Prior experience of computers or domain names, Coding experience (he tackles how to use WordPress) and Staff are some of the things he says you don’t need.
A preview of the book also offers some resources for further reading on a daily or weekly basis. Some of these include NamePros.com, DNForum, DomainSherpa.com, Domaining.com and DNJournal.
3. Flipping Domains: An exciting way to invest in digital assets
This has got to be the newest (Published February 12, 2020) and at 24 pages the shortest of books in today’s review. Authored by Derick Downs, the book offers to be “a beginners’ educational book to help learn the art of domain flipping.” Since domain flipping is the gist of our review, domain brokers are the men and women that have earned a name out of making it a business. Derick Downs according to his Amazon profile is a “seasoned domain broker.” So, who better to learn from than one who has worked his way up to achieve seasoned status?
Wikipedia on the other hand lists Derrick as “a San Diego-based entrepreneur notable for creating a large number of websites and business ventures, including Pokeymongo, various novelty websites such as Ship Your Glitter and Drop A Deuce, and advertising service Follow Per Click.”
Whereas a sneak peek into his book does not give much away, in chapter one Derrick states that the book will discuss his digital hoarding disorder as well as revenue that anybody can generate from websites and domain names. It currently has only one 5-star rating on Amazon. Derrick is also the founder of Downs Agency and lists domain brokering as one of the things he specializes in, an additional indicator of his interest in the business.
4. Domain Name Flipping: How to Buy & Sell Websites to Make Fast Cash Online
Let’s face it, many of us might not be entirely satisfied with our 9 to 5 jobs. However, just by going back home for some well-deserved rest or using the weekend to engage in your hobby will often leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated to tackle the next day’s or week’s tasks at work. Now imagine if your hobby or method of unwinding was by flipping domain names…
This where Kyle Sarasota’s 29-page book on domain flipping comes in, with the promise of showing you “a Foolproof Way to Start an Internet Business While Working Part-Time.” His book, he says, will teach you how to properly search for a profitable domain name/website, the exact criteria to follow and how to evaluate a website prior to buying it.
However, buying is only half the equation of flipping. Therefore, Kyle in his book offers to teach you five ways to sell your website fast, as well as what to do once you have a buyer ready to grab your website. A sneak peek into the book shows that the author is a stickler for focus. His advice is that you have to focus on just one business idea and then give it your best when it comes to business execution. That way, he says, you will be able to stay in the game and not be fazed by those who are always on the lookout for “the next big thing.”
5. Domain Flipping Formula 2017: How to Turn $9 into $100
If you disregard the year in the book title, this is by itself a very enticing prospect to read. The rule for any business to remain afloat is to make profit. Now imagine if your profit was nine times what you paid for the item… that would surely grab my curiosity. I hope it grabs yours too.
Timothy Spears’ “Domain Flipping Formula 2017” is a 63-page book made up of 16 chapters touching on the basics such as different types of domain name extensions and different domain names in chapters three and four respectively. Chapter Nine touches on how you can choose domains that you can flip and make a profit from Chapter ten goes on to share three steps you can take to buy and flip expired domain names.
The book will also tip you on how to win a domain name auction and the value in aged domains in Chapters eleven and twelve respectively. Timothy also shares in the sneak peek that once you have your system up and running, you’d require about an hour or two a day to keep the cash flowing in. “Many of my partners, students and friends are earning $500 – $2,500 per week from flipping low cost domain names” he says in the book.
The best time to start
Is now. All the above mentioned books make reference to free resources you can use to get started on your domain flipping business, the only cost being the domain name’s purchase price. I hope that whatever book you choose to purchase will provide you with the tips you need to get rolling and earning that extra, if not full-time income. Remember, just like with any other business, it will take time to get comfortable with the process and to start earning a profit. Your patience and determination to succeed will be of utmost importance. I hope you have enjoyed reading this review. Do drop me a comment below on what your thoughts are and I’ll be sure to respond. Happy Domain Flipping!
