Sold my third domain in a little over a week all from me being proactive and using some tools to reach out to end users. Nothing I can retire on, but all three were four figures. An important thing that I’ve learned from this process (as opposed to my normal list it on Sedo/Godaddy/etc… and wait for an offer) is that I can see which domain names I own that get a response from potential end users. This has definitely helped me get a better idea of where to put some money into some hand registered domains and I actually had my largest hand reg day ever yesterday when I picked up almost 150 domains in one shot (which may not be a lot for some, but I only own around 600 domains total so it was a large quantity for me). It’ll be interesting to see if I can keep initiating some sales. Here’s the list…

My Top 5 Picks – a misspelling for Seoul, or can stand for SEO and then something with the L. – good brandable domain for an online pharmacy. Just don’t sell prescription drugs to the unprescribed people. – huge keywords even though it is a .net. Health is most important so it is a popular place to be online. – another one word .com domain on Namejet (there’s been a ton lately). Can’t think of a commercial purpose off the top of my head but it’ll ring up a grand. – I prefer Apple Orchard but this is a good backup option.

My 5 Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders – for the single person who doesn’t want to sleep alone at night. – a product, not sure the best product idea ever though, especially when some people wear shorts without boxers underneath. – information becomes more and more valuable and the ability to analyze information is key. – sell prints of iconic American history on this domain. – been a while since there’s been a .TV domain worth mentioning, social networks are hot, maybe a podcast on this site talking about the latest from the popular social networks.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000) – there will be some diehard baseball guy/girl out there who will buy this domain even though “A Baseball” isn’t the best sounding site in the world.
