ROTE 029: Adam Dicker and How to Buy & Sell Domains
The concept of buying a brand new domain name through a domain registrar for the low price of registration and flipping it for quick cash is rare, yet it still happens on a daily. What’s more unique and important is knowing how to find these domains before they become of interest to others.
Just think about it… thousands of domains are being registered this very moment and another 60,000 domains expire daily. How valuable will they be a day, week or year from now when someone else wants it?
Just like any legitimate business, there’s a lot more to domain buying and selling than just coming up with a good name and hoping for the best.
This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
