Product Domains Are HOT

I’ve spent a lot of time this year building-up a nice rolodex of Domain Buyers. Sure, I don’t have nearly as many contacts as the big brokerage houses but I am getting new people every week and working hard to identify exactly what type of domains they are looking for. In doing this I’ve become more aware of what kind of domains people are looking for. On top of this data, I am finalizing my survey results I took a few weeks ago and this does an even better job of solidifying my observations – product domains are IN – bigtime!

Product domains are hot because there is a clear formula for making money with the domain – sell the product! While most Domainers opt for affiliate programs like the Amazon Associates store, those who really want to make some money work-out direct deals or drop-shipping agreements. What always blows my mind is to see a GREAT product domain parked or developed-into a crappy site. This is a HUGE waste of incredible potential and Domainers with parked product domains should either develop them and start making money or sell them to one of the many hungry product domain buyers out there!

So how do you know if your product domain is hot? Easy, people should be making you offers directly. If you’re sending a million emails and putting your domain for sale everywhere you can and nobody is interested…you might not have a very strong product domain. Don’t dwell on it, just focus on your better domains. All good product .com’s get plenty of offers each week – they might be low offers but the fact that you’re getting offers should validate that your product domain doesn’t suck.

I always think that the best way to learn is by example – take a look at the lists below to see some domains that are optimizing their potential…as well as some that are missing-out on a GREAT opportunity.

Examples of Developed Product Domains

LightBulbs.com

WirelessRouters.com

NetBooks.com

IceCreamMaker.com

Examples of What NOT To Do With Your Product Domain

GuitarStraps.com

CellphoneCases.com

LaptopCases.com

Of course there are many more examples of great developed product domains. Epik has a good platform for building these out but even putting-up a simple blog with a few articles and ads can get you MUCH better results than leaving your domain parked. I am in the process of rolling-out a product domain option available from Linton Investments and look forward to sharing what we can bring to the table very soon!

If you are looking for product domains please email me directly – morgan(at)lintoninvestments.com. I currently have a nice inventory of product domains across some great TLDs including .com all at LOW prices.

    Uhh, Morgan, not sure if your ‘LightBulbs.com’ link is such a great example of a ‘developed site’, currently!! 😉

    Hey Morgan,

    I’ve been into these myself. Can you email your list of product domains that are .com, .net and .org with the broad/exact matches if you have them? Thanks.

    Don’t forget to put photos on your sites as well. Our Spanish wedding dress site VestidosdeNovia.tv doesn’t rank for regular search but does get quite a bit of traffic for image search. At some point I need to go back and look at why those two photos are the ones which rank best.

    @Leonard, its probably because you used the KWs as filenames 🙂

    Hi Morgan:

    I’m just starting the domain flipper adventure and I’m learn many things and one thing that I don’t know really well is how to determine the price of a domain name?

    I would like to email you (if you want it) to give me some tips and ideas about it.

    Thanks

    Makes sense considering it’s a consumer based world, there is an ad on tv that refers to the internet as the worlds biggest shop , cant say i disagree with that comment, although pleased to say i have two epik sites up and running and it seems like good links to put on my blogs

    NetBooks.com and IceCreamMaker.com are both just using affiliate programs while
    WirelessRouters.com is just a blog.

    GuitarStraps.com is selling a product directly, it’s just has a poorly designed site.

    Nice article Morgan. BTW, you need to correct the link to LightBulbs.com

    Talking of light bulbs, I am wasting a couple of similar domains with parking!
    EnergySaverLamp.com
    EnergySaverLamps.com

    Morgan, are you trying to give me conniptions because I sold ProductDomains.dotcom too cheap!? arrrrrrrrgh!

    heh… good article, and spot on. I have a several associates and friends with some keyword killer domains that they’re only…. parking! Wow! Making several hundred dollars a month as compared to making thousands with a simple CPA or directory buildout… I don’t know what they’re thinking. I guess making the BEST revenue possible hasn’t entered into their head because they have enough of those $300 a month domains to let them laze out and mold.
