About Us:
Dennis Becker began his Internet marketing
career in 1998 by selling on eBay while still running
a full time retail business. Beginning in 2002, he
became interested in Internet marketing, and
spent 3 years trying virtually everything with
dismal results.
One day, frustrated and beat, but unwilling to quit,
he devised a new strategy to simplify the entire
process, starting with a mindset makeover. That strategy changed his life,
and he wrote about it in the classic "5 Bucks a Day" book, available at
Amazon, or through a link in the resources section.
He also opened an "Insiders Club" in 2007 to help more experienced Internet
marketers achieve their first $1000/day of profits by following proven,
sometimes little-appreciated, business models to receive amazing results.
Rachel Rofe has been a full time Internet Marketer
since June 2006, and has been on the Internet for over a
decade.
Although she's dabbled in many fields, she's mostly
known as a membership site expert, copywriter to the
"Internet Stars", and offline business expert.
She dedicates her time to learning as much as possible,
both in Internet Marketing and in life. She joined the
staff of Earn1KaDay in 2010.
You can read more about her on her blog at http://www.RachelRofe.com.

Becoming a Player in the Domain Name Game
Introduction
In its infancy, the Internet boasted serious competition in the business of
buying and selling domain name. Lawsuits were thrown around and hefty
checks were written to purchase well-known names. Today's market tells a
different story. No longer a baby, the Internet poses new challenges in the
domain name business.
If you are thinking about entering the domain name trade, or have already
stepped foot in its icy cold waters, my advice will greatly help you. I will
teach you the value of domain name purchases, and what to look for when
buying and selling in the business.
Strategies in the Domain Game
Sedo.com, an international company that offers an online marketplace for
buying and selling domain names and websites, reported over $80 million in
revenue generated from the domain name business in 2009. On any given
day, Sedo.com lists around 15 million domains for sale.
As an entrepreneur, you can no longer rely on buying and selling the highly
touted single-name domains. Nike.com, Walmart.com, and others aren't
exactly sitting at your fingertips.
So, you have to be clever, inventive, and consistent when working in this
business. Success is simply a matter of seeing opportunity, going after it,
and having a little extra wit when it comes to decision-making.
One thing is for certain: the domain business has consistently thrived during
our economic downturn. The ability to produce a little sunshine through a
cloudy economy will ensure success for years to come.
In an economy riddled with high unemployment rates and a sluggish market,
getting into a business with a consistent 30% annual growth is probably one
of the wisest decisions you can make.
It's in the Value
Typically, online property increases in value over time. Unlike stocks or real
estate, you have the option to choose a product that is generic or descriptive

enough to have an evergreen quality to it. Being evergreen in the online
world is essential because your domain will exist forever if you choose wisely
- constantly driving traffic over time.
If you invest wisely in the right online property, and sit on it long enough for
the value to appreciate, you will see a serious return on your investment.
When searching for domain names to purchase, you need to keep a few
things in mind. Find domains that are generic, defined by categories, and
contain only 1 to 2 words if possible.
Create a list of all possibilities: hobbies, interests, niches, and vertical
markets. If you really sat down and thought about it, your possibilities are
endless.
Before you overwhelm yourself, stick with what you know. The better you
understand a category, the easier it will be for you to choose a particular
domain of interest because you will be able to think of something you would
type in your browser.
Keep These Things in Mind
Don't limit yourself to dot-coms. Though dot-coms have a sustained
dominance over other domains, alternative extensions hold great value. The
same goes for foreign country domains. They're also priced discernibly lower
than dot-coms. You may end up paying 3 times less.
Some great domain ending choices are: .net, .info, .biz, .tv, and your origin
endings like .ca or .uk. Not only will they help define your business, but they
will also provide great SEO, or search engine optimization, benefits.
If you purchase unique domain names, then your annual cost is around $10
to maintain it. That is why you find so many dead-end domains out there.
Savvy businesspersons buy the domain and hold onto them because it costs
so little to do so.
If the domain is clever enough, you can even bring in a small income from
advertisers hoping to reap some benefit from an accidental click. If you have
quality pricing for ads on your domain, then you can certainly make a good
profit from its sale.

Knowing the Market
When you are in the market for purchasing domain names, you need to
know how much traffic the name gets and how it ranks in search engines.
Find out who the original registrant is. If the seller isn't the original
registrant, you will want to know how many others have handled the domain
name and what was posted on it in the past.
If the site had shady or unethical content previously, run the other way. You
can research domains at Archive.org.
Once you buy a domain, you need to figure out what to do with it. Like any
investment property, you want to add value to it. Determine what your
budget is and how you can improve your purchase. Give the website a
unique identity that invites a recurring audience. Provide content above and
beyond the advertisements on the site.
Things to Consider
Remember that anything you add to the domains and site you purchase will
add value. The longer you hold onto it, the greater the increase of search
engine rankings, and the larger will be your audience.
Find sites that don't cost too much to maintain over the course of several
years. This will allow you ample time to boost rankings, grow your audience,
and add valuable content. When it comes time to sell, you will have quite an
asset to offer.
