Discover how to invest in the Domain Name Real Estate Market

To Make over  $1000 a day and earn over 1000% ROI …(Sometimes
I Make More)…I Work Less Than 30 Minutes A Day!!!


You Don’t Need A Web Site.
This is a fail proof system that
I have created, if you can’t achieve similar results I will give you a
100% REFUND and let you keep my products for your troubles!

I will be personally coaching you along the way!

 

“This is the first time I
have been satisfied with an investment, after loosing
$46,000 in the stock market I was scared to get involved
here. I saw the 100% guarantee and a full refund so I took a
chance.

Thank God that I did, I am now
making over $1500 a day
,
and my profits keep growing. The sky is truly the limit with
this system. You changed my life forever, THANK YOU!!”

Alan Reed


The only investment strategy with an average of a 1000% ROI …

If you are looking for
the highest possible return with the lowest risk look no further. Do
not waste your time or money in physical real estate, bonds, or the
stock market. There will be no risk in what we teach you.

This is not your
typical boring e-Book that simply talks about a “theory” or  a
“hint” at how to make money in whatever scam they are selling. You
will have step by step instructions that have been tested time and
time again with success! If you follow our plan layout you WILL
be successful!

You will be able to
get started with no money at all, or as little as a few dollars when
we show you secret ways to acquire Internet Real Estate. The best
part for you is you have a choice of selling for a lump sum of cash
or holding and building value, or enjoy the already established
value.

You will be investing
in an untapped market, using strategies that are not known, and can
be found nowhere but here. If you can’t even double your investment
in the first month I will personally work with you to achieve
success.

You will not find
anything like this ANYWHERE!!!

I searched for days
and days to find an investment guide but was unable to find anything
even close. Do you know why? There isn’t any published, I am going
to make my competition very angry by releasing this information.
This is the best guarded secret on the internet.

Could you use
an extra $5,000 this month? How about an extra $1,000 a day…every
day? FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!

You don’t need to be
good with computers, or even have a computer once you purchase your
investments. You will just collect checks in the mail every month,
or if you decide to sell your investments you can receive large sums
of cash daily!!

What is Internet Real Estate? I have never heard this term before …

The only reason I used the term Internet Real Estate was to
discourage those who do not have a true desire to succeed in a new
market. I do not want my customers wasting their valuable time
trying to learn something they will not have any interest in.

Internet Real Estate is another name for a Domain Name (i.e.
ebay.com, inetdirectauctions.com, eb4y.com). Many people ask me, “how
can someone “own” a domain name, and how does that work?” Guess what–it is very simple, and in my ebook I explain step by step how
this can be accomplished. But in a nutshell, it works a lot like physical real estate,
in that you
will own the rights to internet property.

Why is this system so great?

  • Very low risk
  • I SHOW YOU STEP BY STEP HOW TO MAKE THIS WORK!
  • No employees needed
  • No advertising or marketing required
  • You control how much money you want to make
  • This system has been perfected and tested so you do not have
    to make the same mistakes I did when learning
  • You can work from home
  • Spend your day with family or relaxing
  • You control your life, you set your own schedule
  • Quit your stupid job

Are you ready to
see some proof of these numbers? Here is a screenshot of one of my
portfolio’s earning
$241.29
on the 6th of February. Half of this money was all made while I was
asleep!!

 

 

Here is another
one of my portfolios – this one is from a different site – These
are mostly International Domain names, and misspelled domains. As
you can see I made another 
$116.45 while I was not even at the computer.


This was the week before, I sold a domain name for

$3,827.77
that I only paid
$12
for initially!


This is another example of a Domain name I paid

$12
for and turned around a few weeks later and sold it for

$199


Who can make this system work?

I believe that anyone with a strong desire, drive and dedication for
success will achieve it. Before now, I only shared this secret with
a select few people that I could trust, and who I knew would not
leak this information. Why have I decided to release this system
now? Well, after much hesitation I finally decided that I would
prove to the “home business” and “quit your job” community of
aggressive marketers that you really can make money online. Too many
people have come to me for advice on starting an online business,
telling me that they have tried every “work from home” course they
could find and never make a dime from them.

I assure
you, YOU WILL make money with my system, I have spent over $50,000
dollars to perfect this system. I have tested it from every possible
angle, every type of investment strategy, and used my mistakes to
build a bulletproof strategy. You will be successful, and I will
make you successful, as I do not accept failure. I have trained over
250 selected clients of mine, and only one, that’s right ONE out of
250 were unable to make at least $100/day from my system. This will
not happen overnight! Do not expect to be rich tomorrow, do not go
buy a Porsche and quit your job yet! I have watched to many people
make similar mistakes.

The only
place money comes before work is in the dictionary!

Remember, you have nothing to lose here, I am
offering a 100% refund if you are for any reason unhappy with your
purchase. I am the only one who is taking a risk. If you give me a
chance, I WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL! You do not have to worry
about doing this alone, you will instantly be brought into my
network of success. You will have access to all the same resources
we use to find, analyze, and market our domain names. You will even
be given an instant buyers list of domain names! We also end up
buying 10% of all our customers domain names!

Do this
for your family! Your future! Your retirement!

Take
back your busy life!

Retire
financially independent and worry free!

 


“Over $500 a day…”
My portfolio is doing incredible! I thought I was an
experienced domain name investor, but you proved me wrong!


I’m now averaging over

$500 a day in profits and growing. I still can’t
believe it. Thanks again. Your system has given me a new
life!

the catch?

Websites, Advertising, Affiliate Revenue, Royalties & Commissions

Step-by-Step Guide for Domain Name & Website Profits and Flipping

Published by:

Domain Name & Website Profits and Flipping Guide

LIMITED TIME PRICE CUT AT $19.99!

 

My Secrets of Domain Name & Website Investing and Flipping Manual with 200+ pages and detailed images of how I purchase the right domain names and earn money from them until I slap up an instant webpage and earn even more money and finally flip the website or e-business. I do it over and over again!

 

 

I layout the steps to create websites in a matter of minutes to hours and use my strategy to make it worth thousands within a few months such as this one below which I spent two hours on!

Repeatable process that I teach:

– How to find and buy expired domain names

– How to earn revenue parking and redirecting domain names

– How to develop an established website instantly from expired domain names

– How to build a website without any experience in a few minutes

– How to earn affiliate and advertising website revenue

– How to find and sell Dropshipped products

– How to make a service or member based profitable website

– How to make it rain free traffic on websites

– How to flip the website for huge profits

– Rinse & Repeat!

 

I show you how to make it rain legit FREE traffic to destroy Adsense revenue!

 

The best part is, I reveal how I generate revenue at every stage of this system – there are over thirty different revenue streams I use to create profits from beginning to end!

I show how I flip domain names and websites for huge lumps of quick cash, how I park domain names and generate thousands of dollars with them before calling them into service as a website that will be established ready to build onto or ready to flip.

You won’t learn my techniques anywhere else, that I can assure you, being able to HARNESS mass amounts of FREE TRAFFIC has infinite possibilities; here is an example of how I generated $69,167.08 IN 7 MONTHS WITHOUT ADVERTISING! using my traffic harnessing techniques and a brandable domain name I turned into an E-Commerce site in about 30 minutes:

 

bolky_7_months_69000

 

HOW ABOUT INSTANTLY CREATING A CYBER SECURITY COMMUNITY WITH ALMOST 70,000 Double Opt-in Subscribers in 3 Months? Subscribers that have agreed to let me e-mail them special offers and deals!

 

 

ORGANICALLY THIS WOULD HAVE TAKEN MOST WEBMASTERS FIVE YEARS TO CREATE AND THOUSANDS OF MAN HOURS!

 

Statcounter_Redirects_2

 

IN THREE MONTHS I TURNED A $500 PURCHASE INTO AN ASSET WORTH BETWEEN $30,000 – $50,000 WITHOUT HAVING TO INVEST A PENNY IN TRAFFIC OR SEO!

THERE ARE NO RULES TO THIS SYSTEM, I DON’T HAVE TO CREATE WEBSITES TO GENERATE REVENUE – LOOK HOW MUCH AFFILIATE INCOME I GENERATED WITH A FEW CLICKS WHILE VACATIONING IN HAWAII!

A QUICK $6,000! THE HARDEST PART WAS GETTING IN MY CAR TO DRIVE TO THE BANK TO DEPOSIT THE CHECK!

 

commission_junction

 

 

You will get to see my exclusive formula for showing website value using variables and statistics that no other website appraisal service even considers. Using my appraisal formula you have a better chance negotiating the price you deserve!

 

Websites have a lot of hidden and potential value, the amount of opt-in users it has, social media hits, domain name authority, logos, content, inbound links, domain name proper value, domain name and website age, organic traffic and industry sector value are just a few of the variables I use to boost website value and sales price.

 

Fifteen years ago I sold my first website for $15,000 and I was laughing all the way to the bank not knowing I could have gotten $50,000+ for it, the buyer resold it within six months for over $80,000. This failure made me realize that websites have a lot of hidden value and if you don’t know them and understand their value you will get ripped off and exploited – I can teach you how to fight back and negotiate a fair price!

 

I have sold over 2,000 domain names and over 500 websites grossing well into six figures. My expired and parked domain names still earn me over $2500 a month of free passive income. I usually only work about half the year and travel the rest of the time, here is a year and a half of domain name and website revenue from MINT.com that shows a fracture of my income from over 50 sources that are explained within this package – here is part of my NET PROFIT$130,000!

mint_domain_names

 

I layout how I find the perfect domain names that already have traffic, pagerank and domain authority and slap up a website with NO SCRIPTING KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED in a matter of minutes.

I also show how I group domain names and websites that have little value individually into a package deal. Here is an example of 64 domain names that were previously earning parking revenue and affiliate revenue but finally exhausted and packaged into a sale of $4500, before selling those domain names had already earned me around $10,000 so that is a total near $15,000 that virtually nobody else on the planet would understand that they still had value and how to show that value and generate a sale:

 

portfolio_sale

Cashier Checks and Money Orders fill my mailbox as well….

1300_check

2780_check

 

I show you three main types of domain names that I invest in, I will show you which domain names are great for parking revenue, which domain names are perfect for redirecting to your new websites and which domain names are brandable and have the potential for great profits through development.

 

Here are some domain names that I strictly use as passive income from parking at Domain Sponsor: $241.29 this day – averaging around $200 a day over time. These are proven revenue domain names that don’t yield results when forwarded to websites and are not worth developing. This revenue is perfect for reinvesting in more domain names and in developing websites further.

 

domainsponsor

 

I use another parking account that hosts domain names that are perfect for redirecting to other websites, affiliate programs and many other mediums I use to generate revenue from. These might also include domain names that already have pagerank and were established websites which I show how I recreate them back near their original website theme, essentially bringing back to life the original website ensuring the best possible conversion rates and user sign ups.

eBay’s PowerSeller program offers provides many benefits to us as sellers. The program is structured in three different levels.

Selling on Amazon

Amazon has quickly become sellers haven, it has surpassed eBay.com in daily traffic. According to Alexa.com which is a top web information company (ironically owned by Amazon) Amazon.com is currently ranked #5 most visited US traffic rank and eBay.com is ranked #9 as of June, 2011. However globally both eBay and Amazon have their own domain names for each country they provide service too so total traffic still favors eBay when we take into account those international sites. Reguardless, Amazon being the highest ranked E-Commerce site in the United States means big money for United States sellers.

The Amazon seller marketplace has a very different sales model for sellers. Instead of buyers bidding up on items against other buyers sellers bid down to get the lowest price against other sellers of an item.

With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) you ship your products to Amazon, we store them, and we ship them to customers on your behalf from our network of fulfillment centers.

The basic steps of Fulfillment by Amazon include the following:

  1. You send your new or used products to Amazon’s fulfillment centers.
  2. Amazon stores your products in our ready-to-ship inventory.
  3. Amazon fulfills orders on your behalf, either orders placed directly on Amazon.com or fulfillment requests you submit for sales not on Amazon.
  4. Fulfillment by Amazon picks your products from inventory and packages them.
  5. Amazon ships your products to your customers from our network of fulfillment centers.
  1. When your item sells, Amazon collects the sales price and shipping costs from the buyer, deducts a referral fee of 6 to 25 percent of the product price, a variable closing fee, and a per-item fee of $0.99. The $0.99 per-item fee is waived forPro Merchant Subscribers.
  2. Here’s how it works:
  3. Sale price of the item
    Shipping credit
    –  Referral Fee of 6-25% of the sale price
    –  Variable Closing Fee
    –  $0.99 Fixed Closing Fee (waived for Pro Merchant Subscribers)
    ————————————-
    = Total deposited to seller’s account
  4. The tables below list the Referral Fee percentages and Variable Closing Fees for each Marketplace product line. SeeShipping Rates and Services for a table of shipping credits.
  5. Referral Fees Charged to Seller:
Product Type Referral Fee Percentage
Amazon Kindle 15%
Automotive Parts and Accessories 12%
Baby Products (excluding baby apparel) 15%
Books 15%
Camera and Photo 8%

Amazon applies some very complex (and apparently top secret) math to maintaining rankings for their top 5,000 books. Sales are measured hourly, daily, and monthly – and rankings are determined by even the amount of time BETWEEN sales. Books in the top 5,000 keep their rankings very consistent – and Amazon enforces some “averaging” of sales to keep your book from jumping up to number one just because you got all your relatives in New Jersey to buy a copy at exactly noon on Tuesday (but, do it if you can…for about 30 minutes you’ll have the most incredible ranking!)

Changes in your Amazon sales rank is a great measure of the success of your marketing efforts – hopefully a nice bump upwards in rank corresponds to a book promotion or event. These are usually temporary, as it is consistent an concerted effort to move the sales rank significantly. A general rule of thumb (first proposed by Morris Leventhal of FonerBooks) is to note your rank twice a week for four weeks, then divide by 8. This will show your “average” Amazon sales rank. Checking any more than that is really meaningless, since these ranks can change on an hourly basis. You’ll find that titles that sit within the top 5,000 do not usually fluctuate by more than 20% (and Amazon is trying to contain even this level of fluctuation). Titles in the 10-20,000 range may jump or drop by as much 50 or 60%. Titles under the 50,000 mark will swing wildly.

Amazon Sales Rank – the “numbers”

So – what does all this mean? How MANY books am I selling?

Well, that’s a tough question, but here’s some very general numbers based on average Amazon sales rank for our Dog Ear Publishing titles listed on Amazon.com(updated March 2008):

Rank           Weekly Sales
1,000            90 copies
10,000           60 copies
100,000           16 copies
300,000           12 copies
500,000           1 copy
1,000,000           1 copy per month

Now, this isn’t going to hold true all year long on a unit basis – sale rates change per season – but it will hold in the RELATIONSHIP between sales ranks.

So, theoretically, sales ranks don’t change without some action having occurred – meaning your rank won’t go up without a sale, and they don’t fall unless some other book has more sales in the past 24 hours (though the numbers get pretty funky in the “under 50,000” range). Your titles rank will drop if you have no sales, but the rate at which it will drop is dependent upon how consistently strong your sales were BEFORE it stopped selling – sort of… It’s a bit of a bell curve that hits the middle ground most severely – books with long term, strong sales drop slowly, moderate sellers (under 50,000 to about 250,000) drop faster, and weak sellers (500,000 and down) drop positions very slowly. As we said, books ranks are calculated every hour of the day.

How can I apply this to my book?

Well, you really can only apply it in hindsight… use Amazon sales rank to check your progress as a marketer. Think about what rankings of competitive titles mean – are you moving up or down in relation? Use it to choose your next publishing objective or marketing program plan.

If you have a brilliant idea for a book – and you just know it will sell – and there is nothing like it, well, you might just be right. But, a little research never helped! True expert marketers understand that a smart bet is to target a book to a successful market, providing a COMPLEMENTARY product to expand the ultimate size of the market.

For perspective, here’s the data from last year and what each of the largest retailers reported for 2006 sales:

Amazon.com – $10.71 billion ($7 billion in media sales)
Barnes&Noble – $5.3 billion
(BN.com was $0.433 billion of this total)
Borders Book Group – $4.06 billion

Total $20.06 billion
