Good morning everyone! Its almost Friday!! I hope this blog post finds you well. Well alot has happened to TNTNames.com in the last few weeks. We have been recently nominated into the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. 2012 Domain Blog of the Year! We cant wait to get you more up to the date info and whats going on with domaining. We all have had a few slow months selling our domains this summer so far. I am thinking since its getting close to the end of the summer that we will see sales pick up again. I for one haven’t made a decent sale in about 3 months. I was averaging before this slump about 2 domain sales per month. We are however making some money with our affiliates through our domain lists. I will be tying to post one list per day to gather enough money to go to Traffic 2012 this year.
Who knows maybe I will get a decent sale by then and be able to afford the trip. As of now I have been trying out a new strategy. I owned over 950 domains names as about 3 months ago. I decided to really take a hard look at these domains and ended up letting many of them drop. I am trying to downsize my portfolio to more relevant domains to the current market. As a novice domainer I was regging anything that sounded cool. I have learned that I may have thought it sounded cool but no one else did. :).
So after reading many of the blogs out there I have started targeting better domains and hopefully I will have a robust portfolio of high value domains. This will take some time, I will have to drop some names and when I sell some I will have to purchase domains of higher value. This will take me some time but I will update you on my progress. As of now I own about 750 domains and am still dropping some irrelevant names.
So with all this said I wanted to also update you on how TNTNames.com is doing. In 3 months we have gotten over 85 orders through our godaddy affiliate totaling about $1k. We have also sold some domains through the Snapnames.com and Namejet.com affiliate program totaling about $250. So we are getting off to a nice start. We will keep getting more and more motivated to make this one of the best blog sites that domainers will go to in the near future.
We also want to thank all of our readers and supporters in the last 3 months. We would like to thank Domain Shane for giving me a little kick in the ass to make this blog better, Kevin Faler for helping us with his motivation. We also would like to thank William H for his awesome ideas and talks keeping us in the loop of what is going on around the net. We have some big things coming and hope you will join us for the ride!
