Internet Marketing Strategies – Buying Expired Domain Names
Sometimes somebody will take a lot of time and put a lot of effort into a website, build up the links, get it indexed, get lots of traffic to it and for whatever reason they let the domain expire. One of the internet marketing strategies you can apply to make money online is to buy these expired domain names.
When a domain name expires it creates a unique opportunity for you to essentially instantly inherit all that hard work that was done by the previous owner.
There are about 30,000 domain names, give or take, that expire every single day! Imagine that! These domain names cover just about every single niche that you can imagine, so no matter what your internet marketing business is about, you can take advantage of this opportunity.
What you need to do to take advantage of expired domain names is be sure you find a good one, right?? So what do you look for with an expired domain name-because all domain names are not created equal!
The first thing of course is you are finding one that has good traffic. The site may have gone inactive recently or a long time ago…the key is that it is still getting traffic.
The second thing is that you want to find a site that gets traffic in your niche. If your niche is quilting or crafts then you don’t want to buy a domain name about dog training, right?
When a domain name expires if nobody buys it then that traffic essentially goes into oblivion. So you can buy the domain and benefit from it quickly and easily.
You do this by redirecting that existing traffic. You keep it from going to oblivion, from being lost in “cyber space” by redirecting it to you existing website. Then that traffic becomes more leads and more sales for your products.
And when I say “your products”, keep in mind that this can be your own product or products for which you are an affiliate. They may be digital or physical products-it doesn’t matter! What matters is that the products relate to the traffic…otherwise you don’t have a good fit.
So the way this internet marketing strategy works is you are taking existing traffic, “rescuing” it from limbo and redirecting it to your squeeze page, your website, your sales letter, whatever, right? You do that with this targeted traffic and presto-chango you go from expired domain name to list building and sales.
