Okay – so first I have to say this. I’ve been wanting to use the word “Bonanza” in a post title for a long time now, so this is satisfying! Bonanza means – a source of great and sudden wealth or luck; a spectacular windfall and that’s exactly what I’m doing this month, and every month going forward.
So what the heck am I doing? Each month I will offer one of my domains with a Minisite for sale! I thought this would be a great way to help new domainers get a pre-built, SEO optimized mini-site along with a great Domain name to go with it! On top of selling the domain and mini-site the buyer will also receive a free copy of my book Domain Flipping: How to Profit from the Domain Name Boom (which sells for $50) and a free 128×128 ad slot on my blog for a month (which also sells for $50!).
The idea here is simple. Everyone is trying to sell domains or mini-site development services. I thought it would be a good idea to bundle the two together and make a package that will ensure that the buyer not only gets a great domain but also gets a great site, education, and promotion all in one! To kick-off this monthly event I have a domain near and dear to my heart – TaxRebateChecks.us. This site already ranks #5 in Yahoo when searching for “2009 tax rebate checks” (first page no scrolling!). The site has Google Adsense and Amazon books for monetization and includes targeted video content from YouTube!
To keep things exciting I am going to be selling this domain in auction on my blog! Simply post your bid as a comment to this post. Of course – I want to start-off with a bang so I’m going to start the bidding at $99 (Literally $1 savings off buying my book and the ad slot!). I will sell the domain to the highest bidder by Sunday, July 26th at 6:00PM PST – so without further ado – let the bidding begin!
