DomainSponsor Vs.InternetTraffic.com Our Two Month Test Yields Shocking Results: DS Wins

Back in April we were approached by DomainSponsor.com to do a test on their parking system.  DomainSponsor.com said they had spent a lot of time and money on revamping their parking system, had all new people working for them and wanted to know how their new and improved system would stack up against Frank Schilling’s InternetTraffic.com

I agreed to do a test with about 19,000 domain names I had parked over at InternetTraffic.com (IT) with two conditions; one, they had to guarantee me the earnings of the domains by matching what they were earning at IT for the two month period and second, I would publish the results good or bad.

I was very honest with the DS folk, I thought they would lose their shirt on the guarantee as the last time I was with DS prior to InternetTraffic the portfolio did not perform well to say the least.

The test started May 1st and run until July 1.

Our revenue guarantee deal was $994 commission/day for 61 days.

Over that time, DomainSponsor (DS) earned  $1,054 a day winning 67% of all domains that earned revenue during the test.

Of domains where minimal revenue was eliminated, DS won 8,207 domains by 10% or greater and lost 5,879 by 10% or greater.

The average % lift on names won by DS by more than 10% was 363%.

Finding that another parking provider even having the same upstream provider performed better on some domains is not a new concept.

We have a/b tested our domains for many years amongst the providers which performed better overall knowing that the worst return is leaving all domain names parked with one parking company.

We dropped DS from our testing a while ago but now having run the test we are going to be leaving the “winners” with them while moving the “losers” back to the platform they performed better with.

Here are the results:

Description Total Domains Winners Losers % won
All domains with revenue 19790 13247 6543 67%
Winners/Losers by +-10% (minimal revenue removed) 14086 8207 (+10%) 5879 (-10%) 58%

Live From The Big Reveal Of The DomainNameSales.com App Now Live on iTunes Store

Frank Schilling just presented his new DomainNameSales.com App at the TRAFFIC conference.

First the bad news is the APP its not available for an Android device.

The Good news is it is available on the iTunes.com store now.

The App “gives you power like no other platform”” said Frank Schilling

Some interesting facts from the presentation

“85% of all leads comes through link on top of landing page.”

This is not news to us at MostWantedDomains.com as we have had a link to our offer form on top of all of our landing pages for over 10 years but good to hear confirmation of that from a larger portfolio holder.

Frank gets around 400 offers a day generated off links from his landing pages.

On the parking from InternetTraffic.com is working on changes to the  landing pages and changing the color and look of the sales link.

Some of the features of the App allow you to with one click set prices, negioated price with the buyer.

The buyer get auto generated emails each step of the way but you never have to leave the app.

With the app you can Google the name of buyer, email address of buyer, Google keywords and get other info.

If you domains are parked at InternetTraffic.com the App will pull that info as well so you can see your visitor counts and PPC earnings.

Additionally the system takes person who previous made offer back to the negotiating page not the landing page if they return to the domain.

The system gives you the ability to price domains live.

Once the parties agree to a transaction the system sets up a check out page with escrow.com for the buyer to agree to.

All offers are held in the system, so that you can re-engage a buyer or send a message to the buyer if you change your mind and want to try to an accept a previous offer.

Allows selection of several brokers with stated brokerage fees, including MostWantedDomains.com which will be added to the App shortly after the TRAFFIC conference.

The app also has a social networking component that allows you to ask your friends who also use the App for pricing advice individually or all with one click.

The only restriction on the system is that is does no accept TM typo’s.

See The Video On How The InternetTraffic, DomainNameSales.com App Works (it’s Cool)

InternetTraffic.com just posted a 2 Minute video on how their new patented DomainNameSales App works.

To see the video click here.

The product looks very cool, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it to try it out.

Basically it lets you in a very simple App format Sell domains, handle offers, negotiate price without the hassle of emails.

The App will send the emails to the buyer for you.

The App also lets you select one of several brokers if you want them to handle the sale for you.

Sales can be closed by Escrow.com with the brokers being paid out of the proceeds.

All and all it looks to be the next generation in domain name sales and I’m looking forward to the full presentation during the TRAFFIC conference  at 10:30am on Tuesday.

The New DomainNameSales.com Is Live & Here Are The Highlights From Mr. Schilling

A couple of hours ago the folks at InternetTraffic sent out an email that the new and improved,  DomainNameSales.com platform is up and running.

I reached out to Frank Schilling for some of the details of what’s on the new platform:

So from Mr. Schilling’s mouth, here you go:

Redirect, disable, and change targeting of individual parked domains in real-time:

We offer a URL forwarding setting in individual names should a user need to quickly direct a name to some place other than our landing pages instead of changing name servers.

There is an enable/disable option to completely turn off a domain and return only a blank page to visitors.

We allow a user to lock a domain into a static set of keywords based on the domain’s category to alleviate concerns over the indeterminate nature of keywords associated with PPC ad feeds.
Improved negotiation process and CRM for buyer, broker, and owner interactions
Set followups to reach out to buyers in future.

See more information on the buyer, a new customized negotiation page that the buyer gets cookied back to once you begin negotiation.

An advance mobile technology (coming next week)

Streamlined checkout process for buyers including Escrow.com credit card transactions with automated broker commissions
Sell your name and start the closing through your escrow.com account, commissions automatically deducted at source for the broker.
