Someone who belongs to the same domain name reseller program as me earned that amount in January.
Every month the program publishes the top performers. While I was pleased to have earned a spot in the top 10 with my own personal record, I was floored when I saw the top earner pulled in nearly $60,000.
Usually the #1 reseller earns around $40,000.
Shows you how lucrative the domain name business is these days. And it makes sense. With the U.S. headed for a recession, more and more people are looking for ways to make money at home.
Why So Hot?
Thousands of people start websites each month, and that number grows drastically every year. So it’s a great business to be in these days.
Websites are cheap to start and Web hosts are making them easier to build.
So even if your site is not about website building, surely you know people offline who want a website. Why not join a reseller program and benefit from their new venture?
You’ll earn lifetime commissions on their domain name, hosting and any other web related products they purchase from your own branded reseller site.
So the residuals can really pay off over time. I am still earning commissions from people who bought their sites when I started reselling domains in 2002.
Remember, domains and hosting have recurring fees for customers. So as a reseller, you earn a commission for all domain and hosting renewals… for each customer. Your income will snowball overtime if you keep signing up new customers.
So if you know people who want to start an online business or even build a personal website, you could join a reseller program, send them to your turnkey website and earn a commission on every order placed.
Control Your Destiny
You will have the opportunity to customize many functions on your reseller site, including your prices. So you determine how much you’ll profit from each sale. You can even setup discount pricing for friends if you wish.
Customer support and online ordering are both handled by the registrar, so you don’t have to worry about answering emails, phone calls, tech support etc. All you do is send people to your branded reseller site and wait for the commission.
So if you’re looking to make some extra cash on the side, why not give it a go? The domain biz is scorching hot, especially now!
