ChinaTours.com is #11 with a $200k Price tag

Morning Folks!!


In November 1996 I plunked down $100 and Today I went to the cashier and they gave me $200 Grand. This deal took about 1 year from the initial contact. A simple domain. A great domain because it is not ambiguous and it is well defined. I was surprised I did not sell it much earlier. Many contacts over the years.
Now this was a nice deal, don't get me wrong but it adds value to another domain I own. A much more universal domain. But this sale sets a foundation for the next. I will write about all this in a future blog post. Until then, I have to read the contract for #12 and see where we are.


Have a GREAT Day!
Rick Schwartz

    Congratulations!
    They also got a good deal. They only need to sell a handful of tours to make up for it, and then they become the leader in this industry as more of the world wants to see China.

    WE should ALL UNDERSTAND that selling domains cheap UNDERCUTS and UNDERMINDS the entire business where in like a cheap prostitute!!! Everyone should network together and shoot beyond the stars concering our asking price and stand firm to raise the stakes!

    Excellent sale Rick, specially given the current market condition.
    A category killer if there ever was one.
    Congrats!
