How to Get Rich Playing With WORDS!
How many times have you read or heard on the news that someone hit a state lottery? Winning Millions of Dollars.
The odds of winning a major state / multi-state lottery is for example: 1 in 120,526,770 is your chance of winning the most popular multi-state lottery in the U.S. Power Ball.
Trying to guess which of the 1 to 53 and 1 Powerball number from 1 to 42 will come out on is mind boggling and to make it even tougher; the rule is that you must get the 1 in 120,526,770 right on the night that you play.
No holding onto your ticket and see if it comes out in a couple of weeks. If you don't hit it on the date on your ticket. You can just trash your hard earned $1.00. If you purchased plays 10 then, just lost 10 of your hard earned dollars!
There is BETTER game for you to play with better chances to win (sort of speak)! One day as I was cruising down the information highway I came across some information that made me slam on my breaks! People were playing the NEW Lottery!
This Game is so cheap that it comes out to about 0.025342465753424657534246575342466 (my trusty calculator) per day to play. Being terrible with numbers I'm not even going to attempt to figure out what the odds of hitting this lottery is! One thing I'm sure of? this NEW Lottery has to have much better odds! What makes it special to me is; it's for those of US who love letters and words.
I called it the Name Game.
One Play gets you a whole year to hit! Just about anyone can play it for less than pennies a day (refer to the 0.025 number above ?.)
Simply come up with a domain name and buy it. Within days you could be on your way to Literally Millions!
Imagine if you were the one who came up with and bought Business.com.
You would have hit that Name Lottery for $8 million dollars! Yes, 8 Million! I repeat, that's $8,000,000,00!
Business.com is the current record holder for that highest paid domain name.
It took the spot from Compaq who paid something like $3.300,000,00 million for the the domain Altavista.com back in February 3, 2000. You probably recognize the Altavista name now but before Compaq bought it, it was likely a big dude in the world of internet. Has these Million Dollar Figures made you decide to Play the Domain Lottery. If so here is a tip or two to get you started. The most popular web address (not the same as email address) end in .COM. The second most popular is .NET
The absolute major combination hit is to have a .COM consisting of just one word i.e. business.com if that isn't available go for it's sister version business.net. These names all go for just under $10.00. (If they aren't already taken!
Just thought of one could you could you hold on please while I go check it out? ???? Thank you for waiting however I just tried business.TV and it is already taken and is probably up for sale. Once you purchase a domain name it's yours. You can transfer it, let it just sit there or SELL IT!
In fact there is so much money to be made in domain names that there are companies who do just that. They put you domain name up for sale on their site!
You are charged a listing fee; usually starting at about $50.00 to $250.00. If your domain is sold through their site you are charged a commission fee which can be anywhere between 5 - 10% of the purchase price.
During the research for this article, I came across one which charges just $0.79 cents to list a domain name and NO Commission fees.
All in all when you are getting paid $8 Million for simply coming up with a name.
I'd say that's a great way to hit any lottery, without having to get dressed, hurry to the convenient store before the deadline cut-off time!
Now: What would I do if I hit one of these Domain lotteries? I must state like many other multi-million dollar lottery winners. I'd keep working because words and writing is a part of me and is what I love!
Happy Domaining to You All!
