Several years ago, I asked people who visit my blog if they work for themselves and are involved in the domain industry full time. I am pretty sure that number has gone down over the past few years with lower PPC payouts and I would guess a decline in domain sales for some.
I know of someone making the transition from part time domain investor to full time, and we were discussing what percentage of people are involved in the industry as their main source of income vs. those who invest in domain names to supplement their income. My guess is that the far majority of people who invest in domain names do it more as a hobby than their primary source of income.
I’d be interested in knowing whether your domain business is a full time profession for you or if you are doing it part-time. Feel free to comment and let me know if you want to make it a full time profession (if you do it part time). Do you think someone can make the transition to full time domain investor right now?
