Daily Poll: Do You Invest in Cryptocurrency?

12

Obviously one of the biggest topics in the world right now is cryptocurrencies, ICOs, tokens, and anything else crypto related. Billions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency is traded daily on exchanges and platforms throughout the world.

In my opinion, quite a bit of money and attention from the domain name world has moved to cryptocurrencies. Today’s daily poll asks whether you invest in cryptocurrency. I am interested to see what percentage of domain blog readers are also involved in the world of cryptocurrency. If you answered yes, I would be interested in knowing if you have pulled money out of the domain space to invest in crypto. If you answered no, I would be curious if you are thinking about investing.


Daily Poll: Do You Use Domain Brokers to Sell Domain Names?

2

I don’t regularly use domain brokers to sell my domain names. There are some exceptional brokers, but I typically do my own marketing when I am looking to sell a domain name. I have worked with several brokers before – both when buying a domain name and selling a domain name. There are certainly some standout brokers in the industry who do a great job on behalf of their clients.

Daily Poll: Do You Manage Your Own Inbound Leads?

4

When someone inquires about a domain name I own, I negotiate with them. The negotiation is one of the more riveting aspects of domain name ownership, and I enjoy it. Some people don’t feel comfortable negotiating and others prefer to use an expert – like a domain broker – when they get inbound leads. The thinking (from what I understand) is that they will end up with a better price if they work with someone who negotiates for a living, even after commission, than if they negotiated on their own. A negotiation can be stressful and time consuming, so handing off a negotiation to someone else is desirable for some people.

Daily Poll: Do You Invest in ccTLDs?

ccTLD domain names remain popular in many countries. In addition, companies, especially startups, continue to use some of the more popular ccTLD domain names for their websites – either because they’re “cool” or they make solid domain hacks. .TV, .IO, .ME, .DE, .CA, and others regularly appear on the DNJournal sales reports for achieving impressive sales numbers.

Daily Poll: Are You a Full Time Domain Investor?

3

I always assumed the vast majority of people investing in domain names do it part time to supplement their income. Investing in domain names full time isn’t easy, and I think it can take quite a bit of time to get the hang of it and be able to fund the growth of the business while earning enough of an income to support yourself or your family.

I left my corporate job in November of 2007, and I haven’t really looked back. Some might say earning some income from this blog would mean I am not a full time domain investor, but it’s a small % of my business revenue and my investment business is what allows me to have the insights I share and the time I have.

In any case, today’s poll question is: Are You a Full Time Domain Investor? You are invited to vote in the poll below and are welcome to share additional thoughts in the comment section.
