Daily Poll: Are You Reinvesting in Domain Names or Other Investments?

My company is primarily focused on buying and selling domain names. When I sell a company-owned domain name, the money goes towards my company overhead and gets plowed back into domain name investments. When it comes to company assets, my focus is on domain names.

I know of several people who operate companies that invest in a variety of things. They buy domain names, invest in physical real estate, invest in cryptocurrency, and they make other investments. When the cryptocurrency returns are through the roof, their investment capital shifts to those markets. When domain name markets are hot, they reinvest their profits into domain names.

When you sell domain names or other investments, are you putting your capital to work with domain names or other investments? Share your answer in the poll and fee free to expound in the comment section if you would like.

  1. You have to be super sharp and super lucky to score huge returns in domains now. The low risk easy profit days are gone.

    Fortunetly, the Internet provides lots of other investment opportunities that can be very profitable.

    • I totally disagree. You have to do due diligence about the needs of a market and acquire the dot com that matches the search terms that help those markets reach their customers and leverage profitability. You have to be articulate in explaining the connection between a good domain name and extending the reach of a company deeper into a potential customer base. You have to be savvy about how a generic domain name can work in tandem with a brand to strengthen that brand. If you solve real problems with domain names that contribute to a company’s ROI, you have the sweet spot.

      How many investments today produce a 1,000% to 20,000% to 400,000% return on investment? Not too many that I know of. This is not just a yesteryear scenario, these are the returns I have gotten in the last year. You make your money in the buying of the domain: researching a market and availability to find something that is actually going to make a difference for a company, and contribute to their bottom line, because without that, you have a loser domain. Win win is a beautiful and sustainable approach to making a difference.

  2. Domains continue to be where I’m putting over 50% of my investment dollars. The rest goes into stocks and a I started experimenting with angel investing a couple of years ago and might make one or two more angel investments this year.

    I have a small amount of play money in cryptocurrency but I see that more as gambling vs investing at the moment so don’t look at it like I do my investments.

    Always looking at potentially buying real estate so started looking in SF but likely not buying until next year or the following as we’re still figuring out what part of the city we’d want to live in/invest in long term.

  3. I’m fully invested in domains but have been putting a little back into crypto lately. Only dealing with new ICO’s with a decent project idea that could actually work in the real world.
