Last week, an hour-long, wide ranging interview I did was posted on DomainSherpa.com. This interview touched on quite a few topics, ranging from domain acquisitions and sales to my development projects. I think it’s a bit on the long side, but based on the feedback I received, some people have been able to learn from it.
As we concluded the interview, Mike Cyger asked me if I had time to discuss geodomain acquisitions, and I obliged. You can find my interview about geodomain names and development on Domain Sherpa this morning.
I’ve bought and sold quite a few geodomain names in the last few years (Burbank.com, Lowell.com, Newburyport.com, Salinas.com, Secaucus.com, Weymouth.com, Rustenberg.com, and many others). I’ve also developed a few, and Lowell.com currently makes a few hundred dollars a month and gets over 12,000 visitors.
The interview touches on valuation, acquisition, sales, as well as on development and monetization. I am the first to admit that I’ve done a better job building and driving traffic to my geodomain names than monetizing them, but I discussed why I don’t think I’ve done a great job on making money with them.
I don’t consider myself an expert geodomain developer, but I’ve done a fair job in the space. Hopefully this interview will give you some insight into geodomain investing.
