I saw a well-writen article about domain names on The Business Insider today, and I want to share it with you. The article is titled, “Why $10,000 For A Domain Name Is Still Cheap,” and it was written by marketer and domain investor/advisor, Alan Dunn.
Dunn provided strong arguments for paying a significant sum of money for the right domain name. He dispels two common arguments about why domain names shouldn’t be worth a lot of money – some people hesitate paying a great deal of money when the domain owners were able to acquire them cheaply, and that some people believe a domain name isn’t actually a valuable item. Dunn’s real world comparisons are pretty strong.
To drive the point home (that domain names are cheap) Dunn compared the cost of traditional media like billboards, radio advertising, and mobile advertising to the cost of domain acquisitions. Expensive marketing campaigns can be fleeting, but a domain name can be used indefinitely.
If you haven’t read the article yet, I recommend checking it out. The next time someone balks at purchasing one of your domain names for your asking price, you might want to send them a link to the article.
