Over the years, I’ve learned there are many, many ways to make money from domain investments.
As you can probably tell simply by seeing the names I’ve sold and what I own, I personally prefer to purchase descriptive keyword domain names like DogWalker.com, Torah.com, and EventManagement.com among others. These are exact match terms for keyword searches like professions, business fields, objects…etc.
Each week in the aftermarket sales reports, I see dozens of other domain names sell for decent figures, and I can only assume most were hand registered by the seller at some point. There always seem to be sales of brandable keyword domain names like ClearBell.com and made up terms like Vipee.com (both names sold last week via Afternic).
People can make a nice living selling brandable keyword domain names and made up terms, in addition to exact match keyword domain names. Of course, there are plenty of others, like ccTLD, gTLD, and IDN among others, but for the sake of this, let’s keep it .com.
I am curious what types of domain names you prefer for your investments. Please vote in the poll below, and feel free to discuss.
