I wish this wasn’t the last day of April. It’s been a pretty solid month for my business, and I hope the same can be said for you. My domain name portfolio is relatively small, so my good month doesn’t necessarily mean anything on a macro level. My guess is that the improving stock market is giving more people and companies confidence in spending money on things like domain names. I am not an economist, so that is just a guess.
Here are a few thoughts and updates this weekend. You are welcome to share your thoughts and updates as well.
I had a good lunch meeting with Alan Shiflett and Rich Green from Afternic last week. It’s always nice to see these guys and catch up and chat about business. One downside to working for myself is that I don’t really have people with whom I can “talk shop.” It’s great to be able to get together with people like Alan and Rich.
Efty is now advertising on DomainInvesting.com! I appreciate their supporting/sponsoring my blog. It takes a considerable amount of time and effort to publish an industry blog, and I appreciate the support of industry companies.
Speaking of advertisers – Payoneer Escrow’s 50% off escrow offer for the month of April expires at the end of the day today.
There was an interesting article about domain names on CircleID last week. In an article entitled, Domain Names Are Fading From User View the author discusses domain names and touches on domain name investing. In the article, the author wrote that “[d]omain name speculation will slowly become a quaint shadow of its former self.” I am curious about what others have to say about this.
If you have any meaningful one word .com domain names priced in the low to mid 5 figure range, I would be interested in seeing them. I am looking for exceptional real dictionary .com domain names similar to what I already have and have sold (Travels, Stallion, Honeydew, Embrace, Exclaim, Accurate…etc). Please don’t waste your time or mine and send anything else, or I probably won’t even reply if you can’t respect this request. For instance, if you even feel the need to explain the meaning of the domain name, don’t send it.
