I’ve always wondered what tools domain investors may have created to help them with their domain investing businesses. I think people who operate and manage large domain portfolios must use a variety of tools to effectively and efficiently manage their holdings. I wonder if any are already using artificial intelligence (AI) tools. I also wonder what role AI will play in domain investing in the future.
OpenAI is an artificial intelligence company that recently opened its ChatGPT chatbot to the public. Michael Cyger shared that he was checking out the tool to ask domain name related questions:

I have seen others posting similar tweets about asking the chatbot questions about domain names and domain name investing. Seeing some of the tweets and responses, it got me thinking about how AI can be used to help domain investors.
AI could analyze lists of expiring domain names to potentially highlight the most valuable based on sales data from NameBio. Mike Mann wrote about how AI could scan deleted .com domain names:
It could scan all the deleted .com and review statistically relevant aspects and create a score, not price. Could never do as good as me though 🙂

AI could help domain investors find prospective buyers for their domain names. Brian Null shared what happened when he asked for a prospect list for one of his domain names:
i asked it for the top 30 companies that should buy one of my domain names… gotta say, it generated a very relevant list

Domain investors could use AI to evaluate their own domain names and potentially highlight pricing discrepancies. It could help domain investors determine what domain names to renew or let expire. It can be used to analyze domain names and potentially even rank them by worth. George Kirikos posted a number of tweets this morning asking ChatGPT domain name related questions.
In the future, a domain investor could use AI to review domain names listed for sale on various sales platforms to find underpriced domain names. Perhaps AI could help investors find domain names that have value beyond what investors are able to see.
AI could be helpful to domain investors for drafting outbound sales emails. It could also be used to craft responses to inbound inquiries and offers. This might be particularly helpful when an investor’s primary language is different from the target audience.
I am sure domain investors could come up with many more uses for artificial intelligence. It is probable that AI will have a big impact on domain investing once its widely available for investors to use.
