This may come across as a bit self serving, and it probably is, but I want to give some feedback about why I like my site, DomainQuestions.com. I also think it’s good to remind people where they can get answers to some of their own domain questions.
It seems like every day that I receive a question related to domain names. Some questions are about domain monetization, some are about general domain investing, and others are related to domain acquisitions or sales. It’s humbling that people feel that they can ask me a question about domain names and get a good answer, and I appreciate that level of confidence in me.
However, I stopped doing private domain consulting over a year ago. I don’t have the time to give to others on a regular basis, and time away from my own business development is detrimental to my bottom line, even while earning a decent amount of money from consulting. Despite this, I still receive many questions about domain investing, and I want to give a good answer since people took the time to write to me.
Enter DomainQuestions.com, a site I launched several months ago. Instead of saying, “sorry, I don’t do domain consulting,” I can let the person know I will do my best to answer the question if they take the time to post it on DomainQuestions.com. Not only does this become a resource for people who have similar questions, but it also saves me time answering questions I’ve answered in the past when I simply need to email them a DQ thread with the same question and an answer.
If the person doesn’t want to spend the time or effort creating an account and posting a question, why would I ever want to spend my time answering the question? If the question is private in nature, there are plenty of great domain consultants who will happily answer their questions for them.
In addition to the site being a resource for domain related questions, it has become a (slow growing) revenue stream. As traffic continues to grow, I’ve been fortunate to have a few advertisers on the site. It seems like a win/win.
If you haven’t checked out DomainQuestions.com, I urge you to do so the next time you have a question. I’d also recommend creating an account, adding your profile information, and helping to answer the questions that other people have. I appreciate it and they will appreciate it, too.
