    My 2019 In Numbers

    In 2017, domainer Nikul Sanghvi created an AMA (Ask Me Anything), in which he shared his journey through domaining. His data-driven approach has inspired and influenced many other investors.

    Here, in what could be one of the most notable posts at NamePros, Nikul shares specific details about his domaining income for 2019, as well as comparing that to previous years. This post also contains three years worth of domain sales data. It’s a must-read.

    An Ideal Outbound Email

    After taking a course on product management that contained a topic on user outreach, this investor has shared three core points from that course that can be applied to outbound domain sales.

    More specifically, these points can be applied to outbound emails. The art of outbound sales can be difficult to master, so discussions like this may help with your own education.

    Topic by: @Arpit131 Acquired for $2.68 Million in 2017

    Domain investor George Kirikos has uncovered yet another domain name sale. Usually, George’s discoveries are from publicly-disclosed SEC filings, but on this occasion the sale was listed in a UDRP case.

    The UDRP was filed against the domain name, and as part of the defense, the domain’s purchase price was revealed as $2.68 million. This would place the domain as the second-highest domain sale of 2017.

    Share Your Domaining Goals for 2020

    January is an opportune time to reflect on the past year and to set goals for the year ahead. It’s also often beneficial to post these goals publicly to be accountable for your goals once the year ends.

    Domain investors are asked to add their domaining goals for 2020 to this discussion. Some goals include specific sales numbers and portfolio increases.

    The Nikul Sanghvi thread was an interesting and very important contribution to the NamePros community!

    His insightful comments and his business data could serve as an example and model for those serious about the domain name business to emulate.

    You said it best James, " it's a must-read".
