    Domaining 2021 For some 5 or 6 years of middling .coms or new gtlds has not panned out. Some have told me they really wished they had abandoned domain names and put all their time and money into crypto. 2020 certainly has been a trying year around the globe in dealing with things much more important than domain names. But this is a domain blog so I am going to keep the topic on domain … [Read more...]

    -portfolio management
    -aftermarket listings
    -less drops, more flips
    -no drama.

    ... that's what I hope to differently in 2021 when it comes to domaining.

    not really.....I have my Defi, mushroom and tech domains, and a few others plus some dog sh& ....I have a website going live with more in the pipeline

    so......all good

    Fu-k predictions, what if's and what could be.....if something happens......it happens...I'm not financially dependent on domains....I want to invest in certain areas at the right price ( Geo's :xf.wink: ), will probably buy some domains that end up as a waste of money, some might be gold....but hey ho.....it will not break the bank

    The hobby will continue into 2021......more focus on domains with personal end user development might be the name of the game for me personally....we will see......

    each to their own......

    I am used to sticking to either Dan or Afternic landing pages for long stretches of time spanning 2 years and above.

    This year, I might try switching it up every 4-6 months and see if that has any effect on my STR (both positive and negative)

    I would like to start actively buying more again, unfortunately the vast majority of auctions at public venues are going for prices that don't really make sense with the math of an average portfolio turnover.

    Outside that I want to explore some new lander options.

    Incorporate more BINs on all my landers;

    Love this straight-forward way of business.

    No games.

    Differently? I'll actually finish building my portfolio system and finally launch it :)

    I'll likely spend less money buying new domains and a lot more time marketing them which should result in a lot more sales.

    Nice- it's a great feeling when your own thing is complete.
    This year I deviated from my focus on using my own landers to putting some names on marketplaces, and it was my worst year ever. But perhaps you mean marketing in terms of social media etc. Hopefully it works out for you, and would be glad to hear so.

    I think in this biz hearing about the methods/strategies we use to sell our names is rewarding but also almost a handicap. Just because not everything works the same for everyone, but the only way to find out is to try. Some names might do better in a setting than others of different caliber.

    It's easy to get stuck doing something in a certain way and expect different results. So I suppose for 2021 I'll keep that thought foremost not just for domaining but for everything.

    2020 was a big year for me in as much as i finally found a broker

    After trying to find a broker since about 2012 with no success and i only found a broker after my phone broke and i could not receive 2fa from godaddy on broken phone and godaddy not being able to verify me and me not beibg able to renew my domain names so i lost about
    60 donain names in my portfolio which i wasnt best pleased with as i had to let my domain names expire and try to buy them back for reg fee and i managed to buy a few of my lost domain names back but then i decided to change registrar which was a breath of fresh air and after trying to get a broker for 8 years at godaddy with no success i got a broker with current registrar within a day of asking for a broker which is a huge relief

    Because having a broker i can now do what i do best which is have tech venture ideas and buy the domain names of my tech venture ideas and let the broker do what they do best eg negotiating the best price for my donain names and at some point a sale will add liquidity to my domain name investing hobby thus making my domain name profitable etc

    And for some time now i have wanted to use my domain mames and my ability to swing trade options on the stockmarket to help those that are homeless and those living rv/vanlife in broken unreliable vehicles and struggling to get by in life and hoping to use my domain names to build a portfolio that enables me to do this although i would need to do outbound marketing for this but i have no interest in outbound marketing etc

    Plus i would like to use some of my domain names to create a
    Day trading fund
    That would allow me to day trade the stockmarket to buy secondhand minivans for people to live in to stop them wasting money they cannot afford wasting that money payibg rent and ibstead using that money to pay off their debys and live a debt free lifestyle which many in longterm debt can only dream of etc

    That said i already know the organisations that i want to help that can make this vision a reality

    If I had been buying bitcoin in 2010-15 instead of spending that money on .TV and TV.com acquisitions and renewals most which I eventually dropped....

    It's the same old story with Bitcoin. Everyone wants money for doing literally nothing so there's a lot of people ploughing their money into it without a clue.

    Domains take time, patience and skill to acquire and sell. I find it fun to do as a hobby and buying some crypto could never fill that void.

    Focusing on higher quality domains which I am willing to hold long-term. Less chickensh##
    Just sold a domain for 27K, bought it for $850 a few months ago. Realized that a good domain sells by itself.
    On a side note - will continue to keep buying physical gold and silver to protect against a possible inflation/ hyperinflation, so I can continue the domain game and scale up.

    I've started sorting names into tiers...pricing on top tier names (only a couple dozen) will get a monthly review of any BIN pricing that may be posted for a particular name (full retail with make offer option).

    Tier 2 two (a couple hundred) will get a review every 4 months and adjust any BIN now pricing that may be posted (full retail with make offer option).

    Tier 3 (many hundreds) will get a look-see every 6 months or so and adjust BIN's accordingly (only best half will have full pricing with make offer...the others will be well priced with buy now only).

    Tier 4 (way more than I care to admit) will have bottom dollar BIN's with no make offer. If they do not sell within 1-2 years, they will drop and/or I may give them away here.

    NO BUYING CRAP NAMES IN 21

    I will list more names in marketplaces. Some corporations seemed to prefer marketplaces/brokers instead dealing with domineers directly.

    Everything has its own time. Who guessed an 11yrs old bitcoin will beat thousands yrs old Gold? Crypto currency was fantastic this past few weeks:happy:.

    In terms of domaining, be very selective and hang on for the right time. Crypto investment may soon start down falls due to very high optimism, and ppl will start looking for alternative opportunities, like stocks, real estate, domain names, etc.
    my 2 cents,

    couldn't agree more, in terms of domain what is the current market outlook? Is it a buyers or sellers market now?

    There's always a clue. Many i-bankers lost their jobs because their positions was replaced by AI.
    It's foreseeable that they will build something up with their expertise to keep going. Most of them finally go into cryptocurrency. They have the top notch knowledge on how to control the price, and everything happened on Bitcoin make sense.
    The problem is many of us don't have this insight back in 2012, but now we see the clue after Bitcoin reached a ridiculous price.
