    Domaining is certainly addicting and has the power to consume you 24/7 at least for the first 45 days before the reality dawns on you that maybe it’s akin to spitting into the wind and hoping it to land big on target. No more hand regging, lesson learnt!

    Please suggest ideas on how to go about investing 8k. What niche to pick? Average timeline in flipping a liquid domain?

    I would suggest you to purchasing 4L .com domains.
    Acquire western domains including vowels( 4L's are trading from $150 USD to $320 USD). You can easily acquire 20-30 domains with $8k budget (Also make sure that each domain has one or two end users).

    One sale will cover your investment.

    Average time: Depends on your financial-You can re-sale easily if you want to liquidate!

    It's just my opinion and investment strategies are changing time to time!

    Hi,

    Invest into something which you can understand the least. My opinion is to read various things about how trading is getting done on regular basis by so many friends here.

    You can see what got sold recently and some historical sales data here.

    https://www.namepros.com/forums/domain-name-sales.314/

    Please read.... read....read.... and try to understand what is hot at the moment, what is good for short/medium/long term and take your best decision based on what you are comfortable in.

    Thanks

    You should consider strongly the level of liquidity you require. Are you looking for a fast flip? Are looking to buy and hold? How much of a return are you looking for?

    Domain names have renewal fees beyond the purchase.

    You should do some careful analysis. This way you will achieve your desired results.

    I hope you will continue this discussion and share more about your goals.

    Best of luck.

    Thank You! i have watched 4L sales keenly and believe that the overall sales are few or low $ xxx specially for the random letters with no meaning and believe many are holding on to them for years with little hope. i rather like ebike which sold for 75k.
    The future i believe is in VR, AR, Blockchain or Digital but the number of players right now are limited and haven't got a hang of the right names to hold..I see most have names like augment and i already have Augment XD, Augment HD, VRJock, ARIndirect and Yah Digital.
    For the right names i can be patient for 3-5 yrs..Renewals not an issue for a 8-10k portfolio.

    This doesn't mean that my domains are since 2008...
    I reg them on a daily basis...
    Some handregs were sold even within 24 hours (inbound)... most handreg-sales - within 1-2 years.

    Regarding $8K...
    The easiest variant which doesn't require knowledge, experience and full time domaining - to buy/sell cryptocurrencies...
    Overall, you will get ~ the same ROI or even significantly higher...
    This is actual pulse. The best times for domaining are already in the past.

    + buy domains with quality traffic...
    And you may live just from their monetization...

    You seem to know what your doing. Doesn’t look like you need any advice.

    Don't buy anything for the first year would be my advice for anyone approaching any market.

    Sorry what?

    My advice above is based off my own experience. Generally speaking it takes about a year or so of decent hands-on experience for someone to get to a point where they can make good profit. This is a blanket statement for any market not just domaining.

    Just my opinion.

    solid advice that everyone should listen to.. but frankly, almost no one does. don't reg nor even buy in first year of domaining.
    just read learn observe and wait.

    "Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway."

    I am not telling how to do it but ask the right question:

    Who has turned $8K into a decent ROI or lost money? Find someone that has done that and than you can ask for advice.

    The impression i get is that it's a random market with few winners and most are groping in the dark just like me:xf.smile: The odds and external factors are too many to take a calculated risk.
    Salute the degenerate gamblers who hold more than 5000 domains..even to a rookie like me most names sound illogical when i compare them with real world names in crunch base. the only way out is to hold quality names which appeal to the big fish with deep pockets. That's hard for late entrants i guess to tap into the re seller market. The only possible hope is that of an end user sale which is stacked against odds with so much of supply, competitive pricing and obviously their own intelligence in hand regging a domain specific for their business need..

    Yes , it is hard buy not impossible. On average you are only going to sell around 10% of your portfolio each year. So, make everyone count. First, you have to accept that you will eventually own crappy names. Everyone does. But in time you will pick up some really good ones. The point is that you have to put your fear aside and jump in. Develop some rules of what makes a good name and have the discipline to stick to the rules. Where people lose it is when the rules are not followed and they buy based on emotion.

    Secondly, invest in yourself. Take a course on DNAcademy or others expand your learning.

    I had a new member ask for advice, I gave what I know and he made one sale $xxx mid on a hand reg within a week. Not a huge sale but the point is that he invested $15 on a name he chose based on market and sent emails and made phone calls (Phone call?! Yes! Phone Calls!) and made his first sale. No fear. No reservation. "Start small , but think big" is what I told him.

    You are not looking for advice.

    You are looking for the validation of what you think you already know and understand.

    It seems your way is through making your own hard mistakes and even then you will blame something else for undesirable outcome.
