People have asked me, “Why do you like domains? You are smart, go make your money in real estate or the stock market if you want a challenge.” Why do I like domains? I am smart and have been successful in other arenas. Domaining does present people with a new way to generate income. I am attracted to that opportunity to make money. Domaining does not require a lot of money to start up. Ironically, conventional wisdom says to skip those cheap hand registrations and focus on buying quality domains at a discount. Otherwise you end up with 400 crappy domains. Trust me, I get it. Domaining in my opinion is when someone buys and sells domain names. You can surely be a domaining hobbyist, I am. Perhaps the line between what a domain hobbyist and a domain collector are could be a bit more similar than is currently thought of. Do you see any differences or similarities between the two? Ah, to be a domain pro! But why do I like domains or domaining? I love ideas, writing, communication, numbers, and people. Clearly ideas have been the biggest draw towards domaining. I think another part of the allure with domains is that if I have an idea I can attempt to register a name to fit the idea. It is all an attempt to make money. The very first domain I sold was on SEDO. The domain was (still is) LoveSmiled.com for $100. I realized then that SEDO was going to get their money. I joined NamePros. I was told, Do not register names . . . read . . . listen . . . watch . . . understand . . . watch . . . converse with trusted people . . . understand . . . go for it! Like YOU, I did NOT listen or adhere to the great advice. I had a problem, multiple I’m sure, but the problem was I had way too many domains for most places to qualify for their free services. I am not a very technical person with regards to technology. Tough Domains was a godsend. I was able to start using their platform to have my domains listed for sale. They had everything that I needed. For those of you who have had any success with selling domains, understand what a tool Tough Domains is for Domainers like me! Yeah, a few of you are technical enough to do it all by hand from scratch. Forget that, lots of life to live and don’t want to waste it learning how to make a web page from scratch. Thank you @toughdomains. To those that are reading, what have your experiences been like with aftermarket marketplaces? Have you found an aftermarket that you really love? What features do they utilize that you love?
