As I said, thats simply my view of things. I like to think of an investor as one who spends more capital and intellect but less engagement in businesses, vs an entrepreneur. By engagement I mean sweat and effort. Applied to domains it translates to acquiring quality domains with a large audience that are going to have good price tags. Vs. grinding your way using hand regs of all sorts. First scenario requires more capital, yields guaranteed results. 2nd requires more work, results can be satisfying, but vary (lots of failures). After experience, Id get rid of the low xxx xxxx domains, just to save time and effort. You spend $200 per domain. 5000 domain portfolio. $1.000.000 spent. Quality domains, large audience (can be used in many categories/industries). $5000 price tag at 1% str would give you 50 sales or 250k per year, 240k profit, 20k per month. 1% str, $5000. Bare minimum. Finding 50 quality domains per year at 200$ to replace ongoing sales shouldnt be too hard. I see domain investing as more capital, and intellect. Works if you know what you are doing. Thats just my view, dont take it personal. Edit: after a quick stint with shooting the moon, I'll never do it again. Good domain, good price. Cheap domain, cheap price. Otherwise go home.
