I had been curious to know what drop strategy/approach domainers have adopted when it comes to holding some names and dropping the rest. Having seen a lot of domainers following an aggressive drop strategy it got me thinking how many domains domainers drop on an average from their portfolio as I feel this could be a valuable metric to understand and develop a strategy of not holding on to or, getting attached to a particular name, and only acquiring quality names. So, How many domains have you dropped from your portfolio this year? Are these drops mainly from what you handregged or, even those that you acquired a long time back but see no potential in no longer retaining it? What made you feel its no longer worth retaining? I recently asked this question and got many interesting responses from the industry leading domainers on Twitter that maybe worth looking into Jason says he cut his portfolio by 12% which seems a significant figure, and is further planning to liquidate another 12% of it, and replacing it with better ones! According to @Bob Hawkes he has dropped some 250 names or, about 38% of this portfolio which is a massive figure, as is the portfolio. Nevertheless, its important to diversify investment into different sectors, amazing advice! @TERADOMAIN says he DROPPED 0, which is surprising and justifies his user name QualityNames, I 'm really surprised that some people are consistently able to maintain a 0 drop rate and 100% hold. This was an interesting observation. I'm on the same boat right now though very apprehensive if its a wise decision to hold on but great too know some are doing it! @Keith DeBoer liquidates about 5% lastly @Robbie has dropped only one, still very impressive How many have you? What are your thoughts on dropping names? How has this year been?
