    Hi everyone! I liked this format, so here's all about me...

    What’s your name?
    A: Kim Hanks

    Where do you live?
    A: I live in Houston Texas

    What’s your level of expertise?
    novice, intermediate, expert, etc.
    A: Novice

    How much experience do you have in the domain industry?
    years, experience, etc.
    A: As a webmaster – 15+ years. As a Domainer – Just getting started

    What would you like to specifically learn first?
    how to buy a domain, domain history, best selling strategies, government policies, etc.
    A: I would like to learn how to sell domains, what makes a domain good, importance of the tld, and strategies around selling.

    Are you currently working on any projects or ideas?
    A: I have created a small portfolio and am trying to market and sell some of the domains.

    What are your short-term goals in the next year?
    A: Next year I want to become a professional in this space.

    What are your long-term goals in the next 5 years?
    A: Next 5 years I would like to have a brokerage

    What was your first domain you purchased?
    A: KimHanks.com

    Why did you start investing in domains? Please tell us the story.
    A: I never really considered that domains had a dollar value until it appeared on my GoDaddy account. I had created domains for the projects I was working on but that was my total thought process around domains. I tried earlier this year to create a new domain only to find it already existed and it had a very expensive price tag. Then just for fun I started to come up with random domain names to see if they existed and if so, how much they were asking for them. This got me hooked on thinking about names and after I had either created or purchased a bunch of them I figured I should look into selling them as well. Now I’m hooked and I want to know all there is to know about the industry!

    Hello Kim .. and welcome to NamePros! :)

    The one very important thing you need to know about domaining that most newcomers get totally wrong, which in turn leads them into disaster ... is that 99% of the time, the price tag you see on various domains for sale have absolutely ZERO correlation to the actual value of the domain.

    The vast majority of domains are priced completely unreasonably .. usually by domainers looking for that hail-mary once in a lifetime ultra lucky sale. Those sales certainly do happen on occasion .. but certainly not frequently enough to justify basing your business on.

    Best of luck to you going forward! Part of the admin team (@Eric Lyon) is also from Houston (currently living on the road since the floods .. hope you weren't badly affected).

    Nice introduction @Kim Hanks - I think you'll like it here at NamePros. Best advice for beginners: Read a lot, buy slowly at first, and be patient.
    Good luck!
