Domaining is a serious business which needs time, energy and serious efforts. It required at most level of dedication and sincerity like any other professions. In spite of all these dedication and efforts still the success rate in this profession is very low. There are very few successful domainers who are performing consistently over many years and decades and then we have list of domainers who are struggling to get even their first sales. The average industry sale through rate is very low 2-3% and thus out of 100 domains only 2-3 gets customers either in the form of end-user or resell investors. Anyway, I personally believe this sector needs some special quality and the domainer who posses those attributes succeed here and believe me money is not in my top three list. These are 1. Knowledge, 2. Creativity 3. Patience and if you have more money along with these above qualities your learning curve and struggle duration would be shorter but if you only have money and not the other three qualities than I don't think anyone would be able to save you from bankruptcy What is your view, out of all these four deciding factors (including money) which one is the most important main deciding factor mainly shaping career of a domainer and defining whether he is successful or not. Other than poll your candid views and thought provoking arguments/ justification are most welcome to make this discussion engaging, entertaining and inspiring. Best wishes!
