New gTLDs Will Affect *All* Portfolio Owners

Posted on 15 April 2014 by Andrei

Now sure, the “super premiums” probably won’t be affected but let’s be honest, not even the best domainers have portfolios that consist only of amazing domains. Pretty much everyone has “so-so” domains and it’s precisely those domains that will be affected by new gTLDs.

Let me explain why.

Quick Friday Tip: Start Using Two Screens

Posted on 11 April 2014 by Andrei

Your initial reaction might be something along the lines of “Why do I need *two* screens?” and it’s understandable, I had a similar one but after I started using two screens, I never looked back. Maybe you’re a domainer, maybe you’re an online entrepreneur, maybe both. It doesn’t matter, you’ll experience an impressive productivity boost either way. Don’t just take my word for it though, study after study has proven that an additional screen helps quite a bit.

Economic Difficulties Despite Innovation?

Posted on 10 April 2014 by Andrei

As domainers, we know perhaps more than almost anyone else just how important the appearance of the Internet is to humanity. I think it’s reasonable to compare the Internet to let’s say the car in terms of impact. The car eliminated a lot of physical boundaries by allowing us to travel much faster, whereas the Internet took things to the next level by allowing us to interact with one another effortlessly.

Posted on 08 April 2014 by Andrei

At the end of the day, I think the situation is relatively straightforward. There are 4 possible new gTLD scenarios or actually just three because one of them has two ramifications:

It Takes Just as Much Effort to Close a Large Sale

Posted on 07 April 2014 by Andrei

Domainers hear this statement from successful investors time and time again, yet I don’t think most of them give it too much thought. When you hear about a blockbuster domain sale, you’re tempted to say something along the lines of “sure but the seller is a veteran, I could have never pulled it off” as if the transaction in question somehow involved magic.

Should You Buy Domains You Don’t Understand?

Posted on 06 April 2014 by Andrei

Let me just give you one quick example: I don’t “understand” NNNN dot coms. To be honest, I don’t consider them all that memorable and for the most part, am reasonably confident that a lot of people (with notable exceptions such as individuals from China) would find your domain confusing should you choose to use a NNNN dot com as your brand.

Do You Check What End Users Do After Buying From You?

Posted on 04 April 2014 by Andrei

Now sure, the “I wonder what this guy did with my domain?” temptation is definitely there but should you actually go through the trouble of checking what happened after the sale? I have mixed feelings about this because in my opinion, there are two “dimensions” we need to be aware of.

I Don’t Agree With Gary Vaynerchuk

Posted on 03 April 2014 by Andrei

First of all, I’ve always enjoyed Gary Vaynerchuk’s appearances and he’s definitely a person worth listening to. If that weren’t the case, I wouldn’t have written this post in the first place. When it comes to his DOMAINfest keynote though, I think he’s fundamentally wrong and will try to explain why.

End Users Frequently Lie

Posted on 02 April 2014 by Andrei

Now of course, I’m not generalizing but I do want to make it clear that yes, end users frequently lie. You can call it distorting the truth, you can call it something else if you consider the term “lie” too strong but I for one do not.

Domaining Is *Not* a Zero Sum Game

Posted on 01 April 2014 by Andrei

Some of you probably already know what a zero sum game is but in case you don’t, the principle is simple to understand. Let’s assume two people engage in a business transaction. A “zero sum game” situation occurs if in that transaction, for every unit (in our case money) gained by one person, the other person loses.
