As you’ve probably noticed, Chinese domainers are becoming more and more active on the reseller market and in my opinion, its future will be influenced in a meaningful manner by this fact. As such, understanding how Chinese domain investors make decisions is extremely important.
In my opinion, domains that Chinese investors find attractive will do *very* well from now on.
If you think this is just a temporary situation, you are mistaken.
We’re talking about what is still the beginning of a long-term trend.
The reseller market is driven by supply and demand, I’m sure I’m not telling you something new.
As a domainer, the ability to understand for which types of domains there is likely to be increased demand in the future can make the difference between having a strategy that makes money today and tomorrow as opposed to living in a perceived reality that is no longer as relevant as it was a few years ago.
To simplify things, what I’m trying to say is that if you don’t adapt, the likelihood of making money on the reseller market diminishes considerably. Don’t live in the past.
