By the end of 2014, I will probably end up owning about 100.
After that, we’ll see.
As far as those 100-ish new gTLDs are concerned, I’m willing to keep them renewed even in the absence of sales and even if I’ll see no sales this year, I’ll probably add to my portfolio in 2015.
It will take time until new gTLDs go mainstream and there are no guarantees that it will happen, so your strategy has to be calibrated accordingly in my opinion.
Should I however see sales this year or in 2015, my strategy will be adjusted based on the numbers.
If I’m pretty much in the “break even” area, I will add to my portfolio in a more aggressive manner than if I see no sales at all in 2014-2015 since at this stage in the game, even breaking even would prove that there’s money to be made.
If I’ll end up above the “break even” area, I’ll start being even more aggressive as a buyer and so on.
So all in all:
1) I currently own 34 new gTLD domains and plan on owning 100-ish by the end of 2014
2) I understand that it might take time until sales start happening and that there are no guarantees
3) even in the absence of sales, I’d still add to my portfolio in 2015 but wouldn’t do it all that aggressively
4) if I break even, I’ll start being more aggressive and basically the more money I make, the more active I will be as a new gTLD buyer
What about you guys?
