Happy New Year!

Posted on 31 December 2013 by Andrei

The new year is only a little over 2 hours away over here, so I’d like to take advantage of this opportunity and wish all of you an excellent 2014!

Sharing my thoughts with you guys has been, is and always will be a privilege. About a month from now, DomainingTips will be 6 years old and words can’t begin to describe how grateful I am to be in this industry.

Thanks for putting up with me for another year, I hope you and the ones you love will have a peaceful 2014, good health and as many accomplishments as possible 🙂

Temporary vs. Permanent Domain Selling Points

Posted on 30 December 2013 by Andrei

At a certain point for example, the term “exact match” was all the rage and the exact match search volume of the term was used extremely frequently as the domain’s #1 selling point in a lot of cases. The only problem was this: all it takes is one policy change and bam, everything disappears.

That’s why today, I’d like to make an important distinction and refer to temporary as well as permanent domain selling points.

What’s Your Edge?

Posted on 29 December 2013 by Andrei

I’m confident all of my readers have an edge that can help them as domainers or investors in general, even if many of them don’t realize it yet. Your edge doesn’t necessarily have to be something like a technical background that enables you to be good at picking domains related to your niche.

In my case for example, the #1 edge I have as an investor is the fact that I’m a cheap bastard. I absolutely love saving money and hate spending just for the sake of it. I said this on DomainingTips on more than one occasion and I’m proud of it. In other words, I’m not a “consumer” who likes to constantly spend money on (sometimes useless) stuff.

10 GoDaddy Discount Codes

Posted on 28 December 2013 by Andrei

All of them bring the price down to $1.99 aside from one which brings the price down to $0.99 instead. I’m reasonably confident that two of them work internationally and as far as the other 8 are concerned, I’m not sure.

Didn’t use any of them myself, so I can’t guarantee anything.

Every Pressurized System Needs a Release Valve

Posted on 27 December 2013 by Andrei

As domainers and/or entrepreneurs, we’re often under a lot of pressure. Not necessarily due to the actual work we do but rather due to the responsibility that lies on our shoulders.

Should I accept that offer?
What should my next move be?
Did I make the right decision yesterday?

I’m *Finally* Writing a Book

Posted on 26 December 2013 by Andrei

The book won’t be about domaining or making money online although there will be a chapter or two about online assets, it will be about how to manage your wealth in a complex economic environment such as this one.

I think domainers will find it useful because after making money online either via domaining or through other methods, a lot of people are having a hard time figuring out how to diversify and invest in offline assets as well.

A Lot of Ideas Look Great on Paper

Posted on 25 December 2013 by Andrei

… but in the real world, things are unfortunately a bit more complicated.

I remember my first business idea like it was yesterday. I distinctly remember my first strategy as a domainer as well. I had it all figured out… or so it seemed 🙂

Are All Good Domain Investors Good Stock Pickers?

Posted on 23 December 2013 by Andrei

… or bond investors? Real estate investors perhaps? On the one hand, it’s easy to understand why some people think that just because they’re good at investing in certain assets (domains, in our case), it automatically means they’ll do well in the stock market as well, for example.

Unfortunately, things are a bit more complicated than that.

Arrogance or Humility?

Posted on 22 December 2013 by Andrei

As time passes and people start becoming better at the thing(s) they do for a living (domaining, running businesses or anything else), I’ve noticed that they go through one of the following types of changes: some become arrogant and start developing some kind of a sense of superiority, while some become more and more humble because they’re grateful for what they have and understand just how fortunate they are to be alive in 2013.
