To start I’d like to say Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. We should be the ones giving thanks for having been given the gift of being a Father but we’ll still take the presents.
In the last week I have read a domain investor that said their goal is to get up to 1000 domains. In the same week I talked to someone that wanted to try and get their portfolio down to 50 great names. Two completely different strategies to making money in domains but both seem to think its the best way for them. As for the first, I don’t see how having a number of domains is a goal. There needs to be an adjective that describes the 1000 domains. I can get 1000 domains in my portfolio by next Friday. But they are going to suck. It’s going to take me 50K plus to get 1000 of any quality and 5 times that to have some good names. Having 1000 good domains is a goal. Not just 1000 domains.
As for narrowing it down to 50. It would be nice to have 50 top tier names. But it also sounds boring. I won’t lie. My favorite part of this investment is the hunt. It’s what kills me and drives me. I guess if I was hunting for the next six figure domain then it would be its own fun and provide the same drive. I guess as I think about it that doesn’t sound so boring. You just have to sell one or two a year to cash flow the next purchase and if they are great names, that could happen. But you could have a dry year and sell nothing. Now we’re back to boring.
