So we got a glimpse into the portfolio of Mike Mann when he sought out investors in his company. He sent out a deck to people for them to take a look. I won’t say the actual details, you’ll have to ask for the deck yourself, but I can say one stat. .2 % sell through rate. Yes Point Two. By the time you add in renewal costs, and any commissions that may had to be paid if the names were sold through a third party, and you have a cash flow negative aka losing money portfolio. And at scale. If you invest in something, anything, you invest because of three reasons.
- Its profitable and you want to be a part
- It could become profitable if it were scaled
- Something could be fixed to make it profitable
None of these appear to be the case to me. I would love to hear from anyone that saw the deck to give me their opinions. To me there were some star assets by the dozens and some pretty bad ones by the millions. The good news is based on stats, most of us have as good of a portfolio as the Real Domain King 🙂
Domain of the Day: BetterRecipes.com The name alone would be worth a grand or so but add in the head start given with the history and you can see why the price is where its at.
