Zelle is the Paypal/Bitcoin killer.
For the past 4 years I’ve watched as improvements have been made to the ACH payment system. Transfers from Paypal moved to 1 day in the few years, a great improvement. So one of the benefits of Paypal and Bitcoin are the fast transfer (well not so much with BTC anymore). But you knew the banks would have an answer. The answer is Zelle. I’ve used it for personal transfers where I knew the other side of a domain transaction… now I use it with my business account.
And, like Paypal at the start, there … Read the rest
Some investors apply the term GEO domains to anything with a city name in it. For me pure Geodomains are the names of states, cities and counties and places.
Here is some work we have done recently on the Pure US City Domain Names you can buy right now.
We limit this to buy it now names, make offer doesn’t really help because a buyer has no idea if the price is $1000 or $1 Million.

I keep a list, one of many, of the top 10,000 English dictionary words. I am usually using it to search some new gTLDs, or those gaining in popularity. I also use it to pair with popular suffixes like blog and forum, or brandable endings like ily, ocity and ville.
But sometimes you want to do some BIG NAME HUNTING. Everyone likes a good deal, but you can also make the most amount of money in domaining buying the best names. And let them reach their high ultimate potential. And Maybe you have to pay up.

Domain Name Investing Tips
As we begin a new year, I’d ask you what are you trying to with your portfolio? What are you intentionally trying to accomplish? If your not operating with some plan, I feel you may have an uphill climb in being successful in domain names.
Before I address diversification versus focus or theme investing; lets take a look at what happens if you don’t have a plan. My summation after being around the industry for 20 years, is that without a plan, you can end up buying higher than you should, selling low and at the … Read the rest
Your probably a better Domainer than you think. Potency in Your Portfolio.
When you search your portfolio do you find personal projects, “protective registrations” of some of your favorites in other TLD’s, and names you tell yourself you can always develop. Lastly, do you see a name and its future “if” you could build it out, and end up buying a domain name with only one buyer… you. But your a domain name investor, your told you can sell 1-2% of your portfolio. So you rationalize buying a project, and calling it a sell-able name.
When you lump these extra … Read the rest
Some After Christmas and End of the Year Domain Deals.
Your regular job office may be closed. Family out shopping. Time to buy some names.
Now my first recommendation is still invest 2 hours in understanding what you own, and what you want to own in 2020. Also bring all your names together in a spreadsheet. Makes it easier to upload to aftermarkets, search for names and know whether your sales have tilted your portfolio downwards in quality.
But everyone likes to buy.

I use in how many extensions a left of the dot string is taken to separate platinum from awesome from great from good domain names. Its not a guarantee but helps me see what domain investors are taking in every possible extension.
Here are 100 of the top words or strings. I’ve culled this list from all domains with any TLD appended available in a pending delete name, a name listed at Uniregistry or Godaddy Auctions. I’ll refine it again by year end to include other lists.
So far I’ve found almost 19,000 words or strings taken in over 100 … Read the rest

Year-end can be a great time to sell domain names. Revisit your clients in December with these thoughts in mind.
Year-end time does bring some “look back” thoughts. Picture your potential client thinking “what did I intend to do this year?”. Most of us procrastinate and don’t meet our own goals. Engage them to let them make a big move at the end of the year. Catch them trying to knock off as many to-dos as possible, including acquiring a better domain name.
December can be a slower work time, so your CEO and Decision Maker clients may have some … Read the rest
