Blogging is Domainers New Pastime
- 6 Comment
Thats right Blogging is one of the new favorite tools of many of the top domainers!
I decided to take Matthews previous post on Domaining being the new pastime for blogging by completely throwing things into reverse!
I started out in online business buying and selling domains, which I guess would make me a “domainer”. Luckily I started out when I was very young which also meant the internet was fairly young. And this meant there was plenty of awesome domains still available to register. But it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I really started to get into blogging!
But why the hell would I want to get into blogging? Well quite simply, I saw huge income potential in developing and then selling blogs. And im happy to report that I have been selling many predeveloped blogs for around the past 6 months.
But the question still remains, why would a domainer want to get into blogs? See domainers make money from either selling domains or putting up parking pages where you earn on type in traffic. Just take a look at WeddingShoes.com (owned by a prominent domainer) which is a great example of a parking page. A page like this makes a lot each month (im talking thousands) so why on earth would a domainer put a blog on such a great domain?
But what about those not so great domains like doshpro.com or bloglover.info. These domains aren’t anything special and wouldn’t sell for anything much above the registration price and will receive no type in traffic. Therefore, these domain would make perfect candidates for a blog. And with just a couple of hours work these domain could sell for hundreds!
And this is the exact technique many domainers are using to monetize the myriad of worthless domains in ones portfolio.
So if you have any domains just sitting around gathering dust, chuck a blog up, post some content and in a couple of months you will have a fairly valuable asset.
You can find me and my blog at Marketvice.com a blog all about marketing, blogging and of course domaining. I hope to see you there.
