Are You Spending More or Less on Domain Names?
In light of the downturn in the US economy and the potential Snowe legislation on the horizon, I am wondering if you are spending more or less on domain names that you have in the past. Results of recent domain auctions would indicate that people may be spending less on domain names at this moment, but I am wondering whether it’s a sign of the times or if the auction market has become saturated, and sales only appear to be down when they really aren’t.
Over the last few months, I think I have been investing about the same on domain names than I did in the past. I have been focusing less on the second tier names and more on the top quality domain names for development. Instead of buying 10 or so average to good domain names per month, I have been buying 3-5 better domain names for somewhere around the same price. I don’t know if this is a reflection of economic conditions or fear of the potentially damaging legislation, but I have been buying less names, although the amount I have been spending is around the same.
I am always buying high quality domain names that I can develop. Well, on second thought, I’ve always bought high quality domain names that could be developed, but more often than not, developing them became difficult. Now that I am learning how to use Dreamweaver and have a couple of great developers sharing advice, I am more inclined to develop domain names on my own. I am cautious about my investments though, so instead of going all out on domain names, I have begun to investigate ways to diversify my assets. I love domain names, but it isn’t smart to put all eggs in one basket.
So… my friends, are you spending more or less on domain names right now, and what is the reason for it?
