At DomainSherpa, there are hundreds of interviews with successful domain investors, each of whom has different strategies to learn from. I would recommend starting with the “10 best interviews” and expanding from there. If you're a podcast listener, your regular podcast is a great way to consume information about domain investments while you're driving, running, etc. At this time I had only been blogging for 18 months, but I saw a real evolution of my blog.
I started blogging about the church, about spirituality, almost as a personal blogger. When I developed my voice and started experimenting with different topics and earning money with my blogs, I made the mistake of keeping all my blogs on one domain. In 2004, I decided that I wanted to create a blog about blogs where I would share tips on how to blog and how to make money with blogging (something I had been doing for almost a year). I had previously been writing about the topic of blogs in a category of my personal blog, but I wanted to include all those posts in a specific domain for bloggers.
This is a great site that starts with the basics of what a domain is and explains how to acquire, value and sell domain names. GoDaddy also has a team of partner sellers that can help you publish and optimize your domain portfolio so that you have the best chance of sales. With the domain selling so fast, I began to wonder if maybe I hadn't priced the domain high enough. Even if you think that the domain you want includes only common words, any of them can be a registered trademark in your field of activity and the company that owns it can sue you and keep the domain.
Too often, in their rush to get a site up and running or simply out of the relief that a domain name is available, business owners make the mistake of choosing a domain name that doesn't benefit their company. There isn't a single domain investor who hasn't made mistakes or bought some faulty domains in the beginning.
