Domain Name Investing
Hey everybody, David Scarpitta with Get Found Marketing and today I want to come at you guys about something really important I’ve talked about before, but maybe I didn’t drill it into your head enough so I want to come back one more time with it. And today we’re talking about the power of domains.
Power of domains. How powerful are they? How are they going to attribute to your business and to your brand? Now, as you know, you’re watching this because you are interested in digital marketing and growing your business online, but I don’t know if you guys know this or not, but domaining the actual term domaining is an actual business in itself. So there’s actually people, that I’ve purchased domains from. That also have purchased domains for me.
Domain itself is actually a business within digital marketing. So it’s kind of like virtual real estate development, if you will. So if you have a good domain name or short and sweet, catchy, uh, obviously now there’s a lot of, and I’ve gone this over in other videos, so if you want to check out the videos below, you can learn more about, you know, we have the normal .Coms. Net. .Org. But now we have CO. .IO
.IO means in out was just the write protocol, getting really nerd, but just the write protocol for information transfer. We have .Guru. .Club. I mean the Dots go on and on, like literally tons of times. It’s crazy.
But the question is, are they really all worth something?
Are they worth investing in? Well, you have to really think to yourself, and there’s a formula really that you have to understand that whether or not it’s going to be valuable in the future. And even though the domain name business was years ago, a lot bigger. So you can buy, let’s say a domain is people who, so domains for, you know, half a million dollars, $2,000,000, $3,000,000, $4,000,000, very large tickets. Does that still exist? Well, yes and no.
Domaining as a business, is still available to people, but they have to be more realistic those days of like, you know, three or $4,000,000 means may not quite exist anymore, but it doesn’t mean that there’s still not value in having a great domain portfolio.
I’m really again, for branding, for, you know, just for ease of use, people typing it in, and even of course for virtual real estate development. OK? And I talk about that in my other videos below. So do me a favor and just click below and also listen, do me a real quick favor, subscribe, because you’re going to get a lot of awesome stuff coming down the pipe that teaches you how to leverage the Internet while you sleep to make money. OK, so the question is, is that, you know, domains and basically virtual real estate are one in the same.
There’s a lot of things you could do with domains. You could sell domains, you can sit on development, develop domains. You can even rent out domains. I know it sounds crazy, right? There’s ways to, to actually captured domains that weren’t available before, they were registered by other people or other companies or domains that drop domains that had been canceled.
There’s all types of cool stuff. So the question is, is that is domains still a good, you know, virtual real estate opportunity? Yes, absolutely. Especially given the fact now that if you think about stuff you can buy something, you know and resell it and make an x amount of money. Just like a house or if you’re playing monopoly and you keep on developing on your own boardwalk, you’re going to make a lot more money when somebody lands there. And there’s a lot of creative ways to do this.
So, again, if you guys haven’t already subscribed, do me a favor, subscribe. I’ll send you guys something in an email that’ll tell you, give you more insight and basically a white paper on how to develop a, you know, a nice portfolio of domains for virtual real estate. Because really, at this point, in the game, you know, real estate’s really expensive, regular real estate, virtual real estate.
It can be worth thousands if not millions, depending on the right time of dollars as you know overnight. So virtual real estate, really important. Lots of awesome stuff to do with it. And yes, it’s still a powerful tool. Hey, listen, also, one more thing I forgot to tell you. If you happen to be watching this and you want to test some domains, just going to GetFoundMarketing.org.

BONUS: Hey, if you guys want to take a quick look at domain sales from 2017 around the same time of year when this post was made, take a look at some ridiculous domains that I wouldn’t personally think would garner more than a registration fee:
If that doesn’t make you think twice about spending some cash on investing in domains for the price of 2 lattes, then I don’t know what will.
