Okay, show of hands, who is still using Excel to manage their domain portfolio?

Domain Investing Spreadsheet

For close to a decade I managed my domain portfolio in Excel. It actually wasn’t half bad but over time I found some serious drawbacks, the main one being I had to manually enter data in it every time something changed. Another offer on a name, go to the spreadsheet, renewed for another year, back to the spreadsheet.

A few years ago I discovered Efty and that very quickly replaced my spreadsheet and gave me back a lot of time. Now Efty keeps track of my inquiries and domain renewals. Oh, and they serve all the landing pages for my domains.

Yes, Efty is a sponsor of this blog and Doron (founder of Efty) is a good friend, he has no idea I’m writing this article but tonight I was thinking about how much time I’ve saved using Efty, feeling damn appreciative, and felt like it was worth reflecting on my spreadsheet days.

So if you’re still using a spreadsheet, raise you hand, it’s okay to do it, but know that there are solution out there that can save you a lot of time. Just saying…

    “Yes, Efty is a sponsor of this blog ”

    Just for transparency , how much $$$$$$$?

    It is about time the sponsors reveal the $$$$ pay to the bloggers .
    In my blog, I tell my readers that my sponsors(big high tech) pay me $250K to test their products.

    Your other logo was excellent. The new logo, what does convey or signify?
    I personally, believe logos are meant to stay in people’s retina and mind.
    A good logo should last for many years.
    Ford, General Electric, Quaker Oats and many others are good example of it.
    Anyhow, you’re the boss and not necessarily have to agree with my point of view.
