This morning I woke up to see that Raymond Hackney, the publisher of TLDInvestors.com and main writer for TheDomains.com had published an interview with Brad Mugford on his blog. Brad is someone I have always looked up to in the domain investing world, he’s been an investor for over 20 years and does a great job of keeping up with trends and shifts in the market.
One of the things that makes the domain investing space so unique is that there are so many successful investors that are open and transparent about what they’re doing and helping others learn. One of my core values (and a core value we have at Bold Metrics) is always learning and it’s one of the reasons why I love domain investing so much, there’s always so much to learn!
After reading Brad’s interview on TLDInvestors this morning I thought, okay – this is something that every domain investor should read, there are so many good nuggets in there it really is a must-read. Here’s one of the questions I found really interesting:
4) Have you delved into any of the country codes that have been hot since last we spoke, like .ai, .co or .io?
The only ccTLD I really invest in is .US. I own a portfolio of around 800-1000 mostly top quality keywords, brands, and GEO.
I just see the extension as undervalued in general. My inquiries and sales are solid.
I have sold terms like Tech, Cloud, and others for serious prices.
As far as secondary extensions go in general, I would only be willing to invest in the top tier terms. Basically the lower quality the extension, the higher quality the term needs to be.(Source – TLDInvestors)
I don’t want to give away anything else so you should stop reading my blog and head over to TLDInvestors.com to read this interview! Thanks to Brad for taking the time to share and to Ray for asking so many good questions, I got some really good nuggets from this interview 🙌
