Adam Strong is one of the domain investors I heard about very early into my journey in domain name investing. If you haven’t heard of Adam, don’t feel bad, he’s a very humble guy and therefore not someone you see soaking up much of the limelight. That being said, Adam’s an incredibly sharp and savvy domain investor and he’s logged some monster domain sales and owns a stellar portfolio.
While I knew Adam was amazing at flipping domain names, I didn’t know that he actually flipped something else, before domains, that you just have to read to believe. Here’s the newspaper clipping:
Yes, you read that right, Adam flipped a used film processor that he bought for $85 and sold just three days later for $12,550. I learned about this from Adam who shared it in this tweet.
As you can tell from the photo, this was a giant piece of machinery which IMO makes it an even more interesting flip since the buyer had to pick it up. I wish I could share some cool story of flipping something before domains but I think that’s hard to top!
Oh and for those who don’t know, along with buying and selling domains Adam also runs one of my all-time favorite sites NameBio.com, if you don’t use NameBio, you should. And no, NameBio isn’t a sponsor and also Adam has no idea I’m writing this post, I just like to give credit where credit is due.
Thanks to Adam for sharing his first flip and pretty cool to see the newspaper clipping – TIL!
