I got a really nice email from Giuseppe, one of the foremost experts on liquid domains (GGRG.com), he had read my posts about investing in numeric domains and wanted to know why I wasn’t looking at non-numerics, i.e. liquid domains with letters. I didn’t have a good answer for him.
As I’ve been learning more about the liquid domain market it seemed to me that numeric domains had a more immediate/direct liquidity vs. domains with letters that likely have the biggest opportunity with an end-user sale.
So I asked Giuseppe if he would be open to doing an interview on my blog and he’s game. I already sent over a list of questions but as usual I want to let chime in and add your own questions to the list.
As I’ve said in previous posts, numeric domains aren’t something I have much experience with, and I understand the market has changed quite a bit in the last year. This is why I’ve said many time that advice has an expiration date, and with something like domain names, that expiration date can be even a month after you get the advice.
My assumptions that the liquid numeric domain market is thriving based on high sales activity of 5N .COMs might be taking a relatively myopic view and using too few data points to make generalizations about an entire market.
This is one thing, BTW that I love about blogs – whether you’re writing the posts or reading them, blogs allow us to share what we’re doing, get feedback, and learn from each other. While there has been quite a bit of discussion lately about negativity in the domain name world, from where I’m sitting, I actually see a lot of really positive, bright, and helpful people going out of their way to help each other.
One of the things I’ve always really appreciated about Domaining is that it is constantly changing, and with that change comes new opportunities. I’m really looking forward to picking Giuseppe’s brain about liquid domains and sharing how my own investment thesis continues to change over time.
If you have a burning questions for Giuseppe, feel free to comment below and I’ll add it to the list.
