Common question; What is going with the domain industry? Why are things so quiet?
These are questions domainers ask on a regular basis. Specifically, the past six months have quieted considerably in the domain investor marketplace.
Take for example these factors:
As a result, domain investors are struggling to find good solid opportunities. Additionally, we can look at the effect of the stock market on today’s domain investments.
In most instances, we see a direct correlation between the performance of premium domains for investors vs. the stock market.
Alternatively, when domain investments are strong, we see a weaker stock market.
Furthermore, domains as an investment vehicle tend to have a longer sales cycle for positive ROI.
From a very high-level, domain investors will continue to look for alternative investment opportunities. Case-in-point, check out DomainInvesting.com’s recent blog post asking the question: Are you spending more time on crypto-currency, and related alternative investments?
In conclusion, as domain strategies change, domain investors need to adapt accordingly and focus on the longer-term investment as true, beach-front real estate. Domain opportunities continue to dominate the market.
