Most domainers such as Joe know right off the bat that renewals are going to add up.
Am I saying we can be 100% certain Joe will fail? No, definitely not, he may very well do ok with his business model. However, the numbers donít look good at all. Just to break even, Joe would need ten $1,000 sales. In other words, heíd have to sell 1% of his inventory each year just to break even and while 1% may not seem like a lot, it would be a pretty optimistic number for a portfolio which consists exclusively of hand registered domains..
In 2015 and beyond, domainers are better off focusing on quality-based business models in my opinion. Owning 5 domains (Brianís situation) may not provide as big of an ego boost as owning 1,000 (Joeís situation) but since when is domaining supposed to provide an ego boost? Weíre all here to make money and therefore owe it to ourselves to choose whichever business model is more likely to generate high returns, never lose sight of that..
