Emerging Domain Name Investors

You’ve heard about domaining from a friend, or read about a high-profile sale. You’re looking for a side hustle, or maybe you’re testing the waters for a career change. You might be an experienced investor in other spheres, looking to expand your portfolio across industries. 

However, you’ve found that it’s surprisingly difficult to learn the ins and outs of domaining on your own, and you’re finding it tough to make real money in this game. You need:

  • Reliable information on how the industry actually works
  • Expert guidance on where to commit your limited investment budget
  • Connections to trustworthy experts who can help you on your journey

Thank you NamesCon for pioneering the #domainnames industry into the virtual future. I had low expectations but came away incredibly impressed. Well done all around. Somehow I feel like it made people closer and nicer even if we were further apart. Had some fun too! Onward!
