I believe that every domain portfolio should be well diverse but should contain only a handful of extensions. It is very important to pick some extensions and stick with them. Everyone should focus on .com along with a few others. Personally, I have only about 120 domains and they are broken down into .CO, .COM, and .TV.
Just about everyone in the world knows “tv” – they might not know the domain extension, but they sure do know that tv stands for television. I have been buying and selling TV domains for only about a year, but have picked up a handful of decent TV domains that have been getting consistent traffic while parked on sedo. NamePros has a section dedicated to TV domains which has become a very useful tool for not only researching this extension but also buying TV domains. I have about 30 domains and 80% have been purchased from namepros. The others have been purchased from end users or hand registered. There are many gems that can be found on namepros – im not talking about goldmines, but it is extremely easy for someone to find a domain auction, win a CHEAP domain and immediately flip it – if it doesnt suit you. I have flipped a very low $xx purchase into a mid $xxx purchase in about 2 weeks.
I feel that 2011 will be a good year for .TV domains and will lead to some $xx,xxx sales – especially if you have a domain that flows extremely well with a TV extension – for example, ANY movie genre – horror, drama, comedy – and domains with the word “show” – for example, I recently sold BridalShow[.]tv after owning it for about a month.
I have a few TV Domains that are developed, or in the process of being developed. Some of my developed TV Domains are:
- Built – which features workout and fitness videos
- Vegas Show – still needs to be updated
- Catfights – Just added this domain – am working on developing it.
One thing in common is that ALL these domains have videos – which is something every developed TV domain needs! I am using free wordpress themes on all of theses and have automatic videos added. I am also noticing that most of these TV sites get type in traffic and are indexed in google.
The TV domains that are getting the most traffic are the ones I hang registered for $10 at name. To date, all of these domains have already paid for themselves and some have been making a few bucks each month – but they are getting traffic which is always a plus! and a good way to possibly start a sale. Here are my best performing TV domains:
So if you are looking to start investing in a new domain extension, I suggest you start adding some TV domains to your portfolio.
