I wanted to talk once again about domain name investing. I honestly think that everyone that wants to make money online should do this. Investments are cheap and easy to do. You don’t have to mess with trader fees or even learn a lot about the stock markets or whatnot. I guess it is in my nature to invest. I have been doing real estate investing for about ten years now. I talked about how four letter dot coms are great investments. LLLL.com domains haved dropped in price the past couple of months. You can find a lot of them for pretty cheap now. Investing, whatever type it may be, is only good if you have some sort of strategy. I’ve been researching the i domain market. I bought a few good i domains (idomain.com) in the last few weeks. A lot of the dot com domains starting with i or e can be found at low prices. These domains will go up in value and will be more rare as time passes. I domains are great cause it can be used as “internet.” It also helps that iphones and third party applications are called iwhatevers.
If you are just going to follow the crowd, you might miss out cause there are a lot of people who just follow the crowd. From my research, not a lot of people are taking advantage of these i domains. Remember the e domains from the first internet boom. Domains like etoy.com and eloans.com fetch a lot of money. You can really build up a strong brand with a dot com domain starting with i or e.
If you are not convinced by my words, maybe these stats will get you more interested. I’ve been looking over how much certain i and e domains have been fetching lately. Here is a list of some of the good ones.

As you can see, investing in such domains can prove to be quite profitable. We are not talking about millions of dollars, but if you buy and sell enough of these, you can make a hundred dollars a day easy. I and E domains are great for branding.
I’ve also seen some nice SEO domains that sold for hundreds of dollars. If you can hand register some good SEO related domains, you could probably flip it for over a hundred dollars easy. Don’t take my word for it tho. Research this market yourself and see with your own eyes. Making money online with domains names is still possible.
