Here are the three in my portfolio that I like the most.
Causal acquaintances often ask me what my “best” domain is. It’s a tough question. I’m sure if you looked at my portfolio you’d come up with different domains than I would. That said, here are the three from my portfolio that I’d probably ask the most money to part with.
ExecutivePay.com/net/org – mainstream talk about executive pay peaked in the years after the economic meltdown. But executive pay has always been a major area of human resources consulting. There are also publications, such as Wall Street Journal, that have entire sections devoted to the topic of executive pay. I think this domain would be great for a consulting company or a publication.
AuctionBlock.com – I love this domain. It’s such a common business term — a very common term of an entire business category — and there are hundreds of potential buyers. It would be great for an online auction service, an auction house directory, a real estate auction business, or even a business or private equity publication.
iInk.com – You may be perplexed by my choice of this four letter domain as a top domain. I like this domain because of the rapid move to eBooks and electronic media, tablets, etc. The only thing I don’t like is the double i at the beginning. I may be irrational, but this is one I wouldn’t let go cheap.
I’m going to cheat a little bit since this is my blog, and list a couple others I like. One is Lakeway.com, which I created a directory site for. Lakeway is a booming suburb of Austin on Lake Travis. There’s a new $250 million hospital and literally thousands of high end homes being built in the coming years. A lot of people moving to Austin or within Austin target this community specifically; it would be a smart buy for a builder. I also like my PatentTroll.com and PatentTrolls.com domain names. The commercial use is somewhat of a stretch (maybe an IP defense law firm?), but given all the talk of patent trolls in the media these are on my “favorites” list.
So, what are your three favorite domains in your portfolio?
