A Domainer is someone who makes huge profits selling the domain names that are not in your selling portfolio…

The following is a basic beginners list for anyone who wants to become a Domainer:

1. In the beginning you want to keep it simple so register all of your names at the same registrar. Have all of your names in one place where you can keep track of them and sell them on the auction platform. Major Domains registrars have very simple platform for beginners.

2. Try to use the big registrars promo codes to register your Domain names. You can cut that standard pricing by half if you search for all the available promo codes that you can use in a brand new account.

3. A soon as the 60 days blocked transfer period is over, list your domains portfolio with the three main aftermarket sites (Godaddy, Sedo and Afternic). Nobody is going to email you about your domain names.

4. Remember that dot com domain names extension is still kings of the internet and there are plenty of new names combinations available to register. Instead of performing manual searches save time using some instant domain search tools  like the ones listed at Justgowith.com. Your can also check a value estimation of the domain names that you are about to register at valuate.com and estibot.com.

5. Try to stay away from using hyphens and check if you are about to register trademarked names at Legalforce.com.

6. Put realistic prices on your domains. Domainers know that you just registered a name for a few dollars with a promo code and you are asking for 10K for it. List them for sale for a few hundred dollars. If any of your domains sells at that price, then you know you are on the right track. If it doesn’t, then you need to rethink your process process for choosing Domain names.

7. Make sure the name you are about to register makes sense. Perform manual searches using the name you are about to register and see if you get a reasonable amount of search results.

8. In the beginning just spend a few hundred bucks on hand registered domains. This will help you get excited about domaining. Ask others on Namepros and DN forum (and other domainers forums) what they think. Most are willing to help and will give their honest opinion. Change direction if you receive poor feedback.

9. Watch the videos on DomainSherpa.com. There is so much information in these videos.

10. Become a member of Namejet.com and follow the auctions. Study which names have lots of bids and why. You can learn a lot by just watching the auctions. Once you have a feel comfortable with for the process then you can start investing more money in single domain names.

11. Visit Domaining.com daily for the latest domaining news and become a reader of DomainInvesting.com, DomainNameWire.comDomainSherpa.com, and DNjournal.com and learn the basics from Igoldrush.com. Go back through the archives at these sites for lots of great info.

12. Don’t get caught up in the new GTLDs. Just go with what works right now.

13. Don’t get discouraged in the beginning and have fun.

Internet And Bloggers Are killing Journalism.

The Internet is full of words for which it never paid.

The original conception of a Journal or a Magazine was based in a traditional principle: writing an article and getting paid for it.

Today, in the Internet Universe, a journalist writes an article and in most cases he doesn’t get paid for it.

This new rule of the game seems to be killing journalism as a profession.

Music and Arts have also been impacted for this change.

The only Art creations that still are safe are those that cannot be downloaded or copied from the Internet.

First Fact: Without words the Internet would be meaningless, so it managed to get stuffed with words and has never paid for them.

Internauts pay for products and services that they buy thru Internet, but all the contents that live there are free of charge.

The Second Fact is that journalism never managed to develop and impose a system to charge for articles published on the Internet.

This is leading to a terminal crisis for journalism, because many times journalists don’t get paid for the articles that they write and get published. Since the compensation that they get isn’t enough for them to survive, at the end of the day journalism is no longer their main source of income and they spend less time researching for the articles that they publish. This is why the quality or the published articles is lower than decades ago.

Today in the Internet Era, a typical News Website sustains its budget mostly from incomes coming from advertising, rather than the quality of the news that they publish.

In this new paradigm, Internet generates every day more money for hardware manufacturers and software developers instead of rewarding those who create contents.

Internet, because of its open and public condition, offers unlimited opportunities to anyone who wants to have its own news website and wants to publish contents.

This leads to a continuous degradation of journalism on the Internet: If you don’t get rewarded for the articles that you publish, you can´t invest to keep the best writers in your staff.

Bloggers are more than happy with this situation, because with the degradation of the contents quality in the News Websites, they are starting to see an increase of the visits that they get in their blogs.

However this is temporary, their visitors will leave very soon if your blog contents don’t get refreshed and improved.

There’s also a strong competition coming from social networks, a place where nobody needs to legitimate what gets posted.

We live in an absolute democracy of the instantaneous contents. Literally a chaos.

The practice of stealing copyrighted material and “copy/pasting” someone else’s stuff is widely accepted and “legitimated”.

All this is killing journalism, because internauts think that they know about everything and what they don’t know can be searched and considered valid information.

It is time for the Internet to find creative ways to compensate journalism for its efforts or the quality and accuracy of information will continue to deteriorate.
