We recently reached out to Elliot Silver of www.elliotsblog.com regarding his strategy behind which websites to develop and which ones to add to his portfolio. He had some great advice to share.

When I purchase a domain name in the aftermarket, it’s because I can imagine it as a fully functioning website. I don’t buy brandable domain names that could be used by someone, but I prefer names that are intuitive and don’t require any explanation (for example a dog walker directory on DogWalker.com. As an individual domain investor, I don’t have the time to build each domain name I buy, as a majority of my business comes from re-selling domain names for revenue.
