Best Time For Fractional Domaining?
This blog has been on hiatus for awhile as I have had to come to grips with the fact that I simply cannot accomplish everything I'd like to do all by myself. My ambitions are too great and my time and resources are too short to continue to go it alone.
That realization and recent happenings have brought my attention back to the idea and potential benefits of Fractional Domaining... I'm thinking that now might be the best time for getting involved in fractional domaining that there's ever been. (I know I made a similar statement in my last post a long time ago, but I feel even stronger about it today and am personally beginning communications with other parties about creating mutally-beneficial opportunities.)
The economy is making it tough for some domain owners to sustain and develop their portfolios by themselves, and that financial pressure might just be enough to make fractional ownership deals inexpensive and attractive enough to get done -- providing the seller with an infusion of cash and a chance for more profitable development.
Finding a good partner may just make a great deal of sense -- and it could be the difference between success and profits or your survival.
Yesterday's .CO extension public launch caught my attention, interest, and participation much more than other extensions have. I believe Internet users will perceive and regard it similarly to the .COM extension once they become aware of it, making now a great opportunity to acquire generic .CO keyword domains for development and for branding -- especially for keywords where the .COM version has not yet been developed.
And, as I personally learned after checking WHOIS following my successful .CO acquisitions via pre-release ordering, now seems to be a good time to find out contact information for new .CO domain registrants (before some decide to make their information private). These new registrants may be interested in your same-keyword .COM, or you may feel they have a stronger keyword .CO that would better promote your brand. Regardless, some of these new entrants surely are looking to carve a niche and may be a good partner as either a fractional buyer or seller.
Also, right now you may be able to acquire one or more premium keyword .CO domains and feel that it is best to work with a partner who has the knowledge and financial resources to quickly and properly develop and monetize them.
Whatever you decide, it might be worth a few minutes thinking about since it could open your mind to new possibilities for you to pursue either jointly or solo.
