Welcome to Domain Benefits! My name is Cara Mia and I am relatively new to the domain industry. I decided to start this blog to chronicle my experiences, both good and bad, and hopefully help a few aspiring domainers and entrepreneurs along the way.
I believe there is still money to be made in this business if you have passion, know what you’re doing and listen to good advice from the pioneers who have paved the way.
I have been buying domains since 2007 but it wasn’t until recently that I began to understand the business of domaining. Over the years I’ve acquired and held my domain names with the intention of developing most of them rather than “flipping”. You can make a decent living from flipping domains, and it’s something I might consider, however I believe a good domain is worth a great deal more once it is properly developed and has a nice amount of traffic. I also believe that there is no better investment than a domain with serious type-in traffic, but branding, S.E.O., and social media have their place and can help you when your domain is not a million dollar score.
I look forward to sharing my adventures with you and hearing your feedback. My mission is to write insightful posts pertaining to domaining and general business, make some money, and hopefully meet a few friends along the way!
