It’s great to see marriage equality at last recognised and accepted by a big majority of Australians. Now it’s up to the pollies to get it done.

From the perspective of a domain investor, I acquired two brilliant domain names a while back – GayWeddings.com.au and RainbowWedding.com.au. To me, it was only going to be a matter of time before gay marriage was legalised in Australia – so the investment wasn’t really that much of a punt.

And guess which two domains have received a few 4 figure offers in the past 48 hours! (To the person that offered us $50 for gayweddings.com.au, we’re still thinking about it – NOT!).

However, these are two domains that could well be worth developing (even though that is not our normal business model). I just think there is just such huge potential.  Looking overseas, GayWeddings.com shows how it can be done.

In the meantime, we just have our “parking page” up – got some nice clicks in recent times too!

    Very interesting Ned, like GayWeddings.com particularly, when did you register them? (or were they drops?)

    Nice foresight Ned.

    What other hot terms are on your hotlist?       EV?    Solar?   Health?   Welfare?

    RealEstate?  Loans?  Bankruptcy?     (not in that order of course 😉

    Sportsbetting?  Drugs?  Porn?

    Not at all mate, just trying to pick your brain.

    You’ve been bang on about a few things (like acronyms!)

      Alright you sweet talker you – you’re forgiven. 😉

      I’ve been a big investor in real estate domains, but to date, they have been my most disappointing ROI. But I’m hopeful that is going to change – just need to implement a decent marketing strategy.

      Acronyms will never go out of fashion. They are definitely biggest seller by far.

      Adult domains in com.au haven’t worked for me or anyone I know.

      Loans, legal, insurance; occupation and service domains are always good sellers (add geo locations on to those terms as well). e.g. This week we sold a batch of geographic “removalist” domains. Couple of weeks ago we had a decent sale on budgetmovers.com.au

      One word generics and brandables seem to do ok as well.

    They’re great domains Ned! 😀

    Cam’s question about your favoured topics/terms for investment could make for a good article. E.g. your ‘top ten areas for domain investment’.

      Thanks Luke. 🙂

      With regards an article, you’re right. It would be good to do a “survey article” to get other opinions as well.
