Sounds like a simple question right? Not exactly! In 2012 I was a domain investor who didn’t necessarily oversee all of my investments as I should have, so I had an extremely hard time answering this very question. To fix the problem I have spent the first couple of days of 2013 to really grab a hold of my portfolio.
Although I am not done with the final tally I am now at 270 domains. As most of you know I like to keep a lean portfolio. It wasn’t until the end of last year where the number of domains that I owned jumped. I know they jumped because I had a rough estimate of what I owned in 2012. I can blame the GoDaddy Groupon for that!
I am most likely a day away from answering the question above and can already see how helpful it is to have all of my domain names laid out in a spreadsheet to keep track of them. As of right now I am categorizing my names with the following fields:
Develop(Product Driven Affiliate Site)
One of my main domain investment goals for 2013 is to make sure that if I am not doing anything with a domain that it is parked somewhere. I’ll go into this later, but I don’t like leaving money on the table!
In addition to this I like being able to have my entire portfolio one click away from me. After the spreadsheet is done I plan on uploading it to my Dropbox account for safekeeping. If you are like me and weren’t able to answer the question, then take the step to start managing your portfolio like a professional. It will only help you.
