$50 Domain Challenge #1. First Pickups.

My Youtube feed kept recommending this person who was starting a retro videogame collection with only $10. I think he started in February, and even during a pandemic, he already is up to like 8 systems and 140 games or something, and a bankroll of over $300.

I got inspired, and decided to build a new domain portfolio from scratch with only $50. I’m going to post about the results here for the next year, and hopefully in autumn 2021 I’m posting about my fat cash stack and all of these names.

$50 is not a lot, so I decided to try to register 6 .com domains and then get whatever I could with the money left over in other extensions.

Pickups

Zine.Store

I’m working on a WordPress theme called “Zine Pro”, but I’ve always liked independent media distribution and small print runs. I want to see this existing.

AltQueer.com

And this may end up being the names of one of the zines that is being sold on zine.store.

NewYorkCityMom.com

Yes, I worked on mom blogs when I worked in NYC.

FlipperBlog.com

Shopping this summer has been dominated by bots and flippers.

OG.Money

Only 2 letters.

CulturalCritics.com

Who isn’t one in 2020?

CoopNY.com

When i start to think about the future of businesses, there are going to have to be more coops.

PintCast.com

I’m one of the few people who hates listening to an hour and a half podcast. Hate. A pintcast is about the right length for me.

Strategy

For now, the only thing I can think about is cash flow, because I’m out of cash. I actually spent $50.07 on the “portfolio” above.

If I can sell any of the names above, even for $20-$30, that is more names I can invest in. Even getting that small amount is not easy or guaranteed, but I think I got some usable names that should be businesses and should be making people money.

I guess the next post will be when something happens.

Stats

Domains: 8 (6 .com, 2 new g’s)
Cash: -$0.07
