October is here and I’m finally back from tour, which means that it’s time to buckle down and start selling some domains. I’ve had a few more offers roll in for some of my German names at Sedo, which is promising.
One of the things I’m doing this month is focusing on doing everything more efficiently, and getting organized. I don’t know how Elliot Silver and Morgan Linton do it, but they are supreme multitaskers, and make it look easy. I, on the other hand, am somebody who always has a half dozen things going on at once, but every once in a while, I start to panic. Last week was one of those weeks—between networking with people online, responding to inquiries on my names (some of which involved translating emails into German, which always takes me a while), and dealing with the rest of my day, I started to feel like I was losing it.
As Morgan likes to say, “work smarter, not harder.” It’s time to get organized.
Here are a few of the changes I’m making:
I’m also looking into online accounting programs like Rhino and Quickbooks. I already have a similar place to track financials for my music business, but I need to be organized in the same fashion with domains. Keeping track of expenses & sales every month makes it much easier when taxes are due.
On another note, I came across my first example of a .NET redirecting to a company’s .CO tonight while researching endusers for a domain I’m brokering. SNSCO is an asset management firm, and their original website, SNSCO.NET, is now redirecting to the .CO.
I’m sure the fact that their company name includes the letters “co” had something to do with it, and I have to say that I find the current URL more aesthetically pleasing than the .NET.
