When it comes to incomplete projects I am the self-proclaimed king. My mind operates at lightning speed and the new ideas that flow through it are created and forgotten just as fast. Do I suffer from something abnormal? NO! This is common with domainers, some of us are focused and many of us bounce from project to project never bringing any to fruition.
Domaining is a very interesting industry. There are so many good opportunities currently on the landscape that its hard just to focus your efforts on one. The best thing to do in this situation is to recognize your weakness. I recognize mine and I continue to try and improve upon it, the only problem I have run into steam from new domain registrations. As my portfolio continues to grow by leaps and bounds so do the ideas. I’ve taken the first step and recognized the weaknesses, next is to continue to focus my efforts. So what are my main focuses at this time?
1. Continue to acquire product, insurance and medical based domain names.
2. Develop 100 mini sites within the next year. I was shooting to develop 100 mini sites within the next 5 months but with a full time job this simply is not a reasonable amount of time. I feel every site should have some sort of content on it. No sense in having a portfolio of naked domain names, unless you like that sort of thing.
3. Complete development on DataCenterDirectory.com, this is where my heart is. I am already receiving manual entries for this domain and will continue to optimize the site and add to its value with articles and marketing efforts. Right now I am in the middle of partnering with a another company to help with the development process. I am also in the middle of negotiating a few advertising campaigns for a couple of datacenters. I plan on adding a few manual entries myself in the near future and maybe crowd sourcing a few future entries as well.
I’m tired of incomplete projects and have created a small plan for myself to make sure that I have a number of complete projects by the end of this year. I’m not perfect, but I recognize my inefficiencies and am doing something about them. What about you?
