    Hi,

    My name is Chris. I'm 25 and from Bris Vegas.

    I have been making a living online for the last 5 years. Mostly from advertising sales. I know a bit about most aspects of making money from websites everything from SEO to PPC to CRO etc. Jack of all trades I guess.

    Though I must admit I was late to the domaining game, I got into buying Australian domains (and developing them) recently after doing some consulting work for a family member (I don't consult normally - hate it) which focussed on development and lead generation and found that there was quite a bit of low hanging fruit to be picked in the Australian market.

    So I recently dropped a bit of money into buying some Australian domains that I thought were worth developing.

    Now I'm largely in the process of trying to development. It's slow going than I would have liked.

    :rolleyes:

    Other than that, I keep an eye on drop.com.au - I have picked up a couple - but most of the time I can't justify the prices which they end up going for, but I don't mind seeing the silver lining in that I'm already sitting on quite a few domains myself. So it's reassuring to see that I'm not the only person who thinks they are worth something.

    :)

    Anyway I look forward to chatting with you all. I joined basically because old mate Ed at Oz Domainer wasn't posting frequently enough for me to get my fix of domaining gossip.

    :p

    I piss and moan enough as is.

    Plus I know how hard it is keep blogging when you have loads of different projects on the run. So I can't be too hypocritical.

    Welcome to the forums, Chris!

    I won't hold it against you that you're from Brisbane, as we all know that Melbourne is the best city. ;)

    Looking forward to your posts. :)

    Regards,

    Cheyne
