    Welcome investor88. :)

    I know that you have spent a long time in the real estate world, so I'm sure you'll find "cyber property" an exciting proposition. The principles are basically the same, except there is a lot less red tape involved with buying, developing and selling domain names compared to a bricks and mortar property development.

    And the ROI is significantly better - and the risk far less!

    Good luck.

    Cheers, Ned

    domains with trademarks

    Thanks Ned

    i look forward to seeing the hot tips on how to get the best ROI in domains. When domains have a registered trademark in the same country as the domain will that increase the value.

    Domains with registered trademarks

    yes i have the trademarks for AU, NZ and UK with the matching domains names.

    The trademarks also have a registered slogan

    Creating wealth through knowledge and strategies

    I believe that this adds value to to the domains is that correct.?

    Hi Investor88

    I have a trademark on a name i used to own, the idea was shopping based and by the time i got around to trying a site the industry was full of 'shopping sites' i guess gumtree would be the closest to what i had in mind

    Long story short a trademark will help protect your branding but the business will still have to 'stand alone'

    I guess it adds to the overall value of a name but it is really only a bonus in my eyes

    Welcome to the forum
