Domain investing is a tough business. Building an investment portfolio in one area takes a lot of time and money, and success is not guaranteed. Investing in a field can be a lucrative business, but the learning curve is quite steep for most people.
This morning I saw a tweet from a certain Tony that reported six figures for domain name sales:
I had my first sale on November 20th. Since then I have had a total of 71 sales totaling $ 125,572 in sales. I use the DAN lander and took a lot of offers during the quieter months, but most of my sales were on Afternic Reg Path. Distribution of the place of sale: pic.twitter.com/QclcymeXDS

I don’t know Tony, but looking through his timeline I can see that he has shared many sales as well as pictures of the sales emails he has received. Some of the domain names it has reportedly sold recently include:
I only say “apparently” because I have not independently confirmed the sales or sales figures.
From what Tony has shared, it appears he uses multiple platforms to do business including Afternic, Dan.com, Sedo, SquadHelp, and others. The bulk of Tony’s sales are done on Afternic. From what I can see, he values his names between $ 1,988 and $ 4,995. I’m not sure the size of Tony’s wallet.
If you’re looking for inspiration from Tony, here are some tips he shared on investing in domains:
The domain is 95% a numbers game. All you need to do is find a profitable angle and scale as fast as you can go through your list. Otherwise, you just throw darts at a wall and later draw the bull’s eye.
