Join us for the latest edition of the iGoldrush Report as Morgan Linton teaches you how to narrow down your domain portfolio to a manageable list of 10 domains, then select the one single domain to develop into a brand. In the next 6+ minutes, you’ll learn the basics of analyzing your domains, how to select domains for development, and how to develop these final selections into brands. After watching this video, you should have a good start on developing the domain name that you’ve selected into a fully functioning, revenue generating website brand.
In this video, we teach you how to select the right domain to develop. If you’re like most domainers, you’ve been collecting domains over the years, registering newly expired domains, buying other domains, etc. You’ve likely got a large portfolio by this point and are not sure how to get started with developing these domains into revenue-generating brands. Rather than looking for a complete solution to develop all of your names at once, Morgan’s tips will help you focus and narrow your portfolio into one domain to develop.
Once your blog is up and running, just start writing. Try to do at least 2 quality posts per week to start. See if topics are coming to mind and if you’re having fun writing about the topic. If the answer to both of those is “yes”, then you’ve selected the right name to develop!
Once you’ve got the basic site going, you may want to get a logo designed (Try 99Designs or LogoNerds). You may also want to spruce up your design with a theme. You can search the large collections of free themes online or go with a professionally designed theme from our favorite, WooThemes.
That’s it! Start simple, develop one domain and develop in a niche that you really care about. If you follow these quick tips, you can narrow down your portfolio and select a domain to develop in one afternoon!

Good solid advice, Morgan. I like the way you break it down to real simple business advice. Without the internet not many would consider jumping into a niche they didn’t know or didn’t have some passion for. As the easy monetisation of domains wains real businesses will need to be set up on each and every domain. I can’t help but agree with seal No.1 though when he says that the content should be unique and engaging. Great shout, seal No.1.
