Episode 68 – Morgan Linton from MorganLinton.com

morganlinton_com_retouchedOn this weeks Episode 68 of Oz Domainer, we have my good mate Morgan Linton from MorganLinton.com, DomainInvestingHandbook.com & FashionMetric.com.

I have known Morgan for about 5 years now and we both started our domain blogs around the same time.

Morgan has done some great work in that short period of time and has a great story to share. He has built a full time income from his domain name business from both the sale of domains / websites and development of his domains. Morgan has also written a brilliant book on Domain Investing called the Domain Investing Handbook where we are giving away a free copy (listen to our podcast to find out the email address to use so you can claim 10% off the purchase price with the coupon code “OzDomainer”) DIH_v3_CoverMed

If you would like to win a free copy of Morgan’s Domain Investing Handbook, then please leave a comment on this post and the one Danny & I like the most will get a free digital copy emailed to them. The close off for comments will be the end of April.

Morgan and his wife Daina, have just started their business Fashion Metric over the past 12 months which Morgan talks about in detail in the podcast. His domain business has been instrumental in allowing them to both focus on their passion which is Fashion Metric.

    Thanks for the podcast. I can definitely relate to the whole newbie thing for domaining. Fortunately for me I DID do some reading and failed cheaply and quickly. Even after some solid reading and a year later, I still dropped $400 worth of domains. (I’m glad I didn’t buy thousands of dollars worth at the start).
    Now I’m much more savvy and the learning never ends for me.
    It’s true, I haven’t made lots of money, but I enjoy the learning and I’m slowly building my portfolio and building out what I do own.

    Thanks for the show guys; really enjoyed it.

    Brilliant pod cast, thank you very much for both taking the time to discuss and share your knowledge!

    The thing that strikes me most is the shift from thoughts that domaining is something you can do on your own, set up, click go and reap the rewards to an actual business.

    How many of us could run 1 let alone 2 or more businesses in the physical world on our own?

    What is brilliant is that the online space should allow people to focus on what they really are passionate about. Morgan has a passion for the start up scene and fashion and so combines the two in FashionMetric.com. I know this will be successful because its run by a passionate business owner.

    If we can all look to our portfolios and find the name that we truly are passionate about and start to build that out slowly and as per the lean start up methodology we might all profit in many more ways than just in our bank account!

    Thanks again both for taking the time!

    Thanks John

    As I like to say “No Hocus Pocus, Just Focus”!

    I think that is the problem with most domainers, they spread themselves to thin and run around trying to develop lots of websites without making any headway.

    You are now in the running to win a copy of Domain Investing Handbook.

    Cheers

    Hi Barry

    Thanks for listening mate, I think you will get a lot from Morgans book.

    I think you are wise educating yourself first about domains rather than going like a Bull at a Gate!

    Good fortune with your future domain purchases.

    Cheers

    Ed & Danny
