How I made a 5000% return in 1 month

In January I sold an investment asset that I had bought only one month earlier – and the sale netted me just under a 5000% return on investment. The investment I made was in buying an Internet domain name. It is like virtual property investment. To help you start learning more about investing in Internet domain names I’ve interviewed my domainer mentor, Ed Keay-Smith. Listen to the interview here.

In January I sold an investment asset that I had bought only one month earlier – and the sale netted me just under a 5000% return on investment.

Now I got lucky when a motivated buyer emerged within a month of my purchase. This is uncommon.

But what is common is that level of percentage return on investment, according to my mentor in this investment type Ed Keay-Smith.

The investment I made was in buying an Internet domain name. For example: MattHern.com.au. It is like virtual property investment.

I refer to this type of investment as frontier investing as it reminds me of the days centuries ago when people rode off into the Wild West and pegged some land.

Whilst very high percentage returns are possible, of course just like any investment you need to first learn a lot so that you know how to make a good investment decision. Otherwise you are just speculating. And if you are blindly speculating you are one small step from gambling.
