Scientific Method for Choosing IDN Domains

I'm sitting looking through an issue of
Black Enterprise

& as I flipped through the pages of the magazine I started to think about how to apply the magazine to Domaining.

1. Grab a Business magazine (My preference when I can get it is Black Enterprise because I plan to be in their one day as the next P. Diddy of Domaining - I thought I told ya that we won't stop) anyway
2. Flip the dang thang to the back... What do you see? A Cadillac ad... Even though I really want a Lexus truck rolling on dubs I'll probably keep family tradition & get a Cadillac Escalade or a Denali & be rollin on 20's in Tokyo in a few years but... My point is you see a Car...
3. Try to think of the first most obvious words associated with that ad (LEAVE OUT THE DANG BRAND NAME)... Car, Car Parts, Car Repair, Tune up, Chick named Rhonda you met while rolling up on her & here homegerl while you were rolling in a 2006 Caddy playin "Get Low, like a 18 wheeler"... Ya get the point
4. Look through the magazine & see what the other ads are.

Try to get the most obvious domains first


These are the first 25 ads I saw

1. Mercedes Truck
2. GTX Motor Oil
3. Walmart
4. Zurich (Got no freakin clue what they do but must be making money at it)
5. Hennessey
6. Chevrolet
7. Ameriprise Financial
8. State Farm Insurance
9. GE Technology
10. Lexus
11. Movado
12. Prudential
13. UPS
14. Jaguar
15. Merril Lynch
16. Martel Cognac
17. Gillette Razors
18. Verizon Broadband
19. Toyota
20. Tiffany & Co.
21. Tequila
22. DoubleTree Hotels
23. IBM
24. GMC Yukan Denali (There it is)
25. Bermuda


I don't have domains that cover this I have some of the top terms of a few of these ads.
5. Hennessey - COGNAC.com & jp in Japanese
16. Martel Cognac - COGNAC.com & jp in Japanese
21 Tequila - I own Tequila.com in Japanese (Actually I own most alcohol types in Japanese)
22. DoubleTree Hotels - Many Japanese hotel related (especially outside of Japan destinations)
Car Ads - If I didn't sell it off I still own AutoMobileHobby.com in Japanese.


Anyway even if you can't own them in one language
Try another. Then also as someone who isn't into domaining to just tell you for each ad whast would cost the most for that industry? Or What is the most obvious related words.

Then try to find those terms.

The point of this is to make some of you focus your registrations. Commercial related domains have a higher chance of making it to the aftermarket first.

Rule of thumb - Companies or industries that advertise in national magazines have advertising budgets.

Anyway good luck

Yes, but Zurich is the largest city and Financial Capital of Switzerland. There are several large firms with Zurich in the name.

But you can keep the yacht anyway! I understand they modified the helicopter pad to accomodate 'his and hers' parasailing takeoff system. lol

Re: Scientific Method for Choosing IDN Domains

Haha, I flip through business journals, flyers and pretty much any media I can get ahold of at the time... local fashion and trend magazines are great for coming up with ideas and concepts.
