What is Pickydomains.com?
On the surface this seems like it would be great way for a creative person to earn a little extra money while working at home. The company wants creative names that it can use for domain names and they’re willing to pay you to come up with them. It’s different and has the potential to be lots of fun.
In addition to domain names, the company is also looking for slogans.
The great thing about this company is that you really don’t have anything to lose. It will only take you a few minutes to get registered and the company doesn’t ask you to pay them anything. This is always a good thing. Lately it seems like I’m running into lots of companies who want people to pay a fee just for the privilege of working for them.
I was really impressed with the earning potential of this site. If one of the names I created was selected (I’ve no idea who shopping for these names) I earn 40-60% which can amount to about $30. Everyone who works at home knows that’s a lot of money for very little work. The company pays via PayPal.
The company promised that they always have some work available.
The good news is that I’ve spoken to some writers who’ve used the site and although they haven’t gotten rich, they’ve had some of their names purchased and the company was very good about payments.
I’ve only just signed up for Pickdomains.com but I do have a few worries. The biggest comes from the fact that I’ve talked to a few people who have had all of the names they submitted get rejected. This wouldn’t bother me too much, it happens, but the same people said that they also submitted a huge number of names and never heard anything back from the website. What this tells me is that I should proceed with caution and only submit a few names at a time.
Final Thoughts on Pickydomains
I think this looks like a great place to submit some work whenever I feel a little brain dead or need a temporary change of pace, but I’m not going to go out of my way to do lots of work for them. It is a legit website and I think it has the potential to be fun.
