Prosper with Virtual Real Estate and Digital Assets

By Kamau Austin, Stay-at-Home Dad and Searchpreneur

A growing but underground movement is quickly gaining steam online. Others outside the Internet world may be taken off guard by this expanding industry.

Since the dot.com boom and later bust many people outside the Internet marketing world haven't taken the net as a realistic path to riches. Almost a billion people around the world use the net as an information gathering, ecommerce, or more recently social networking resource.

In stark contrast many people are into real estate as their first asset of choice. They would probably scoff at the notion of net based assets being compared to something as valuable as real estate.

Can you image trying to convince Donald Trump that internet based virtual real estate may for some people be as valuable as traditional real estate? But just look at the billions Google, Amazon, eBay, and Yahoo! are generating with their digital assets and even the Donald may have to take another look this booming industry.

For many other people as well wealth with digital online assets may be true in the near future with some savvy planning. In the next 2 weeks I will reflect on how digital assets can begin to build a virtual real estate empire for you in some create ways. In our next blog we will introduce the concept of what is a digital asset and virtual real estate.
