I could go on for days about how many trends I missed and blew huge opportunities to make big money. By the time I completely “got” generics and which domains to buy they had gotten expensive. I knew CVCV dot coms were going to have great value but didn’t buy enough and wasn’t greedy enough on sales. But 5 letter dot coms I hit. They are simple, short, and perfect for the short attention span of today’s Internet surfers. Many ask me why I preach when all it does is increase the value? It’s because I have a pretty good portfolio and two, most people still don’t know what constitutes a great 5L.com. You would think going through the monthly sales chart would help identify which 5 letters sell the best but it actually confusing because there really is no rhyme or reason why certain names sell for such high prices. As usual it comes down to how bad the buyer wants it and how motivated the seller is. Here’s a look at some of the 5 letter dot coms that have sold over the past month or so.
It’s hard to take much from the numbers other than the fact that the names(for the most part) can be pronounced easily. What always surprised me is the price people are willing to pay good money for misspelled words. But you aren’t going to get viral.com very cheap so spending $2000 on vyral.com probably not so bad.
