Domain Spotlight:

Some great discussion on DomainSherpa today.   And of course some good laughs as well. The portfolio was pretty weak today and we were pretty tough on the portfolio owner.   We all had issues with quality and quantity when we first got in to domain investing.  Fortunately for me it wasn’t a lot of money but there were certainly bad names.  I remember vividly buying  I had envisioned a  mortgage site where lenders bid lower and lower rates based on the applicants credit score.  But that’s where I messed up.  I was dreaming about a business. Not the sale of a domain name. A domain name is more valuable when you don’t have to dream up what it would be used for.  The more valuable names can be used for anything.  Names that have the most potential buyers.  When you start saying “this could be good for this and this could be good for that” then you are reducing the value.  Drew says it best in the show.  When talking to friends and colleagues about the potential uses then its OK.  But when you have to tell the buyers then you’ve already lost.  The best sales are when buyers came to you.  And they already know why they came to you. Here are today’s names   Click for Current Price

Domains That I Like With One or No Bids 21 years old with one bid. Easy to spell and remember. A little long but for the price it’s solid IMO The street next to me. But I don’t think that gives it any value Good brand but no bidders. 12 million Google results Long name but not too bad for a dating site name. Get while you’re at it I figured this would get a few bids because its memorable and people like the word go Same thinking here but has 560,000 backlinks   Makes me think of Blue Apron.   Always money in making life easier


Other Godaddy Domains With Bids
