Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday April 13th

One of the hardest things I’ve found in business is duplicating success.  It’s actually true for anything in life. Once you feel what it’s like to have something great happen, you want more.  You want to get that feeling again and try and make the magic happen one more time.  In our industry you sell a domain for a good amount and you can’t wait to do it again.  Or you write one article that gets a lot of visits and/or positive feedback and all of sudden part 2 gets written.   As I get older I realize there are simply things that are special moments.   Things that can’t or won’t be replicated and you need to just enjoy what happened, take it in, and figure out what your next special moment is going to be.   I found myself spending too much time trying to do it again instead of just trying to keep moving forward.  Add in the diminishing returns and its even more reason to keep moving.  Diminishing returns meaning it takes more of something to get the same feeling.  Its why gamblers are so miserable.    As you progress you have to gamble more money to get the high you felt when you were betting less.  That sale of a domain that netted you $100 means nothing to you now and it takes a $1000 domain to move the needle. Then $5,000 and on and on.

Add it all in together we all end up chasing success.   I haven’t quite figured it out yet but I am getting closer every day to treating each success independently and trying to enjoy it a little before I try and reach a next goal.   I still get fooled into doing things twice by saying that I am doing it again because that strategy worked.  In reality it was a random combinations of events that turned it into being something great.   So now I’m going to try and enjoy that great for a few seconds.  Look back on the experience that got me to that success before I immediately start working on trying to do it again.  There’s plenty of hard work ahead

Quote Of The Day:  “Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much can be done if we are always doing   -Thomas Jefferson”  Happy Birthday Mr. Jefferson

Domain Of The Day: Bitcoin computer, company or comparables

Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids    “Your source for all your travels”  There’s your free slogan.  22 years old  21 years old.   Upgrade name for a bunch of places that share the name  21 years old.  Saw the bids, Googled it.  Had no idea so many things would use the term. I like the fly fishing use the best    Two words.  Jerky and dried fruit.  OK four words   Generic for Amazon.    19 years old.  Good marketing name    19 years old, gets a little traffic and just hit $100 at press time  I have no idea what to use it for but there are a lot of bidders and I like names that other people like. 17 years old   Two colors for one low price.   Very girly, which is nice  Only going up as the US makes sports gambling legal pretty soon Private seller. Looks like he wants a few K for it I’m a seller on CHiPs like this. Getting high money and Z is next to impossible to acronym up in English Tomorrow   The J is meh but the rest are great letters.  And the Chinese love it   The opposite side of the popularity scale  I’m assuming the bidders are playing the cyber security card   Only at $12.  I thought this would be more in the $300 to $400 range   18,000 backlinks.  11 years old.  Restart the name   Two 8s, two 5s =$200  Just love the name.  People will love saying it.  Like the Roach Coach that would come each morning to the factory    The kind of name that is getting good bids right now.  5L and brandable   Ditto    Whether you capitalize the L changes from partying to animals   Long but sounds official and   We still doing drone names?


Domains With One or No Bids Yup, still a thing. Just like City Slickers Gets some traffic and despite being a dot net its a pretty good Call to Action name. No bids Can’t call it quality without it being great……right? Everyone gets married. Sometimes twice Upgrade name for a few companies Nice short brand. The big round things you see in the fields. The call those big bales rather than the small rectangle bales Worst……sport……..ever Sounds official and also like the fake renewal emails and mail I get Sorry Al Gore, someone else is going to own this Find BIG savings on your hotel room Bitcoin startup

Other Godaddy Domains With Bids

Namejet Auction  I just love these types of names.  Always have.  Just pretty expensive right now.  Even with the soft Chinese market    Tens of thousands of political compaigns need managing   Great industry but more graduates than jobs right now     All about the private license plates in the UK.  Closes today  I have 99 of them.  Met reserve.  If you are ,you should want this  this is going to end well  this is how you say “Ask” in the city    One of the better at auction in the last few months

SEDO Names     V to the left is perfect and ends with the best ending letter IMO, C.   Good value under $350 IMO    I see Cleary but most will just see a Western and Chinese premium  The Chinese like these letter better

  1. Well said.

    Read in a book lately, people keep watching the same movies over and over because they know what’s going to happen.

    If you learn to appreciate the small, yet equally important things in life every day is an adventure
