Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday June 21st

Jun 21 2017

Escrow.com

I was one of the final two bidders in the Namejet swallow.com auction that ended 2 days ago.  I was within $100 of the final price and it got to the point to where I didn’t like the price. Or at least getting uneasy with it.  I wrote down 3 reasons why I liked the name and three concerns I had with the name.  I called the guy that always gives me the best advice Mr. Rosener.  Immediately he hit on 2 of the 3 concerns I had with the name.  One being the immediate adult connotation, second was the return based on purchase price.  He also gave me a list of 5 names that could be had for similar price.  I ended my bidding.

The first thing you would say is “Aren’t you smart enough to figure all this stuff on your own?”  The answer is yes.  But I am like many.  I need to hear someone else say it or agree with me for full confidence. Not always,  but there are times.  Even after 10 years of doing this every day I have daily doubts.  It’s why I love having a second opinion a phone call away. You do things long enough and you meet some pretty smart people along the way.   All I have to do is return the favor when the text or phone call comes my way.     I could do it without them but I have made better decisions because I called them. Here are today’s names.

    Shane,
    Regarding Swallow.com, it was very wise of you to bounce your concerns off Drew.
    When I saw the Swallow.com auction the immediate connotation was porn. And it’s not even a good porn category name at that. Not that I’ve ever watched porn 😉
    Aside from building a bad porn site, I can’t see any mainstream value given the “Adult” connotation.
    At $16,301, your concern regarding your ROI was warranted because the connotation totally kills any mainstream branding potential.
    At $16,301, the buyer had better an end-user building out a porn site because if they are a domainer they overpaid for a name that will ALWAYS and ONLY connote “Adult “.
    The $67,000 EstiBot means nothing.
    Yes, even though we can make decisions on our own, it’s alway good to have smart people to get advice from.
    Very good advice from Mr.Rosener.

    Shane,
    I have lots of respect for you, however being in this industry for more than 17 years successfully I have to totally disagree with you regarding Swallow.com.
    I was also participating in that auction but unfortunately it went over my available budget.
    The first thing that came to my mind living in the UK is the bird Swallow and aside from that Swallow is a popular Surname in the UK.
    Lots of companies specially lawfirms and apparel companies listed on Google using the name Swallow so the negative annotation that you mentioned has no base here.
    Furthermore, I think that the association to the adult industry that you also mentioned gives the domain name even more value, online adult industry is a super huge market and decent names such as this one are hard to come by these days.
    Lastly a simple check of the domain on Alexa returns a very respectable rank of just over 1 million in the US which indicates that the domain is getting good traffic.
    All the above makes the $16,000 paid for the domain a very good price for the buyer if an investor and a true bargain if an end-user.
    If the name was mine I wouldve never listed it in an auction site and wouldve just waited for an end-user to knock on my door for at least $75,000.
    Anyhow, time will prove one of us wrong.
    I would also like to thank you for you daily articles, I thoroughly enjoy reading all of them.

    Back on topic .. I often say pricing domains is the hardest thing in domaining .. but equally difficult often times is simply saying NO!

    In the end it’s all about value .. that’s why the only negative about Sherpa reviews in my mind is the fact we don’t know the purchase prices. you can have the absolute best single word domains in the world .. but unless we know the purchase price to evaluate VALUE, the domain owner could be the worst domainer in the world if he bought the best domain in the world at a really bad price.

    Often you see a domain in the expirations/auctions and fall in love .. but you really need to be disciplined enough to say NO once is gets past that value price-point!
