Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday December 28th, 2018

If you ever want to see a bad example of how not to sell domains you need to go to  I do a lot of talking about the importance of landing pages and how to make it as easy as possible to sell names, but sometimes its easier to just show you what not to do.   Many of the domains this person has for sale are directed to this site.  And when you get there it looks like 2007 threw up all over the place and left it .  The lead in, the text above the fold,  does the opposite of tell you why a domain is of value. It’s condescending and treats the user like a 5 year old.  Playing hard ball is fine but being an ass doesn’t work unless you have 6 figure names and judging by the list of names we’re not in the ballpark, the stadium, or even the same city as a six figure name.  But there are some names that should sell.  He is just not helping himself by not making it a clean, easy to use sales page.

Let now try and put in an offer on the page.  Can’t.  There is an email address only.  There are 4235 plugins for a contact box that lets them put in an offer but you’re not going to find one here.  If they really want it they will email right? Its been proven that the more steps you make to get a sale or offer the less chance you have of making or getting one. Think that people won’t spend $2500 on an impulse buy?  Check out the names you’ve sold for $2500 and you’ll see a good percentage of them never became anything  Another problem I find with the list is I don’t find any of the names listed on Afternic.   I feel that names under $10K should be listed on Afternic because they are seen by every Godaddy user that types in similar words into the search column.  Even with the commission it leads to more sales than you would have without.  It’s not being utilized with this group of names.

So in my opinion, this is a perfect example of what you don’t want to do with your names.  More time needs to be put into sales.  The names are not of quality enough to sell themselves so effort needs to be made.  We all get caught in ruts, miss some opportunity, but you can’t set your names in the trash behind the trailer and hope that someone is going to come make an offer. Here are today’s names.  Click through to see the current price and to fund this daily list

Domain of the Day:      Private parking locations and app are the latest disruption.  I use them every time I park my car and its more than $5

Namejet, Sedo, and other Names Up for Auction   406,000 results for this one.  Athletic Association  Arbitration Association….and more  Today’s   Wouldn’t be a good Namejet list without one  The price suggest people are calling this a pronounceable  Same here.   “MUCKY”  would be how I would pronounce it   Such a hot place in NY that even the .net is worth thousands   “Cain”  For you new line of cocaine inspired products    And it really doesn’t matter what product you’re going to make the finest    Listed this one earlier.  Like it as a payroll service or peer to peer payments    This one is suffering from Namejet’s lack of Camel Casing

Godaddy Domains With Multiple Bids   Will set a new comp for the AABB pattern.  Although V would be at the low side  I giggle knowing its wrong  Finding heating and air, plumbers and electricians are the big three of needing recommendations  I absolutely could eat pie every single day.  Just not sure I have the extra miles in me needed to even out the calorie intake  Borrow from your neighbor  I used to pick this type for $12 all day.  I bought looku, hooku, lootu, and other similar names.  Sold most of them  Quoraish name  Would want eventually as well.  But this is the better of the two IMO  I think these Western premium LLLL have been a good value right now.  L for league   We are in peak time for fitness.  Could be adult as in Fitn this in your ….  Age and history are giving this price a big boost   The “sy” naming convention seems to be holding strong.  At least at auction  Last name so is and will continue to be a brand.  People will want to put Mc in front  I like the plural better with the .org



Godaddy Domains With One or No Bids  A lot of V Millers in the world.  Von, Vance, Vic  Wide range of uses.  Anything tech or science Raise money in real time  Exudes the best and the latest healthcare  Gambling names are going to skyrocket as sports betting is made legal nationwide  Good name for a restaurant. No bids at $12 Ironically your startup would help others start up  Monthly pass for for charging your EV  Not a ton of value but short, easy to spell, and has bet in it    Look at Namebio and I think you’ll find enough health sales at auction to think about putting $12 in this one.  Not a recommendation just an opinion.  Please don’t buy on my opinion or you could lose all your money and have to work for minimum wage dry cleaning a Muhammed Ali robe on his wall.

  1. You mean writing “only stupid suckers buy domains other than dot com” on a website does not help your sales? What a lovely way to attract customers.

  2. It looks like this poor guy was using Dreamweaver to embed a bunch of tables within each other but then accidentally deleted a closing tag and now it’s all in shambles.

  3. This guy looks to have taken a page right out of the King’s playbook:

    page 1992 (the last year I had an original thought): be as much of an a$$hole as possible, regardless of whether it’s shooting yourself in the foot.

  4. Hi Shane. Can you list your names at both Sedo and Afternic or must you choose just one?
    Wishing you a successful time in Kenya and I pledge 10% of any January sales to your fundraising (fingers crossed!).

    1. Paul,

      First of all thank you. I will be rooting for your sales more than yourself 🙂 And yes, you can list at both. Just make sure
      to keep prices the same if you put them as BIN

      1. Cheers Shane! I’ll be optimising each domain this weekend and really focusing on some sales results for us both this coming month.
        Best regards,
