Two things that are contradictory but have always been a consistent measure of the domain environment are the facts that I have seen more offers on my domains than any point since I’ve been domain investing. The other is that our commissions have dropped like a rock in the last 30 days.
The commission thing could be that we are doing a bad job and nobody comes here any more. It could be nobody buys through the list. It could be that people that read this post each day are not buying right now and that all the sales are to the big guys that use their own API. I’m not sure and there’s not much I can do about it other thank keep doing what I’ve been doing for a decade. But I will say that every time the commissions drop the sales of domains have dropped. It never turned out to be just us. I won’t be able to find out for a few weeks but I will say that everyone is gearing up for a rough rough fall and maybe domain investors are holding back a bit. Again, won’t know for a while.
All that being said, I have gotten a ton of inquiries. Not great offers but offer. I have 400 domains and get one or two a day. That’s a lot for me. My LLLL.coms have been getting some action at Afternic as well. Its been a while since that has happened. None of it means anything until I sell some but you have to start with offers.
On another note, I didn’t have high hopes but talking to the football coaches here at U of I and it looks like college football is going to be canceled mid week. I knew it was a long shot but was hoping they would get in a few games. But its just not safe and everyone knows it. I can’t imagine fall without college football. Its been a part of my fall my entire life. The NFL is still going but even that could be in jeopardy and regardless its not the same as college. But its just a game and not worth risking lives. They already put their bodies and the futures in jeopardy every game. No sense in making it worse.
