Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday July 30th , 2018

Jul 30 2018

Back in the swing of things today.  And the list is back to full strength.  I took some people to the Cubs Cardinals game this weekend and I am not quite sure how the average American can afford to go to a pro baseball game.I used to go to 30 or 40 games a season but it wasn’t anywhere near the cost it is today.   But that was 30 years ago when the Bleacher Seats were cheap.  I was in St. Louis and had private club tickets which were a few hundred dollars each.  Had to pay gas to drive 3 hours to the game. Parking was $30.  A beer was $10 to $15 a glass depending on what you got.   Brats and Italians were $10. Peanuts $5.  For a group of 4 that was having lunch at the stadium and a few beers it really adds up.  Don’t get me wrong, I had a great time and to be able to get out and enjoy a relaxing day at the park is fantastic, but I’m just not used to seeing those kind of prices outside of DisneyWorld.  I actually think this cost more than Disney.  It ran $800 for the afternoon for me to take 4 people.  Again, well worth it to me, and I am fortunate enough to be able to spend that kind of money in a few hours,  I just don’t think most of America can.  I’m sure there are cheaper tickets, and you don’t have to park close or buy and food or drinks, but the having a game dog and a beer is a big part of the day at the park.    It also explains why everyone at the stadium looked exactly the same.  Because they were the ones that can afford to go.

I’m sure I’ll get blasted for being the rich guy that complains about prices but regardless of how much money I have I always analyze cost vs value.  Places like Disney are easy to justify.  Its a once or twice in a lifetime experience and cost is thrown out the window.  It costs a ton of money to keep Disney as clean and perfect as it is.  Big city bars have to pay for big city real estate costs so you trade high priced alcohol for location and crowd.  I imagine pro sports fits in that same category.  Its an experience you can’t get anywhere else.  The talent on the field is expensive.  The stadium is top of the line and cost hundreds of millions.  I’m also sure that all of the above has been analyzed over and over again and prices are set at perfect levels to maximize profits. In short, they’ve done their homework.  Because if people weren’t willing to pay those prices then they wouldn’t charge so much.

Lets swing this back to domains.  The cost of marketing products is expensive.  If you’re going to charge high dollars for your products you are going to have to spend on marketing.  A national TV ad in prime time STARTS at $200K by the time you throw in cost of production and ad time.  That’s for one commercial.   It’s just so easy to justify six figures for a name that is going to increase your new customer take in.  You put all that money in so its important to have something memorable for them to go to.  If you have an understanding of what your domain could possibly save or make for a company then its easy to ask a high price.  I don’t have a large number of names that would enable a company to earn hundreds of thousands or millions more. But I have a few.    Thinking that all my names provide great value to companies would be naive.  But all provide some value so I price them accordingly.  I am still not very good at getting the most out of my prices.  But I am learning.  Right now my beers are at $6. I used to charge $4.   I’m hoping to get $10 for my beer soon  Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price

Quote of the Day: “They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” — Mexican Proverb

Domain of the Day:  

 Namejet and Sedo Names at Auction   I think this could be marketed for an injury lawyer.  Price is right   A huge worldwide market.  Not something men like to talk about but every teen girl has to buy their first bra.  That’s why it has a $2 plus CPC.  Met reserve  Solid brand for a food show or blog.  Reserve is under $1000 so I think it sells and moves to a new home   A good brand for that someone or something that is a better than most    Yup there are multiple bidders on this one.   But then again who doesn’t….nevermind  Sounds like cannabis but its actually a flowering canna.  I know.  I’m an expert    Can’t sleep?  We can help   I like the name.  Would like to have it a bit cheaper than the reserve but worth taking a look   Great name for a trade mag for the construction industry   Most bids on the board in the BIG Dot Co auction    Gets 1500 monthly visits.  A lot of uses for this one  This one is sneaking buy everyone.  Has already met reserve and its at $355  Love this kind of

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids  Would make a great brand by itself but of course it’s not bad if you sell Blueberries     Biggest price on the board…..and climbing   Big ideas for small companies  Getting all the bids because it is a loan/accounting term  22 year old name that is exactly what you think it will be  Nice 5L getting a little love    A huge shopping center called Las Vegas Market that operates under   Plenty of more uses  We’ll see if CHiPs are down with this one.  The Q is not premium.  Going to China   No other use but for canna money  Solid blend of crypto and toll  Obviously Racetech would be a huge name but this one has some value


Godaddy Names With One or NO Bids This is going to do oh so well.  More free money for our friends at GD  One bid.  Not a bad name for $17 if you want to start and English language based Korean radio station  1999 birthday.  Free slogan “Beauty is on the inside”  You would think I would want this.  Its a solid brand I just have tons of names like this  Unless you are selling me a domain and in that case you should cave like a sinkhole If you offer a shuttle to Chicago you should want this marketing name for $12  Nice little brand for $12   Would be a good name for a legal zoom type site for estate planning Can’t think of a better name for a realistic lifestyle brand Financial bank, fintech bank.  No bids at $12  One of the very few hyphen domains you will ever see me mention on the list.   Worth looking at IMO If you’ve ever been to the airport. Cell Parking is the lot where you wait for the person you are picking up to call you that they are at the gate. No bids I liked it at $12 but someone else does too.  Deciding if I like it at $17 proof of authority and blockchain.  Nice combo name

6N Dot Com

It looks like quite a few people have let their 6Ns drop.  I put them all on Godaddy’s auction platform and got $20 to $100 for them.  Which is certainly more than letting them drop. Here is a group that’s all gotten bids

    Already at 36k.
    What jackass let that domain expire ?!
    Yep, easy free money for GD.
    Though I think 36k is a bit on the high side, even though EstiBot is 93k.
    3k-5k domain in my opinion.
    What would be the valuable build out for ?
    Dictionary word, yes. High revenue build out, NO.

    I guess they are collecting domain for dictionary word portfolio..It could be worthy in future.
