Just one last time I want to learn you one more time. Estibot and Godaddy valuation tools are guides. They are not prices. They are not price guides like Beckett’s card price magazine. They merely give you a value to start with. They are tools that have great value because they show a value based on metrics the given company shows as important. The key to all of this is to have some level of intelligence to know that the real price will NOT be this. It will usually be higher or lower depending on a multitude of factors that can’t be put into an algorithm.
I just don’t understand why all the outrage over these tools. Nothing at all effects me with these values. I don’t pay taxes on them. The price I pay or sell for is not based on these prices. Nothing at all. There is nothing simpler than ignoring something. But domain investors seem to have problems ignoring things. But ignore we can’t. Heaven forbid a person puts in a $100 bid on my $100,000 domain. My loss is wasted time reading an email. I don’t owe anyone a response but I try and let them know my price. Anything other than a counter and I move on. If they really want my domain they’ll be back. I’ve established where they can get ahold of me and that I’m selling the domain. I have no want to teach them the value of domains or tell them why its valuable. Not my job and I feel that no amount of knowledge is going to make them pay my amount. “Now that you showed me that it’s a valuable domain I’ve decided to pay the price” is an email I have never gotten. All this yet domain investors berate and tell countless stories of low bidders. How many more times can that story be told. My response is usually one word ……Namebio.com . They can take it from there .
On a personal note and to show you what writing a blog can get you. I received this comment when I talked about going to Nairobi given the recent bombings.
Sorry to say but you should cancel. You’re a prime target. Don’t think for a second these groups don’t have have intelligence ops in this day and age.
Wealthy Americans who openly blog about his income and mission trip is visiting Kenya. Nairobi or not, it’s all a drive away to pick you up. Access to capital, friends who care, government who cares. If you were in their shoes, would you not see millions for the taking
Written anonymously per usual. I’ve now been in Nairobi 3 days and leaving tomorrow and it looks like I made it through safely. There are literally tens of thousands of people here with more money and value than me and if they did their intelligence ops would know that my family wouldn’t pay $45 to get me back. My insurance makes me worth more if they don’t pay. Fortunately there are lots of Americans and doctors from all over the world working together with us that know that God is good. That obstacles and fear will always be present when moving into areas of the unknown. If I stopped doing things I thought were good because of people that were bad I would never leave my home. Tomorrow we head towards a mountain town hospital where the real work begins. The last two days have been having our doctors train their doctors. I’m not a doctor but sitting through a few classes and exams I feel like I could probably use an Ultrasound machine now. Off to the list. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD continue writing each day.
