Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday January 2nd, 2020

Last year was a great year for sales totals but by far the least amount of names I’ve sold in a year. Most likely the least in my 10 plus years of domains. I still did over six figures in sales but it was just a handful of names. All that being said, I wasn’t happy with my domaining year. I priced things too high. I got caught up in the rhetoric of Rick Schwartz and Mike Mann who are positive in thought but not right for every domain. I made my way here with cash flow and smaller profits and got a little greedy in hindsite. Again, I was lucky enough to have some good sales but it was luck. Take a few out and my year would have been disappointing. It hindered my domain investing. I turned down $50K in profits. I do feel I will get all of it and more in the future but there are a few that I may have made a mistake not taking it and squeezing a little too hard.

I’m going to drop my prices back a little this year to move a few so I can get some cash flow again. We’ll see how it goes. That’s why I love domain investing, investing in general. It’s not all always constant and you have good years and bad years. I haven’t had a bad year but my boss got on me for not hitting my numbers

    1. Watch Sherpa. Read the blog. I talk about them all the time, often with prices. Just because you are anonymous and lazy means I have to list them all again? I still don’t understand why someone can’t ask a question with their real name. But just for you here are some of the names that I sold in 2019

      30 LLLL at auctions that are small from $500 to 1000 for cash flow Yup I even sold a .ws for $1000

      That’s $90K just off the top of my head. Don’t fuck with me on being open.

      1. Prove it Shane!

        I’ve wasted all my money buying hand-regged new gTLDs that no one will ever buy. I haven’t made a penny. Prove to me that domain investing isn’t a scam! Waaaaah

    2. Shane is the most transparent blogger in the domain industry. You don’t have the right to demand anything from him.

  1. Another successful year Shane and always learning – congrats. And thank you for always keeping it real, happy new year and all the best for 2020!

  2. Happy new year Shane! I too am going to reprice some and try not to be greedy this year… I feel like I also left money on the table for trying to squeeze a bit too hard on some sales this past year. We learn from both our successes and failures. Peace!

  3. That’s an awesome domain. I missed that one since I started coming here only later in the year. I guess I have to thank the anonymous troll for making you mention it? Anyway… happy new year and to many more sales and puns. I was sure you’d make a field day out of Zudick…

  4. I find that most people find the buy side tempting and spend about 90% or more picking up domains,when most of the time should be spent trying to sell them. godaddy pushes for sellers to list buy it now prices instead of a range, decent domains should sell at 3 to 5 percent they claim,but the appraisals are based on what similar domains have sold ,someone has to want them,the more end users the more likely of a sale ,but they are not looking so I am finding coldcalling does get good results. I bypass the actual person now and just tell them via vm godaddy is auctioning off their domain in dot com ,so if interested theses a reasonable offer for it and (example )will take you to an afternic/godaddy broker with a free 800 number it’s a numbers game but it works.

    1. Ben,

      Makes sense. And I 100% agree on the buy vs sell. People should be trying to sell their domains but instead they generally just wait. I like how you don’t actual do the direct sale but remind them where they could buy the domain. Good advice

  5. I forgot to add that buying good domains are pretty easy now,there is only a hand of buyers out there now ,compared to other industries,I try to stay away from good domains and go for the great ones now,I do have a couple thousand that still get bid up in expiring auctions ,but now in order for me to buy a domain I mine for or pick up in auction,I have to have panic in my body ,so even if I pick up a domain that was dropped 3 years ago and I’m wondering why this domain I sold 5 years ago for 4K has been just sitting there unregged again, frantically rushed to buy it heart beating out of my chest,these are the domains that they will come looking for oh buy the way that domain was
