Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday March 5th, 2020

There’s been a changing of the guard in domains over the last few years. It’s not about who made the most money. It’s about those that do the best job sharing the journey……and making money. Making money is a way that relates to you. In ways you can duplicate. The reality is people want to learn how to make money. Young people don’t want to hear old people tell them they are rich if the way they became rich can’t be done today. They don’t give a shit. They want to hear the stories of the Mark Levines (@domaintheory) , Abdul Basits (@abmakrani), Morgan Lintons (@MorganDOTLinton) , (Doron Vermaats (@doronvermaat), and Jason Shepherds (@DVDJKingpin), and Alan Dunns (@AlanGDunn) of the world. Who are having success as we speak. They aren’t super rich but they share their journey in full detail. (like this one). They inspire and make you want to try harder. Fill you up with drive and hopes that you can try some of the same things and have some success. And just important, see what hasn’t worked for them and figure out if that is going to be true for you or maybe tweak it a bit and see if you can get some juice out of it.

The only thing better than a good story is a story that can make you money. There are a handful of people that do a great job doing both. The above is just a sample that had good stories the last few days. There are dozens more that I didn’t name. Not that reporters of news and stories can’t be beneficial, but you follow and read them because they find good news. You follow them because they are great at finding informative and informational stories. That has great value unto itself. Collating content is super valuable. Saves us all time. Our industry is a great one because despite its size, we have people that provide all kinds of good content. Good sites for info and great people to follow. There is as much opportunity to make money, be entertained, and learn as there has ever been in domain investing. It’s just a different generation filling the roles.

      1. Hey Travis,

        I’ve switched to NS3/4 because those are the sales lander forms whereas NS1/2 are their parking landers showing ads and I think contains small bar which says of contacting if interested in buying that domain. Won’t be testing NS1/2 because similar test I’ve done at Uniregistry by having ads for years and the removal as well. And I saw significant difference! More inquiries and sales started to happen after I started only using sales form at Uniregistry compare to ads with top bar link saying the domain is for sale and click here to contact type message.

      2. Agreed – I had the same experience when removing any of the parking banners no matter where I’m selling. I would say my ongoing experiment with ns3&4 at Afternic has been somewhat underwhelming. I know they repeatedly say they have tested it vs. a BIN lander, and it works best, but I still feel it is a dumb decision to not offer a largely GoDaddy branded lander with a BIN price. Leave it up to sellers to test it for themselves.

  1. Thanks for including me Shane – it’s an honor to be mentioned alongside others I have looked up to in my domaining journey. While my #1 focus lately has been personal, I am actively looking for ways to add value professionally. Until I find my “spot” in the domaining universe, maybe me sharing some of the smaller sales that I have on Twitter will encourage some newbies to stick with it.

  2. Hi Travis,

    I feel it also depends on the quality as well as QUANTITY of domains you’ve with Afternic to see clearer results. Also sometimes there are months which goes very well and sometimes almost no sales.

    Yes, GD should allow the sellers to offer BIN landers. I’ve discussed this with Afternic and they’ve said the current NS3/4 landers are working the best for their sellers. Not sure if they’ve tried BIN landers for their own domains and found the best results coming from the current landers. But still they should offer it.
