Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday September 13th , 2018

Sep 13 2018

I’m pretty sure I underprice most of my domains.  I tend to it with everything.  Even our plants at the nursery.  We get a great margin on our plants we grow but occasionally we have to buy in plants from other growers.  Those plants obviously cost more than those we created so I have to make the prices a bit higher.  And it doesn’t effect sales at all.  Which shows me I am not pricing high enough on many of the items.  Of course you want to be the best price in town and make the most money but its foolish not to maximize price.  Another example.  I wanted to take over the Mum market and we grow huge mums and had them at $5.  And we did take over.  Selling 20,000 of them when we used to sell 2,000.   But costs were adding up between labor and input so I raised to $6.  Not one person has batted an eye.  Selling just as well as ever and people tell us every day what a great price it is.  Even people saying “I just had to come in and see these great mums people are talking about”  You know its working well when the price to value is so good people come from all over. I couldn’t have gotten $7 and had the same effect with an extra 20K plus in income.

Domains are different than commodity mums but the concept is the same. You want to sell something but you want to get the most you can out of it.  And I don’t.  I am extremely happy with my profits but I know I can do better with some patience.  The reason I know is I am generally buying good names.  Good names go up in value. Always have.  If I would have kept the names I bought 8 and 9 years ago I would probably have more money than I do now.  Because many of the names I bought for $1000 are worth $30K plus each.  But I wasn’t patient and I didn’t want to wait for the money.   I wanted to keep buying and without selling I couldn’t buy.  And not buying is no fun.  I still struggle to get full value but I’m getting better.  I also am doing a better job of knowing when I am lucky to get out of a name and not push it.  On names that weren’t my best buys.   I sold a .info the other day and was ready to drop it.  Instead I have $700 in my bank account and that pays for most of my bad purchases last year because their weren’t very many.  But I still have a ton to learn.  I am much better at domain investing than I was 5 years ago.  I actually am a much better business person than I was.   And I can certainly easily tell who doesn’t have a clue what they are doing.   Throwing darts and hoping one hits.  And when they get a bullseye aka a great sale and yell out how they hit the bullseye.  I can see the 400 other darts in the drywall that they threw with the lucky one hitting the center.  I know I won’t hit the center with one dart but with experience I can throw less darts and my center is a lot bigger.  And I always keep practicing  Here are today’s names. Click through to see the current price


Quote of the Day: You might be thinking, “What if someone steals my idea? Trust me, nobody has the time to start a company with your great idea, and even if we  did, its going to be up to you to out execute your competitors  -Alex Ohanian 

 Domain of the Day:          Great name for exactly this.  To pay people with your cell phone

 Namejet and Sedo Names  This would easily have been a 5 figure name during the Chinese rush  E-sports name.  I just say that because its the hot area right now  Best name on the Sedo Crypto auction.  But I may be biased as its mine 🙂   The perfect autograph sales name   I like this one because of the real low reserve.  Worth $100 easy IMO

Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   An Indian treat.  A sweet meat, pudding like thing.   Top bid getter on the Godaddy board today  Trying to decide if all the bids are coming for the good letter or the pet friend A Paw  We all know what a sell by date is.   Of course it’s just as much used to get you to buy more as it is to help you not eat spoiled food.  Even the dot org is worth four figures IMO  Could be considered a pronounceable.  Not being priced as one  decent real estate name.  .Me not quite what it used to be but still good for branding  Casino names are starting to heat up lately  Great letters.  The o at the front will give it a discount.  I think buying any telemed or remote medicine names is a good idea.  My opinion only   I figured this would get some bids.  I thought it flowed nicely .  Groovy  All the sixes have it in the fours.   Four figures  If you believe Godaddy this one gets 93,000 visits per month    Sounds like a store in the mall


Godaddy Domains With No Bids  Not a real thing but makes a good brand IMO Plenty of places that do exactly this.  No bids  Good with only one bid  Gets a little traffic from the sports company Mizuno  Might qualify for that telemedicine thing. No bids at $12  Great sports endings………………or porn With all the new Apple phones around the used cell phone market has to be robust

    Shane, a wonderful piece of humble, objective, self reflection. The kind that often makes the difference between success and failure. An ability that is crucial for anyone starting out in any business but especially domaining. A wonderful reminder for those of us who have been around domains for a bit and a vital lesson for those that are still getting their feet wet. Thanks for sharing!

    another great post, thanks. i currently maintain a small portfolio of 100 or less domains in various verticals for future development, so i’m all about quality over quantity. my goal is to always be upgrading the best domains in each vertical using funds from inbound/passive sales. generally speaking, if a name is hand reg’d, then i’ll accept high $xxx. if a name is won via backorder/auction for $xx-xxx, then i’ll accept low-mid $xxxx. if a domain is acquired for $xxxx, then i ask for $xxxxx. if it’s acquired for $xxxxx, then i hold out for $xxxxxx (no six figure sales yet). sometimes i really like a name that i got a great deal on, but if the offer is good like stated above, i usually sell and upgrade to something better.
