Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Tuesday September 2nd, 2020

I wanted to start off by apologizing to the owner of It’s at auction at Namejet and there are no issues at all. Turns out the person emailing me pretending to be the owner wasn’t actually the owner. Another frontrunner trying to sell a domain he/she didn’t own. Owners can’t stop this type of thing and it hurts both them and Namejet. I made it worse with my article when I was trying to make it better. Happens to me all the time and the reason nobody likes me except my wife, Mom and 7 other people 🙂

It was another incredible month at the nursery with people still improving their landscapes and gardens at record rates. I can’t predict what next year will look like but half my customers are new and my feeling is a lot of them are going to like the results and come back. Many are buying trees and shrubs but even more are buying annuals, succulents, and mums. Things that get planted every year. And they’ll tell their friends, etc. I’m also adding a ton more greenhouse and irrigation to allow me to grow more of my own product which will help me make more money, even if its on less sales.

That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned. Building the marketplace is the most important part. Once that’s built you can improve your profits in several different ways. The key is you have the customers. For me its growing it myself. I sell approximately 3000 boxwoods at $39.95 a year. I am paying $16 plus shipping if I buy them from someone. That’s not too bad of a margin for a retail store. But I have 6000 boxwoods ready for next year that I grew from both cuttings or one gallon plants The cuttings is a time thing. I took the cuttings 6 years ago. They only cost me time. I figure I have about $4 in them when you count all the touches, pots, and dirt. Hard to measure time. In the upgrades. I bought the one gallon for $4.50 delivered and have another 4 in each for materials and planting. It takes a season and a half to get to selling size. So maybe $8-8.50 in each. So in general I am going to make an extra 25,000 this year by growing it myself. Which doesn’t sound like a tremendous amount but I have 500 different plants that I can do that with. Some plants I can do that in even bigger quantities and higher margins. Creating the products is the the easiest, or quickest way to profits but it provides the most if you can do it.

In short, create the market place with great inventory and prices. Then start making your own inventory. It’s why the big grocery stores have their own brand of goods. Its much better profits. And in my business having it made by the seller makes it sound better, fresher, and more local which is a bonus. And all this just takes a decade or two to create. Easy Peasy

Domain of the Day: You have to be long on anything bioengineering or medical right now. Those businesses are the ones flush with cash. 21 years old. Taken in 33 extensions Names at Auction or Available for Pickup The dot co are tearing it up, even at wholesale One of the few two word dot io I would buy I think big city Geo and .vc go together well Getting some good bids which is understandable

IO.AI One of two times you can get io and ai together

Namejet and Sedo & More Domains at Action Nice to see a name with a nice low reserve at Sedo Nice solar name in the sedo expiry names today Has a high reserve which would be a tough flip but a heck of a Expiry name. 25 years old. Taken in 31 extensions. Gem of a name “Garden House” in German Think of what it would be in English and then divide by 10. Just kidding, I have no idea what the German spelling of a dot com is 19 years old and taken in a giant 85 extensions. Lander has a link to the Godaddy Namescon auction that this is in Just generic enough that it actually makes a good brand Sounds like a good clothing brand. No bids

Godaddy Domains With Bids Marketing from the safety of your own home. Or just U as an acronym for something Comparison site ready to roll Cause we all hate that fake fresh taste From a pure brandables point of view this may be my favorite Great mantra, decent domain name As good of letters as you can buy. I’ll be in the bidding Most bids on the board. I can’t think of the last time I really liked the name that has the most bids the day before. There have been a few premier names that were head and shoulders above the rest People actually collects these. Although the plural seems like a better retail name to me The people that hustle the most aren’t the ones that say they hustle the most It’s better to end with a doctor Iris like the eyeball iris Same here. Intelligence name. Great market to be in right now and probably for a long long time The best .net seem to be doing OK. It’s a sliver of a dot com but they really haven’t gone down at all. Might be opportunity but don’t take my word for it You’ve heard the saying “I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice scream. Love this one. Price is higher because of the 800K backlinks but a fun name It’s round and the Chinese love round numbers You just assume I’m on it because its a bee name. Maybe You’d be closer to right on this one My name is Earl It rhymes and its so Meta

  1. Did you buy ? I think it would make a great brand for environmental awareness (cow farts contribute to ozone depletion) or for a service like Amazon Prime . . .Rib .
