In the last 20 days I’ve sold 5 names on BrandBucket.com. I used to think that the only names that would sell were names that had already been registered, names with age or other metrics. So many domainers talk about this a lot that I think I had my mind set on the idea.
I agree in theory that most good names have been registered, but I’ve found time and time again that there are unregistered names with value that have never been registered or that dropped a long time ago.
The main problem with hand registering these types of names is that you have nothing to measure them against other then your gut, and unless you’ve been doing it for a while there’s a good chance that your gut can be wrong. As with any concept or idea in the domain industry your “gut” is a learning process that you expand on as you grow as a domainer.
It takes looking at thousands and thousands of names everyday, watching what sells, what doesn’t and getting a feel for what makes a decent name.
I don’t bring this up so that some new domainer runs out and hand registers lot’s a crap, but rather to emphasize the real job of domainers and the value of presenting the names in the right way.
We are brand makers, innovators, guides for companies looking for a name brand or marketing domain, researchers, trend watchers, and wordsmiths. Our job is to filter through words and find combinations that sound good, are memorable and have some sort of value.
Sure, there are huge companies that know what they want and it’s a one word com that costs 6 or 7 figures, but for the vast majority of people and companies they have no or very little idea.
So we take the pay dirt that we’ve filtered out from all of the useless chaff, present it and sell it to those that don’t know the first thing about mining.
While this can happen on any sales platform, Brand Bucket does an exceptional job of matching the customers who are looking for a name with the paydirt we’ve mined.
