I recently purchased a few domains from GoDaddy. They aren’t anything great but I know I can make money on them down the road at least 10x my small investment. I feel like a lot of people get caught up on seeing the big numbers. Don’t get me wrong, I love to read about how someone flips one for massive amounts of money. If you can start by taking 5 domains and buying them for $50 each, then selling them in a month for $500 that is a huge ROI. To me I don’t care what I sell the name for as long as I am making money. If I make 5x 10x or 100x great, I take it and keep building. The bigger ones will come but don’t be discouraged by the little ones, just make sure you stay in the green.
Apparently there is also two August 2nds and I will be doing one massive list. Get ready.
Welcome to the Auction Recap. My comments are in Bold.
LiveSexClub.com Hate to start the list off so dirty, especially on Sunday but its 18 years old and no bidders at $12. Cost more than $12 for a drink…or so I hear
LiveSexClub.com: $199. Yeah, 12 bucks is about right. Enough to buy a bottle at Costco. Ok maybe I exaggerated.
Danielle.org No bidders. 14 years old. I think you can sell this for a lot more than $12 as an email alone
Danielle.org: $496. even as a .org this is a popular name. About 200,000 people in the US with that name.

BuyBuyBuy.com: $2,125. Was it N’sync or Backstreet Boys?
ChicagoLasik.com Lasic is trademarked but the 16 bids don’t seem to care
ChicagoLasik.com: $1,025. I didn’t know that. The brand is so powerful that people know it by that. Like Ziploc Bags.
