BrandBucket.com just announced that they are changing their commission structure for names priced over $50K. In an email sent yesterday to BB users Michael Krell said the following
“Over the last year we have received many requests from buyers for premium names over $50K, but haven’t had the inventory to fulfill this demand. In an effort to attract the best names to our marketplace, we will be reducing the commission rate for names priced above $50K. Effective immediately, our commission rate for names priced $50K-$99K will be 20% and names priced $100K and over will be 15%. This change will apply to both current and future names on the marketplace.”
I think this is a great idea for the marketplace. They could probably go even lower with the commission for these type of names, I assume the work load is about the same for a 1K or 100K name, but it’s a good start and I think it will attract more high quality names.
In other BB news, I sold 2 names there in the last week or so, one made up brandable and 1 keyword brandable. A lot of people shy away from the normal 30% commission and I understand the concern, but my thinking is why care? There are always more names out there to find and sell, I want to be able to expose my names to as many targeted viewers as possible, sell them and move on. Keep the cash flowing.
I’d rather pay 30% commission on a few grand or under price a domain, than setting it on fire and off loading it for low wholesale on an auction platform when I need cash. Don’t get me wrong, selling on NameJet or Godaddy auctions is a perfectly find and potentially profitable sales model. But if I value and price some names on the lower end of reasonable and properly expose them to buyers, I can attract more impulse buyers and even some investors.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

GoldAdvocacy.com Tell everyone how awesome gold is. Some of the talking points are: “the world is collapsing, gold will be the only usable currency.” Or “Bad times are ahead, buy gold now”. I’ve been hearing this for 10 years. Gold is a good long term investment, but if the world governmental systems and economies collapse, the last thing I want is a bunch of heavy gold to hump around. I’ll take bullets and canned food.
