A new Domain Sherpa episode was published this morning. It’s fun to see the contrast of different styles between the “premium guys” and others. I think it’s great that Amaar and Frank have confidence in their names to set those prices. Confidence and nerves of steal is really the only way to get those prices. I think that they were able to get to that level by working the lower end of names first. Frank talked about packaging a group of construction names, in the early days and selling them with a little sweat.
I’m certainly not opposed to shooting for those prices on certain names, and I do have an “out” by leaving the landing page without a BIN price. My main focus is moving and selling names because for me, having momentum and getting sales is more fun. As I progress I do occasionally put a really high BIN price on certain names.
My thinking has always been that pricing above 10K shrinks your audience down to a very small level, and that lower level is willing and able to spend money on aftermarket domains, just not that much. I’ve also found that if I put the work in, I can find lots of names that I think will sell everyday. It might not be the best course of action, I have no idea if I price every name I own at $25K if any would sell. I do think that the process I’ve followed has allowed me to better identify names that could sell for $25K and which ones will easily sell for a lower profit.
I’m glad that Ammar sold Vape.io, I own Vape.ly and hopefully in a few years North Africa will stabilize and someone will buy it. 🙂 I hand regged it a few year ago.
