Domain Spotlight:


I sold 6 names at BrandBucket in the last week, I’ve got around 3300 listed and around another 3K waiting review. I know there’s one dude that will leave a comment on my posts like this and say how much better SquadHelp is, maybe for some people, but not for me.

Yes I get it, unnamed commenter, you do better with SquadHelp, though I’m not sure how you know that since you don’t use BrandBucket anymore. And yes I know you’re really good at writing shit about the domains you submit and why they’re amazing brands. But for those of us that have better things to do than write long descriptions for each domain we submit, BrandBucket is the way to go. For everyone else, I’m glad that SquadHelp is a useful and profitable platform, we get it, stop trying to sell it as the only viable option.

Brandbucket isn’t the only place that I’ve been selling domains on a regular basis, in fact I’ve sold more names through Afternic in September, and October wasn’t far behind. The key for me is having one point of contact at Afternic/Godaddy, to help manage my account and keep me focused. That hero is none other than former DSAD writer Aaron Johnson. I send him the names that need listed, he adds them quickly and we kick strategic ideas back and forth.

So the point to take away, is that there isn’t one perfect platform that will meet all your needs. Each focuses on different audiences and employs different strategies to expose your names. I don’t think it’s even possible to ever have one solution that is perfect for everything.

I want each sales platform that I use to be really good at their own unique niche.

  1. Great sales, Josh. It takes a long of very hard work, even more luck, even more skill, and most important – it helps when you are rich and can afford thousands of names.

    Over many years, personally (and everyone is different) I find sell through rates zero for brandpa (60 names for about 5 years), about 0.5% at brandbucket, 0.5% sedo, 1% unireg, and about 6% at squadhelp, averaging about 2% overall, which is, I think about average.

    1. I don’t think rich is an adjective Josh would use to describe himself. Affording thousands of names is just a time and cash flow problem. Josh has been doing this a while and isn’t afraid to sink his profits right back into large numbers of domains. Over time, you can build a really large portfolio – especially when you are good at inventing names and buying names for near reg fee on the drop which is mainly what he does. Renewals aren’t an issue when you have the sales to cover them.
      Take a portfolio of 1000 names:
      $9,000 in renewals
      $50,000 in sales at 2% of portfolio x $2500 per sale
      $15,000 in commissions if all sold at BB
      $26,000 in profits

      Move to 3000 names:
      $27,000 in renewals
      $150,000 in sales at 2% of portfolio x $2500 per sale
      $45,000 in commissions if all sold at BB
      $78,000 in profits

      Even if your sell through drops to 1% of portfolio at $3k, the profits are basically the same albeit with a lot more work so maintaining a sell through rate as the portfolio grows matters, but it matters less the larger the portfolio gets.

      Move to 10,000 names w/ sales at 2%:
      $90,000 in renewals
      $500,000 in sales at 2% of portfolio x $2500 per sale
      $150,000 in commissions if all sold at BB
      $260,000 in profits (starting to get rich)

      Move to 10,000 names w/ sales at 1%:
      $90,000 in renewals
      $250,000 in sales at 1% of portfiolio x $2500 per sale
      $75,000 in commissions if all sold at BB
      $85,000 in profits

  2. It’s always nice to see when you post your thoughts on buying and selling domains. Hopefully some of the commenters don’t dissuade you from doing so. Even when you are just posting recent sales numbers from BrandBucket, Afternic, etc., it’s good to get your perspective on things.

    Fwiw, I used to be getting better results at SquadHelp, but over the last year, I am seeing better results at BrandBucket, with a smaller amount of names. I, too, want no part in writing descriptions, etc.
