As Shane was the first to report a few days ago, Frank Schilling has launched the all new DomainNameSales.com. After checking it out the last couple of days I must admit it is impressive. For those of you who haven’t seen it, it’s a domain site like no other. It’s the only domain site that provides an in-depth look at one of the largest domain portfolios in the world, providing up to date information on domain inquiries and quotes to prospective buyers. Needless to say, being able to see the domains that end-users are interested in is a gold mine to the average domainer. Within two days of the site’s launch, I’ve already identified a trend that makes me realize I have a major hole in my portfolio.
I’ve never been a LLLL.com kind of guy, but I might be soon. One of the big things that jumps out at me from the inquiry and quotes list is just how many 4L domains are listed…and some of them are just average at best, such as HZQC.com. I counted well over 25 inquiries for LLLL.com’s from just yesterday alone. With all the drops I see, I always believed LLLL’s were a bit overrated for the most part, especially the average ones. While I realize people do drop them for a reason, being able to see the amount of inquiries 4L’s receive also makes me realize there are still a lot of buyers out there for these names.
The transparency that DomainNameSales.com provides and the ability to now view market activity and interests has already taught me that I should really look into purchasing some quality LLLL domains. When I say quality, I don’t necessarily mean RING.com or any exact match keyword. Just some simple CVVC or CVCV’s would be good to own and sit on…and the best part is, they’re available…for anyone who wants to pick them up. Heck, there are 4 pages of LLLL.com’s listed on DropDay for today alone.
For those of you who haven’t checked out the new DomainNameSales.com yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. The opportunity to see how one of the most successful domainers makes his money is one we should all take advantage of. Like me, you may identify some opportunities to better your portfolio and potentially make more money with domain sales…and that is why we’re all here, isn’t it?
