Just the Numbers – Godaddy Expired Auctions

Depending on time, I search Godaddy auctions every 7-10 days. This weekend I decided to up my game and track the exact dates I can search and add to watch list at Godaddy auctions.  I haven’t rethought my approach for about 7 years.

Why every 7 -10 days? Well for me its all about the watch list. Ever since I started with auctions the ability to search by keyword, … Read the rest

Want More Offers – Buy Better Names.

Negotiating Domain Name Prices with Buyers
Are you not getting enough offers. You may be looking at the cost side too closely and only buyer cheaper names, and names you can get. Since everyone else could have got those names, your not getting offers.  Buy Better Names.

How Many Domains Should I Own?

So another take on the 1 to 2% portfolio turnover number that is thrown around quite a bit, is to reverse the numbers to determine how many domains you should own.

An owner with 1000 names should sell about 10-20 a year. Now I’m looking at this in the real domaining sense of end user sales at full price. So this is buy it now off landing pages or in aftermarkets or inbound inquiries.
If your selling wholesale, or quick flip or closeout you should be doing 5-10%, if your a full time domainer … Read the rest

Now puppies are one thing, and bad domain names … Read the rest

Deceased Domain Name Owner
