1) I’m happy to report that the newsletter is going great! We are fast approaching a half a million in sales since we fired this thing back up in November. Sure other venues like Sedo or Afternic clear 2-4x that much every month but I think we are doing pretty good for a small personalized operation.
2) Historically when we run a domain in the newsletter it’s a one chance opportunity to get that domain at that price. Sometimes the name will show up again in the newsletter in the following days or weeks but with a reduced price. That is still going to be the case, any listing is still only valid for 24 hours and domains may or may not show up again reduced however now some names may start to show up again for a few or perhaps even more than a few consecutive days at the same price. We have noticed that some days are simply better than others. Some days people are buying, some days they are not, for various reasons. We have tested this here and there and sometimes a domain that had no interest on one day gets interest and sold on the next. Furthermore we have had a lot of domains run through the newsletter that “should have sold” and didn’t. Then shortly after we get the name sold through one of our other partners often times for even more than we offered it for in the newsletter. What has happened in that situation is our subscriber base blew it. Even crazier is often the same person that buys the domain when we sell it with another partner is one of our subscribers as well, just paid more for it somewhere else. So we want to give you more of a chance not to blow it on certain domains where we feel it is merited, so don’t be surprised if you see the same listing over and over again for a few days till we go get it sold somewhere else 🙂
3) Just want to give a shout-out to a new forum on the scene at LeasingDomains.com. I think this is a much needed forum as Domain Leasing (although not a brand new idea) is really an emerging thing right now and there are lot of questions to be answered, a lot of details to be worked out, and a lot of gaps to be filled. We look forward to selling leases in the future when that market becomes more mature.
