E-Commerce Tips – How Much to Spend on a Domain Name

So right off, lets be clear,  I am biased. I sell and write about premium domains. But I think a reasonable guideline is needed.   I think operators and investors of internet or e-commerce businesses should spend up to 10% of one years sales, or if a startup at least 10% of your friends and family round, on a good domain name.

Why? Because you save so much money operating a online business, but now where will you spend the savings? If you apply the same saving money emphasis to your image, brand, internet address and first impression – you hamstring … Read the rest

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.

The genesis of the thought is I see some of my own late renewing or not renewing names on the auctions – and it seem the dates names could appear varied.

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.
If your in domaining to haggle and negotiate with buyers, buy better names. A good name bought $100 and up wholesale might produce more leads per month. Now everyone wants to buy this type of name for $10, and then wait for the leads to engage buyers. It probably wont happen with … Read the rest

How Many Domains Should I Own ?

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

Domainers Portfolios after Passing Away

Deceased Domain Name Owner
