Sell a Domain Name with a “Cyber Monday” Deal

3

Today is known as “Cyber Monday,” when there are supposedly lots of great deals to be had at online retailers. Many people wait until Cyber Monday to make a purchase knowing there will be special deals and lower prices offered by retail stores. Domain investors looking to book sales might think about using this to their advantage.

If there are any deals that have not been reached yet, or if there are domain name negotiations that ended unsuccessfully, domain investors might consider reaching back out to the prospective buyer to offer a “Cyber Monday special deal.” People may not only be in a buying mood, but companies might have additional funds in their budgets that they want to spend before the end of the year.

I know nothing about Pierluigi Buccioli beyond the gambling related domain names he shares on Twitter. A tweet he shared yesterday offers two good lessons to highlight for domain investors:

Thankful for These Domain Tools

There is not one perfect domain industry tool that does everything I need. In fact, there are quite a few tools I use regularly, often in conjunction with each other. I use many of these tools to better my domain portfolio, and I use some of these tools for blog-related industry research. I am thankful for all of these tools I use nearly every day:

Amazon Acquires AmazonFarts.com

I was looking through my morning DomainTools Registrant Alert email, and I saw an amusing domain name that caught my attention. I hate to toot Amazon’s horn, but the company is now the registrant of AmazonFarts.com, a domain name that was created in August of 2020.

The AmazonFarts.com domain name is currently registered at MarkMonitor, a brand protection service Amazon uses for many of its domain names. You can have a look at the current Whois record here to see that Amazon is the registrant of AmazonFarts.com:

Overpaying Today for a Deal Tomorrow

It is arguably more difficult than ever to privately acquire a great .com domain names. The majority of investment quality, long registered, domain names are either in the hands of end users or registrants who will not sell cheap. Quite a few are held by investors who are rightfully seeking end user pricing to sell their assets. Put simply, there is a dearth of investment quality .com domain names available to purchase for investment-level pricing.

Off the top of my head, I can think of 15 people I know to be well funded who are regularly chasing after the remaining high quality .com domain names. Many of these investors are friends, and all of them are competitors. When I come across a domain name that is available for sale and the registrant indicates other offers on the table, chances are very good an investor (or multiple investors) I know is on the other end of the offer, biting at the bit to secure a deal.

Sold 2 Weeks Ago for $4,190, FinWise.com Subject of UDRP

A couple of weeks ago, I saw that Finwise.com was pending delete and would be auctioned. I liked the name because it was a mashup of two words – fin (for financial) and wise. FinWise seems like a pretty nice brand name. I did not backorder the domain name, though, because a search I did showed there is a bank called FinWise Bank, and I was concerned they could claim a right to this name, particularly because it would have a new registration date.
