In May, the .ME Registry held an auction of .ME domain names at Sedo, and that auction resulted in over $150,000 in sales, with high dollar sales on Cruise.ME, Air.ME, Malta.ME, Legal.ME, and others. Nearly 100 domain names were sold in the Registry auction.
A company called Brands-and-Jingles is hoping for similar results, and they plan to auction 190 .ME domain names running through July 12. The reserve prices range from $149 and $999. To view all of the domain names that are up for sale, you can visit Sedo.com/ME.
If you have the inventory to do it, I think it’s smart to work with a company like Sedo to hold a private auction event like this. It can help generate revenue and will bring attention to a large portfolio of domain names. The prices yielded may be less than selling individually, but it creates a nice liquidity event for the owners (and Sedo). In a couple of days, I will offer some tips on holding an auction like this if you have the inventory and desire to do so.
What are your top picks for the auction, and how much do you think it will generate in sales?
