I am selling a few domain names at great prices. Send me a message to purchase:
NewJerseyDoctor.com – $5,000
WateringHoles.com – $5,000
Morissa.com – $850
PlasticSurgeryWebsite.com – $750
CondominiumLoan.com – $500
TelemarketingSite.com – $250
All names are registered at Moniker for an easy push.
Televisions.com sold for just $215,000 according to the newest addition of DNJournal.com‘s weekly sales report. This is a great price for the buyer, as I believe this name was worth well over half a million dollars. Recently, Cameras.com sold for well over a million, and I would value this name similarly. My only reasoning for the low price is that people might be searching for TVs rather than Televisions. Although television margins aren’t huge, I think the new owner could open up a tv store without open box inventory. The price paid is much less than what it would cost to open a television business in a typical shopping mall, and the reach is far greater with Televisions.com.
When selling domain names, I believe most people either rely on end users contacting them or rely on selling to other domain investors. I think there is a market for a domain brokerage that is paid to contact potential buyers of domain names on behalf of domain owners.
The brokerage would collect stats and information about a domain name and present it to potential buyers. This is similar to my post in July, but instead of running an auction, the company would set a BIN price for a particular name or group of names that would be of interest to a company.
Currently, I believe most domain brokers work the opposite way. They receive information about a domain name and blast an email out to a random group of domain buyers. If a more personalized email was sent, the potential buyer could be enticed to make a purchase. It’s the heart of direct marketing (where I have my Master’s Degree), and it would be a great win/win/win for all parties.
