I held a contest to see who could guess the value order for my seven domain names I had up for auction this week on NameJet. Unfortunately, not one person guessed that PortStLucieRealEstate.com would be the highest valued sale, so nobody won the $200 contest.
The auctions didn’t do as well as I hoped, but as with all no reserve auctions, it can be a bit of a gamble. In retrospect, I should have practiced what I preach and reached out to end users about the auctions. Stupidly, I turned down a higher offer for one of the names in January, and I didn’t contact that person to let him know about the auction. Pure laziness and I lost out on a couple grand in profit. Live and learn.
Ultimately, I came out about even, with some profitable deals and a couple of losses. I think the buyers grabbed decent names at good prices, and hopefully, they will make money on their investments.
