A week and a half ago, I shared a bit of sales data about my business from that week. I do not really share any domain sales info or data for a number of reasons, but given the challenging times we find ourselves in, I wanted to share what I observed in my own portfolio. During that week, I closed five end user sales, which is quite a few considering that my domain portfolio has roughly 1,000 domain names in it.
With another week in the books, I want to provide a follow-up to that article to share my domain sales results and observations from last week.
In short, I did not close any deals. I had several inquiries and a couple of offers, but I did not agree to sell any domain names. In addition, I did not close any sales via Afternic/GoDaddy or Dan.
This is not atypical for my business. In fact, having a week like last week is much more typical than a week with 5 domain name sales. Beyond when I was auctioning domain names several years ago, I don’t recall many weeks with 5 or more end user domain name sales.
I was hoping what I saw would be a trend due to people working from home and spending more time online. I have been preparing for the worst, and grew hopeful with several sales. Observationally, it seems like domain names are moving at a brisk clip, particularly lower priced domain names, but I don’t have the data to back that up. Likewise, as I have said many times, my portfolio is too small to make any statistically significant observations about the industry based on what I have been observing.
I am not planning to share more sales insights or observations, but I felt it was important to follow-up on my prior article because only sharing the positive news wouldn’t really be fair. As always, you are welcome to share insights from what you are observing with your own portfolio.
