GoDaddy will be holding a Google Plus Hangout to discuss buying domain names on the company’s aftermarket platform. The event will be held on the company’s Google+ page on October 2, and it will begin at 7pm and last for one hour. There is no cost to attend the event, and the event is open to anyone interested in learning more about GoDaddy aftermarket domain name acquisitions.
Leading this event will be Joe Styler, Aftermarket Product Manager at GoDaddy, and Brian Cowen, Lead Domain Broker at GoDaddy. It looks like they will share advice and strategy on how to buy domain names via GoDaddy’s aftermarket (auctions and private acquisitions). Participants can submit questions to be answered during the hangout. It also looks like people can submit questions or comments in advance, and I assume those might be addressed during the event.
I have found that some people get confused about the various GoDaddy aftermarket listings, so hopefully this will educate a small sector of end users. Personally, I am hopeful the company will make some changes to its aftermarket, as it has confused a couple of my recent prospective buyers (ie someone confused about a minimum offer of $3,000 vs. a buy now listing). With GoDaddy’s expansive reach, I could see their aftermarket growing into a platform that is more beneficial to domain investors, but I digress.
GoDaddy hosts a variety of Google+ Hangouts aimed at helping small businesses and small business owners. I would imagine this Hangout is also targeted towards small business owners who want to learn about buying a great domain name in the aftermarket rather than domain investors, but perhaps domain investors who don’t frequently use GoDaddy could learn something, too.
If you think you could benefit from this Hangout, you should sign up in advance to add it to your calendar.
