You’ve seen my post about fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House of New York City, and I want to hold a special “auction” of sorts, with the proceeds being donated to this effort.
I am offering 2 hours of private domain consulting services to the highest bidder. I no longer offer private domain consulting as part of my business, but I am going to make an exception to help reach our goal of raising $5,000 for “Team Ronald.”
Domain consulting services will be offered over the phone or via Skype if you’re outside of the US. If you happen to be in New York City or are able to get to NYC, we can meet in person over coffee or drinks.
We can discuss your domain strategy, I can help evaluate the domain names you and your company own, I can give you some advice on buying or selling domain names, or we can simply talk about domain names for a couple of hours. I may not be the most successful domain expert, but I’ve been doing it full time for a few years.
I will leave this offer open for 72 hours. The highest bid in the comment section at the end of 72 hours, which will be 2:30 Eastern Time on March 17, 2011, will be named the winner. If your bid comes in after the deadline, it won’t count, so please don’t try and wait for the last minute in the event my blog goes down for some reason. I do reserve the right to extend the deadline if the blog does go down for an extended period of time.
Bid increments will be $25, not including final minute bidding if there is any. That means if the high bid is $400 at 2:29 and someone posts a $500 offer and someone else posts a $501 offer at 2:30, the higher offer will win. Any disputes will be settled by me 🙂
Your tax deductible donation to the Ronald McDonald House can be made after you’ve received the two hours of domain consulting (as long as it’s done before April 15). Thank you in advance for your bids, and I look forward to working with someone on this.
BTW, if anyone who donated already would like to turn their donation into a bid (and possibly add to it), they are invited to do so.
UPDATE: Winning bid was $700
