I look at most of my GoDaddy Auction buys as a means of adding inventory to my portfolio. What I mean is that I don’t typically acquire gems from GoDaddy Auctions that I plan to keep until I get the right offer. They are names I can generally buy inexpensively – from around $20/each to $2k +/-. I spend more when necessary, but the idea is that I will price the names I buy anywhere from around $1k to the low five figures, depending on the name, and then regularly sell enough of these names to make the effort worthwhile.
I thought I would share 25 domain names I have acquired via GoDaddy Auctions in approximately the last 6 months. I regularly read comments and forum posts about how companies with API access are winning everything, but I don’t really agree with that assessment. Quite a few of the $50 or less domain names were closeout buys or only had one bidder.
Some of these domain names may never sell and others will sell for a nice ROI. Almost all are listed on GoDaddy/Afternic with a reasonable buy it now price. I don’t think there are any gems on the list, but I do think a decent percentage will profitably sell in the next 5 years:
