AUCTION RECAP OF OCTOBER 21, 2019

A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on October 21, 2019.

If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve.  I’m only showing where the price was when the domain auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

Domain Name “Minimum Offer” Explained

Liquid Web WW

When you see a price, even a minimum offer price, that number gets implanted in your brain and your mindset automatically sets the purchase price expectations. This is called price anchoring.

$999 MSRP, Now only $499. By looking at that, my brain is instantly seeing the $500 savings as the $999 becomes the anchor price. I feel that I’m getting a great deal at $499, because of the $500 savings.

But when it comes to domain names and minimum offer amounts, you should actually put on blinders, the majority of the time.

Let me explain.

Most domain name owners own many domain names, not just the one you may be interested in.

The minimum offer amount is only one box of many settings for each and every domain name for the owner to do something with. Most do nothing with the minimum offer option, so it defaults. Others use a batch update feature and set all the domains they own to a random number to prevent general low ball offers.

In general, the minimum offer amount displayed at this point means nothing!

Why even show a minimum offer or even offer the option to sellers then? It’s a great question and one that needs to be looked at by domain sellers and even marketplaces and brokerage services. The reason the minimum offer option is available is because some smart domain owners actually use it to their advantage.

What if you set your minimum offer amount to what you would normally set your buy it now price to?

By doing this, you are utilizing the price anchoring effect to your full advantage. You could sell the domain at the minimum offer amount, or higher, and the buyer would still feel they are getting a great deal. Just be realistic with your pricing though, or you will scare potential buyers away.

You can also use the minimum offer amount to create a "range." The minimum offer amount would be the lowest and your buy it now (BIN) price the highest. Expect a minimum offer amount to be within 70-90% of the buy it now price, and anything under that is going to be hard to overcome the price anchoring. Your best option is to use the price anchoring effect to your advantage and not as a default, or as a random minimum offer amount just to display something there!

What’s happening overall with minimum offer amounts?

  • A domain seller may not wish to hint at a price they would sell at, if there is no BIN price.
  • Prices change often, so it may require constant minimum offer price updating and purchase price updating.
  • Dealing with large portfolios and individualizing prices for each domain is a daunting task.

Market confusion

A lot of buyers confuse the “minimum offer” amount as an expected purchase price or pretty close to it. The majority of the time, this is really far from the truth with domain names. That minimum offer amount is likely a default setting (or a general batch update amount) that could be thousands of a percentage point away from an actual purchase price.

When I see a domain name that is for sale, I want an idea or range of what I may be able to purchase it for. That’s the impression I want to convey, so that both parties don't waste their time. Is there even a chance the domain is within my budget? I don’t want to see a minimum offer of $300, proceed with placing an offer around that amount, and then receive a $300,000 dollar quote back. That $300 is still stuck in my head via price anchoring, and I’m out the door due to price shock as the price skyrocketed from $300 to $300K!

If you're a domain name owner, think about this: Price anchoring is real. Are you setting yourself up for potentially losing a sale because your minimum offer amount on your domain name is a default or group minimum offer setting, not remotely close to what you would actually sell for? What kind of expectations are you setting?

If you're a buyer truly interested in purchasing the domain name, ignore the minimum offer amount and place an offer closer to what you are actually willing to pay for the domain name. Leave yourself a little wiggle room because negotiations are an expected element of any business.

Brandable domain name sales week 41: Loxo.com, Ohne.com, PowerHost.com

Boom. More than half of the sales on this week’s list are in the five-figure range. The top sale goes to NameJet where the expired domain Loxo.com went for a cool $18,000. Organic period products (aka tampons) creator ohne which is currently selling from ohne.co acquired the matching Ohne.com domain name for $15,000 via Uniregistry which for now, forwards to the .co domain. The femtech company previously raised an undisclosed amount of funding.

Afnic Give the 7 “A”s In Determining A TLD’s Success

AFNIC logo
Take Control of Your Domain Names

A post on the Afnic blog this week is intended to give food for thought on what makes up a successful top-level domain, suggesting one way could be via the 7 As – awareness, amplitude, advantage, access, adoption, activity and affect.

For each TLD, the post by Loïc Damilaville notes, there are different metrics. Legacy gTLDs, new gTLDs and ccTLDs are all different, and even within the differing TLDs there are differing metrics – success for a .brand gTLD is completely different for a generic gTLD or ccTLD. And even with generic gTLDs there are differing metrics.

So a summary of the 7 As as outlined by Damilaville, who is a Deputy Director General at Afnic, manager of the French ccTLD .fr as well as 17 new gTLDs and a number of ccTLDs for French territories, are:

1) Awareness: the most well-known market factor as well as relating to an objective reality: “domain names in general such as new TLDs still suffer from a certain lack of awareness among the general public” and “individuals are simply unaware of this precious tool for consolidating their online presence.”

2) Amplitude: refers “to a TLD’s volume potential in terms of target audience and catchment area.” This varies from highly restrictive TLDs to open generics such as “the highly restrictive .BANK, to the .COOP for cooperatives, for example, which cannot really be consider as ‘failures’ when they achieve tens of thousands of names. As for ccTLDs, which usually have local reach, Amplitude will depend to a large extent on the spread of the Internet in the particular country.”

3) Advantage: “the advantages generated by the TLD for both clients and the registry with its registrars. It’s the ‘value-added’ in the wider sense that will explain why registrars will be more or less inclined to suggest this TLD to their clients.”

4) Access: this refers to “market access, meaning their capacity for being listed with the right registrars for the target audience.” This varies for .com that is available through almost all ICANN-accredited registrars while by “way of contrast, some TLDs are only issued by a handful of registrars, which can compromise their development. ccTLDs are often marketed by their own local registrar networks, a minority of which have the sole status of ‘ICANN registrar’, although this does not prevent them from developing a dense network across national territory.”

5) Adoption: is the TLD seen as a “must-have” or “nice- to-have” when it comes to Internet presence? The answer Damilaville notes “will often depend on the target audience, but we can look at the example of .CORP / .BRAND, which are currently ‘nice-to-have’ for major groups but might become ‘must-have’ in a few decades.”

6) Activity: “a TLD will last if it is economically viable, but also if it can be sure of a good renewal rate. This relates in part to the use that owners make of the names. Is it sites providing content and functionalities that can extend as far as e-commerce? Or is it just parking pages or websites generated automatically but of no interest to visitors?”

7) Affect: lastly “’Affect’ is also about the renewal rate, representing the retention rate that goes beyond the actual level of usage.”

How to Buy Cheap Domain Names for Resale

Liquid Web WW

Do you want to make money with domain name flipping? Before you can resell a domain name for a profit, you need to own it. So, what are your buying options?

Web hosting companies. Web hosting companies are known for their sale of web hosting. Often times, when you purchase a hosting package, you get a free domain name. Despite this common sale, individual domain names are sold too. For many, it gives them comfort and peace of mind in knowing they are doing business with a reputable company, such as HostGator.

eBay. eBay.com is a popular online marketplace. Most internet users use the website to buy clothes, toys, books, and movies. Yes, this is nice, but you may be surprised with what is sold online. Domain names are sold too. You may get a good deal online. Selling domain names on eBay is convenient, but not the most profitable approach. Those selling are likely inexperienced and not aware of other methods of selling. This means you may get a great domain name for a cheap price.

On eBay, you will find domain names available in their famous auction style format or in Buy It Now format. When bidding on a domain name in an auction format, you bid. If you really want to own the domain name, set a maximum bid. With each bid, yours will automatically increase in price until the maximum is reached. This allows you to step away from the computer. Be cautious with Buy It Now listings, as most sellers want more than the domain name is worth.

Domain name listing websites. Domain name listing websites are third party websites that specialize in the selling of domain names. In addition to domain names, other moneymaking opportunities are bought, sold, and traded. It is common to find domain names, turnkey websites, and established websites available for sale.

Domain name listing websites are a great way to get a cheap domain name. This is because many new and inexperienced flippers turn to these websites, like SEDO. The only problem you face is high competition. Professional flippers lie in wait for the opportunity of a lifetime, which is an inexperienced domain owner selling a quality name for only $100. To find cheap domains on listing websites, monitor them closely and often.

Internet marketing forums. Internet marketing forums are popular online. They are where webmasters converge to learn the latest tips and tricks. By staying up-to-date on the latest in internet marketing tactics, webmasters increase their profits. Although these forums are used to share tips and tricks, they are also used to make money. Many online forums have a buy, trade, or sell section. This is where you may find domain names for sale.

Although you can find domain names for sale on an internet marketing forum, they may not be cheap. Internet marketers make money by having knowledge and the ability to research. If an internet marketer is selling a domain name, they have a good idea of its value. It won’t hurt to look, but don’t expect to find a $5 domain name for sale that can flip for $10,000. In the rare event it does occur, it sells in a hurry.

As you can see, there are many ways to find cheap domain names for sale. Your best option is to purchase an unregistered domain name for less than $10, but if faced with a good opportunity that requires more investment, take it.
