Inside two weeks, my Afternic featured listing have resulted in two sales.
It was just a couple weeks ago that I started my experiment with Afternic’s “Featured Listing” service, listing 11 of my domains in the Home Featured category. So far two of my domains have met their reserves and will sell.
YouSubmit.com – closes today at 9:19PM ET. Current offer is $180. The domain’s listing has received almost 400 views since upgrading it to Featured.
Decay.com – closes July 14. Current offer is $2900.
I also received an offer on a third domain, Wifi.us, but did not trigger the reserve.
Once the reserve is triggered, domains show up in the “Closing Soon” section of the site. This gives them great exposure and usually results in more bids. You may recall that YouSubmit.com entered the “Closing Soon” section at $100 with one bid. It now has 8 bids.
The “Closing Soon” section of Afternic typically has a dozen domains. Right now the list is bloated with a number of domains about to close:
-123casino.us $15,100 (can someone explain this one to me?!?)
