Some great deals and some questionable purchases.
NameJet just released a list of sales over $2,000 from April. Here are my thoughts on some of them…the last one being the most interesting.
Certifications.com $17,100 – I like this domain. There are thousands of certifications people can get, and many of them come with a fee. I’m not sure how many are offered online, but this domain could be a fantastic directory with an affiliate or lead gen model.
Through.com $16,000 – I considered this domain name, but couldn’t come up with an idea of how I’d use it. It’s more of a brandable domain name.
EOH.com $15,799 – Quality three letter domain names under $25,000 are always a good deal.
BlackCar.com $14,100 – This one is interesting. There are lots of Google ads for “Black Car Service” but none for “Black Car”. That said, Black Car would make a great domain for a town car service.
Truckers.com $9,701 – An absolutely huge market. Trucking companies are always advertising for drivers and drivers seek communities. A forum sponsored by trucking companies would be perfect for this domain.
BaseballCap.com $4,601 – I’m not so sure on this one. I’d prefer BaseballCaps.com (plural).
CWA.org $3,699 – This domain name could be resold for a lot of money. Lots of acronyms, including a large union: Communication Workers of America.
PrivateChefs.com $3,101 – Personal chefs are a big business, and it’s no longer just for the rich. There are now “on demand” private chef services for get-togethers.
CheckCash.com $3,099 – Check cash or cash check?
MobileLocksmith.com $2,700 – I consider all locksmiths mobile. I own a bunch of “mobile” term domain names, but bought them on the geo basis of the city of Mobile, Alabama. When I sold one a while back I was surprised to see it was purchased by a company that used “mobile” as in “we come to you”.
VOIP.info $2,700 – I personally wouldn’t touch a .info domain with a ten foot pole these days. They’ll lose value with new TLDs coming out.
StartupFactory.com $2,571 – Startup Factory, LLC, which operates at StartupFactory.co, should buy this.
WorkflowManagement.com $2,100 – this may have been the steal of the month, and I’m sorry I didn’t see this one coming down the pike. Huge industry. I sold a similar domain for a smaller segment of the software industry for about $25k.
