January and February tend to have a spike in domain name purchase inquiries.
The first two months of the year tend to be good ones for domain sales, or at least domain name inquiries.
Ryan McKegney, CEO of domain offer system DomainAgents, says that the platform has a 10% spike in offer volumes during January and February each year. Many other platforms (and large domainers) experience a similar bump.
Multiple factors seem to be at play.
“Companies often have new budgets and individuals are pursuing their New Year’s resolutions,” McKegney told Domain Name Wire.
The latter seems to be a big factor for smaller domain sales of $1,000-$3,000. Many people decide to start a new business or “side hustle” in conjunction with the new year.
Whatever the reason, domain investors should take advantage of this by making sure their portfolio is listed for sale and all domains link to relevant “for sale” landers.
