Here is a round up of some recent events that I found interesting – hope you do too.
Tale Of Two Drop Catchers
Some interesting results on the domain auctions yesterday. The two most popular domains were lifeinsuranceaustralia.com.au and creditcardsaustralia.com.au. Netfleet were the successful bidding platform – but the screenshots below show the difference between a blind bidding platform (Netfleet); and an open bidding platform (Drop.com.au). I bet the top bidders on Drop were saying some prayers – though unfortunately nobody was listening!
Not Using The Domain
Here’s another example of what I wrote about the other day.
I sold FussyCat.com.au to VIP Petfoods over a month ago, yet they haven’t done anything with the domain. Not criticizing them at all, but if you spend money on a domain name, wouldn’t you at least re-direct it to your own website?
Using The Domains
And here a couple of recent sales of mine where the buyers are actually using the domains!
Resume.com.au was purchased by the holder of the dot com, so in the interim, it was an easy re-direct for them.
Portable.com.au was purchased by the registrants of portablestudios.com.au – and they already have their new site up and running.
If you have any comments on any of the above, I’d love to hear them.
Should you have any suggestions for future stories – or any “hot news”, please let me know.
I’m also always on the lookout for people to interview. It is great to share peoples’ journeys in the domain world. So please get in touch if you would like to be featured. It’s totally free – I’m a great believer in a “rising tide lifts all boats”.
Best wishes for your online success.
