Are you guilty of pricing your domain name on public sites? A good chunk of Domain Name Investors are guilty of pricing domain names and listing them on domain name forums on a daily basis. There is nothing wrong with posting domain names for sale on public forums but there is a problem when you add the discounted price and your domain name to the title of your sales thread that ends up on search engines permanently.
The other day I was ready to invest $6500 U.S.D to purchase a 3 Letter Dot Com Domain Name (LLL) listed on a domain name forum. While doing some research on the domain name I found 50+ indexed sales threads posted on numerous domain name forums with title tags that read:
- Buy this LLL.com for $8000 this Friday only!
- Weekend Discount LLL.com for $7800
- Black Friday Special LLL.com for $6800
My example title tags above do no justice to some of the title tags I found on Google Search Results dating all the way back to 2001!
Why would I invest $6500 U.S.D into a domain name that is haunted by past sales threads that reduce my chances of selling the domain name for a profit?
Domain Name Investors are not always thinking Long-Term! They buy and sell domain names for a quick profit! This type of domain name investing is harming our industry and our domain name values. We need to think long-term as a community and protect our virtual assets. Otherwise potential End Users with large budgets will pay us less for our domain names!
From Reg Fee Domain Names to LLL.com Domain Names, as Domain Name Investor we need to protect the value of our Dot Com’s and its future!
Make the change for 2014 and help boost domain name profits!
Until my next Domain Name Investment Article, Happy Domaining!
