This post isn’t going to make you rich, but it demonstrates that there are still opportunities even if you are just entering the domain industry or only have a few bucks to your name. You can take a few bucks and make it into a few more with some effort. It’s not likely that anyone will come knocking your door down making you an offer for these names, but if you do your research, you could come up with a decent list of potential buyers. If you are able to educate those potential buyers, you could have a sale.
First lets take a step back and note that automated domain appraisal tools are just that, tools. They are not exact, they may be inaccurate, and they never factor in the human element. That said, here are 5 names I found this morning, while drinking a cup of coffee, that have an estimated value of $500 or more according to Estibot.
In case the screenshot is too hard to read, the names are:
I listed them in ascending order of estimated value. I chose only dot com names. You are welcome to register these, as I said, they are available for hand reg at the time of this posting.
A couple of observations. First, what jumped out at me is that someone has registered the dot org version of ChangeManagementCertification. The tells me there is at least one lead that might be interested in buying the dot com. Why did he only register the dot org? I don’t know and that could also mean he/she is clueless and won’t have any interest in the dot com. However, Change Management is a hot topic in business today and there should be plenty of other potential leads out there.
The image above is from Valuate.com. It uses the same brain as Estibot, but I prefer its visual display a bit more. Makes it easy to compare domains and also easy on the eyes. RetireeMeidcalPlans.com is interesting for a couple of reasons. One is that I once owned it and let it drop. The other is that someone has registered what appears to be the less valuable singular version of the name. This was not the case, as far as I know, when I owned the domain. The singular points to medicare.oneexchange.com which appears to be a legit website and could be a good candidate for purchasing this plural domain on the aftermarket. Look at the difference in the CPC!
There it is. The world is your oyster. If you decided to register any of the above names, leave a comment to let us know. I’d be interested in following up with you to see how you do with these and share the story with everyone if you’re up for it. Good luck.
