Afternic experiment of April 2020

Hello everyone,

This is the fourth post of the Afternic experiment series after I published January, February and March results which I’m hopeful that some of my readers find it interesting.

Had total 5 sales via Afternic with total $17,826 Gross sales. I consider this a good month but at least couple of things were missing. First, there was no big sale like high 4 figures or any of 5 figures. Secondly, almost no offers came in this month which usually comes via Afternic broker.

Some of the highlights of April 2020 are as below:

There were once again very close to 600 inquiries which includes the inquiries on repeating domains as well. this time I just reached a little over 3,750 domains right at the end of April. This is to note that this was one of the slowest month in terms of acquiring domains.

2 out of 5 sales happened via Afternic cart which includes Cygnini.com for $6,000 and Rebourne.com for 5,000.

AssureRx.com sold for $2,988 and NarrativeContent.com for $950. Both these happened via GoDaddy.

Only one happened via Afternic partner registrar which was Communicator.org sold for $2,888.

Holding period of the above sold domains was from 1 to 6 years. Altogether acquisition cost for these 5 domains was under $800.

On the other hand, one of my fellow domainer friend whom I’m sure many of you know with the name of @JudgeMind at NamePros who shared his sales of April and with his permission I’m going to share it below for you guys:

Nosepod.com $299
Lumos.ca $899
Aircans.com $799

Although he had a decent last month where he sold a lot more domains in total but not that many via Afternic. Above 3 domain acquisition cost was $38 only!

Afternic experiment of March 2020

Hello everyone,

This is the third post of the Afternic experiment series after I published January and February results which I’m hopeful that some of my readers find it interesting.

It was a bright start of March with 4 sales in first 15 days and the remaining 16 days went totally silent which was not very surprising because of the situation globally due to Covid pandemic.

Some of the highlights of March 2020 are as below:

There were once again very close to 550 inquiries which includes the inquiries on repeating domains as well. this time I just reached 3,700 domains right at the end of March.

As said earlier, I’d 4 sales and all that happened in the first half of March. 3 out of 4 sales happened via GoDaddy which includes Kword.com for $3,888, GoDragonfly.com for $3,988 and EastEight.com for $8,888. Only one happened via Afternic sales lander which was U-6.com sold for $1,888.

Kword.com acquired more than 5 years back. GoDragonfly.com acquired almost 2 years ago. EastEight.com also almost 2 years back and U-6.com more than 5 years before. Altogether acquisition cost for these 4 domains was under $500.

Considering the Covid pandamic haunting globally, I see the number of sales and total amount is decent.

Afternic experiment of February 2020

Hello everyone,

This is the second post after I published January results and this one is even better! So far I’m very happy with the results and the way my leads are handled and keeping me updated with what’s going on.

Some of the highlights of February 2020 are as below:

  1. There were close to 550 inquiries on 3,600 +/- domains in the entire month of February 2020.

  2. Had three domain sales, each one happened via different source. One via Afternic lander, actually the first one for me and the domain was Sillis.com which sold for $1,888. Another sale was via partner registrar which I’m not sure what was the domain because I had another 2 sales via GoDaddy cart of same amount so altogether remaining 3 sales were LipLove.com for $1,988, Summiter.com for $2,888 and Global-Auto.com for $1,988.

  3. Sillis.com acquired 6 years ago. Summiter.com acquired 3 years ago and LipLove.com 2 years back. For Sillis.com I received offer of $1,400 via Afternic but I stood firm on BIN price and eventually sold it 3 days later. Altogether acquisition cost for these 3 domains was in under $500.

  4. With the report I’ve, which shows there are several other ongoing negotiation with buyers whose current maximum offer is mentioned along with the quoted price which is always the BIN price. It’s good to see the progress as well behind the scenes. And I’m pretty happy with the Afternic brokers and especially my account manager who has been exceptional in managing everything.

On the other hand, one of my fellow domainer friend whom I’m sure many of you know with the name of @JudgeMind at NamePros who shared his stats and with his permission I’m going to share it below for you guys:

He had 4 sales in December that were direct leads from Afternic landers and another 6 in January which were direct from Afternic landers. Prices of sold names range from $299-$3799 with a median sale price of $2200.

Below are the domain sales he made in December 2019, January 2020 and February 2020:

December 2019
CamJoin.com
ProfessionalPerformance.com
Hotel-Network.com
Nuraxis.com

January 2020
CareerKinetics.com
VertexWealth.com
KCR.io
MedicalCannabisOnline.com

February 2020
WestCoastLove.com
Buump.com

In my opinion, those are impressive number of sales considering he has domain portfolio of 2,300 domains. An interesting thing is out of 2,300, only 1,900 are listed under Fast Transfers as others are with those registrars which doesn’t support Fast Transfers. His domain portfolio can be seen at Dan and Afternic.

On the other hand, since it’s sales related post so I’ll share an decent sale I made last month via Sedo in the shape of TADA.net for $7,888. Acquired the domain for low-mid $xxx in 2014. Long holding period but paid off very well in the end!

By the way, I’ll be sharing some real good acquisitions in my next post so stay tuned for that.
