DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Auction Picks: Friday, October 9th, 2015

Oct 09 2015

You want to know a common theme of all the great domain scams in the last 10 years?  Website and minisite buildouts.   Why? Because nobody has the time and/or ability to build out a quality site that will make money.  And guess what these companies all promise.  A built out website that will generate consistent revenue streams.  And how many do?  You tell me but from everything I’ve heard, not many.    It’s every domain investors dream.  To simply buy a name and then have something built on it that will pay back each and every month.  An instant business.  I won’t name all the companies that have offered it but they all pretty much left the industry with a black eye.  I will save you a lot of money believing the next few statements.  It takes a lot of time, money, and effort to build out ONE site, let alone multiple.  You are building a business and building a business is difficult.  It’s not as simple as paying someone to deliver you a quick finished product.  If the company providing you the service were any good at it they would simply build out their own and make millions off their site.  But the can’t so they are going to do it for you.  Exactly like sports picks.  If they were great at picking the games they don’t want or need clients. They’ll kill it at the casino.  But they don’t and they sell it to people that dream of making easy money.  There is no easy money except for buying LLLL.coms and waiting a year (just kidding, you could lose money their too).  And no Adam has not refunded my friends money for the site he built him that is terrible.  Hoping he does the right thing but there is probably a wait in the refund line.   Here are today ‘s names. Click for current prices  Popular first name. 16 years old   I don’t drink milk  13 years old.  Not Chinese premium but I still think its premium.  Shane premium   All the bids probably playing on the Lager thing not the acronym side  Biggest price I’ve seen on a non CVCV in a while at Godaddy  No bidders.  Not a bad brand for $12  Chinese generally don’t do dot org but if they start they’ll start here  Upgrade name for a few companies   Running earphones is what comes to mind.  One bidder at $12   No bidders.  Great horror name.   Most people know the term and its not as awful as it sounds  Can’t go wrong with 88 at the end   Patterns are what makes or breaks a name.  That and the numbers   Under $300 at press time which at this point isn’t too bad   Q for quality  The plural is an easy four even five figure name  Great dating app.  Short and hot  327,000 people which means a lot of homes

Special Domain Shane ONLY Coupon…….. CODE IS DDCDS2015 – Good 30% off Discount Domain Club to get the lowest renewal prices Godaddy offers (DDC)  Not a bad name if you get it cheap enough.  No bidders  Doing well as expected.  Even Namejet is putting up great prices  You know I like all LLLL.coms that end in C or A

FOR OTHER GREAT NAMES FOR SALE MAKE SURE TO VISIT CAX.COM  Great English acronym letters.  19 years old.  The I will hold back the price yet I still think this sells for a great number down the road.  I think of Miss Piggy’s boyfriend.  Josh Groban.  17 years old   I see this as a marketing name.  2nd only to a Kung Fu grip.  17 years old   Nice and short.  Possible five figure name down the road  If you are going to do this is the kind you want to own  Another one of those saying names that Sr. Berkens and others do so well with   Chinese  If it goes cheap enough I will buy it.  People sell ladybugs as an organic bug killer/eater   You know it is or will be a company at some point  Since you’re in the mood you might as well pick up this one   We still doing dot me?   Chinese loveliness.   Qu Mu Lu Tao .  I made that up but it could be Chinese

    Very true these schemes have taken in the largest number of victims.

    Newcomers should also be warned of:

    – shill bidding (best to set a budget and stick to it)
    – brokers that play both sides buyer and seller
    – payment/escrow not through

    To name a few more

      Ikehook, its obvious these and most awards are a popularity contest. Not to say people don’t deserve recognition for building themselves up to the point they are looked at as experts in the field, but domaining is all about generating income, and I can’t think of anyone else who sold themselves as being able to help domainers build out and make money as much and with as much visibility as Adam.

    “If the company providing you the service were any good at it they would simply build out their own and make millions off their site. But the can’t so they are going to do it for you. Exactly like sports picks. If they were great at picking the games they don’t want or need clients. They’ll kill it at the casino.”

    I see so many different offers online where this applies. The reason given for sharing a “system” and not just killing it themselves is always to give back etc.

    The only person giving back is Bill Gates. When you have $1M you realize there are cars that sell for $2M, when you have $50M you realize there are houses that sell for $100M. Unless Bill Gates is telling you he is giving back then take caution because you are being sold a dream.

    If it sounds too good to be true, then it isn’t.

    I have relatives who have yet to learn this adage.

    They tend to become the serial “taken.”

    I contacted Niche Websites back in August regarding website development and SEO generation on two websites. Luckily, Niche Websites never responded to my ticket. I’m glad I was in no rush to part with my money. Big thanks for Shane for bringing this possible Domain website Ponzi scheme to light.

    The sports picks example is not correct as if you are a successful sports bettor, bookmakers will limit your bets.

    At the same time, it is true that the majority of services selling picks are marketers selling people the dream of easy money as successful sports bettors are more likely to use “beards” to place their bets than sell their picks.
