After reviewing thousands of domains I am going to list my personal picks. The ones I think have the best chance to sell based on those domains submitted. First I want to thank everyone that submitted domain names. With the exception of the 'Guaranteed Placements' (Which we won't reveal) I picked each and every domain in the auction. I did it in the following manner.
I started with the left column which listed all domain names. When I saw a domain I thought had value, I would look over to the right column for the reserve. If that number was a number that a domainer could be attracted to, it made it to the next round.
I repeated the process. That eliminated some domains as others were just better values and had a better chance at selling.
I then repeated the process again with the remaining domain names. This time looking for bargains that would automatically make it in the auction. A bargain means many people will come in the room targeting that specific domain name. Each will have a number in their head as far as value goes. Then the games begin. THAT is why folks are about to witness an exciting auction with loads of bidding because there are so many bargains. The proof will come when we look back.
So my pick for the auction.....nearly every domain in it as I selected about 90 of the 120. I want to tip my hat to the guys that paid to play. Each of you were a pleasure to deal with and you believe in your asset at the level you set and are out there spreading the word. Contacting end users instead of talking about it. Taking destiny in your own hands.
This is what I call a 'Combustible' auction. What does that mean? It means there is a plan, there is a detonator, there is a stew of ingredients, and if those ingrdients work well with each other, BOOM! get out of the way. I can't do it alone. I needed the domains, I needed the audience. I needed a credible venue with a date and time certain. Now it is up to the attendees as it will be them that detonates my plan....or not. My job was to tempt them as many times as possible with valuable domains at domainer prices where end users were not the target.
And for all the naysayers, let me just say that your collective portfolios don't equal our auction list. So crowing and naysaying is just insulting the owners of those domains and some of them may even be your 'Friends'. So what's the point?
Good luck to all the buyers and sellers. October 18th 2PM Ritz Carlton Hotel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
