T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Auction Results, High Bids and Sales Posted.

Morning Folks!!

And now we start adding the and considering the dividends of a no nonsense auction. Below is the list of each domain and whether it was sold (left) or the high bid (right) is listed if it did not sell. This does not establish a market value but it does show what some of the top domainers in the world would pay on that day. Each auction was started at eith $1, $100, or $1000 and worked up from there. All we can do is build on what works and adjust what does not.

The 'Guaranteed Placement Program' was a hit. It allowed 19 domain owners to take control and promote with a guaranteed placement. It is not for everyone. But it is part of a successful auction formula. It will be something we will use in the future. I just hope folks jump on it earlier and take 6 months to advertise and get the info out. 5 domains sold from that group. In return they got guaranteed placement at their asking price, at a place and time certain and were able to get a significantly discounted commission. We will start accepting domains for our October 2012 auction starting in April.

Couple notes:

I was thinking if all domains in the auction were no reserve and each sold for $2000 then it would be 100% sell rate and I would do the same $$$ volume. So while the perception is nice, the reality is you get a lot of base on balls and the same runs scored but no chance to get a hit or a homer or a grand slam. For a guy that is always swinging for singles and homers, not my style.

The audience needs $$$, we need credibility and the domains have to be priced for the market. We will get there. Confidence takes time. The big dollars are with end users. It's not easy to get multiple end users interested in a specific domain at a specific time. Yet. But that may be changing and as things evolve, we will evolve with it.

    Some interesting ones that didn’t sell there (was the reserve price not met?) and amazing what some people will pay for domain names.
    I hope they are worth it in the end!

    @ Rick said:”I just hope folks jump on it earlier and take 6 months to advertise and get the info out.”
    It sounds like a plan. It makes sense.
    The ideal would be to close submissions six months ahead, and encourage participants to focus on marketing.
    No last minute entries which benefit from the grunt work of people who put in hours enticing end users. How is that fair?
    It would entail RESTRAINT on the part of the auction organziers, to turn away submissions after the six-month cut-off. No last-minute multi-million dollar reserve names.

    Hi Rick,
    Mission accomplished! You (& your team) had to work hard over the years that we know how persistent were, as we have been following you. From a zero state you started your mission to let people know the value of domains. And where we reached today. You never stopped from telling us. It’s not an easy task! We are sure that one day Auction will be 100% successful like T.R.A.F.F.I.C.However, some more education required on auction & prior marketing of domains.
    Wishing you best of luck!

  4. Serendipity

    the last bids were very strong all things considered imo on the final .com’s
    great domains as they are. maybe reserves a little high
    I think just to say xxx,xxx reserve etc is good enough, leave a little guessing
    I hope in next Traffic to see pureplay .coms next time . The best of the best. That would be amazing
    may submit a few myself
    would you be able to give the link where you explain how to submit and how much to pay to submit please Rick?
