I’ve always found the holidays to be an interesting time for domain investors. There always seems to be less bidding activity on popular aftermarket sites like NameJet, Go Daddy, etc. which often means that some lucky investors can add a few solid names to their portfolio with a little less competition than usual.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m one of those investors and historically I’ve had good luck buying names over the holidays. Of course it’s always a balancing act since the holidays are the best time for me to unplug and get some R&R.
Right now I’m literally out in the middle of the Canadian Rockies in a small town called Golden, BC, and on Monday I’m headed to Banff which is just over the border in Alberta. The Internet connecting is pretty darn slow so I’m not sure if I’ll be bidding as much as usual but I’ll still likely buy a few names while I’m up here.
I’ll likely be buying two-word .COMs, and I’ve moved away from keyword .COMs so I’ll likely be buying brandable domains.
What about you? Are you planning on buying any names over the holidays? If so what kind of names are you looking to buy and what’s your go-to marketplace?
