Hello, happy Friday, and welcome to my weekly domain investing news roundup. I can never really figure out what to write in this first sections so I thought I’d spend a few sentences talking about the first story on my list.
This week Elliot wrote a good article that referenced a Tweet from Rick Schwartz about the problem with having a BIN + Make Offer option on a landing page. I think Rick made a really good point here and am glad that Elliot wrote a post dedicated to it. Why would anyone take your BIN price seriously if you make it clear that you’re willing to consider other offers?
To me, a landing page with BIN + Make Offer is more like a page that says, “Looking for $x or best offer,” it takes all the wind out of your sales when it comes to really standing behind the price.
Okay, there’s a little commentary from me on the news, now let’s get to the good stuff. Below are the stories from the domain investing world that caught my eye this week, enjoy!
