What Should I Do Next?

Recently, a domain owner received a $5,000 offer from a Chinese broker looking to acquire a domain on behalf of a client. With very little in the way of negotiations, the figure cited has increased to $30,000.

The domain owner is inexperienced when it comes to domain name sales, so they are asking for advice on what to do next. After a $30,000 offer, what would your next step be?

Inflation: Should We Increase Prices?

Around the world, rapid inflation is rife. According to Statista, inflation in the US hit 8.5% in March 2022, a 5.9% rise compared with March 2021. With the cost of living increasing, should aftermarket domain prices increase, too?

At least one domain investor has considered doing this and is asking other domainers whether this is something they’ve considered, too.

Did I Overpay After a Bidding War?

Many domain investors have experienced this. You find a domain at auction, you like the name, and you get drawn into a bidding war during the auction, resulting in a blown budget and perhaps a tinge of regret about overpaying.

One domainer has asked for opinions on whether they overpaid for a finance-related domain name after a bidding war that brought the name from $1,000 to $2,900. Do you get drawn into bidding wars?
