  1. In this week's Top Topics, a domain investor reveals that they sold 133 domain names at Clubhouse in March. Elsewhere, we discuss the fixed price domain marketplace strategy and Sedo's Dave Evanson announces the $2 million sale of Angel.com.

    Also, a two-word .COM domain sale is announced and a reported five-figure typo domain sale leads to a minor redesign for a domain marketplace.


    I Sold 133 Domains at Clubhouse Last Month

    Founded around a year ago, Clubhouse is an audio-based social network that quickly grew into a phenomenon, especially within the business community. Unsurprisingly then, domain name groups started to pop up.

    More recently, domain name sales and auctions have become popular at Clubhouse. Here, @Robbie shares the fact that he sold 133 domain names at Clubhouse in March. These were wholesale, domainer to domainer deals, but it seems Clubhouse could be a useful option for liquidating domain names.

    What’s Your Fixed Price Strategy?

    Most of the leading domain name marketplaces allow you to offer domains for sale using either a “make offer” option or a “buy now” option. Some domain investors lean towards the “make offer” option exclusively, while others favor “buy now.”

    This domain investor switched from exclusively using “make offer” to “buy now” in January, and has been successful with the “buy now” option since then. Do you favor a fixed price strategy?

    Dave Evanson Sells Angel.com for $2 Million

    Sedo's senior broker @Dave Evanson has a history of closing high value deals for clients of the domain marketplace. His recent sales include Windfall.com, Triple.com for $220,000, and Zag.com for $450,000.

    We learn in this discussion that Evanson sold a $2 million domain in the past week. That domain name was Angel.com and it was acquired by Angel Studios, a crowdfunding platform for movie and TV. What do you think of the $2 million sales price?

    I Sold a 2 Word .COM for $10,000

    A domain investor has shared the story of a recent $10,000 sale. The domain, mentioned in this discussion, is a two-word e-commerce .COM domain, sold thanks to a GoDaddy broker that approached this investor on behalf of a client.

    The investor rejected an initial $500 offer, mentioning that the domain was part of a wider portfolio with a business plan in mind. Over a month later, the GoDaddy broker came back with an acceptable $10,000 offer.

    Did Lnvitation.com Sell for $20,156?

    It’s often easy to miss a typo in a domain name, so when lnvitation.com was reported as sold for $20,156 at an expiry auction, you may have considered it to be a steal for a one-word .COM domain. However, the name on sale was the typo Lnvitation.com rather than invitation.com.

    The apparent sale, which hasn’t been independently verified, has brought up a wider debate on domain name auction platform design, and whether domains listed for sale should be displayed in both upper and lower case. As a result of this discussion, one marketplace has made a design change.

    I guess I should definitely look at Clubhouse..

    With NFTs trending & exploding so much now, I've been interested in trying to sell what I have as a portfolio.

    Helpful read, thanks!
