Hi everyone, I noticed a drop in my parked domains views since the beginning of June.
I'm wondering when should I expect more "actions" (means views, price requests, offers, sales).

I guess it's from January till May and September/December.

But you probably know already better than me ;)

So that's the purpose of this poll!

Let's find out together :)

Hi

you shouldn't be expecting.
just accept what is...

otherwise, you'll be disappointed when expectations aren't reached.

Well, I like to learn from insights and data.

For example, if everyone's sales, views, and offers are down mostly in the summer months, it's just a confirmation of my thoughts. But my thoughts without data mean nothing. Instead, when sharing information with other people, I can make some predictions based on real facts.

This is what every business owner should do.

Imho...

Hi

if....
everyone owned the same names and all were at same price, then it would be factual

but, since that is impossible, then it can't be factual.

also, everyone who participates here, doesn't represent all sellers who don't post here.

additionally, one would have to look at cumulative sales over a period of years, to say which particular month or months, they had the most profitable sale.
from that perspective, every month could be chosen, depending on volume of participants in a poll.

still, if you want to confirm, based on such a tiny fraction of representation, feel free to do so.

Good Luck!

wow January is big enough

Wanna know the details for that month, like the marketplace is same like another months
Or you doing some outbound in the new year, etc
 
Our portfolio size isn't very large, it varies between 100-500 domains, but we seem to do the best near the end of the year. The last 2 years we've sold a domain on December 31 or close to it.

Voted all 12 months since it's wholly dependent on the type of domain name. There are domain names for every single day of the year. You can monetise domain names on ANY given day including Sundays.

Maybe this is to simple and it is only one year (last 12 months) but statistically it should be representable.

According to Namebio January, May and December is the best months (based on number of names sold).

I would agree and say it makes sense even though there always be outlier portfolio owners argue different.

Where can I see these stats?

It could be interesting to compare the same months volume of the previous years too

Because of positive thinking :$:

Agreed. But you know that for 99% of domainers, there is no profitable month. Based on that fact, the 'none' month option would reflect reality and probably help some leave for greener pastures :giggle:

How can you answer a question with so few parameters? What's profit? What's a domainer? Are we going back to 1995 or only the past ten years, or past five years, or the past year? Are we talking views, price requests, offers, sales at the same time? Which countries? Which languages? Which types of domain name? Which extensions? Now breath in......

I have voted but honestly I had no sales until today, going on the 3rd year, will see how it develops.
As i mentioned in my first replies on this forum if I don't get my money back from domain investments i will destroy this biz.

Depending if you need to make some cash or spend cash, I would say that generally, December is the month that we have to make a financial decision about taxes. More income or more expenses? I already made 25,000$ USD the last day of a year (December 31st) just because somebody needed to spend money before the end of the year for taxes. He needed to put some expenses in his accounting.

Nothing will happen without work, so it isn't a monthly measurement, but the measurement of effort is likely when actually made effort rather than just twiddling thumbs thinking deserving of a sale. Most don't hold enough to show a pattern.

From what I know, companies usually are tasked to spend a bunch of remaining money before the end of their fiscal year so it would make sense that late fall and winter are the best months.
