Labeled as discuss in Brandable Domain Discussion, started by ThatNameGuy, Oct 2, 2019
Would luv to help/comment, but I parted company with the new gTLD domain market six months ago. I'm pretty good with names, at least that's what I'm told...winkwink.
Here's an example of a "catchy" domain I plan to register that was previously reg'd continually from 2000 to 2015, then dropped;
note the "wink" in "pink" .....catchy? I don't know, but i think so
Here's the real question, lets assume for a moment you just bought this domain and like me you think it's "catchy".How would you go about monetizing it? There seem to be a lot of "catchy" names just gathering dust with no real plan as to how to sell them. It seems if we're creative enough to reg/buy the names, we should be creative enough to sell them for a profit. Any ideas beyond the traditional, list them with the likes of Afternic, Sedo, Uniregistry etc. and hope and pray someone finds them?
And thanks for your reply to my reply.....sooooo much BS (coming from me). I noticed from your bio you're a young man of 54? I left that station almost 20 years ago, but I feel like a kid playing the domain game. It use to be "sex" would POP into my head dozens of times a day, now it's domains A doctor friend of mine from India has written a paper titled, "Laughter is Like a Mini Vacation". Basically he says, when you're laughing nothing hurts, and it's a type of euphoria sort of like an orgasm. He says Nirvana would be laughing during orgasm, but he doesn't know of anyone who has achieved that pinnacle
I like identitytheft.id. However, unless you know specifically how to monetize it or develop it, it's of little value. I mentioned when I first joined NP a couple of years ago, I loved all the new gTLD's because for me, they gave a domain a new dimension and added value....or so I thought. I owned domains like FreePizza.Today and Payday.Loans. "Catchy"....sure, but outside of you, me and domainers, few people understand them. One of the first domains like this I saw, PingPong.gives (a charity/benefit for Ping Pong), I thought, how cool Now keep in mind I was 70 years old young, and I'd named and ran dozens of businesses in my lifetime and a name like "Payday Loans" would have been a great name if I were to be in that business. I also owned a bunch of .golf domains that I thought were way cool, but when Donuts, the registry that owned the .golf extension reneged on working with me to sell their domains I decided it was time to throw in the towel. The very same thing happened with about a hundred .homes domains that I owned and still own, but when the registry for .homes, Dominion Domains, who are right here in my hometown wouldn't work with me, I lost all respect for this seriously screwed up industry
@ThatNameGuy , Thanks Alot for sharing your experience , And yes I agree with u that few people understand catchy names, Because I believe that every domainers have a Different view.
A E I O A.com
Why not A E I O YOU.com?....not sure what A E I O A means?
I know what is it pretty well. That's why i i posted here as 'catchy'. As you know, it represents the vowel listing pattern without U., ie only premium vowels a, e, i and o. Starts and ends with A. Very easy to remember and only 5L. Already received a couple of offers.
I like these 2 as well, quite catchy
LeafyReefy.com for a cannabis site
StealthSoldiers.com for a gaming site .
Some of my "catchy" domains are:
Be happy! "Light 'em if ya got em"
other than a little long, i like it. Sounds a little like "It's a Wonderful Life" my favorate movie of all time.
Yes, Agree - A Little Long. Thanks For The Comment.
JustCandy is pretty cool.
I really like PopTalk...it sounds like the Title for a TV show. but has other uses as well. Good Luck!
Here's my latest "catch"....6ixSticks.com. It sort of goes hand in hand with the brand 9Time™ in that it's a new game involving golf where you can use just "six" sticks/clubs. For anyone who follows golf, there's a company with a very "catchy" name; ShipSticks.com that advertises on TV that it ships golf clubs around the world cheaper, faster and safer than the airlines. They've carved out an interesting niche about 7-8 years ago, and they're hitting it out of the park.
You may want to consider picking up Squeekee.com that's available for reg fee. I just renewed one that I picked up this time last year;
HalfHash.com.....sort of sounds like HalfAss
Hash - a drug, illegal in many countries, made from the cannabis plant and usually smoked
Thanks for sharing!
Another of my favs...
