Well for the most part “Black Friday” has come and gone for another year and well I was just thinking about things. I was just wondering how many domainers out there chose to watch for drops and there auctions instead of go shopping? I mean I honestly did both via phone but just curious about the amount of interest there was for dropping names.
Which brings me to a very interesting question “Do holidays impact domain drops?” I mean do you see a decrease in the competition or do you see less attention towards the process. Another interesting equation is if you have an auction ending on a holiday do you see it going more in your favor because perhaps the other bidders are busy with the holiday spirit etc?
Just some thought provoking questions and to which I have no answers. I have been domaining for about 2 years and honestly I’m not sure how holidays impact things on my game plans as of yet but it’s a question I would love to pose to any domainer who does this for a living and has some insider information etc.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and filled there stomach with as much as humanly possible. I know I did and was about worthless for the rest of the day. Then the females of my family proceeded to drag me out for “Black Friday Shopping” or as most men call it hell day heh. They used me as a bulldozer of sorts carving a pathway to the discounted items etc. I find it so interesting that people go so crazy for a few dollars off items.
Honestly I came to a great conclusion while doing this shopping and it was something that makes perfect sense to me. If you could see the bidders of domain auctions in the real physical sense it would be very similar to black friday shoppers….carving there way to discounted items…..in the hopes of saving a few bucks and/or passing it on for a few extra bucks as a reseller. Anyway I rambled on enough but my best wishes to you and your families and have a safe weekend.
Keep and eye out for Cyber Monday rumor is best buy has some great deals
