Here’s a little strategic tip when you find an upcoming expired domain for auction that you’re interested in. I’m sure I’ve said this a while ago but it is worth mentioning again. If you are searching the upcoming expired auctions by keyword and you find a domain you like that has zero bids and you think this is a domain that other people would value, you should wait until 1 minute before the domain goes off the board (we’re talking about Namejet here) to place your bid. Here’s something I saw very recently. I found a domain that I wanted and it was going off the board in 15 days. I was going to follow my strategy so I did not bid on it. On the second to last day before it went off the board someone else found the domain and placed a bid on it. A lot of people sort through domains that have bids so once there’s 1 bid on a domain it appears on many people’s radar. The domain closed with over 20 bidders. Some people like the convenience of placing a bid right now and not having to remember they need to place that bid at a certain day and time. I personally prefer to wait until the last minute where there may be no other bidders (or 2 to 3 bidders max) on the domain. Regardless of who winds up with the domain now, they will be paying more because of that first bidder. Here’s today’s list…

My Top Picks – brandable domain which is easy to remember. If I did exports I’d buy this for myself as a late Christmas present. – this is a messenger program. Could also stand for internet marketing bot. – if the ever release a Playstation and they brand it as Playstation Zero then you’d be sitting on a goldmine. – huge name for a legal company to buy. – growing up I collected sports cards and comics. I tried coins and stamps and it wasn’t for me. But this is a great domain for those that do collect stamps. – good name for a company in the child education niche. Domain name is also 16 years old. When I pick up an older domain I use that as a selling point to people and it can be a pretty effective selling point. – nice brandable domain. Doesn’t hurt that it is a 17 year old domain also.

My Top Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders – outsourcing gets all the hoopla but it’s forgotten brother insourcing is around too. – maybe something to do with airlines. – lots of people send gift baskets or fruit platters but what people really want is cookies. – lots of people selling article writing services online nowadays since people are beginning to believe content is king and quick SEO is dead. – it’s the name of an iPad app as well as being a

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000) – great name if you sell parts. I imagine selling parts would be a pain in the rear since there’s so many of them and lots of them look similar, you better have a good inventory system.
