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

easyexport.com.com – brandable domain which is easy to remember. If I did exports I’d buy this for myself as a late Christmas present.

imbot.com – this is a messenger program. Could also stand for internet marketing bot.

ps0.com – if the ever release a Playstation and they brand it as Playstation Zero then you’d be sitting on a goldmine.

malpractice.net – huge name for a legal company to buy.

collectstamps.com – 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.

writeABC.com – 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.

premierprops.com – nice brandable domain. Doesn’t hurt that it is a 17 year old domain also.

My Top Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders

insourcing.com – outsourcing gets all the hoopla but it’s forgotten brother insourcing is around too.

departs.com – maybe something to do with airlines.

sendcookies.com – lots of people send gift baskets or fruit platters but what people really want is cookies.

perfectarticles.com – lots of people selling article writing services online nowadays since people are beginning to believe content is king and quick SEO is dead.

ialo.com – it’s the name of an iPad app as well as being a 4L.com.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000)

partsstore.com – 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.
