Poll: Should I Keep the Weekly Brokerage Listings?


For the last few months (with the exception of a few weeks), I have posted new exclusive domain listings from domain brokers and various brokerages. It seems that there are some people who dislike seeing these posts, although there are many who have expressed appreciation at seeing some of these listings.

It’s a bit of a pain to email these people weekly to get new listings, so I wouldn’t mind discontinuing these posts, especially if you aren’t benefitting and/or dislike seeing these types of posts.

I will put it in your hands. Would you like me to keep posting weekly brokerage listings?

    I think those posts are interesting, but do not expect I would miss them if you stopped posting.

      Thanks for the comment. The poll didn’t show up for some reason, but I added it again.

    If they don’t want to email you the names why should you post them? I say drop it

      Some of the brokers email them regularly without asking, but some need a reminder email. It would be a bit silly to post 3 or 4 names, so I fell obligated to email a reminder so the listing is more full.

      I agree with Shane this one time. Why in the world should you have to remind them that you are going to post their names free of commission on your site that has thousands of eyeballs. There probably isn’t that many people that read your blog that can afford those names but you never know it only takes one to pull the trigger.

    Its always good to see names and see what the market is as one of the indicators IMO.

    Lot of overpriced names but still a good indication of the market and who is selling the name.

    Plus it brings more exposure and more eyeballs for the broker/seller.

    I say keep it

    Keep it…..useful information……

    Those listings are useless mostly high priced. Why don’t you help the domainers if you really want to help instead of helping brokers to sell the ridiculously priced domains? Instead, ask the readers to post their couple of best domains every week that are on sale. I bought a few like that right here when you offered the readers to post their domains.

      Unfortunately, whenever I offer people the chance to list their names, it turns into a sh*t show. People submit crappy names, visitors hit the dislike button, people get offended and defensive, and it’s not fun to watch.

      It’s like a car accident that people gawk at.

    Imo, just by looking at those weekly high priced domains, we don’t really get the ‘feel’ of the market condition. Real feel lies in looking at the prices of below $5K domains, that is what makes our industry for the most part. Also, you can put a condition (like last time) that you will list only names that are priced to sell whereas you can’t control the prices when you simply get the list from the brokers. Just my 2 cents.

    Most of the names are end user pricing, so I think the wrong market is being addressed through blog. I understand that some of your posts have resulted in sales, but for the most part the audience is not here.

    I tend to get the feeling that those high-priced offerings are shooting above the heads of your readers. However, the listings do add some variety to the blog.

    Post whatever you can, by no means go out of your way to get brokers to send names though. Time is also precious, use it wisely and hopefully they will too and email you.

    I would suspect that the post is pretty popular and I know I have had inquiries through my posting here. I’m with Josh regarding your time investment and perhaps this post will shake up some brokers to post their better names here without prodding. I find this weekly post unique to ElliotsBlog and really appreciate it. I know I’ll find a great name and deal here suitable for me soon. Keep up the great work Elliot!
