Would appreciate some oppinions on potential value of CoachHire dot net
Any opinions would be most welcome.
Good sale potential, Don't think it's upto much for developing.
I have busandcoachhire co.uk but never done anything with it apart from a minisite and never made much on that via adsense.
i have problems ranking .net's i don't know it's just me but they are very stubborn.
i would probably put a directory on there and see what happens.
thank's so far
Has anybody got any ideas regarding number of coach hire companies in the world ? I know it's a big ask but I don't have the figures.
Sorry missed the .net bit. I'm not a fan of that extension but then Im not interested in anything besides co uk and com.
No, nets ok, i've always done well with nets on google, bouncycastles.net was No 1 for a long time.
co.uk is offers over 5k on sedo and .com is not for sale.
saying that there only just over a million searches for "bouncy castles" i could get any extension to the top of google with very little effort if there was only that amount in front of me,try getting "coach hire" through all the traffic in google for that term.
that's why i don't mind an unpopular extension in niche markets because there are very little competition and a greater chance of success.
there might be offers over £5k for the co.uk on sedo but that is why it is sitting there and not sold.
I was looking for an overall opinion on the .net value, I have had a couple of fair offers, don't forget end users arn't only concerned in page rank, branding is a major factor and the .net is international. I've no doubt the co.uk is worth far in excess of 5k (I've known companies spend more than that on lunch) the prestige alone in the UK is enormous, look at the money spent on vehicle signage and 5k is a snip. Imagine in real world advertising just having to remember coachhire instead of rpcdobcoaches or whatever. If I were a coach company my major priority would be to own coach or coaches or coachhire or something with such prestige value.
Incidently, it can take 10 years to sell a good domain, that doesn't necessarily mean it's got a low value, anyone can give things away for free.
The futures bright you've just got to remain focused.
i'm not saying it hasn't got value because it has, a generic domain and for that it is highly sought after,with my experience and many on these boards don't rank .net's ,americans think better of them than brits and i have huffed and puffed and still couldn't rank them,but you are right if a company with deep pockets would come along they would be delighted with it and they could happily use the domain for branding too.
all the best with it whatever you decide to do with it
