When is it and what categories ?
We have not got any themed auctions planned.
We will have a .co auction at some point but there are no dates confirmed as yet.
The next premium auction is 16th September.
If anyone has any good generic/keyword names please email them to me firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any suggestions for a themed auction I can always put this forward to marketing.
i don't know who accepts/declines domains onto your premium auctions but they need educating...i was declined a premium auction birth for something that was a singular generic item,in a very popular and profitable niche with over 20k searches per month (local),i was declined with a £900 reserve and i sold it last week for ten times that number....What was labour's slogan...."education" , "education" , "education" ,sedo's lack of knowledge,lack of web design and apathy will drive it to extinction
good luck you have 1and1 to fall back on :shock:
It maybe that the reserve was to high even though it was an excellent name.
Low reserves are needed to stimulate bids in an auction. The reserve price is not the same as the value of the domain.
The domain was probably better suited to direct brokerage rather than trying to sell it in an auction.
We can only add what we think will sell.
thank you for the reply/email joanna...
i used to respect sedo ,i don't know if it has lost it's mojo/ pulling power,i had manager listed on there....it fluffed at £1k and i had about thirty emails afterwards that must have looked through the whois register and contacted me...is it the user interface the application to join ?? i know when i am accepted onto the premium auction i email thousands of companies relating to that domain telling them of the upcoming auction...i sold it without paying sedo commission
how many are you losing,hundreds....thousands.....
Judging by the recent auctions, I'd say this was a good move, assuming you are being more vigilant. However, if this was the case, why not just suggest a 900 starting price?
as anybody else had this before:
i applied for a premium auction with a domain,and it was refused because the reserve was to high at say £900 and it stated £500 would be more appropriate,o.k you apply again the following month with a £500 reserve and it's still refused ?
you have to love em'
anyone auctioning quality domains with sedo must be nuts
they want soppy reserves and the auctions are hidden, yeah right
no exposure on homepage and you have to drill down to market activity, more often than not the block of closing soon ones, is weeks out of date. we have mentioned this many times. up until a few days ago it was still showing domains weeks old
sedo is a reseller playground, more often than not you will get reseller prices
if you have top tier domains use top auctions like domainfest, traffic or private sale, brokering
sell avergae stuff on forums or good ones if you need cash quick
i made mistake couple of times of selling too low on sedo, and that was when there was more expoisure on homepage
now? you gotta be kidding
I have investigated this and the domain in question was entered into the online retail auction in June. Unfortunately the domain did not sell. We therefore could not add it to the auction again for more than the highest bid as a reserve.
Please respond to my private email so I can help you further.
wasn't pendant joanna.....
