Discussion in 'Domain Appraisals' started by kass, Dec 25, 2008.
I'm curious to hear what you think about it?
seems a good domain for covent garden blog...
A blog!! What are you on crack?! lol...
Great name, travel, accommodation, restaurants...
Kass is this your domain?
I like it but I wouldn't have bought it at that price.
The truth is coventgarden may be famous and a nice place, but it's small.
There are bars, restaurants and shops... but I think it's difficult to make money out of this name?
It might get high in the search engines for the name, but not sure how it can be developed to bring in cash to pay off the purchase price?
Then weigh it up against developing a free to reg name for th area. Investment in either will most likely bring in the a similar amount.
I do like the name though and it could be a nice little site, I'm just going off names that sell in this range with no obvious commercial angle.
Just my opinion, I may be way off here.
I don't see why you would pay 5k for this and if i did i would want the .co.uk thrown in.
Covent garden is one of my favourite places in London but athough famous and reasonably busy it is only small.
I would concentrate on letting agents for property in that area, 12k per month for a 5 bed house : check this >>> Houses For Rent Covent Garden - propertyfinder.com
Imagine the commission :shock:
Hence the cheap price it recently sold for then!!
A tourism and travel blog I should say... but if you want to offer something, still might be a good one for travel products..
Thanks guys the site will be live in the next 1-2 months, i will make money using ticket switch, laterooms, londonpass, livebookings affiliate programs, you can perview the site look and layout with the images below and let me know what you think please etc
Business Shop Page
Coventgarden.com will work the same way as prizedraws.com where londoners can post reviews on businesses and upload pics and videos about the area for points to enter weekly prize draws offered by local covent garden businesses like win a dinner for 2 at La Porte des Indes restaurant.
Also their will be an ecommece shop section where local market and shop owners can sell their products on coventgarden.com it will work the same way as sitepoint where sellers will buy credit then use their own paypal account for buyers to buy their products so it will be 1 credit for each item sold that way sellers get paid direct and dont need to worry about me running off with their money lol.
Let me know what you think of the look and layout, thank you.
