Is Frank getting the beers in?
Nice sale if it was still you who owned it
It sold for $20k in 2012 apparently. Not such a good deal if it was the same owner.
Depends. The exchange rate means $20k is £13.2k so possibly a ~£3k loss, but if they made >£3k while owning it, it's a potential gain. Who knows.
I remember him posting about it at some point, I thought it was later in 2013 when he got it but, having had a look at old posts, he was in possession of it in Oct 2012, I'm sure he'll let us know either way.
Terrible sale. Worth a heck of a lot more than this.
I'm not a big fan of the domain personally. It's too specific. You seldom get companies solely making wardrobes without additional bedroom or furniture in general. It would make no sense to brand yourself as Wardrobes.com unless you solely made wardrobes. Sure it might have worked to generate sales a few years ago but as we all know, that is no longer the case.
I think this is just one of those names that look good as it's a product everyone knows/has but in reality, it's extremely poor as a brand name and useless for an SEO play.
Agree. Too specific to spend big money on.
beds.com would be different, but wardrobes seem like a purchase you'd make with other furniture rather than alone.
$20k in 2012, never really understood why he bought it.
In 2012 wardrobes.org.uk might have fetched $20k, let alone the .com. I'm sure it was a good price back then.
