Sedo's front page is reporting that Simple.co.uk just sold for US$35,000. Pretty good!
Interesting observation: the new owner is the holder of multiple trademarks of the word "simple".
There's been some nice prices over the past couple of days, even a dot com for £350,000. Are you calling the buyer simple bb99? haha
I suppose the moral of the story is that, even with a big fat TM on it, if the domain is generic and it's being put to fair use... you can just about name your price.
I expect the sale was a welcome Christmas bonus for Mr T.
I am selling 'simpleness.co.uk' for 100 quid
I disagree with you all on this one
I have sold a number of .co.uk's for higher sums than this.
It is always very hard to decide what approach to take because each customer is very different.
1, Some will sue if the price is to high.
2, Some are taking the piss.
3, Some will negotiate (but how high do you push)
4, Some will pay what ever the price (so don't unprice a domain name if you have a customer like this)
With the 1000's of .co.uk's, .com's and others and now I have a number of .eu's (will have to wait until all my paper work with the eu registry has been processed before i tell you what i got, but it involved registring 100's of trademarks), with all the emails i get on a daily basis and all the negotiations i under take i have become a bit of an expert on the human psyche coupled with domain names sales and acquisitions.
I am looking at using this knowledge to help others.
1, I will negotiate a sale or acquisition for a price
2, I am thinking of running a one day course and sharing my knowledge.
Any points of view would be appreciated
Are you considering offering yourself as an affiliate to domain sellers? it's a concept I thought would already be in motion but I haven't seen anybody do that yet. Obviously that's going a bit further than just offering yourself as a negotiator, more into actively selling for others for a cut.
Welcome to the forum, and congratulations with all of your sales.
