Domain Enquiries

As we move into July 2021 i can see many more domain enquiries coming in on a daily basis but we still have many people that time waste and promice things which never happen ! I recently had a enquiry for one domain by 4 brokers all wanting a price which I gave then they disappear saying the client doesn’t have the budget thats fine then he won’t have the domain someone else will have it 🙂

The CCTLD market is red hot and I can see most if the good domains will end up in the hands of people that undertstand having a good domain is important the others will left behind running on the wrong extensions killing the brand they own. If you operate in the UK you need to own a co.uk

Please if you contact me wanting to buy a domain don’t mess me around as if you do the price will be much higher when you come back after making that mistake.

The Power of a Premium Domain Name

Peter Coppinger, co-founder and CEO at Teamwork talking about the acquisition of the domain name Teamwork.com and how this decision changed his company forever.

Video summary:
– Peter made a $100k offer to the owner of Teamwork.com.
– The owner replied: – low offer? No thanks, I’d consider 675K –
– Peter accepted the offer and bought the domain name.
– He launched the domain name in 2014. It paid for itself in only 1 year, igniting the company with an explosion in growth.

Why?
Because customers Trust companies with Premium domains. A Premium domain name transmits Authority, Credibility and Leadership. Is Memorable, brings Attention, Visibility and enhances your brand… while appreciates its value over time.

In one single operation.

ESN.CO.UK – SOLD

I have sold ESN.co.uk which is now off the market for ever sold for £20,000 as I said before 3 letter domains should be on average this price the better ones should be high £xx,xxx to £xxx,xxx I had many offers on this domain but its a great name so didnt sell unless I had the right offer.

You can see the sale was published in all the main domain news as too many people dont publish sales and they need to. I hold some of the best co.uk domain names which i have invested in for many years and i simply will not sell them unless the offer is right we are living in a digital real estate now.

The online world continues to grow

As we move onto the end of October you can see more small and large businesses moving online with lots of local lockdowns happening people just dont want to go to the shops. I find most men are happy to shop online and only go shopping if they really want to see something like a phone/watch etc

I have found many retail shops with no online presence apart from maybe a facebook page or instagram it just shocks me really its 2020 everyone should at least have a domain name with your own presence.

We understand not everyone can afford a premium domain name but who wants your competitors having it ? Its one of the best marketing tools you can ever own !

When some companies using a poor domain are happy to blow £XXX,XXX per month of google ads when they should own the best domain name !

As we move forward domain name values are increasing and once its off the market you won’t have a chance again.

Secure the best domain name

There is no other asset or one-time strategic move that can fundamentally and so quickly impact the brand, credibility, revenue, success, and valuation of a company than the acquisition of its category and exact keyword match domain name, to the tune of tens- hundreds of millions. And to think that the acquisition is an appreciating asset. If you are a strategic leader, do not sleep on it. The case studies from your peers are real. Happy to discuss with anyone who I can help this is not a free service.

Remote Working

Since the last few months it’s been a rush for lots of companies to rush to get the company online and running remote. I have been saying this for years and years advising clients you need to make sure you are prepared for the future the online world is here to stay and will keep growing…

Lots of people have never been allowed to work remote but since everything has happened this is now the new normal. This is now change for me its my life style and that’s what I enjoy being stuck in a office is not the life I want !

I find most people working from home or remote anywhere are far more productive with lots more people now online the internet is getting busy people wanting to start new ventures and small to large companies looking to invest in the online space the UK is behind the USA.

.COM / CO.UK domain name

when it comes to owning a domain name in the UK the co.uk should be your first choice if you only trade or do business in the UK if your world wide then secure the .COM but you might find it will be hard to secure both with the power of a domain name you can brand better and have a ongoing marketing platform.

The best investment you can have is the domain name some companies drop millions on CPC per month but don’t have a decent domain don’t miss out before the domain you want is SOLD they only normally get sold once then you will have lost out.

Best Marketing Investment

The reason a super premium .Com or co.uk domain name is the best marketing investment is because it’s relatively inexpensive to get started, and it keeps going up in value by doing nothing; then you can index your website and domain in Google and elsewhere forever with disproportionately high ranking.

Plus they’re memorable unlike lesser domains; all of which adds perpetual free customers to your ever rising investment.
