We are always glad to see the domain industry get coverage in non-domain publications.
The E-Commerce Times, just published a story discussing the value of buying a good domain name, highlighting the purchase of Bobblehead.com and Bobbleheads.com last year.
According to the story both domains were purchased by Warren Royal, last year at Sedo.com for $29,112 and $36,000, respectively.
The story notes:
Mr. Royal is quoting as saying “””the domain purchases, he said, likely will pay themselves in less than a year… and I have already turned down an offer of more than $300,000 for the bobbleheads.com domain.””
It is a nice story about the domain aftermarket, and the power of a brandable domain. Sedo and Jeremiah Johnston, its chief operating officer, are widely quoted. Jeremiah also serves as President of the Internet Commerce Association.
Congrats to all.
