Let’s Face It; Sedo.com Generic .Me Auction, It Was A Bust

The Sedo.com Generic .Me domain name auction that concluded yesterday was, well there is no other way to say it, a bust.

Out of the 190 domain names for sale only 8 domain names sold and the vast majority never even got a bid.

The auction was run in conjunction with Brands-and-Jingles whose principal Mark Kychma told had to say:

“The result are very disappointing – Brands-and-Jingles is regularly selling .ME names in the range $5k-$50k.”

“This auction failed to recognize the value of some great names like implement.me or stereotype.me. ”

“I guess we just didn’t manage to get the [right] buyers for some yet unknown reasons.”

Here are the final bids from yesterday’s auction:

    “Please don’t reply anymore” –
    If me deciding to have a little fun with a bottom feeder hack – who has obviously made some wrong turns – gets me some kind of award – then I greatfully accept.

    “gets me some kind of award – then I greatfully accept.”

    It does, so commemorate your new award with a jaunty song,
    and feel intense pride in your heart…

    Oh, and whoever is helping you to read and spell today, might
    want to know that “greatfully” is spelled “gratefully”.. :)

  3. BrianWick says

    As the sayin goes – when you are (or your) backed against the wall – change subject matter and correct the spelling – good god loser

    Sedo’s Great Names has just finished. Out of 228, about 30 met the reserve prices and the total take is about 30k. This is like 10% of all names and about 10% of what one would expect from Sedo’s events.

    It is either the summer or something fundamentally wrong with the market/marketing.

    The glory days of Great Domains are long gone i’m afraid.
    It’s a shame, as GD really were a powerhouse in the late
    90’s, but now they’re like a dollar store, and the GD “experts”
    know as much about domains as a rock at the bottom of
    the ocean…

    No, the problem is Sedo. Whoever they have picking the names for these auctions, needs to be removed, they’ve been doing a horrible job for awhile now. With the amount of domains people are submitting, they should be pick nothing but winners, at least a high percentage.
