Above.com announces that the “Lead Generation Domain Auction” will be its second Themed Auction starting on March 17, 2014 and ending on April 16, 2014 at 12pm PT 2014.
“Themed auctions provide a better method of cost effectively selling domains to end-users,” says Victor Pitts, Director of Domain Services at Above.com. While not a new concept, themed auctions can be very effective in connecting the right domains to the right buyers en masse. Themed auctions are vastly more cost effective to promote and have a much greater chance reaching the intended buyer because the marketing message can be better concentrated on specific buyer groups.
Specific future Themed Auctions may be in partnership with industry representative organizations that help promote the auction to their audience. Potential partners would be trade conferences, industry forums, user groups, or any established trade organization. Partners influence domain selection, help promote the auction to their members, and receive a share of the auction commission.
The first Themed Auction of the year was launched at the “Affiliate Summit West” conference in Las Vegas.
The auction, suitably named “Affiliate Domain Auction”, ends on February 14, 2014 at 12:00pm PT.
Bidding is open at http://www.above.com/marketplace/affiliate.html.
