Affiliate Summit / Moniker Auction List Released

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Aftermarket, Events

AFF SummitAffiliate Summit and Moniker have released the downloadable list for their upcoming domain name auction to be held July 9 in Miami, Florida. Moniker will be trimming down the list from 2000 domains to 150 to be featured in the live event. A list of rules and instructions as well as a preview of the featured domains can be found on Monikers site

This is the first time Affiliate Summit had partnered with Moniker for a domain auction event. Moniker has been branching out with their live events to places other than domain shows with the goal of attracting more “end-user” buying in the domain space. Other events have included Internext, an adult webmaster show, and the Casino Affiliate Convention. WebmasterWorlds PubCon in LasVegas will also feature a Moniker domain auction.

Bids haven’t seemed as heavy at these events as they are at Domainer-oriented shows such as TRAFFIC, but this is still a very early time in this developing market. Most domainers know what they are buying and tend to be more long term investment minded in their domain purchases, while I believe the affiliate/webmaster crowd are more interested in immediate ROI. These are the guys afterall who build and develop sites and can get them pumped up with traffic quite quickly. However, with the mix of people at these events, including major corporations, there is bound to be more publicity and more marketing being done to bring in a larger pool of buyers to the domain aftermarket in general.

moniker auctionI think we’ll see more activity in these niche market live domain auctions over time and as they are actively promoted. I’ve been to Affiliate Summit and it attracts a very large audience of affiliate marketing pros, internet entrepreneurs and ecommerce companies. It’s a good show for domainers to go to as well to better understand the affiliate marketing side of things. This first-time event should be an interesting guage to what the future of niche live domain auctions holds. I personally have a few domains on the list, so I wait with bated breath. Past Affiliate Summit events have sold out, so if you are interested in attending the show and bidding register today for the show here and raise those paddles high !
