Domain Madness Auction Results

by Chad Kettner in Categories: Domain Sales

DomainConsultant.com‘s “Domain Madness” auction has come to a close with nearly $150,000 worth of domains being sold – and now it’s time for everybody who participated in the Domain Madness Contest to tally their scores for a chance to win $1000.

Initially, 16 domains met their reserves and were sold at the live event. However, thanks to a new strategy nine more domains were sold during the post auction phase.

“After the auction we raised the prices on the remaining names and would do so at least two more times before it was all said and done,” explained Adam Strong of DomainConsultant.com. “The idea is to de-motivate the cherry-picker, forcing them into earlier decisions or pay more later.

The result is that several names were sold above the reserve in the post auction phase – a first for us and perhaps for the sellers as well. We now intend to make this ‘rising’ scale standard procedure in all upcoming auctions – including the GEO auction to be held at the end of April in San Diego.”

Loco.com (“crazy” in Spanish) was the highest sale, closing at $55,500, ahead of Stenography.com for $15,000, ePills.com for $9000, IceSkating.net for $7000, and Antiseptic.com for $6000.
