Every new year brings along expectations of success and aspirations of beating the results of the year that ended. It's a natural approach, as we are a species that thrives with abundant optimism.
Last year brought us a global pandemic that rebooted the economy in ways unforeseen, leading companies to re-invent the "work from home" paradigm and benefit from it.
Domain investors are facing a new system that utilizes online identity, brands, and—naturally—domain names. Domain marketplaces such as the Uni Market, Afternic, and others, have been reporting record volume of sales in 2020, and projections for this year are full of optimistic calculations.
While Covid-19 did send the economy in a spin, it also forced us to try new methods of taking brands to new levels. Many brick and mortar companies switched to offering digital goods and services, and the domain name market has been receiving the attention it deserved all along.
In other words, domain names are more needed now than ever before. Investors that have been following the trends realize that just like the real estate market, domains are needed to build on. Existing businesses are able to invest capital into domain names, as plenty of loan-taking opportunities have created an expansion of their cash flow.
The best part: When there's demand, prices rise, and chances are that 2021 will be a stellar year for domain investors that maximize their opportunity to sell domains on an expanded network led by GoDaddy companies such as Uniregistry and Afternic.
Here's what's going on in 2021:
Domains listed on the Uni Market are now presented to millions of eyeballs on the GoDaddy network, alongside Afternic. The system encourages the use of BIN (buy it now) prices that drive the ability of buyers to act spontaneously on a domain's availability with a price tag.
Domain investors have the opportunity to improve sales volume and total revenue, by setting higher prices to their domain portfolios.
Mass-editing tools at the Uni Market make setting or changing your BIN prices an easy task. At the same time, Uniregistry Brokers and Afternic sales professionals work in tandem to close deals maximizing one's return on investment.
Uniregistry, a GoDaddy brand, is adding new payment methods to its automated process, allowing an expanded number of payouts and additional currencies. It's also reducing the wait time for payouts to one day, along with lowering the payout threshold to all market related transactions.
Eventually, the Uni Market will give birth to the much-anticipated Afternic 2.0, integrating with it. That's exciting news for the registrants of millions of domains already on the Afternic and Uni Market platforms.
Most importantly, domains are appreciating in value due to the exposure that they receive by media coverage, leading to more demand for quality and availability. With the assistance of brokered deals at Uniregistry and the GoDaddy syndication network, domain investors are looking into a busy year as we're breaking away from the ill effects of the pandemic.
Conclusion: Take charge of your improved opportunities to sell domains on the Uni Market and Afternic, by setting BIN prices as the world begins its anticipated return to normal this year.
