It seems that I've been selling my LLLL .ca domain names too cheap, from $2000 to $4999.

I see some recent LLLL .ca domain name sales reported on namebio, such as:

LOCA .ca $16,850 USD
PKWY .ca $5000 USD
DICO .ca $9999 USD
JOHN .ca $5000 USD
KEYA .ca $3000 USD
JANE .ca $25,000 USD
JOBS .ca $600,000 USD 2008
JOBS .ca $450,000 USD 2013 (Sedo)
PLAY .ca $34,000 USD
VANS .ca $25,000 USD
ZOOM .ca $22,100 USD
GOLD .ca $14,725 USD
AUTO .ca $10,334 2006
BCSA .ca $7500 USD
BEEP .ca $5000 USD
BESO .ca $1000 USD 2010


What notable sales figures have you had involving LLLL .ca domains, especially in the pronounceable CVCV pattern?
 
GOLD .ca $14,725 USD

I think I bid higher than that on that domain a while back

I do well with LLLL, I own a couple hundred of them but not all of them are money makers, you have to sit on them for quite a while to get a decent sale.
 
I’m not sure when gold.ca sold for that price but that’s definitely dirt cheap for that one.
 
Jane.ca is still not resolving
 
The majority of those domains above are dirt cheap. If you own thousands of LLLL maybe you’re forced to sell in $2,000-$4,999.

I think most of us are thinking that this will be a cannabis website.

This is what happens when the owners are big cannabis users and can’t keep enough product in stock to get the site up and running, :)
 
I sold aces.ca a few years back for low 4 figures. Most definitely my most regrettable sale now that I look back at it. You live and learn.
 
I haven’t sold many LLLL to be honest. I can’t recall the last one….I’ve had some decent luck with LLL’s.

I got 2 offers tonight for 2 different 4L .ca cvcv domains.

One of them seems to be from a big entity launching a new brand globally.
 
A couple of those LLLL transactions listed are mine. I sold another one for $10K last month as well, it was in the pattern VCVV.

If it's a word, don't sell cheap. If its not a word, but a decently memorable CVCV then I'd say shoot for at least $25K. BEST OF LUCK!

I actually don’t know the details but I know that one of the jobs is yours. If you don’t mind, fill us all in.

BTW, I expect a long Rob detailed informative post. :)
 
I was about to buy Jobs.ca but Shaun Pilfold really wanted in on it, so we bought it together in 2008 - then ended up buying a bunch of other domains together as well. We had two groupings of domains, job related domains including Jobs.ca and Resumes.ca, and a bunch of geo/city related domains. After Shaun and I parted business ways several years later, Shaun expressed interest in the job names and I wanted the geo names. So we split the domains up and they were pretty evenly split into two groups based on what we paid for the domains. We both got what we wanted. Shaun then sold Jobs in 2013.

I hope that was brief yet detailed. :)
 
Apart from words and pronounceable variations of letters, is there a sequence of four letters that is generally of higher value?

Example: CVCV, CVVV, VVCV, VVVC
 
some would say repeating letters adds additional value, but I'm not so sure that's based in reality. I'd argue that the pronouncibility and memorability is a higher factor than the pattern.

So when Shaun sold it in 2013 it wasn’t just a domain right? Was it a website also?

I’m not sure why people still talk about CVCV etc. The only people who talk that way are domainers and if you’re trying to sell to other domainers. It’s like Rob said. Words is where the money is. Acronyms do well also but whether pronounceable or not whether it has vowels or not has no relevance when you’re selling to end users.

It was a website, but I don’t think the new owners got the website code, they would have used their own existing technology since they were already established themselves, but I’m not 100% sure about that. Same as when I sold CreditCards, there was an existing site I had that was actually #1 in google search results, but I didn’t give them the code or database as part of the sale.
 
Ok thanks for clarifying because I never knew whether they sold so high at the time because they were websites.
