This is going to be a short and rather random post but for some reason, I’ve always liked Geo domain names.
I don’t know why but I always feel like a business could use a domain name that’s specifically targeted towards their location. All you have to do is walk around your town or any busy area and you will run across a business using a geo type domain name.
It could be the entire city in the domain or an acronym of the city.
Keep in mind, I am not talking about category killer type domains like Manhattan.com. You should obviously know that no matter what, those have HUGE value. They can be developed into powerful internet real estate.
The domains that seem to always fall through the cracks and are undervalued would be domains such as:
These are known as City + Service domains and I LOVE THEM.
We’ve had a few sales with GEO’s and I am always looking to buy them. One of the geo sales we talk about here. The sale was through outbound marketing for a popular city and highly profitable service.
When looking for Geo domains, there are certain criteria we look for such as:
- City population
- What service the domain is geared for
- Is the business likely to have an online presence
- The pattern of the domain (City+Domain vs Domain+City)
And here is a quick tip…
Just because the Domain+City pattern may sound weird (they usual do), it may still have buyers.
