.WS emoji domains certainly had a few good runs up the hill over at NameJet, producing a handful of $500+ emoji domain sales.
There was great anticipation for notable sales to be made in NameJet’s final lot of Premium .WS Emoji Domain Auctions.
At the time of this writing, all .WS emoji domain auctions have ended their Public Auction with less than stellar results (in my opinion).
I returned from lunch yesterday shocked to discover 🛩.ws had not meet its reserve with minutes remaining in public auction.
After all, 🛩.ws had 6 bidders cast 9 bids, yet the auction closed at $232, well below the reserve range of between $501 and $1000.
🌽.ws closed at a $95, which is “steal of a deal” pricing for single .WS emoji domains.
The final 4 .WS emoji domain auctions didn’t make it beyond their minimum bids despite having multiple bidders of 3 or more in some cases.
With less than stellar results, one must objectively ask the following questions:
- Was this lot of emoji domains simply not popular?
- Could it have been reserve pricing?
- Are emoji domains losing steam, or already lost their steam?
- Should NameJet consider featured emoji domain auctions in the near future?
- Where do emoji domain auctions go from here?
These are simply a few questions that pop into my mind that are likely to be answered in the coming weeks and months.
I’m most interested in discovering whether or not NameJet continues to offer emoji domain auctions as a feature section, or does they fizzle off the radar never to return again.
I can’t pretend to know the answer or the factors in which NameJet applies to determining whether or not a featured auction is successful.
Emoji domain investors will certainly want to keep their eyes peeled and ears to the ground to see and hear what’s next for emoji domain auctions at NameJet.
