As we cross the halfway point of Q4, we have some exciting announcements to share! The first announcement is regarding Mineral.com. This domain name, assisted by one of our premium domain brokers, Hobi Michalec, was sold in the beginning of November. This particular sale is one of the most notable sales to date in Q4, as we were able to find the right buyer by leveraging and collaborating with our Flippa platform. Mineral.com was secured under our exclusivity agreement at the end of August. Hobi and our marketing team worked tirelessly in finding both the right offer and buyer for this particular asset. After 2 months of marketing Mineral.com, Hobi and the seller discussed other strategies for increasing exposure. Hobi recommended that the seller consider listing the asset on our Flippa platform. Listing on the platform allowed Hobi to continue his outbound marketing efforts while giving the domain name greater exposure through the Flippa marketplace. Mineral.com was listed in a no-reserve auction for 14 days, and after receiving 89 bids, the asset was successfully sold. The end result was a digital asset given significant exposure through broker and marketplace efforts, satisfying seller and buyer with a perfect sale.
With our ongoing commitment to being the entrepreneur’s marketplace, our team traveled in the first week of November to participate in the Web Summit in Dublin. At the conference, which boasted over 42,000 attendees from more than 134 countries, our team was able to meet and interact with venture capitalists, founders of startup companies, executives from Fortune 500 companies, and journalists from all over the world. Here are some of the highlights:
- A flock of sheep were color coordinated with the Web Summit’s theme colors
- An ocean of startup, alpha, and beta exhibition booths
- Numerous speakers at the various summits that inspired and motivated us
- #NightSummit Pub Crawls where we mingled with other attendees in a more relaxed environment
Lastly, the motto each of us should live by is: WORK HARD PLAY HARD. Domain Holdings and Flippa USA will be traveling together in a few weeks to celebrate both the holidays and our accomplishments and successes in Tulum, Mexico. Our team is looking forward spending quality time with each other under the sun, with a glass of margarita in hand.
Thank you for reading! Stay tuned for future announcements…
