Brandable domain sales take over the Week of June 30th!
Brand.com setting the record high of 500k for reported domain sales kicked off the biggest week for brandable domain name sales I think I’ve ever seen. While arguably not strictly a brandable domain name since brand gets 110k exact Google Global searches a week, one word domains are arguably the premiere category of brandables with lots of non-keyword related industry giants like Apple or Blackberry. While this site focuses on made up brandables since they are more affordable (and honestly require less capital), if you have $20,000+ to spend on the domain name and the marketing dollars to brand the word as your service I think single word keywords are the way to go in many many cases.
The sale formed the capstone of a stellar week for brandables with another one word keyword Swig.com selling for $20,000 for presumably resale since the domain is showing as for sale on the landing page. Selling for over $10,000 included; catchy brandable phrases, puremix.com (43k), thisisme.com (59k), Ufun.com, bigbeauty.com, perfectsquare.com, cafebank.com; straight brandable sahaf.com and genova.com; Foodhq.com at 12k stood out as a wide keyword with a common brandable suffix. (iq, hq, xs, etc.)
