    I bought a domain name from GoDaddy and I have a live auction right now on Flippa with 57 views but no follows and no bids and no comments. It's only it's second day. I only paid the $9 didn't pay for any additional promotion. Do you think this might end up being promising with 13 days of the auction to go or is it looking bad? This is my first attempt doing anything like this. It's just a domain name no site at all.

    It's very normal. You need a really good domain name to get bids. Ask yourself why someone should buy your domain / what value it will bring them and if you can't find a strong reason then your domain is not good enough. Selling domains are not that easy.

    Thanks! Most likely no one will bid at all.

    You need a domain that has traffic and then a site. So op throw up a quick site at least.

    think about it this way, short or brandy names OR strong SEO assets, are already taken. WHY?
    because the big dogs (and not only) use programs to determine which domains are worth buying and catch them as they drop back to the market.
    90% of people will renew their domain if its actually worth something (99%?) BUT, these bots will help
    marketers put their hands on the remaining ones worth grabbing.

    My point is - the chance that you as an individual will just snipe a random domain and flip it for profit is very slim. it is doable with the proper setup,
    if you would say you have 10-20-50 domains listed, that will probably be a tell that the proper tools were used and that youre in the know how.

    I'm not a fan of flippa to sell domains, list it in more than one place IMO, i've sold way more domains on SEDO over the years than flippa.
