Domain Aftermarket Poll Update: The Results Are Not Very Meaningful

September 12, 2012

Last week I administered an informal poll to ask which domain aftermarket venues domainers were using and which of those were bringing them sales.

Although I feel the results are hardly worth discussing, I felt obligated to post a follow-up nonetheless.

As you can see, 6 people indicated that they had sold a domain through CAX within the last year, while only 5 people admitted to actually using CAX within the last year.  It seems that some folks chose not to complete both questions, or had a hard time following instructions.

Aside from that, the sample size is extremely small.  A total of 41 people answered the first question, whereas only 35 people chose to answer the second question.

On these two points alone, I would advise everyone to take these results with a grain of salt.
