Up for sale are four stock photo domain names: PhotosOf.com, photos-of.com, photo-of.com & photoOf.com
We are a Cape Town based internet company that publishes and monetizes online content.
We acquired these domains to target people who search for “photos of…” and have looked at three business models including:
1.) A stock photo search engine/aggregator which would (affiliate) link to many stock photo websites, the images would be served in a simple structure:
Each page would contain different images from different agencies
2.) A stock photo agency offering quality images at a cheaper price than its rivals. We would’ve only sold our own photographers images. We would’ve been able to charge less as we pay our photographers in ZAR while we would’ve sold our images in US$, the plan would’ve been to give our photographers a task to shoot various words (strategic search terms) to shoot every day.
3.) A free (ad-supported) stock photography site similar to sxc.hu and used our own photographers mixed with public domain images to populate the site with every possible dictionary word (that can be photographed) after www.photosof.com/. We would’ve then cross promoted the site from our other properties by linking to it via image credits as well as image galleries.
This service no longer forms part of our company's plans, in fact it has been a distraction as we have brainstormed numerous (too many) hours what to build on top of the domain, drew mockups logos etc., and still can’t decisively decide whether all three our ideas are crap and just build a mobile app based around photos or a twitter service to surface images based on hash tags. But social media and mobile apps isn’t our forte.
Bid price is for all four domains.
Payment and transfer details
Payment for the domain will be by Escrow.com only to protect both parties.
Buyer to pay all escrow fees (Disbursement method to be international wire transfer).
Domain is currently at Namecheap, if buyer does not have account there, buyer can set up a free account (they also have two factor authentications). After which domain can then be transferred out to registrar of choice.
I don not have any traffic stats for the domain name, as we acquire names to develop not park.
While we have entered a reserve price it is not set in stone, we would be willing to engage with the highest bidder even if reserve is not met.
