Bido update: A new day, a new release. Features explained:

Today we’ve pushed a new version to Bido.com, and we want to share some of the highlights and details with you. Many have asked what we have been up to lately and we emerge with some good news.

One of the main features that you’ll notice now is the “Ask the seller a question” module. This new question and answer module allows prospective purchasers to ask a seller a question on any auction. Sellers are able to respond to the questions and have discussions with the prospective buyers. Sellers are also able to make the questions and answers visible to others, in case they feel the information will help their sale. If a seller makes a question visible, that means if anyone else visits the auction page, they would be able to read those previously asked questions and their answers. There’s also a file upload tool that should be very useful to help facilitate the exchange of information. For example, a seller may wish to provide a report of traffic from Google Analytics, an export of parking statistics, a custom logo, or other files that would assist prospective purchasers to make a bid.

Another module that frequent sellers might savor is the Resolution of item conflicts module. If you have tried to park a domain at a company where the previous owner had the domain parked, this scenario may sound familiar. If you have ever tried to list a domain on Bido that was in someone else’s account, you would previously hit a roadblock and need to contact Bido support in order to proceed. However, this new module provides sellers a self-serve system to resolve these cases without intervention by Support.

Also in this update we have released a couple hundred various other improvements around the site that overall should make the experience that much better for all Bido members and visitors. Sorting columns is more intuitive, the site loads a lot faster, the cache system works better, some updates to our affiliate program, and a number of other improvements.

We urge all affiliates to log in and get your affiliate links and banners, and add them to your blogs and domain related websites.

We hope you enjoy the changes and we’re looking forward to continuing to take the platform capabilities farther and better for all.

    Thank you Erdinc for your feedback. We actually have a feedback portal where we encourage ideas and where we also prioritize feedback: http://feedback.bido.com
    Anyway, your points are noted. The front end UI will be getting overhauled in the future. We’ll see what can be done to improve those things. The interest gauges that you mention we don’t have plans to hide them but anything is possible, perhaps making this a per-user preference. We’ll take a look. As for themed auctions, this is something we will explore in the future (our position on that has not changed). We appreciate your support as we work to continuously make Bido better and better.

2 weeks in review at Bido

In the two weeks since we’ve been back, we’ve ran over 100 auctions. Thanks to all buyers and sellers who have been with us during this exciting part of our journey. During this time, on average, we’ve sold 1 in 8 auctions, with an average sale price of $251. These numbers will fluctuate as time goes by, but it shows us that our system still ticks like a clock to this day. Our intention is to keep these and other metrics balanced in a favorable level and perhaps ever-improving.

Quick Stats aside, we’ve made some changes during these two weeks in order to increase the quality of the listings:

Sellers may only submit 10 domains per day. This change encourages sellers to carefully review their portfolio and not just unload a large list of unrealistic or low quality inventory into the system. In turn, the voters are less fatigued and don’t need to tread through never ending and cluttered lists of inventory up for voting. We also know that sellers are frustrated when their inventory gets bumped off the cliff by an unscrupulous seller clogging the pipes, and so this change to throttled submissions we know will really hit home. We’ve been listening, watching, and adapting, and we didn’t stop there.

In addition to that lovely change, we’ve increased the time that auctions run to 4 (four) days. No more here one day, gone the next. The auctions on Bido are front and center to a wider audience, and in turn, buyers and sellers all benefit. Sellers who take the time to submit high quality inventory are rewarded with long time exposure on the Bido homepage. Our advice: take 5 minutes, identify your 10 best domains for sale, put prices next to them, and submit them to the crowd. We know it takes a few minutes of your time, but this time is well rewarded if you’re bringing quality inventory to the table. The truth is that there’s never been a better time than now to list your domains with Bido.

One of the other ways that we’re clearing out low quality inventory from our auctions (that’s right, we said it) is that we’re handing out less complimentary voting points. This means less domains will be voted in, and we’re perfectly fine with that, and you should be too. Here’s a few reasons why. For Voters: We feel that this will open new opportunities for voters because A) good inventory just might hover in the Recent Listings tab ever so slightly longer, and therefore, you now get more of a chance to spot a gem to cast your vote on, and B) as these new changes at Bido make their butterfly effects, more and more sellers will come forward with higher quality inventory, giving you even more opportunities to earn money for voting for those high quality domains into auctions that end with sales. For Sellers: Your auctions wont be drowned by other auctions that really should have not made it to auction in the first place. More exposure will equal higher returns. For Buyers: Please retrain yourselves to check our inventory lists more carefully. The changes are still making their ripples and full circles, but if you spend the couple minutes to check our inventory emails that we send out almost every day, you will probably find something of interest. Now would be a good time to review your settings and make sure you are subscribed to the emails. Click here and make sure you have enabled the setting that will notify you via one “daily digest” email about all the day’s auctions. The “Daily Digest” is the one you want enabled. There are opportunities if you look for them. Coming to the site rewards you farther, please don’t just check and rely on the email. For example, on the Bido.com site we list revenue stats, when provided by sellers. In fact, there’s currently an auction for a revenue producing domain that the seller states is earning in nearly 1 (one) month what the current bid is at, the reserve has been met, and the auction ends in less than a day. Visit the Live Auctions tab and click to show “Items with revenue”. There’s gold in there and it’s easy to dig for.

Now that we’re back in motion, we’re on a roll. We have work to do, and a lot of it. We want your feedback. As we move in the direction to help the community and as we build what is needed to allow you reach your selling goals, and for buyers, your buying goals, we appreciate your support. We know you have choices when buying and selling your domains, and we hope you consider us if what you are looking for is a great experience, quick turnaround, and favorable results. Thanks for reading. All comments appreciated, and we’ll see you in the auctions.

Several noteworthy domains ending today at 3pm EDT on Bido

Several noteworthy domains that are ending today on Bido at 3pm EDT, and our thoughts on them:
MyTaxForm.com – This revenue generating domain can help any bookkeeper or tax consultant. Seller states it is earning an average of $31.92 per month in parking revenue.
Design.cd – Great for a design firm or CD cover design company.
Hamburgers.ws – One of the most popular foods for lunch or dinner. This domain could serve as the flagship domain for a hamburger company, or could be a site with a location finder to locate a place to get a burger, also with recipes, BBQ tips, a community of hamburger enthusiasts, etc.
Idol.ws – Great domain for a site about idols and other things people like and worship. Could be broken into many topics. Many possible uses, also a popular acronym.

Good luck to all buyers and sellers. These and other domains are ending today at 3pm EDT. Visit Bido now to see the full list and place your bids.

Auction Schedule

In an effort to better organize our auctions, provide a satisfying experience for buyers and sellers, and to the tune of auctions being “events”, we’ve implemented a new auction schedule that we’ll follow when listing auctions:
Bido Auction Schedule
We’re focusing on the TLD of the domains and so we’ve grouped the different areas of the world into different time slots. Please have a look at the new auction schedule and let us know what you think, as your feedback is important to us. We’ve got some work to do to adapt the autolist settings to integrate with this new format, so please excuse our dust while we work on those core functions of your settings. In the short term, we’re carefully setting up auctions according to this schedule, and in the long term, we plan to allow sellers more flexibility with selecting auction times within this new schedule that is being followed.
We’ve also rearranged some auctions that have not yet started, have a look and place your bids now.

In other news, we’ve reduced the amount of domains sellers may submit each day. This will put less fatigue on the voters and make a fairer marketplace for all sellers who submit quality inventory. The idea is the quality will stand out easier, get more activity, and as such, buyers and sellers will more easily accomplish their buying and selling goals.
We hope you enjoy these changes and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback in the comments and on our feedback portal.

    Welcome back!

    Just noticed a “typo” on your tagline at the top of the blog page.
    I’m sure it should read “We auction stuff people want.” :-)
