The Brandable Insider: A Voice from the Mouth of a Dragon

As you may have heard I had a bit of an accident last week. I took an Olympic 8.5 “swan dive” over the handlebars of my bike. I looked really good in the air but the landing went all wrong. I’m the Eddie The Eagle of biking. Long on desire but short on skill and common sense.

Since my hands and wrists are not working too well right now, this week’s blog is being created by virtue of the Dragon Naturally Speaking, voice recognition software, which was a gift from a generous friend and fellow domainer.

I’m going to keep the blogs short while I’m on the mend. So here’s a few notes on some brandable sales that were reported by NameBio this past week…..

  • ($291) – The aerial drone sector is expanding rapidly and aerial photos, crop inspection and land surveying are some of the main applications for the industry at this point in time. So this domain has a lot of relevance. I just hand regged AcreDrone (dot-com) this week and I think my name is better. But then again I’m just a wee bit biased. (smile)
  • ($105) – Nice radio test friendly 5L. It has an Asian, Hawaiian feel to it. I could see this as a restaurant or food company brand as well as a beachwear clothing line.
  • ($2622) – Great name for a food delivery, grocery, meal subscription service. It could also be a startup in the nutrition, lifestyle, diet or elder care space.
  • ($350) – Site is a strong keyword and Candy has been popular with some start-ups recently so this is a marketable name. Other startups using candy in their brand include: CandyCrushSaga (gaming), DailyCandy (editorial content), SkullCandy (audio), CandyBanana (web entertainment), CandyHouse (interior design) and CandyLab (augmented reality).
  • ($205) – Two strong and popular keywords make this a very marketable brandable domain. Entrepreneurs that do web development, SEO and online marketing love names like this.
