Our goal here at Efty is to make our platform into the one tool that every domainer on the planet loves to use. We’ve made great strides in that direction, and we still see loads of opportunity ahead of us. In a minute, I’ll tell you more about what we have in store for you this year.
As many of you reading this already know, 2015 was a pretty big year for us on all levels. We came out of beta right after summer, we teamed up with Michael Cyger, and we launched the best For-Sale landing pages in the industry. Time flies and we’re already working on awesome new features and improvements that we’ll be rolling out throughout this year.
I’m really excited to walk you through some of the big updates we will be pushing live in 2016.
Efty finds your new and updated domains
Less administration means more time for domaining. Here’s how Efty is going to change the way you’ve been keeping your portfolio up to date.
As an Efty user, you already receive a weekly update by email allowing you to kick off your week with a consolidated update on your portfolio. We’re stepping up our game by automatically finding your new, transferred, dropped and expired domains, and updating your Efty database accordingly.
You can focus on monetizing and mastering your portfolio, while Efty does all the boring, administrative necessities for you!
Manage your leads from within Efty
How do you like to have all sales related data in Efty, while easily communicating with clients?
We’ve been considering building a lead management tool in Efty for quite a while. While at the Network Lane at NamesCon well over a dozen users came up our booth and suggested that we start working on CRM-like functionalities.
So now we’re planning on releasing tools in Efty that will allow you to better manage leads and contacts. Keep an eye out for new functionality that will more easily allow you to connect with leads and contacts.

Revamped Efty marketplace
We’ve been getting a ton of great feedback on our brand new For-Sale landing pages. Lots of our users would like to know if we have plans to update the Efty Marketplace as well. Well, we’ve got some great news for you: a complete redesign of the Efty Marketplace is coming!
Though the current Marketplace is serving its purpose (check out co-founder Doron’s personal Marketplace, which looks pretty cool) it could use a boost in design and functionality. We’ll be releasing a stunning new responsive design, accompanied by improved integration with Efty For-Sale landing pages.
New statistics and improved insights
Wouldn’t it be awesome to see your portfolio’s Estibot value change over time, with great looking graphics? We fully agree!
One of the coolest features Efty offers, is the Financial Cockpit and Efty Insights. It tells you how your portfolio is performing, where you’re making or losing money, and gives you all sorts of neat insights into your domain portfolio. Over the past year we’ve received some great ideas from our users on how to further improve Efty Insights.
Firstly, we’ll make sure it’s fully customizable, so you can easily build reports based on custom date ranges. Secondly, we’ll bring new statistics to Efty, one of which will be the Estibot value of your portfolio.
If you have a suggestion for our reporting modules, I’d love for you to reach out and tell me all about it!
It will amuse some of you to know that back in 2014, while in private beta, our design was described as ‘cPanel like’ by a particular individual. All jokes aside, that did inspire us to do a two-week design and development sprint and come up with a brand new design of our application.
Once again we’ll be doing a complete redesign of our application later this year. We’re dropping our mobile version and are aiming for a fully responsive web application, serving all device types and sizes.
Before releasing the redesign, we’ll be updating Efty’s domain grid, accompanied by better bulk editing options. These are currently in beta and we’re seeing great improvement on speed and overall usability.
A lightning fast new grid coming soon!
I’d like to thank all our users and partners for helping us becoming the very best tool in the industry. 2015 has been a great year for us and it’s our goal to delight you throughout 2016!
If there’s anything related to our development roadmap you’d like to discuss, please send me an e-mail and I’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible.
