Advice For Domain Owners Hoping To Resell Their Domain Names
Important Advice For Domain Owners Hoping To Resell Their Domain
Have you ever wondered how successful domain speculators
sell their domain names?
I recently interviewed some big names to learn their secrets.
Due to the length of the discussion I have had to break up the entire
conversation to several segments.
We begin our exclusive 6 part interview series with the following
"What is the most important advice you would give to new
domain owners hoping to resell their domain names?"
Our panel includes:
Michael Collins (VP Marketing, Afternic.com),
Zane Lawhorn (President, 1 Domains International, Inc),
Michelle Miller (COO BuyDomains.com)
Daniel Mejia (DomainsBot.com),
Stewart Reynolds (EchoArts.com)
Joe Devlin (ToGoDotCom.com)
Robert S. Kieren (NameProdigy.com)
Andrew Allemann (WebMasterExpert.com)
William J. Piniarski (Owner of Webcs.com,Time2Sell.com)
Michael Green (Marketing Guru & Founder, HowToCorp.com)
Joe Devlin: Do your homework. Know what makes
a domain name valuable and have a plan before you register a domain.
A domain name is in essence a business card to the world. Match
the message a domain name can send with a business that needs to
message and you have created value.
Andrew Allemann: Don't buy too many domains before
you sell one or two. You may not be buying quality domains and may
never sell them.
Stewart Reynolds: Have your domain names appraised
to find out which names are the most valuable. Then have the most
valuable domain names pointed to a page where prospective buyers
can contact you. On that page post your asking price and request
Michael Collins: I guess it would seem self-serving
to say list them at Afternic, but letting people know your domains
are for sale is the first step. There are many ways to promote your
domain for sale. Listing them on leading domain name exchanges and
putting a for-sale notice on a website hosted on your name are among
the best. Set a reasonable price. The biggest mistake I see is overpricing.
There are many people who think their two and three word generic
domains with limited market size are worth tens of thousands of
dollars. If you do not have successful experience selling names,
consider a reputable appraisal service. You have to be careful with
appraisals too. Many appraisals are inflated to entice people into
Michelle Miller: Price the name realistically
and use a trusted broker BuyDomains.com offers a 100% FREE listing
service that allows anyone to post their domain for sale. Our site
gets over 50 million hits a month, instantly giving individuals
the opportunity to gain free exposure and sell their name.
