I have not been much of an outgoing seller in the past. I normally would list my domains on the platforms like Sedo, GoDaddy, etc… but I’ve just begun contacting potential end users through Google’s results page for keywords. I sold one domain that I mentioned yesterday and yesterday into today I’ve got multiple offers on a second domain that I emailed people about. I’m giving it a few more days to see if any other offers come in and then I’ll sell it. This domain was from Namejet, it was listed here on TLD.org in one of my daily lists, picked it up for around $500 and top offer right now is $2,XXX. Great domain, makes a ton of sense for the end user, and they are getting it at a price that is fair for them and it gives me a nice return on investment. I’ll post more info once the sale closes. Here’s the list…

My Top 5 Picks

MI3.com – I think of Mission Impossible 3 but there must be some other uses for this since there’s a lot of bidders on this one.

GovernmentCash.com – everyone wants money for free from the government. What makes me sick is that I read an article about one of those little charges on our cell phone bills. Uncle Sam puts that there, takes that cash, and buys cell phones to give away to people who can’t afford them. What incentive do some people have to work. They get free housing, free food, free health care, free cell phones. Why bother working when the working people are paying for everything for them. End diatribe.

Nale.com – great CVCV.com domain, starting bid is $500 so bring the wallet.

Stunk.com – could apply this word to the Yankees in the Tigers series, or the Tigers in the World Series.

FloridaSpas.com – good geo domain, I’d guess there is a ton of spas in Florida.

My 5 Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders

ColoradoBodyguards.com – there’s so many good GEO+Keyword domains out there that people would want to buy, never thought about bodyguards as one before but it makes sense.

SBRN.com – four good letters equals a winner.

IncomeTaxShelters.com – I’d love to learn about how the rich people knock their effective tax rate down to 10% or less.

LicensingFees.com – a lot of different businesses have these so a lot of potential uses.

FilterPlus.com – nice brandable domain to sell filters on. The “Plus” makes people think your site is special.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000)

BronxRealtor.com – last time I posted a domain with ‘realtor’ in it people said it was a trademarked term so buyer beware. If you don’t have any trademark issues with it, it is a great domain.

  • Nice going. Can you share message template you use while contacting end users? Also do you email them from your personal email or some different email? Any othe tips for selling to end users would be great.

    • It is a pretty standard email I am using. In the subject I’ll put the keyword (instead of the domain name, I think the open rate is much better this way). Email body is pretty basic: “I own DOMAINNAME.com and am looking to sell my asset. I believe your business may have an interest in this asset. If you would like to discuss further please let me know via email or phone. I am contacting multiple companies and a sale will occur on a first come first serve basis. Thanks for your time.”

      I email them from my @TLD.org address as I think it looks more professional.

      The only tip I have I mentioned yesterday, and that is don’t list your domains on Sedo/GoDaddy/etc… if you’re going to contact people because if they go through that medium to make an offer you are losing out on the commission after you did the work.
