Just to recap, this is all about Making money online with domain names by selling your domain name in unique ways – we’ll cover other monetization methods in another series.

Domain name sales method #2:

Use the “Tell-a-Woman”

Now this is not specifically about networking and building relationships in the traditional sense and before you send that complaint email or post hate comments please realize this concept has been around a long time and was coined by Tex Williams back in the 40’s. Cue the twangy background music:


If you want to spread the news
There are lots of ways to use
But the ordinary ways are much too slow.

There is just one thing to do
Here is my advice to you
Confidentially it’s the fastest way I know.

Don’t telephone don’t telegraph
Tell a woman and the news will get around.

This holds true today even in the times of FaceBook, Twitter and Texting where you can communicate with hundreds or thousands of people in almost real time. It doesn’t even have to be a woman, but generally it is someone who you may know who fits the following… You’re having a conversation at dinner with a group of people and you are interupted 3 times in an hour by someone stopping by who saw person X at your table – they literally know everyone… or it could be someone you go to when you have a question because they “know everybody”…

Domain Name Networking

These people are invaluable friends, but they can also be a help in your online business and in selling domains. If you are like me, you’ll buy some random domains at some point because they have great search numbers/CPC, but you have no idea what you’re going to do with them. I had one like this that was about to expire and even though I liked the name I hadn’t actively tried to sell it and I wasn’t going to renew it because I just knew it was going to take a while and a lot of work/time to get the necessary contacts.

Well, we had dinner with a few friends recently and two of them are the classic Tellawoman, including being female, and they were chatting about someone taking a new job and it was in the exact area of my domain. They were able to put me in contact with that person and effectively lent me their authority and network of people and I sold a domain that I would otherwise have dropped and just lost the money.

Once again, this took almost no effort on my part and you can’t beat that for simplicity because it only took a few minutes time. Now, I wouldn’t suggest overusing this one – mostly because I hate pushy people and I surely don’t friend/choose to hang out with people I know are just pushing me to buy their junk, but used sparingly I think it is surprisingly effective… Just don’t be “that guy/girl” – nobody likes that. Oh, and if you are offended by the reference, I apologize in advance – doesn’t make it any less true though.
