This is a 7 part series on some of the often overlooked ways you can sell domain names. My focus on these is to have as little additional work involved as possible – enough has already been written in how to actively market and sell domains (if you need a reference to some of this let me know). In retrospect, this overview of the 7 surprising (and simple) domain name sales methods should have come first (each tip article came first), but I’m glad I didn’t because part way through I swapped out number 6 with a better method.
Selling domain names has to ultimately end with the sale of your domain name and the following is a list of ways that I’ve either sold a domain or in one case a friend of mine made a sale. None of these methods took more than a few minutes time and are in addition to the normal sales channels.
Method number 1 has a little background so without further ado, here are the 7 methods:
Domain name sales method #1: Whois your most targeted buyer?
Domain name sales method #2: Take advantage of the oldest profession in the world (communication profession that is)
Domain name sales method #3: Track and analyze your parking statistics for upward trends
Domain name sales method #4: Set up an email account on your parked domains
Domain name sales method #5: Check out the domaining forums – seriously
Domain name sales method #6: Use a premium listing on domain sales sites
Domain name sales method #7: Forward your parked domains traffic to your sales page.
I hope you are able to take advantage of at least one of these – please let me know of your experiences and anything that might have worked for you in the comments below!
