Selling any domain name is not an easy task. Not too many people have great keyworded domains that many people want. Everyone who owns domain names wants to sell them for profit, which is not easy to accomplish. So what’s the best way to sell your domains? Market them properly and heavily
I have been buying CO domains since landrush last year and am pretty happy with the results thus far. I have sold a few co domains, am keeping most of them and am currently trying to add LLL and NNN CO domains to my portfolio. When it comes to sellin any domain name it is all about proper marketing. Occassionally you might get someone to land on your parked page by manually typing in your domain – which can lead to a sale, however that is not always the case. You have a much greatr chance of selling a domain that thousands of people see verse waiting for one person to manually find your domain.
I am directing this post towards CO Domains but this mentality can be used for all extensions. the CO domain industry has had a tremendous boost from all the publicity and millions of dollars spent on advertising. Many big dogs also jumped on CO domains which helps add to the success.
Since I own many CO domains, I always look for different ways to offer some for sale. Over the past few months I have been reading about 4.CN. It is mainly geared towards chinese domains, but there have been a few decent CO domain sales. 688.CO sold for about $400 USD, 818.CO $350 USD, and 987.CO $340 USD. 4.CN does seem to be a good place to sell NNN.CO domains, but I decided to give it a shot with my LLL.CO and keyworded domains.
Adding domains to 4.CN is extremely fast and easy. Another benefit is that you DONT have to change your DNS setting to sell on 4. You are given an option to verify the domain by using your registered email – which is a huge plus! I literally just added my domains less than 24hours ago and I already have views to my for sale page and have an offer on one my CO domains. If you are looking for another way to sell your domains, I strongly suggest checking out 4.
Sell CO Domains
This is the exact method I use to market my CO domains.
1. List the domain with Sedo
2. List the Domain at Godaddy Auctions
3. List on 4.CN
4. Advertise on Craigslist
5. Place a link to my domains in my signature on forums
So there you have it, if you are looking to sell domains, make sure to market them correctly. Also list them in as many FREE places as pobbile that dont require you to change nameservers. Good Luck
