Are You Serious About Selling Your Domain names? Find a Good Broker Then!

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Well this current downturn hasn’t been doing me any favours of late. So I thought I’d broaden my horizons a little and try some of the domain brokers out there.

Now as I’m sure you’re aware there are lots of people willing to help you sell your names. There’s Rick Latona’s newsletter, Kevin at bigticketdomains.com, Evan Horowitz at Huntingmoon.com (who is a pleasure to deal with.)

 

But there were two that stood out above the rest and secured some very good sales for me (and still continue to do so.)

 

The first is Andy Kelly of  URLBrokers.co.uk – Andy is an old school domainer and has been involved in this business full time for the last five years. He’s forgotten more about domains and closing deals than I’ll probably ever know. He is a pleasure to work with and tries very hard to get top dollar for your names. I can recommend his brokerage service without hesitation and if you are serious about selling your names he is definitely worth contacting.

 

The second is Eric Rice at DNcartoons.comEric has also been involved in this business for some time and is a domain selling machine. He sold 7 of my names in a two week period and still continues to get very nice prices for other names I have listed with him. Eric is a pretty straight shooter and doesn’t mince his words. If he wants to do business with you he’ll let you know. But don’t let this put you off as he has the second most popular domain newsletter online and some superb contacts, and most importantly – He delivers excellent results.

 

So definitely give Andy and Eric a try and I’d also recommend Evan and Kevin as well.

Remember, the wider your distribution channel and exposure, the more likely you are to get a sale.

    Thanks for the recommendations! Was wondering what the approximate price range was for the domains you recently sold?
    It seems like different brokers might be more suited for different price points.

    Out of the four brokers you mentioned, would you recommend any one in particular to sell a high demand generic keyword domain in the 20K-50K range?

    Thanks for your comments.
    bbdomainer - i won’t go up to the max, but the cheapest domain that was sold was for $1500.
    as for dealing in larger ticket names, both andy and Eric are more than capable and Kevin at Bigticketdomains has secured some of the biggest deals in the business, so take your pick.

    Nice post and good advice, i really believe that brokers are the best way to sell domains. Market places like sedo or afternic among others are a second choice, but you don’t get much exposure unless you pay to have your domains featured, what is a bad business i believe, you pay those for exposure and then you pay a percentage on the sale, you pay twice, and besides having your domain featured doesn’t give any guarantee, you’re paying and paying.
    The worse place for selling in my opinion are the forums, the idea i’m getting in forums is that some buyers there want a premium domain for a reg fee, and some of them think you should pay them to buy your domain (kidding here) so forums are out for domain selling. Forums can be good to learn and discuss, but not for selling, at least in my opinion. Even for learning like Rick Latona said, don’t do something just because you read a lot of comments of people telling you to do, think for yourself.

    Learn from many different places and make up your own mind, i say (i’m off topic already)

    Regards to all
