Who should I contact to sell my domains?

Who should I contact to sell my domains is a common question that people new to domain investment often ask.

Firstly: contact potential end users

You could try directly contacting potential end users. A site called domainero.com will help you find potential buyers. You can also do a search for relevant businesses and contact them. My favorite search engine is ecosia.org.

When you contact end users, you can use the following email template. It is best to send all the emails out at about 9am on Monday morning their time.

Subject: For <name of decision maker at the company> - <their domain name> website question

Dear <name of decision maker at the company>, I'm <your name>, a <your occupation, e.g. web designer> from <your city>. I am writing to let you know I currently have the domain name <your domain name> available for purchase. Because I am looking to clear out my domain names by the end of <next month, e.g. May>, I would be willing to offer you <your domain name> below market value for use with your website. If you would like to consider acquiring this domain name, please reply to this message no later than this coming Friday, <date of this coming Friday>. I would be happy to discuss a price that suits your budget. In the event I do not hear from you by that point, I will contact my next <your domain name> candidate. Thanks for taking the time to read this message. I look forward to hearing from you you soon. All the best, <your name> <your name> E-mail: <your email> Tel: <your phone numberl> If this correspondence has arrived at the wrong department, please pass it on to the appropriate staff member and if this matter is of no interest to you I apologize for this unsolicited intrusion.

Here is a very useful video on contacting end users: http://www.domainsherpa.com/david-kelly-contacts/

Secondly: list your domain at all different marketplaces

List your domains on various sales platforms:

sedo.com

Afternic

Uniregistry Market (even if your domain is not registered at Uniregistry)

GoDaddy (even if your domain is not registered at Godaddy)

Flippa

Thirdly: if you are in a hurry to sell

If you are in a hurry to sell, contact end users first (see above). If that doesn't work, you could auction your domains at one of these platforms:

Flippa -- they take a 10% commission

Ebay  -- they also take a 10% commission

Namepros -- free
