One of our members recently had a question regarding how to sell website domain names which she had bought in the past, but no longer wanted to use. We asked industry expert Dickie Armour for his advice.
“I own a number of ‘horsey’ domain names – goes back to the days when I thought I might be an equine IT queen (but became a broke horse breeder instead.) Any idea of where I could sell them?”
Dickie Armour is an expert on buying and selling domain names. He says this…
You could try www.sedo.com where you can list your domains for sale.
The other thing that can work is using social media especially Twitter.
If you use the hashtag #domains and #domainnames quite a few domain name investors watch for those. And you could do a tweet for each domain name.
But it’s never that easy to sell a domain name – all about being there at the right time.
The other thing I would do is contact all the online horse websites – you might be able to sell a few of your domains to them. They won’t be online looking, but if presented with a great domain they might go for it!
If you would like to buy one of the domain names mentioned above, please contact Janet by email: janetgeorge AT irish-draught.net
