    Domain investors that have performed outbound sales will be aware that the ability to contact the appropriate person within an organisation can make or break a sale. While small establishments may only have a single decision maker that you need to connect with to sell a domain name, it can be a daunting task to find the right person to talk to at a larger company.

    For this edition of our Expert Exchange series, we ask our panel of brokers:

    How do you get in touch with the right people when trying to sell a domain to a company? Who are the right and wrong people in a company to contact?


    @Joe Uddeme, Founder of NameExperts LLC

    @Jen Sale, COO of Evergreen.com


    @Bill Sweetman, CEO of NameNinja


    George Hong, CEO of @GUTA


    @Giuseppe Graziano, CEO of GGRG


    Kevin Fink (@iHaveThisIdea), COO of Starfire Web Holdings


    @Dave Evanson, Senior Broker at @Sedo


    @Hobi Michalec, Co-founder of Lumis Group

    As a former CFO for a 50-100 employee company, I echo this comment from Hobi:

    Marketing, for sure. With exceptions, of course, domain acquisitions usually derive from a marketing budget. I'd stay away from the CFO as their decision will be cost-determined vs. need-determined.

    The CFO may not see the cost benefit for such an acquisition as his/her focus is often in conflict with the marketing department whose solution to almost every challenge is to spend more money :)

    The topic itself reminded me of tons of low-quality or otherwise questionable domains I frequently receive email offers about, both from domainers-owners and domainers-frontrunners. I mean domains like ExpertSexChange dot something promoted as "experts exchange", etc. In current environment, outbound marketing is not necessary optimal at least in time management aspects. In any case, the basic recommendation (imho) should be - sell good domains. Do not be shy to drop "errors" - almost any portfolio can be cleaned. Do not buy domains based on automated appraisals (or any 3rd party appraisals). Spend some time and configure hosting/parking to make it clear that the domain is for sale. And, in this case, an issue of contacting right people would become secondary one :)

    Try to get in contact with the top - person of a company to / before you offer a domain to them.
