    What's the best way to get at least $100 offers on your domains @ marketplaces to get the ball rolling?

    Ideas wanted. Thanks.

    Best way? Having good names (not in relation to the quality of your names)

    Besides,
    Regular marketplaces, outbound marketing with a decent pitch and good connections.

    True true.
    I'm with you on the "good connections". I've always suspected this is how certain domains get high sold prices.

    Gotta be "in the club".

    But the point of this thread was assuming the domains were mediocre to decent to borderline "suck".

    What secrets do you guys have to get AT LEAST A $100 OFFER?

    Any success?

    Of course great domains sell themselves this is obvious. Let's exclude those domains for sake of conversation.

    But as they say one man's garbage is another man's treasure.

    As evidenced many times by "head scratcher" domain sales. Like whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

    There are also aftermarket domains that are worth AT LEAST a $100 Investment by a buyer who believes it can sell for much higher.

    And also there are domainers who regged domains using 99 cent and $1.99 specials.

    Even if a $100 bid is all it gets that's still a great profit.

    So let's hear it!

    Any place online to promote on that nets great results?

    Gotta be in what club to get offers over 100?? Buy or reg good domains have your nameservers pointed to a for sale page . You will get offers that's it. Therer is no other secret.

    For maximum chances at an offer, list at multiple marketplaces and have the domain itself redirect to a page where interested people can make an offer.

    I used to recommend emailing prospective buyers, but spammers have abused and ruined this strategy.

    You don't need "connections" to get $100 offers, you need domains that don't suck. Simple as that

    I read somewhere that you had 6.000+ domains. Not sure if this is true but if it is, and you don't get at least a couple of $99+ offers, I think you should consider changing your strategy. I started with hand regging just like you and haven't had any luck, just a couple of XXX sales and offers. But when I started buying some domains on the aftermarket I began getting more offers.

    Most offers I got came from GD and all domains I sold so far has been there.

    I upload all my "brandable" domains on BrandBucket, those that don't get accepted I try with BrandDo etc. And all other domains is published on GD, Sedo, Flippa, Uniregistry, Afternic. Going to fix an Efty site too in a while.

    It's all about quality. Quantity of crappy domains is just a waste of money and stressful when renewals comes around and you haven't received any offers.

    Exactly! Spammers really ruined the game. Desperation breeds "Spammy"ness. I can't even count how many outbounds I've sent.

    btw? What's the "trick" with that? does the whole "find similar domains via whois and send them emails"?

    saying something like " I see you own a similar domain. just wondering if you might be interested in BlahBlah.com?"

    9 times outta 10 it's a domain that's about to expire. so I just wait till it does and if I really like it. reg it. problem then would be that it has a drop in it's history.

    That's not enough or else everyone would be getting offers as that's what "everyone" does slap a min price of $100 for offers. Actually that's the standard Min price for most marketplaces although Namejet is $69.

    again I have to clarify. I meant you need connections to get big numbers it's assumed that $100 is part of that package but I was more talking about $xxxx and up.

    sometimes I don't think it's whether your domain sucks or not. That's always the go to assumption but I firmly believe it's just that Marketplaces are just so "overwhelming" by design. that way such marketplaces can "sell you" on the idea to buy featured listings.

    it's like with any free to list site. Ebay or Amazon which ever. Free to list but without paying for featureds GOOD LUCK getting your product seen much less getting $100 offers.

    Although I DO see a "Trend" or "Tendency" as I did it myself to "filter" all domains with BIDS.

    Doing this will put the domains with the most bids on top of the list. 100 bids or 58 bids or 30 bids. etc etc.

    Some won't go farther than page 2 after filtering like this. but most if curious might go down to the domains that only got 1 bid.

    maybe they think there's an opportunity to snag a deal since it has only 1 bid? as opposed to the ones with high bids that's already up to $xxxx or $xx,xxx.

    My point? A $100 bid is HUGE in bumping you up above ZERO bids.

    Who here has ever not used Filter Bids on Godaddy or Sedo or Flippa?

    Domainers are a busy bunch. No time to check out pages and pages of millions of domains.

    Thee assumption is that "Someone" besides themselves has done some "homework" and has chosen to bid on these particular domains.

    That I believe to some domainers is enough to say that these domains with bids and offers are "Worth a look". It's also almost like a Free Appraisal.

    Let's be honest. There's no better appraisal "system" than an actual Bid. That's REAL. Concrete.

    It says someone wants this domain enough to put a bid.

    I call this the Lazy Domainer method.

    lol

    This is why I decided to ask this question about what's the secret to get that all so elusive $100 Offer.

    Wanna know the Secret?

    Check out the thread I created.

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/sh...n-to-push-it-to-auction.1005683/#post-6037069

    lol That's the SECRET. Namepros is the SECRET.

    We as a COLLECTIVE should make $100 offers on our friends and neighbors domains on NP not for the purpose of Shill bidding but for the purpose of maybe taking the chance to Grab a domain maybe worth $xxxx or $xx,xxx in the future for only $100 (if no other bids).

    I'm sure you will agree the more domain sales the better it is for all Domainers as a whole.

    So give the thread above a look.

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/sh...n-to-push-it-to-auction.1005683/#post-6037069

    It goes without saying. Don't make an offer on a crap domain. Do your own homework and then make a bid of $100 on it because once you make that offer you are officially on the hook to buy it. No exceptions.

    I usually do not respond to $100 offers but last week I received one and for whatever reason decided to reply. I basically said I was looking for a much higher offer (not really anticipating I would get one). They quickly upped their offer to $399 but I am looking for a much higher offer than that (1 million + population city geo real estate name).

    I hate to say this but a lot of domains are worth more when they drop. I was a prolific member on another forum and the complaint was that domainers could not sell to another domainer, even for 10 dollars. As soon as they let the domain drop, people paid 50 bucks to be first in line to pick it up.

    I am probably one of those guys paying to pick it up because its easy and effortless. No escrow, nobody to bother with and everything goes smooth as silk.

    Haggling over a 100 dollar domain is more trouble than its worth.... for me anyways.

    That is why I like a professional place like this name pros, I have high hopes that I will find some decent action. When I get the fever I have been known to pay up to 5k on a bid.
