    Hi

    I have been Domaining for 18 months, it is fair to say I am still learning the ropes, one area I want to get some info is how you use social media to buy/sell/promote domains and also best people/ organisations to follow in the industry?

    I am looking to set myself up on Twitter and Facebook so any advice would be great

    Thanks

    RH

    I'm sorry. I'm a luddite with social media. So I cannot help you. I even had my domain name facebook name taken away from me by somebody else :(

    Most of the linkedin user is middle or high management, sometimes you even could get director or even ceo. If you want to sell your domain you should reach the decision maker, right?

    Could you please give some examples as to how we should use Twitter for marketing? A non-real example might be good.

    Why is it some pages you create on facebook (it seems to be mostly older ones) you are allowed to create URL's but some pages (it seems to be the more newer pages) you cannot change the url to what you want (not allowed).

    With few Tweets and multiple Hashtags you can reach thousands of people. Some my be interested in your tweets and can become potential followers / traders.

    Marketing your domains via twitter is only as good as the quality of the content you put out via your tweets etc and the quality of those you choose to follow

    But most businesses have a twitter account

    And their is a good little group of domain name investors that communicate via twitter

    @platey - I don't really follow what you mean about how to use a twitter account. I don't get what you mean. As domainers we want to sell domains in our domain portfolio. But their really isn't much content if we are twittering "I have the domain HappyDreams.com for sale for $2,500". You want this to go to potential end-users and not to fellow domainers. OK there might be some tangential benefit from sending that to a bunch of domainers. But I don't see them as being your target audience. So how do you target your intended audience?

    Also. I can't see from your argument that most businesses have a Twitter account, gives much incite into actually how to actually use a Twitter account to sell domains.

    Can you elaborate why you don't use Facebook for Social Media Marketing, but do use Twitter?

    These questions are asked from the PoV of a Social Media Neophyte trying to learn more. They are not intended to take a contrarian view, to have an argument. Which was why I was asking for examples.

    With Linkedin you can message potential buyers and you can find profiles of people from most legit companies. And people can see your profile and credentials which is helpful.

    Twitter can be used to send individual messages to other Twitter users .... ok that's pretty obvious but I don't want to assume everyone is familiar with it. This is handy if you can't find the correct phone number or email address.

    This is the limit of my experience, so I would love to hear more about the mass marketing potential for promoting domains on social media. It sounds like there is great potential for increasing exposure.

    Just a fan of twitter and not a fan of fb

    Just preference just like yahoo or gmail etc people choose the one they prefer etc

    If you waffle about your interest or something you know about eg not domain names etc but just be you etc you'll fund potential endusers and occasionally i tweet the odd domain name etc

    my interest is tech start ups etc eg tech ideas which leads to buying the dot com of the idea etc and once i buy the dot com of my tech idea etc i can tweet about my idea etc which tends to lead to businesses and brand consultants following my twitter etc

    Which are effectively ideal business end users etc
