    Hi guys,

    Some members here might be aware of these strategies for finding potential end-user buyers but I am sure there are many who would find this blog post beneficial.

    Firstly, you need to understand that you must find the potential buyers before buying the domain. Sometimes it feels like a waste of time when the domain at auction you want to buy gets bids over your budget or even if you win it, it gets renewed after you spend a lot of time finding potential buyers but this is a part of domaining and there is no alternative to it.

    The pricing strategy, the sales strategy, everything is secondary, the most important strategy is the buying strategy, if you'll buy better domains with potential buyers you can contact, you won't have to worry about not getting inquiries for your domain because if you have a domain with potential buyers, you can sell it through outbound marketing. Finding potential buyers should be considered a part of the buying strategy. As @Kate often says to those looking for buyers after buying the domains, "Don't put the cart before the horse". We should do things in their proper order, find buyers for the domain before buying the domain.

    There are many tools you can use to find potential buyers but the two I am going to write about are NameDroppers.com and Google.com, not the usual Google search but the ultimate utilization of Google.

    - Google.com

    Everybody uses Google to search for potential buyers but what most domainers do is searching for the keywords and checking the first 5-10 pages which does help but you can do much more at Google than you can imagine.

    I am using GrillCatering.com as an example. By searching for "GrillCatering" (with or without quotes/space) I found many buyers but there is only one using the exact match URL i.e GrillCatering.dk

    Part 1:
    Search for:
    site:GrillCatering.*

    * = TLD, ccTLD or ngTLD, websites with exact keyword "GrillCatering" using any extension will be listed.

    As you can see, here we have GrillCatering dot at/dk/ch/nl/de on the first page. All developed sites. This trick helps find potential buyers that can't be found by simply searching the keywords.

    Now we will check for even more buyers, as there are multiple results for .dk, we need to remove the potential buyers we already found and check if there are even more hidden somewhere between the many results on the next page so we will search for: site:GrillCatering.* -.dk.

    I added -.dk to subtract the .dk results which will bring grillcatering.com.ar to the first page. Often a potential buyer is hidden in the other pages and subtracting the one with many results is the only way to find them.

    Part 2:
    Now search for:
    site:Grill-Catering.*

    Even more potential buyers :)

    Part 3:
    Site:catering

    Yes there is a .catering ngTLD. lol

    Search for:
    Site:catering grill
    Site:catering grill catering

    Even more potential buyers :) This will list all dot catering sites including the word Grill.

    This also helps when you have to find buyers for ngTLD domain like I have Move.global and searching for "move global" doesn't help me out so I search for site:global move and bingo.. imove.global is developed :) Time to spam them :xf.grin:

    I did the same when I was looking for buyers for "fulcrum.io" (before buying the domain name). I searched for site:io fulcrum.

    You can also search for "Keyword linkedin" or "Keyword crunchbase" or search or "GrillCatering" in Google news and you'll see more buyers.. I think using Bing.com or other search engines will help find more buyers but lets contact these first.

    - NameDroppers.com

    ZFBot.com and NameDroppers.com are both very useful tools. Both have their advantages, ZFBot has more to offer but few weeks ago ZFBot.com started charging $5 per month or $50 per year. One disadvantage of NameDroppers is that it doesn't support ccTLD's and ngTLD's except .us. ZFBot supports many ccTLD's and ngTLD's.

    Visit NameDroppers.com

    Search for "grill catering" (without quotes) in the search box.

    NameDroppers "matched 213 domain names". But only shows 50 at a time. There is a button below the search box, "More Options". Click on it and use the search parameters to see different combinations of results to check all the registered domain names containing the keywords "grill catering".

    I can play with the "exact order", "Starts with", "Ends with" and "length" options, like first searching for domains with length 1-10 then 11-15 then 16-20 and so on. Sometimes there are thousands of matched domains and the more the number of domains, the more times you'll have to change the length etc to see all the domains.

    You'll often find domains that are unrelated to the keywords like When a keyword is "Yes" you'll see "eYes" in the results..They obviously cannot be considered a potential buyer whether the site is developed or not.

    For great domains, you don't need to do research to make sure whether it's a great domain or not. But when it comes to the price you should pay, the list and quality of potential buyers comes into play. Sometimes there's an awesome domain at auction and you're willing to pay a high price for it but when you search for the buyers and find only a few and those look like they won't pay much your budget for that domain will decrease. And at other times you see a domain which look like 2 random words put together and you won't pay $20 for that but then you search for potential buyers for it and realize that this is a hidden gem which can be sold for $xxxx!

    I am sure you all will benefit from my post and will make a lot of money, I spent hours typing all this stuff so I want 10% of your profit in my PayPal, Thank you :xf.grin:

    namedroppers is cool but the advantage to google is that at a glance you may determine if the result is a website or simply a for sale domain, and something about what it is about, which anyway a for sale with no content or dead site should not to show up on a google search at all.

    With namedroppers you find yourself sitting there clicking one link after another, with most of them going to a for sale domain, or to nothing, which is why I haven't really used namedroppers in the past. Anyone here who is using namedroppers successfully; would appreciate input, on how.

    I have been using ND for many years and it's one of the factors to determine the value of a domain for myself. Although not dependent on it but does really help many times. Doesn't matter if the result showing at ND goes to sale page or inaccessible. All it gives you idea is how many variations have been registered with the name you're looking for.
