    Hi, I found an Exact match domain with over 50k searches according to ubersuggest and google. .Com is available. So if I buy that domain, what will be the next steps? I am not good at writing articles and SEO.

    How to make that domain get founded by buyers other than listing in domain marketplaces?

    Listing names on marketplaces is not the way to find buyers, at least not end-users with the biggest budgets. I list all my names but I am also reaching out to end-users all the time, I find it to be the most successful way to sell domains, unless you have a good budget and exerience to buy good names that sell themselves. Just becasue a name has good search volume doesnt make it easy to sell.

    When you say writing articles and SEO?? Are you developing the name or selling it? Yo umetniton SEO and then you menton finfinf buyers/marketplaces?? You need to decide before you buy a name what you want to do with it.

    This advice applies if you plan on selling the domain.
    The #1 most important thing is to contact the right person at the company, the decision maker....

    Check the company exec team on their website, Google, Bloomberg, Yahoo finance etc and find someone who can make the call on whether to buy the name (ie the business development manager, CEO etc). For example, If you Google "Cisco Executive team" for instance, it comes up with this - https://newsroom.cisco.com/exec-bios, so its not hard to find the right person. If you Google "Cisco Email format", it comes up with this - https://rocketreach.co/cisco-email-format_1063

    So its not hard figure out the person's email either. I find LinkedIn a very useful resource for this and to find out the founder or CEO's name.

    For smaller companies that may not be in Bloomberg or Yahoo Finance etc, sometimes you can google something like "company name CEO" or look on LinkedIn and then find the persons name and then work out the email from there. You can search a company on LinkedIn and then click "People" down the left hand side and it will show you a list of people who work there with their job titles.

    This is just what works for me and can be tweaked to suit yourself

    1) Email end-users with a short to-the-point email offering them your name

    2) Only offer the name you want them to buy, dont spam them with "If you dont like that name, what about this other list of 500 names I have....."

    3) Ensure you have a decision-maker in the company, DONT just use the WHOIS email, most of the time it will get ignored/deleted - Use LinkedIn, Bloomberg, yahoo Finance, Company site, Google etc to find out who the CEO, Business Development Manager is and contact them directly. You can also find the email by looking at their website or just google "@companyname.com" and you usually find someoneone from the company has their email in Google somewhere, then you have the email format.

    4) Be patient, they dont always reply straight away (if at all) - Don't flood them with emails if they dont reply.

    5) Be polite and professional at all times, thank them for their time if they aren't interested, you never know if they might need/want the name later on.

    6) Use Escrow for sales, it provides them with a level of security when dealing with someone they dont know, especially if you have contacted them first.

    7) Send an email after the Escrow transaction asking them if they have the name in their account, thank them for their time, wish them all the best in the future etc...Politeness and professionalism goes a long way in this industry, especially with the all the scammers online these days.

    Hope that helps, good luck

    Thank you for such detailed answer.

    Yes I just want to buy and flip the domain. Dont care about writing contents and such.

    You mentioned escrow or escrow.com? If escrow.com can I not link the direct godaddy marketplace listed link of that domain in the email?

    You can if you want and just set BIN price so if they are interested, they can buy the name at a fixed price.
