    Hello,
    I know I'm not good at selling something. However, I own several domain names, and would like to sell them. I'm not asking for a brooker or links to how-to's that don't work, but for a fast (yes, I need to get some incomes fast) and would be ready to pay for it. Don't know we accuracy of estibot, but my portfolio is estimated by them over 100k. I just need 5K to finish the month.

    member since 2016 , have you read the forum much ?

    Fact - only fast way is to set a 1$ starting auction on the sales thread here, it may not go well, but this is truly the only " fast " way.

    OR--you can outbound them to end users in the industry which use same but less clear domains.

    OR--If they are highly marketable domains, you can run on an auction platform and gain exposure by paying namebio , and submitting to DSAD , then sending outbound emails.

    - " realistic " way is to list on all platforms with make offer or reasonable bin, and try to enter on squadhelp if there brandables. then sit and wait and quality along with luck you may see a sale.

    - " smart " way is to study and scan drops so methodically that you get more marketable domains, which will sell themselves once listed.

    Good Luck !

    Never use Estibot, that's the first rule of domaining. If Estibot says its worth 100K, its probably worth 1/1000th of that.

    There is no quick fix for this industry. The only way to learn is to read, read and read some more so you understand the value of domains and how to find end-users and approach them.

    Do you have your domains listed at dan.com or Afternic where we could see your names? Hard to believe the 100K estimate, even from Estibot ...

    Hello,

    Tank you all and you're right! I never took time to read enough and participate more because having a feeling of not really understanding, like ashamed. I think that this topic can be closed as solved.

    You provided me with already good insights and will start by doing what all of you kindly recommended.

    I wasn't expecting you would take time for my question.

    Thanks again!

    From my past career success, I know #1 to set up my own little school (a simple self-learning program) and inch-by-inch I will become a smarter domainer AND #2 to learn to trust my inner knowing-voice, I will succeed!! (there are always not so easy moments but, by digging in more, and focusing more, successes will come! That's my two cents.

    Hello,
    Well actually yes, all domain names cumulated, I'm above.
    $58,970.com
    $17,950 .net
    $21,630 .io
    $31,990 .org
    and others

    I didn't really took care about bulk estimated values, more about, which domain names would sound great for me if I wanted to launch a new platform, brand, and so on.

    Short and "nice" souding, but it's highly subjective, my point of view.

    I waited so far, never listed, tried to sell, playing the clock, but now, lost my job, out of money, last year I can afford renewal fees.

    link or PM Dan.com portfolio. with your super low interaction on this forum, I would worry of your legitimacy, so having to point Name Servers is a fair request. otherwise you could pitch all kinds via PM ..

    maybe we will buy some from you if quality unvails.

    wishing you the best either way .

    Hello,
    I'm currently on dan.com but don't really understand the meaning of your enquiry. I can point some domains. I already tried sedo but without success, so I think that they must be other ways than relying on big websites with thousands of offers.
    What do you mean by my "legitimacy"? I already pointed all my domain names to my web server and was thinking about making my own landing pages, but it will be lot of work.
    I didn't get any PM.
    What are your quality criterias?
    either way, didn't understood your reply, but wishing you the best.

    Definitely do NOT feel ashamed .. 99% of domainers started with relatively bad or horrible domains .. the key is to get better before losing too much money.

    Depending on how many domains you own, 100k of Estibot valuation isn't necessarily meaningless (although to be clear .. it might be) .. it's really impossible for us to say anything of substance in terms of what you should specifically do in your case with your specific domains without knowing the domains (or at least a sampling), along with the actual number of domains you own within each TLD.

    Aside from that, without knowing any more specific information about your domains or portfolio, @ecomslice's post is effectively spot on perfect advice ..
    Good luck to you going forward! :)

    My suggestion is you point Nameservers to dan. and send us a link to your dan portfolio. then we can review your domains, and you wont have to post domain names for google to scan on this thread. or you can PM some of us your dan portfolio link. up to you,

    in fact, I never really tried, never got further than the process of evaluating opportunities for domains. After that point, I'm basically not a seller at all: no marketing skills at all. let you see for my proposition if IM are acepted on this forum. good day

    I don't understand your message what exactly you want to say how we can work together and share ideas. Suppose, I want to sell my domain then,How you can help in that.
