Basically what hat I do is:
1) Look for simillar domains and extensions & Conduct searches in SEs for related websites.
2) With this I compile a Email list of potential interest buyers (based on website or WHOIS contacts).
3) Then I set the name on auction (no FSBO).
4) Right after setting up the domain auction I send out a mail to each identified potential buyer, and inform them about the auction.
(1 by 1 and personalized for each buyer)
Important in my experience is, that if you want to attend a decent sales price is to set up the auction BEFORE you mail the potential buyers. This has the effect, that it puts indirect pressue on buyers (bid now or you never have a chance again)
A FSBO mail to a potential buyer has not much effect, or you just receive a bunch of real low offers.
It is advisable, to do this only for domains w/o or low potential trademark conflicts.

You might contact 30 companies and not receive any interest. Don't fret, move on to the next domain.dgridley said:People who contact you are much more likely to purchase than anyone you approach...
- Send out personalized Emails 1 by 1 (Dear Mr. Buck Fush, ......)zquest said:However, can you plese share with us how you get over worrying about people assuming you are a SPAMmer and repoprting you
If you go for end users I would suggest using Ebay.JeeJee said:...
Finally, i intend to send email out to invite the potential customers to bid for the item in 10s so that they know i am actually sending the email to a few people. Then they'll at least check the listing. Should i put a reserve price on this one?
