I'm also facing same issue currently 500 names outstanding.
I think some folks have abused the option to list unregistered domains and have been submitted huge lists hoping they will get approved. I hope squad help does away with the option
@JudgeMind Thanks for sharing and starting this thread. I was about to start when I just found it. I have known this site for many years actually but never joined it until the end of last month. I submitted some names that where not listed anymore in other marketplaces and got them accepted. I have no sales with them yet, but the action on the names have been very big with a lot of shortlists and strong buyer interest.
The logos are not that good I know ,but for something free, they are very acceptable, and to request a redo, you have to pay for it. I believe soon it will have a lot of domains as they just opened VIP section for those with big portfolios who want to move all their names to them using their nameservers and of course they demand exclusivity.
Looking at the names they have in their marketplace , there are no names with BIG pricing, and also if you want to submit names in what they call under BASIC LISTING PLUS ( which allows you to submit names to contests), the maximum price you can set is 1799.
I noticed that most endusers there want available to hand reg names and are not after premium names as I checked many of the names that were chosen as contest winning. I have seen that many names also sit at pending sale, but I believe it remains like this when there is an installments deal agreed on.
A good thing about participating in contests is that you can actually win something even when the contest is abandoned as per their Award Distribution Policy.
Support is great specially Jade who is always available to answer all kinds of questions and solve all problems. Deni has also been pretty good.
The contests are very exciting and interesting and it appears there are many talented people participating. What I like most about the contests is that the CH normally is unpredictable, by that I mean, there has been times when I was expecting to get a certain name LIKED or LOVED while others I submitted I did not rate them that much due to them being madeups, but the madeup name gets the LIKE or LOVE. So you cannot easily expected what the CH might like.
Marking the name as sale pending is a great feature too and they still allow other potential buyers to inquire about it incase the sale doesnt go well.
All in all , SH seems to be fantastic and what I like the most is that like BrandPa (@Jowita Emberton ) you get to see how many times your name has been shortlisted by potential buyers.
@JudgeMind congrats on the sale, the name means Teacher in Arabic btw.
Squadhelp is a very competitive marketplace.
They promote your names across all major marketing channels (e.g. Google, Facebook, Quora, Twitter). Squadhelp also makes a significantly higher marketing investment compared to any other Brandable domain marketplace or naming platform, which results in the most platform traffic in the industry.
I agreed that support is really great!
Installment plans also increase domain purchases, so its win win for domainers and the end user.
For now i have around 207 domains on Squadhelp marketplace, and succesfully sold 11 domains.
and i just sold 1 domain just yesterday!
Here some of my domains:
How long have you been with them and how long have you had 200 ish domains in their marketplace? Nice to hear you got 11 sales so far. Is that in one year?
11 domains thats in 2 years ( but really the domains was very few at first, actively and increase the domain list since 2018 ). I consider myself a bit late, others may sold 10 - 20 domains in a year, crazy!
You know everytime i click on websites, like any websites, i see squadhelp advertisement. Squadhelp is like everywhereeee i go looool. Very massive digital marketing strategy.
That's actually remarketing, when you land on their website you get retargeted everywhere, but they are really investing a lot of money for sure
Move from BP not from BB,
is it normal to get shortlisted so soon ? i just joined this week and have a few premiums shortlisted, some more than 1. also few in top 10% with flame icon.
just would prefer to know if its meh, versus super positive. thank you.
I would also like to know more about this, as one of my domains was shortlisted 2 times in the last 2-3 days.
For those of us on here who have sold domain names on SH Marketplace, kindly let us know how long it took you to complete a sale from date of it going live in SH Marketplace.
For this one mudaris when I enter the URL it goes to a SquadHelp landing page. So, to list at SH must park the domain with them?
If so how do you know your sale had anything to do with SH? and not just someone landing on your name.
Are all your SH “listed” domains parked with SH?
If you gotta use their landing pages then we’re back to the old UnDeveloped debate as to whether inquiries / sales have anything at all to do with a marketplace. In the case of UnDeveloped their marketplace itself has about zero traffic compared to say Afternic Sedo DomainAgents DynaDot marketplaces.
I see a major problem with one of your listings, which is Lnvex and not invex (dot com). The logo says invex.
The logo says l
Hit the speak through button under the logo, it’s pronounced Linvex but spelt without the i
Some names listed on sh are not spelled the same way they are pronounced, so they included the speak through option
As for the logo, I agree it is a bit misleading, though I don’t have control over the logo design. I will identify this to SH support and see if they will redesign something
Yes you need to use their landers. I specifically know this sale came through SH as it is a name I submitted to a contest and the contest holder chose it. Thanks
Perhaps. But anyway if you want to believe that there is a sufficient benefit to paying anyone 35% for a landing page that’s your choice. I guess UnDeveloped is no longer the most expensive escrow on the planet. SquadHelp just unearthed their crown by a large percentage. Because verifiably all SH is providing is a landing page and escrow service for...35%. The rest is possibly all unverifiable hype.
Until SH allows listing without using their landing pages we can’t even know if they have any organic activity in their marketplace or not.
Since they’ve apparently gotten to where they’re accepting most any domain
and require exclusivity
there will be no way to know if a given domain is getting exposure due to its name (landing page) or anything at all due to SH marketplace. Will be no way to compare. They really want to lock you in.
I strongly disagree that all you get with SH is a lander. The communication with end users at your finger tips and the ability to submit your domains is a niche contest is paramount. Yes their commission is higher than BB but there’s no fee to list and theirs no fee for a logo creator so there commission overall is the same or less than BB in the end.
As I recall, SquadHelp started out as a crowd sourcing platform through which companies or people may post contests for their naming and branding projects.
Then I guess they morphed into allowing selective domains to be sold on the website as well.
And now they are apparently allowing anyone who submits to list for sale, but requiring that you use their landing pages, and list exclusively with them. At a 35% fee.
To me, that progression speaks volumes. Good or bad progression, you have to decide for yourself.
Wait up a minute...
They accepted domain names that are NOT registered?
This is also normal at other domain selling sites?
THAT. IS. FREAKING. SICK.
For people to sell domains NOT registered!
If they were smart they'd reg. them first to make sure it's still sale-able
Thanks for the informative thread Judgemind, I guess the 1600+ plus NP views has created a bit of a surge to tryout their services.
I find that whole idea of acceptance of domains you haven't even registered very bazaar. I can just imagine.the "I've just listed a domain - And now it's been taken" complainers. Maybe it's just an oversight by them, otherwise their likely to end up with thousands of unregistered domains and then undermine their own service credibility. Even Sedo do their occasional checks
I think some people missed the info but when you submit an unregistered domain they will give an option to choose: they register the domain and give 35% or you can register it and they give 65% if i remember
I've used SquadHelp for a few months now and have had a great experience. I was skeptical as first if they were legit but won a contest and got paid out as promised. The team there (Jonathan, Grant, Janice and others) have been excellent to work with. Definitely recommend it!
