    If I need monies immediately or want to get rid of a name, to investor.

    If I want to realize the full potential(per my judgment), to end user.

    Only end-users, they pay a lot more for domains.

    Most good sales will happen from an inbound end user, followed by an outbound end user and after that to a domain investor.

    The issue is that the inbound end user can come today or in 10 years or never even if you have a great domain.

    End user: May take days or weeks to complete the transaction but you will make profit with the sale
    Investor: Nickel and Dime until you lose your money and called themselves "Reseller".

    I don't care who you are as long as I get what I am asking for.

    I'm going to use the approach of it depends on your circumstance. If you want to liquidate, need the money in your personal life, need capital to buy other domains...whatever it may be, an investor may be the best option. If you don't need the money "now", have capital reserved for other domains, pretty comfortable with things, don't mind a bit of a wait...then end user

    It can be a fine line of separation between the two. An end user is investing in their name. An investor is the end user until they sell. Being said, depending on name I will wait out the right buyer which, from my own experience, generally turns out to be end users.

    Just some advice that may help

    The #1 most important thing is to contact the right person at the company, the decision maker...I use LinkedIn mainly to find the right person to contact..

    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
    You can also google "@CompanyName.com" and more often than not, you can find someone else's email from that company and then just use that email format with the person's name.

    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, BDM 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
