    Hello
    I wonder if their "harassment" strategy leads to more sales. I imagine it does (otherwise why would they keep doing it?) like pressure-selling on the door-step - which is why governments ban it, as no change to make a rational decision.

    Uniregistry Stephen Mathias was one of the worst, so many emails "harassing". Would be interesting to know how many deals they make, by chasing people at 3, 6, 12 month periods though.

    I was not talking about future reminders every few months, but 2-3 sometimes 4 emails a week after the inquiry. Some of the potential buyers are so angry when they get those endless emails, that they say explicitelly they want to be removed from the future Mailing lists. Maybe that works on the large sscale, but to some buyers may sound pathetic, pushy and desperate.

    Even though most of my Uniregistry-broker-powered sales happen either soon after an initial contact or do not happen at all, I had at least one sale occured after 6+ months, and I think it was sold by another broker (not original one) due to brokers automated rotation.

    So the follow-up strategy must be working.

    Uni has one of the best set up for landing sales pages that get it done when it come to obtaining prospects that lead to buyers and making good sales. I just wish it had a better tracking system as to the traffic you get on each specific domain you have.

    Knowing how many visitors, new visitors and returning visitor is crucial in order to increase the perceived value of a domain.

    parking reports are unnecassarily un-complete
    worst in industry
    waisting my time in csv

    and :

    Really $100 USD threshold?
    Plus $100 USD (another) for referrals?

    that sucks a lot

    Alot of those emails are automated, so it's kind of like a free 15% anytime someone bites.

    Can you imagine have tens of thousands of old inquiries, and have a few bites a week, really helps the bottom line for sure.

    Really if you know your domain, the market, and can negotiate, you are your own self broker, no need to pay anyone 15-20%, which is alot of money when you are doing deals in the thousands.

    I don't know many industries where brokers take 20% of the sellers asset, only in domaining, do we continue to allow this.

    Well, zero sales from 44 leads is pretty terrible Uniregistry! A sales enquiry must be good for a sale... or were you asking very high prices? Most businesses will pay at least 500-10000 USD for a good domain.

    Could I broaden this out, into who are the market leading domain negotiators? Flippa and Sedo don't have any "active brokers" do they? I just get messages, and need to make my own counters (no opportunity to offer comparables etc). Maybe Afternic is market leader?

    Uniregistry has made mid 5 figures of commissions off me this year so far:
    Sedo does have account managers, and 1-2 brokers I believe who handle the one word generic stuff. Account managers will throw themselves into a negotiation from time to time.

    I think right now Afternic thru Godaddy has access to some of the better end users who reach out thru the Godaddy channel, there are some very pure end users, who are willing to spend. Joe Styler has made improvements to payouts, and worked out some kinks, but there is still some more work to do in improving the platform.

    Awesome! Well done :) Are you able to share (or PM) some of the names you have sold?

    Most of those sales are mark monitor or safe name sales where I guess the contacts just bypassed the lander, and called into a broker. So if you get a phone inquiry thru a broker, just play it like it is a serious inquiry.

    Will do, thanks

    Do you have your names listed "Buy It Now" or "Make Offer?

    Make offer on most, more times of none bin will come back to haunt you, but it is helpful in some cases. Depends on the caliber of the name, but as we saw from the myworld sale, sky can be the limit sometimes.
