    Hi.
    I'm an absolute beginner in this field. I've collected domains, but can't figure out where to sell them. Tried to sell on Flippa and this forum. Where else can I try to sell them and do they have any value at all? They are registered on Dynadot. I would evaluate them like this:

    CarInsuranceVirginiaBeach.com - $10
    MarineWeatherForecast.com - $30
    PlumberHere.com - $100
    MoverNearYou.com - $70
    WeightLossWithDiet.com - $50
    FixerHere.com - $80
    PainterHere.com - $80
    THCvsCBD.com - Sold - $4

    My strategy is to sell domains quickly. Do I need to change my strategy for long-term selling and continue recruiting new domains to my list?

    The 'profession'here domains may be worth something as a brandable franchise.

    There are a few others with potential.

    The issue with listing your names here on NP is that you are marketing to resellers who won't pay top dollar.

    You want to market to end users. There are lots of threads on NP about doing this. You are just going to have to dive in and read, and put some effort into doing outbound marketing if you want to make some quick sales. Otherwise, be prepared to sit and wait for sales/offers to come to you.

    Craig but for outbound marketing we need connections right... I tried selling one or 2 domains with exact key match but they are not interested

    Not necessarily. You are just going to have to do the work of contacting potential end users.

    Alternatively, be prepared to sit on domains for years until someone who wants them comes to you.

    It's that simple or hard ;)

    I understood it. How can I sell domains in this level to resellers? I want get money for up to new level. Where I can find resellers, besides this forum and flippa? I've tried selling to end users. I searched for them in Google and sent emails. Or are there other ways?

    "There are a few others with potential." - What domains are you talking about?

    List Your Domains At top Aftermarket like Afternic, sedo.

    make for sale landing page with dan.

    and for few months i suggest you to read , read, read before buy buy buy

    consume content regarding domain from experts , read articles, listen podcast.And one thing for sure which i understood early is the fact that domain is not a get rich quick. its like any other real business which takes effort, hardwork ,dedication, patience .

    Hey, Quick heads up.

    Even if it seems like an OK combo - 3 word names are far more difficult to sell. You are most likely to sell names that are .com, 7 or less letters long, best if 1 word or brandable (but 2 word is fine). Dont take that as quality of name doesn't matter - it's most important - then the actual stats can be applied.

    Your plumber/painter here names are not bad - but wont be fast sellers. Resellers prob wouldn't be looking for the rest of those names as they would be a slow, long, low dollar sale.

    It's best to worry less about spending a ton of time trying to sell what you have - & look to get prepared to make a future purchase that will offer you better flip ops.

    But, none the less, I would list them on Afternic - give them all a 99 or 129 or what ever amount you want BIN. Afternic has the widest audience (it's GoDaddy) & trusted by non-domainer, domain buyers.

    Best of luck - & there are lots of free guides on my site, fell free to check them out.

    Paying for a premium listing is a good investment.

    Names like these are EXTREMELY easy to find. This speaks volumes about price.

    If I had them (in your shoes cause I don't buy stuff like this), I would list them on Afternic/Sedo with $75 / EUR 75 for a quick flip. Also try $99 and $199 but NOT more. If they don't sell come down ot $75 and see where it goes.

    Use the lowest price point registrar; Sav might be your friend in your line. Otherwise overall you'll be losing money due to sales ratio (%).

    There is money to be made in 3-4 words but not everyone nails outbound (I personally hate it) AND if you don't, the above pricing might still lead you somewhere. If not for profit at least you can use this for covering your costs and your outbounds will be profit.

    You're a beginner and these are beginner choice' domains, but at least it seems to me you might get better on the long run at this game. Good luck.

    At least he stuck to
    .com
    No hyphens
    No #
    No Psuedo-ext. I actually see a “Sold” for $4. Not bad. Better than most. And a 3word DN.

    My point, dont pay fiends GD for “premium” it’s like paying them for a reserve, or auction and anything else want, like DC if <500 >.> DNs. That shouldnt be the industry norm.
    Good ones sell themselves, it’s not about him.

    It should all be free... Dont pay for “premium” but you can try, nothing in life’s guaranteed

    Thanks! I bought new domains:

    BTCdisplay.com
    GoldPlumber.com
    WhitePlumber.com
    NameASAP.com

    Am I heading in the right direction or are these bad names too?

    These are worse in my opinion (read: worthless). So not the right direction.

    You should stop buying, start selling and especially learn. Read NP from A to Z.

    Do have to mention - it may be interesting to see the kind of "messages" you would get selling White Plumber.

    Keeping in mind societal, cultural or even (more simply) sensitive topics in general when buying names in important.

    Keep in mind every name is meant to represent the "Brand", spirit, & the customer base they want to attract. So, you need to think from a start up business mind frame, need to stand out (Brand), but ensure an image & message that All customers can connect with (or at least not offend).

    make sense? not meant to be a political view in any way - this a marketing, branding, business success point of view - &&& meant to apply globally (that's why some name are so very expensive)

    I was about to say that as well, as I noticed it. But a headache beat me to it so I had to rest. Glad you answered it cause it was pretty obvious as domainers need to be very careful with that side of things.

    Edit: Note #2: OP keep in mind, domain buyers tend to take things literally in most cases for meaningful 2-words (not straight brandables). So "gold plumber" will be mostly seen as some plumber using gold for pipes, which ain't the case. "Good plumber" etc is a far better option as it is straightforward. I'm not a native English speaker but still I have to observe such things as well. (obviously)

    Mric! I wish you great success in your new domaining venture. As someone who has sold lots of names over the years, I've always looked for the shortest most meaningful names that are descriptive. I'd suggest saving as much money as you can by selling names and whatever other means possible to buy a really good name to either sell outright or develop to capitalize on.
    Good luck!
    Mike
