If your selling .uk domains, you probably won't get a better auction platform than DomainLore for the most exposure.

Just watching the second name I've put on there about to go without a bid (Expertly.co.uk). Would have thought it was worth 50 minimum to someone!

I'm afraid if you look around at all the various selling platforms (including threads on here), sales are pretty tough across the board.

Stuff I could sell by auction on domainlore 18 months ago for xxx wouldn't receive a bid at the moment.

I sold a few recently via Domain Lore and Sedo.

The Sedo ones were without any promo - just listing them there at a fixed price got results.

Domain Lore is hit or miss. There is a registration fee so it's just a numbers game. Sales cover the cost of the ones that don't get bids.

I also got results for .com and .org by emailing potential buyers and linking them to Go Daddy - also listing my site for sale while creating content and building links to it (this helps to create page rank and increases it's value)

Can't claim to be a guru in domain sales compared to others on this forum but fixed price, contacting end users, building sites and generating traffic/page rank for the domain - those have worked for me in the past.

Buyers are becoming more educated and therefore more selective.
