    I'm just curious. How do you present your domains for sale?

    For example, do you have a portfolio site with all your domains listed? If so, do you list them alphabetically? By category/niche/genre? Some other way?

    Do you present other related domains to the particular domain name somebody's looking at?

    Do you reveal an asking price, guide price, minimum price or price range?

    Do you "pretend" that the other domains in your portfolio don't exist i.e. do you present the site as if you've only got THAT particular domain for sale?

    Or perhaps you keep things even vaguer, or don't list them for sale at all?

    Rather than limiting replies artificially with a poll, I thought I'd keep this free-form so that we can get some feedback going.

    Myself, I present the domain name that the visitor actually went to in order to reach the Memorable Domains site inserted into the content of the front page (using simple PHP string insert function which reads the domain out of the URL and bungs it into the text). I offer two lists, one of all my names in alphabetic format, and one of all my names grouped into over 100 categories. NOTE: 99%+ of my domains redirect to Memorable Domains, though I park a handful of high-traffic names.

    How about you?

    I currently list all of my domains with Sedo and leave the price unspecified so users can make an offer of their choosing. What I'd really like to move to would be Sedo style adverts but with a discrete Make an Offer link directed to my own site - if anyone knows any companies that facilitate this and pay fair rates for parking I'd be very intersted to hear.

    Namedrive will do this if your portfolio is big enough, and you ask nicely iirc :)

    Good question Edwin. I have no coherent strategy at all, so will be following this thread closely. After your having mentioned it, I'm thinking perhaps to point them all to a 'for sale' site of some sort and bypass what meagre parking revenue I 'enjoy'.

    I used to use Sedo, but parking revenue has dropped of a vertical cliff.

    One thing I found since using them all to redirect to my own page is that I get a lot more speculative offers on domains. Some of the lower XXX domains are getting more interest.

    Those are the names people couldn't bother registering with Sedo to make an offer on.

    Plus the delay in responses on parking companies isn't good. Sometimes 24 hour delay between sending and receiving messages isn't helpful and not professional when tryiong to sell a name.

    All my domains redirect to this page, and their is a google search box on there so it still brings in some revenue, not much but still more than parking, in fact double.

    With a portfolio as big as yours Edwin, I would definitely recommend setting up your own portfolio site. I would also list all my domains with sedo (you can do this without parking them there) with a link to your site as well.
