Excellent Domain for Travel Agents.
Will listen to serious offers via PM.
Look at all these threads and hes still not sold it...
that has to be a new record
Yeah the thing is hes still post things like "Will listen to serious offers via PM" like does he even get any PMs
Award to the worst sales man
I dont understand why a domain such as this doesnt sell.
It has great marketing potential. Easy to remember.
Most people going on Foreign Holidays are going for the "Sunny Weather".
I will consider offers in the early-mid £xxx
its the way of the beast.. some names sell some dont.
posting the same name over and over (and then bumping it by saying "will now take £750, now take £500 etc) will only wind people up.
you could try any of the following?:
post on ebay
get sedo to auction and then promote on all forums (+ email travel agents)
put up at a fixed price (dont reduce, dont relist)
try another forum
contact travel agents direct.
or cut your losses and flip the name
hope that helps you a little
Thanks for that Decon I have avoided some of the above methods due to the following.
I have domains listed at Sedo all without prices and they have received litte/no interest. I find that ebay gets you rock bottom prices.
I have tried contacting parties directly informing them of the availability of a particular domain and then, in the vast minority of cases, been accused of spamming! And given the fact that many spammers are being forced to pay out at small claims court I now avoid that route.
I have many domains, which, in my humble opinion, are marketing dreams but admittedly I doubt they receive much traffic. I am led to believe the way most domainers now go about things is to put content on the sites and try and get the sites up the google league table which obviously puts more value onto the domain. Is that right???
Unfortunately for me in addition to my domain pasttime I have 3 jobs, 3 kids under the age of 5 and little or no time in my life. Hence my reason for now just wanting to just dispose of my domains for what I believe to be reasonable prices. I just dont have the time to fill my domains with content and to be honest besides the amateur world of MS Frontpage I havent much of a clue on content. Putting google ads on my domains and earning 5p every other month doesnt really float my boat.
You can almost hear the violin music playing!
Perhaps my best bet would be to sell the lot in bulk to someone who HAS the time?
We are only trying to help... forget that name and move on...
Why dont you try drop catching some better names? www.dropcatcher.co.uk is a great place to start and with deleting.co.uk showing drops in advance there is still hope to make a buck or two!
You tend to register free names that have been sat there since the start of the internet so its very unlikly that someone will be interested.. there are a few domainers that do have that eye for spotting a decent domain sat there free to reg... but in this day of age you will be very lucky indeed to get a half decent "free to reg"
Even try traffic names as they will make you a little cash to feed the little ones and its better if you can get a regular income every month.
Hope this helps and I am glad you are seeing sense
Thanks. I hear what you say. However my approach for the future is just going to revolve around the domains I currently have by way of getting rid of them.
I am looking for an escape route from the industry rather than getting further involved. What would be my chances of listing the 50-80 domains that I want to sell on, someone making a sensible offer and taking them off my hands?
List the domains here and we can pick the bones out of them and perhaps purchase 1 or 2?
You should also be tempted to park the domains you like and think have value and just renew them every 2 years. Someone may come along in 1/5/12 months from now and offer you the money you are looking for.
Flipping domains means they tend to go for small amounts. Selling at £££ prices normally means
a) you have had the domain a while and its a goodun
b) you have caught a cracker
c) someone decides they -need- your domain
This may take sometime and prob wont happen overnight.
