    Does anyone have views on the new DAN "For Sale" landing page?

    Personally I think it's cluttered and ugly. The new information boxes describing the seller and the DAN expert look more spivvy than reassuring, and – worst of all – they distract attention away from the "Make an offer" (or "Buy now") box, which is where I really want visitors to be focusing!

    And we can't opt to keep the old-style landing page via settings.

    I thought I'd wait a few days before telling DAN, as perhaps it'll grow on me (although I don't think it will).

    Also, I don't want to make a fuss if most people on here think it's an improvement ... which is why I'm posting this question.

    I wasn't that keen on it to start with but the more I look at it the more I`m getting used to it, plus since the change Iv`e sold a name and had a few offers on there so dont see it putting buyers off.
    I dont have a background image so I think that helps.

    Thanks boxerdog. I do have a background image, which I was rather pleased with (I know, it's sad, isn't it?) but with the new landing page it looks worse than having no background image at all.

    Perhaps if I can't get used to it I'll remove the background image.

    I'm reassured that you've had a sale and some offers since they introduced the new one.

    I guess it depends on the image, I couldn't find any I liked so just gave up

    Mine's just a dark blue rectangle that I designed myself. (Yes, I really am THAT talented!)

    Seriously though, it still looks fine on phone view – which is probably how most people will first get to see it – so I probably won't make a fuss.

    Interesting discussion, as all my names are at DAN, mostly. Will have to see how it pans out.

    Just to make you aware dan has made some changes, if you go into your settings/for sale page near the bottom you can now select what you want to apear in the box on your landing page.

    True, but you can't get rid of the 2 new boxes altogether.

    But it doesn't really matter that much – I'm getting used to the changes and they don't seem to be harming people's sales!

    True but its a change, i didn't like it showing how many domains i had sold so i ask them to remove it yesterday and they Implemented this today so at least they are listening which is a good thing.

    Thanks – it's certainly a change for the better. I appreciate your drawing it to my attention.

    As I've yet to sell a name on DAN (I've only been with them a very short time), one of my pre-set display options would be "Delivers within about 50 years". I certainly won't be displaying that one!

    That's good to know. I suppose having a bit of information on the seller and the DAN expert makes the whole thing look a bit more reassuring to buyers – and although I didn't like the look of new page when I first saw it I'm OK with it now.
