My Enduser Sales Tell Me the Economy is Improving

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

The stock market just hit 2 year highs, the Federal Reserve has announced qualitative easing, the republicans retook the house, and unemployment is a little better than expected; but I did not need any of that information to tell me the economy might finally be back on the rise. All I did was talk to a few endusers.

Around three months ago, I sent out lots of emails to potential customers for various domains of mine. I ended up selling two of the names, but for the first time I got 5 or 6 responses that went along the lines of "We are interested in the name, but not at this time. We will contact you when we are." I took this as a no and moved on still happy about my sales.

Now that some had passed last Thursday and Friday I decided to re-email or call all of the people who had said maybe later to my first contact. I sent them all a short email saying the domain is still for sale here is the price.

From the 5 emails and 2 calls I made, I sold 2 more domains. One of the transactions was completed that day and another should be finished up on Monday.

Three months ago small businesses were not confident enough to invest in a domain name and now I believe they feel secure that they will survive and are looking for ways to improve their business. If this is true for more endusers than just the ones I contacted that would be a great thing. Looking around at other sales it seems this might be a trend in the industry.

End User Tip: So if you have had someone turn your enduser sale down and time has passed send them a short email telling them the name is still for sale.

I know that I am going to be spending lots of time today sending out emails!

    While this sales not necessarily anything more then coincidence, i did notice in some SEO and business consulting i do that a lot more business are aware of using domain names as traffic driver then before. We still got long way to go, but one thing is certain, slowly but surely main street is catching up.

    I agree, I have sold a lot more domains in the past 1-2 months. The prices are not higher than usual, and they are all mostly small domains ($500 – $5000), but for some reason things have picked up. I do almost no marketing for my domains, people contact me because I am the owner, so it is not my marketing that has cause the increased sales.

    My sales have gone down. I haven’t made a sale in 6 weeks. Many companies don’t respond to my emails like they used to in the past. I received a handful of rejections.

    However, I’m confident my slow sales period will soon pick up. Maybe I should be holding onto resume, job and education domains instead of trying to sell them.  

    Many companies are buying domain names to forward traffic. Some have too many domains pointing to their website. They should create landing pages with links. These names are essentially being wasted.

    It’s not worth the time to point a quality education domain to a website, especially when the term is not all too popular in the education field. Most companies should havcq marketing team set in place to evaluate marketing metrics. I used to contact companies based on domain forward. The best strategy is to build value into landing pages.

    The economy is still slow. Companies are still being frugal. While a few companies understand domain forwarding and landing pages, others are not education enough to buy domains. Their excuse is that they already have a website, and don’t see the name offered as a site containing traffic and backlinks.

    Many elite domainers selling quality names never do any work to their domain portfoilio. Their names are parked, don’t have links, and only a portion of the sites have a GPR and Alexa.

    In essence, retain education, resume and job domains. Stock up on the .com, and offer the .net to companies. Buy .info to sell once the economy picks up. There are many .info that have made 2-10 times the cost of registration on clicks. One .info was flipped in 10 days from registration for a nice gain.

    Sales have been slow for me because I need to offer different domains to companies. It’s not a good time to sell resume and educations. Job domains will be worth more in the next 6 months. I made back half of registration on a few job .com domains.

    Even the .us have been good. I have some good sales techniques in mind. They will allow me to make some sales. Cool article. Good luck.
