So many domainers just sit on a variety of different types of domains waiting for offers. A lot of times they’ll also try seeking out potential end users (usually in vain). The secret is to focus and put all of your domains in a niche under one roof. Drive potential buyers in that niche to your stable of domains. Then you’re not relying on that rare type-in from a buyer who thought up the name on their own or lost in a sea of a million domain names at one of the three biggies.
To that end, I created BuyNamez to be the place to buy cool brand name .com’s. But it’s not just for my .com’s as it almost entirely is now. I’m opening it up so any domainer can send me their cool .com’s (to domains -at- ideastormz.com) and I’ll add them in and promote them for you free (you can still list them on all the other marketplaces too – no exclusivity). But you better share the love when they sell! And, yes, I get to make the judgment on whether any .com submitted is cool or not.
But it’s not enough to just have a niche domain marketplace. You have to spread the word about it to get them in front of the right buyers. That’s why I’m promoting these cool .com’s not just on BuyNamez but rotating them as “Cool Site Ideas” on my brainstorming community, IdeaStormz, for more visibility. I think of domains as creativity in its purest form and these .com’s are a great source of ideas for people looking to build new websites, apps and blogs.
Now we can get our cool brands in front of the creatives who can make something happen and put them to work. Too many amazing .com’s are being wasted, parked and unused, gathering dust in our portfolios. I saw the other day one of the ultimate domains out there was simply PARKED! Unbelievable. It got me thinking what a shame it is domainers are sitting on so many killer brands that are completely languishing. The way I see it, it’s time we get our best .com’s seen by the decision makers and, as Eric Clapton would say, change the world.
