Mike Mann’s DomainMarket.com sold around $36,000 in publicly reported domain sales last week. The high sale of the week was ThreeDiamond.com, which was sold for $10,000. The Whois has not changed for many of these domain names yet, since they are likely pending transfer.
One thing I think Mann does right is that each domain name resolves to a “for sale” landing page, which also has sponsored results PPC links. I would bet that many small business owners have no clue about the Whois database, and they visit the domain name they are interested in buying to see if it’s available. With a huge “Buy” call to action right on the page, it’s easy to see the domain name is for sale.
This is something you might want to consider on your low revenue, undeveloped domain names that you’re looking to sell.
