Domain Name Sales is Hiring Inside Domain Broker

23

Jeff Gabriel, Vice President of Sales at Domain Name Sales, just posted an announcement on Facebook to let people know that his company is hiring in house domain brokers. There is one major caveat to this though – employees of Domain Name Sales must work out of the company’s Grand Cayman headquarters.

Here’s how the company describes its ideal candidate for the Inside Technical Sales position:

We imagine you to be well-spoken, well-written, and with better-than-average computer skills. We’d like candidates with a college education or other relevant experience. You should be comfortable using and talking about the internet, comfortable using a Mac, and able to use Microsoft Word and Excel.

Working as a DomainNameSales broker requires excellent communication skills, both on the phone and in email. Our brokers need to be able to close phone sales and manage an inquiry stream using our custom CRM system.

A tech background is always preferred, but we’ll consider automotive and real estate as well. Compensation is based on experience and results. Brokers recieve a base salary, commisions on sales, and full benefits.

  1. This is the future folks – resist the temptation to accept that job waiting on tables for minimum wage, ignore the ‘green’ not-revolution and get on the bus to the real future. Good to see these companies growing and hiring, we need it and we have the talent to fill these positions. Apply and you will succeed!

  2. Frank is great and he’s built a amazing platform..but as a domainer and an investor, when I see that a domain name has a domainnamesales.com landing page, I know it’s going to be price well above what the same name would have fetched at a secondary market auction. That makes it unappealing and is an instant turn off..I rarely even end up making an offer.

    • May be this is a problem in some cases, but lately I saw some real pigeon shits on DNS, and this is an also worse problem. They should put out pigeon shit domains from their platform, at least those that are clearly pigeon shits. This problem is worse than having high standard prices (it is normal having good domains priced higher than pigeon shits) that can discourage prospects….

  3. Regarding RJ’s post. The DNS broker goes to the seller to request asking price, and there are reasonable sellers. So that might be something to keep in mind before automatically seeing lander and not making an offer.

  4. I have more than 800 domains submitted to DomainNameSales and many of them are single words.

    But my portfolio rejected by them. So sad.

  5. now lacks only one thing on DNS, the most important of all: a simple business model, composed by few steps and some standard agreements, to allow buyers to go easily along the Financing Way.

  6. “A tech background is always preferred, but we’ll consider automotive and real estate as well.”

    Does this make anyone else scratch their head……….

    • Paul,

      I think it makes sense. Automotive / real estate professionals typically have great sales experience. Training someone to sell domains instead of cars / homes probably isn’t too hard.

    • Jacob – There are high caliber sales professionals in all industries , particularly software and technology. In my opinion if you can’t attract several A players from A caliber technology/software but rather have to revert to car salesmen then that does not speak highly of the industry. Ultimately, at the end of the day these individuals are taking inbound leads anyways and dealing with volume. If they can sell at high prices to uneducated users then they will live a good life in Cayman, if they don’t they they will be moving back to the mainland in the short order.

  7. The high prices coming out of DNS is intended for the end-user, and that’s the way it should be.

    It’s not a venue for Resellers, who for the most part low-ball.

  8. Its an interesting offer, but I am making a killing moving my own Domains, so the commission structure would have to be impressive in order for me to move to the Cayman Islands! I love Toronto and it would be tough to give up my Toronto Maple Leafs season tickets. If I can set up an International Office here in Toronto with the ability to bring on my own crew, I would consider it.
