One thing I’ve found interesting when sending emails to end user buyers is that they often visit the domain name that is being sold and contact me through the contact form on the landing page. I don’t know if they are doing this to verify the legitimacy of my email or if they simply want to see what’s happening on the landing page.
With that in mind, I am going to try something a bit new as I try to sell StartupConsulting.com.
This afternoon, I am going to begin the process of contacting end user buyers for StartupConsulting.com. I plan to test out the Estibot Lead Generation tool as well as do my own research to find potential buyers for this domain name. As usual, I do not plan to price the domain name in my emails to buyers, and I hope to start a conversation with a few potential buyers that will lead to competitive offers for the domain name.
Instead of keeping a standard Internet Traffic parked page, I built a landing page for the domain name using my corporate website as a template. My goal is to give a bit more legitimacy to the email. In addition, I think that there is the potential for the domain name to come up in Google (eventually) when people search “startup consulting,” and if it doesn’t sell this week, perhaps someone will find it when they are doing market intelligence to see where they rank and/or where competitors rank.
Frankly, this domain name doesn’t earn very much revenue, which is not a surprise. Because of that, I am not losing anything by taking away the parked page and making it a domain name for sale landing page.
As you could probably tell, it took less than 30 minutes to create the bare bones landing page. Perhaps I will make some changes and enhancements to it to help sell it. At this point, I am content with the simplicity of it, and I will let you know how my end user outreach goes.
If you have any suggestions to improve the landing page, I would be interested in reading them.
