Have You Used a Video to Sell a Domain Name?


I haven’t tried this method before, but I heard about someone using a YouTube video to try and close a domain sale, and I thought it was interesting. The domain name listed for sale in the video is Electronic.com, and there is a link to its Sedo sales listing below the video.

Personally, I don’t like the quality of the video and think it might be more effective if there was some information about the domain name and keyword, and perhaps a bit of information on why someone would want to buy Electronic.com. The video sort of looks amateur-ish, although the idea is pretty good.

If the owner is uncomfortable speaking on camera, perhaps he could create a script and hire a model (not necessarily someone who looks good, but someone who looks professional at least). Once that is done, the video link could be emailed to prospective buyers to gauge their interest in the domain name.

What are your thoughts on using a video like this to sell a domain name, and how would you make it better? BTW, this isn’t my video and I have no idea who owns the domain name.

  1. Might work for domains especially ones that appeal to a larger audience.
    I used Animoto before to create professional looking videos and I think it would do a good job creating domain videos as well. In addition, I would have a look at a good voiceover service at Fiverr.

  2. This is interesting! I think it could help you get extra attention for your domain, plus 50% of all internet traffic is video related.

    Video will always increase conversion, but best of all you can mention several paragraphs worth of information in under 30 seconds.

    I am going to try this!
