I noticed a new Afternic “domain for sale” landing page I thought I would share with readers. As you can see below, the landing page does not have any pay per click advertising (PPC) on it, and the lander makes it very clear that the domain name is for sale. You can visit Stallions.com to have a look at the landing page in action.
On the top of the landing page, you can see the call to action with a phone number to call an Afternic sales associate. Afternic likes to encourage people to call rather than submit their contact information via form. Their sales team is likely very strong on the phone, and getting someone to call is a good way for the company to sell its domain names.
If a visitor clicks on the “Inquire Today!” button (or if they scroll down), they are taken to a form to fill out. My guess is Afternic will attempt to call the prospective buyer if a phone number is left, or the team will follow up via email if there is no contact phone number.
I reached out to Paul Nicks, GM of GoDaddy’s Aftermarket, and he told me this landing page is new and is not publicly available for Afternic clients at this time. NameFind is using this for sale landing page on some of its higher value domain name assets they would prefer to focus on selling rather than monetizing via PPC. Paul did say the landing page could be an option for Afternic clients in the future if there is a demand for it.
