I was just informed that there are going to be some noticeable changes at Sedo, and I want to let you know about them in case you are a regular Sedo buyer or seller. From my own experience, when a company changes the design and/or functionality of a website, it can be frustrating, so take a look at what you can expect to see when you visit Sedo after the re-launch.
Here’s what Sedo has to say about the changes that are coming today:
An Enhanced Version of Dropdown Navigation Returns to Sedo!
We’ve had a lot of feedback from our customers in the last two years following our website redesign. One of the major pieces of feedback we received is that our members prefer the classic style of navigation, featuring dropdown menus rather than a horizontal tab structure. That’s why we’ve decided to bring back an enhanced dropdown structure. This will make it easier for all members and visitors to the site to find what they need quickly, easily, and in the way they’ve asked for.
A New Homepage Design Puts Domains and Accounts at Buyer’s Fingertips
Starting with our .com site, we’re testing a new and simplified homepage. This test will enable us to better meet our visitors’ needs and empower customers to access domain listings and their accounts without distraction. Visitors to the US homepage of Sedo’s website will see either the current homepage, or this new version. We’re excited for the results of this test!
Expanded Reach Makes Sedo the Premier Choice for Listing Domains for Sale
All domain listings are automatically promoted across Sedo’s Domain Marketplace, including the SedoMLS Promotion Network. This expanded reach will help all sellers connect more readily with potential buyers and can help to increase the rate of sale.
Promotion Levels Make It Easy to Optimize Domain Listings
With the new marketplace come new promotional options, including SedoMLS Premium for eligible domains. We’ve introduced an easy and intuitive way for all sellers to check each domain’s promotional level at a glance and make changes to optimize exposure. You can find this new feature in Domain Management. Once all four bars are filled on the green gauge, a domain has reached maximum promotion and has the greatest chances of selling.
Fixed Prices are now Buy Now Prices for a Clearer Marketplace
We’re making things more consistent for buyers and sellers throughout our marketplace. From now on, fixed prices will be known as Buy Now prices, and those domains will be available to others as Buy Now listings. These listings receive exclusive promotion in our marketplace and are preferred in Sedo’s marketing, such as the monthly newsletter and cross-promotions with partners. Further, buyers can shop for domains with confidence and without the guesswork.
