XYZ Looking to Hire a Domain Sales Executive

5

Have you excelled at selling domain names but don’t have the bankroll to build your own portfolio? The XYZ Registry is looking to hire a Domain Sales Executive, according to a tweet posted by the company today.

Here’s an excerpt about the job scope taken from the job listing:

“XYZ is looking for an experienced, highly motivated professional to serve as a Domain Sales Executive. We are seeking someone who is passionate about sales, has great interpersonal skills, and is highly organized. The selected candidate will play a key role in accomplishing both long and short-term goals to support the continued growth of the company.”

XYZ operates the .XYZ domain name extension, and it also operates more than 30 other domain extensions like .Hosting, .Tickets, .Car, and many more. The company recently acquired ten additional extensions that had been operated by UNR.

In short, the primary focus of the job is to help sell the company’s registry-reserved domain names. The person who is hired will also become an evangelist of sorts for the new gTLDs. Attending conferences and trade shows is one function of the job.

This job is for someone with domain industry experience and expertise as one of the job requirements is “2+ years of domain sales experience.” Someone who has excelled at selling domain names but who may not have the bankroll to purchase domain names speculatively as investments would be well suited for the job. The Sales Executive who is hired for this role will have the opportunity to sell some of the best domain names in XYZ-operated extensions.

    • Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t think the registry premium names maintained by the registry resolve to a landing page. For instance, 123.xyz is a premium that is listed for sale via GoDaddy for $54,999. If you were to visit 123.xyz to see what is there because you want to buy it, the domain name doesn’t resolve to anything. I believe Swetha’s names resolve to Dan.com landing pages, making the purchase process a bit easier.

      • I think someone who is interested in buying 123.xyz will do a little research to see if it is available. Just go to godaddy (namecheap, namesilo, gen…) and see if it is available.
        “If I want to buy a model of shoes and I can’t find them in one store, I’ll look for them in another store”. I don’t think this is very complicated.
        I do not find it consistent that 123.xyz needs outbound marketing and pluto.xyz (same price but lower quality), only needs a landing page.
