Barry, I’ve got about 20 or so I’d like to sell, too. Been busy this year slapping up simple websites for them and getting at least some traffic for them, as my research of those selling these on Flippa sounded like the best route for me.
But I haven’t done a thing about this yet. Flippa sellers tell me this is easy peasy there, but quite honestly… haven’t had time to even look into it.
But now that 2012′s closing out, I’ve put it on my agenda this month to close out those 20+ before I pay for them again in January. Plus, I’d like the extra money for Christmas .
From the stories of Flippa sellers, I’d definitely ad all the marketing info, demographics, analytics, marketing ideas, etc. you can to the sales copy. You never know what will peak the interest of a buyer. While they may not be interested in the name itself, it could be the keywords you use for that site dovetails into their own niche and that’s the only reason they’d look twice at you. From that point, they’ll look at how they can content load and monetize your domain/site their way.
So definitely… slap something up on that domain quick, especially if it’s an aged domain. An aged domain is far less valuable than a younger one that paints a better picture of what can be done with it. What’s gonna show up on a Wayback Machine? An active site, a parked site or nothing? I’d take active or parked over nothing any day.
And while you’re emailing, share your keyword statistics, suggested content sources, and analytics, if you can. A name’s just a name, unless you show them how powerful and profitable it could be.
Just my thoughts…
