Free service finds potential buyers for your domain names.
Sure, you can sit on your domain portfolio and wait for the right buyer to come along. But you’ll sell a lot more domains if you actually try to sell them.
The big challenge is finding qualified buyers for your domains.
That’s a problem that LeadRefs.com is trying to solve.
Just plug in a domain name and it searches for potential buyers of your domain name. For example, plug in TradingDerivatives.com and some of the leads returned are emails for ertradingderivatives.com and starttradingderivatives.com.
Most of the hits are for owners of similar domain names. However, the site also finds Twitter users that may be interested in your domains.
Estibot offers a similar lead generation service, which finds owners of similar domains as well as advertisers bidding on the key term.
Now before I recommend LeadRefs.com I want to discuss a big caveat: be careful about domain sales spam.
It’s becoming a big problem. Some of it is misleading (especially regarding expired domains) while other is just annoying. The problem, as I see it, is when people use automated systems to email potential buyers of domain names. They don’t check the quality of the leads and send out what is essentially spam to dozens of unqualified leads.
I’d also be careful about contacting someone on Twitter. I’ve received solicitations for domains before and usually report the user as spam.
I’m all for proactive selling of domains. Just don’t take shortcuts.
