You can handle your fresh leads and they’ll take your stale ones.
A common complaint about domain name marketplaces is that your parked domain names are generated all of their leads. Why should you pay the marketplace when someone first expresses interest by clicking a link on your parked domain name?
Frank Schilling’s DomainNameSales.com announced a new brokerage service today that is the best of both worlds for those that want first crack at selling their own domains without commission.
Basically, DomainNameSales.com will offer follow up on any of your stale leads (i.e. greater than 30 days).
This is something DNS is good at. I have a number of domain names parked with them and use their brokerage service. They still occasionally reach out to leads that went stale months ago. Although none of these old leads have converted into a sale for me, customers don’t really take a risk by having DNS follow up on them.
On a less exciting note, the company upped its brokerage fee from 10% to 12.5%. That’s still much lower than what competitors charge.
