I have purchased dozens of good domain names over the years, but haven't sold a great one before. But one of my companies is trying to sell the directory.net domain name.
From your experience, what is the best way to sell a good domain name like this? Should we list it on various broker sites (like greatdomains.com), hire a professional broker, or what?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm halfway done re-reading Permission Marketing by Seth Godin, the classic text (written in 1999) for internet marketers. This time, in good Tim Sanders fashion, I'm marking the book up like crazy and making it mine. Permission Marketing was very influential at MyFamily.com/Ancestry.com. Problem was, whenever I read a key book, I'd give my copy away and never see it again.
Curt Allen, founder of Folio Corporation, and former CEO of MyFamily.com (chiefly responsible for our raising $90.5 million in venture capital) is at it again. (He's also my brother and is responsible for getting me into electronic publishing and the computer industry 16 years ago--and I'm darn proud of him!)
