Many are interested in how and where you can sell a domain name, for most, this is a very relevant question.
I suggest actively discussing the best and most effective sales channels.
The main task, having collected the maximum number of responses and received some open statistics, is to understand where the maximum number of buyers comes from.
This will generally help determine how best to sell domain names.

Basically, try to convey to the "Morons" what a domain is
In the case of a successful lecture and PR of a thematic domain name, success is almost guaranteed, while it is better to have a laptop or printed articles about large domain sales with you.
this will spur the buyer to the right decision .The domain zone is absolutely not important. Everything is for sale, at a price that suits you.
When VPARIVANIYE domain in GZ, simply argue. You open any registrar -reseller who is in the top for the "Domain" category, show the client that we have a lot of registered domain zones in our country, dispel doubts and sell. moreover, in comparison of prices.


Selling a domain name is usually quite a lengthy process. In order to speed it up:
Use all possible sales methods. Place your domain on popular auctions, exchanges, forums, look for a buyer yourself, use social networks. Also create a landing page on your website with information that the domain name is for sale.

Don't set the price too high. Do not overstate the cost of the domain. A huge number of domain names are sold on the market, comparing prices for similar addresses, the buyer will immediately realize that your cost is overstated.
Always stay in touch. Give feedback as quickly as possible, show your interest and willingness to conduct a transaction.
And, of course, in order to sell the domain name profitably, prepare for the sale negotiations so that you can convincingly argue the value of your domain name and its value.
