Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday April 21st, 2019

Apr 21 2019

Escrow.com

I’m a big fan of Efty.  It’s a great platform and for the price its a great solution to sell names.   But man do I get a ton of inquiries that are complete garbage.  It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even get excited when I get an inquiry anymore. And these are opted in inquiries.  Here are examples of what all the inquiries for  Seed.cc and Hosta.net look like

I know that Seed.cc is really close to Seedr.com which is a file sharing site so I get why it gets the inquires.  I really should have a parking page instead of a for sale lander.   Not sure what’s going on for Hosta.net.    And really none of this bothers me.  What bothers me is when people start a BIN on escrow.com and then never agree to terms.  That has happened quite a few times and happened yesterday.  I thought I sold a 4L.com for $8K when someone started an Escrow.com transaction.   I received the email and started counting my money.  Of course they never agreed to their side and its definitely not going to happen.  Nothing lost but my time but they got me emotionally involved and that pisses me off.   And of note.  Every single one of these crazy offers and fake BIN are from overseas.   Not saying there aren’t some great overseas buyers.  Just saying that my hopes of getting a deal done change based on what country the other party is from.   Hear are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on

    I get a bunch of fake inquiries too. When I see a “confirmed inquiry” email come thru I always guess if it’s real or fake. I now don’t get too excited until I actually read the inquiry to see what it contains.

    Hi Shane, thanks for sharing.

    As for the inquiries, we’ve gotten pretty good at blocking anything that is outright spam these days (we even created a folder in your account for anything that is labeled as such so you can still check those inquiries that we filtered out). From the examples you’re sharing it seems we’re dealing with confused visitors that are expecting some sort of service or product on the domain name they are visiting. Most of us have a domain name or two like that in the portfolio. Often there was a developed site on it in a previous life, or as you already pointed out, the domain name is very similar to an established website out there that gets lots of traffic.

    I sometimes get inquiries in Scan.co from people who have bought gaming software via Scan.co.uk – asking me about their order.

    There are a couple of things we suggest.
    1. If the domain name gets good traffic (you can check this with the Google Analytics integration we offer) you might consider putting up a parked page showing ads and then link the “for-sale” banner back to your Efty inquiry page. This way, only interested buyers for the domain name should show up in your inquiries. We actually build an entire feature around this strategy which you can read about here: https://blog.efty.com/2018/07/24/pay-per-click-parking-efty-heres-the-magic-link/
    2. Consider switching to a different For-Sale landing page template. The Nobo theme, for example, forces visitors to input an offer amount first before it brings up the form. It’s a great way to filter out the “idiots”. Check Scan.co to see this template in action.

    As for the deadbeat escrow transaction. This issue is easily solved by switching to our new Escrow Pay integration. This forces buyers to complete the entire signup process and escrow agreement on the Escrow.com website BEFORE the actual escrow is initiated. Here’s the information you need on that: https://blog.efty.com/2018/11/27/escrow-pay-a-slicker-and-more-simple-integration-of-escrow-com-in-efty/

    We’ll be sunsetting the old integration soon.

    Thanks again for the feedback 🙂

    I switched to the Uniregistry banners which the customer needs to click first to get to the contact form. Had to switch anyway as having it land on the contact form results in a blank page. The adblockers do this for some reason and the % individuals using them is growing (and will be 100% sooner or later) so this needs to be tested for. Bodis have this problem too. Inquiries on 300 names went from 1/day to 1 or 2/week, but hardly any confused or spam inquiries anymore.

    The industry needs much better simple For Sale Landers.
    Nothing fancy. Nothing that needs Q & A on how to use.
    The old GoDaddy Instapages were AWESOME all around (simplicity, search results, etc.)
    I think I sold almost all my names in the past through that.
