Domain names can be some amazing little buggers! That's why I love them so much! You never know what you are holding and who wants your one of a kind piece of virtual real estate. Domain names can be extremely powerful when used in marketing, as it can easily direct a massive amount of eyeballs in one location!
Mike Mann is reporting on his Facebook page that his company has sold* the domain name ComingTogether.com for $60,000 USD. A domain he purchased for $200 in late 2012. How did he sell it for $60K is likely your question! He asked for it! Not many would put a price tag of $60K on "that kind of domain" but Mike did and somebody felt it was worth it to pay it.
A lot of domain sales are often the perfect storm… they take several things coming together to make it all happen. This sale was no different!
These types of domain sales keep my domain dreams alive! They get me excited even though my domain dreams haven't been playing out for me lately, but my hopes and dreams stay alive because I still own a couple hundred domains.
Helpful facts that likely helped in the sale of ComingTogether.com
ComingTogether.com resolves to a "For Sale" landing page that clearly states the domain is for sale. A phone number is provided and a Buy Now link.
The domain was priced. (This can go either way, but I think pricing the domain helped sell it in this case) For some reason, "make offer" can be something that makes a person shy away, because they don't know what to offer.
Don't listen to others, listen to yourself. I wouldn't have priced this domain at $60K. Most I know in the domain world wouldn't have either. Mike did.
I think it is extremely vital that your domains landing page reflects that your domain name is for sale. Clean, clear and professional.
* sold can be a term I do not like to use when the domain name has yet to transfer ownership, but it's a fun word to use in an article!
