I have an ongoing auction for domain name and I would like tips on how to promote it and find the best buyer for it. The auction closes in 4 days so tips soon would be appreciated. If anyone knows of any widely read blogs or web sites out there that sometimes print domain sale notices and would save me a lot of trouble and footwork, I'd like to know about them.

As per the WebmasterWorld charter (which the link for currently gets me a 404 page) I am not listing it here. It's a high quality domain name in the smart-phone market so I'm trying to make sure I don't unload it for cheap by accident, my biggest fear of course.

Post at the forums that allow it: DomainState, NamePros, DNF, etc. Most domainer's interest in bidding drops at the first hint of paying real value/money. It's bargain hunting all the way for this crowd.

You might poke your nose into forums where people interested in the subject roost, as they may have websites and plan to build another/better one and could be looking for a better website name.

If you really want to be proactive then reach out to promising, but lower ranking, website operators and alert them to the opportunity . . to rebrand.

So try to find out where the enduser developers hang out and drop some hints. You may get banned or you may strike gold.

I really don't see any limits to what you can do to market the domain, excepting laws about spam. :-/

I'd also be certain to notify anyone who in the past expressed an interest in the domain, assuming you kept the emails. OTOH, if no one ever emailed you about the domain then that probably doesn't auger well for the auction.
