Selling a name without making a big deal
best way to do it

 1:47 am on Jun 22, 2011 (gmt 0)

I know it may sound oxymoronic considering that publicity might that one buyer and the 'right' price but how would you to sell a name, say to a company the size of Visa, Walmart or Amazon.com. Call the 1-800 support number ;)? TRY and find the decision maker on Linkedin? Fedex letter?

Any suggestions? I think it's a very good name and it can fit great with some companies. I have written down several ideas for the name under their ownership but don't know what to do.

"VP of Marketing" comes to mind.

Google, check the rankings to find a company that's reasonably web literate, and email the webmaster as well (asking them to forward it to the right person).

I find LinkedIn to be very helpful in these circumstances. Look for a VP of Business Development or similar.

+1 to bakedjake's suggestion.

The administrative contact in their existing domain's Whois might be a choice.

Phone numbers in Whois might get you past the switchboard and to a person knowing who to transfer your call.
