Hi All -

I have a domain.. .com, common dictionary word, registered in 1994 (i also have a bunch of associated .press, .deals, etc. domains that can go along with it but I doubt they will add value). There's a site behind it but minimal traffic (100-200 users per day) except when certain events happen. If would be interesting to specific types of companies and I'm seeking 5, or preferably 6, figures (I've received $100k offers before that I've turned down).

How do I find a good broker that can assess the value and do the work to reach the specific types of organizations that would pay the most for the domain? Is there a list or ranking site somewhere that could help me identify the ones that actually do the work as opposed to just putting it up for auction?

Read a few years of the weekly reports of domain name sales at DNJournal.com. You'll get an idea of the brokers who are helping to move domains to buyers and what, if any, area of expertise (verticals, etc) they specialize in. (Most don't assert vertical specialization but their actual reported sales my put things in a different light.)

You've got your homework to do. Go do it and report back. Really. If you want your best outcome do exactly what I've instructed . . and report back.

I'm not playing favorites but, I'll tell you to a certainty, that entities like GoD or similar 'sell your domain platforms' do NOT get the job done.

You might also peek at Elliot Silver's blog - DomainInvesting.com - to see which brokers list domains there periodically. As I recall it's some of the better / more well established (with sales records) players in the brokerage field.

my suggestion is to design a neat landing page for the domain with the 'for sale' banner.
imo a good domain will advertise for itself.
i would also list the domain on afternic.com-they promote your domain at various websites,whois sites etc.good coverage.
good luck.
