How to use Why Park’s Web Directory?

December 16, 2010

A few days ago I landed a top resume company as a web directory listing on coverletterservices.com. I believe the web listing is well worth their money because a visitor clicked on the web listing link to visit the resume company within 8 hours. Most companies have to pay 10 times that amount to generate one lead. Why Park’s web directory is a great way to make revenue from your domains while you search for a buyer.

Selling domains to end-users is not an easy task. The best strategy to selling domains is to know the buyer. That means you have to invest time into building a business relationship, or offer an end-user information that will help them to improve their business.

You can use Estibot’s lead generator to sell domains. However, you’ll have to pay $39.99 to upgrade your account. Another alternative to finding a buyer is to search the Yellow Pages to find relevant companies.

The two approaches seem effective, but I don’t think they’re full proof enough, even if you’re trying to sell a premium domain. It puzzles me when I read DN Journal every Wednesday to review domain sales for the previous week. Are people actually paying high prices for various domains?

DN Journal reports which domains sell every week. Domain companies and private sellers furnish the sales report to the DN Journal, and then it is published in the “Domain Sales” section.

Surely enough, the three gift card .org domains that sold for $4500 apiece were purchased by the same buyer. I see the same thing happen on Sedo. A buyer will bid an identical price for three domains, no matter their extension and value. A seller may receive $1000 apiece for a .net, .org and a .info.

Domains are hard to sell around the holiday season. Companies are not as willing to make an offer, and are too selective on what they want. For the most part, these companies are looking to buy diamonds with peanuts.

Sellers are not as capable of attracting interest to their prized domains. Instead of striking out on selling to an end-user at this point in time, i recommend you invest time into using the Why Park web directory to make revenue. If you list 10 companies at $20 per month, you’ll net $120 per month after Why Park takes their $5 per listing fee, and 15% of the overall cost of the listing. That’s a nice chunk of change for a domain that only cost you between $2-12 to register.

Good business is about making money with finding a market. The web directory is a good business with long-term gains. Imagine having 100 paid listings for many different categories. You can make $1200 a month off one domain. It’s not as easy said as done. You have to put in the work to find businesses to list.

Review your domain portfolio to find the domains which you think have the potential to function as a web directory. Any service domain will entice a company to list, especially when they want to reduce their advertising costs. $20 per month is very little to pay for a listing. I only charge $20 because I have to pay $8 to Why Park. Otherwise, I would probably charge a little less.

GEO domains targeting rentals, apartments, restaurants, hotels, and services are the best to use to build a web directory. I recommend you build interest in a company based on reducing their advertising costs. Why? Companies spend a ton of money on affiliate programs, bidding on keywords, and using other forms of print and commercial advertising to promote their product and or services. The web directory is a simple solution to reducing advertising cost, while also pushing potential leads to the company.

BlackLimoService.com is taking limousine listings

December 9, 2010

I added the web directory app to BlackLimoService.com. Limousine companies can get listed as a prom limousine, airport limousine, or as a limousine service.

TaxiSchools.com was the first domain to display the “get listed” option. Then, I added the web directory app to CoverLetterWriters.com and CoverLetterServices.com.

Why Park’s web directory is less than 3 months old. There is plenty of room for the app to grow. My goal is to build all my service domains into web directory listings. The following domains will be feature the web directory app in the next few weeks:

LasVegasEscortService.net
CurriculumVitaeService.com
CurriculumVitaeServices.com
CvResumeServices.com
iResumeServices.com
ResumeServices.co
ProfessionalResumeService.net
ResumeCoverLetterService.com
ResumeServiceWriting.com
ProfessionalHairService.com
ProfessionalHairServices.com
ManicureServices.com
PedicureServices.com
PedicureService.com

Service domains usually generate good traffic. I’m confident there is demand to get listed on these domains. I will keep you all posted. Thanks.
