The conventional wisdom is to find end users rather than trying to sell on a domaining forum. These domaining guys expect cheap prices because they're resellers. So, I tried finding end users. I had a pretty good domain a few years ago and I did my research and I wrote polite, personalised emails to those I thought might like to own the domain. I got friendly responses back - mainly asking me for a link if I did get around to developing it - but no one actually wanted to buy. It went into my little squirrely horde of things that might get done another day. And then I forgot about it.
Then one morning, several years later, the sky was blue and the sun was shining and an email came in asking if I'd consider selling the domain. And he offered $x,xxx for it. OK by me.
Now I have some other stuff I'd be happy to offload but I really don't know if it's worth the effort of unsolicited emails to potential end users. If someone really wants it, they'll contact me. Right?
Is there a better way to go about things?
