Namepros is a great forum that is filled with advice from thousands of members but more importantly I feel that most of the people there are overall good people.
They go above and beyond to answer questions and help you out as best as they can.
That’s why when I joined up several years ago, I knew it would be a place that I could come back to for continuous learning.
The reason for this post is just to inform you that if you are a member of the forum, you may be missing out on a simple feature that could potential help you with sales and acquisitions.
This is nothing revolutionary but helped me make a sale this week that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t do this this one little thing…
So on Namepros, they have something called “Alerts“. If you aren’t using them, you’re probably making a big mistake.
Well in my opinion, it’s like a heartbeat as to what’s going on. If you follow the right threads, you can literally see WHAT PEOPLE WANT in real time and try to FILL THEIR NEEDS.
That’s called business 101.
Here’s a look in my account to see all the alerts I’ve yet to look at:
There are many different sections in this forum but what you should focus on if you are trying to sell domains names is this section: Domain Names Wanted
This section is AMAZING because if you click “Watch forum” on the right side and select “New Threads” you will get updated whenever a member puts up a new thread in this section giving details about what type of domain they want to buy.
Do you know how amazing this is?
I don’t think you get it…
Sure, I knew about this section before but I am always jumping around from place to place. I never really stick to one spot. But after quickly “watching” this forum and getting alerts on any new threads that were created in this section, I was able to connect with a person looking for a domain name that I had in my possession.
Once you have something someone wants and you meet all their specifications, well now it’s basically just negotiating time.
This is not the only section you can set alerts up for.
I suggest you do it for these sections:
And even some more I may have missed.
But if I had to choose a section to stay tuned into, it would be the “wanted section”.
Even though many people may know about this, I know there are some people out there who may not have been locked in to this section in the forum so make sure you change that.
Keep an eye on it continuously.
