    Over the next few months, I'm going to try selling domains to small business owners. An example of this would be dentists, doctors, etc. I'm initially going to work to just sell the domains and not worry about ranking them. So, I'm creating an email campaign to target business owners by scraping google so I can see who is advertising. I figure if they are using adwords, they know how important driving traffic to there site is and know that a memorable domain name can be very valuable. If anyone has experience in this area, I would love to hear from you since my past experience in domains has been only in crawling and finding expired domains for pbn's.

    Hi.
    I am curious to hear how this is going for you? Any updates?

    Tips:
    - It has been said that most domains sell to small biz owners for approx $2-3k, as this is the average budget for end-users. (this of course is just an average and entirely depends on the situation)
    - NameBio.com is a good resource to see what other similar names are selling for
    - I think a lot of SMB's are getting spammed via email already, so maybe try reaching them in some other manner? FB? LinkedIn? Outsourced Phone calls?

    As a domainer myself this can be done BUT must be done right. True some may have a budget for a domain at 2-3k BUT out of the blue from an email? Most will do $100-$500 on an unsolicited email. Of course anything can happen but you will find many sbo still dont understand WHY they need a better domain for their business. To them if it aint broke dont fix it.
