Ballot.com: Premium Domain Now Available For Sale

With the 2012 election season approaching, we are pleased to announce that the premium domain Ballot.com is now available for sale.

The subject of ballots will be top of mind for many in the US, especially over the coming year. Interest in ballot systems has been building since some serious flaws were discovered with the electronic ballot system in the 2000 presidential elections. Ensuring that ballot systems are accurately collecting and reporting votes is a critical concern of the government, public interest groups, politicians, and especially the voters themselves.

Ballots Are a Huge Topic of Interest to Online Searchers

In the US alone, there are 1,220,000 searches for the term “ballot” each month on Google and this number is sure to grow as November gets closer. By owning the premium domain Ballot.com, you can capture the interest of this group and be a part of what promises to be an historic election.

The 2012 presidential election will coincide with the United States Senate elections where 33 races will be occurring as well as the United States House of Representatives elections to elect the members for the 113th Congress. The election will also encompass eleven gubernatorial races as well as many state legislature races. (source: Wikipedia)

Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions for Domain Sellers

Domain Selling Resolution #1:  Price Your Domains!

Did you know that priced domains are 10X more likely to sell than un-priced names?

Domain buyers expect a simple transaction when they find a domain name that they want. Many potential buyers may shy away from inquiring about a domain’s price since price requests are not a common ecommerce practice in many verticals. Pricing your domains up front makes transactions faster and easier for both parties.

Also, only priced domains are eligible to participate in Afternic’s Premium Promotion program, which offers exposure to over 35 Million potential buyers per month.

Domain Selling Resolution #2:  Park Your Domain with Afternic.

Parking your domain with a “Domain for Sale” link (see the Afternic example, below) has proven to increase sales velocity by 500% when the domain also has a Buy Now price. This is because the “Domain for Sale” link links your potential buyer directly with our award-winning sales team.  You can learn more about how to get this link on your domain by contacting us here.

Domain Selling Resolution #3: Clean Up Your Portfolio.

Make a habit of checking your portfolio regularly to make sure that it is only contains domains that are still available for sale, that your domains have updated prices, and that all of your contact information is current. By keeping your domain portfolio up-to-date, you can save yourself – and us – time that might be spent dealing with confused potential buyers.

Domain Selling Resolution #4:  Get Your Domain Appraised.

Pricing your domains appropriately is key to promoting their sale. You can trust that the Afternic appraisal service will improve the likelihood that your domain will sell for the best price: our domain appraisals are individually prepared by an appraisal team with more than 10 years of experience using Afternic’s proprietary DNI Scoring and Appraisal System™.

Domain Selling Resolution #5:  Make Sure All Your Domains Are Listed with Afternic.
