This weekend Doron Vermaat, the founder of Efty announced the sale of Roost.io through their new “Price Upon Request” feature for Efty landing pages. With the announcement he also mentioned that .IO sales have now eclipsed .COM sales for him, here’s the tweet:
Along with announcing the sale Doron also noted that he’s seeing stronger sell-through for .IO than .COM this year. I’ve been hearing the same thing from domain investors all year, everyone’s still making good money with .COM, but the offers are really coming in strong for TLDs like .IO, .CO and more.
The “Price Upon Request” feature was announced by Efty in October of this year as an alternative to “Make Offer” landing pages. The addition of this feature came at the suggestion of Rick Schwartz and he commented on Doron’s tweet sharing his enthusiasm for this shift and also sharing a bit more about the advantage to this approach:
Rick points out a pretty interesting difference between “Make Offer” and “Price Upon Request” – it does change the conversation from asking the buyer for a dollar amount vs. actually getting to understand the buyer a bit more first.
I keep forgetting to update my landing pages to Price Upon Request so this is a good reminder for me to login to Efty and get this updated. Congrats to Doron – great sale and double congrats on it happening through a new feature that was added to Efty!
