The idea of offering advertising-free For-Sale landing pages that are built for conversion and enable domain name investors to generate leads from end-users without paying a dollar in commissions has been one of the many drivers behind the success of Efty, the company I co-founded. I’m very excited to share that we just took another important step in building Efty into the one tool that every domainer will love to use!
Everyone knows that having a website is essential to show you, your domains and your business in its best light and look professional and trustworthy. The truth however, is that many domainers simply don’t have the time or resources to create a site, let a alone a full-fledge marketplace to present their inventory. Until now. The two new marketplace themes released today at Efty allow anyone to create a custom domain shop in minutes and start marketing their domain name portfolio using a custom domain and sell domains from a slick, professional looking and responsive marketplace without paying a dollar in commission.
The first two themes to hit the marketplace galley are:
The first marketplace above, using the Borgen theme is from domain investor Daniel Levi who you might know from one of DomainSherpa’s profitable flip interviews. The second site that uses the Sands is NameRockstar.com, which is my marketplace. I acquired the domain back in November and wrote about that here. The logo was bought for just $10 of Fiverr.
Besides using my own custom domain, I can use my own logo, write my own title and intro text, choose matching colors for the site’s text and navigation and pick a background from a gallery of high-quality images. Thanks to a deep integration with the Escrow.com platform I can also set a minimum offer amount and integrate BIN (buy it now) buttons.
Brandable enthusiast (such as myself!) will be thrilled to learn that the two themes let you showcase domains in both a table and tile view, with the tile view allowing you to highlight domains with logos directly in the search results and on the homepage. But, if you’re not a fan of using logo’s I can assure you that both themes work their magic just as well without the use of logos as you can see on UltraDomains.com for example.
