You have all heard my reviews of Sedo, Afternic, and Snapnames. Thus far I’ve had great experiences with both Afternic and Snapnames. Both of these services have reached-out to me and done everything they can to make my sales a success.
Recently I had a chance to speak with an account manager at Afternic (BuyDomains) who did an incredible job walking me through my domain pricing and working to optimize each of the domains I am selling through their service. I’m going to do a separate post on this but wanted to quickly say that I was very impressed with their service!
Snapnames as well has done a great job of making me feel like a valued client and they work with me over the phone to make sure I’m comfortable every step of the way.
Sedo, I’ve always found a bit clunky to use and with limited results. A while ago I ran a comparison between Sedo and Afternic. My "Featured Listing" Sedo auction received more hits than my Afternic auction but not a single interested buyer.
When I login to Sedo and try to make some basic changes to my domain it seems to always require a call to tech support. So, now I read that there is a big scandal involving Sedo and the domain music.mobi. The buyer of the domain wrote in to NamePros about it and I think everyone who uses (or is thinking of using) Sedo should have a read. This looks very fishy and makes me really think a bit more deeply about whether or not Sedo is a service I can trust.
As a blogger I am here to educate and inform without being overly biased. I am not saying that you shouldn’t use Sedo, but I do think that any domain investor should take a look at the link below and formulate your own opinion:
I’d be interested to hear people’s viewpoints on this as I think this is going to be a big issue for the next little while.
