What Do You Think Of This Project?

We’ve recently started work on a new website where we will be listing all of our Real Estate related domain names for sale – RealEstateDomains.com.au.

We’re putting this site together through Domain Market Pro, which is proving to be a great tool for easily building a domain name marketplace (read more about DMP in this article). Tom from DMP has been extremely helpful with the whole process, especially with facilitating a new feature allowing us to add GST for the Australian marketplace.

While it’s still very much a work in progress at the moment, we’d love to hear all your comments on where it’s heading: any positives, negatives, things that could be improved, ease of access / usability etc. – we’re open to all constructive criticism!

If you’re interested, check it out here and please feel free to leave us some feedback below.

Sales Pages

We’re still working on our sales page template, so at this stage we’re using AlbanyRealEstate.com.au as an example.

    The site look good, but will it actually result in more sales compared to just parking it?

    I’d say the key plus is the leasing option (who knows if that will increase revenue or not though but worth trying it), also if you can get a large phone number on there it will likely bump up sales. Many people SKIM READ and may miss it. Reduce the amount of text.

    Having said that the terms of the lease need to be made clear, I don’t think people will just sign up on the basis of a price and a PayPal link. Is there a buyout option? If not why would I lease it? Also the shopping carts seems to get confused, when I click lease it gives me the $150 month. Then when I click buy it still gives me $150 month.

      Domain Syndicates would probably have one of the largest portfolio of real estate domains. It was important to get a marketplace where they could all be listed. Some real estate agents have bought adjoining suburbs from us in the past.

      For Luke, it’s still a work very much in progress Paul – but thanks for your comments. He does need to work on the “lease” side of things, and you’ll see some changes to this side sooner rather than later. I much prefer “try before you buy” to lease, and that is something we are going to fine tune.

      i TOTALLY agree with paul on the phone number, also make sure its “click to call” thats the ” tel: ” tag for mobiles

      i’m also interested to see how the lease idea goes, i do see it as a growth area for the future.

    first impression, great, meaning i don’t want to “bounce ” straight off and go somewhere else.

    but the image is “american” to me, ( even if its not ! ) but thats being picky

    although i HATE ticker tape this one works for me.

    then we enter the welcome text, here’s where fonts help greatly, i suggest you read up on google fonts implementation.

    i stumbled on this link yesterday as well:
    https://designschool.canva.com/blog/minimalist-font/

    fonts set a tone/image/quality, use them sparingly and stick with what you have for your content words, fancy fonts in content sucks.

    pinterest searches are GREAT for seeing how fonts can be used to highlight your key messages.

    i searched “byron bay” with no results, we i removed the space i got results so you might want to look at that function as it will affect any town thats 2 words, eg ” port ……..”
    same went for ” investment property “.

    being picky , in premium i’d like to see the town in BOLD so it stands out, i found i was constantly re-reading the domain name.

    also its bland ! i’d add some different colour as its repetitive, this site is great for experimenting  http://paletton.com , put your “base RGB” (hex) into the bottom right then use the circles at the top left to see combos.

    other then that a good start, the concept could be a winner for many domainers

      Thanks for all the feedback Tim, some great points there! I’ll definitely look into the fonts in particular.

      @ Tim – I agree with you on the image (very American). In fact, I said exactly the same to Luke when I first saw it. 😉

    Well Ned, I got excited and just signed up on the pro deal – I confess I don’t have a clue about how to set up a website, so I’ve basically pulled me hair out over the months trying to work it out. The dashboard looks user friendly, and I’m sure if I bugger it up then my 11 year old son could do a better job at piecing it together than i.

    Good luck with your site mate, I’m sure Luke will make it amazing he’s a wizard with what he can do.

    Thanks

      Thanks Scott. And the “well done” all goes to Luke. It’s his project. And it’s not even half-way finished yet.

      The owner of DMP (Tom) is a great guy. If you have issues or need help, just email or skype him.

    It looks great Luke, nice work!

    It’s already looking very polished for “a work in progress”, so I’m sure it will get even better as you continue to tweak the site.

    Incidentally, I’m a big fan of real estate domains too – I’ve had some good sales in that space! 😀
