    I'm still a bass player, and will always be a bass player. But it's not my brand anymore, and the domain doesn't do anything for me currently except give me a cool email address. :smug:

    I'm in the process of making major shifts in my life, and am paring down belongings and raising cash as best I can.

    Does anyone have suggestions on how to sell this domain and get maximum return? I'm thinking a famous bass player might want it, or perhaps a store that specializes in basses. The domain value estimator (which is just an algorithm) guesses its value as about $1500, but I'm thinking it might be worth $10K to the right business or individual.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I'm not a marketing person by any stretch, but it seems if a domain doesn't have the business' name in it, it's not worth much.

    My guess it that anyone who wants the name badly enough to pay a significant amount for it will contact you directly. I wouldn't get my hopes up though.

    I’d lower my expectations if I were in your position. Best of luck to you.

    Pay-per-view cat videos... $1 per click. If you saw how I use YouTube you would know how quickly this would bankrupt me.

    Best of luck, my friend!

    Maybe a Bootsy Collins biopic or a movie chronicling the creation of the Space Bass will come out called "Bass is the Place," then you'll have a chance. Otherwise, you should aim a little lower.

    If you can add the letter "i" to the word "Place", I know some Trawlermen who would bite.

    OP, speaking as a digital marketing guy, I'm on Team "don't get your hopes up." Sorry, but best of luck.

    I don't really understand what "bass is the place" means. Seems like a random collection of words.

    It’s just not a good euphemism/play on words. Bass is the place. What place? Bass is where the funk lives? Sure. But bass is the place just isn’t interesting or clever.

  19. Write a cool site that attracts lots of traffic to that domain.

    Then you will be able to sell it all.
