It’s been said that when you write an email, you should be prepared for the whole world to read it. Probably a good philosophy since I’m sharing one I receive just the other day. This unsolicited email came from another domainer looking to sell me a name. I was targeted as a result of my domain appearing as a result in a Google search for the keyword terms. If I had to guess, this is a modified version torn right out of the book of Elliot’s suggested email templates for domain sales. I’ve sent out many similar emails myself, so I know the format well.
It’s interesting being on the receiving end of such an email. I don’t have much in the way of critiquing this one, other than the Google search volume that is stated below is the “broad” selection, not the “exact.” Other than that, it’s not bad. Maybe a little too long for some, but not for my tastes. One other suggestion I might make is to try to establish the value you are bring in the opening paragraph. That might be as far as many recipients will read, so best to capture them right away with what you can do for them. I also like to include the price.
I am contacting you because coolbars.com appears for the search term
“club suppliers”. I thought that you might be interested in knowing that
I am selling my domain name ClubSuppliers.com, since I do not currently
have the time to develop it myself.
ClubSuppliers.com is very well suited for your industry and owning such a
name will attract relevant customers and could give you an advantage
over competitors in the field.
Currently, Google shows a monthly search volume of 1000 for
club suppliers. Furthermore, if you add content to the website, Google
will boost your ranking for this search.
However, you can also choose not to develop the website and just have
this domain take visitors directly to your existing website. Not only
can owning this domain benefit you through additional online marketing
and search engine pick up like Google, Yahoo, etc., but it will also
grow in value as these types of .coms are becoming much harder to come
by and expensive to purchase.
I am offering “ClubSuppliers.com” at a very good price. Please let me know
if you’d like more info or to buy it. I thank you for your
consideration and look forward to hearing back from you soon.
By the way, my domain, CoolBars.com, has been sitting idle for a few years. I recently had a new logo created and I’m looking to relaunch the site soon in a new format. I’ll post more information on that when I get closer. I’ll post any other emails I come across that might be valuable. If you have any good ones you’ve had success with and would like to share, let me know and maybe I’ll post it.
