I like to share some of the domain sales emails I receive. The thought is that there just might be something you can gain from some of these as examples of what to do, or what not to do, in your own emails. This particular email looks to have been sent knowing that I am a domain owner as well. I don’t typically try to target domain owners in sales emails. I think there are better venues for that. I tend to reserve emails more for end user sales. Maybe I would if I had a business relationship with another domainer and thought that they may truly have an interest in a domain, but not out of the blue.
The major piece I feel this email lacks is that it doesn’t indicate at all why I might be interested in this domain. Are there high monthly searches, do I have a similar domain, is this my niche, etc. The email should not point out the main reason for contact as “I am selling this domain,” but instead, why it will benefit the person you are contacting.
I am contacting your company because I am selling the following domain name:
Please let me know if you would be interested in this domain.
Thanks, and best regards,
