    @frank-germany mentioned a concern about being flagged as spam if you do this.

    That seems like a reasonable concern, especially when you consider that anyone with basic email security knowledge knows not to click on links from unknown/untrusted sources.

    I avoid including links, but will sometimes instruct the buyer to visit the url directly if they would like to make the purchase.

    In the sense that most don't know what triggers spam filters, saying more may trigger flags. In most cases, say what you need to say.

    (If you feel spammy, you're probably being spammy.)

    This is a quick read about deliverability, it includes more of the technical aspects but can be applied to a simple gmail account and has a couple links to spam checking tools: https://matterapp.com/blog/how-emai...t-killed-matter-what-brought-us-back-to-life/


    Domaining is a business. The amount of people that avoid using their email signature, unsubscribe links, and templating is mind boggling.

    I understand we don't want to seem like a squatter on first-go, but you're more likely to get an answer/click-through if they can find your business, website, contact info just under your cold email. Once they hit your website/pixel, you can then re-market them or interest them in another domain that fits them better.

    If you've ever received an email from a broker, you'll know that they always have a professional email signature. They email 100s-1000s of people a day and rely on conversions — copy them.


    You don't need to seal the deal on the first touch. Just get that first answer back.

    Agreed.

    I’ve noticed when I’ve use links they more often than not go directly to spam... or at least I assume so because the email never gets opened.

    One thing that has worked for me when I put the domain name in the body of the email, is I separate the domain from the extension with one space ...

    DomainName .com

    It keeps it from automatically being converted into a link, and the potential buyer is smart enough to get the point.

    I’ve noticed these emails get opened more, and I’ve sold quite a few this way.
